I often hear too much from women of all ages about covering up problem spots, with make-up. They linger on the things that they don’t like about their faces, and they try to work out only so that they can fit into a dress. And these women fill their minds up with thoughts of self-hate just because they don’t look like a photoshopped model in a glossy magazine.
I see advertisements and articles about the next most ridiculous diet craze, and hear about women stuffing themselves in the weirdest death-trap contraptions to slim and shape their bodies. However, what I want to tell them is that all that silly stuff doesn’t truly matter. Read the rest of this page »
|Some random girl:||*pulls in to KFC drive-thru* Umm, do you guys, like, have chicken?
So here’s a vegan taco recipe that I found onBonAppetite.com by Taqueria Los Gorditos. It uses Soyrizo, or a soy chorizo, that tastes and cooks like the real deal. Usually chorizo is sort of a spicy meat that you can cook and serve alongside scrambled tofu or eggs, stuff inside tacos or use as a sort of spicy sausage.
Here’s What You Will Need:
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 onion, sliced
2 teaspoons chopped seeded jalapeño chile
1 12-ounce package soy chorizo (sometimes labeled Soyrizo), casing removed
1 15.4-ounce to 16-ounce can vegetarian refried black beans
12 corn tortillas, warm
Chopped fresh cilantro Read the rest of this page »
Back at the #AceHotel. #VodkaTonic (at The Amigo Room at Ace Hotel & Swim Club)
Our #kitten, @sonyaloweliske, trying to figure out what #rain is.
It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.
Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.
The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of many children playing at the site instead of attending school.
When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.
Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.
Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.
There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.
Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.
Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.
One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.
"As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being."
My cat just rammed her nose into my forehead, licked my hair and then punched me hard in the face. #SoDone
