Nothing is permanent. This is beautiful <3
Woah…and who is the artist? This is wonderful!
I went outside and left my boots at the gate to the forest. I spent a little while building faerie houses in the trees, I could feel the cold cold earth beneath my feet. The land breathed and let me in, it nourished me and brought me back to life again. :)
Art of the Toilet Paper Roll by JUNIOR FRITZ JACQUET
French artist Junior Fritz Jacquet has been fascinated by paper since a very young age. Among various other paper and cardboard creations, he transforms plain toilet paper rolls into remarkable miniature masks. His technique is inspired by origami, in that it uses a single piece and folds it into a shape, but has a unique smoothness that deviates from the sharpness and jagged edges of origami, creating shapes that are astonishingly human. The masks are sculpted by hand, then coated with shellac and different pigments. A testament to the power of taking something incredibly simple and transforming it into something impressively expressive, each piece exudes a complexity of human emotion conveyed in just a few brilliantly orchestrated folds.
yes yes yes I would loooove a unicycle :)
I try to eat a largely vegan diet, although I do eat cheese and yogurt sometimes as well as the odd egg from the ducks/hens out in the garden. I usually only eat cheese if I am out for a meal and have no other choice or if someone is cooking for me. I only eat organic natural yogurt for the probiotics, as I tend to get bad bloating and gas and stomach pains if I eat too much veg/salad/greens/raw foods etc. I figure if the cow is happy and is eating good foods itself, then why not munch a little dairy?
I thought some of you might be interested to see how easy, nutritious and yummy a vegan meal can be! This was my dinner tonight, and I am totally stuffed!
- 1 slice of rye bread with soya margarine and marmite (yeast spread)
- mixed lettuce leaves, rocket, celery and mung beans tossed in sesame oil, groundnut oil, lemon juice, marjoram, pepper, cumin, mixed seeds and ground flax seed
- sliced red pepper
- lightly steamed carrot and leek straight from the garden
- lightly steamed mushrooms
- celery topped with organic no added salt peanut butter (nom nom nom…)
- a mug of dandelion, lemon and ginger tea :)
- a couple of teaspoons of organic natural yogurt
Experiment, have a day or 2 off from eating animal sourced foods. Read up on nutrition and learn how to feed your body with love and care :) My aim at each meal is to try and have as much colour as possible! The more colour usually means more nutrients and vitamins! Snack on chooped fresh fruit topped with ginger, vanilla, cinnamon and other yummy spices! Add chooped or ground nuts and a dollop of yogurt or honey if you wish. Spend that extra little bit on organic free range dairy if you can’t avoid it. How about trying oat milk, rice milk or almond milk with your cereal? Its a lot sweeter than cow’s milk which makes porridge or museli taste super awesome :) try buying so agave syrup, a natural low GI sweetener which can be added to anything, just like honey. Tastes amazing in stir fries and curries too!
Anyway, enough food rambles. I get a bit excited and enthusiastic about food sometimes. Remember, you are what you eat. Food is medicine, listen to your body :)
Love and happiness my furry friends xoxo

If you find yourself staring blankly at the screen watching south park for 3 hours, or hollyoaks, or the new season of whatevertakesyourfancy then consider spending that time watching this. It is totally fascinating. I agree that there is a lot of information and I do not necessarily agree with all of it but the fundamentals are very very important and it is something every single person should consider. If you turn it on, watch it through to the end. You will learn something, I promise. Please share <3
