As you saw in my little sneak peek post, this year’s summer vacation was spent in the picturesque island country of Malta. I’m planning a more detailed post on my time there, but I wanted to start with a post about all the fantastic vegan food I had there. Malta is by no means a vegan paradise, and options are actually fairly limited (especially when compared with Hamburg and Warsaw), but it helps to keep in mind that Malta is actually the smallest country in the EU. This meant that we kept going back to the same few places again and again if we found them to provide good vegan food.
In discussions about racism, the focus is usually on mainstream society and its treatment of ethnic minorities. What is not usually discussed is the racism within those communities themselves.
Sorry for the longer absence! Before I leave on a longer trip, I usually schedule some posts to go up during my absence. This time, however, the night before we left for Malta, I was victim of a home invasion. Needless to say, I was a bit too shaken up to think about blogging. After spending a week in Malta, I can at least give you a sneak peek into our Malta trip before a more detailed post goes up in the future.
I recently watched the documentary “The Human Experiment” and was quite shocked at the toxins that are found in a lot of products that we use on a daily basis. Some things are, of course, more difficult to change, such as furniture (most of us can’t really afford to buy all new furniture just because we saw a documentary that scared us). With other things, however, it’s a lot easier, one such thing being makeup. It’s a matter of fact that we don’t actually need makeup so why don’t we try to lower the number of products we buy and make sure that we invest more in our health? That’s why it’s my new mission to try and buy only toxin-free makeup from now on. There are quite a few brands who make so-called “natural” makeup, and there are several products that look fairly interesting. Of course, they also have to be vegan and cruelty-free which makes the list a bit smaller, but I prefer that, as it gives me a better overview.
