Conversations | Changing

Hey there!! So, how have you been?

I've been thinking about blog post ideas and also writing some posts, but not feeling like publish them. But today I feel like sharing a text that I started to write weeks ago and I've been writing day by day, as I was finding and feeling things. Let's ready it?

I always saw myself as curious and always thought a lot about things, but now I'm on a whole new level. I'm constantly craving for new information.

I find myself constantly searching for new things, wanting to see more and learn more. Films, series, youtube channels, blogs, plant-based lifestyle, health, ethics, everything. At the same time I want to be aware of the things I already know, but I can't find time for everything. As always time is on my way, against me, taking advance and winning. I know I can't control it so the only way is to adapt.

I think this is just a result of me wanting to change so much and be the best person I can. Sometimes I feel I may be exaggerating, but I also feel I should and can do more, I can be better so I think I should do everything I can to accomplish that.

I've been learning a lot about the environment, healthy living and some things about the clothing industry. Discovering issues I didn't even know existed. Some of them make me feel cheated by society and asking 'why this information is not on the news?' or 'why I never thought about this?'. Things that mess up with my mind

The only situation I can think of to explain what I'm feeling is saying that I wish I could clear my mind, go to an empty place by myself and start adding what I need around me. I feel that I need to erase everything, but I also feel that I need this background and everything I'm going through right now to things make sense (??).

I'm okay. Happy to discover these things, but I need to learn to organize them in my life. My mind is a mess, in some aspects a happy mess but not completely happy and understanding what's going on.

I'm becoming more conscious of the things around me and especially of the ones I can't physically see, but I know they happen somewhere. I've been thinking more and more about the impact my lifestyle has on others people's lives.
I'm re-evaluating my values and what I believe on. I'm finally starting to think about my dreams and how to make them happen.
All these things are given me a new perspective on life. I'm changing and apart from not knowing exactly what to do, I'm kind of loving it. I feel like a whole new person.

I'm still trying to understand all these things but later on I would love to share them in the blog.
As I don't feel I can talk about this to people around me, I like to write about it and share it here because I feel I'm actually sharing it with someone and it just feels good putting my thoughts and feelings out there.

This was all about me, but and what about you? Have you ever feel like this? Any changes recently? Which new information have you been discovering? And how you deal with it?

Also, speaking of change, I'm thinking of changing the comment system and start using Disqus, but what do you think? Should I?

Well, a lot of questions on this post but I really would like to read your answers and get to know your opinions. So please say something

Lots of hugs, A

James Bay

James Bay appeared on my youtube subscriptions feed last year with Forever because of BBC Radio 1 and got me like 'hum I don't know this guy so let's check him out', but I had no idea I was going to fell in love this much.

I'm actually listening his songs right now! On repeat since I woke up!

I think If You Ever Want To Be In Love is my favourite song, somehow it puts me in a good mood and I can't help dancing a little bit and singing along. But I absolutely love Let It Go, Move Together, Stealing Cars, When We Were On Fire, Heavy Handed, Hold Back The River, Hear Your Heart and I guess all the others songs too.

I don't have much more to say about James Bay. I just love him, his long hair and his hat, his voice and his songs. I'm mean, he is pretty awesome!

Fingers crossed I'm seeing him and also Sam Smith live in July!!

Are you a James Bay fan? Let me know what you think about his songs

Lots of hugs, A

Kitchen | Banana Nice Cream

I'm sure you already know about banana nice cream because it's all around the internet but if not, this post is for you. 

I only came across nice creams when I was thinking about changing my eating habits. Until then, I had no idea bananas had this power. I wasn't a plant eater when I first tried nice cream, but I loved it and got me like 'Yeah, I can totally live without ice cream'

I don't know about you, but I always loved ice cream, but I also always felt guilty after eating it or restricted the amount I could eat. But not anymore

If you love ice cream I'm sure you'll love nice cream. Why wouldn't you? No bad sugars, no dairy, no fats, no preservatives or anything unhealthy. It's nice, healthy and delicious!! 

This is so simple and easy to do that I don't even know if I can call it a recipe. Simply blend frozen bananas and you get left with a super rich, creamy and yummy frozen treat. Yeah, that simple!

- peel, cut and freeze ripe bananas -

- blend the bananas until cream texture -  


I love plain banana nice cream but you can use it as a base and for extra flavour add more ingredients (blueberries are amazing) and toppings.
Also, if you don't like bananas you can mix instead mangos, papayas, persimmons. There's plenty of recipes out there!!

Check out Steph's instagram for the most good looking nice creams

Spring is coming (yay). The weather is getting warmer and I can't wait to eat banana nice cream for breakfast and lunch without freezing!!

Have you ever tried banana nice cream? If not, please give it a try

Lots of hugs, A

A 30-day challenge

Hiii!! I hope you're doing great!
For today I just have a super quick and short post.

I'm starting a 30-day challenge tomorrow and I feel like sharing it with you, so here I am. It's a minimalism challenge that I randomly came across in January on Bloglovin and got me intrigued by Minimalism. By the way, anyone interested in Minimalism?

I love this kind of daily challenges and this one seems pretty interesting so I'm super curious to see what changes and how I'm going to feel during and after it. 

Into Mind

Do you like this kind of challenges? Also, did you know this particular challenge?
Is anyone joining me?

Happy new month! :)

Lots of hugs, A
