Today I woke up feeling good- my mouth wasn’t sore, my tongue was able to move freely and I enjoyed some cereal for the first time in a week. Hooray! I filmed a quick video of me blabbing away- and showing off the freedom that I had with my tongue split now :D
I spent the day hiding inside, just to chill + lurk the internet. I’ve been so busy recently, it was nice to spend a day by mysElf, being lazy. Actually, that’s a lie, I DID leave the house to go get coffee with Alex before coming back again. It was while I was getting dressed, I was pleasantly surprised.
I was rummaging through my wardrobe when I came across a pair of pants that I had bought sometime last year- before I was vegan, and was still quite caught up in drinking and smoking. When I had bought them, they were quite tight fitting, even uncomfortable to wear. They used to cut into my hips, and bunch painfully behind my knees- so much so, that I wore them twice and then just buried them in my clothes. Putting them on today made me realise how much of a positive choice going vegan/quitting drinking and smoking has been for me- they fit loosely and look fantastic!
Seriously, I can’t sing the praises of detoxing your life like that enough. Try not getting shitfaced one weekend and see how good you feel, give some of my vegan recipes a crack, and have one vegetarian day a week, for a month. You’ll definitely see changes!
When I originally started Tentacles and Teacups, I was torn between two ideas- do a generic ‘fashion’ blog’ with my own personal twist, or do an ‘Agony Aunt’ advice column. I obviously went with the first idea, but it would seem that all wasn’t lost. While perusing the blogosphere today, I stumbled upon a blog that had had pretty much exactly the same idea as me- except, had executed WAY better than I ever could. Check it out heeere!
Before I go, I remember a while ago, I posted about an upcoming ‘project’ I had- well, it’s not so much a project as an experience. Do you think you could go a month without purchasing ANY new clothes (excepting personal items like underwear), and buying everything you need clotheswise from a thrift shop? I’m looking for a group of people to take the ‘one month thrift pledge’ with- every day, I’ll post my own thrifted outfits, plus those of whoever else involved to show people you don’t NEED new to look fabulous!
Who’s down? Drop me a line! I’m looking to start this soon! :D
