In my last article, I told you about the products I use around my apartment for a more eco-friendly home that cuts back on waste. This week, I have a similar theme to tackle. I’ve decided to write about the cosmetics and personal hygiene products that I have been using since I started making my way towards a greener lifestyle!
I don’t often write about Mauritius around here, but I lived on the island for 7 years and my memories there make up a big part of my childhood. “Rougail saucisse” is a classic Mauritian dish that is very easy to make but requires some patience as each part of the meal needs to simmer so as to acquire maximum flavour.
***The Beatles’ album, Revolver, was released 50 years ago today. I was not aware of this of course, until Maxime told me about it. So here’s his article on this great album! ***
Some DIY projects demand a lot of attention, depending how used to the craft you are and how objectively difficult it is. In my case, one vivid daydream is enough for me to produce a rather holey woolen scarf that I never really know how to fix. When that happens, I take it to the old lady at the wool store who clicks the needles and fills in the hole in a flash before handing the scarf-to-be back to me, never showing me how to fix it myself. I think she secretly likes the power she has over me by being my scarf-repairer.

Let’s not kid ourselves here: there is no way a ten entries list will do justice to the most iconic TV show of all time. The Simpsons, by the way it blended animation, social commentary, and brilliant humour, quickly became one of the most watched and beloved cartoons of the nineties. That being said, there has been criticism as to how the show’s quality has been dwindling, especially during the 21st century. And today, as the Simpsons are onto an impressive, but somewhat formulaic 28th season, one might want to be reminded why this show used to be so great.
I dabbled in vegan cooking for the very first time last weekend! My boyfriend Maxime was recently diagnosed with a series of food intolerances that make traditional cooking less than simple. Being the wonderful girlfriend I am, I took upon myself to prove to him that life without wheat, cow, sheep and goat’s milk, beer, agar agar, egg whites, figs, corn, nuts and wheat yeast did not have to be tasteless. Today’s recipe convinced him of the fact: as they say, the proof is in the pudding!
