Q:Hi lovely lady,
I was wondering if becoming a vegetarian or vegan is a good way to lose weight?
My goal is to become a lot healthier and any weight loss is a bonus, so I was wondering if becoming vegetarian or vegan would be beneficial in the long run?
Sorry if that didn't make much sense at all.
Well, it depends how you do it. Some Vegos gain weight if they eat a lot of bread.
It is definitely a healthier decision. Cutting out meat and dairy is VERY beneficial in the long run. Your whole body runs better.
Q:Are you going to Coachella?
No, I don’t think so … there aren’t any bands I like playing - but I will go if someone gets me a free ticket haha!
Q:Please help me reach mi goal of $100 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. i lost a friend to suicide three years ago now. Even if you don't donate can you help spread mi message. the link to mi donor page:
I will post it on my blog for you. xxxxx
Q:I've been debating becoming a vegan for a while, but what's the difference between vegan and vegetarian? I mean, I know a vegan doesn't eat or use anything that's from an animal, and a vegetarian only doesn't eat meat, but is there anything else?
Also, your list is brilliant, it helped me out a lot. You should add what you lose by not eating meat, though. Like, vitamins and stuff. If you lose anything, I'm really not entirely sure.
That is pretty much it - Vegetarians don’t eat meat and Vegans try not to use or eat any animal products.
You don’t lose anything… you just need to make sure you’re getting all your vitamins. I listed all the important ones on the page. :)
Where did you get that "coffee" Firefox shirt!?!?! I NEED IT! lol I just their website & it was nowhere to be found!! *GASP*
Mine is actually different from “I Need Coffee”… It says Be Afraid, I don’t know if they’re still in stock.
You could try ebay? xxx
Q:Thank you very much for your reply ^^ I agree with what you said. It will definetly never be easy. I've been in a long distance relationship for over 3 years now and I hardly get to see my boyfriend, which makes things damn hard sometimes. But I will move to his country in August to start university!!! So I wish everything will be easier then again :3
And I love the quote you posted. I'm definetly going to remember it.
And I gotta admit. I just found your blog yesterday and I probably spent allday on it now DX Totally love all of your posts. You are really an inspiration!! xoxo
That is great - you guys have gotten through three years of being apart!! That is amazing!
And now you’re on the countdown until you can be together - I wish you both the best!
Q:I'm curious. What are your thoughts on long distance relationships? xoxo
I don’t really have any, I think all situations are different for everyone.
Some will work, some won’t. I don’t think it will ever be easy, though.
“Distance does for love what a breeze does to a flame - it extinguishes the weak and illuminates the strong.”
You're kinda great ;) You get ths heaps, but you're everything I inspire to be... creative, confident, and most of all, able to stand up for your beliefs. I want to be able to stand up in class when some plastic popular person says 'You're gay if you do that!' or 'Ew! She's leso!' and go right off at them.
...Or die my hair the colour I want and wear things that make me happy :)
Just saying... thankyou for being such a great role model, and I pity the fool who tries to undermine your beliefs.
Cas pretty much everything you reply with is WIN.
Thank you lovely!!!
Well, you know when I was in high school I was definitely not the girl who was confident enough to stand up and say what I wanted. I worked really hard to get confident and find out who I am and what I want - but I am so glad that I can help other people who are younger than me find that earlier than I did.
I wanted to dye my hair purple when I was 16, and never had the guts to do it. Isn’t that a shame? I cared what people thought way too often.
But my advice, is to just go out and do whatever the hell you want. In 5 years, most of those “plastic people” will have no lives. Just wait and see. xxx
Q:I don't get why is there such hate/incomprhension towards equalism. Don't we all fight for the same thing in the end? How did you came accross the notion btw?
I don’t either - but a lot of people can be selfish I guess. A lot of people still hate certain races for the colour of their skin and a lot of people are still against homosexuals.
That is changing though, and I think one day these things won’t even matter.
My boy and I used to talk about equality all the time - and the social repression of Men. It’s a really interesting subject.
How they have to wear certain clothing to be perceived “manly” enough etc.
I also think the word “Feminism” implies a movement only for Women’s rights, when there is just so much more to it.
Everyone should have equal rights.
Q:You are such an inspiration to so many of us on Tumblr. And to think you are a fellow Aussie! So proud. Where do you get your inspiration from? What mediums influence you?
Why hello and thank you!
My inspiration comes from so many mediums… popular culture, the sky on a clear night, anyone who has ever stood up for what they believed in regardless of what anyone else thought, the way the world looks from a moving vehicle, people who have built themselves up from nothing, Brittney Yabs (saveyourscissorsxx) disney films, Kelli Lord (southforthewinter) driving through Hollywood, goldfish, riot grrrls, people doing selfless acts, existentialism, gothic paintings and architecture, jazz, love, Kieran Adele (beautyindecay), my home town, punk rock, William Shakespeare, juxtaposition, Stephen Hawking, Courtney Love, grave yards, anything that is overly stylised, every person I have ever met has influenced me in some way - some good and some bad… but I think we learn something from everyone we come into contact with.
“I am the combined effort of everyone I have ever known.” - Chuck Palahniuk.
I truly believe this, everything I have seen that I liked I tried to incorporate that in to who I am…
“Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.”
I know this is a weird concept - because who are you really? I ask myself this all the time. I think we all have to find everything that inspires us, impresses us and is sonically and/ or aesthetically pleasing to us and incorporate that into our lives, whilst staying true to yourself and attempting to be the best person you can be.
I hope I didn’t get too far off track ha ha. Thank you for the lovely message! xxx
