happy (rainy) weekend! I hope you are all doing great. What plans do you have?
Please check out my friend Celeste's Five Things as well. She rocks!
1. Books in general.
I realize every day that books make me so unbelievably happy. Just thinking about all the books in this world makes me smile. Maybe that sounds stupid but that is how I feel. Just got new reading material and can't wait to start! Thanks so much for making my day, Em!
2. Vegan whipped cream.
I wasn't even a huge fan of whipped cream before I went vegan but I discovered this in a store and had to try it and now I drink coffee with whipped cream or hot chocolate with whipped cream all the time. I even add some to my banana smoothie. I am a bit addicted.
3. This hand cream.
I have very dry skin so especially in fall/winter I use a lot of hand cream. I recently discovered this gem, it is vegan and smells like pomegranate. Perfect. Plus it is really effective and makes my hands feel so soft!
4. Some terrible news.
I got really sick and angry when I read the headline: "Spanish Senate declares bullfighting to be cultural patrimony". Yes, of course. That is what the world needs. More cruelty. Justified by declaring it a cultural patrimony. I think I have heard this excuse before. You can read more about it here. Some idiot described bullfighting as "a national and popular art-form for excellence and a basis for the development of Spanish society." I would like to meet that sick guy.
5. Vegan cheese cake.
My next challenge. I want to bake a vegan cheese cake. I have always loved cheese cakes and that is one of the few things I miss. I really had no problems going vegan and I don't miss a lot of things but I would definitely love to eat some "cheese" cake again. Keep your fingers crossed!
Have a happy weekend!
