17.entry: I Would Rather Go (Half) Naked Than Wear REAL Fur!

¨Hello lovely readers,

"When you love something, set it free!"

On all the pictures of me, I am wearing a FAKE fur vest and FAKE fur hat from H&M, to show you, that you can look good in Fakes! 

So today I decided to spice things up a bit. Because my passion for animals overgrows my passion for fashion I have decided to dedicate this blog post to animals, where I believe we should not kill animals for fur, especially if the animal is endangered! I know PETA is a major activists group that fights against animal killing, but my view is a bit different from where they stand. I believe in the circle of life. One must die for the other to survive. It has always been like that, and it will go on like this for thousands and thousands of years, if we, humans, don't kill everything that moves of course.

So first let me say that I eat meat and I feel we can kill animals for our own survival and we should use everything that animals offer us, their meat, skin, bones and so on. But I am highly against torturing animals for fur. Because they skin live animals and throw them on a pile of alive skinned animals, where they slowly die in a painful way. This is what inspired my against fur campaign. The way this animals are killed is inhumane and disturbing.

The most disturbing fact is that we are to be blamed for the highest number of animal extinction. So lets stop killing endangered animals for their beautiful fur, because it will never look as good on us as it does on them. We have to draw line at some point, and for me is torturing animals for fashion. If you cant find beauty in your own skin, then for sure you wont in someone else's. I know we wear leather and other stuff made from animals, but like H&M, I have the policy, if you are gonna kill the cow, eat the meat and use the skin for leather, that's survival.

So instead of wearing REAL fur, wear FAKE fur, it looks as good and nobody gets to die slowly and painful death for it.

Here is a short video where Eva Mendes, a spokesperson for Peta, tells how animals are cruelly caught and killed for fur and then tossed aside! I get chills when I see these videos. How can we allow this to happen on Earth, the inhumane killing and torturing poor animals who are defenceless against human`s cruelty. That is what I wanna do, I want to speak for them, for the poor animals, who cant say what bothers them, they can only show what they feel with their behaviour. And we, "the superior beings", think we can just go around killing them for our own fun and enjoyment. This is so wrong. How can we think we are superior beings when we cant event adopt to live with each other, and animals have adopted to live in environments so difficult, it would kill us in seconds. I know we are smart, but lets not use our intelligence for the destruction of the nature.

So I believe we should stop this useless animal killings and rather start to understand them and try to live with them. And let them be. especially all the tigers, minx, lions, wolfs, foxes, leopards, jaguars who are being hunted for their amazing fur. And lets not forget about snakes and crocodiles. I believe we have became so intelligent that we can produce fur and leather that looks as it were real, so why would you still want to buy a real one? Think of all the pain animals are in when your fur coat is being made. Don't be associate to a murder. Don't support fur business! Don't buy real fur! If you do, even more beautiful animals are going to be killed because you want to feel good in somebody else's fur. It is just not fair. We have the power to destroy, but also we have the power to save the world. Nobody else will, but we, humans. We have the gun power and all other kinds of weapons that can overrule even an elephant, but that doesn't give us the right to use it. Think about that. Who are we, to be the judge on who lives and who dies? What gives us the power to go around killing everything! Lets not be the reason of destruction of everything that is beautiful.

So save the world and wear fake fur and feel good in your own skin. Because that is the only way you will be happy. Say no to murder! Say yes to animals! Sadly we make the choices of who dies and who lives, so be smart and “Don't do unto others what you don't want others to do unto you.”!!

I can state I do not support animal torture and wasteful killing and I will fight for the animals rights, so we can coexist. So my children, and my children`s children will get to see alive tigers and leopards in the wild. Remember we have the power to destroy, but also the power to heal! So on which side do you want to be in the history of the world? The one that will destroy or heal our planet? Think again! 

Stay happy and wear Fake fur!

16.entry: This year it is all about balance: Yin and Yang

Hello lovely readers,

I hope you all had a great New Year party, I know I did. It was so much fun. And now I am ready to conquer the year 2014. For the beginning I made a vision board. If you don't know what that is, let me illuminate you. At the first it is a white board on which you put pictures and quotes and all that stuff that motivates you. So when you look at it, you know what you want and you go out and get it. It is all about focus my dears. This year I have decided to step up my game with the blog writing so on this blog you should expect 2 posts a month and on the other, the new one:keep it classy, I will post everyday.

So why have I decided to start a new blog. Simply because I am divided in two parts. The good and the bad, the dark and the light, the Yin and the Yang. This blog is more inspirational and motivational an the other one is just my everyday thoughts and activities. I know I am torn in two parts, but I have found that to be a good thing. One part wants me to live in a big city and have a killer job, and the other one wants me to live on the country side and have a farm and just chill. So which one do you chose? Well I settled for both of them, because together they complete who I am, and each part brings something else to the table. Sometimes one is dominant and then the other one is. Just like that. But if you learn to control them you achieve balance, you achieve happiness. I think that makes sense. If you ask yourself, what defines you? What makes you, you? ( That will be the topic of the next blog probably so lets not get into to deep here ok).

So the Yin and the Yang. It comes from Chinese culture, which I simply adore. They have it all figured out. I wish to travel there someday. And I will, I am sure of it. But back to the balance. What we see here, is that there is not only black or white, but they are both intertwined, there is always some good in the bad and some bad in the good. Just like we are. We are both good and bad. We are defined with our acts and our words. There is this on going battle, some people say it is our actions that define us, some say it is our words that have the most power. Well darlings, it is both. It is what we do and what we say that puts us in the balance and makes us who we are.

I know I have already written a post about the darkness inside od us, but this one talks about accepting the both and finding your balance and your place in the world. Like in this song from Mulan 2 the movie. One alone is not enough, you need both together!

So this year is about finding that balance between both sides of us. And please dont tell me that you always know what you want, we are all humans, we are ruled by our heart and by our mind, and sometimes we need to chose between those forces, but it is better to find the balance! So go out into the world and find the balance between the things that tear you apart. Be both, be the Yin and Yang. It is doable, I promise you.

“Accept your dark side, understanding it will help you to move with the light. Knowing both sides of our souls, helps us all to move forward in life and to understand that, perfection doesn't exist.” 

Yin and Yang
