      Thank you!! Isn’t it so cute? My mom bought it for me a while back when I first went abroad and it’s so fun to scrapbook tickets and memories in it. xo

  1. Congratulations on graduating college! Like you, I’ve also switched over to being reductarian, especially when in France: unless I’m traveling and discovering the place’s cuisine, I usually don’t eat meat in my flat, getting my protein from eggs and beans. So exciting that you’re heading back to Europe this summer! Spain’s lovely, and I love Barcelona. I’ve heard that Valencia’s great, too. I was in the Andalusia region last December, and it’s gorgeous- should you have time to visit (solo or tour), I highly recommend it! Enjoy your newfound freedom of being a graduate. 🙂

      Thank you!! I think people don’t realize that switching some days from meat to other proteins isn’t impossible and there’s a happy middle ground with it. And I’ll definitely have to check out the Andalusia region 🙂 Always love getting travel suggestions from people in the region. So excited, it’ll be my first time in Spain!

  2. Interesting to learn that you’re an ESTJ. I’ve been reading into the Myers-Briggs types and the make a lot of sense to me! I’m INFJ so we just have the “J” in common. 😛
    The idea of Project Beauty Share is AMAZING! I’d love to find something like that locally. Most places do not accept opened items – most of what I have are opened but very gently used.
    We have a “no-meat” day in our household once a week to lower our environmental footprint. I don’t like meat very much to begin with, so this is A-OK with me!
    I’m so jealous of your upcoming trip to Barcelona – I haven’t been to Spain but I’d love to go.

      Haha the Myers Briggs personality tests are so interesting. Yay for having the J- in common. I think the personality profiles of ESTJ are pretty accurate for me, although I’m definitely more spontaneous and creative than the profile makes it sound ahah. You could always call a local women’s shelter and see their policies on it if you sanitize the make up before perhaps? I know, I love the Project Beauty Share idea cause I had an eyeshadow palette I only swatched but never wore since the colors just weren’t flattering on me so it’s nice to know another woman can use it. That’s a great idea about the no-meat day! It really is amazing the impact of meat on the environment 😮

      Right?! Galway Girl is one of my favorites.. but you’re right the whole album is so good! I was totally blown away when I first listened to it on Spotify a couple months ago haha

  3. So many exciting things happening for you!! Enjoy your Europe trip, Barcelona is such an amazing place to visit and the perfect trip to take post-college! I’ve been cutting down on meat also. It really isn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be to swap meat out for other sources of protein. Way to go!

      You’re welcome! It’s definitely a great way to pass along products to people in need as opposed to throwing them away

      You’re very welcome, I’m always excited to spread the word for a good cause 🙂 I learned of it only recently too and when I do my next declutter, I know exactly where I’ll ship more stuff!
