Traveling with allergies


One of the inconveniences of being allergic to many things is the handicap of traveling safely. If you suffer from food allergies or you are traveling with someone who is allergic you would have to plan ahead!

I wish I could go somewhere without thinking and planning, unfortunately it is not going to happen, so here are the precautions that I take in order to be safe. Continue reading “Traveling with allergies”


Tips for those who (like me) want to leave retail

Retail is hard. It doesn’t understand social life or weekends. Sometimes it can be rewarding but most of the time is rather ungrateful. I have worked in retail for some years now and even when I don’t hate it, I feel like it is not for me. I would like to do something else but….

It is difficult finding something else if you only have experience in retail!

So I have spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out how to break the loop.

Good Things



We are all star-dust. You are a rock!

Good things have happened all this time that I have been absent. Let me tell you about them.

Allergies Part 2


In my previous post, I got to tell you more or less the beginning of my life as a person with allergies.

I am aware that the fact that I have allergies does not define me as a person but it certainly defines many aspects of my life.

Unfortunately for me, my allergies got worse and worse over the years. I’m allergic to the LTP protein found in almost all vegetables and fruits.

It is not a protein that can be broken down with heat or cold or mechanically. So basically, if I cook them, I’m still allergic to them. If I chop them, nothing happens, and the same if I freeze them.

The question that everybody asks now is: what do you eat? Continue reading “Allergies Part 2”

Starting a project: Basic Scrapbook supplies


Probably, like many of you, I really like taking photos, tons of them, and then going through them and remembering the experiences that we lived at that moment.

Now I’m even considering to get a new camera so I can play more with visuals and ideas but today’s post is not about that.

I’m about to start my own scrapbook and it took me years to finally sit down and print all the photos I want! I managed to just print 400 pictures of the last 4 years. I realized the colossal magnitude of this project and it doesn’t make it easier.

2015 is here!

Happy New Year!! 

At this time of the year we all start thinking about resolutions and things we want to achieve and change. It makes sense as we are starting something, it’s new, it’s fresh, it’s “blank” and ready for us to do whatever we want with it, change and create a new person/habit/style.

It’s the biggest next Monday I start/quit day of the year. Continue reading “2015 is here!”

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, just the best for all!


I have allergies.
This is a very common statement nowadays but the fact that it is common doesn’t make it better or easier to live with. 150 million people in Europe alone and counting..

Warning: In this post I will talk about my personal experience as somebody with many allergies. It is a complicated topic that can affect you physically but also psychologically and,in my opinion, there is not enough awareness in society about it.
Even when I have read about allergies a lot, I am by no means an expert. It is hard to come by with any “manual” and the lack of information, doctor’s preparation and cure makes everything very confusing some times. Continue reading “Allergies”

I was thinking about resuming this post in only two words: Thank You, but I guessed that a little bit more content could be appreciated. So, if you are reading this, Thank you.

If you are not reading this Thank you as well, I will tell you in person (or via Internet) soon.

I have plenty of things to be thankful for and that I tend to forget while I complaint about life. This may sound like a new year’s resolution but I am truly going to try to be more aware of how lucky am I.

Not only because there is people who is much less fortunate, because there is more fortunate people.

Not only for all the material things that we have, that are a lot, even when I could fit them in a couple of suitcases now.

I have to be thankful because I have people who love me.

I have a whole lot of people who love me.

And have faith in me.

And think about me.

And worry about me.

And there’s nothing better in life than love.

And I will like to share that with you today. And I will share it in generous amounts with the confidence that I will not run out of it.

Enjoy the day!
