How Homophobic Are You?

Hello everyone :)
Today I went out to see the movie "I'm so excited" but I don't feel like talking about the film.
I'm actually really puzzled with one thing that happened during the screening.
During the movie the viewers watched many scenes of sexual intercourse between men and women but when   the film showed a kiss between two men the audience screamed with terror.
At first I thought "wtf happened,did I missed something??" and then I realised that the public was discontent because of this kiss.
My brain wants to explode when I think of  how much homophobic our society is..
I mean it's 2013..people should get over with this phobia already!
How it's even possible to be shocked with one kiss when the scene before that was two people humping each other(of course a man and a woman)
And I won't even start with the fact that the movie degraded gay people and used all these cliche ideas about homosexuality.
I feel disgusted when writers don't have original ideas that are funny and clever and they try to reuse the classic pattern of degrading certain groups of people.
So do you feel that society accepts that we can't be all the same?

Draw Eyebrows Tutorial

Hello everyone :)
Today I'm gonna show you how I do my eyebrows..
If you haven't noticed I almost have no eyebrows and I don't even pluck them..
When I was younger it was extremely difficult to figure out what to do with my eyebrows, it took many years to realise that I shouldn't pluck them at all because the outcome was quite scary

Here you can see my eyebrows with no makeup.
First of all I take a dark brown pencil and I draw a line on the top edge of my brow.
(you can make it as curvy or pointy as you want)
then I draw another line on the bottom following the shape of my brow
and then I take my brush and I try to merge them, try to make them look as natural as possible.
Here is the final result.. 
Hope you all have a nice weekend :)

Kitten News+ Video

Hello everyone!
Today is a post about Ella the kitten.
This photos were taken a few days before we neutralised her :(

Poor kitten, she was hurting so much after the surgery , it really broke my heart. 
But today 5 days after she is almost as her old self.
Biting everyone and running around, I missed this cat.


 Well ok, i'm not going to lie, I kinda liked her just sleeping all day and enjoying hugs and love..
She is really small though! I cannot believe this cat is 6 moths old and she already had her first heat. Making our lives hell. She just sat still making weird noises and she wouldn't react to anything you did to her. Which was kinda funny as well!

But all is over now, and she will forever remain a cute kitten!
And here's the video of her being trapped at the shopping bag!

On another note, I was searching online for the best food you could feed your cat. I found out that many people believe that a raw diet is best for cats of all ages! I have never considered this before so I've got to ask:
Is you pet on a raw diet? Would you consider it?
Any tips on this subject would be greatly appreciated!

Cute Cat Overload

Hello everyone :)
Today's post is one of my favorite subjects.
Cats!
These days the weather was awesome so I went I little trip to Kineta and of course I played with all the cats.
I naturally love all cats but I feel that this cat is so special..
She is so friendly and really likes to be surrounded by people.
Those eyes are killing me..
She stood there for many hours waiting for petting!
Of course other cats were there too but they weren't as friendly..

haha this is the weirdest cat ever!
Look at those short legs..

Hope you all have a nice weekend!

Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe

Today we'll be making sweet and sour chicken. A really tasty and easy recipe and a very popular asian recipe. The only downside is that it actually takes more than an hour to make so plan ahead!

Ingredients
3 chicken fillets
Cornstach
2-3 eggs
Olive oil (or any oil of your preference)
1 cup of white sugar
1 cup of Ketchup
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
Pepper
Some Sesame Seeds
1 cup Vinegar (white or apple)



Recipe
Step 1
Cut the chicken in small pieces and cover them with the Cornstach.
Step 2
Cover the chicken with the beaten eggs
Step 3
Fry the chicken in a pan until brown. Not too much though, you don't want to cook it all the way through.

Step 4
Spread the chicken pieces out in a pan and cover them with half the sauce.  
For the sauce mix together the vinegar, the sugar, the ketcup, the soy sauce, the garlic powder and pepper.
Turn the chicken around to make sure they are covered at the bottom
Step 5 
You should turn the chicken every 15 min and bake them for a whole 1 hour.
This means you will have to turn the chicken 3 times.
Step 6 
Reduce th sauce, Shimmer the sauce in high temperature until it is 1/3 in size.

You can now stir fry some vegetables, make some noodles and enjoy your new dish :)

Good luck and Enjoy!
Good luck and Enjoy!

Misogyny on International Women's Day

Hello everyone.
Lately I've been noticing more and more people who have weird thoughts about how society should be..
As you may know I'm currently doing an internship as a journalist and I have met lots of people, sadly most of them are either clearly misogynists either they secretly hate women without daring to say how they feel.
All started on the international women's day.
I had to ask some women to tell me their thoughts about equality, during the interviews the cameraman was extremely rude with everyone and at one moment he said that "women are inhibited thus they deserve to get beat" 
I was so socked with this behaviour that my hands began to shake. I wished I could threw the microphone on his head (I didn't)

I grew up learning that men and women are equal but now I have to face sexist comments everyday which are reaching the limits of sexual harassment.
I'm not over dramatic here. The patriarchy taught us that women are not equal, that even when they work with dignity they have to deal the notion that they are not good enough .
This working environment is toxic for me and I'm not sure I can handle it any longer..
I'm a person, I'm not an object and I deserve to get the same respect as a man does..
