Food, Australia & My Humble Opinion

I seem to have spent a fair bit of time focusing on the travel aspect of Without Cruelty lately and I want to get back to basics a little now and talk about the fooood.

This has been wonderful and amazing and often very emotional. I, along with my boyfriend, are currently offering our services,… Continue reading Other People’s Pets

When I was little I accidentally put my thumb through an avocado while standing in line at a supermarket.
