If you look for "tienda ecologica sevilla" in google, you'll find organic shops around. But also, look for the herboristeria, lots of them have organic and local fruits and veggies. In both, ask for boxes, discount (descuento) it;s very common here, don't hesitate.
I've never been to Sevilla... So I'm sorry I cannot be more helpful...
Awww, thanks. My new hair is definitely growing on me a little more each day. Sounds silly, but just letting it be is one of the most liberating things I have done in a long while.
Facebook...lol. Well, that's a bit of a ridiculous story actually. I was on Facebook, but no, I am not currently on Facebook. It's always funny when I tell people this, because I'm pretty sure that I (and maybe my great grandmother) are the only people on this planet not on Facebook, but nevertheless, its true. I'll have to tell you about that sometime, but its a little hard to explain it all in a comment on your page :)
I just saw Taylor recently too! He has been having a bunch of people over to his parents' place in Vero Beach this past week, including Jourdan, Christine, Sam, Jack, and a few others...I actually came at the tail end of it, on Friday. Sam and Jack were still there when I got there, but they left after a couple of hours, and it was just Taylor and I for the rest of the day.
As for the old boyfriend, well, things got a little out of hand there. But it's okay now. We have now very firmly established that we are nothing more than friends. And it feels much better this way.
And YES, come see me this fall! Or I'll come see you or something. We have been putting this off WAY too long. And I am seriously going to need to PM or e-mail you or something very soon. I've got news, girly :)
Oh, by the way, one of the best things about this summer is that I have stopped straightening my hair...bet you didn't even know I straightened it lol. Most people don't, but I've been doing it most days since I was 13. It used to be so unmanageable when I was younger, though its much better now that I have made several changes (diet, shower filter, less frequent washing, NO brushing, lol). I felt sort of self-conscious at first, especially because I have done some damage to it, but its already grown on me. And its so liberating to just wake up in the morning and just let it be what it is.
Yeah, that song seems to be the favorite among everyone who comments on the songs on my page, that one and Forest City. I know Taylor said something about it, and the last time I checked, it was on his page as well lol.
My summer has actually been pretty nice. The internship...well, I decided it really wasn't for me...actually, truth is, I couldn't find out enough about it to even determine if it would be something I'd be interested in. I contacted several people about it, and either I got no response or just some generic useless response that they obviously sent out to like fifty other people. Finally, one day, in the middle of finals week, I get an e-mail saying that they received my resume and that if I am still interested, I should answer the following questions using the attached site layout. The work and time required to complete all the necessary calculations was quite extensive, and I just didn't have time for it (received the e-mail on a Friday and they wanted the work by Monday morning!). It didn't seem worth it anyway, given that its apparently impossible to find out what you are getting yourself into ahead of time with these things! So I'm just as happy to be at home, chilling and making some money in a relaxed, stress-free atmosphere. Like you said, everything works out for the best. Plus, I ran into an old friend recently (old boyfriend, to be more specific) and we're hanging out again...I don't know what the heck we're doing truth be told, but I think we're both having fun, so that's all that really matters lol.
Cali sounds beautiful. I am so glad you're happy there. For me, the question of whether or not I'll be doing any traveling is still sort of up in the air...money is a bit tight, but now that I am able to work regularly and for greater lengths of time, its not out of the question.
Lol, I love that combo myself. I was addicted to tomatoes for a long time, but am slowly trying to lay off of them. I still eat them now, but a lot less in the past 2 weeks. I am just starting to experiment with different combinations so I'll let you know when I hit something good. ;)
Yes, I think a large part of the problem lies with me. I didn't always live this lifestyle correctly and I've been through a few rough patches, but now that I know what I am doing, now that I am in the flow of things, it's obvious that I'm on to something, if that makes any sense. My family can see that. I love my sister, really I do, but I don't see her often enough for her to really understand the ways in which things have changed. I hope that one day that will no longer be the case.
I am truly so boring with my food these days! I think a large part of the problem is that I have stopped eating tomatoes (they seem to cause the old back pain to flare up- may not be the case anymore, but I'm afraid to test it out), and all of my "recipes" used to include them. I know this isn't really an insurmountable problem, but I haven't yet made much of an attempt to expand my horizons. Will have to get on that!
So I guess you're in Cali by now, lucky girl! How is it?!? How was your trip? By the way, sorry it took me forever to finally respond...life's been kind of hectic for the past couple weeks...finals week and all, you know how it goes =/
That's pretty awesome that you were modeling here in NY! Do you still model?
I've been talking to Sam Spaiser. He's such a great guy. He mentioned your name because he was talking about how he's moving and who he will be ordering in bulk with. I was like, I think I know her! lol
Hopefully I can visit you guys in Florida one day. I love it there so much
Yes, my sister is older, significantly older in fact. She is actually 34 years old, and she worries about me the same way that my parents used to, only she is much more overbearing and direct about it. This places a bit of tension on our relationship, as I think I have proven by now that this lifestyle is not going to kill me! Notice, by the way, how I said "used to" in regard to my parents. Things are really much better on that front. I think that the way I was able to heal so effectively and efficiently contributed to their backing off a bit in the end (though initially it was the old you-are-never-going-to-get-better-with-so-little-protein argument). And I feel so happy all the time these days. Its hard to argue with that =)
I don't have skype, but I'm starting to think that it's something I really need to look into, seeing as how you are probably the seventh person to ask me that question in the past month lol.
OMG, your new food pics are so beautiful! I especially love the happy face dinner =D You are quite the creative one, Miss Ally.
