During the hot and dry summer of 2015 my balcony garden had ample time to thrive and throw off fruit. While last year I couldn’t wait to get going and planted the first seeds as soon as February, I was

A product so nice I’m using it twice. Twice as long as originally anticipated to be exact. Only, strictly speaking it’s not the same but two very similar products. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: 14 more days with Dr. Bronner
Now that my two weeks of experimenting with a bar of Dr. Bronner’s neutral pure-castile soap are over, which claims one can use it for 18 different purposes, I am quite satisfied with the results.

Until just recently. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Gasthaus Zum Wohl *sponsored*
Yep, Colombia. South America.
That particular friend of mine who so far has been the reason for my biennial visits to Chicago has now decided to get married.
In Colombia. Continue reading Alicioustravels: Colombia
While 2015 was gone quicker than I did appreciate it, for 2016 I’m striving to not let life overtake me again. Seriously, what happened last year?! All of a sudden it was Christmas while I still hadn’t processed the end of summer.
