As you certainly know, I was born is Paris, this is where I grew up, studied, worked… I have spent almost my whole life (more…)
Today was World Lion Day and I wanted to honor Cecil.
You certainly all know Cecil by now.
Cecil was killed using an arrow and was left wounded for 40 hours before being chased down and killed with a bullet. He was then beheaded and skinned.
When I was around 9 or 10 years old, I had an appendectomy.
My mother wanted to get me a gift that I could take with me to the hospital for comfort so I told her that I wanted a lion and his cub as soft toys.
At the hospital, the surgeon came to see me before the surgery and he saw my lions. He told me that he really liked my lions, he said that they were absolutely stunning and looked just like real lions. He also said: “I can see that you love animals, this is awesome, I do too”.
He then told me that he goes on safari trips every year to take pictures. He said that lions were amazing and that it was breathtaking to see them in the wild. He encouraged me to go one day.
He was a true animal lover, he respected them.
The only way that he ever shot those animals was with a camera, and that’s how it should be.
(Those are not actual pictures of my soft toys, I don’t know where they are after all this time but they look similar)
If you want to help, sign and share all the petitions you can and share them.

And on FB :
Nadine and Ron kindly sent me two amazing products to review.
I have to tell you, I am so impressed.
I am very careful with the products I am using. First I only use products non tested on animals and the most natural as possible. Some products give me breakouts especially if they are very rich.
You will never see me shopping in the high street, I order my products online. I am not using many products just quality ones.
Let me show you the first product: Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever.
This product is absolutely amazing. It is a delight to use it, a truly magical product. It’s so versatile. Don’t be intimated by the fact that it is an oil. It doesn’t leave any greasy residue on your skin. I am completely in love with this product.
This their best seller product and I understand why. It is like heaven in a bottle.
Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever is the foundation creation for radiant skin. This body and face product is “all-in-one” for cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. Of all the Best Skin Evers, this one and Rose Best Skin Ever are the best choices for the face and can also be used on the body. Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever is the ultimate choice for brilliantly cleansing, moisturizing and toning the skin.
All Pure Organic and/or Wild crafted Ingredients: super-critical Sea buckthorn oil, golden jojoba oil, virgin coconut oil, tamanu oil, lavender, vetiver, grapefruit, and palmarosa essential oils.
I am using it more as a moisturizer but this is very personal. I use it on my hair ends too.
I have used the whole bottle Nadine and Ron have sent to me and I have just ordered a new one. After using it my skin is so smooth and soft like silk. I love the smell of it.You know when you are using it that you are doing good for your skin.And the wonderful thing is that men can use it too.
The second product i have been sent is absolutely fantastic too.
Here it is: Healthy Gum Drops.
I have shown this product to my Holistic dentist and she said that it was a great product to use.

Please don’t support Sea World or any marine park. Don’t support captivity.
Animals shouldn’t be used for entertainment. They just need to be left alone and live their live in the wild.
This is heartbreaking. Never go there.Watch Blackfish and The Cove.
Please watch this beautiful tribute to Tilikum:
The music fits so well and as Zach is saying:
“The song made me cry when I heard it…I just KNEW it fit what Tilikum might be thinking”.
I cried too.
