Now, I am often in two minds about aquariums 🐠 Some I have been to are incredible, others I have been to have been awful and I’ve been upset for the fish. The one I went to today (@vanaqua) was one of the best I have seen. It’s not huge but the displays are very informative and the aquarium does a huge amount of research into helping marine life, many of the species you see have been rescued and are either rehabilitated to go back into the wild, or if they are too poorly to go back into the sea, they are kept at the aquarium to be looked after.
My favourite part were the sea otters. Oh my goodness. I have never seen one in real life and I have been obsessed with these creatures for years (ever since that video of two otters holding hands went viral), there were four and they had all been rescued, they are now being prepped to go back out into the wild 🌊
My second favourite were the penguins. Did you know 90% of African Penguins have been wiped out since the start of the 20th century? 🐧 They are such funny creatures, I’d love to go to Cape Town and see them on Boulders Beach.
Lastly, there was Helen the dolphin. Sadly Helen was caught up in fishing nets in the sea, she was hurt very badly and had to have her fins amputated, she is deemed too ill to be set free back into the wild as she cannot protect herself or effectively hunt for food, so it’s likely she would starve to death after a short while. She was pretty chuffed with ample of fish being fed to her by her handlers 🐬
This is not a paid for or sponsored post for @vanaqua but I would highly recommend checking out their Instagram so you can see the amazing work they are doing in helping the sealife around Vancouver and the western coast of Canada. Plus you will have cute sea otter photos come up on your feed, what could beat that?
PS I meant to say earlier, we saw a sea otter in the wild today when we were walking the sea wall! 😍❤️🇨🇦

It’s been a while to update the feedhere 🙈 for the past weeks, I’ve been working on @nomadmemos with a group of talent people. It’s a new digital community focusing on fashion finds, beauty goods and lifestyle inspirations. Make sure to check @nomadmemos out because it’s good for you (I promise) 👍✨
So I have mentioned it in passing but I’ve never been direct about this or my relationship. Here’s why:
As women we set an unrealistic expectation to each other about fairytale endings, prince charmings and the undying quest to find love. To trans women, this flame isn’t a flame but rather the sun. This is problematic. Relationship culture in the trans communities is an unrealistic president, not because we are unworthy or undeserving of love, rather that we are in a process of self actualization. Many are quick to judge saying that that journey is in of itself transition is separate and unique. Which is fine, but it’s very wrong. You are growing and changing physically (as well as mentally) at a rapid pace, that most often, every turn in transition becomes a nuance to the enlightenment of oneself.
Non-trans folk aren’t really afforded this opportunity in life so blatantly. We watch [email protected]@and fail at relationships while rolling our eyes because the wholeness within them selves on that path is so often discounted and forgotten.
Let’s move on by saying there are exceptions to every rule and that nothing is ever not within our grasps.
Truly look at the lessons to be learned.
Well two years ago I met that guy,
At first when we met 😍😍😍 my world... the way he looked at me with that face I couldn’t help but feel the love from the stranger. The more I got to know him the better I knew I had to become for myself. I knew I was worthy of having him in my life. The more we got to know each other, the more our lives together made sense! Food, humanitarian work, art, @greenandmustard , Hell even the colour mustard 😭 I’ve never been so enamoured. However at every turn there were road blocks... and hell a sh¡t ton of turbulence.
The fact was and is that we were still working on ourselves. For him it was jealousy and resolving the inner abuse collected over his past relationship (should I even admit, marriage).
I have struggled to find my voice. To loose the fear from years of abuse from the outside world. The problem with being such an intersectional person is that the world truly does not know how to treat or respond to you. More-over Vancouver’s
