Sometimes I worry that minimalism makes a home too stark and unwelcoming. Then I remember that decorating with nature is my favourite thing and is way more beautiful than man made trinkets. A jug of flowers, a plant or a bowl of fruit or veg just gives that dash of colour and texture needed to bring a room together. Plus it's generally cheap, biodegradable and can be changed around easily!

My skin has been very sensitive ever since pregnancy so I don't use a lot of exfoliating products but I fancied one in the bath the other day and mixed this sugar scrub together in less than a minute. I didn't have to visit a shop or spend extra money or buy something in a plastic tub. All natural ingredients and it's gentle and richly moisturising leaving skin so soft. I've said it before and I'll say it again, my favourite part of this toxin free journey has been discovering how easy it is to DIY simple but effective household products, from cleaning to body care. The marketers want us to believe that we need a different product for every single job, all of which are complexly made in a lab but it's simply not true. Approximate recipe (I just chucked it all in) - 1/2 cup of caster sugar - 1/4 cup of sweet almond oil (or until you have a good paste) - 8 drops of your favourite essential oils (I used 4 of lemon for its cleansing properties and 4 of lavender as it's relaxing and great for skin) Massage into skin and wash off with water.

I’m trying to keep the summer vibe going when we are hurtling towards September at the rate of knots, which sometimes gets me in a bit of a tizz. I’ve written a blog today about how I’m keeping the holiday moments present with the help of @lymebayholidays who have kindly gifted me the most beautiful basket of goodness. It has helped evoke holiday memories in my own home, given me the time to relax and be present in the now to enjoy these precious lazy days of August. I hear that the weather is going to be kind to us this weekend too, hooray! Time to make more sunshine memories of salty kissed skin, fish & chips alfresco and evenings outside by candlelight. All stored up in the memory bank for those Autumnal days to come. How do you keep holiday moments going in your home, I’d love to know and honestly can one have too many baskets? . . #indooroutdoor #relaxedliving #peacefulcorners #inspiredbynature_ #naturally_imperfect #seekinspirecreate #creativelifehappylife #rusticgamestrong #whimsicalwonderfulwild #wondermore #postitfortheaesthetic #breathepausereflect #myconsideredhome #thesimpleeveryday #ofquietmoments #cornersofmyworld #mybeautifulsimplicity #slowlived #aconsideredhome #pocketsofmyhome #myhousebeautiful #myhometoinspire #slowsustainablehome #authenticliving

Plastic Sucks 👎 . It may only be August but this is a Christmas present delivery for the boys 😉💚 fyi these aren't matchy matchy 😂 they all are different or like the top 2 same top different colours 😉 I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to try and get them more ethical, eco friendly clothes for Christmas, so I did some research and ordered from a few different companies 😊 one of the companies I found was @rapanuiclothing if you go on their website, they will tell you all about themselves 💚 including the fact, the clothes are designed to be returned when it's past it's best and they will recycle it for new clothes 😍 the clothes got delivered in paper packaging, without a single speck of plastic 👌 and the clothes feel such good quality 💚 . #rapanui #rapanuiclothing #ethical #slowfashion #ecofriendly #ecowarrior #savetheplanet #waronplastic #slowsustainablehome #makeachange #everylittlehelps #zerowastejourney

In the process of preparing for Ellie to start school, I wanted to do as much as I possibly could to save money and be sustainable. So I have bought her skirts and pinafore dresses secondhand from Ebay along with some p.e shoes that are on the way. I also got this lovely book by Janet and Allan Ahlberg on ebay about starting school and look forward to reading that with her over the next couple of weeks to try and settle her nerves and prepare her a little. #buysecondhand #secondhandbooks #secondhandbacktoschool #secondhandschooluniforms #smallsustainablesteps #slowsustainablehome #ebayfind #ebaybargains #ebaybacktoschool #janetandallanahlberg #startingschool #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #sustainablebacktoschool

Summer's not over yet (I hope not anyway!) but i'm already planning next year's garden. I enjoy collecting seeds from old favourites (poppy seeds here in the pinch pots) but creating a new wildlife and wildflower-themed area means also choosing additional seeds from a sustainable source.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thankfully @geranium_home_garden has already done the hard work for me and all I have to do is choose from a selection of @gracealexanderflowers seeds available at the Bazaar. Now the difficult part is choosing what to include... How does bronze herb fennel for height, scent and structure sound, with wild carrot for the umbellifers that I love and love in a mist for colour?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pinch pots and beautifully packaged Grace Alexander seeds available from Geranium Home & Garden here at the Bazaar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _______________________________ #breathe⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #slowliving⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #simplepleasures⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #slowlived⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #slowsustainablehome⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ofquietmoments⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nothingisordinary⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #seethebeauty⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #enjoy⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #simplethingsmadebeautiful⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happy⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #smallmomentsofcalm⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #postitfortheaesthetic⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #myconsideredhome⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cornersofmyhome⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ofquietmoments⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #ofsimplethings⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #myhouseandhome⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #aconsideredhome⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #authenticliving⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #creativehappylife⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #gardendesign ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #growyourown ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wildflowergarden⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #savethebees⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wildlife⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #greenandgrowing

Happy Thursday, all; and a reminder from one of our favourite wildlife photography accounts on just why we’re all doing this: single-use plastic sucks, please look for reusable products wherever possible. Over to you Ben...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @benjhicks: “As much as I want to celebrate reaching 100k followers, I can’t help but continue focusing on the problems at hand. For every sea turtle photo I share there are countless others (nearly all) ingesting plastic every day. I myself along with all of you have to remember that we’re just getting started. Thanks to everyone for helping to bring awareness to my work and therefore this cause. I hope that all 100,000 of you are more ocean minded today than you were before following my account. #beoceanminded”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #BuyLessBuyOnce #SlowSustainableHome #SmallSustainableSteps #ZeroWaste #SmallChangeBigDifference #circulareconomy #ecofriendlyliving #ecoliving #sustainableliving #sustainability #breakfreefromplastics #reusablebottle #ecocup #plasticfree #plasticpollution #savetheplanet #reusablenotdisposable #oceanconservation #reuseorrefuse #singleusesucks #vscogirl #plasticpackaging #zerowastelife #saveourseas #zerowastetips #goingplasticfree #saynotoplastic #zerowastejourney #zerowastelifestyle

Used coffee grounds in your hair?! . I've been looking at what to do with used coffee grounds and tea leaves for a while now, I've been adding them to our little compost and then just sprinkling them round the garden, I then read about using coffee grounds in your hair, also pouring coffee on your hair (but I thought that was a waste of perfectly good coffee 😂☕🙈) there were different recipes where you mix it with other ingredients but I couldn't be bothered, so while after washing my hair I added coffee grounds, in my scalp and along the length, and gave it a good scrub as you would with shampoo, I'm not going to lie it was messy (coffee grounds everywhere 😂) but coffee grounds are also a great exfoliant so my skin on my arms felt amazing when I rubbed it off 😂👌 (there are recipes for coffee body scrubs too 😉) I rinsed my hair with clean water and then the cider vinegar rinse I made the other day, and omg my hair felt amazing afterwards 😍 it hasn't felt this good in ages 👌 . #coffee #coffeescrub #repurposed #usedcoffeegrounds #hair #longhair #naturalhaircare #plasticfreehaircare #coffeehair #ecofriendly #ecowarrior #savetheplanet #waronplastic #slowsustainablehome #makeachange #everylittlehelps #zerowastejourney

I hate wasting food (unfortunately we do still have waste in our house) but a million times less than years ago, before I started meal planning etc and making a conscious effort to try and use up things before they end up in the bin 👎 . Today was leftover light mascarpone, now I know even light mascarpone is high in calories etc, I only have 100g so I've decided to split it over 4 days and mix 25g with 75g Skyr yogurt, vanilla extract and fruit syrup (I added some food colouring just because 😂♥️👌) . Today's breakfast:- *30g Cornflakes *80g strawberries *80g cherries *Mascarpone and Skyr mix *30g goji berries *Small handful hazelnuts *1/2tbsp hemp seeds *1tsp bee pollen *Half a chopped dark chocolate raspberry @grenadeofficial bar . #loveyourleftovers #lovefoodhatewaste #mascarpone #breakfastinajar #whenbreakfastislife #healthy #healthyeating #healthydiet #healthylifestyle #healthandfitness #yum #foodporn #foodiepost #foodstagram #f52grams #vegetarian #fitover30 #ecofriendly #ecowarrior #savetheplanet #waronplastic #slowsustainablehome #makeachange #everylittlehelps #zerowastejourney

Homemade Room Spray in a plant mister 💚 . I made homemade Room Spray months ago but the spray bottle I was using was spraying too much making everything wet if you know what I mean? Then I seen this idea on a zero waste group I'm in 💚 I bought this bottle absolutely ages ago, when I was still in the "buy anything because it's pretty even though I have no idea what I'm going to do with it phase" 😂 from Homebargains and it's just sat on my conservatory windowsill ever since until today and it does the job perfectly just sprays a fine mist 👌 and no chemical nasties and this literally is a plastic free recipe 💚 obviously it's no strong smelling Febreze but I'm happy 😊 . #roomspray #essentialoils #naturalroomspray #homemade #plantmister #ecofriendly #ecowarrior #savetheplanet #waronplastic #slowsustainablehome #makeachange #everylittlehelps #zerowastejourney

Last week during a lovely low key wet weekend in Wales we popped into St Fagan's Museum outside Cardiff. I cannot believe I haven't been before - it's a collection of historical buildings that have been collected together and rebuilt in perfect detail. I've long been a fan of this kind of museum - there's one in Nelson NZ and the Black Country museum and Avoncroft museum in the Midlands all of which I've previously enjoyed (there must be loads of others out there - do you know of more?). This kind of museum gives me my interiors fix whilst I feel like I've fulfilled my parental duty taking my kids around a museum 😁. I'll pop more in stories - there's so much inspiration to be gleaned here; I adore this simple repeat print direct onto the uneven render and limewash #historichome #museumofwelshhistory #stfagans #stfagansmuseum #fireplace #hearth #limewash #limerender #blockprinting #blockprint #interiorinspiration #interiorinspo #myvintagehome #myhomestyle #myhistorichome #elegantlyknackeredinteriors #perfectlyimperfect #wabisabi #styleitdark #slowsustainablehome #aquietstyle #authenticliving #seekthesimplicity #myconsideredhome #weatheredandwonderful #vintagelove #periodproperty

I’m off to @lostvillagefestival this weekend with @madebyemily__ so I thought I’d share with you all the little changes I’ve made to make my festival experience more eco-friendly! Starting with these jeans- an old pair from H&M which I was keeping for messy jobs, I added this amazing fabric down the sides which was from @monetroseadams stash! Then I added some iron on embroidery 🌈 🐚 🌍 bought from @depop and raided mine and my mums badge collection for some cool editions! These jeans now have a new life and will be shown off this weekend for sure!

Bubble bath 🛀.....or in this case not 😉 . We don't have a shower and haven't had one in this house for 14 years 😭 (top of the list when we eventually get a new bathroom 🙄) we always get so excited when we stop somewhere with a show 😂🙌 anyway it means baths are our only option and what I thought was a necessity up until recently "bubble bath" another item I decided to stop buying a couple of months ago, don't get me wrong I do miss the bubbles at time but it's just not needed, I scrolled through tonnes of homemade recipes and read all the reviews and basically it just didn't sound worth it, I Googled eco friendly ones and they are expensive and still come in plastic and Lush's bubble bars yes we plastic free but work out so expensive for how often we would use it, so I decided we'd go cold turkey and ditch the bubbles all together 😉 we use homemade bath bombs instead 🙌🛀👌 I also a couple of times a week add a muscle soak (just equal amounts of epsom salts and magnesium 😊) plastic free, eco friendly and nasty chemical free 🙌 . For those who don't know the little story about my bath rack 😂 a few years ago I'd been eyeing up lovely wooden ones but hate buying if there's a possibility one can be made 😉 Barry found scraps of oak lying round (not sure what they originally off) and built me this 😍 I stained it darker and varnished it with yacht varnish 😊 and still love it today ♥️ . #bubbles #nomorebubbles #bathbomb #homemade #homemadeisbest #reducereuserecyle #onemanstrashisanothermanstreasure #musclesoak #ecofriendly #ecowarrior #savetheplanet #waronplastic #slowsustainablehome #makeachange #everylittlehelps #zerowastejourney

Saturday hanging here, not going very far, popping to the farm shop then outside making the garden look pretty again after 3 weeks of being untouched. Maybe a little day dreaming on the side, don’t tell me I’m the only one who looks at ways of upping sticks and moving to where they have just been on holiday? . . #myconsideredhome #cornersofmyhome #simplethingsmadebeautiful #thesimpleeveryday #ofsimplethings #ofquietmoments #theslowcollective #cornersofmyworld #mybeautifulsimplicity #slowlived #aconsideredhome #pocketsofmyhome #mydecorvibe #myhouseandhome #myhousebeautiful #myhometoinspire #slowsustainablehome #authenticliving #cornersofmyworld #feelfreefeed #momentsofmine #cherishandrelish

🌿Homegrown herbs🌿 We're almost a month into life at our new home, and new ways of doing things are slowly settling in. Having not had any outdoor space to call my own for the last ten years, I'm thrilled to have a garden of our own. It's a little too late in the summer and the garden is a bit too much of a project to start doing much planting yet, so I was over the moon to receive these two big pots of herbs as housewarming gifts - one from my Mum and another from my best friend. They're fresh and delicious - and will help to reduce our reliance on dried herbs (and potted ones from the supermarket that I'm guilty of buying from time to time). Gifts that with a little love will keep on giving for years to come. #littlebitgreener #homegrown #growyourown #herbs #vegetables #sustainable #sustainableliving #smallsustainablesteps #slowsustainablehome #sustainableinfluencers #green2019 #simpleliving  #ecofriendly #ecoliving #lesswaste #reducewaste #zerowaste

@tea_and_wildflowers

It’ll be a great year for apples so maybe for my hashtag #appleandseason too. These are destined for an apple gin made like the hedgerow gins that are popular at Christmas. I picked just enough apples roughly two kilos or 4 pounds; I’ll slice them and remove the pips but skins and cores will give good flavour so the apple pieces just go in a bucket, are covered with brandy and weighed down with a plate. In six weeks or so I’ll have a taste and decide about adding sugar. Apple crates are appearing outside farm shops here and I know a few orchards long abandoned with old trees that are still fruiting well. People like trees are very generous if you ask nicely and thank them. Lots of recipes on the website coming up. Have a great start to the weekend, have you given your raincoat a name yet?

Along with growing giant courgettes (see my stories) I’ve managed to get a decent crop of blackcurrants this year so I take it all back that I can’t grow anything! When I was on holiday in France recently my drink of choice was a Kir Breton or Normand which is crème de cassis and cider (they add a splash of Calvados in Normandy) so keeping the holiday vibe going, these blackcurrants are going to be infused with gin. Do you come back home and try to recreate the food and drink you had on holiday? . . . #livingthegoodlife #gardengoodness #holidaycocktails #kirbreton #kirnormand #holidayvibes #growyourown #blackcurrants #blackcurrantgin #inspiredbynature #everydaymoments #theartofslowliving #livemoremagic #simplethingsmadebeautiful #beautyineverything #attentiontodetail #seekthesimplicity #simplepleasures #livethelittlethings #naturalstyle #greenliving #slowsustainablehome #naturalstyle #zerowaste #vintagestyle #dowhatyoulove #greenliving #heritageandgreen

Zero Waste Journey hair 😂 . So I swapped bottles of shampoo and conditioner for solid bars a few months ago, it's a bit of trial and error finding the right one, the first one I got was a 2 in 1 and I wasn't overly keen with the results, then I tried ones from @lush and I'm much happier, I also made a cider vinegar rinse, using a mix of 2 cups of water, 4 tablespoons of cider vinegar and essential oils, which I rinse my hair with afterwards 👌then about a month ago I decided to only wash my hair once a week, and shock horror nothing happened 😉 you don't have to use the rinse, but it acts as a clarifying rinse meaning it helps get rid of any products still left on your hair like hairspray, and seen as though I only wash once a week, I thought it'll help get rid of a weeks worth of hairspray 😂 on that note that's the next thing I'm looking in to, eco friendly hairspray 😉) I'm no expert on this but if you read up on it, it does say your hair will often go through a transition period while it gets used to not being cleaned with loads of chemicals, having all the natural oils stripped from it and not being washed as often, meaning initially it can go more oily but also sometimes dry on the ends, but then it gets used to it, and settles down, you may have to experiment in finding the right bars for you 👌 because I tie my hair up and have it in a bun 99.9% of the time I haven't even really thought about it 🙈 fyi it may work for some but I tried the whole rubbing coconut oil in my hair leaving it then washing it off and it took about 3 washes to finally get all the oil off 🙄 a new revelation to me was I'd being applying conditioner wrong my whole life 😂 apparently you should avoid your scalp and roots and that you old need to apply it from about your ears down 😱 who knew?! 😂 I also made a dry shampoo for times that I need it, as I say I'm no expert and one method might not work for some people hence the trying out different things ♥️ . #zerowastejourney #hair #longhair #ponytail #plasticfreehaircare #shampooandconditioner #shampoobar #lush #natural #ecofriendly #ecowarrior #savetheplanet #waronplastic #slowsustainablehome #makeachange #everylittlehelps

@ecobottlesandstuff

Scary eh? 😳 Micro plastics are constantly entering our bodies. According to a 2018 U.K. study, each time we sit down to eat a meal, more than 100 pieces of microplastic fall onto our plates with the rest of the dust from the air. It seems we're far more likely to ingest microplastics floating around the air than we are to ingest them from the seafood we eat. Plastic microfibers found in the dust in our homes and the air we breathe can come from car tyres, carpets and soft furnishings, as well as clothes such as fleece jackets. These are regularly shedding tiny bits of plastic into the environment as they are worn away. The average US sample of tap water contains 4.8 fibers of plastic, compared with an average of 1.9 fibers in Europe, according to research by Orb Media. Bottled water, meanwhile, has more than twice as many particles on average. The toll to human health is not completely understood yet, but some plastics contain chemicals that are believed to contribute to health problems like obesity and diabetes. We need to make some drastic changes to our daily lives. Time to wake up people. @ecobottlesandstuff #ecobottlesandstuff #BuyLessBuyOnce #SlowSustainableHome #SmallSustainableSteps #Zerowaste #ecoliving #SmallChangeBigDifference #circulareconomy #ecofriendlyliving #ecoliving #sustainableliving #sustainability #waterbottles #breakfreefromplastics #enviromentalist #reusablebottle #ecocup #plasticfree #plasticpollution #savetheplanet #lovecoffeehatecups #reusablenotdisposable #oceanconservation #coffeelovers #reuseorrefuse #singleusesucks #plasticpollutes #pointlesspackaging #plasticpackaging #wakecupandsmellthecoffee #zerowastelife

Oatly; winning again. See that number there, right there at the bottom of the carton? Yup, that tells you the carbon footprint of the product. Handy, eh? But as the side of the carton indicates, it's only helpful if everyone does it/is made to. There's a petition on change.org (I searched 'food carbon footprint' and it was top of the list) which I've signed and a few small ones on the gov.uk petitions site that really need amplified. Many of us are making changes away from hard to recycle packaging, but would seeing carbon data like this further influence your shopping and family diet? #slowsustainablehome #makeachange #bethechange #newhabits #foodcarbonfootprint #positivity

Gosh it’s been a while since I posted here! Nearly three months in fact. Truthfully, I felt like I had lost my creative spark and that I had nothing to share. Then a couple of weeks ago I picked up my camera and headed to Hebden Bridge to photograph the beautiful home of Laura @dearprudencestudio A fellow Scot, we had a brilliant time chatting about our homeland as well as cakes, interiors and creativity! I left feeling super inspired. If you’d like to see more of Laura’s home and studio then sign up for @91magazine mailing list to receive the new free ezine which comes out very soon.

This year has definitely seen a lot of changes for me, one being clothes, I would love to say I have minimised my clothes down to a capsule wardrobe, I haven't done that completely, I do still have a lot of clothes but I have made a lot of changes, early this year @small_sustainable_steps was posting various ways to minimise and declutter your home, and it was these posts that really made me think about everything not just fashion, I still have a lot of stuff but don't buy nearly a quarter of the amount of unnecessary things that I used to 🙌 did anyone watch the series on Netflix Tidying up with Marie Kondo?? She has fab tips on decluttering and it was thanks to her show I finally pulled out all the clothes from my extremely crammed wardrobe (4 and 1/2 absolutely crammed rails 😱) and literally went through everything and took piles of clothes to the charity shop 🙌 after that, and also reading more and more about the horror that is fast fashion I'm really thinking before I buy clothes, definitely not buying every time something catches my eye (even though it can be so hard at times 😂) and trying to buy more ethical clothing or Preloved 😍 . I sat listening to a lady the other day talking about going to a festival and saying she'd bought a few tops from either Asda or Primark and if they got wrecked it didn't matter as they were so cheap, she'd just bin them and buy more 😭 just Google effects of fast fashion and you will see how scary it is!! .

Water and white vinegar for cleansing and moisturising my face gets rid of another two bottles. Soap! 🧼 who remembers soap? Gets rid of a bottle of hand wash and a bottle of shower gel. And the best till last Lush Godiva shampoo and conditioner bar, which is absolutely fabulous btw, gets rid of shampoo and conditioner bottles.

I'm apparently ADD tonight. All of my bathroom hand towels seem to have gone missing. So I am taking leftover Nani Iro double gauze and blush-colored linen and basically quilting them together, edging them somehow (undecided if I want to just hem the edges or bias tape them to keep both sides clean), and having what is probably the most expensive, luxurious hand towel I have ever owned 🤣

Have you heard of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) before? ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ VOCs are a large group of chemicals that are found in many products we use to build and maintain our homes. From the furniture we sit on to the carpets and cleaning products.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Obviously, we can’t throw away ALL these items, but there are ways we can make a difference and protect ourselves from all the invisible health hazards we have trapped in our home.

🌿Sharing🌿 My colleague kindly brought a huge bag of beans and courgettes from his veg patch today. They've got more than they can eat at home, so half a dozen of us were lucky enough to come home with some homegrown goodies. There's nothing better than fresher-than-fresh, zero plastic and low food mile treats. These beauts will be going in tonight's dinner, which should now be large enough to provide leftovers for the freezer. I love stashing portions away for days when time is tight. I'm lucky to work for someone who's such a generous sharer (and a fellow vegetable enthusiast!). #littlebitgreener #homegrown #growyourown #growyourownveg #organic #vegetables #sustainable #sustainableliving #smallsustainablesteps #slowsustainablehome #sustainableinfluencers #green2019 #simpleliving  #ecofriendly #ecoliving #lesswaste #reducewaste #zerowaste

Sitting down with a hot cup of tea at the end of the day is one of life simple pleasures, wouldn't you agree?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our gorgeous glass tea infuser also contains its own stainless steel infuser for loose leaf tea😊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☕ Reusable, recyclable and double-walled⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☕ Lid is made from sustainably sourced bamboo⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☕ Made from ultra-light, heat resistant glass⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☕ Dishwasher safe⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☕ Holds 380ml of liquid⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And don’t forget that while enjoying your favourite tea from this bottle you are doing a good deed for our planet. Disposable cups are technically recyclable, however, due to the way in which they are manufactured, most of disposable cups from a coffee shop do not end up being recycled. ♻️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #BuyLessBuyOnce #SlowSustainableHome #SmallSustainableSteps #Zerowaste #ecoliving #SmallChangeBigDifference #glassteainfuser #ecofriendlyliving #ecoliving #sustainableliving #sustainability #breakfreefromplastics #enviromentalist #reusablebottle #ecocup #plasticfree #tealovers #savetheplanet #lovecoffeehatecups #reusablenotdisposable #oceanconservation #coffeelovers #reuseorrefuse #singleusesucks #plasticpollutes #pointlesspackaging #plasticpackaging #zerowastelife #teainfuser #takeawaytea

🌟TREAT YOSELF🌟⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You deserve it, friends. It’s summer, we’ve all got our feet out more often, so let’s give them a little bit of looking after!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌱 We are loving this zero waste inspired foot soak from @wandering_wild_home (who has heaps of fab tips and tricks to making your home as low impact as possible):-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌿 To help heal your dry, cracked heels and soften your feet, I created another wonderful home spa treatment: a lemon matcha foot scrub DIY. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here is what you'll need: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Jar (s) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - 1 cup Epsom Salt⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - 1/3 cup Sweet Almond oil⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - 1 TBSP Matcha powder⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - 10 drops of Lemon essential oil⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mix all of the ingredients together and put them into the jar. Voila! ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rub a small amount on your foot, especially on the heel. Rinse off the scrub, but the moisturizing benefit of the almond oil will stay on your skin. I like to do this especially in the shower to avoid any mess 🙂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Enjoy! 😘⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #BuyLessBuyOnce #SlowSustainableHome #SmallSustainableSteps #ZeroWaste #SmallChangeBigDifference #circulareconomy #ecofriendlyliving #ecoliving #sustainableliving #sustainability #breakfreefromplastics #reusablebottle #ecocup #plasticfree #plasticpollution #savetheplanet #reusablenotdisposable #oceanconservation #reuseorrefuse #singleusesucks #plasticpollutes #plasticpackaging #zerowastelife #beauty #zerowastetips #goingplasticfree #saynotoplastic #zerowastejourney #zerowastelifestyle

Who doesn’t love flowers in their home? The sad reality is most Canadians have no idea where their flowers come from. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ So, in order to avoid “factory flowers” that are not ethically grown and are sprayed with more toxic crap than you can imagine, here are 5 Canadian Florists that are making buying locally sourced blooms of beauty easier than ever:⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ 1. @humbleburdock⁠⠀ 2. @floraliamtl⁠⠀ 3. @floraloraflowers⁠⠀ 4. @torontoflowermarket⁠⠀ 5. @nightsongfarm⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Do you love having fresh flowers in your home?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #homedetox #detoxyourhome #learngreen #circularliving #slowsustainablehome⁠⠀ #smallsustainablesteps #singleusesucks #sustainablegift #toxinfreelifestyle #sustainabledecor⁠⠀ #zerowasteproducts #zerowastecanada

A little bit of #decor rearranging to start the day. I like to "shop my house" for decor pieces and move things around to create a different feeling ✨ ♥ Hope you all have a lovely day and let me know if you do this too ☺ #decor #candlelover #decoration #tidyingup #tidyhome #cleanhomehappyhome #cleanhomehappymind #housecleaning #mrshincharmy #organizar #neat #sosatisfying #simandjadeclean #entrance #ecohome #notox #springcleaning #slowsustainablehome #cleanhouse #cleanersofinstagram #naturalcleaning #cleanedbyme #organizedhome #home #homefragrance #myhome #waxmelts #waxmeltaddict
