Can’t get enough of this!! Cheers 🥂 to a happy sunshiney weekend! 💗 . . “And if you can try your best to remember that bad thoughts about yourself don’t just stop coming when you’ve reached a size, destination, status or wealth. But we can improve on our recovery time from negative thinking when we empower ourselves with truths, understanding, awareness and a whole lot of self grace.” - @thebirdspapaya (repost) . . 📷 @quotesbychristie

@plasticfreehk #regram . Thanks @plantedinthewoods for sharing all of your sustainable living tips, and with such beautiful pictures. 😍⁠ ⁠ Ever wondered how you could lessen the food waste in your home? Keep reading!⁠ ⁠ ---⁠ "Prevent food waste with proper food storage!⁠ .⁠ I’ll admit, in the past I was horrible about food waste. It makes me cringe when I think about how many things I threw out because they weren’t properly stored. Over the past few year, I’ve tried by best to learn proper food storage and it’s made a huge difference. Here are some of the tips and tricks I use to keep things fresh and out of the landfill!⁠ .⁠ •Store herbs in water⁠ •Store dry food in air-right containers⁠ •Freeze sauces in jars⁠ •Keep tree nuts in the fridge or freeze them⁠ •Store celery and carrots in water⁠ •Freeze food scraps in a bag to save for homemade veggie broth⁠ •Freeze leftover plant milks into ice cubes for smoothies⁠ •Store root veggies in natural fibers in a cool pantry⁠ •Store fresh garden root veggies in boxes in slightly damp sand⁠ •Freeze leftover herbs in olive oil⁠ •Wash berries in a vinegar rinse before storing⁠ •Keep stone fruit and tomatoes at room temperature⁠ •Store asparagus standing in a jar in a few inches of water⁠ •Store mushrooms in brown bags⁠ •Store lettuce in a sealed bag or container⁠ •Never store potatoes and onions together⁠ •Freeze bread in a bread bag or use a bread box⁠ •Peel, chop, and freeze bananas that are going brown⁠ •Store avocado with the pit or a piece of onion to prevent browning⁠ •Freeze leftover tomato paste into cubes⁠ •Use @abeego food wraps (or any wax wrap) and bowl covers⁠ •Use silicone bags or reuse your old plastic bags. They work great for freezing and take up less space(remember, reuse those plastic bags until they are literally falling apart!)⁠ •COMPOST!! (It’s incredibly easy)⁠ .⁠ Let’s combat food waste together! What are your favorite ways to keep food fresh and out of the landfills?? "⁠ ⁠ ( 📷 @plantedinthewoods )⁠ ⁠

OMG 😭😭😭😭😭 I want to thank everyone for all the love you showed for the the shop update yesterday! I'm blown away and truely touched. As with most new beginnings, there were a few bumps. SHIPPING was being calculated at an extraordinary rate and taxes were not being charged. All of wich has been FIXED. Refunds will be issued to anyone who was overcharged. For those who should have paid tax, consider it a little thank you from us 💜😎 There is yarn left for you to grab (including some SPITE, cos we made extra) but its going fast. Please message us if you run into any problem with the shop. 📸 @knitbrooks . . . . #feistyfibres #handdyedyarn #indiedyedyarn #yarn #yarnlover #alltheyarn #iloveyarn #knitter #yarndyersofinstagram #canadianyarndyer #indiedyer #indieyarndyer #skeinsonskeins #yarnporn #yarnstash #yarnhaul #yarnies #crocheter #slowliving #yarnloversofinstagram #creativevibes #fibrearts #makersgonnamake #knittersgonnaknit #onlineshop #technicalissuesfixed #knitfastdiewarm

It’s amazing how just one night away can do you the world of good. I went down to Margaret River with @lisalisagrace and @jess.emurray this week and it was wonderful. There’s something so special about being down south - we’re so lucky to live in WA, it is absolutely beautiful here. Where are your favourite close-to-home getaways? 🌤

One Grey Elephant Balancing Some musical fun on our Saturday morning 🐘 Do you know this fun elephant song? It’s such a fantastic song to sing and I love how easy it is to act out through play and also incorporates early numeracy concepts 🙌 One grey elephant balancing, Step by step on a piece of string, He thought is was such a wonderful stunt, That he called for another, Elephant! (The song continues – 2, 3, 4 grey elephants balance on one piece of string, until…) 5 grey elephants balancing, Step by step on a piece of string, All of a sudden the piece of string broke, And down came all the elephant folk!

Let’s do this! Picked up a yoghurt maker for $2 at the op-shop a while back, and have been wanting to give it a go. Milk marked down to less than half price seemed like a good enough reason! Yes, it’s ‘past it’s best’ date by a couple of days, but it is absolutely fine to use. Milk can last up to a week longer than the printed dates suggest - just give it a sniff and use your best judgement. We’ll warm the milk, add a dollop of pot-set yoghurt as the starter (apparently you can also use a dash of sauerkraut or pickle brine to kickstart the lactobacillus good guys), then keep it warm in the thermos pot overnight and see what happens! We bought this mini tub of pot-set yoghurt to get us started this time, but once we’ve attained our first good batch, we can just use a dollop of that to start the next batch, and so on and so forth. We’ll reuse this plastic pot either in the freezer or in the garden 😊 Most recipes advise using full cream milk, but you know us: happy to give things a shot if it’s diverting food from landfill, even if it doesn’t work out every time. It’s all in the name of learning and moving towards more sustainable options. 💚 Permaculture Principle 9: Use small and slow solutions #rentalpermaculture #permaculture #homemadeyoghurt #yoghurt #smallandslowsolutions #slowliving #slowfood #slowfoodmovement #reducewaste #towardszerowaste #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastekitchen #traditionalskills #nannaskills #theurbannanna #urbannanna #traditionalmethodsmademodern

Ein K U S C H E L I G E S Wochenende wünsche ich euch! Für uns ist es das letzte vor dem 1. Advent welches wir in vollen Zügen genießen können, ohne die Zeit im Nacken zu haben. Beziehungsweise Termine. Und wir sagen uns ja jedes Jahr - nächstes Jahr stresse ich mich nicht mehr so! Und schwupps - sind wir wieder mitten drin. Wer kennst 😃??? Denn danach geht es ja los, mit Weihnachtsfeiern, Einladungen, viel zu viel gutem Essen Es fehlt noch das ein oder andere Geschenk, das Haus will auch nochmal auf Vordermann gebracht werden. Der Tannenbaum 🌲 fehlt noch... Die Plätzchen sind alle vertilgt, also nochmal ran und neue backen. Warum tun wir das? Weil wir es perfekt haben wollen. Warum??? Weihnachten ist nächstes Jahr wieder! Vielleicht dann perfekt 🤷🏻‍♀️ Eins merke ich, das ich von Jahr zu Jahr gelassener werde, auch was die Deko betrifft! Jeder nach seinem Gusto - und in diesem Sinne... Viel Spaß beim dekorieren, basteln, verpacken und backen. Weihnachten 2019 ich freue mich auf dich!!! #anderzeit#adventszeit #weihnachtszeit#vorbereitung #happyday#skandinavianstyle #wohnideen#wohnkonfetti #stillezeit#kerzen#wohnen #zeigthereurewohnung #zusammensein#slowliving #solebich@raumzauber #interior4you1#inspiration #interior_design#myhomestyle4you#interior123

— 365 days came and went, and I’m 27 now 🌹 all my wildest dreams + more came true this year, including getting to eat authentic italian pizza in style, move into our own version of a romantic parisian apartment in the heart of dc, & capture memories in the form of photographs for the best people. Feeling a little overwhelmed but mostly a lot of happy. So, excuse me now while I have my pizza & eat it too! 😚🍕

Because sometimes the most productive thing to do is to not do anything. 😌💕

Friday affirmation: I am more than my productivity. I deserve rest 💤 After an insanely productive day yesterday (have you peeped my free meditation yet?! #linkinbio) today I slept in, and binged watched Rhythm and Flow (late to the party but like, woah). This weekend? More or less, more of that. Also, including a nourishing bath tomorrow in my “to-do” list, and many forward folds in whatever my yoga practice looks like. Opening up the kidneys so I can recharge, ya know? Rest as an act of resistance has been my jam lately. In a world where we’re hyper aware of the social, and political climate I think it’s important to rest. Not only so we can come back stronger, but also because it feels good. + you deserve to feel good!! Happy weekend, I hope you’re creating space to take things slowww 💛
