Happy Earth Day, Australia!

21 Apr , 2017  

Earth Day

I have always tried to live an environmentally conscious life and every year I do something special to celebrate Earth Day. Whether I take part in an organised event in Melbourne, go on a hike with friends or finish a long due design project at home by reusing some old materials, I just make sure that I mark the day in my own way.
Well, this year, it is my first Earth Day as a mum. And I feel a little bit restricted to just do anything I like to show my appreciation for Nature. Moreover, with rain forecast for tomorrow and for the week ahead, my choice of options seems rather limited. So, I have decided to bring Earth Day at home by drafting a list of the small things I could do to contribute to our environment.

Feel free to follow in my footsteps, you pretty Eco-minded mums!

Clean Away in a Safe Way, while You are Expecting

Spring is on its way and I just can’t wait… But I am not looking forward to the spring cleaning.

Blossoming trees, the fresh smell in the air and everything coming to life.

(We are lucky with our mild Australian winters, but the rain, high humidity and frequent storms truly get to me sometimes.)

With this letter like post, I decided to share my good news with you all, about the new addition that spring will bring into our family. My hubby and I can’t wait to meet our baby boy in October. We are just so excited, I can’t tell you enough!

My New Year’s Resolutions

5 Jan , 2015  

New Year Resolutions

It is that time of the year again when everyone gets all crazed about Christmas, BBQs and garden parties. Christmas is all behind me, but now is the time for the most important part of all. Drawing the line and calling it a year. How did I do? I didn’t read the 37 books I set up as a goal and I am still fighting off a few pounds of extra weight I carry from last year, but over all: “How did I do?” More…

Global Family Day

1 Jan , 2014  

On the 1st of January the world marks the Global Family Day, or as also known One Day of Peace and Sharing. I decided to write about this day, because having a family is hard work you need to do everyday and I have a lot to share for the 1 1/2 years that I have been married. I also chose to write about this day because it coincides with the first day of the new year and I hope a lot of you will do some evaluation.  More…
