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!

They say home is where the heart is, so if that’s the case, shouldn’t we be putting as much investment into our personal space as we do to keep our hearts happy and healthy? Creating a home that makes you fall in love with it again and again, is one of the best ways to boost happiness in our lives. And it doesn’t need to cost a fortune either. Property upgrades, simple DIY projects and giving your space a little TLC all go a long way.

Spring Cleansing

There is no better time than spring to turn our homes inside out, to clean the dirt, grime and dust and to re-insert order in our dwellings, lives and minds. The same applies to our bodies too. Just like we take rubbish out in spring, I believe this period is great for getting rid of the toxins in our bodies as well! Surely, the heavy wintry climate has seen quite a bit of those building up in your system and now would be a great time to revise your work out routine and meal plans. Is there anything that needs a quick clean up? More…

Salmon Garlic Dill

On Saturday it was one of those days when I just woke up with the urge to do something nice for my husband and surprise him.  He went over to his parents to help them and it was then when I went grocery shopping and I planned the whole thing. He loves fish, and salmon in particular, and that’s why I decided to try an old recipe my mom used to make. Although it sounds fancy – it is very easy, don’t worry! More…

Four Amazing Homemade Beauty Products

1 Aug , 2013  

DIY Beauty Products

For quite some time I was thinking about all the horrible things large beauty industries put in our cosmetics and I was frankly put off the idea of paying for these. In addition, very often the products we buy from supermarkets are tested on animals and don’t get me started on how I loathe animal testing. Here is another fun fact for you, the majority of products contain parabens, which are found in a large percentage of the breast cancer tissue. Now, why on earth would I want that?

25 Jul , 2013  

Working and crafting with your hands

When we were kids all of us wanted rewarding heroic jobs like being a doctor, police officer, fireman, singer and others, is that right? Actually this is the right approach to any career according to research, as it turns out that people who are crafty, talented and skilful show higher job satisfaction.
