Only two more days of my twelve day project! For our second last sustainable Christmas conversation, I want to talk traditions. 🎅 Do you guys have any Christmas traditions? Anything you and your fam do, every year without fail? Any dishes that are definitively Christmas for you? Something you always bake? I'd love to hear about them! ❤️ We've never really had any one thing we did every Christmas as a family. My sister and I usually watch 'Da Kath and Kim Code' (#classic ) and we normally spend Christmas eve with old family friends, eating great food and playing bowls. But that is all really... 🎄 Now I have my own small family, I really want to create some traditions we can all look forward to in the years to come. Perhaps something I bake for breakfast every Christmas morning, or a family activity that remains a steady every year... ✨ I think a tradition or two is a great way to create some magic and excitement around the day, without relying on gifts alone (I'm thinking about young kids here). I'm going to give the latest recipe by @local_milk (raw vegan gingerbread) a go tomorrow- perhaps that might become our Christmas morning treat? (perfect for our summery Christmases, as they can be dried in a dehydrator rather than turning on the oven). So tell me, what is your fave Christmas tradition? #twelvedaysofchristainability

It's the tenth day, and we're talking wrapping... A part of gifting that I really enjoy. I love making a carefully selected gift even more special with beautiful, thoughtful presentation. ✨ And you can make it beautiful without even going to the shops! (if you're like me and keep newspaper and jute string on hand at all times, hoard brown paper bags you have collected, and have rosemary in the garden). These are my staples for wrapping gifts: String, newspaper, brown paper, greenery that lasts once picked (rosemary, straw flowers, eucalypt...), fabric, and a black fineline pen. ✨ Fabric is a great no waste option for gifts going to close family or friends, as they can give it back once gifts are opened (or you can make it part of the present!) ✨ Once you start thinking about it from a different angle, there are so many beautiful, creative ways to wrap your Christmas gifts--without having to buy any wrapping paper, ribbon or anything that gets used once and thrown away. It doesn't have to be complicated-- newspaper, string and a gumleaf are wonderful. #twelvedaysofchristainability

It has become a habit to buy plastic toothbrushes because it's what our mouths are used to, ignoring the fact that these pose a significant environmental issue to our planet. These plastic toothbrushes create an incredible amount of waste in landfills & oceans. Since one year, the four of us use a bamboo toothbrush. There are several benefits that offer the assurance of saving our planet from the hazardous effects of plastic. Here are just a few: 1. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant, without the presence of any chemicals or pesticides. 2. The toothbrush handles are completely biodegradable. They can also be recycled by removing the bristles with pliers and throwing the handles in compost. 3. In addition to benefits to the environment, bamboo toothbrushes are naturally anti-microbial. Say goodbye to nasty bacteria build-up from your bathroom! Are you considering a bamboo toothbrush? By buying one in our webshop, you will support us in our mission to inspire as many people as possible to switch to a sustainable lifestyle.

For the seventh day, we're still talking gifts. ✨ I usually try to make as many gifts as possible (actually I usually way over-estimate how much I can do before Christmas and then get a bit stressed... But not this year!) I think even if you can make a small thing for your family and friends, it's great. Handmade gifts are full of heart, and it's hard not to feel loved when somebody has taken the time to make you something. ✨ Here's a little list of things I've made Christmases past, in case you want some inspo: Simple pickles Flavoured salts Spiced roasted almonds (super easy and delish!) Sugar body scrub (a very simple one is raw sugar, ground coffee, coconut oiland orange essential oil) Marshmallows (though you do need a heavy duty mixer for this) Kasundi Simple cookies or crackers ✨ This year I have marmalade, zucchini pickles, nougat and beeswax wraps on my list. We'll see if they all get done in time 🤷‍♀️ (the marmalade is all done at least!) #twelvedaysofchristainability

Sleepy Santa 🎅🎄🎁❤
Stillmy favorite #outtakethursday 😂😂
On day six of my christainability project, I come to you a day late, with a picture from the walk we take our daughter on sometimes. 🌳 Why? Because yesterday we were swimming and spending time with family and not really thinking about Christmas at all. So today just don't worry about presents you haven't bought, cookies you haven't baked, who is making the pavlova for Christmas day... Because who really cares about any of that stuff? 😉 I mostly enjoy Christmas, making gifts and planning what food to cook, decorating the tree and seeing family I don't often see, but I also know that I can take a bit too much on and pointlessly stress about getting everything done in time. Which is not at all what it should be about. ✨ So take some breaths, go for a walk, don't worry about who is doing what for Christmas day... If you end up with two pavlovas nobody will really be sad about that, will they? ❤️ (and I'll be back here this afternoon with some homemade gift ideas, for after your little breather x) #twelvedaysofchristainability

ADVENTKALENDER ~In onze tuin is alles langzamerhand bruin geworden. In de moestuinbak staat een boerenkool eenzaam te overwinteren en in de top van de mispel hangen nog een paar vruchten te rijpen tot ze vallen en opgegeten worden door de merels. Een strijdbaar goudsbloempje doet of het nog nazomer is. Tussen de planten liggen blaadjes waartussen insecten kruipen en laatst nog kroop er een egel door onze Vinextuin.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hoe klein het lapje grond om je huis ook is, je kunt altijd iets doen om de dieren om je heen te helpen. Een paar tegels eruit en wilde bloemen er in, een bak met groen op je balkon. Alle beetjes helpen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ De wilde bloemen en kastanjes van Duns Sweden zaten vandaag in de adventskalender. Vandaag krijg je 25% korting op de collectie van Duns Sweden met de code Duns25. Ook op de items die al afgeprijsd waren. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Je vindt ze hier: https://www.littleshoparoundthecorner.nl/c-2603047/duns-sweden/⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #duns #dunssweden #organiccotton #organickidswear #sustainablekidsfashion #sustainablefamily
That’s his 🧀 face and a countdown chart to a joint birthday party at the weekend. (Joint cos mama has limits 🤣.) These two are the reason I have made so many of the changes towards healthier more mindful living. Whether it’s what touches their skin, goes in their bodies, or how we are impacting the world they will inherit ... they make me think so much more about my choices and my purchases. Today on the blog I partnered with @solorganix to talk about why I first chose organic cotton (spoiler alert: I thought it was a pointless gimmick.) . . And even better, I know some of you missed the Black Friday sale so they have given me a coupon for you 👉🏼 get 20% off with the code WFD20. Yay! Thanks @solorganix and happy shopping!!

And on the fifth day of christainability... We talk about gifts! 🎁 I'm going to do a few posts about gifts, because it has (regrettably) become such a big part of Christmas, and hopefully over the next few days we'll come up with some new ideas and inspiration. ❤️ Today I'm sharing an idea given to me just the other day by a new friend. Her extended family have decided to do a secret santa based around dinner parties, rather than tangible gifts. 🍜 Each person chooses a month and a theme from the hat, and then they host a dinner that fits the brief for the fam. 😊 So they are giving each other the gifts of their time, company and good food, and the promise of catch ups throughout the year. So lovely. #twelvedaysofchristainability
#Repost @nowhereandeverywhere_ with @get_repost ・・・ Today I gently refused a PLASTIC bag full of samples at the pediatric dentist office (PLASTIC tooth brush and single-use PLASTIC floss picks included among other things). They gave me the exact same bag of ‘goodies’ six months ago, so I’m assuming every parent gets one at least twice a year... So I decided to stop this contradiction of polluting the word in the name of dental health. We already have what we need at home and there are plastic free options to take care of our teeth. I’m trying to readjust my life to become more and more sustainable every day. This list is a good reminder of things we can do to become greener and work on our zero waste goal as a family. . . . #zerowaste #plasticfree #noplastic #sustainableliving #reuse #refuse #repair #sustainablefamily

Advent calendars: yes or no? ✨ I haven't had one since I was a child, and they were those supermarket ones with the crappy chocolate. ✨ I read about a family's beautiful Advent tradition the other day. Every year they write 24 little cards with nice things they could do for other family members, nice outings they can take together, or things they can do for other people. They stick it up on the wall and work through it together in the weeks leading up to Christmas. ✨ I love this idea! It's so much nicer than a tiny square of crappy chocolate, and it's something I can't wait to do with Lila when she is a little bigger. ✨ Does anyone else have any other Advent traditions? #twelvedaysofchristainability

So I’ve been doing some big 2019 vision planning for my business around the craziness that is motherhood. #mumlife am I right? 🤦🏻‍♀️ And I picked up my Magnolia essential oil roller. Now, I actually hated the smell of Magnolia when I first received it. Buuut... surprisingly, it’s grown on me. And now? Well, it’s inspiring me to dream bigger and reach down into who I really am to find my deepest passions. Wow! Let me tell you, I am so pumped for 2019! I’m also scared of how big my dream is, but a wise lady once told me, if my dreams aren’t scary, they aren’t big enough. Go for Gold! And that’s my plan. 😉 I can’t wait to reveal my exciting fresh vision for the new year! 🙌🏻❤️ ————————— #mum #mumlife #busymum #busymums #mummy #bossmum #businessmum #workfromhomemum #workfromhomemummy #kids #family #bigplans #2019planning #calmmum #happymum #happyfamily #essentialoils #declutter #declutteryourlife #declutteryourhome #peacefulhome #naturalhome #sustainableliving #sustainablefamily #naturalliving #blogger #mumblogger #mumbloggers

She calls it her princess ballerina dress.🧚🏼‍♀️Every week she wears it. I bought it secondhand for under 10£ with a few sequins missing, but she doesn’t care one bit. 👧🏻Fine by me as it’s just a daily school outfit for messy play-days. 🎨 • Did you know the average fast-fashion wear is only 5 times? That 250 million children work in textile and apparel industry? 👀 • In China there’s a joke that you can predict the ‘IT’ colour of the season by looking at the river (caused by toxic dye run-off).💔 • Fast fashion is cheap because someone else pays for it. 💰 • From the Texas cotton farmers👨🏼‍🌾, to the labourers in Asia🧵🧶, @truecostmovie tells the true story🕵🏻‍♂️ we don’t see. @riverbluethemovie tells the story of water pollution👖. • Ethical, slow, fair trade, second-hand, repaired, swapped... There are so many ways to vote in fashion with our actions and dollars. Pop some popcorn 🍿 sometime and check out one of these films📺, you’ll come away glad you did. 🙏 #whomademyclothes #secondhand #fastfashion #sustainablefamily #slowfashion #ethicalfashion #progressnotperfection

Tomorrow is December... What!! . I don't know when it happened, but it did. So that probably means the Christmas panic/festivities have almost set in. Certainly the baking frenzy will begin in earnest very soon. . I have been trying to celebrate this season in a more sustainable way for the last few years, but there are definitely more things I could change. So this year I've decided to do a 'Twelve days of Christainability' (which is my made up word baby of christmas and sustainability--not great, I know, but the best I could come up with). . From tomorrow, for 12 days, I'll be posting different things you can do or changes you can make to make this year's celebrations a little more planet friendly. To hold myself more accountable, really, and hopefully to discover some new ideas. So if anyone has anything to add to what I come up with, please comment and share! And if anyone wants some inspo right now, check out the 'Reclaiming Christmas' article from @_willworkforfood_ . Happy almost December everyone! (📷 from one of the last #localislovelyworkshop two years ago)

More beauty from this wonderful planet of ours. I’m really thinking hard at what small steps we can make as a family to be more sustainable, to create less waste and to protect our planet a little more. Here’s what we’re doing do far. Please tell me what you’re doing! What are your top tips for being more sustainable? - I buy shampoo and conditioner bars from @lushcosmetics (these work really well) so we have no plastic bottle packaging - we buy veggies from the local green grocers as these are nit wrapped in lots of plastic - this Christmas I look for sustainable kids products, thee are some great company out there - my hubbies hair brush @mantahair comes in fully recyclable packaging - I stop by in charity shops more and more. To drop off and pick up too - I stopped cleaning the house with cleaning products years ago. Instead I’m using apple cider vinegar with lots of water in old spray bottles. It’s something my granny has done for the past 70 years - we have very minimal animal food consumption as a whole family So now, over to you: tell me what you do to help this planet of ours to keep producing beautiful foods like these ☝️🌸😊
