How do you store your clamps? I find the extra few feet on the garage door track works well for me. #nickmodesigns #tools #clamps #toolstorage #toolreview #usewhatyouvegot

I'm all about pies at the moment. I reckon pies provide an easy source of deliciousness during this Springtime Hungry Gap. They also provide comfort during these days of never ending bushfire and big dry. They may just be the most perfect frugal hedonist food as they allow you to incorporate little bits of lots of things. Pie will accomodate your limitations with joy and excitement. This one was inspired by an Italian torte - lots of green leaves, leek, homemade ricotta, lemon, olives, potato and little bit of jersey feta encased in spelt olive oil pastry. I was worried it might be tough and weird because its baking was interrupted by approaching bushfire. But no, it forgave the interruption and was actually just pure yum.
Now that the yellowjackets are mostly gone, I can enjoy my cast iron tub--and the view!
Our nights are in the low 40s...I'm worried my wheat won't ripen before we freeze.
My tomatillos kept disappearing and I was blaming the wood rat. But apparently they were being stolen by a burrowing rodent. Arghhh
Hodge podge dinner of leftovers: miso coleslaw and eggplant, tofu, pepper, onion, edamame, caulirice stir fry plus I grilled eggplant, topped with leftover cashew “cheese” sauce and grilled fresh ‘chai’ apples. No added sugar and my new favorite way to have apples- brushed with a little melted coconut oil and topped with Quatre epices, cardamom and a little extra nutmeg 🍏 #glutenfree #dairyfree #glutenfreevegan #grilledveggies #farmersmarketveggies #localproduce #dinnerleftovers #usewhatyouvegot #weeknightdinner #quickdinner #easydinner #meatlessmeals #grilledapples #mediterraneandiet #eatarainboweveryday #whatadietitianeats #dietitianfood
Earlier this week I worked on such a fun styling project on these built-ins and, for once, I remembered to take a before shot (swipe)! First, we shopped my client’s house for some personal accessories to add in. “Shopping the House” is one of my favorite (and budget-friendly) things to do with my clients to show them how to think and look differently at things they already own. After that, we added in some books, a few other accessories (a mix of brass and Chinoiserie 🙌), a basket for some texture and, of course (my personal favorite), some live plants. I love how layered, collected and lived-in the space feels now.
@tonicpolish Cerise Noir. I love these vampy dark polishes and this one is amazing!!! 😍😍 I've had this one for quite sometime and I'm not understanding what took so long to try it 🤦‍♀️ ❤❤ . . . . . . . . . . #nailpolishaddict #nailpolishjunkie #notd #manioftheday #indieaddict #indiepolish #supportindies #prettynails #nailsofinstagram #nails2inspire #usewhatyouvegot #ellysnails #prettynailsrocks #untried #untried2018 #tonicpolish #groupcustom #blackheartedbeauties #fallpolish
As i finished way more than 18 items in my project of “ Finish 18 in 2018”, i decided to start a new project. Why not to start with 12 Pans of Christmas project 🤪 Some items are the same as in my previous project. But there’s something “new” also. Let me introduce the items: 1. The Body Shop Strawberry body butter. 2. Maybelline Fit Me foundation. 3. L’Oreal mini size mud mask. There was 3 in one pack. And i have 2 of them left. 4. Eucerin micellar water. I have 2 of them. And i want to finish them both. 5. The Balm Cindy - Lou Manizer highlihter. As it’s so hard to finish up powder product, i want to see some progress at least. 6. Artdeco lipstick no85. I hope to finish it. 7. Maybelline lipstick in Mad For Magneta. 8. Wet’n’Wild bronzer in Bikini Contest. 9. Guerlain blush in Peach Party 10. Nivea lip butter. 11. Byphasse eye makeup remover. 12. Rimmel Oh My Gloss lip gloss. #projectpan #panningcommunity2018 #panningcommunity #panning #panningmakeup #panning #panningmystash #makeuplover #makeuplovers #makeuplover 💄 #makeupjunkie #makeupjunkies #usewhatyouhave #usewhatyougot #usewhatyouvegot #usewhatyouhavegot #useup #useitup #useitupfillitupchallenge #useitup2018 #projectpanner #projectpanners #projectpanning #projectpan2018 #10atatime2018 #enjoywhatyouhave
Healthier version of #chickenteriyaki for the win!🙌🏼 This is what’s leftover from tonight’s dinner and it’ll also be Kyle’s lunch for tomorrow. I’ll be eating the last of our hamburger stew I made this weekend.😋 He rated this meal a 9.37 out of 10.. only because I wouldn’t let him eat more.🤣 hey, if I had let him eat it.. he wouldn’t have lunch for tomorrow. I feel like he’ll thank me later.🤓 . . • Sliced 1lb of chicken into bite-Size pieces. • Seasoned with Himalayan pink salt and black pepper. • Cooked the chicken in olive oil over medium-high heat. • Minced up one clove of garlic and sautéed with the chicken. • Once the chicken was cooked through I added 1/3 of a cup of coconut aminos, 1/4 cup of coconut sugar, sesame seeds, and approx. 1tbs of tapioca starch. • Stirred and simmered until the sauce was nice and thick. • Served over basmati rice and topped with extra sesame seeds. . . Y’all, this only took me 30 minutes. I had no idea what I was making for dinner when I walked in the kitchen and came up with this.🙌🏼 We use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. Soy sauce is loaded with a ridiculous amount of sodium! I also used coconut sugar rather than brown sugar because it has a lower glycemic index because it contains a type of fiber called inulin. Inulin helps slow the rate at which your body absorbs sugar. It helps prevent blood sugar spikes.🤟🏼 . . It’s not the “healthiest” meal ever, but it’s made with healthier alternatives and I was in control of what went into it. I also prepped dinner for tomorrow night! Sheet-pan chicken fajitas.🤗 #pantrycleanout #usewhatyouvegot #mealplanning #healthyonabudget #foodismedicine #learnyourfood #takeoutfakeout
This is how I harvest those little seeds like chard, onion, carrot, and beet. My fall garden looks a mess!
As I pack my pretties, I stumble across an untried that is perfect for fall. This is @noodlesnailpolish Five Rose Gold Rings. 😍😍 I'll slowly get through my mountain of untrieds. It's my "before the end of year" goal. My mountain is so big that I fear many pretties are going unnoticed 🙈 . . . . . . #nailpolishaddict #nailpolishjunkie #notd #manioftheday #indieaddict #indiepolish #supportindies #prettynails #nailsofinstagram #nails2inspire #usewhatyouvegot #ellysnails #prettynailsrocks #untried #untried2018 #noodlesnailpolish #fiverosegoldrings #crelly #crellyobsessed #crellyglitter #crellypolish

Things don't have to be fancy or complicated to be worth doing. My decades-old ironing board cover finally reached a point where it was no longer useable. I used a piece of insulating quilt batting (the kind used in oven mitts) and a thrifted sheet from my fabric stash to make a new one. Problem solved. 🙂 #Ironing #IroningBoardCover #Sewing #SimpleSewing #KeepItSimple #EverydaySewing #HouseholdSewing #FrugalSewing #Upcycling #UpcycleSewing #UseWhatYouveGot #WasteNotWantNot #Sewist #Upcyclist #Maker #BeAMaker
Amen 🙌 Happy Friday. There’s so much more to life than our momentary troubles. Be encouraged, you are loved and God is for you even when it seems the world is against you. Materials: ▪️Jane Davenport Aquabrush pens (size B & F) ▫️Crayola Watercolor paint ▪️Sharpie thin marker ▫️Blank card (this is not watercolor paper, but I still like the way it turned out).
#tbt is always a good time when looking back at old faces.

Trying to work through my untrieds before the end of the year. Here's O.P.I. DS Titanium. It's very pretty, but just meh for me. Metallic colors just aren't my love, but I appreciate the holo glitter in the polish.

Try sautéing chunky cut celery and sliced garlic in the pan before adding spinach to sauté/wilt; it’s a super easy way to add some bite and different layers of flavour. Plonked with kraut, avo, olive oil, and the last of that salad for @gbchefs... #vegan #fridgeforage #win 😋😋. * 🥗🌱 An early supper for me this evening (about 5:30!) as I’m reading the work of Dr Satchin Panda (as recommended by @drchatterjee ) on circadian rhythms... there are so many health benefits to consolidating our eating and giving our guts a longer break overnight to digest our food. It’s fascinating; I feel The Circadian Code sits on an intersection of cutting edge science/research and ancient wisdoms... what time do you have supper?? * #vegcentric #foodwithtime #fridgeforage #zerowaste #fridgeraid #usewhatyouvegot #thriftycooking #vegansupper #whatveganseat #kraut #sauerkraut #fermentedcabbage #guthealth #fermentingforflavour #feelbetterlivemore #circadianrhythms #tre #timerestrictedeating

Such a great way to use up your herbs instead of throwing them out (or composting). Repost @aintnoplanetb ・・・ When the fridge gives you sad, old, wilted parsley: Dehydrate the leaves in the oven and freeze the stalks for veggie stock. Too easy! . . For extra brownie points, grow your own herbs 🌱 #zerofoodwaste #zerowaste #herbs #foodwaste #usewhatyouvegot #makedo #parsley #yum #organic #produce #preservetheharvest #eattheharvest #sustainability #sustainable #greenliving
•ZERO WASTE SHOPPING• How does zero waste shopping work you ask? As simple as it seems, for anyone who didn’t know/for the 2 of you that might be curious it works like this: 1️⃣Bring jars/ containers/ recently emptied ice cream tubs... whatever you have to the shop, weigh each tub and label it with its ‘tare’ this means once you've filled the jar its weight can be deducted. 2️⃣Fill your jar with whatever your heart desires ⚖️🍪 3️⃣Weigh your jar again and sticker with the weight of whatever you've filled it with ⚖️🍯🍇 4️⃣Take filled jars to the counter to be scanned and paid for 💷 Simple as that! You can bring spice jars to be refilled, try out tiny amounts of new ingredients, or stock up like I’ve tried to do for moving back to Birmingham! I found most of these jars for a couple of quid after trawling the local charity shops, and used a recently emptied mayo jar for the veg stock I bought. After resisting the urge to buy a whole bunch of brand new aesthetically pleasing matching jar #usewhatyouvegot and decided to use what I had/ the local charity shops could provide to shop at @zwastenotwantnotbridport . Grateful my parents live down the road from such a great zero waste shop! If you’re unsure if you do there are sites online that will tell you the location of your nearest zero waste/bulk store 🍶🛒🚯 #zerowasteshopping

Creativity!!! (Well boredom + inquiry = something cool!) I was experimenting with my #coconutoil one day. I wanted an #aftersuncream that wasn't sticky like plain #aloeveragel ... Well, I ended up "creating" something I use now when I'm too lazy to make #diy #whippedbodybutter by @trashisfortossers Quick and easy ~4:1 ratio of 💚aloe vera gel 💛coconut oil ➡whip into a frenzy (I use a fork) until it turns white and holds firm like a cream pie!😉 ➡store in container 🌺I'm using this container for my trip to Hawai'i!!!

Figuring out “what breaks my heart” and being willing to do something about it was one of the first steps toward being proactive with my time and how I spend it. Today begins another round of photography workshop for the teenage girls of Wellspring Living. They’ve been rescued from the sex trafficking industry and given a fresh start. My prayer is that with a few donated cameras and my “yes” lives will be forever impacted. . . . . . #mybestyes #simpleliving #whatbreaksyourheart #endit #enditmovement #lazylady #accountability #photography #photographyforgood #usewhatyouvegot

I got the @ninezerolacquer Super Crellies Collection and couldn't decide which to wear first, so I wore four at once 😁 From left to right: Pch-Pchew, What A Peach (bottle shown), Mr. Mischief, Antihero.

Super fast, and in one nap!!! It's zipped in, but needs rounded edges, sanding, and paint. Then I'll throw some trim and a backer out of whatever else is laying around.

Just like that - the holidays are over and it’s September! For lots of us this means back to school supplies. Maybe I’m just mean, lazy or disorganised - but raiding our stationary drawer can also save unnecessary plastic purchases! It seems that we already have most things needed. I bought these Staedtler highlighter pencils last year, to avoid the plastic ones - they work really well and come in a cardboard box! Am sending my youngest off with an old Vaseline tin for pencil sharpenings, will see how he gets on!! I haven’t managed to find a plastic free alternative to the glue stick yet - it would be great if these could be refilled.....#pencils #pencilcase #newyear #newterm #backtoschool #plasticfree #ish #staedtler #usewhatyouvegot

Here is a snap of authentic zero waste living for a family. One of the inevitable side parts of containering everything and making yummy food from scratch is washing up. Plastics and packaging companies recognised this as a perceived problem, so capitalised on this. You can see from my washing up that I always wash up my saucepans, cakepans, crystal wine glasses, pastry brush, baking dishes and coffee percolator. There is plastic and silicone in that washing up. I do believe in intentional plastic use as well as use what you already have. My Tupperware is here to stay and my silicone cupcake moulds are used frequently. #authenticzerowasteliving #zerowasteliving #zerowastehome #zerowastelifestyle #realliving #thisiszerowaste #aimforzerowaste #zerowastefreedom #livingzerowaste #everydayliving #beauthentic #letsgetreal #lowwasteliving #frenchfortuesday @morethanamumma #usewhatyouhave #usewhatyouvegot #intentionalplasticuse #washingup
Didn't have to water today as we got .25" of rain last night! Daytime temps finally dropped. Bucked another load of wood to split into firewood. Moved straw bales to staging outside bunny hutches and chicken coop for the winter. Reasonably uneventful day integrating the chicks into the main flock. Baked low-carb cheese bread. G'nite from WilderNest!
@smittenkitchen Honey Cake- didn't have ground cloves so added black pepper, nutmeg, ground ginger. Baked in a 10" and 6" cast iron pan. #usewhatyouvegot * * Honey from my hive*

I love love love these #handmade #diy cloth makeup-remover pads that, yes... My amazingly talented and creative mom made! 💞🌈 First, I wash my face with my #barsoap . Second, I use #coconutoil as a #natural makeup remover, and put it on the pad for the tougher #makeup (mascara, eyeliner). Then, I rinse the makeup off the pad before I put them in a garment bag I keep under the sink. It is handy and easy to take off and just throw straight in the wash! 👍 Why make things more complicated than they need to be, right? ... Save money 💸with reusables🔄, and using products you already have - instead of buying single-use products🚮 or plastic products with chemicals nasties.🚫 Help the environment too!🌎 #ecofriendly #naturalproducts #reusable #reusablecottonrounds #avoidsingleuse #makeupremover #usewhatyouvegot

This morning i finished Sleek depotted eyeshadow. I will bring in,as replacement, to my project of “Finish 18 In 2018” , Christian Dior single eyeshadow. This will be challenging. I don’t think i could actually finish this soon, but this eyeshadow is very good , and deserves more love. My colleague once decided, that she wants to start wearing eyeshadow too. So, she bought this one. But ended up not liking wearing eyeshadow. She sold it to me with only 5 euros 🤩 But it’s just so hard to give enough attention to single eyeshadows. Swatches are without and with primer. #projectpan #finish18in2018 #finish18by2018 #finish18by18 #finish18in18 #panningcommunity #panningcommunity2018 #panning #makeuplove #panningmakeup #panningmystash #makeuplovers #makeuplover #makeuplover 💄 #makeupjunkie #makeupjunkies #skincarejunkie #skincarejunkies #usewhatyouhave #usewhatyougot #usewhatyouvegot #usewhatyouhavegot #useup #useitup2018 #useitup #projectpanner #projectpanners #10atatime2018 #christiandior

My meal plan for next week the beginning of my pantry challenge. In no order ill pick day of. Chicken stir fry Mongolian pork stir fry Butter chicken Steak, prawns and salad Roast pork meal with salad and potatoes Bangers and mash (buy gravy) Dim Sims and pork dumplings Tomatoes soup Tuna pasta salad (my lunches) Actually very happy i only need to buy gravy for my meal plan! Then some lunch stuff for soon to be hubby's work lunches. Bread milk and fresh fruit. I'm hoping to stay under $50 this week! We have a budget of $100 but we are good for nappies, wipes and household goods.
Corn & broccoli stuffed Yorkies 😍. Bacon for him. You wouldn’t believe the concoction.. it sounds odd but tastes very good: corn and broccoli sautéed with milk; creamed and cooked with brown beer, tarragon and tahini. Half corn and broccoli reserves to stir in with chives and lemon thyme. Finished with mesquite fleur de sel and fresh cracked pepper. . Confession: used packaged Yorkshire pudding mix. It’s just not the same as homemade mountainous yorkies but it did the trick 😉. . . #omnomnom #dinner #yummy #yorkshirepudding #yorkshire #vegetarian #meatforhim #food #delicious #dinner #craftycook #usewhatyouvegot #stuffedyorkies #funinthekitchen
