I didn’t post anything last week for Meap Prep Monday as I’m trying to get a bit ahead with my meal preps. Normally, I’ll meal prep Sunday or Monday and then post it right away on Monday. That doesn’t give me a lot of time to try out the recipes (though I definitely sample as I cook!) and take pictures. For this post, I’ll share with you what I meal prepped last week. It gave me a little more time to try things out.Read More »
When making low waste swaps, some things are harder than others. Finding a good deodorant that works with your body AND comes in sustainable packaging? Hard. Finding toilet paper that ISN’T wrapped in non-recyclable plastic? So, so easy. Get comfy because we are going to talk way more about toilet paper then I’m sure you ever thought you would!Read More »
Another week, another meal prep.
Last week, I got the news that I will be officially, 100% furloughed, which isn’t great but unfortunately, not that surprising when you work in travel. When countries are literally banning you from visiting, it makes it a little difficult to maintain your job planning international trips. Please wear a mask so we can get this virus under control and I can get back to work and we can all get back to traveling the world.Read More »
This week is actually 4th of July week. 4th of July. Wasn’t it March just last week?????
Here are my groceries for this week. My co-op has reopened for shoppers (yeah!), though allowing reusable bags for produce is questionable. I may be throwing everything in my cart willy-nilly next week if they don’t allow them!Read More »
Hello, everyone! So, my video from yesterday is not loading but it’s available on Instagram. There should be a link to my IG on the right hand side of this post if you want to check it out.
Since I can’t load the video here, I will post the information as text so you don’t miss out.Read More »
Since moving toward a low-waste lifestyle, I have been trying to shop local and shop small. Lush, unfortunately, does not fit that bill but they are one of the first companies that I fell in love with when I was switching to all-natural products several years back. Throughout the years, they have made continuous strides to lessen the waste that they offer including taking back their packaging for reuse and offering “naked” products like shampoos, conditioners, solid moisturizers and soaps. The real reason I’m featuring them, though, is that they have brick and mortar stores with an incredibly helpful staff. I think when you are starting on a low waste journey, or are looking for products with cleaner ingredients, it can be really intimidating. Instead of scrolling through pages on line, you can talk to real people about what your looking for and get recommendations.Read More »
It’s been over a month since I posted anything and since then so much has been going on in the world. Last week was particularly heavy, but necessary, with the protests and conversations that George Floyd’s death sparked. I took some time away from posting and sponged up as much of the information as I could. I think the most interesting thing I watched was 13th on Netflix. I highly recommend it.Read More »
Happy Wednesday, everyone! This post was supposed to go live on Monday but my blog and I are having a bit of a fight. I accidentally changed the layout on Monday when I went to post this and haven’t been able to figure out how to change it back. My bad! Hopefully, it will be fixed by next week. Until then, bear with me.Read More »
Ahhh, tis the season! The sun is warmer, the days are longer and you’re itching to get outside and soak up all the Vitamin D.Read More »
Happy Earth Day, everyone! I couldn’t let this holiday go by without a post of some sort. If you are following my on IG today, I’m sort of doing a walk through of my day and some of the eco-friendly products that I use. I’ll try and save those stories to a Highlight if you want to review them later.Read More »
