Home Office Revamp

A few months ago my office space had a revamp! For about 5 years my desk space was solid top fold up picnic table and a fold up picnic chair with 2 low Ikea Billy bookshelves I shared with P. This year my desk kinda expanded as I ‘borrowed’ the twin fold up table for desk extension. Things got a little cramped at times, the top wasn’t always clutter free and a trip to Ikea last year got me thinking maybe it’s time for a new desk.

I fell in love with their white faux leather Skruvsta 1950/60’s inspired chair that’s super comfy and said my name as I sat swivelling in. Continue reading “Home Office Revamp”

Recycle Less Update #1

This is a first in a series of switch outs as I make my way to producing less waste, in particular plastic consumption. I don’t think I’ll ever be 100% zero waste, but the choices I make I can make a substantial difference in the amount of plastic I consume. Aside from the usual switches all over YouTube (skin care, water bottles etc) I’ve included kitchen and laundry switch outs. Skin care is the hardest for me to reduce as I love my beauty products!

Cosmetics and Skin Care

Body Soap

I switched out shower gel for body soaps and so far happy with the switch. Continue reading “Recycle Less Update #1”

Recycle Less. YouTube Made Me Do It

I’ve been thinking about this post for a while. I’m vegan and try to be environmentally friendly conscious however you call it. I’m also finding myself which is probably part of growing up (not age as age makes you sound old) not buying into the hype or wanting so many possessions.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Zero waste, minimalism and fast fashion kept popping up on my YouTube feed as I’ve been watching tiny houses. I don’t even know if it was tiny houses or how I found tiny houses on YouTube rabbit warren trip that lead me to them. However they kept popping up and YouTube made me realise I’m not that environmentally friendly. I use a huge deal of disposable items, Continue reading “Recycle Less. YouTube Made Me Do It”

Books 2016 Part 1

When I wasn’t outside playing as a kid, my nose buried in a book. Which my Mum loved and was puzzled by. I read so much my spelling should have been amazing. It’s not and it wasn’t until my mid teens my parents realised I’m mildly dyslexic. No one ever told me and it was until P said something I thought maybe. Recently I mentioned it to my Mum and she said when they realised, it was too late. That’s why I hardly use ‘big’ words and my Spanish pronunciation isn’t what it should. I joke and it’s true I can’t pronounce words in my own language which usually lets me off a little. It doesn’t affect my day to day life much, I’ve learnt to work around it and play I’m learning Spanish. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For the past few years I confess I haven’t read many books since Apple released the iPhone. Internet at my Continue reading “Books 2016 Part 1”

Christmas Markets And That Productive Buzz

I’ve found my running costume for the Buff Epic Run, a 8km no timed obstacle race later this month! I ran it for the first time last year and played my costume low key. A polite way of saying sh*t/no effort costume. I’ve no idea what the final result will look like. My back up outfit’s non existent. It’s the wrong time of year to be looking for neon 70’s and 80’s workout outfits as my crafting skills could go either way….OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I hope you’re having great week. Saturday I met up with my friend, Dahae for coffee/tea though we ended up checking out the Fira de Santa Llucia Christmas market and Continue reading “Christmas Markets And That Productive Buzz”
