Slower “Blogging” Start than previously planned…

Hello my Friends!

I would like to be more present to my 2 blogs, but there are a lot of things going on in my Life at the moment… a lot of changes in my “plans”…  I know everything is going to be alright soon (I hope!!)… My head is full of projects and I have to find out where to start but before, I have some “serious things” to achieve… like… my moving in 1 month (I haven’t found an apartment yet!), issues with my lil one and …. ohhhh and a few more worries!

I promise to be back on track as soon as I can!

Much Love Always xox

Great idea!!

Trash Backwards Blog

By Liesl Clark

If you ever have a power outage and need to do an important load of laundry, consider the bathtub! We’ve done bathtub laundry all over the world, mostly because you can do it in any location that has a tub and this simple practice saves a bundle of money if you’re traveling.

Want to GoGreen at lunch?

Everyday a mountain of trash is needlessly thrown away at lunchtime, creating environmental problems, health hazards and wasting hundreds of dollars for every family packing a lunch. School trash cans nationwide are overflowing! Have you thought about going green at lunchtime? ECOlunchbox is an elegant solution to this problem of lunch waste.

With news about the health dangers of plastics growing, green consumers are seeking out non-plastic food containers as well as generally avoiding potentially leachy synthetics when it comes to food packing.

Plastic water bottles. Granola bar plastic packaging. Plastic chip baggies. Plasticized cardboard juice boxes. Cheese stick plastic wrappers. Paper napkins. Plastic yogurt cups. Brown bags. Plastic utensils. Plastic Ziploc baggies.

How to Pack A Waste-Free Lunch:

  • Cloth napkins by ECOlunchbox are great for everyday and make great gifts
  • Snacks packed in nifty stainless steel ECOdippers and ECOpods by ECOlunchbox are healthy for people and our planet.
  • Sandwiches, and other main dishes, fresh fruits and, fresh vegetables, and treats packed in a non-toxic & reusable stainless steel ECOlunchbox bento
  • Reusable utensils are also great.

Hey!!  Thanks so much for all of your warm wishes and congrats regarding my little/BIG announcement 🙂  My partner and I are very excited to be welcoming baby #2 into our family in September.  I’m 21 weeks pregnant and we don’t know yet whether it’s a boy or a girl, but I’ll let you know if we find out!  I’m sure there will be lots of maternity/baby projects coming up around here – I hope you don’t mind!  And while I’ll be up to my usual stuff here on the blog, you may notice a little less posting as I shift gears just a little bit 🙂

I’m a little frustrated right now because I can’t find my camera battery charger ANYWHERE!  My camera is dead and not only can I not take new pictures, but I can’t even transfer old pics off the camera until it’s charged.  I was…
