It all comes back one day… so here we are, our beloved 70’s flared jeans are back in business! Take a look on how to combine them in 2017, where to buy them, and how to chose the perfect pair to match your body…
Did you hear of the urban jungle bloggers? That’s the trendy interior design I discovered recently, and I love it! Huge plants, animal prints, petrol blue and emeraude colors. I really like this cosy, creative and nature trend!
The days become longer and warmer… yes yes we’re heading towards spring and summer!! And today I’d like to show you one of my favourite fashion trend spring/summer 2017: the bodysuit!
I’ve read a lot of books lately about work organisation to deal with my workload and have a more easy-going private life. My favourite lately:
The Four-Hour-Workweek of Tim Ferris!
I am always looking for beauty hacks that avoid any kind of unnecessary plastic waste. I only have few prerequisites: it should be easy to use, be effective and shouldn’t cost a fortune!
I have recently researched a bit on the topic of hair-washing. Are there any good alternatives to using chemical shampoos stored in plastic bottles?
Might a NoPoo (no shampoo) alternative be suitable for my hair?
After I had adopted Leilah, I quickly realized what a challenge it would be to thrive for a zero waste lifestyle. I would normally try to avoid waste as much as possible by using waste-avoiding alternatives, such as bringing tote bags for shopping instead of using plastic bags. But what to do with dog food tins, dog cookies packed in plastic wrapping and, in particular, dog nappies. All of this visibly increased the amount of waste I generated from now to then!
I quickly found quite waste-friendly alternatives for the food issue: You could buy dog dry food in big batches containing 15-20 kg, which would last half a lifetime for Leilah. I even found a booth at the local farmers market at Hamburg, Immenhof, the owners agreed to sell (dry) dog cookies in cloth bags I brought.
There also is an easy alternative for dog poo bags: Available in online stores, you can find dog poo bags made out of corn stark. Those little bags degenerate much quicker than any plastic bag, which will need up to 100 years to fall apart.
One problem remained: What should I do with the endless dog nappies I needed when Leilah still wasn’t house-trained? On “bad” days, Leilah needed 2 of these…
Even though Leilah got house-trained quite quickly, I started to look for alternatives in the 3rd week after the adoption. I was already fed up by the nappy waste we generated!
And guess what I found: an eco-friendly lawn loo!!!
I must admit I am not the most gifted chef, but there is one recipe that all my friends praise once they have tasted it. Thus, upon request by several of them, I am delighted to post today the repice for my Hokkaido pumpkin–apple–lasagne!
This lasagne is irresistible due to the creaminess of the baked Hokkaido pumpkin (also called red kuri squash), the hearty minced meat as well as the sourness of the apples.
