Plastic free. Zero waste. Sustainable living. Saying no to fast fashion and yes to pre-loved clothes. Wherever you currently stand on the journey to creating a more sustainable, planet-friendly lifestyle for you and your family, it’s fair to say that our world’s environmental problems have opened the floodgates to greenwashing - where large corporations make … Continue reading Living a Sustainable Life on Your Terms
Standing in your truth and staying strong in a messy world Planet Earth has become a pretty crazy place to live in recent years and it’s probably fair to say that we’ll be seeing even more craziness in years to come. With this in mind, I’ve been thinking about the skills that we’d need between … Continue reading Create a better future
This article was written for The Jersey Life magazine and first published online on 13 January 2022. *** Time. It appears to be ever present and yet it’s invisible. We have clocks and calendars to measure time in a linear fashion, and yet every passing day feels different to each of us. There are moments … Continue reading Time to Start Living The Good Life?
We’re running out of time. Yet each time there’s a protest by Extinction Rebellion, thousands of people take to social media to leave negative comments, criticise each protestor’s lifestyle and, in many cases, deliberately write nasty, abusive words that make the rest of us scream on the inside with utter despair. If you’re one of … Continue reading Climate change protests – how not to be a dick on social media
Living, writing and creating in Jersey is a breath of fresh air.
Too many of us simply take our island and our beautiful surroundings (and many other amazing things in our lives) for granted.
Our island’s natural beauty and heritage is not a separate entity. It’s interwoven into every piece of creative artwork and lives on forever through each one of us.
I am soooo happy to see that yesterday’s blog about meal prepping without plastic packaging was such a big hit with my audience!
This tells me one AMAZING thing about you….
That you’re looking for ways to help the environment, you’re compassionate and you’re craving ways to find inner peace in a crazy, messed-up world.
Today, I thought I’d share something a little different; an insight into my meal prep Sunday and food shopping over the past few days.
Now, I don’t meal prep EVERY Sunday, in fact, I’ve been pretty rubbish about planning in general lately which has led to rather too many simple meals of pasta in tomato sauce, or noodles with vegetables or yet another lentil curry.
It’s a true fact that we’ve all got too much stuff!
It’s time we stopped collecting, consuming and drowning in possessions.
It’s time to make our lives more simple, more rewarding and more healthy - for our own well-being and for the health of our planet.
Frequently we feel guilty for NOT feeling fulfilled when clearly we have so much more than others - like a roof over our heads, a healthy bank balance, happy children and a regular, well paid job.
The secret to living your truth in both life and business, is to always come back to your inner truth and core values.
Think about what really lights you up - the things that give you a giant warm, fuzzy heart or butterflies in your stomach - and then do more of that!
