    DIY All Purpose Cleaner

    I will admit that I haaaate cleaning. Organizing and getting rid of stuff, that’s great. But, daily household chores (dusting, laundry, etc), not my jam at all! A lot of people have all sorts of cleaners in their home; one for dusting, tub, toilet, counters, kitchen, floors, etc. But, do we really need all these different cleaners? The answer is no. The cleaner you use for your kitchen counters is also perfectly fine to use on your bathroom counters, tub, toilet, and more. I mainly use one cleaner in my home and that’s my fabulously easy, all purpose cleaner. Here we go… All you need is 3 ingredients and one…

    Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Hi friends, welcome back! I love cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies. Don’t you? They’re just so warm and cozy and gooey and delicious. Oh my gosh, I’m craving one right now! I have spent many many weeks trying to create the perfect cookie. I made probably 6 or so batches of cookies to do so and came out with, what I think, is the perfect chewy choc chip cookie! These cookies are so delicious and super easy to make! I can’t say much more about them so I think you should just go make them and see for yourself! Did I mention they’re soooo good? Enjoy!

    Homemade Baby Food

    Hi friends! Lets talk about baby food today! My son is a little over 9 months old and has been eating solid food since about 5 and a half months. We started off with rice cereal and then switched to oatmeal cereal. At 6 months we switched to actual food purees. As made obvious by the title, I make our baby food from scratch! Some of the reasons I chose to do this are it being less wasteful, being more natural, and it tastes way better! I found out that conventional store-bought baby food can sit on the shelves for at least two years. I didn’t feel that my baby…

    My Switch to a Menstrual Cup

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hi friends! Last week was long, tiring, rainy, and… full of blood. For some reason menstruation is something we’re afraid to talk about. Why is that? It’s nothing we should be ashamed of, it’s not gross, it’s natural and healthy. Since I don’t think we should be afraid to talk about it, I’m here to talk about the menstrual cup and all it’s glory. Since I’ve started my period I’ve always used pads. When I started my period at thirteen the thought of a tampon going into my vagina was overwhelming and totally not on the table for me. So, I stuck to pads. And…

    Deciding Between Your Well Being and Your Planet

    For me, being less wasteful has been a slow process that is still happening. So far there are plenty of things I’ve gotten rid of, stopped buying, or replaced with less wasteful options. But what about the things that you don’t want to give up? How do you decide if it’s worth keeping or worth getting rid of? Well, that’s completely up to you. You should never feel bad about saying “I can’t get rid of the hand soap I use that comes in plastic bottle”. That’s completely okay. There are more than a few things that I realized I can’t do without or substitute. Some I’m just saying no…

  • Minimalism

    Why Minimalism?

    Minimalism is hardly a new concept. Having had an interest in minimalism for some time, I’ve noticed that there are many ways to interpret “minimalism”. Some people look at it as having a life that is as minimal as possible. Where they have less than 100 items in their home, a very small wardrobe, and very few belongings. I view minimalism a bit differently. I feel minimalism as a way to simplify, declutter, and condense ones life. I want to do this because I feel that holding onto so many things is not what makes me happy. Also, clutter causes me anxiety which creates an unhappy environment. So, I embark…

    Why Zero Waste?

    Zero waste is a very dramatic term. A term that I don’t necessarily follow to a tee at all. Like most Americans, I have found myself producing an unsettling amount of trash on a daily basis. A lot of this trash is totally  unnecessary, and I thought that maybe I could see what I could do to reduce it as much as I could.  This urge to reduce my waste is something that has been culminating for years. I once saw a video of a sea turtle having a straw pulled out of his nose that was absolutely horrific. I also found out that in 2050 there will be more trash…
