Using soft toilet paper is worse than driving a hummer in terms of carbon footprint. So this week I’m campaigning for a more natural solution that I’ve tested for almost a year now. Why toilet paper is evil 1. Production, wrapping, shipping Production, wrapping and shipping makes using especially soft toilet paper worse than driving […]

Make lipstick from red clay

14 apr

I promised I would let you know how to succesfully make a natural red lipstick, since my last one turned into plain lipbalm, which is great but doesn’t work if you’re like me and sometimes want to look like a crossover between a French actress from the fourties and Wilma Flintstone. So here is the […]

homemade lipbalm you can eat

I’m wearing shoes again

Last week, after some cold days, two of my toes started to act weirdly. They are swollen and they haven’t gotten back to normal. It’s not serious, they don’t hurt, but I noticed how fast this goes without really noticing, as you start to feel less when it gets cold. It made me realise I […]

The cold shower has never been a biggy for me. After 2 weeks I was used to it and after 3 I even started to like it. Then I found out it’s actually great for your health. It apparently improves your immune system, skin and a lot more. I also calculated how much it saves in […]

Last rule: no phone or internet for 10 days

28 jul

This tuesday onwards I won’t be using internet or a phone for 10 days. What I will do during this digital detox: I´ll go to friends without knowing if they’re home and if they feel like seeing me. I don’t know about your country but in the Netherlands this is quite unusual. I´ll write an […]
