August was again very busy for me, mostly working and working some more. I am so happy it’s finally September and I have my two little holidays to relax and rewind! I am also more excited about this blog and the direction I am going with it with more sustainable and fashion posts, as apparent from the posts in August (I hope you like it as well) and following the inspiration of new month and new beginnings.
I started posting Sustainable New of the Month, which is just a collection of sustainable articles I’ve found very interesting although there are many more! I shared TED talks about sustainability and talked about Sustainable Fashion terminology. I wrote reviews on Before the Flood and Chasing Coral documentaries, which I do recommend for you to watch. In addition, I wrote opinion pieces questioning whether Big brands are stealing small brand’s thunder and Why do we expect fashion to be cheap.
Otherwise, my month was slightly better with finally finding amazing natural deodorant and sharing with you the amazing Lush cuticle cream. I’ve also been really enjoying books and my friends’ company, and the little moments in life!
What were you up to in August?
The big little things
For Christmas, we got money with which we bought a new bed, a side table for me and a laundry basket. Simple things, but oh the joy! The bed has underneath drawers which fit in them so much stuff. The organisational freak inside me got a treat when I got to organise all out drawers again and make our house a much more organised and neater looking space. But the most excited I am for the laundry basket. It is neat and tidy looking and fits a lot inside. We used to use a big Ikea bag before, which I didn’t want to keep in the room, but we were too lazy to put the laundry into the walking wardrobe either, so this has finally solved the problem and I am so happy with the new found neatness in our flat!
Reading my new books
It took me 2 and a half months to read a book in the end of the year 2016, so when at Christmas I finally had time to read I’ve finished 3 books within 3 weeks! Actually, one I finished in just 2 days. The enjoyment of reading was one of the favourite bits of my holiday and I’ve kept it up since!
I always decorate my house with flowers over Christmas, but this year only poinsettia was flowering over the holidays. My amaryllis grew and grew, but it flowered only this week. And I’ve been planning to acquire an orchid for ages now and finally I bought one that I love. I have already read instructions on how to care for it and am adamant to keep it alive!
I am loving everything jasmine at the moment! I have green tea with jasmine, which makes me so happy. And when I go to bed I use jasmine oil to fill the room with a lovely scent. Such a lovely way to go to bed! I would definitely recommend this shop if you are looking to get some jasmine oil for yourself!
What have you been loving these past few weeks?
