From a Shipping Container to a House

I believe that this life is transient. That we shouldn’t feel too attached to anything. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take care of the place that we are in right now.

Ever since we lived in the recycled shipping container cabin, we have always wanted to find a more sustainable and manageable way to live in tune with nature. To live simply. Gently. Taking as little as possible, giving back to the land and working in cohesion rather than dominating. Doing it all in a way that could last…

Towards the end of last year I was contacted by the Marketing Manager of Gwinganna Health Retreat, Tracy. It was one of those “Are you serious??? Oh my god I can’t wipe the smile off my face” emails. She was inviting me to Gwinganna to enjoy a retreat. Free of charge.

DIY Fruit Face Mask

Last week I was asked to comment on a news article about Aspirin facials. I had never heard of them before so I started researching and found the idea quite alarming. So I created a safe, yummy alternative.

Flashback: DIY Candles

One thing I love doing is op shopping. But rather than search for that one-off beautiful dress, I have recently been obsessed with finding the perfect teacup. Not because I love to drink tea (which I most definitely do) but so that I can make soy candles in up-cycled, vintage teacups, glasses and jars. So I thought I’d share with you how I make them.
