Organizing our linen closet today really showed me how many things we’ve been holding onto that we needed to go through and donate.
I never really considered minimizing or only keeping what you love, need, and use until I encountered some of the women on this little app.
Because I love to antique and thrift it can sometimes be a hard thing for me to not just keep adding more and more. I’m trying to be more mindful with what I buy. Will I use it? Does it bring me joy? Is it something I can do without?
I’m still learning and growing in this perspective but I hope that I can continue to live with less stuff and more joy.

Parce que j’ai bien mérité mon chocolat chaud ce soir après avoir fait le déneigement de l’entrée! Maintenant, je prépare mon blogue sur la relation entre la nature et le stress ☺️
It’s been a little (long) while since I’ve shared anything in this account. There’s good reason for that - life is crazy busy with three little wilds and managing two insta accounts is insane!! What I imagine I can get done and what I actually accomplish never look the same. But I do love these oils so much and think every one of you could find a way to love them, too!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If YL is already your jam, share ONE thing you love most about the kit that got you addicted. If you haven’t yet tried these oils out, tell me what holds you back. I would seriously love to help find that special oil that would make you 🎵🎶.
We’ve been taking this little bub to training classes every Monday night. Little family bonding session and she gets free treats to take home from the manager every time 😭 She’s the best girl, but if it’s true that she has some husky in her, she needs some constructive learning time to keep her occupied. Idk what we did to deserve you Zoey baby💕
Have you taken your babes to doggy training? Were happy with her progress already and it’s only been 2 weeks!

Colder months call for cozy meals like this warm and savory Chicken Pot Pie with flaky homemade crust. This was pretty delish if I say so myself... Sometimes you just have to treat yourself with some comfort carbs and familiar flavors. What are your favorite foods to cook when it's chilly?
Please drop your gift cards to Palliative Care Op Shop. They will be taking all gift card donations for one more week only. Let’s remind ourselves this Christmas that we are community and that we belong to each other.

Freya has been asking me to take pictures of her everywhere we go, but today she wanted to take my picture. So here you go, a blurry documentation of my daily norm (minus the 3 year that is usually climbing on my back and head). 🎄🎄🎄

Verona: repleta de rincones que descubrir !!. Love it !!
Пью чай перед ноутом, а хочу пить какао и смотреть на Балтийское море. И чтобы там снова играла медленная инструментальная мелодия, а мы фоткали себя, окно, кружки на фоне воды. Чтобы расписанием на завтра было название какой-то далекой страны, а планом — нагуляться от души, купить открытку, захватить пару маффинов и обратно, на корабль.
⠀Можно вот так? Ну, пожалуйста.
• i love how the light in this room feels so different with a lick of white paint 💞this morning was spent rearranging and sorting and boy, did it feel good 🧺🧹we now also have a christmas tree in the front room 🎄 i’m keen to try coloured lights this year - which side do you sit on? #aconsideredhome#my_wintertale •
TRANSPARENCY & VULNERABILITY
Since I’ve been working on The Mojo Soul, I felt inspired beyond any limits, but as well overwhelmed by the “hustle hard” motto that any entrepreneur might tried to implement at one point. Trying to be everywhere and nowhere in the same time. Trying to pretend I know already who am I and what my project is exactly gonna be. Trying to build something way beyond what I can handle for now. Or even hiding behind a big “We” because feeling too small to present myself as “Me”
I felt lost a million times.
But now I made the choice to grow with soul.
Slowly but surely
For 2019, I took the decision to fully honour what I want to stand and fight for. The Mojo Soul is ready to write a new page of its story. To make it happen, promoting meaningful products telling inspiring stories that bring value to the world is now my main mission
I have nothing to prove, nothing to hide, nothing to loose. I only have the chance to give back to the world all the inspiration and the love I can nurture myself with everyday. As the beautiful soul @soul.spirit said on one of her latest post, “I am just a girl following her dreams hoping to inspire you to do the same”. Thank you for putting words on what I wasn’t full able to say.

Happy #apparelcaremonday ! Let's start with the basics of how we care for our clothes: how we wash them! The methods and tools that we use to wash our clothes have an immense impact on how they look and how long they will last. Ask anyone who has accidentally thrown a wool sweater into the machine, or the cliche red sock in with the load of whites - washing can make or break a garment.
What do you use to wash your clothes? The standard huge jug of detergent with the "mountain fresh" scent? If so, here's some food for thought: Detergents do not need to be liquid! Huge amounts of fossil fuels are wasted by shipping these jugs of water with dissolved detergent around the world! Liquid detergent has become the accepted norm, but it is not in any way better for our clothes, our washing machines, or the planet!
The ingredients that are in most main-stream detergents are full of extra suds-producing fillers, because people have come to associate bubbles with clean. In reality, the excess bubbles prevent the fibers in the fabrics from rubbing against each other, which is what cleans our clothes! People also associate certain artificial scents with "clean" clothes, when in fact, clean should smell .... well, like nothing. Added fragrances or "parfum" are undisclosed mixtures of scent chemicals, many of which are known to be harmful and are associated with allergies, respiratory problems, dermatitis, and potentially effect the reproductive system. YUCK!
I have been using Nellie's Laundry Soda for at least 4 years now. I use it for everything! I know there are specific detergents that are marketed to be used for delicates or darks or woolens, but I use this for EVERYTHING. And I. Wash. A. Lot. Of. Clothes. 5 people, 2 dogs, and a vintage clothing business in this house means LOTS of laundry.
This is 100% not an Advertisement for Nellie's - I just really love it. I buy mine from Costco online. Bonus: Nellie's is a Canadian company.

Un calendario dell’avvento che regala gioia ed emozione ogni giorno, un albero grandissimo ancora da finire, zero regalo fatti, una sola letterina scritta per Martino ( manca ancora Enea che ogni giorno cambia idea su cosa farsi portare da babbo natale) , profumo di arancia essiccata , il camino quasi sempre acceso e qualche addobbo qua e là.
Questo Natale ce la prendiamo con molta calma, ma non è con la calma che si assapora ancora di più ogni cosa ? .
🎄new recipe🎄as promised in my stories, I have the best ever olive oil peppermint crackle cookie recipe for you! Seriously easy to make and they just look so impressive! Plus the smell of cool choc mint floating through the house while these are baking are sure to get everyone in the Christmas spirit 💫😍 one batch makes around 50-60 cookies depending how large you roll your cookies. Happy baking guys! Mel x #naturallynutritious#frommylittlekitchen#peppermintcookies#christmasbaking
1 and 1/2 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (I use @bertollioliveoil_australia ‘gentile’)
115g dark chocolate, melted
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 tsp peppermint extract or 20 drops peppermint oil
2 and 3/4 cup plain flour
Icing sugar for rolling
Combine sugar, eggs, oil, chocolate, baking powder and peppermint extract in a stand mixer fitted with mixing paddle. Add in flour and combine again on low, scraping down as needed.
Place bowl into fridge for an hour or two until cold and dough is firm.
Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius fan-forced.
Roll dough into 3cm wide balls and coat them in icing sugar, dusting off excess. Place balls onto baking paper lined tray. You do NOT need to press them down.
Space cookie balls 3-4 cm apart on the tray, they will spread. Bake for 9 minutes. Cool slightly before transferring to cooling rack.
Repeat until dough is finished. Keep dough in fridge while the other batches are baking to keep it firm.
Xmas Day • We are having Christmas day at home this year, mainly because we feel the boys will cope better but I can’t deny I’m really looking forward to a more chilled out and simple day. No rushing around to leave the house, No reason for the boys to be overwhelmed. No huge mountain of new toys that will cause the boys sensory overload, just a few well thought out gifts. But most importantly a day spent together with family. Everyones ideal Christmas will be different, and of course thats perfectly normal. Unfortunately I think we’ve all felt that pressure to compete at times, I know I have. But for us Christmas now has to be more about keeping the boys calm and happy....Beauty in simplicity 🖤 #adayinthelifeofautism#dayinthelife#theweeklyhashtagchallenge#christmasday#autismawareness@littlepaperswan@edinburghwithkids
This evening I’m running around packing as I’m headed of on a press trip to Fuerteventura for the rest of the week. My instas are about to get sunny and warm (I hope!) at least until the weekend. Has anyone been to Fuerteventura before? I don’t have oodles of free time but if you have any recommendations please let me know!

Werbung | Mornings like these.. 🥞💭
Hi, I'm back! Maybe you didn't even noticed but I've been away for nearly the whole week because tbh I couldn't take it anymore.. I'm my own worst critic and as you probably know or (hopefully 😏) see I really try to maintain a "perfect" cohesive looking feed. I've been doing this for literally years now and it might not look like a lot of work but trust me it sometimes takes me hours to just figure out the position of two photos.. So now (Ok it's been a couple of weeks 😋) that I'm back from a few lovely days in the UK and with nearly 3000 new photos I should probably be all set for at least a few weeks, right? But I'm not, I took some of the most beautiful photos I've ever taken and I'm still not satisfied.. I still don't know exactly why I feel this way (trust me I thought everything through, twice.. haha) and I know it might seem silly but it really is my reality when it comes to this little app which just got to the point that I had to get a clear mind again! So here I am, still not sure how to satisfy my striving for perfection, still not knowing how to create the images I have in my head and as clueless as ever but determined to be better, to not let this get to my head anymore.. A big goal that is probably still far away but I feel like this is a first step. Any other content creators out there who feel this way? Or anyone else feeling this type of way in any parts of their life? And never forget that this is social media and if it seems like it's getting to much, just close the app, it really is not that important - something I have to remind myself of nearly every day..! Inspired and motivated, let's do this - to a productive and fullfiling 2019! | #morningslikethese#roominspo
I think the best thing to do on a dark and gloomy day is to grab a pile of blankets and books & enjoy all the coziness of a rainy december weekend 😌✨ #himmeli
Pine cones in a vintage wooden bowl, sitting on a stack of my handmade papers ..
Simplicity rules today ..
Have a lovely Sunday friends xo
Доброго понедельника вам!☕
С утра вставать с кровати совершенно не хочется, за окном еще ночь и организму все сложнее объяснять, что уже пора. Не слушается, каждый раз приходится расписывать все преимущества жизни независимо от одеяла.
Поэтому хочу вам пожелать, чтобы кофе было крепким, улыбки теплыми, а мысли позитивными.
А как иначе в понедельники?)

The most perfect latte from last week at @hotnumberscoffee 🍂☕️ This time of year brings me so much inspiration, does anyone else find that? As soon as December comes around I’m just in full on planning mode...writing all the lists of things I want to do and achieve next year, coming up with blog posts I want to write and pictures I want to take & planning all of the adventures I want to go on. Tell me I’m not the only one who is constantly planning! 😅 I hope you’re all having a lovely start to your week!
