How to Make Christmas Eve Boxes

Last year I decided to make Christmas Eve boxes for the kiddies. I had heard of others doing it and thought it was a lovely idea so decided to replicate it and introduce it as a new Christmas tradition in our house. We always have a house full at Christmas so naturally the kids are pretty wound up, I thought the boxes might give them something to focus on before bedtime on Christmas Eve.  Continue reading “How to Make Christmas Eve Boxes”

I would live in a yurt if I could convince the other half that it was a good idea. So far he’s not convinced, not even a tiny bit but I’m hoping to wear him down eventually.  Continue reading “Yurt Wedding Devon with Yurts for Life”

Zero Waste Home: The Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Life – Book Review

Zero waste is a concept that I have become increasingly interested in. After studying environmental and energy studies at university it became very clear that recycling is not the answer! The answer is to create less waste in the first place. If we have less waste to start with there is less waste to have to deal with. It’s quite simple when you stop to think about it.  Continue reading “Zero Waste Home: The Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Life – Book Review”
