I don't know about you, but since becoming a Mumma my skin-care routine has taken a bit of a back-seat to other things (like nappy changing and sleepless nights, for example) ;)
I donât know about you, but by the afternoon and early evening I am starting to fade and oftentimes cannot be bothered cooking. Sometimes Iâll whip up something fabulous but usually it takes a good 15 minute pep talk and a glass of vino to get me in the mood.
This is just a quick post today because its super duper easy and fast to make... I just used the hot oven I had cooked in and it worked a treat!
I was cutting up lemons for my Lavender Cordial recipe and noticed that the lemons I had showed HUGE amount of pith and zest.
Based on my research which I compiled in this blog post here, most store bought, over the counter, el-cheapo vitamin supplements are synthetically made (hence they have different names such as niacin and thiamine instead of B group vitamins).
Once upon a time, there was a very busy Eco Mum with hair half way down her back.
I have been having a hard time lately trying to find good quality, organic sour cream that has not been ultra-pasteurised at a reasonable price. To be honest, it’s virtually impossible! I paid $ 6.50 or 300mls of cream last week and nearly died.
I had never really realized, until recently, what homemaking actually meant.
I mean, sure, I was home a reasonable amount as I am a Work at Home Mum(WAHM) and I cooked and cleaned and stuff, but as for homemaking? Well, up till now, I thought thatâs all there was to it.
I often used to think that being The Eco Mum meant I have to NEVER throw anything away, never de-clutter or re-organise my home.
We live in a modest, 3 bedroom home with a combined lounge and dining room and a tight kitchen. We have plans to renovate to extend the space we have but they are far off yet. With Eco Dad aka Mr Bower Bird constantly bringing home âstuffâ that creates more clutter, our once comfortable home has become more of a hoarders paradise.
I love crocheting! My mother taught me as a little girl and I took to it then and have always enjoyed it. I find it easier and faster than knitting and it relaxes me.
Crochet is great if you have somewhere to go or you need to do it on the run because you only need one ball of yarn and one crochet hook â no big needles poking out of the top of your bag.
Have you ever at dinner, at home, with no lights?
Better yet, have you ever COOKED dinner at home with no lights?
I did this yesterday. It was lovely – albeit somewhat risky as I worked my way through a new prawn recipe.
