Here's a sneak peak at some homemade Christmas 🎁 I am working on for this year 🤩🙃 this year I am upping my game by experimenting with wood burning
.
I know it's early but I like to make most of my presents myself which is of course sometimes more time consuming. But it is super rewarding and much more personal.
Finally back home in my kitchen. Made sweet potato 🍠 gnocchi for dinner in a tomato, mushroom, and basil sauce (swipe left for final dish). Great way to use up leftover sweet potato 😉
.
Another tip: When I make things like homemade gnocchi or pasta I always try to make a double batch and put half in the freezer. It takes just a little extra time but makes sure I always have tasty homemade pantry staples around for a quick meal 😋

This is all the clothes I am packing for my 2 week trip to the 🇺🇸 minus my travel day outfit. I'm ✈️ only with hand luggage which is a good thing since it forces me to pack light and curbs the temptation to go on a shopping spree.
.
This is what I'm packing:
- 3 x 👕 tees
- 2 x🎽tanks
- 2 x 👖pants
- 1 x 🔺skirt
- 1x 👗dress
- 1x 🧥sweater
- 2 x 👟 shoes
- 1 x ☔ rain jacket
.
Travelling light is easier and really shows you how little stuff you actually need in your wardrobe to still be able to create many different outfits. How much do you pack when you travel?

When life gives you 🍋🍋🍋 dont just make lemonade but use every last bit of them 😂
.
Whenever I get my hands on organic lemons I make sure to grate the skin off before using them (after works too but is a little more tricky). Just spread the grated skin on a plate to dry to make you own lemon zest. Store it airtight for later use in cooking or baking.

I picked up these cloth panty liners from @ecofemme and can't wait to try them out 😆
.
The company making these beautiful pads not only uses completely non toxicand organic materials but also donates one pad for each pad you buy. What more could I ask for?
.
I'm hoping that this new addition to my cup will finally complete my completely reusable zero wast period kit. What do you use and what are your experiences with cloth pads?

My little garden box is coming along nicely considering that I've never had my own outdoor garden before😁 my kale looks about ready to eat, so I know.what I'm having tonight 😍😉
.
 I was so excited to finally have a box that now I'm not even sure what to plant in all this space... Especially since summer is approaching fast. Ideas?

I got a whole bag of 🍐🍐🍐 at #foodsharingcph  today. They were going to go to waste so I took them home instead.
Looking for suggestions on things to make with them because I don't want a single one to go to waste. Any good #recipes you can recommend? Maybe jam?

Yesterday's @foodsharingcph 'haul'. It was a great ☀️ day to rescue some produce. Everything on the picture was meant to go in the trash but was instead rescued and will feed us this week. In addition, almost everything I got was plastic free except for the broccoli and raspberries. That's what I call a win 🌈🍆🥕😊

My two part series on how to begin making kombucha is now up on the blog. If you've ever wanted to get into kombucha making at home check it out. Link to the first part is in my bio 😊
.
It is way better than store bought sodas (in my opinion at least), healthier and doesn't come in plastic.
.
And as usual I'd you're in the Copenhagen  area and would like to have a SCOBY let me know, I'm always happy to share the kombucha love 😁!

Did you know that denim has a big environmental impact? Producing it uses tons of water and chemicals. Not to mention the environmental pollution associated with its dying and/or stonewashing.
.
This is part of the reason why this year I decided to focus on my closet (amongst other things). I am currently almost half way through my year of purchasing only minimal clothing and if so secondhand or sustainable. Buying secondhand denim, like the jacket in the picture, is a great way to avoid adding extra strain on our planet. Plus it gives you that extra special feel of having a wardrobe that is just yours.
