5 months into no new clothes for a year

I haven't updated you for a while on the no new clothes for a year. Pre and during Christmas I was too busy to even considered that shopping for new clothes would be the thing to do.  I didn't miss any new outfits either, there was apparently enough Christmas outfits in my closet.

However, what I did get second-hand was a few more warm jumpers and I haven't regretted it! They are awesome and the best in winter to keep you warm. I had to do some stiches in all of my finds but after that they were as good as new.

Picture from here. Good post and tips on how to buy less.

Change the World Wednesday challenge is to go outside and find something you love. I took the easy way out and documented the birds from the window, mostly because they fly away when we go outside. When we are lucky we also see some squirrels from the window and a few times we have also seen a bunny and once a fox.

Being outdoors we also spot wildlife sometimes but it's a bit more difficult (especially with the dog around). Me and our dog like to look out the window, we are super lucky to have the forest just outside.

Just Eat It

Another documentary about Food Waste, which is a subject I care about a lot.

Just Eat It - A food waste story (Official Trailer) from Grant Baldwin on Vimeo.

Don't waste your food-Just Eat It! (Even though I realize that a lot of the food waste actually happens before the food even reach the customers which also this documentary seem to highlight).

30 days of Yoga with Adrienne

A friend pointed out to me that Yoga with Adriene on YouTube is doing one yoga video per day for 30 days and it's free. So if you are stuck in your practice and need some inspiration, this might be it!

I have done some of the videos every now and then as I also follow my own practice, however, it is a good channel to go to when I have no other practice planned for the day.

Today I'm doing day 9;

A bit of yoga humor

Nothing is to be taken too seriously, not even yoga.

Do you do yoga? What do you like/dislike about yoga? Do you recognize something from the parodies?

Why I live green? (or try to)

It's been a while ago since last time I updated something on the Change the World Wednesday challenges but here comes a post on this week's challenge. The challenge is to post a photo on why you live green. I know this is not a photo but I came to think about this video. For me the argument is he presents in the video holds. What do you think?

I will also post a photo though, because another reason is that I simply really like nature and I don't really see any reason to why we would violate it.

Keep Calm

So life always has a way of surprising you and twist and turn in funny and not so funny ways. Right now we have lay-offs at work, which is nice to have "vacation" (unpaid though!) but the financial bit is of course a tiny bit worrying. Working less is ok (that I have written about before), but not working at all is a different story.

Well, I took the time to update a page on this blog "about me" in case the rigth person would happen to end up on this blog at the right moment, in that case contact me, please! I also added my pinterest and instagram accounts in the side-bar. At the same time I can share with you now that I have started my 200h yoga teacher training, woohaa! That was a bit scary in the beginning but then now when the course is on it's way it is so much fun and I respect my teacher so much! I really hope that one day I have the opportunity to share what I am learning now.

In any case, when I feel down about the uncertain future I take a look at my pinterest inspiration board and I feel so much better. Perhaps it is meant to be this way and perhaps it will lead to something so much better.

The good thing if I have a lot of more free time I will try to update this blog a bit more. Please let me know what you'd like to read about!

Permaculture course x 2

You might remember that I did a permaculture course in summer. If you are into gardening and want to go to a course yourself there is now two opportunities in Finland in spring.

In Helsinki in March and in Tampere in April. I do recommend it if you are new to permaculture and want to know the basics! The courses are in Finnish.

Came across this short documentary and had to share it with you.

I know I've been really, really bad at bloggin lately, but life happens in the meantime.
