The shift is subtle, until we’re suddenly acutely aware: Crumpled leaves litter the ground, school buses begin their early morning rumble, and apples, squash, and dark leafy greens start their farmer’s market takeover. Read more »

I love the lipstick shades that comes with Autumn. It's pretty much the only colours I own! I sadly can't pull off a top bun so I restrict myself to only wearing it in doors, I will be doing a lot of plaiting though! As for the water, I absolutely agree with this. You know what baffles me? Hearing people say they don't like the taste of water. A big DOH from Homer Simpson here. I find as well instead of water carrying around lemon water (freshly squeezed lemon with water) is a great pick me up and if anything MORE benefial to the skin and insides. xx

Stoked about this recipe! In India, if you buy cut pineapple from a stall the vendor always puts black salt and sometimes chili on it, and it's pretty addictive.

I love mixing fruits with savory ingredients! In fact, I almost prefer it. I've put garam masala on watermelon before, and it was amazing. This sounds really yummy - might try grilling it with the chili powder as well! <3 dani

Post image for How to Pack The Perfect Carry On Bag

I’ve been traveling since before my memory even serves. Road trips and flights were a regular thing in my family, and for a while, a bag sat at the foot of my bed, always half-packed or half-unpacked, depending on how you looked at it. Read more »

Might be a little paranoid, but I have always had a versatile outfit stashed in my carry on - not just a set of intimates (though that's a great idea). Even if it's just an extra tee or small dress and I wore jeans/leggings on the plane. That way things can be changed up! Haven't lost my luggage, but I know it will happen one day.

Great list, I too am a frequent flyer! I'd also add moisturizer/lipbalm to that list because man can your skin feel dry in the middle of a 14-hr flight. I always pack a few snacks + a sweet treat for that craving you know you're going to get at some point, and You must invest in a bag with a sturdy strap! Carrying my camera + laptop gets so heavy but is always a must. (I just don't trust putting them in my checked luggage...) xx

The photos are gorgeous! Reading this post has made me really, really, really want to go back to Amsterdam! I miss it so much! Like you, I didn't expect to love the place so much and never want to leave. It's a wonderful city, so vibrant and when in the heck did people become so nice!? I can't wait to go back as I am saving up to go again next year. My heart fills with joy whenever I talk about Amsterdam. It really it beautiful. Thank you for sharing! I'm now reliving memories. xx

Post image for The Benefits Of Eating Fossils

It’s true: I eat fossils every day.

I know you’re thinking, “Brigette. Girl. What are you talking about.” Allow me to introduce you to a little gold mine known as diatomaceous earth. Read more »

Tamie -Aug 27, 2014, 7:40AM
I live me some fossils too. I got into it years ago from a Blessed Herbs bowel cleanse and I saw it work its (sometimes startling) magic. That was DE and psyllium husk which is the fiber to push it out, since DE alOne can be constipating. Since then I have used the bottles kind you can find on amazon... For upset stomach and to throw in the bath for a clay detox.

I've sprinkled this on carpeting before, to help with a flea infestation. I love that it's a (highly effective) natural alternative to those chemical bug bombs that most people use for fleas in their home. And totally safe for pets! love it. I never knew it was edible, though. <3 dani

Post image for Bananas + Oats: Meet The Easiest Cookies You’ll Ever Make

Bananas. They’re one of those foods that we often take for granted, always there in the fruit bowl next to the apples, turning brown more quickly than I would prefer. Read more »

Jess -Aug 27, 2014, 4:39AM
These look amazing! I am going to be making them tonight! As a quick question does anyone know or guestimate how many calories a cookie would be? Thanks!

Such do-able idea! Just curious though, does it attracts ants?
Alexandra -Aug 26, 2014, 1:21PM
So simple - who knew! I love the way these look as well, and had no idea about the uses of sea salt in eliminating odors. I love the photography here and the contrast between the orange and blue. Warm Regards, Alexandra

“Don’t Stumble Over Something Behind You.” Read more »

Maya -Aug 26, 2014, 8:26PM
I have to say that this quote really resonates with me, especially in light of some recent life events. My fiancé and I recently moved. The move went well, but we ended up having a bit of a disagreement with the neighbors where they accused us of doing something something that we didn't. This really, really bothered me and although things are better, it has made it a lot tougher to develop a relationship with our neighbors. Luckily my fiancé really took the initiative to help move us past this event.
Dee -Aug 25, 2014, 9:13PM
This is such a great saying to focus on for the week ahead. I agree that "There’s no need to waste energy and feelings on problems that are already behind you. If it’s fixed, let it be fixed." I think this also applies to things that you have no control over. DW |
