I have been quite productive today. I went for 1hour walk around the river at 8.30. Later I just had some breakfast, watched a few YouTube videos, finished washing up all the clothes. Around 13.00 I got a phone call from my boyfriend. He is having a good time with his dad and brother in Santiago, Chile at the moment. After the phone call I made Lunch, so I ended up making Vegan mushroom risotto. Around 15.00 I went to the gym for one hour. I know I said for 2 hours but, I just couldn't, haha. I will be going back early in the morning before work.
I planted some wild strawberry seeds for like a week ago, and seeing it growing is really fascinating! I got really in to plants and growing your own fruits, herbs and vegetables! I will start to grow spinach and lots of herbs as well. I found a bunch of organic seeds which is so much better! I can't wait until some wild strawberries starts to grow. xxx
Good morning. Hope you are doing well! I am still a bit tired. I was awake until past midnight. I was busy watching the new film of Underworld (which was good btw).
Anyways! I stumble across this video this morning, and I had to share it! I think this is brilliant. this is a green newspaper from Japan that got build in seeds. when you have finished reading, tear a few pieces off and plant it! later it will become a pretty flower or a plant. I wish we here in Sweden could take action and do this as well. I think this is absolutely brilliant.

I stumble upon this video the other day. I found this absolutely amazing! Whenever I get my own place, I will def get one of these. No GMO's!
I am really into textiles, which is something I'd like to develop further. I just got a touch on textiles when I made my final collection at University. As more I am growing fond of the issues for the environment, I'd like to create sustainable textiles.
I am just creating ideas in my sketchbook at the moment, but soon as I start do be more hands on with fabrics, I will post my developments here on my blog.

I'd like to give a tip about a great brand called "Matt & Nat".
The idea behind MAT(T)ERIAL and NATURE originally came to life in 1995, in Montreal. They're passionate and in awe of the world that surrounds us. Being inspired by MAT(T)erial and NATure means exploring the synergy between the two, the reflection of one on the other.
Each season, they continue to explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Over the years, they’ve been experimenting with different recycled materials such as recycled nylons, cardboard, rubber and cork. Since 2007, they’ve been committed to using linings only made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. They have also recently introduced recycled bicycle tires to their collections. Not to mention they DO NOT use real leather in their collections!
Time to declutter your wardrobe!
Here is a 4-pile strategy which will help you to minimize your wardrobe in the best possible way if you don't know where to start.
I love these items. They fit me well, and I wear them frequently: KEEP.
I want to keep these, but I don't know why
These items doesn't fit me or my style: DONATE
These items aren't in good condition: THROW AWAY
Gets boxed up and put in the back of your closet for 30 days
Gets boxed up and put in your car to donate before you have time to rethink it
Goes to the trash
IF YOU DON'T MISS ANYTHING IN THE BOX FROM PILE 2 AFTER 30 DAYS: DO NOT OPEN IT, DONATE IT!
- Refuse, and therefore help stop the madness of the free-pen / free-pencil give-aways.
- Use refillable pens, piston fountain pens, mechanical pencils, refillable white board markers.
- Start your personal junk mail war, cancel your phone directories, and sign up for electronic bills and statements.
- Reuse single-side printed paper for printing or making notepads held by a metal clip, reuse junk mail response envelopes and when buying new paper, choose recycled and packaged in paper.
- Ditch the trash can, strive to use your compost and recycling bins exclusively.
- Use, Reuse and Request recyclable paper packing material when shipping (incl. paper tape), print postage and addresses directly on your envelopes, use surface mail, use a return address stamp instead of stickers.
- Reuse paper clips (available in bulk) instead of staples, or a staple-free stapler.
- Use your library to read business magazines and books, sell your books or donate them to your library for other people to enjoy.
- Use memory sticks and external drives instead of CD’s.
- YOU CAN ALSO… use a power strip on your equipment, refill your printer cartridges, make paper with double-side printed paper, take packing material that you receive to your local shipping center for reuse…
