Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a good start into 2018. I was a bit sick, but that means things can only get better right. This post is going to be a little different from my regular posts as Jaimi from Pockets Full of Daisies nominated me for The Sunshine Blogger Award for my zero waste posts. (Check out my posts on what zero waste is, how to conquer the zero waste challenge, making your period zero waste, cutting down on plastic, and reusing packaging!) Thanks a lot, Jaimi!
The Sunshine Blogger award is given by bloggers to bloggers who inspire positivity and creativity in the blogging community.
Ever since I started working to reduce the waste I produce I have realized how difficult it is, especially here in Greece, to try to live more of a zero waste lifestyle.
I’ve mentioned before how composting is not actually something that is done here and that even separating trash seems a lot more complicated than in Germany, for example, where this has become the norm.
I started experimenting with different hair colors pretty early, at around twelve years old. I initially used semi-permanent colors, mainly in red and bluish shades. Towards the end of high school, I began using demi-permanent colors sticking to shades of red and brown. When I was in university and my younger siblings started getting the first white hairs, I decided to keep my natural hair color until I, too, would get my first white hairs, as I thought I might one day look back to the days where I still could still wear my natural hair color.
I just got back from another trip visiting family and friends back in Hamburg. The city gets a certain amount of tourists but is far from being as popular as Berlin, Amsterdam, or other cities, so there is not much information available for tourists. I already posted about the main things to see and do in Hamburg, and today I'll be helping you make the most of your stay in Germany’s second largest city with an overview of the neighborhoods you want to consider when booking accommodation.
If you saw my posts on minimalist packing for a week in Hamburg and Hamburg’s Speicherstadt, you know that we spent the first week of May in Hamburg visiting family and friends. Living in Hamburg, I never had to seek out vegan restaurants as I was still vegetarian, which is a lot easier with regards to eating out. My expectations were quite high as I had already found a multitude of options on HappyCow. Compared to my previous travels as a vegan (Corfu, Bucharest, Rome, Brussels), this trip was so much more filled with exciting vegan options.
Update: I recently went back for another trip in the beginning of December so I wanted to update this post with more details and another special vegan tip for Hamburg.
It’s been a while since I last made a favorites post so I thought I’d share my November favorites.
My recent trip to Ioannina was much more focused on nature than the other trips I’ve taken this year, and whenever I spend a lot of time in nature I am reminded of how spectacular this planet is. We don’t appreciate the planet we live on nearly enough, and that’s how we end up with things like climate change. Spending time outdoors serves as a good reminder of the necessity to do something to protect the world we live in. There are so many small things we can all do to reduce global waste.
With all the amazing vegan food I get to eat when I travel it would be easy to assume that being vegan is always simple and fun. While it’s not nearly as difficult as I used to think it would be there are still some challenges when you’re vegan.
The trilogy is complete. CunninLynguists put out the final part of their Rose Azura Njano series. Like many, I thought after The Rose EP and The Azura EP we would hear a Njano EP, but it turns out Deacon the Villain, Kno, and Natti surprised us by releasing their first full album in six years.
I frequently get asked where I get my clothes from so I wanted to make a brief post introducing my favorite fashion brands.
