- OverturnTheTablesFeb 27, 2022Growing food at homeNow I am not a crazy gardener, I have very little skill, but I try my best. I have orchids, succulants, spikey plants, soft plants, lavender and other smelly plants, pretty plants like lilly pillies, ugly plants with thorns, difficult plants like pumpkin and easy plants like tomato. And lots of weeds. Like a lot of weeds. I also like fruit trees and native trees. I have learnt a lot from the internet. I try to replant from what I eat where I can as well. And I love it when people give me plants, and when I can give away plants.Like
- OverturnTheTablesFeb 27, 2022Divesting from Fossil FuelsI cannot stress this enough. Your money talks! When we invest in something we are sending a message that we value that product. Same goes with our banking, our insurance, our superannuation and our utilities. These decisions can't be taken lightly and proper financial advice needs to be sought. But I cannot promote this website enough! https://www.marketforces.org.au/ To help you out, some friends of mine that volunteer for ARRCC have been running workshops on this for a while now. You should check them out. https://www.arrcc.org.au/go_fossil_free_individual To find out more utilities, you might also want to check this list from greenpeace. https://www.greenelectricityguide.org.au/ And when you are making any other purchase decision, you might like to check out this website and app. https://www.ethical.org.au/3.4.2/
- OverturnTheTablesDec 07, 2020DIY and recipesI don't pamper myself much. And in the past I have always had bad experiences with face masks because I feel like they are burning my skin off. May be that is just how they are meant to feel. Can't say I'm a fan. But because my acne can get quite bad, I do use them sometimes. There are a few main ingredients that I use. Bentonite clay This I get refilled at Biome in the city or at indooroppilly. Clay masks don't burn until you add a bit of acid. Enter apple cider vinegar Now in any of the DIY recipes that I've found for masks, I always halve the amount of vinegar because my face just can't handle it. I've also added honey in the past to reduce the impact. And lavender to help with redness as well. I generally go for equal parts vinegar and bentonite clay. And add a few drops of lavender, and some water and honey until I get the consistency I want.
