The reason we love @albatross_sailing so much is because they have a great Take Back Program. When your blade reaches the end of its life, simply put it back in the manilla envelope. Once you run out of blades you can put that little envelope in to another envelope and send it back to their company to be recycled!

Ladies, let’s talk #primer. It is the first step to a truly great #makeup look! When applied first, all the rest of your makeup seems to glide on more easily for an even #complexion. Primers blur lines, conceal #blemishes and assist in keeping makeup where you put it. 🌼White Primer brightens and evens out #skin that’s dull or ruddy. Its hint of translucent white smoothes and illuminates, making your skin soft, bright, and ready for your dazzling look! 🌼Pink Primer has a hint of pink-violet that brings warmth to your complexion and counteracts any sallow undertones in the skin, making your face beautifully ready to create your radiant look! 🌼Peach Primer is great at canceling #hyperpigmentation – those patches of darker skin – and brings a lovely warmth to medium to tan skin. It creates a smooth, soft, glowing surface, ready for you to create your gorgeous look!

When living plastic free, the biggest challenge is definitely food. With the supermarkets leaving only the fruits & veges non wrapped with plastic ( and even that is changing for convenience of prepackaged or pre cut veges) we have no option than cooking from scratch. It’s time consuming yes, but at least you are in control of the ingredients you use. No added sugar, no artificial flavours, only goodness that you choose to put in your recipe. So what’s for diner tonight? 🥕

We're turning our #WeAreDiaperkind series around on our founders!
Next up is Marta Baumann and the charity she has chosen to raise money for is CAMBA (see below for more info). "When I decided to join Sarah and Liz in the Diaperkind venture I was in search of a change in life.
It was a fairly easy decision, taking into mind who my two new soon-to-be business partners were going to be!

With a decade of uncertainty ahead, Diaperkind gave me a solid foundation to mold my future and do what I truly love.
Leading operations, working closely with staff, and getting to know our service families on top of running and growing a business has provided me with a well rounded career.
In my spare time, I love traveling with my husband Jeremy, and we take every chance we get! I am also a certified yoga teacher (although I prefer to practice rather than teach). Diaperkind’s impact on our planet is incredible!
Think.. upwards of 1 million diapers PER YEAR kept out of landfills!I'm proud that we are able to offer a service to families who want to make personal choices to decrease their impact on our planet.

One of my favorite perks of running this business is being able to get involved in our community and support local causes. I choose CAMBA as my Shop For a Cause and we will be donating a percentage of this week's retail sales to their organization.

CAMBA takes a comprehensive approach to helping individuals, families and communities thrive by offering integrated programs in: Economic Development, Education & Youth Development, Family Support, Health, Housing, and Legal Services. They reach more than 45,000 New Yorkers each year, including 10,000 youth. More than half of their clients are immigrants and refugees from around the globe."

The official next step we took to eliminate waste...purchased a compost bin! It’s pretty amazing how less frequently we fill up a trash bag without food waste. 😳 working on our first batch of composted waste now. Hopefully have some updates soon! Have you ever composted? Give me your tips!

I 🖤 this verse from Proverbs. I was thinking of putting it up on my wall to help my kids remember to speak kindly to each other, but hello! Reality check! I could totally use the daily reminder too. This mama tends to get sharp and grumpy and prickly sometimes, and I don’t love it. We’re all a little overwhelmed with life sometimes - smalls and bigs alike. 🍯✨👌🏼😘

Apparently I needed a nap today 😴 and these two, a rainy day and my book knocked me right out. I’ve been struggling to recover from some heat exhaustion from a few days ago. I would like to say that I am good at listening to my body but sometimes drinking water instead of iced coffee is the last thing on my mind 🤷🏼‍♀️ Probably not my brightest idea. These two just sounded right when I decided if the kids were sleeping than so was I.
Stress Away is an amazing oil for creating a mellow environment (this will be coming with me to my classroom) and contains lavender, vanilla, cedarwood, copaiba, and ocotea.
R.C. is a lovely blend of spruce, cypress, and eucalyptus oils. It has many health benefits for people suffering from low energy, chronic pain, inflammation, sleep disorders, respiratory infections, weakened immune system, stress, anxiety, depression, and various skin conditions.

That was the marketing message that gave birth to a successful launch of the TV dinner and all the processed food that’s since followed. It's time for a reframe on our thinking. Yes, we're busier so we do need to be smart - especially double full-time working fams and large families, BUT we can do this and we can have smart outsources when we need them. Connecting to the food that fuels us also connects us to our families and sometimes, slowing down, sitting with the people we love over a simple 20-minute pan-fried 'something' and salad with good music on and candles lit is just the thing we need to start appreciating the simple things more often. How do you make from-scratch food a priority for you? I share loads of kitchen maximisation tips in the book but possibly my favourite is that everything that tastes good in leftovers form, gets double batched so that there ARE leftovers for lunches, following night re-inventions, lunchboxes... Work smarter in the kitchen, not harder and of course, have a couple of go to outsources and be easy on yourself those days when it ended up being Indian takeaway (so tasty!) x

Then, there was that one time I went off my paleo lifestyle for some vacay treats 😋

Speaking of, I wanted to share a little about my experience with being paleo for 30 days. Here’s the basic breakdown for anyone who’s curious:⠀
• I lost roughly around 10 lbs (and also did zero working out in this time other than the usual homeowner manual labor)⠀
• It was expensive to start but I found that once you have some of the foundational ingredients, all you’re really buying is produce and meat at the grocery store. It’s actually saved us some money AND time at the grocery store (which is one of my least favorite chores to do).⠀
• The meals I made were some of the BEST & some of the WORST foods I’ve eaten. It’s totally a bullseye, or a “didn’t even hit the board”⠀
• I feel like I have A LOT more energy and feel way less fatigued ⠀

I plan on sticking to it but giving myself some slight freedom in have a cheat here or there. Not everyday and maybe not even weekly, but at least giving myself a little grace if I’m at a campfire next to a lake and we’re making s’mores. I mean duh! You CANNOT pass on that. ⠀

I originally made this decision ONLY because I wanted to be healthier and know specifically what I was putting in my body. Not because of health reasons which is why many do change their diets to paleo. ⠀

All in all, it’s good, it works, and I’m really enjoying it. Let me know if anyone has any further questions on this, or tips on how to get started.

It's still #GiveSomethingAwayDay, y'all! If you're headed our way, clean out that closet and drop those pre-loved items in our donation bin. In case you didn't know: It gets emptied out by @housingworks and the proceeds from your donations help fuel their mission to provide life-saving health services, housing and spearhead social justice advocacy initiatives 👏🏾 Another great way to give something away: Find some friends whose closets you'd want to raid and organize a clothing swap. Or put together a little vintage sale, like our friends @sofiabib and @lynnkimdo today. Let us know in comments if you're interested in selling or swapping at the 'mat 🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️

Did you see the flash sale Young Living is offering through Monday? Get two Dew Drop diffusers and 13 oils for under $200. And if that wasn’t good enough, I’m throwing in TWO EXTRA OILS for a total of 15 oils.
Not sure what you’d do with two diffusers? Here are some ideas, because you are most certainly going to want to take advantage of this deal.... -Put one in your kitchen for happy morning vibes and one in your bedroom for sleepy nights - Keep one at home and bring one to the office, because everywhere should smell good. - Know someone having a birthday? Give the second one as a gift! You can even save it for Christmas! - Split the set with a roommate/friend!

In case you were wondering, have diffusers; in all our bedrooms, our living room/kitchen, my husbands office and a “mobile one” that we use in my home office, the playroom or outside!l

A Medi-Minute 🧘🏽‍♀️
Let’s talk about investments.. Self-Investments. How often do you take time out to improve your energy? How often do you breathe life into that which you know will bring you joy? This week, challenge yourself to be intentional with everything that you do and say. Strengthen your will to experience joy.

We are constantly speaking things into existence- both positive and negative. I challenge you to acknowledge your fears without feeding your energy to them. See both what you want and do not, and speak positivity into existence. This week, practice is focused thought. #meditation #plants #plantbased #minimalist #minimalism #blackwoman #blog #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #greenliving #love #selflove #holistic #holistichealth #etsyshop #model #photography #iphone #selfcare #womensupportwomen #supportblackowned #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #gogreen #abundance #healing #yoga #green #earth

Plastic free kitchen cleaning crew: soap shaker from @fairandsquaresoapery for gentle washes, bulk dish washing liquid from @goodforstore for more greasy ones & scrubbies to help me get the job done!

It amazes me at how beautiful these earth-friendly items are over those nasty supermarket things we used to buy. I also love that I value & appreciate each and every item here. They better appreciate me too 🙊

sunday’s are for thrifting!
shopping used is something B & i have both always done (we actually met many moons ago working at a thrift store together!). it’s better for the environment, your pocket (all this only cost $20), and so much fun to see all of the amazing things out there.
have any great #hamont thrift store recommendations? i’d love to hear them!

One of my biggest pieces of advice to someone starting out their strength training journey is to start with compound exercises, meaning exercises that work multiple muscle groups at once (squats, deadlifts, pull ups, dips, etc). This allows for your whole body to become engaged, providing for more functional movement and giving you the most bang for your buck.
-
Also, get over the intimidation or fear of judgment quickly. It’s only impairing your own ability. Nobody is focusing as closely on you as you are yourself. Opt for assistance or very low weight in exercises than not doing them at all, and focus on form! This is how one progresses.
-
No way could I do even a single tricep dip unassisted like I’m doing here just a few years ago. I started doing them on an assisted machine like this once a week, slowly lowering the assistance weight and eventually I built up to where I am now. I’m still building upon my abilities, dabbling in adding weight to my body currently.
-
This is typically how I start my chest & tricep workout: 4 sets of TRICEP DIPS via this pyramid rep scheme - 15, 12, 10, 8. 💪🏻 #likeagirl #likeavegan
