Succ The Way To My Heart

Like, who doesn’t need dolphins and bunnies in their life?

Not to mention a Lucky Heart, since who has time for a boyfriend anyway amiright?

I’ve always been obsessed with Cacti and Succulents, but no one told me about the amazing variety?! Ok, you may only be able to get these ones overseas, or through the magical cute old nature man at  your local Sunday food market.

I pretty much NEED these in my life, no joke. It’s magic, serious.

Leather Creatures

I’m so glad that finally someone has made a valid excuse for adults to have soft toys. Like, enough with the judgement.

These cute as leather creatures created by Freda Cheung mix my love for leather and animation.

Plus you get to stick them on your wall, who doesn’t like animal cruelty free taxidermy right?

The Real Citrus Candle

The purest form of recycling, and so freaking tasty! Looks pretty neat too 😉 

I’ve found a cute lil DIY project here that shows you how make a less ‘artificial’ version of the citronella candle. Now I can finally put that 50 pack of tea-light candles waiting patiently in my cupboard to use!

White Strawberry

Heres a ‘Strawberry Kiss’ I’ll take any day.

The cutest video from Great Big Story tells a story of Yasuhito Techima, a Strawberry grower in Karatsu, Japan. But he aint no ordinary grower. 

White Strawberries, known as the “White Jewel” are a whole lot bigger and sweeter than the little red gem we indulge our lips upon. He’s the only one to grows these bad boys and they cost $40USD a packet. I totally wouldn’t mind spending my pocket money on that seed covered treasure!

Junk Free June

So it’s that time again, that’s right – JUNK FREE JUNE! I took part last year however I didn’t raise money for charity, so this time I’m going to do it properly!

The facts: Up to a third of all cancers are preventable through simple lifestyle changes including maintaining a healthy weight, eating a healthy diet, limiting alcohol and being active. Simple changes to your diet can have a big impact on your personal health.

 

A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can improve overall wellbeing and reduce the risk of a range of preventable chronic diseases, including some cancers. Being junk free is good for you! – taken from https://nz.junkfreejune.org/living-junk-free/

Now for me I don’t find the food part too challenging, it will be the exercise, well-being and you guessed it…. alcohol. The reason I’m doing this is because I’m the type of person that has so many ambitions, but so little time. LIES, we do have time, it’s just the way we choose to spend it that’s holding us back.

Day 1 of #junkfreejune – Deleted tinder #lol , started #yoga with #yogawithadriene best ever, set a month plan for the things I’m going to accomplish #goals and I’m excited, beautiful people aka @missphilly7 have already donated to support me and @cancersocietyauckland and I’ve convinced guys at work to join the bandwagon! HOWEVER it’s #friday tomorrow and that’s where the tough part starts but ima ace it!! #winning #icandothis#charity #healthylifestyle #wellbeing

You can also donate by clicking HERE and all proceeds go to Cancer Society Auckland.

Pom Pom Pandas

Times like these I realise how much of a kid I am at heart, or did I live in Japan in a previous life… either way, these are freckin adorable.

I never knew there were actual tools for making pom poms now?! I just resorted to the ole cardboard donut when I was young but hey looks like that’s next on my shopping list!

Thanks to Frankie Magazine, this tutorial here is now in my life and I will be eternally greatful. I will be making a Panda bunting this long weekend!

Goodbye social life!

Sydlexia – Unbreaking Broken Type

This has to be one of the coolest projects I’ve seen in a while, and it’s for a good cause too.

Sydlexia, also known as Dyslexia, have created a project to spread awareness of how hard dyslexia can be and how to understand it better. Making sense of what doesn’t make sense.

The posters they’ve created not only look cool, but they turn into an interactive tool to create the object.

They have then been placed around in public for people to rip off like note paper and fold away.

Such a cool way to bring attention to a not so obvious learning disorder. Have a geez at the Behance Project too.
