OUR {UN}BLOG

This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

Thinking About The Future

Live in the moment, they say. Enjoy the present, they say. 

But, being grateful in the here and now, and living in the moment isn’t about doing whatever you want, whenever you want to do it, without responsibility and accountability. It’s about understanding that we are either part of growing issues, or part of healing and solutions… it’s about savouring the moments when we are actually living them. It’s about doing meaningful work, being fully present when hugging a friend, soaking up the sunset without worrying about tomorrow or next week, and stepping outside in the morning with the intention of doing better.

Not all Sunscreen is Created Equal

Our skin is our largest organ, so, it’s important that we take care of it at every age, and when out in the sun, we encourage you to only use products that fully disclose their ingredients – good, organic, clean ingredients. Sunscreen protects us from the sun’s rays, both from short term burns and longer term damage. (more…)

Spring Cleaning

We go to great lengths to keep our homes clean, as we should. It’s where we raise our families, where we gather with friends, where we cook and eat, where we rest and unwind, and so much more. When we take good care of our home environment, it takes good care of us.

But… there is so much more that we can clean up… and it’s worth it!

Not All T-Shirts are Created Equal

Are You On The Wrong Bus?

Years ago while reading Grub (an awesome book filled with ideas for an urban organic kitchen), I was introduced to, and instantly connected with, the Wrong Bus Syndrome by Wangari Maathai, a 2004 Nobel Peace Prize winner. It’s a simple-yet-powerful analogy for how and why we find ourselves headed in the wrong direction. While Maathai writes about The Wrong Bus Syndrome in her book The Challenge for Africa, it has so many applications for each and every one of our lives, our work, for our communities, our food industry, the way we treat the planet, and much more.

Glyphosate: What you don’t know can harm you.

Food is a sensitive issue… it is highly personal. I am not a scientist, nor am I a farmer… I am not a bioengineer or a food journalist… I am not a nutritionist or a dietician, and I am not a doctor.
