I (lav) 💜 this low waste, local soap option! Have you used a soap saver before? It’s basically a cotton pouch that you place your soap in to create a soap sponge 🛁. It provides mild exfoliation, allows you to hang your soap to dry, and prevents tiny soap scraps from slipping away down the drain. I went away on a work retreat this week, and this combo was great for travel! .

Repost from Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment: An Ozone Action Day has been issued for the Front Range. Be air quality aware, how do you’re actions impact ground level ozone?
Once again, thank you to everyone who commented and DMed me about my post yesterday. I'm encouraged and inspired to take bolder steps forward to do what I think is right. I'm starting to realise that starting up is really about a taking a huge leap of faith. After leaping, you don't actually hit ground bottom. Rather, you actually keep freefalling. When you are falling, you see things and people fly by you and there's always an opportunity to tap out and escape, but you will never see what happens because you never hit the bottom. Yes, hitting bottom is scary. You might shatter every bone in your body and be damaged forever or you might find the portal to a new understanding and level to life. Regardless, you will always walk with pride that you tried and gave it your fucking best. And that, could really just all anyone can ever ask for.
Today, we are giving another spoiler for our September box. We've chosen this ultra sensual ouvert knicker from the Curve range by the ever-inspiring @playfulpromises.
As a lingerie curator, I truly respect and appreciate any indie brand that makes inclusive sizing a priority. I'm definitely not shaming any brand that doesnt has inclusive sizing. Anyone who has even a little experience in bra-making will tell you that once you past DD, the whole dynamics of the bra change and it can be extremely challenging and pricey to acquire the parts to make full bust and plus size bras. Which is why I am so grateful and appreciative of brands like Playful Promises that give us full busted and plus sized girls tastefully presented and deliciously sensuous lingerie to celebrate our femininity.
And yes, we curate sensual lingerie for girls of all shapes and sizes. Did you expect any less? 😉

Hey. This is a nice place.
After a long and thoughtful break from social media, I have distanced myself from negative habits and people, and remembered what it's like to live a private life. Today I was confronted with the positive aspects of social media. From the @chickpeepspod
discussing the role of online activism in empowering people, to a motivating conversation with a yoga instructor about how youtube has made yoga more accessible, to the heartwarming ability of social media to return lost companion animals to their families.
Whatever forces are at play in the universe, by coincidence or otherwise, I've found myself being called back to community. A kinder world is grown by those who cultivate it with patience and persistence.

First, do no harm. And then, be kind. (To yourself, too)

Customising my own face cream to support my unique skins needs ... ahhhhh yes please!! 🤩👌💧🌟 Super light, hydrating, toning, smoothing & smells de-vine!! 👌💗🙏 I’ve added a few drops of each, stir & voila = Alice’s customized hydrating cream 😁😃👌💧
Small changes have a big impact ✔️ ❤️ do you plan on reading Erin Rhoads new book on - winning - at reducing waste? 😊
Why am I posting a picture of dead fish? Well, if you live in Sarasota or anywhere else in south Florida, you are very familiar with pictures like this. If you haven’t heard about Florida’s “red tide” problem, please do some research of your own and share what is happening with as many people as you can. The more people we have standing together for what is right, the more likely we are to bring change. Please do not watch the local or national news and call it research. The media shares only part of the story of red tide, and continues to spread the lie that it is a naturally occurring event and that there’s nothing we can do about it. Maybe they can get by with that with tourists or some who are new to Florida, but long term Floridians know that what is happening is a man made environmental disaster.
What we are seeing is the worsening of a naturally occurring event that is the result of many factors, including the destruction of a natural habitat, sugar farming, pollution, overbuilding, and the removal of environmental regulations. But please don’t call this red tide.
I don’t like posting negativity or ugliness. Most of the time, I try to focus on positive, uplifting things and I tend to look for the gifts in a situation. Right now, I’m struggling with staying positive when the things I love to do are all outdoors and the state I’ve called home for almost 30 years is suffering. I don’t know what is more upsetting- the media and corrupt politicians lying and doing nothing to solve the underlying problems, seeing dead fish, turtles, dolphins and manatees wash up on our beach, or people’s apathy about the crisis we are dealing with.
Please care enough to share!!! 😷🐠🐬☠️🏖🌊🌴😢🙏 📷 @djwcphoto

Did you know that composting your household food scraps reduces greenhouse gases?
When food scraps go to landfill, the unnatural environment makes it impossible for them to break down properly thus producing methane.💀
Composting improves the quality and nutrients of soil. It's easy, cheap and very beneficial to your garden and our Earth. 🌱

Frankreich erklärt der Verschmutzung durch Plastikmüll den Krieg
Frankreich fördert nun Plastik-Recycling. Demnach sollen Verpackungen aus nicht recycelbarem Plastik höher versteuert werden. Das französische Umweltministerium will so eine Veränderung bei der Verwendung von Verpackungen aus Plastik erreichen. Ziel ist es, bis 2025 landesweit nur noch Verpackungen aus wiederverwertbarem Plastik zu verwenden, sodass nicht-recycelbares Plastik künftig vom Markt verdrängt wird.

Hump day! Many thanks to everyone who took time to comment and DMed me encouraging messages to response to my post yesterday! Happily, today things went much better and we are closer to working out happy arrangements with a few new vendors.
I've been having long talks with my trusted partner and I was both surprised and happy at the advice he gave me. Like what I shared last week, I actually find great joy in curating INDIVIDUAL experiences for each of my subcribers, so it makes more sense for me to gradually move away from the traditional subscription box model where the subscriber subscribes in hopes of receiving a box of products that cost less than retail. Subscription boxes manage to get products for a percentage off retail because they make bulk orders, but the intimate nature of lingerie means that Ouverte struggles with this model. Lingerie and cup sizes are not static, so even if a piece can be made according to your measurements, it does not mean it will lift and separate breasts well. Too often, I find myself stuck between trying to make business sense and wanting to give the very best to my subscribers. After talking with my partner, I've decided to forgo the traditional subscription box model and focus on curating lingerie purely from a fit perspective. While this means that our margins become dramatically leaner, I will be much happier and excited to curate for all of you.
Our subscription will be closed after today, but you can always still buy a custom gift box from us. Our custom boxes start from $145 with free international shipping. In each custom box, you will receive a tempting lingerie set from ethical and independent brands along with other fantastic products to seduce, to adorn, to eat, to sip, to smell, and to pamper yourself or a gorgeous woman with. DM us today and receive an exclusive discount for your first box!
Hubby had a day off work today so we decided to make the most of the day with only one child and head to the water.
We spent the day driving around the mountains and stopped here to splash around for a bit and say hi to the local, very friendly, ducks.
As we promote cleaner waterways,using our blog as a platform for this is a wonderful thing to be a part of.
We have some news coming up for the blog that we will be excited to share with you very soon too.
Hope your Wednesday humpday was awesome!
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone 😃
Un ejemplo perfecto del buceo sostenible y solidario que promovemos desde Dive4Help. Angel, Pilar, Bettina y Eva, estuvieron con nosotros en Malapascua, Participaron en las actividades con los niños y nos ayudaron en otras facetas del proyecto. No pudieron resistirse a probar el buceo...Angel y Pilar se fueron con un bautizo de buceo...y esperamos que en un futuro con más tiempo, se decidan a seguir explorando el océano. Bettina y Eva se han sacado el curso completo de open water y ahora aman el Oceano...Fue un placer tenerles con nosotros y esperamos verles de nuevo por aqui. Un abrazo y muchisimas gracias por todo!!! A perfect example of sustainable and solidary diving as that one that we promote in Dive4Help. Angel, Pilar, Betina and Eva, were with us at Malapascua Island, they participated in the activities with the children and helped us in other facets of the project. They could not resist to try diving... Angel and Pilar left with a DSD... and with more, we hope that in the future they will decide to continue exploring the ocean. Betina and Eva have taken out the full course of OW and now they love the Ocean...It was a pleasure to have you with us and we hope to see you again here. A big hug and thank you very much for everything!

I’ve been quarantined to my bedroom since Sunday ... I’ve snuck out to watch some Netflix while the house is empty ... covering my unseen tracks 😁👌💧💃🏻
Pontos de vista são respeitáveis, mas ignorância não.
Uns dizem gostar de prédios, cidades, construções etc... Esses mesmos não se importam com árvores que precisam ser derrubadas para construir vossos luxos, mas nas férias ... Ahh as férias... Eles gostam de seguir para praias, montanhas, lugares paradisíacos, com muita sombra e água fresca para tirarem aquelas "selfes fakes" e pagar de pessoas merecedoras de féeeeerias, mas estão lá sujando os lugares e consumindo ao máximo tudo que puderem e não moveram uma palha para nada que pudesse fazer a diferença, tendo o respeito devido pela natureza, simplesmente se acham dignos de merecer porque seus egos são tão gigantes que poderia engolir uma galáxia inteira.
Aí voltam pra cidade e continuam a não separar o lixo, jogar bituca de cigarro no chão e desejam que tudo exista a seu bel prazer.
Cansei da ignorância humana... Prefiro conversar com os animais, eles me entendem.
