Life has slowed down alot for me over the last 6 weeks.
I'm working alot less to make $$. I haven't been doing much study and my movement practice has been bang for buck with time.
In return I have been able to appreciate 5 seasons of a show I had never seen, watched the most TV I have in 10 years, make every meal at home and see my boyfriend more hours than in the 1year we have spent together.
And I would not change it for anything in this world.

Favorite drink of the week 🍓: strawberry mint infused water 💣 sooooooo goooooood.
our favorite coffee stop ☆ small businesses have become a passion of ours ever since researching the impact they have on the community. whether it’s coffee, clothing, housing items, groceries, etc., make it a point to start shopping locally + not at commercial/corporate businesses! you’ll be doing the world a great service & you meet the nicest people along the way.
I do love a good Instagram post (who doesn’t!). But, at the same time, we all know it’s a little crafted to look good.
Nothing wrong with that (especially if you like pouting and painted eyebrows) but every now and then I like to share something that’s not going so well!
So here’s today’s.
A few days ago the brakes on my #campervan
started leaking. Niche gut and cue a week-long-mission of sourcing parts, waiting for the rain to stop, snapping off rusty bolts, and fixing it myself.
Es voila! ‘Twas a painful job, but there’s something satisfying (and cheaper) about fixing it yourself.... #HappyFriday #adventuresinhappiness #vanlife #realitycheck
These are the books I'll be reading this month. I used to be extra germaphobic ( it's still pretty bad but I've gotten a tad better) so I would buy any book I wanted to read new rather than buying used or utilizing the library. But I've gotten really into utilizing my local library. I go at least twice a week and either check out books or movies and let my kiddos run around in the kid area.
Anyway, I'm delving a bit more into nutrition as well as feminist tales of badass women. Also checked out some vegan cookbooks, self help books, and astrology books. I frequently read YA books as well so I'm reading The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein on the side to get in the halloween mood ( I havent gotten my kids costumes yet 😱). I'm thinking about just making some nut bark or peanut butter cups with bulk items. Or maybe trick or treating and donating the candy to the drive for the troops that happens yearly. •
I got my oldest a yumbox for school, my kiddos eat primarily vegetarian ( we are slowly working on converting) but I pack him vegan lunches so I'll definitely be posting his packed lunches more! Anyway have a great friday guys!!! And if you have any quick and easy vegan lunch ideas for kiddos please send them my way ♡♡♡

Cherry up 🍒 your day! It is so cool to have some twists in our usual outfits. ⠀
As most of you know I am a shirt with jeans kind of person, preferring the colours black, gray and white. And what you don’t know is that I like to have more of the pieces that fit me well. I have this shirt in 4 versions, this helps me to feel myself confident wearing the thing I really like to wear, and also staying consistent to the “dori style”. Of course having 4 of this doesn’t effect my minimal wardrobe negatively, they are core part of it and I wear them multiple times in a month. ⠀
Dobd fel a napod egy kis cseresznyével 🍒! Szeretek egy kis csavart vinni az öltözékembe. ⠀
A legtöbben tudjátok, hogy én egy blúz farmerral típúsú ember vagyok, aki a fekete, szürke és fehér színeket részesíti előnyben. Azt kevesebben tudjátok, hogy szeretek többet megvenni azokból a dolgokból, amik jól állnak. Ebből a blúzból 4 változatom van, ami segít mindig magabiztosnak éreznem magam, mivel többször is azt hordhatom, amit szeretek, és abban is segít, hogy következetes maradjak a “dóri stílushoz”. Természetesen az, hogy 4 darab van belőle nem érinti negatívan a kapszulagardróbomat, ezek szerves részei annak, és többször viselem őket egy hónapban.
We are definitely in the "work hard" phase of our adventure. We are both working full time as well as working on the bus conversion every chance we get. Date night have now turned into locking ourselves in Wanda and sanding and painting away. To be honest, I don't mind it one bit. I feel like I will actually miss this phase of our adventure a bit.
We are both in hustle mode hoping that it will all pay off in the next few months. Nothing worth having comes easy after all. •

Die 3 neuen Kleidungsstücke. Ob sie noch dieses Jahr bei mir einziehen werden? Ich denke nicht. Für alle, die nicht wissen worum es geht: Ich habe mir Anfang des Jahres vorgenommen nur 3 neue Teile im Jahr 2018 zu kaufen. Aber ich brauche eigentlich gar nichts mehr. Anfang des Jahres war ich mir zu 100% sicher, dass ich mir eine neue schwarze Bundfaltenhose und schwarze Lackschuhe kaufen werde. Wieso ich diese Dinge doch nicht kaufen werde? Weil ich ähnliches schon im Kleiderschrank habe. Ich habe mich in den letzten Monaten in alte Teile irgendwie nochmal neu verliebt und jetzt kommen meine alten Schuhe bald zum Schuhmacher. 🙏🏼❤️ Lasst uns nicht ständig immer und immer wieder neue Teile kaufen. Pflegt altes und verliebt Euch neu in das, was ihr schon habt. Und wenn es doch was neues wird, denk dran: Buy less, choose well, make it last. 🙏🏼❤️ Achso, und bitte auch nur faires! 💪🏼☺️❤️

As a child, I used to spend hours looking at the cloud in the sky. I remember taking photos of the clouds using those instant 24 frame film cameras (does anyone remember those?) And when the photos were developed I was excited. But when my dad saw it, he would say, “Who wasted film taking photos of the sky?” 😂😂😂
I mean who doesn’t love these beautiful colors and interesting shapes that just float in the air?!
Were you like me? Do you remember something from your childhood that you did but you were teased or scolded for? I’d love to hear your stories!!
Someone 😶 accidentally left the pasture gate open last night and the sheep escaped 😑 Which I realized while cooking dinner, when I looked out the window and saw them having a party in our neighbor’s pasture. The grass was definitely greener on the other side and now they know it and have been telling me all about it #escapees #alwaysclosethegate #goodtimes
I like to think fostering and parenting a large # of kids taught me something, so I wanted to share one of my greatest life hacks about socks. •
Everyone has their own type of socks and that’s all the socks they have, which makes sock sorting (and having to pair them isn’t even a thing in our house) SO EASY! •
Damien has long socks because he wears ankle braces, Ares has the white socks, Carson has plain black ankle socks, and I have black ankle socks with pink Hanes on them. 👌🏽
You should try it!
*NEW BLOG* Clear desk or cluttered? Do you feel that your work space has an effect on your productivity? ⠀
In my latest post I share some quick and easy tips to organise your desk so that when you sit down you can get straight to work. Imagine no more sifting through piles of papers and forgetting what you need to do, just an energising environment in which to be more creative. Click on the link in my bio to read on...⠀
What do you think guys? Should I get him the bat? I think we found a booth yesterday that was Wesley's happy place. Someone the other day asked me how I address not having too many kids toys and my philosophy is that if they absolutely love it and it will help them to grow and thrive for countless hours in the future than it's a winner. Sometimes I strike out but I have a feeling this bat will be a home run (puns intended 😆). ❤ Now to sneak out and buy it for Christmas without the kids noticing....
Dutch Design Week
We've arrived at Dutch Design Week and are busy setting up our stand ready for the big launch tomorrow.

We can't wait to show off our unique eco homewares including our iconic Vase No.8 and give you a sneak preview of a new piece of furniture in the pipeline.
Love you more than those bitches before.
Not only are house plants oh so pretty, they actually increase the quality of your air.
How? Well, when you breathe, your body takes in oxygen and releases carbon dioxide. Adding plants to interior space increases oxygen + energy levels 🌿🙌🏼✌🏼
How amazing is that? Where's your favourite place to put gorgeous house plants? 📸: @nickginsburg #HousePlantsOfInstagram

•AQUA AURA• 40+ pieces available www.wildhealing.com.au ~ Layby available!! Though not created through a natural process, the synergy of the quartz and gold combine to bring about a new crystal of intense energy and power. Aqua Aura can enhance communications of all kinds. It can help one both speak and see the truth.
Aqua aura is created in a vacuum chamber from quartz crystals and gold vapour by vapour deposition. The quartz is heated to 871 °C (1600 °F) in a vacuum, and then gold vapor is added to the chamber. The gold atoms fuse to the crystal's surface, which gives the crystal an iridescent metallic sheen.
Please note that the colour may be a bit different due to computer/phone screens being different.

Spring time is here so a veggie garden can be a good idea to celebrate it!
Doesn’t need to be a big project.
It is great fun.
Doesn’t take too much space.
Most important, it needs to have easy access so everyone can help looking after it.
We made our own from recycled palettes :
600h * 1200l * 600w (mm).
Our children love eating more green after this! 💛🌼✨
Is it just us or do flowers just immediately brighten up a space?
When looking at this picture, we are almost immediately at peace ✌
I mean when you think about it, don't you normally bring people flowers when they are recovering? It's because flowers bring people a sense of calmness and reduce their anxiety. The more you know 😉
New furniture and rearranging my home/ getting rid of clutter and living what I’d like to think as a minimal lifestyle makes me feel so calm, relaxed and clear headed. I love taking something used or old from someone and making it apart of my serenity. Its new to me. And I love it. #catapproved #livingroomaesthetic #minimalliving
I couldn’t find this little guy earlier in the midst of unpacking more boxes. I come around the corner and there he is just sitting on his sisters bed chatting away like some kind of big boy. He loves sharing a room with her and having a nice bright space to play! I can’t wait to show you guys their room when it’s all set up! Drastically downsizing our space is the best thing we have ever done!
Day 238 of 365. Ride the San Francisco Cable Car 🚂! Other than the famous Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco is well known for their cable car rides! Tbh, I didn’t ride it, just kinda hopped on to take a quick picture for the gram, lol, and continued to shop! I’m sure the ride must be fun going through the steep hills throughout the city 🌆. Whats New: Check out my new podcast, Episode 2: How to control cravings and maintain a healthy path! It’s called Whole Pods and listen through @spotify
Hope you all have a beautiful evening!
Love you all, ❤️
