Hubby bought a hot glue gun so I made another pole for another one of my monstera cuttings (the family is growing rapidly!!) I got the idea from @pottingwithkiki (go check out her insta if you love houseplants!!) and adapted it to use what I had on hand (an old tree branch, a hemp mat, hot glue, and a couple of rubber bands saved from newspapers) For the ones I’ve made previously (note the adansonii to the left) I’ve used garden twine, but hot glue works just as well. Plus I need my twine for all the wild tomatoes in the garden 🍅 . The pole looks way too tall but I have high hopes for this baby, and will be repotting it as soon as I can find a bigger pot 🤗 . . . #mosteradeliciosa #love #hempmat #diy #houseplants #plantmom #usewhatyouhave #happy #growgrowgrow #plantbabies
So hard to get colour correct in the lighting here, but anyway - finally sewing up the summer pj shorts I cut out for A in February, as alternative bottoms to go with the pj top I made at February #craftcamp . Thankfully she's the kind of kid who might opt for pj shorts in any season... Fabric: includes leftovers from the @gormanclothing quilt cover after making the other pants, paired with some mauve quilting cotton polkadots from #deepstash ... Pattern : based on @oliverands #sleepoverpyjamas 🐱💜😇 #handmadekidsclothes #usewhatyouhave #memadeeveryday
This mornings outdoor activity. Kids made their own charcoal and drew pictures. Course I had to have a wee shot too 😊 #naturalart #outdoordrawing #usewhatyouhave
My Dad is soooo Rad!!! Check his garden out! He’s such a legend - the King of #reducereuserecycle and #growyourown - currently growing at the moment potatoes, gooseberries, plums, apples, peas, runner beans, black currants, red currents, grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers, rhubarb, spring cabbage, Brussels sprouts, onions, leeks, garlic, carrots, turnips, celery! How amazing is that! The greenhouse at the back once once a conservatory on the back of my sisters house, the sheds are all cobbled together with things he’s been given or found. So many pretty flowers blooming or ready to bloom, a pond for the wildlife, a compost heap that’s home to slow worms, bird feeders that attract so many different types of birds. The man even grew his own turf when he wanted to raise a corner of his garden! Absolute legend! Everything has a use and everything can be recycled. What a role model! #rolemodel #grandadswiss #thehumanswissarmyknife #recycle #usewhatyouhave #usewhatyoufind #vegetablepatch #homegrown #keepbritaintidy #2minutebeachclean #allotment #gardening
From one brutal session to the next and still smiling. Was a bummer to get sick in China but I took the time off that the body needed and am enjoying being back on the bike doing what I can and ridiculously thankful for the glorious weather making it a little easier.. It’s always a bit of a slower return (especially when coughing up a lung out there) than you’d like but #startwhereyouare #usewhatyouhave #dowhatyoucan
Another make-up empty. This is probably my favourite foundation ever. The smell is gorgeous - your usual Chanel smell. It's full coverage and for oily skin it gives a beautiful lightly powdered finish. I bloody love it, so much so I have another full one in my stash to start. However, before I do I'm going to try and finish some of my other foundations, which is going to take ages 😫 I'm currently trying to box-off the Clarins extra comfort foundation, which is gorgeous (and in a pot, which I love) because it reminds me of Suqqu...RIP #hitthepan #hittingpan #empties #shopyourstash #skincare #skincareempties #nobuy #nobuy2019 #usewhatyouhave #panporn #panningcommunity #pan #savemoney #serums #makeupempties #makeup #chanel

Friday afternoon is looking like this. Breathing in the glorious Autumn afternoon with some meditative mending. It seems I often end up stitching outdoors on Friday afternoons. Must be the weekend drawing me outside. 🤷‍♀️ .

And even when everything did get crazy well there was still pie and a lovely impromptu lunch with a very wise friend. Shepherd’s Pie made with the Moroccan Lamb Shank left overs from the start of the week topped with potato, cauliflower and cannellini bean mash and served with lemon dressed leaves from Anna’s garden. Chuffed that I managed to pull this together in half an hour, very fortunate that my clever friend always comes with offerings fresh from her amazing garden. Sometimes the universe just conspires to make you sit for an hour and eat pie and realise that that’s really ok #fridayfeels #startwhereyouare #usewhatyouhave #dowhatyoucan and #restifyouneedto #selfcare #lunching #alfresco #inthegarden #shepherdspie #withatwist #leftovers #homegrown #organic #greens #cheerstofriendship #thankful #grateful #blessed
In love with these ones🍃✨ #lipsticks #lipliners #usewhatyouhave
It's too much mascara, so I finally have to use it up ✨ #usewhatyouhave
Ecofriendly swaps for clingwrap. Clingwrap (clingfilm) is a nightmare for the environment. It's impossible to recycle because it burns up too quickly, and it's very difficult to get it clean, which is essential for effective recycling. Instead of clingwrap, there are a number of options to suit anybody's budget and needs. I'm mentioning my silicone sheets again because work just like cling wrap and we use them as lunchbox liners and to cover food in the microwave. @agreenaworld has a return to recycle policy, so they've got you covered! Beeswax/vegan wax wraps are also a great option for wrapping anything (except meat) but aren't heat safe. They can also be used to make a lid for bowls or jars. Snack pouches have had mixed reviews. I've seen some people who say they are frustrating because you can only fit so much in them. But other people love them for lunchboxes. The best option for low waste living is #usewhatyouhave . Even a plastic Tupperware used many times is more ecofriendly than buying something you don't need. You can also repurpose jars from pickles or jams to store food. The most simple option for short term storage is to simply use a plate. For cut fresh produce, put it cut side down on a plate in the fridge. Otherwise, use a plate to cover a bowl.
☀️Review: I received this @pantene Intense Rescue Shot complimentary from @influenster. I have really long hair so this only lasted me one use and I didn’t see much of a difference with just this one but what it did do was help all my oils and leave in conditioner sink in. My hair was so soft and shiny when you use this product in combination with other products. I feel like it helps other hair products work better. . . . #influencer #pantene #panningcommunity #projectpan #projectpanning #projectpan2019 #panporn #panlover #hitpan #panthatpalette #useitup #projectpanporn #panningmakeup #beautyhaul #panprogress #makeup #useitorloseit #palette #eyeshadow #paletteporn #projectpan2019 #shopyourstash #panningmystash #empties #hitthepan #projectpanner #usewhatyouhave #projectpancommunity #20by2020 #useitup
Yay another empty!! I really loved this Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating cleanser, it was so gentle yet effective. I will definitely repurchase in the future ☺️ #skincarejunkie #kbeautyaddict #projectpancommunity #usewhatyouhave
Two empties, when it comes to mascara I am always looking for the next latest and greatest 🙄. I buy both drugstore and high end..Almay one coat Dial Up mascara actually worked really well except I never changed the dial, always had it on 3 for max volume. Plus it was easy to remove which I really liked. I would buy it again but it’s likely been discontinued 🤔 Also finished Living Proof No frizz shampoo in the deluxe trial size. #emptiesreview #usewhatyougot #usewhatyouhave #projectpanning #simplicity #empties #empties2019 #mascara #almay #makeupreview #makeup #livingproof #declutter

Ahhh 😍 our new home is coming together and it gives me all the feels. Two months in and I've already done a lot to make it ours. Feels like home 💙🏡 #homesweethome #acreagelife #makingitours #naptime #decor #thisisliving #usewhatyouhave
honestly, this is a sad and special day! I have officially used the last drops of my @elfcosmetics Camo Concealer in Light Sand. I have used only this every single day under my eyes since I think December??? it’s my favorite concealer of my life,and I’m so proud I finished it! but I’m also gonna miss it😩. our next cruelty free concealer up to bat is the @tartecosmetics Shape Tape, and if the hype is real I think I’m really going to love this one too. have you tried either?? tell me all your thoughts bunnies!
It was raining and I had to go out to my truck.... covered the valuable parts! #haha #rainydays #usewhatyouhave #weirdo #funny #whatcanisay #greeneyedgirl

So... I'm starting a new panning project but with SAMPLES😀😀😀Its a short term project, starting today and will end by 30th next month. . Here are samples I've accumulate since last year. Its not much, but I want to keep it in check. I will check in everytime I've finish one. Wish me luck😄 #lowbuy #samples #samplepocalypse #useitup #usewhatyouhave #makeuprehab #panningproject #projectpan
So I have shared this dish many times on my page in different variations. This time I added mushrooms w/sauerkraut, potatoes & onion then seasoned w/pepper The one on the left is vegan sautéed in light olive oil. The one on the right has added Italian sausage. #takeyourpick #foodforthesoul #sauerkraut #eeeeeats #nosh #homecooking #nofancyplates #usewhatyouhave #imadethis #yummy #italiansausage #rubinos

Nice and sanitized! Going to keep on expanding moon river to match sunrise and totally toasted. I cant wait to finish these 💕
Finished my Dr Brandt Pores No More Luminizer Primer! I don’t think this primer is the best with my body chemistry. My makeup wore unevenly throughout the day most days and I would often end up with a stripe where my highlighter had been applied, which didn’t happen with the other primers I’ve used. Because of this, I would not repurchase. It doesn’t compare to the Benefit Porefessional primer sample I had. I already like my current primer (the Touch in Sol primer from Boxycharm a few months ago) way better. I am swapping in a Bath and Body Works Ultra Shea Body Cream in Sensual Amber, which has an absolutely lovely scent. #projectpan #projectpan2019 #projectpancommunity #projectpancommunity2019 #projectpanner #projectpanning #usewhatyouhave #useitup #shopyourstash #primer #bathandbodyworks
Makeup Inventory: Blush - 33 I forgot one in the first picture so it’s all by itself in a picture.

Makeup Inventory: Bronzers - 8 I know there are only 7 in the picture but when I was taking a photo of my highlighters. There was one hidden in a palette. It’s way too dark for me so I might never use, we’ll see. I had 9 but I finished one not too long ago.

Makeup Inventory: Eyelashes - 14 So, I would really appreciate it if one of you can explain to me why I have 14 sets of lashes. I don’t wear lashes. I don’t know how to apply lashes. I haven’t even tried to learn how to apply lashes in over a year. I really don’t understand how or why this has happened. 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . #ProjectPan #ProjectPan2019 #ProjectPanCommunity #Panning #PanningCommunity #UseItUp #UseItUp2019 #MakeupCollection #MakeupPanner #PanningMakeup #ProjectPanner #ShopYourStash #UseWhatYouHave #NoBuy #ShoppingMyStash #MakeupMess #MakeupInventory #Eyelashes #FalseEyelashes #Falsies
Stressful few weeks at work + going out of town + Ulta sale = [would normally equal] an Ulta haul. No Buy to the rescue! $135 saved - whew!
Makeup Inventory: Setting Spray - 1 This is the CoverFx Illuminating Setting Spray. I transferred it to this bottle a while back because I didn’t the spritzer on the bottle it can in. Honestly this bottle isn’t any better. I don’t really like this setting spray but I’m waiting to finish it before buying another one. . . . #ProjectPan #ProjectPan2019 #ProjectPanCommunity #Panning #PanningCommunity #UseItUp #UseItUp2019 #MakeupCollection #MakeupPanner #PanningMakeup #ProjectPanner #ShopYourStash #UseWhatYouHave #NoBuy #ShoppingMyStash #MakeupMess #MakeupInventory #SettingSpray #CoverFXIlluminatingSettingSpray

💖 50-DAY UPDATE ON #ABHSULTRY 💖 Took my palette out for a bit of sun today and finally you can see some progress again. So much for thinking I could finish this shadow by the end of May lmao I give myself until the end of summer (August 31st) at the bare minimum. As a mini goal though, I’d like to hit side pan in June. Would love love love to use up the whole eyeshadow pan (it would be a first for me). Hopefully I can focus my energy this summer and then get to the PMG platinum bronze, which I just ordered this morning eeeeee ✨ . . . . . #panningcommunity #projectpan #projectpan2019 #projectpanning #projectpancommunity #projectpanner #makeupuseup #useitup #panningdiaries #shopyourstash #usewhatyouhave #makeupstash #hitthepan #panporn #panthatpalette #panineverypalette #onemonthonepalette #projectpanporn #eyeshadowpan #peepingpan #abhsultrypalette
Let me introduce you to my collection of dirty, mostly #free , perfectly perfect #reusable #totebags 🎒🧳👜👌🏻 No. 69 in the #100days100ways #countdown to #lowwasteliving is to BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag) next time you shop ANYWHERE🚫🛍 〰️ This is another great place to begin #goingzerowaste 👍🏻 Once we use a plastic bag, it gets blown all over the place—into a tree, onto a fence, or into the ocean, where it either gets eaten by an animal, making it ill (or dead), or it joins the rebel collective trying to build their own continent😰 〰️ Paper bags are actually worse, which seems counterintuitive at first. Paper is #recyclable and #compostable , right? Yes, but to produce these bags requires more energy ( = more #greenhousegases ) and more resources (bc they’re thicker/heavier) than plastic bags . . . and are also flimsier/less reusable 🤔 〰️ In March 2019 the NYT published an article citing a 2011 British study that found you have to #reuse a paper bag 3 times before it offsets the environmental production cost of just 1 plastic bag. That number goes up if you reuse the plastic bag—for waste bins around your house, for dog 💩, etc. (Please feel free to comment below with other great ways to #upcycle plastic bags you may find in your possession!) 〰️ The same article claims that you must use a #reusablebag 131 times before it offsets 1 plastic bag 😱 While this may sound discouraging, remember that these are good for more than 131 uses—they can be used almost indefinitely. Say you go grocery shopping twice per week. That means in 1.25 years, you’re in the clear, and the habit is engrained to never go back. As you use them through the years—some of these totes are over a decade old—your #eco karma builds higher. 〰️ The thing is, you *do* have to remember to use them. I leave mine permanently in my car—even have a lil hook for them—because I live too far from a grocery store for this storage solution to ever be a problem. 〰️ I keep a couple #masonjars in there too (in #silicone sleeves to prevent breakage, but it’s not required) in case I find myself at a #bulkstore 👍🏻 Cloth #producebags are useful too—but if I’m honest, I usually throw them in my cart naked✌🏻❤️#hippieslikenaked
I started making my own nut milks years ago because I was excited about a new blender and didn’t like all the additives that come in many nut milks... but turns out it’s a great zero waste hack as well! . . . You can use the leftover pulp for energy balls like I did here, bake it to remove moisture and make a flour, crackers, granola... the list goes on if you get creative! #usewhatyouhave #nutmilk #homemadealmondmilk #zerowasteliving #minimalkitchen #minimalmolly

💄 𝕞𝕒𝕜𝕖𝕦𝕡 𝕥𝕚𝕡: switch out your skincare with the seasons to help your makeup last longer! . I'm trying to use up this @clinique foundation stick (#teamprojectpan ) but it leaves me looking super oily after a few hours. My hydrating moisturizers & primers just don't work well with this foundation, so I completely stopped wearing it 🙅🏾‍♀️ . Then I remembered I have this @origins matte moisturizer in my stash! It was too drying to use in the winter, but it works great with this warmer weather 🌞 It was just enough to layer with my other skincare to keep my skin moisturized while also keeping excess oil from peeking through my foundation 🙌🏾 . Do you switch out your skincare with the seasons? 🌞❄️☔

Empty 168 : Cleanser empty! Not really impressed with the cleanser. Just used it up.
Empty 167 : Sample perfume empty. One of my favourite scents ☺️
Empty 166 : Toner empty! I used this in my AM skincare routine. Quite satisfied with this toner- I would repurchase this one if there was a decent deal on it available. However it’s not the most hydrating one.
Imma let you in on a little secret. You know those people who make whipping up a meal look so easy? It’s not because they are TALENTED, it’s because they are STRATEGIC. A little prep can go a very long way. Don’t underestimate the ROI of blanching a ton of veggies on a Sunday or Monday. It’s a time saving tip that literally solves the scrappy struggle of throwing together a lunch or dinner at the end of the week. • Here’s whatcha gonna do: Get a pot of salted water going on your stove and toss in your faves. I’m a fan of haricot vert, asparagus, sugar snap peas and broccoli. Let ‘em boil away for a few minutes before immediately draining and soaking in an ice bath. Keep in your fridge and use as needed. • You can toss them in salads, cook them into pasta, dip them in hummus or pop them in your mouth for a healthy snack. • But if you really want to impress the fam, roll them into blanched collard green leaves burrito-style like I did here. This one’s got blanched green beans, asparagus and shiitakes that are sautéd quickly in a little scallion, garlic, ginger, jalapeño, salt and olive oil. I snuck in a little avocado and purple cabbage before rolling because I’m extra like that. Hit it with a Miso-Tahini dressing that I already had on hand thanks to my Monday mealprep, which clocked this dinner in as Fridge to Table in under 10 minutes. #prepyourselfbeforeyouwreckyourself#thefeedfeed #thefeedfeedvegan #thefeedfeedglutenfree @thefeedfeed @thefeedfeed.vegan @thefeedfeed.glutenfree @sustainedbyplants #vegan #paleo #vegetarian #veganforlife #veganfoodporn #collardgreenswrap #healthyrecipes #lunchideas #eattherainbow #mealprep #miso #tahini #wraps #thebalaboostachef #eeeeeats #instayum #veganrecipes #vegetarianrecipes #paleorecipes #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #eatcleantraindirty #usewhatyouhave
