APRIL FAVOURITES: MY SWITCH TO A SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE (Recipes, Makeup, Fashion, Ect.)

This month's blog post features: many tears, ups and downs, trial and error and finally...the perfect April favourites. For those of you who have been following my blog for awhile (WE JUST HIT 10,400 VIEWS, WOW), you will know that I've been trying to become more environmentally conscious. I've done a lot of research and have been making a plethora of lifestyle changes. It's been hard work but I feel amazing, and I wanted to share some of my eco-friendly changes to help inspire you to make a difference too. Now let's dive right in!

MY FAVOURITE WAY TO READ:




Goodbye paper, hello app. I've switched from reading paperback novels to downloading digital novels. To be fair, the majority of my library has been comprised of digital copies for years but I've finally gone completely paper-free. I've been reading on my phone however if you like to read a lot, I would recommend getting a Kindle. The Kindle Paperwhite is my favourite of the many e-readers out there. (I used to own one!) I would highly recommend the Paperwhite because of it's unique screen lighting. The screen is not backlit and instead the light is directed towards the screen making itless harsh too read than your typical tablet.

MY FAVOURITE BOOK/AUDIOBOOK:

You didn't think I'd forget my book of the month?! This month's book is The Tale's of Beetle the Bard by J.K. Rowling. I absolutely love the world of Harry Potter and this book is no exception. It's currently FREE to download on Audible as a audiobook (without needing a new membership). Go check it out.

Another re-read this month.

Is anyone else excited for the fourth book to be released soon?!

10 WAYS TO CELEBRATE EASTER WHILE SELF-ISOLATING AND/OR SOCIAL DISTANCING



As something who has missed their fair share of holidays and family occasions I understand that being away from your family and friends can be frustrating. The holidays' are often stressful even without the added complication of social distancing and being unable to spend time with your friends and family.

I've made it my mission to get creative and make your holiday a little bit brighter and more exciting.

DISCLAIMER: Please keep in mind that the current global situation is always changing and that you should check with your local health authorities and government before going out or ordering online. (This list involves a few basic crafting, food and baking ideas which you might not have on hand.)

CRAFTS CRAFTS CRAFTS

There are so many fantastic crafts that you can do to embrace the holiday spirit. A lot of crafts can be made from objects that you already have around the house. Use those empty toiler paper rolls and turn them into bunny rabbits! Empty egg cartons can be decorated and turned into cute outfits for your Easter eggs. Print out a black and white line sketch and get colouring! If you need a bit more inspiration, Pinterest is a great place to find affordable crafts. I've made a list on my page for you guys.

HIDING EGGS FOR YOUR PETS, FAMILY MEMBERS AND/OR YOURSELF

This is probably one of my favourite items from my list!
