minimalist hair care no poo

Going vegan is a beautiful process. It starts with upwatting what you eat, and ends up revolutionising most other areas of life, too.

In a beautifully poetic and scientific article by Dr. Kelly Brogan, home birth is described as the opportunity of a lifetime. I couldn’t agree more.

When you announce you’re pregnant, along with congratulations, you may receive ‘the list’, a scarily long document detailing everything a new parent must own. And if you’re anything like me, it’ll send you into a tailspin of overwhelm. I mean, you’re only just getting your head around the fact that you’re growing a human inside ...
