Lauren Fritz of The Greenest Blue reached out to us when we launched our Take 3 for the Sea Charity T-Shirts (Which are available for purchase over here - $25 from the sale of each Tee heading straight to the Non-Profit!) and over the past few months we have loved connecting with her both via email and through her inspiring Blog.
Lauren is a Dolphin Guide (Does a job get any cooler than that!?) in the small coastal town of Kaikoura, New Zealand and says that she has a personal mission "to inspire readers to live agreener lifestyle in order to protectthe big blue."Amen to that sister.
Lauren's blog 'The Greenest Blue' is a place of inspiration for us all to live and enjoy our lives to the fullest while being conscious of the environmental impacts that our daily actions have. Don't worry - it's not all doom & gloom in fact Lauren aims to inspire, ignite and help guide mindful choices to protect this special planet and 'Big Blue' ocean we are so lucky to have surrounding us. It's legends like Lauren that work day in and day out in the ocean and with the animals that call the ocean home that help bring the confronting issues and consequences of our actions to the front of our minds.
I absolutely love her recent '8 weeks Eco Challenge' which presents ideas and choices for the common consumer (That's us my friends) and questions whether we are currently making the best choices for our oceans. You can read up her 8 week blog post series over here and gain some great insight into why we should all be questioning these topics and start to make some changes... now. Because, did you know that if we don't act NOW, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean (Thats only 31 years away... ie we will be alive for this horrific fact to come true before our eyes - outrageous huh?)
There’s a lot of chat out there about jewellery and we wanted to debunk a few of the myths that you may have heard over the years. From the history of Pearls to the truth about Solid Gold. Here are 8 Jewellery Myths debunked - So you can sleep easy (and let your Aunty know the real deal over your next family dinner) sharing the real facts about tarnishing, Gold, pearls and much more.
If you're a travel-lover like us (dur - who isn't), then there's a high chance you are already following Brodie from @locationlost over on instagram where she shares her life on the road, living out of her **super stylin** van with her partner Nick & cute pooch Quinn. Based in Western Australia, Brodie & Nick share their incredible adventures, drool-worthy landscapes they get to experience in Aus and share honest conversations about a life lived on the road. It's not all cute shots (and cute outfits)!
Nothing quite beats a delicious Soba Noodle Salad. They're often rare to find out and about but when you find one, with the perfect dressing - Oooh wee it's a jolly good feeling, one you want to bottle up & come back to meal after meal. And so with the emphasis on food & sharing around Christmas, I wanted to do exactly that. Share one of my favourite Soba Noodle Salad recipes so that you too, can relish in these flavours & treat your tastebuds (and others!) this festive season.
