Cloth diapers from Swedish brand RetroPi made of bambu.

I’m so looking forward to be using these cloth diapers from RetroPi, isn’t the colors amazing? Along with the cloth diapers we’re going to use wash cloths made of organic cotton as well. Nicer to the environment and the baby.

Last week I placed an order on Etsy and a few days later this beautiful, upcycled changing mat came to our door. Normadot is a danish company that hand screen print on all there products, the colors are subtle but yet interesting and I just love this portable changing mat made out of upcycled materials.

Check them out HERE.

Btw, at Etsy I’ve found a lot of organic, environmental friendly baby products that I plan to get my hands on.

my everyday breakfast

For breakfast I usually end up making the same thing for a few reasons; 1 it's easy, 2 it's inexpensive, 3 it's filling and the most important reason, it's so delicious!

So what does the breakfast contain?
– 1-2 dl oats
– 2 tablespoons of chiaseeds
– 1 teaspoon of poppy seeds
– pour some nutmilk (I use oatmilk) over the seeds and oats so it's generously soaked
– add fresh strawberries, banana and drizzle any nutbutter of choice (I use pure organic peanutbutter)
ENJOY!
+ I drink about 800 ml of water and I take my B12 and Zinc supplements aswell.

Me and my husband eat very similiar breakfasts but our six year old eats a more versatile meal. This morning he ate oatyoghurt with fresh strawberries and shredded cocounut flakes, and B12 as supplements.

sharing economy

IMG_7747

If you live in Sweden (or if you can read swedish) I really recommend this book called “ÄGODELA” which is all about a “movement” called sharing economy. Today we spend so much money on new things because there’s an urge to be updated with the most trending things on the market. With massive consumption as a growing economy, our planet can not provide with all the resources that is needed to support mass production. So, consider, sharing, borrowing, hiring, second-hand shopping when you’re in need of a screwdriver, a car, a new dress och even a place to stay when your on vacation.

Me, my husband and our son went for a week-long vacation in Finland, where we stayed at random people’s  home for one-two nights for such a low-cost. We used the website Airbnb when we were looking for a place to stay. We are really impressed and glad that we used Airbnb instead of hotels, which costs a lot more, not as cozy or as socialfriendly as it was to meet new people everyday, and they provide us with great tips about the city.
