I stumbled upon this amazing berm garden last week in Pt Chev. The garden was full of veggies and everyone walking past was stopping to look or take photos. I love berm gardens, so much more practical and beneficial than a grass verge that needs to be mown all the time.
Pantry grocery top up, bought from @bin_inn_onehunga using a selection of mismatched jars and containers. Total was $36 for baking soda, flour, rice, pasta, peanut butter, milk powder, Israeli cous cous, drinking chocolate, chocolate chips, nutritional yeast, rock salt, basil and blanched almonds.
Following that glamorous shot of me with my rubbish container on my head, this is the contents. For a full breakdown of my rubbish from 2017 check out my latest blog post. Link in bio.
Sorry I haven't shared a tiny house update in a whole month! Work has been slow this past month, mainly cause I've been holidaying. The utility box is now on, and all of the flashing. The outside is nearly complete and it's mostly finishing touches. I need to tackle the inside soon, but feeling a bit daunted by the electrical.
Over on the blog, I'm talking trash. Actually I'm always talking trash, but more specifically the trash I made last year. Have a nosey and learn a bit too much about me 😉
Went to Takapuna beach yesterday, post last week's storm. My friend's and I sat around chatting and picked up this assortment of plastic within our reaching distance. The beach was littered with debris, mostly wood, seaweed etc but there was an insane amount of plastic nestled within this. The plastic sizes varied from a hand to teeny tiny nurdles, the little white bits you can see in the picture here. It was really overwhelming and heart breaking to witness this. I'll share some photos of the beach in my stories. Shout out to my amazing friends who helped me collect this whole having a great yarn about environmental issues @jubeedobedoo @earnshizzle @jmwalshe56
Went to the op shop yesterday to buy my friend a replacement coffee plunger after I accidentally broke his. There was a half price sale on @ the Sallies, and I'm such a sucker for retro NZ made crockery and cool pictures, so I left with a bit more than I planned... Cost me $8.50 (NZ) all up though!
Happy New Year everyone! Just checking in as I haven't been posting much and my last post may have seemed a bit weird but was totally me just being usual honest and joking self. Had a great social media break and have spent the last week and a half constantly surrounded by my amazing friends. Here's some photos of some of the amazing meals we've made the past few days. These are all super frugal affairs by the way, as a lot of ingredients are foraged or salvaged or homemade. Also the last photo features a plastic packaged cake that I'd like to clarify was rescued from a supermarket compost bin (in its packaging!). I hope everyone is OK and didn't find the holidays too stressful with dealing with family or being alone. If anyone needs someone to talk to or needs cheering up please feel free to message me! Much love xo
According to instagram you guys only like me for my food photos and tiny house. Funny thing is I hate sharing photos of my pantry and groceries, it's not particularly exciting to me, but I'll take the hint #bestnine2017
