Should We Block Black Friday?

The holiday season is fast approaching. Whether that statement fills you with excitement or dread is personal. I am usually a mixture of both but if I had to pick, probably the later. One of the reasons for that is, call me a Scrooge, but I hate the consumption overload that comes with Christmas. Particularly sale days like Black Friday, which is now extended to the whole weekend through to Cyber Monday. Again, whether you love it or hate it is all down to you. I again will choose the later.

Into The Eco - Laptop - Lifestyle Blog - Productivity

 

There I said it. I know I am not the only one, who sometimes struggles with fear and self-doubt. But, the mean little voice in my head sure makes me feel like I am. Saying, everyone else’s work is better than mine, I don’t have enough followers, you know the drill.

This is a different kind of article you are used to reading, but I need to go back to basics. I started this blog to provide a cathartic space to write and feel better, to be honest, and relaxed. I wanted to lay my soul bare and hope someone might read and relate. So, I am being brutally honest to enable myself to progress. I guess there is no time like the present.

We drink tap water abroad and live to tell the tale. So far we have drunk tap water from Bali, Cambodia and India, with not one single complaint. In the past, this sounds like a recipe for disaster. Envisioning a holiday spent cradling the toilet rather than out exploring. Well, thanks to Water-To-Go, we can all safely and conveniently stay hydrated anywhere in the world.

Worn it 30 times is a series we’ve put together, highlighting the joy of wearing our clothes 30 times and more.

This week it is the turn of Elly, from Take It Up Wear It Out.  

 

Conventional fashion wisdom suggests that impulse purchases are unlikely to remain in your wardrobe for more than a few months, let alone a few years. The same style advisors would probably also try to discourage you from buying anything when you are abroad and have been day drinking. But, I like to defy conventional fashion rules. That’s why a sparkly cheesecloth dress has been a much-loved part of my summer wardrobe for thirteen years.

Bali: Eat, Pray, Recycle

 

 

We love to travel. We also love to recycle. In modern life, it’s more common than ever to travel across the world and visit places different to our own. In search of adventure, culture, and stories to share. We believe it’s so important to consider the impact we have on each place when visiting. Watch how Keep Bali Beautiful is doing just that.
