A sustainable outfit and a trip to Austria

A few weeks ago, I visited family in Austria for a lovely long weekend. It was a trip to remember. We swam in crystal clear lakes and climbed the mountaintops of the Alps. We adored the fresh air, the serene landscapes, and the heartfelt chats. I was even surprised by the choice of vegan food that was offered by the restaurants in the little towns we visited. I knew that comfort was at the center of this trip, so I ensured all the clothes I brought, were light, loose and comfortable. On one of the days, my outfit was completely sustainable and fair-trade, which is why I thought it would be great to share the outfit on my blog. I started buying fair-trade and sustainable only about two years ago, so I still have quite a few fast-fashion pieces in my wardrobe. However, it is great to see my collection of ethical clothing growing, as time goes by. Nowadays it is not uncommon to wear an all-ethical outfit.

My life in 26 words

Today I want to share my life from A to Z. I saw this on the amazingly beautiful photography blog Oak & Bone by Gabi Mulder and was inspired to give it a go myself. For every letter of the alphabet, I chose a word that means something to me at this point in my life. This way I ended up with a little 26-word long dictionary that puts my current life into words.

With a dash of lime: a simple soup recipe

This soup is comfort in a bowl. My boyfriend created this recipe as a chicken soup years ago, but when we met he made me a vegan version on one of our first dates. He used to love cooking for me when we first met, and I have fond memories of watching him cook all types of veggie meals to impress me. Now that we live together, I am usually the one who cooks (as I get home earlier from work). But the boyfriend still likes to surprise me with this soup every once in a while. And it still reminds me of those early days in Edinburgh.
