However, that doesn’t mean that we cannot change the tides and try to save it. Here are 5 little ways to help our planet which you can hopefully (easily) incorporate into your life. Continue reading

A wish upon a star

 

Are we human because we gaze at the stars or do we gaze at the stars because we are human?

Dear stars,

How beautiful you all look to us every night. Shining as bright as you possibly can. Showing us the way when lost. Being there to give us comfort when we are in need of it. It seems to us that you hold all the secrets of the universe. The secrets we have been trying to unravel for far too many years. It must be quite wonderful to live all the way up there and knowing so much. Continue reading

Dear Christmas-lovers,

Christmas is our most beloved time of the year. We absolutely adore it and cannot wait until it is here again. Luckily, that will be very soon. But, something that we might love the most about Christmas is the days before. The days where you start prepping all your Christmas plans and start decorating your house. The days in which we appreciate all the things that we love about Christmas. These are the things we love most about it.  Continue reading

Hello Environmentalists!

Lately we have been getting more and more interested in our environment. We’ve watched a couple of documentaries about waste and damage. And we were in shock of the amount of waste and the amount of ways in which we harm our planet. That is why we’ve been trying to find ways in which we can help our world a little bit.

Fast fashion is like fast food. After the sugar rush it just leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Hello people!

Today we wanted to talk with you about fast fashion. As some of you may know fast fashion is the phenomenon that started in the 20th century where certain fashion industries produce loads of clothing, in small amounts of time for cheap prices. Many people, however, do not know that this fast fashion industry is one of the most damaging industries to our environment, and the people who make these clothes are often underpaid. This fast fashion phenomenon provides such a lot of waste that it is ruining our planet. Continue reading

Trying new things

 

Never be afraid to try something new, because life gets boring when you stay between the limits of what you already know.

Hello there!

We always found it very hard to say yes to new things. There was something about new experiences that seemed to frighten us. We guess it was because of the fact that new always comes with changes. And change used to be a bad thing for us. We were always content with the safety which our ordinary daily lives provided us. Why would we want to spoil that? Continue reading
