Our gold laced wyandotte may not be a reliable egg layer (she’s a good lawn ornament for most of the year) but she’s predictable. every year on the 12th of august she starts laying again. she then continuously lays each day for a month, then goes broody for 2 months, then does it one more time before she shuts up shop until the 12th of august. her eggs have always been on the smaller size and they are spotty, you always know she’s laid and egg because she is very noisy! she’s 3 this year which is old in terms of layers 🥚

Question: should i post more of my vintage finds on here or will you be annoyed by my selfies? i still want to post about social and environmental justice always. i also would like to continue my story series but d**n if that might get dark. also, friendly reminder to shop local and buy vintage. i found this tee (that i’m keeping for the time being!) on facebook marketplace. it’s pretty rare to find small tropical vintage tees and i was soooooo excited to spot this one! y’all, vintage is the best. it just is. it’s the best. everything “new” is a regurgitation (usually a poorly made one) of something old. when you buy local or buy vintage from anywhere you’re giving your money directly to a real human not some shady corporation using child labor and human slavery to make their clothes. tons of vintage stores use instagram to sell their wares. there’s also facebook maretplace, ebay, etsy (switch your “item type” search to “vintage” because they do have a bunch of mass produced nonsense on there), poshmark, depop, etc. #buylocal#shopvintage#secondhandfirst#secondhand#sustainable#sustainablefashion
If you haven’t gotten you’re order in for this week, don’t worry, you still have time! place your order by tomorrow morning (wednesday) and your box will be on your doorstep by thursday. the o’henry peaches are all the rage right now!😝🍑

I haven't talked with you about the outcome of my #plasticfreejuly challenge. to be honest, i am slightly disappointed. partly in myself, partly in the system.
the first 18 days of the challenge went very well. i was making conscious decisions about everything i consumed. it was not difficult, on the contrary, it was super exciting! the blue bag (this is where we put plastic household waste in oslo) stayed empty for 2,5 weeks! generally, it would fill up in 3-4 days. so i was very proud of myself!
and then i went to lithuania for my holidays. let's just start with the facts - the recycling system is close to non existing there, specially if you live outside of the city. so consuming less and trying to avoid packaging should be the priority. but people were just laughing about this and everyone told me "why are you making your life so complicated?!", "being vegan is not enough complicated for you?"
what is more complicated - to choose between pasta in a paper box vs pasta in a plastic package or taking a bell pepper straight into your cart instead of putting each fruit or veggie in it's own plastic bag or taking care of miles and miles of landfills? if you put it in a hole, it doesn't really disappear, or do you think it does? 🙄
so the rest of my challenge did not go so well. family shopping really got complicated and i started to feel like this annoying person watching over everyone's actions. many arguments took place, and i eventually thought it's not worth it. i see my family only once a year and i don't want this time to be all about negative discussions.
i already tought my family to use reusable veggie bags and shopping bags, use a bamboo toothbrush and eat more plantbased. they already grow their own food and like to forage food in the forests. it's a very good start.
i do secretly hope that all the nagging and fact spreading i've done will unconsciously lead to their even smarter decisions ☺
when it comes to my life, even if july is over, i will keep making smart choices. i already did a lot of changes in my life before the challenge. i believe it matters. and this doesn't make my life complicated. it makes me happy and hopeful! 🤍🌳

• naturtalente zur reinigung •
ist der darm gesund, können nährstoffe gut aufgenommen werden, funktioniert unser immunsystem und fühlen wir uns rundherum wohl.
darmreinigung und -pflege ist ein absoluter gesundheitstrend. dabei muss man es nicht übertreiben und pausenlos fancy superfoods essen oder andere verrückte maßnahmen ergreifen. es reicht, einmal am tag mit einer handvoll wertvoller pflanzenfasern zu unterstützen:
das pack cleansing von ringana enthält einen hohen anteil an ballaststoffen aus guarkernfaser, akazienfaser, baobab-fruchtfleischpulver, apfelfaser, zitrusfaser, leinsamenmehl und flohsamenschalenpulver.
calcium aus calciumcitrat, akazienfaser, baobab und leinsamenmehl trägt zur natürlichen funktion der verdauungsenzyme bei.
riboflavin, niacin und biotin aus buchweizenkeimpulver spielen eine zentrale rolle bei der erhaltung der schleimhäute, so auch jener im darm.
flohsamenschalenpulver greift dem verdauungssystem unter die arme.
und enthaltener bacillus coagulans (mind. 1000 mio. koloniebildende einheiten) ist ein verdauungsregulierender mikroorganismus.
tu dir was gutes und versorg deinen darm - dort werden alle nährstoffe aufgenommen, die wir zu uns nehmen.

in #airinkarchives we revisit @messymsxi mural of spring ‘17 in singapore, creating a version of nature cohabitating with the concrete jungle of singapore in the wake of improved air, akin to what we have found ourselves in with a global quarantine (almost) pushing people indoors and bringing turtles back to the shore, civet in streets, goats in alleys, geese in vegas and coyotes in bay - it is a nature takeover.
to quote @thesmartlocalsg piece on this, “zi xi’s signature illustration style depicts singapore’s urban landscape cohesively blended into nature. landmarks like the marina bay sands, singapore flyer and the esplanade make her work uniquely singaporean.” .

Just waiting for this beautiful outfit to come home... 🤩
as we are a small brand (2 persons🙋🏽♂️🙋🏼♀️) we often get help from family and friends when we run out of hands😅
gritt's parents are well known with packing and sending orders, as they previously have had a fashion store in copenhagen. therefor they are more than prepared when our fields of flowers styles are coming home to help pack, send and even help deliver your and our retailers orders❤️
to have our friends and family volunteer to help us is the biggest gift! 🙏🏽
we will document on stories how we work when we get our orders home and how we pack and send. it's not glamorous, but it's fun and a little hectic. it requires lots of coffee, structure and a good old school van morrison-ish playlist after request from gritt's dad. we are very, very excited! 🤩✨
