Zero-Waste Living and Saving Money with Taylor of! [Interview]

Image Source:

Happy Earth Day guys!

Many of you who follow me on Instagram know that I try to incorporate different ways to reduce waste in my life. I learned about the zero-waste movement three years ago when Lauren Singer, owner of the blog Trash is for Tossers, Founder and CEO of the Simplii Co. and owner of Package Free Shop in New York City, popularized the idea on social media. Since then I’ve replaced plastic bags, I started composting, and avoid single-use coffee cups.

So, when Taylor, a zero-waste advocate and writer for, agreed to an interview I jumped at the opportunity to ask her questions about her zero-waste lifestyle and blog.

Friday Favourites

Happy Friday!

If you missed last week's Friday Favourites post you can check it out here. The choices I made for that post were completely inspired by the natural and zero-waste movement that is occurring right now. It is something that has become an interest of mine and I'm very excited to explore the changes I make in my lifestyle towards those goals on this blog. If this is something your interested in as well expect more of that content!

This week I'm sharing with you a blog I've grown to love since I started blogging, my current favourite book, a yummy food find, and a Youtube channel I watch during my downtime.

Book Review - The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

I recently finished the book The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold and as part of my 101 Things in 1001 Days Challenge I promised to review every single book I read over the next two years! It's a hefty goal, especially if you read a lot, but luckily I average one or two books a month. 

Exploring the grieving process of the family and friends of a 14 year old girl who had been raped and murdered, The Lovely Bones is a sad but good read. Continue reading to find out more about the book as well as my thoughts and rating.

Friday Favourites (Eco-Friendly Edition)

This week's Friday Favourite's post is all about my number-one natural and zero-waste resources (as of this moment, because the list is always growing). 

I have always felt the works of environmentalists to be important. In high school I was fortunate enough to listen to David Sazuki give a speech at St. Lawrence College. I couldn't take my eyes of the screen when I watched An Inconvenient Truth, and last year when I watched Netflix's Cowspiracy.

Be the Best Version of Yourself - What does that even mean?

You hear and read this all the time, "be the best version of yourself". But what does this even mean?

Am I not just one person, so how can I be my best version?

My interpretation of this saying is that to be the best version of yourself you have to do what is right for you and no one else. Live to the best of your potential. To be the best version of yourself you have to be aware of what that is and move forward towards that.
