SmallCool Top 20 🗳🏭 OMG Fabriksen is through to round two! Thank you so much for your support and votes in the first round. The top 50 was filled with cool homes from all over the world (17 different countries no less!), and I’m super proud that Fabriksen is through to this second round. The votes from last round do not carry over, so we’re all starting at 0. Again, you have to register to vote, so if you did do so last round you’re good to go. And please know as much as I appreciate your support I totally understand that not everyone wants to vote. I’m cool with you not voting if you’re cool with me harping on about this until voting closes on Friday 20th May. I’ll make sure the link is in my story. ✨🏭✨ #fabriksen #fabrikkleilighet #loftapartment #homedecor #loftliving #midimalism #modernliving #sustainableliving #interiør #scandinavianliving #scandinavianstyle #scandinavianinterior #nordiskinteriør #nordicstyle #nordicinterior #nordicliving #mezzanine #artathome #indoorplantsdecor #booksandplants #bookshelves #bookshelf #shelfie #homelibrary #bibliophile #livingwithbooks #apartmenttherapy #smallcool

WEEKEND BRUNCHING WITH THE BOYF 🍴💕🌱 I was severely hungover Saturday morning and in need of vegan brunch. Decided on Aesthete in Walkley, Sheffield and was incredible !! We ordered… ▫️The Avo Whip but made vegan which consisted of Whipped avocado on sourdough with za’atar seed crunch, pink onion pickle, Italian tomatoes, vegan feta, avocado pesto oil and extra mushrooms ▫️& the Breakfast Eggs Poutine - sautéed potatoes with cheese, poached eggs, hollandaise, spring onions So incredible, my avocado on toast couldn’t match this amazingness 😍 Ps. Never drinking an excessive amount of free white wine again 😅

🌠 Mulch Magic 🌲 This weekend we finally tackled a project we've been eager to do since the day we moved in: re-mulched the orchard, which was in desperate need of a refresh! And what a HUGE difference it made 😍 I'm so freakin' sore, but it was totally worth it! 💪🏼We also added a little pathway to the main garden space with a few pavers we had leftover from that project. Swipe through for before and afters. . 🌏 Mulch is KEY for soil and plant health. It aids in moisture retention, insulates plant roots from temperature extremes, keeps microbes and other members of living soil food web alive and happy, reduces erosion, evaporation and runoff, and is a fantastic way to organically suppress weeds. . 😷 While mulch is great for soil, it may not be so good for you. We masked up while moving all of this because a) its a super messy job with dusty wood bits going airbrone and all over us b) there can be a lot of gnarly bacteria and fungal spores in mulch, wood chips, compost and soil. SO many of you reached out to share stories about you or your loved ones getting Legionnaires disease, Valley Fever, other gnarly respiratory infections, hospitalizations, and even one death from working with mulch.... 💔 so be careful folks! . We had 19 yards of local "walk on bark" delivered. Its like a combo of wood chips, bark and shredded bark, and supposed to mimic a forest floor. We used about 17.5 yards of it, applied about 3 to 4 inches deep. Before the mulch, we also added a few scoops of compost around the base of each tree too. Be sure to keep mulch pulled back at least a few inches away from the tree trunks! . I've written a few articles on mulch: one that covers mulching 101 (basics, best practices, FAQ, mulch for garden beds vs pathways or flower beds, etc) along with a post that compares the pros and cons of 8 popular types of garden mulch (e.g. straw vs wood chips vs compost) so if you're curious to learn more, simply Google "Homestead and Chill mulch" and you'll see em! ✌🏼 . #homesteadandchill #mulch

I just realised I never posted this vest! I scrambled to finish it in time for the market a few weeks ago and I ended up finishing it on the first day and sold it on the second! I quickly took these photos in the morning on the second day (as you can see the tag is already attached) because I love this vest so much I had to have it documented! The colours remind me of Aperol Spritz and were inspired by @caoculator 🍹 Pattern: #PatchMeIfYouCanVest by me (link in bio)

Credit @fiverodplot Turning the compost heap 🌎 This heap is now about a year old so it was great to be able to remove the front panel, see the different layers of compost and give it some air. 🤎 The pile was full of red wigglers, nature’s ultimate composting worm that can eat roughly half their weight everyday! 🪱 Once turned, I added in some wood chip, a great source of carbon and balanced it out with nitrogen rich kitchen waste. I’ve kept some of the finished compost aside to use on my beds. 🙌 . . . . . #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #nodig #soilhealth #organicgrowing #growyourown #gyo #marketgarden #kitchengarden #gardeninglife #backyardveggies #veggiepatch #sustainableliving #climatechange #regenerativeagriculture #gardeninspiration #greenthumb #humanswhogrowfood #ediblegarden #homemade #composting #sustainablesprout #natureisbeautiful #eatwhatyougrow #diy #compost #growingfood #vegpatch #urbanfoodspaces

Did you know breast milk has antiseptic, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties? It’s called liquid gold for a reason😁 We all know about the amazing nutritional and immunity-boosting benefits of breastmilk for feeding babies, but what about other surprising practical uses? How to use for milk bath: ➖ Add 150–300 mL of breast milk ➖ Let your baby soak for 10-15 minutes ➖ Take baby out and pat dry How to use for eczema, cuts, scrapes, insect bites and sunburn: ➖ Drip some breast milk on a cotton ball and apply it to the affected area. 📄: A 2015 International Journal of Dermatology paper concluded: “The results of the present study suggest that the human breast milk can improve infant atopic eczema with the same results as 1% hydrocortisone ointment” How to use for baby acne: ➖ Soak a cotton ball in breast milk and softly pat it on your baby’s face. The natural ingredients in the milk may help clear the skin. How to use for diaper rash: ➖Soak Breastmilk onto a cotton ball and apply to rash. 📄: A 2013 paper in the Journal of Pediatric Dermatology found that breast milk was as effective in treating diaper rash as hydrocortisone. How to use for nasal congestion: ➖ Drop a few drops of breast milk into nose. Breastmilk is already buffered, just like saline, so it won’t burn if you put it up the nose. It works just as well as saline to break up mucus too! How to use for clogged tear duct: ➖ Drop a few drops of breast milk into the part of the eye that’s irritated. 📄: A small study conducted in Spain retrospectively compared antibiotic drops and breast milk as treatments for blocked tear ducts in newborns — The blocked tear ducts cleared up faster with breast milk than with antibiotics, and breast milk appeared to be completely safe. ⬇️ MAMA USE: ➖Make up remover ➖Facial cleanser ➖Sexual lubricant ➖Treating sore nipples ➖Cooking . . . TAG A BESTIE⤵️ What have you used breast milk for other than feeding your baby?
