Celebrate Whatever!

The Holidays are over but there’s no reason to stop celebrating small things. It’s been a tough year and we should be kind to ourselves. You survived 2020: well done! Put on pants today? That’s awesome! Checked in on a friend? You deserve extra karma points for that! Feel like you didn’t do anything worth celebrating today? Remember you are still awesome and it’s okay and normal to feel bad sometimes!⁠ πŸ’š
This was one of my best nine for 2020 on Instagram, and I updated it a little bit for 2021.⁠

Low Waste Holiday Shopping

If you’ve followed my work over the last years, you may have noticed that I’m trying to reduce my waste and live a more minimalistic life.⁠ My goal: less stuff, less waste, more quality, more adventure! ⁠

This has totally changed the way I shop. I like to call it “consciously unshopping” haha.⁠ I still shop a little bit of course, but only things that I need or know I will love and use for a long time.⁠

Hopefully this illustration will inspire you to also “shop less, but better”, starting this Holiday season. I really hope you will choose to support small and local businesses, because we need it more than ever this year!⁠

World Mental Health Day

Today is World Mental Health Day, always super important, but even more so in this crazy year. These are some of the things that are part of my mental health/self care routine. It’s something that I, like so many others, always have to be aware of, especially during the autumn months. Know that there is help available and ask for it, if you need it. Take Care.β πŸ’šπŸ’š

Super Easy Zero Waste Swaps #2

Simple zero waste swap Number 2: Carry your own zero waste kit with you.⁠
I usually have mine in a little separate bag in my backpack or bag. I have a cloth napkin and handkerchief in there, a reusable straw & spork, Γ‘nd a tiny fork because I love to get French fries. 🍟The coffee cup and stirrer I only take when I plan to get coffee, because I’m not really a big coffee drinker.⁠
I do often get some very surprised looks (and laughs) when I take my own napkin or straw out of my bag. But I don’t mind and when I explain why I do it, usually people agree that it actually makes a lot of sense. ⁠
This is just one of the many small things you can do to start reducing your waste. If everyone tries a little bit, together we can accomplish a lot! ⁠ β πŸ’š

Super Easy Zero Waste Swaps #1

Going completely zero waste can be challenging, but there are so many little things that can already make a difference. Inspired by #plasticfreejuly, I’m going to be sharing some super simple zero (or low) waste swaps on here. Like choosing an ice cream cone over a cup. It saves a single use cup and a (plastic) spoon. Extra points for bringing your own cloth napkin! Come on, you can do this! β πŸ’šπŸ¦

Celebrate Whatever!

Happy Today! I often use special days or fun holidays as inspiration for my drawings, but you really don’t need a special day or achievement to celebrate. At the moment even ordinary things can feel like a real challenge, like putting on pants or going to the supermarket. So today, be kind to yourself and celebrate the small things. It’s a day and you’re still awesome!⁠ (Even if it sometimes doesn’t feel like that.)⁠

Eat What You Want Day

If you’re looking for a reason to celebrate today and treat yourself food wise, I’m happy to let you know that today is ‘Eat What You Want Day’! πŸ˜ƒ For me that looks something like this.⁠ These are some of my absolute favorite foods and snacks. I could eat (and drink) these every day, and probably would, if it wasn’t so unhealthy to do so. What are your favorite (guilty pleasure) foods?⁣ And do you have any quarantine-cravings?⁠ πŸ˜‹πŸ«πŸ•
