I Moved // My New Apartment

Hello everybody! I wanted to show you the very first pictures of my new place. It is far from done, and I am sure I am going to move the furniture around at least four times. I am going to do a vlog during next week I think.  If you want more updates on the move then follow me on Instagram, I post way more frequently on the insta-update-function.

The Satisfaction of Refusing // How To Break Bad Consumer Habits

Hello everybody! Recently I went and met up with the lovely Bleschu.dk, an awesome Danish initiative that provides plastic free alternatives to various everyday items. We talked a lot about consumerism and how satisfying it actually is to take a step back and refuse to contribute to the culture of spontaneous purchases. I thought I would share some of these thoughts with you.

One can, quite frankly, regard the tendency of consumerism as a sort of addiction, you get a rush when you purchase a new item, however the excitement does rarely last very long. Furthermore, it is likely that most people find themselves gradually more excited when purchasing larger products and spending larger amounts money. As a result of this, we need to up the dose every once in awhile to preserve that rush of excitement. However, addictions can be broken, and the process of rewiring one’s head to look past consumerist temptations is something that can be achieved by everyone, with very little effort.

A very rare phenomenon in consumer culture is the ability to simply refuse, it sounds difficult and hard, and unnecessary since everything is always within reach, but taking time to refuse certain items and objects are, for me personally, the healthiest thing I have done in years.  Suddenly, you realise that by filling your existence with useless and materialistic things, you distance yourself further and further from actual goals and values.  The rush you get when you realise that you can walk past a sale or when you notice that you have not bought anything new in a year is a thousand times more satisfying, and it lasts way longer than any rush you have ever gotten from purchasing a trendy products.

Moving Vlogs // Second Hand Decor

Moving vlog 1 // Moving Vlog 2 // Moving Vlog 3

Hello everyone! I hope you follow me elsewhere, such as Youtube or Instagram, because this blog is so slow at the moment. I have gradually been loving the video form more and more, and I think it is such a nice way of communicating with you guys.

So, officially the blog is primarily Youtube at this point. I will have this platform open still, and naturally always keep you posted and updated whenever something happens. Gittemary.com has been my baby for so many years now, it is quite crazy. But, if you want more frequent updates, take a look at my Youtube channel instead.

Never mind, I am moving! I made three moving vlogs, in which I show you guys my belongings and kitchen equipment, I hope you like the vlogs I do, because they are so much fun to film!

Package Free Goods From A Grocery Store

Hello everybody! I know tons of people do not have access to Farmer’s Markets or greengrocers but does that mean there is no way you can do zero waste? Of course no! Last week, I picked up all of these beauties from my local grocery store, all plastic free. I also put up a little image of how I used some of the food. Even if you cannot go all the way it is so important to try.
