Hello everyone! In my last video I showed you my favourite dish, and not too long ago I talked about it Instagram as well. Now, I thought I would share the recipe with you. Don’t get your hopes up if you are expecting something insane and complex, this is super super simple and I make it when I don’t feel like cooking a lot. Here goes.
You will need:
- 1 tablespoon of plant based butter
- 1 tablespoon of flour
- Vegetable broth and water
Boil some rice, any rice you like will do. While the rice is boiling make the sauce. Melt the butter, I used plant based butter. When the butter is melted pour in a spoonful of flour. When that is doughy, add curry and what other spices you like. I always add pepper, , salt, thai curry, paprika, turmeric and nutmeg. Mix it until smooth. Add water with vegetable broth, just bit at a time. Bam amazing curry sauce. You can add a salad, falafel or any kind of side dish you like. This dish is super versatile, which is why I love it.

Hello everyone! I thought I would share a few tips on how to avoid plastic when purchasing school supplies. There are several options here, firstly I recommend you check out your local thrift store, I find tons of craft and school supplies that way. You can also target stores that specialise in plastic free alternatives, it is seriously heaven to browse those stores. I have mentioned Monomeer a lot in the past, because they have my favourite dental tabs, turns out they have a huge selection of office supplies, yay!
As my next semester is starting soon, it seems quite handy to have a few bits of school supplies. Especially the wooden stabler is something I am looking forward to. Many professors will not accept papers if they are not stabled, so in that case, this is pretty perfect! I take very few notes on actual paper, as I usually use my laptop, but the wooden ruler and pencil sharpener is primarily for my art supplies. I found my pencils second hand, but if you are less lucky, check out their plastic free pencil selection.
Hello everyone! Yesterday I uploaded my first actual wedding planning video, and took you guys through some of the things that we have already decided on. We want our wedding to be zero waste and I want to take you guys through the planning. I asked you guys for ideas and inspiration and you truly never disappoint. You posted so many amazing ideas from your own wedding or prom or what not and they are so extremely useful. I am looking forward to going into way more detail with the planning in my next video. All good vibes from here and lots of love!
Hello everyone! I thought I would check in today and share some of the funnier second hand items I have hanging around my flat. I have made it my mission to not buy new things, especially when it comes to decor and knick knacks. I don’t really like new things, they have no stories to tell. What you see here is a combination of amazing thrift store finds, things more than ten years old and odd stuff I have acquired from others. Both me and my fiancee keep our uni books in old wooden crates from the 60’s. They are much nicer than whatever crap you find in Ikea, just saying. My craft supplies are kept in an old little shelf system from my father-in-law’s garage. I think it was originally used for screws and nails and such.
I love when my things not only look raw and worn down, but when they actually are in such a condition. One of my biggest pet peeves is new furniture that looks old on purpose, when it has that “vintage look” – just go and buy second hand instead. I don’t think I will ever understand this trend. Well, this turned into a rant and for that I am sorry, but I hope you enjoyed my small projects. I will very soon pull my ass together and film a proper house tour, promise! In the meantime you can check out my other posts about decor and interior, they are all linked above! Good vibes!
Hello everybody! Recently I finally got to dry soap berries, a completely eco friendly, compostable and natural laundry detergent. I have seen several places where I got have bought them, unfortunately all of these places had them covered in plastic, which, as you may know, is kind of a turnoff for me. Finally I found a site that carried plastic free ones, Bleschu.dk that is. If you do not live in Denmark, when check out That Red House. I just made a video in which I go through several options for more eco friendly laundry routines, but soap berries is far the most amazing one. Check out my video, if you want to know more about how to use these berries.
