Tumbling Waste into Compost

This year we’ve been enjoying our backyard and getting more and more into gardening. We’ve also been making changes in our home to become more eco friendly. At home composting just seemed like the next logical step to take. Not only does it provide healthy, nutrient rich and balanced compost for the garden, but it is also good for the environment. Although you might think that plant matter and food waste would decompose in the landfill, it is not properly aerated to decompose scraps properly. Instead they generate Methane, which can hold 25 times more heat than carbon dioxide!

PinkBlush Clothing Review

These past couple of years I haven’t invested in many new clothes at all. Being pregnant the twice kind of puts a damper on the whole shopping experience. It’s difficult enough finding flattering maternity wear, but also just as difficult to find comfortable postpartum wear that doesn’t involve sweat pants. Like many other expectant mothers I’ve talked to, I was hesitant to spend money on maternity wear that I knew I would only wear for a few months of my life.

Sunnyvale’s Best Boba Cafe, Boba Drive!

With so much competition in the Bay Area boba tea Market, you need to be special to stand out from the crowd. We love Sunnyvale’s newest addition, Boba Drive! They make all of our favorite milk teas and offer non-dairy creamer, fresh milk, almond milk, and oat milk! Their variety of fruit-infused drinks is what keeps us coming back. Boba Drive offers a wide selection of fruit teas made with house-made syrups that they blend from real fruit.

Tofu Tomato Poke with Mori-Nu Silken Tofu

With summer in full swing, our garden is thriving with heirloom tomatoes. I’m constantly thinking of new dishes to utilize them and showcase their beautiful colors and flavors. When Mori-Nu Silken Tofu approached us to create a recipe for them I was so excited and had the perfect dish in mind. I’ve always enjoyed tofu dishes and love how versatile and easy tofu is to work with. It’s wonderful raw or cooked and is perfect for hot or cold weather recipes.

Summertime Outdoor Living with Rove Concepts

Summertime for us means BBQs and time with family and friends outdoors. We’ve been wanting to upgrade our outdoor spaces and some nice patio furniture can do just the trick! We wanted simple, modern, and comfortable furniture so we turned to Rove Concepts. We love the quality of their indoor furniture and their outdoor products didn’t disappoint!

Going Green!

Over the past years we have made small steps in our daily lives to become more aware of our impact on the planet and try to cut down on waste. Although our time on earth is not permanent, the choices that we make do make a difference to future generations. Whether it is cutting out single use plastic straws, or bringing refillable bottles along instead of using single use cups, every little thing makes a difference. Of course we aren’t perfect and occasionally kick ourselves for forgetting to bring our stainless steel boba straw along, but we are trying our best! Below are some products and changes we have made to our daily lifestyle to lessen our footprint on the planet. We hope it can spark a little change and give you some easy ideas to go green. We would love to hear what things you have done to go green as well!
