I got a van! I've been searching for ages for something to start my van life adventures in and I came across this 2006 Ford Econoline E150 which seemed like the perfect travel buddy! Super stoked to start customising this conversion (there’s definitely going to be a bee theme🐝) and go on some awesome US road trips! For now, swipe to see my beautiful quarantine view.
IT'S WORLD BEE DAY!🐝 Here are 7 ways you can help save the bees. #1 Plant native and bee-friendly flowers in your garden! #2 Set up a bee home in your garden! #3 Leave out a dish of fresh water full of corks for bees to drink from! #4 Buy local and organic produce when out shopping! #5 Avoid using pesticides in your own garden! #6 If you eat honey, buy from local beekeepers! #7 Spread awareness about how to help save the bees and why they're so darn important for our planet! I'll be exploring the ways we can help save the bees in more detail over the coming months! In the meantime, the next time you spot a bee, take a moment to watch them at work. It's hard not to develop a compassionate attitude towards bees when you see how hard our adorable little friends work to help our planet and give us loads of amazing food! #savethebees
Oh hey! This self-isolating is kinda wild ey. Hope everyone’s doing ok. I’ve started to find little hacks from spending a lot of my time living in a school bus. My first hack was realising I could brush my hair on the roof after a shower to prevent my hair getting everywhere in the bus. Stay tuned for more tiny home hacks coming soon. We have a bit of time at home on our hands haha.
I remember I started saying the phrase “save the bees” back in 2017 without really knowing too much about why the phrase was a thing. I assumed it was probably climate change related. But I didn't realise how important those lil black and gold critters were until I started looking more into it. Bees pollinate a third of the food we eat and 80% of flowering plants. Strawberries, apples, almonds and so many more wonderful foods all depend on the pollination of bees. Basically 1 out of every 3 bites of food we eat is thanks to bees! Bees contribute massively to our economy too. Apparently it'd cost farmers in the UK £1.8 billion per year to manually pollinate their crops. In the US the honey bee is responsible for $15 billion of agricultural crops each year. I’m not saying the world would collapse without bees, but the more you research it, the more it kinda sounds like the world would collapse without bees, so I thought it’d be cool to explore the best ways we can help save our adorable friends from extinction! I’m definitely no expert, and will be learning as I go, but I’m super grateful for everyone who sends me bee related content and helps me learn more, and everyone who engages with the content and helps spread the message. I’m excited to create some content around such a worthy cause and hopefully make a small difference. And I’m also grateful for this awesome T-shirt my friend Johnnie sent me! Peace and love. #savethebees
Welcome to the least photogenic skoolie tour on Instagram. When I knew I'd be living in a school bus I was like Cool! I'll get a bunch of awesome photos making the inside look beaut! I pictured extravagant plants, correctly positioned fairy lights and colourful cushions. But I knew that wasn't me. I knew that one day I'd look back on my social channels and see all the memories from my past, and a picture perfect lifestyle isn't one of them. But clothes randomly scattered everywhere and a surf van clock that's stuck on the time 4:20 is.
Here's a lil tour of the Bluebird Penthouse. A 1950s caravan in Devon that has been beautifully renovated with the awesome addition of a hot tub inside a vintage Land Rover!
Here's a lil tour of this human-sized beehive that you can stay at in Devon, England!
I feel old even writing this but I swear the older I get the more I crave simple living. I’ve been trying to factor into my life more short getaways where I can be in nature, away from crowds of people and noise and I've found it really helpful in realising how little I need in life to be content. I’ve also found myself buying a lot less stuff recently, and when I do, I'm trying to buy things that support smaller brands who are on the path to help creating a better planet for us all. That bag sitting next to me on the floor is by a cool brand I came across called @m24bags . It's made out of used truck tarpaulin (the side of lorries) and each truck tarp bag is hand cut and stitched in the UK and is completely unique. The handles are even made from the straps on the truck. For the most part, I think we live in a society which hasn't given us the power to avoid consuming completely, however we do have the power to consume more mindfully, and it's something I'm certainly not perfect at but something I'm trying to work on and get better at. Also if anyone has any other cool eco-friendly products they've come across please send them over!
