Make it green!

Apparently blogs can be bad for the environment too! Based on the views they receive, they can produce a certain amount of CO2 (click here to know exactly how and how much), which means that if we want a greener and healthier planet, we should get our blogs greener too. So when I found out about this initiative years ago, on the German website Mach’s Grün, I hopped in with my old blog. What they basically did was planting a cute new tree in a forest, just because I wrote a post about it. Completely free + environmentally friendly, it’s a win-win.

Now I learn from this lovely blog I’ve just discovered that the project has expanded to other countries too – unfortunately, not in mine, but still.. So, since I got a new blog, and my tree in Germany is already planted, why not get another one somewhere? And you get a nice badge. In lots of languages. What more can you ask for? Probably only a photo taken of your little lovely tree.

I can’t wait to have my own apartment so that I can make it eco-friendly, but in the meanwhile, why not start with my space on the internet? Check out the Green Gestures project, and get your cute little tree planted!

The weather outside was so unfortunate yesterday – it started to snow.. man, I don’t like winter! Couldn’t it always be warm and sunny? – that I decided to cheer me up with some colorful flowers and tropical flavored tea. I took a couple of pics because it was all so matchy-matchy. Read more

A photographer a day.. Hans Feurer

..keeps the doctor away.

As in the future I’m planning to be a photographer (or at least a better one than I am now), lately I’ve been studying camera gears and history of photography, but I’ve also been trying to know major photographers’ work, so that I can get inspired by true artists and develop my own personal taste in pictures, together with a proper technical knowledge.

So I wanted to share something by a photographer that I really adore, Hans Feurer. Read more

Easier said than done

So, giving old clothes to charity wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be – apparently nothing has been in the past few days! After three wrong addresses, one trip to the Devil’s Triangle of my city (a massive black hole of one way streets and bus lanes where you can’t do anything but get lost) and an almost car crash, I managed to do my daily good deed. All of this while my granny was calling me on the phone because she has house-heating-induced anxiety, which means that her boiler works perfectly, but for some weird reason she’s convinced it breaks and readjusts all by itself several times a day.

But it feels good to have a room free from bags of old rugs – and for a good cause!
