Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog.

My name is Magda and I am on an endless journey to a more sustainable lifestyle. I am mostly pant-based (with an occasional cake without giving too much thought to whether it’s vegan or vegetarian if it looks too good to resist), an absolute addict to making your-own (food, cosmetics, home-care products, you name it).

I have two beautiful daughters, almost independent now, a full-time job and a constant art of balancing home finances on my shoulders. We live in London, which you may think may not help on my journey, as much as living in any other big city, compared to a countryside. I love this city but also love escaping it as much as I can for mini-travels and holidays.

I want to share with you what I have learnt so far. How I balance ditching plastic, cooking from scratch, trying to live less-waste and organising family holidays and mini-travels, be it a day or a weekend outside London or kayaking and hiking abroad. I have tried going zero-waste, being debt-free (believe me those two not always go hand in hand!) and on the way made sacrifices I wasn’t sure where good for either my family, myself or the environment. It was too much and I simply couldn’t stick with it long enough. So I chose a balanced approach. After all, it’s all about balance in life, isn’t it 🙂

I hope you will find some of it useful.
