Our Minimalism Journey So Far
Minimalism is different for everyone. There is no one box fits all. For me, it’s about creating space in our lives for the things that really matter.

Homemade Natural Deodorant Tips from the Experts
Switching to natural beauty products can be a frustrating journey. Just when you think you’ve finally cracked it, it all seems to go wrong again. My previous... http://www.gypsysoul.co.uk/homemade-natural-deodorant-tips-from-the-experts
I've just signed to show my support for the creation of bottle deposit return schemes across the UK.
It would mean a lot to me if you’d add your name - you can sign here: https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/bottle-deposit-return-ef
Every day in the UK, 35 million plastic bottles are used and discarded. Almost half of these are not recycled and many of them end up in our oceans - killing marine life and threatening fragile ecosystems.
Deposit return schemes work by placing a small deposit on a plastic bottle, which you get back when you return it.
The more bottles that are returned, the more can be re-used or recycled, reducing the amount that ends up as litter, in our oceans and in landfill.
It only takes a minute to get involved.

Every child deserves the chance to grow up to be whatever they want to be. But in the developing world, cancer robs children of the simple gift of growing up every 3 minutes.
That’s why I’m supporting @WorldChildCancer to give the #giftofgrowingup.

Here's a snapshot of what we got up to today...
#LazySundays are the best. Having a rest before our adventure starts again. Our first destination today is Brixham.
These all look amazing! I'd be quite happy to eat any of them
It's amazing the things you notice when you slow down and actually take in your surroundings #Torquay
Excited and slightly nervous about our upcoming weekend adventure. We're going on our first adventurous arts event in Torbay.
The Shorely is sending me and the kids on The Tale, an immersive arts trail from Torquay to Paignton and Brixham
'A unique kind of arts trail, The Tale guides you on a journey of discovery around the coast of Torbay.'
'All the artworks & performances in The Tale have been created for locations across Torbay inspired by Philip Hoare. Exact locations & details of the works are kept under wraps until you start the journey.'
It's all quite mysterious and I can't wait to see what it's all about!
You can follow our adventure this weekend on my Gypsy Soul Facebook & Twitter.
I'll also be doing a takeover of The Shorely Instagram account which you can find here - https://www.instagram.com/the_shorely #TheShorely #TaleTorbay
