DIY 7

There’s so many ways to become a DIY God or Goddess, whether it’s Cleaning products (just in time for spring eh?!), beauty products, makeup, baking, sewing or up-cycling, these are all ways that you can really make a difference. My favourite DIY projects are beauty and cleaning related (I’m starting to learn how to use my sewing machine-I only bought 6 years ago!).

Learning DIY, however large or small, is a really effective way to reduce the amount of waste and toxic chemicals you are responsible for. I also think it’s a great way to spend some down time, and really relax, de-stress and forget the world for a few hours, and once you’re done you feel a great sense of achievement! I must warn you, that feeling becomes addictive, and will leave you wanting more!
