Colorado Couple Living an Alternative Lifestyle: Tiny House Tiny Footprint

After a few months living small, I started talking to others who were living an alternative lifestyle and was inspired by their stories.

Recently I have written some alternative lifestyle stories involving permaculture, nomadic living and going zero waste, but really these “alternative” lifestyles are the gateway to freedom, a higher quality of living and healing for ourselves and our planet. So are they really alternatives? As we have entered into Spring, this is a time to RENEW by detoxing your life and home. I hope through these stories you are able to find happiness in a simpler more conscious lifestyle.

The Beekeeper’s Baby: Inspiring Mother and Vegan Soap Maker

I love finding artists, crafters and specialty product makers on social media, Instagram being my favorite right now. Rette @thebeekeepersbaby is one of those finds that make me happy, because I love handmade natural vegan products and well she makes vegan soaps that I can’t get enough of. I love making my own products, but soaps have never been a product I found easy or felt like I could properly source the quality of ingredients I would need, so thank you Rette. I also love finding women who are in business for themselves, whether they have a physical place of business, their own website or like Rette, an Etsy account. She is rocking as a mother and wife, while creating self care products for us! I recently interviewed her asking questions about why she makes her products vegan, how her passions have benefited her spending time with the family and what other creative or healthy passions she loves. Check it out. Read more
