❤️Fill Your Cup
I used to love the “convenience” and “comfort” of tampons, until I realized they weren’t so great for the environment or my body. Tampons and pads often have irritating scents and materials, and are associated with toxic shock syndrome. A woman can use an average of 150-300 tampons or pads a year, all of which are unrecyclable, including packaging. On the other hand, the menstrual cup is made of hypoallergenic, medical grade silicone and can last up to 10 years! You can go up to 12 hours without emptying your cup because they hold much more liquid than other period products. I made the change 2-3 years ago and never looked back. 🥂 If you have any doubts about the cup’s use or benefits, DM me! I’m happy to help.
❤️Llena Tu Copa
Amaba la "conveniencia” y la "comodidad" de los tampones, hasta que me di cuenta de que no eran buenos para el medio ambiente ni para mi cuerpo. Los tampones y las toallas sanitarias a menudo tienen perfumes y materiales irritantes, y están asociados con el síndrome de shock tóxico. Una mujer puede usar un promedio de 150-300 tampones o toallas al año, de los cuales ningunos son reciclables, ni siquiera sus empaques. Al contrario, la copa menstrual está hecha de silicona hipoalergénica de grado médico y puede durar ¡hasta 10 años! Puedes estar hasta 12 horas sin vaciarla porque aguanta mucho más líquido que un tampón o una toalla. Hice el cambio hace 2-3 años y nunca miré hacia atrás. 🥂Si tienes alguna pregunta sobre su uso o beneficios, no dudes en escribirme.
My current face moisturizing routine. Sheerlume (pronounced loo-may) is an advanced formula loaded with a sophisticated proprietary blend of alpine botanicals and pure absolute essential oils. I apply to my face day and night and roll it on with my Jade Stone Facial Roller. I appreciate this roller because I have never liked touching my face which could be why I lacked care in that area and this little tool does all the hard work. It reduces eye puffiness and helps with the absorption of the moisturizer by working into the pores. My fingers are so happy to be relieved of this job. I received Sheerlume free with my Essential Reward points and have been using it for two weeks. It is light, creamy and rolls on smoothly like Kerrygold butter. It has brightened and balanced my skin tone and also works as a face primer for Savvy Minerals loose powder foundation. I’m one for simplicity and practicality so this makes doing my makeup a dream; effortless and flawless.
Kennt ihr @beerstation_ch ? Hier in der Schweiz könnt ihr Bier 🍻 so zu sagen unverpackt kaufen, indem ihr euch einen Growler oder eine Karaffe Kauft und Sie dan bei der nächsten Beer Station einfach wieder auffüllt. Finden wir eine Tolle Sache. | Did you know @beerstation_ch? Here in Switzerland you are able to buy your Beer without packaging. Just buy a growler and refill it on any beer station close to you. Love the idea.
Lets talk about periods! Since my last posts about reusable period products, and my blog post about mooncups, I've had lots of messages about where to buy such products and what I'd recommend (especially instead of menstrual cups). I use the mooncup, but also reusable cloth pads such as these beauties from @silly.panda.
These pads are handmade, comfortable, easy to use/clean, are so much better for you and the planet, and just look how beautiful l they are! 😍I do feel a bit guilty bleeding on a unicorn though 🤣 You can choose your own fabrics on the website, to suit your taste, which is another bonus in my eyes! Swipe to see how easily they fold up to store and carry around! (Btw I am not a rep for them, just a happy customer!) Also love that @silly.panda included a booklet about cervical screening! Get your #cervicalscreening ladies! I had mine in January, its fast and only slightly uncomfortable, which is nothing compared to having piece if mind 😁😉 So why go reusable?! Well, in a lifetime, on average we use well over 10,000 disposable sanitary products. And these products aren't as disposable as you may think- they take around 500 years to breakdown! So every 'disposable' sanitary product we ever used still exists! Gross right?! And all of them end up in landfills or the sea! Double gross!
Since they are typically contain plastic, are bleached and full if chemicals, they aren't exactly friendly for your vagina either 🤔
And many highstreet sanitary products are NOT vegan, they are tested on animals!!!! 😡😡😡 So ladies, lets save the world one period at a time #sillypanda#zerowasteperiod#reusableclothpads#ecoperiod#vegan#ecogirl#ecowarrior#periodhealth#zwv#lesswastewithhaste#greenerhabits#thedirtyvword#goinggreen#handmade#ditchdisposables#reusables#environmentalist#greenhabit#greenperiod#wasteless#planetguardian#planetguardians#periods#womenshealth#cervicalcancerawareness#ecofriendly#vegangirl#veganperiod
Como me voy de vacaciones y mañana me lo pasaré entre aviones, adelanto un día.
Día 5 - Los semilleros.
Es la primera vez que empiezo un huerto de 0, nunca he hecho semilleros y no sé qué va a salir de ahí.
Sé que para algunas semillas vamos un poco tarde, pero es lo que hay. El año que viene madrugaremos, como decía mi abuela.
De momento yo he seguido las instrucciones de @planetahuerto y mi chico ha seguido las suyas propias.
Me voy 15 días y él se queda al mando, si cuando vuelva las plantas son grandes sabré que a estas las ha matado 😂
De momento se quedan en el invernadero improvisado, que es el cuarto de los trastos. Al lado de la puerta de cristal, con sol y con una temperatura estable.
Crucemos los dedos.

Spring hasn’t quite sprung yet, but we’ll keep believing it’s just around the corner! #tbt to last year’s planting season with @loveandcarrots! Can’t wait to see what sprouts again soon (...assuming the ☀️ is still out there somewhere!)! #AoHCARES#urbangarden 🥕🥒🌶🍅
Definitely placing a bulk order for our new @beautycounter face wipes because my main skin problem is that I’m too tired to wash my face at night! Will also be bringing these on my next trip ✈️ Let me know if you live in Baltimore and you want free shipping on your order 😍 Or you can shop at www.beautycounter.com/AshleighGallagher or click the link in my bio 🌿

❋ Lemon ❋ For me, the practical uses of my essential oils are such a huge reason why I fell in love with them and lemon is one that I can use in so many ways – I just love it 💛 Lemon promotes health, healing, physical energy and purification and its fragrance is perfecto! I love to rub a drop between my hands and take deep breaths just to lift my mood 🤲🏼
Some ways to use your lemon essential oil:
🍋 I know I bang on about using these oils in my skincare, but I am seriously obsessed! I also use lemon in my face cleanser and my skin feels amazing – and I am saving some serious 💰 on the exy skincare I used to buy for myself! 🙌🏼
🍋 I add this to my water bottle every day. Lemon provides cleansing and digestive benefits, it’s detoxifying for the liver and stimulates the metabolism. You can also add to warm water or mineral water in place of lemon wedges.
🍋 It’s also detoxifying to our environment so it’s SO good for DIY cleaning products, including in surface cleaner, furniture polish and leather protector. Seriously, how amazing is it that you can use your oils to replace all the chemical products in your home 🧡
🍋 Lemon essential oil can be used as a substitute for lemons in your cooking (I mean, it is extracted straight from lemon rind, so makes sense!) – I love to add to hummus and I to olive oil with some salt and pepper to make a yummy salad dressing. It’s great in desserts too🍮 It’s also really cost effective – 250 drops to one bottle, and you only need 1-2 per use – that’s equivalent to a whole lotta lemons!
🍋 When diffused, Lemon is very uplifting and energizing and has been shown to help improve mood. It also kills airborne pathogens – such a diverse oil!
