Motivational podcasts you need to listen to!

Motivational podcasts you need to listen to - ByMeryl

Podcasts don’t get enough credit in my opinion. I personally am a big fan and love listening to them while I work, clean, cook, workout, remove my make-up; basically all the time. I love how they can bring inspiration or fun to your day without taking up any extra time (YES for multitasking). If you are looking for some great motivational podcasts? then please read along.  View Post

Fast fashion has been a hot topic recently. The rate at which we go through clothes seems to be taking a toll on the environment. Now I am not claiming to be an expert on environmental problems nor do I claim to live my life as green as possible and yes I love fashion and buying new clothes. I do however have been trying to make more sustainable fashion choices on my shopping sprees. With these three simple tips I try to make a difference and so can you! View Post

And then you have Celiac disease

Celiac disease - ByMeryl

By the title you can probably already guess that this post is going to be on Celiac disease, which I was diagnosed with 3 months ago. I have been wanting to write about it for a while but I found it hard to find the right tone, not to down, not to upbeat (because then I would be pretending I am already okay with it), informative and still personal. I decided not to pressure myself into writing a proper post but just to focus on my story and advice, so be warned for a messy post.

An interior update with plants

An interior update with plants - ByMeryl

-A little disclaimer this post was written before my move, an update on the move and my life will follow soon.-

If you told me two years ago that my room would be filled with plants, I wouldn’t have believed you. I always assumed that I could not keep them alive and that they would be too much work. I have to admit that I still struggle with the keeping them alive part (my boyfriend wants to buy me the book “how not to kill your plants”) but I do love the fresh feel they bring to a room. So in this post I am sharing my new additions and favorite small houseplants.  View Post
