That's also the main reason why we love Boohoo's clothing a ton.
We have made a list of recent listed item from their website that we love
and we hope that you will like it as much as we do.


The first one is this: 70's Sunflower dress
It's so cute and summerly and oldschool. 
A really groovy piece that we just love!


The next item is this Sia 70's dress
It's in some beautiful colors,
that would be a great fall item.
The shape of it is also great,
and the longer sleeves will keep you warm in the fall season.


It was love as first sight with this: Printed Duster
It's so heavenly beautiful that we don't really understand the price
The duster makes us speechless, so here's the: 


We needed a jumpsuit on this list
and this jumpsuit is just wow!
and the colors and patterns on it is so beautiful.
It would look cute with a kimono as cover up over the arms,
to stay warm this autumn too.


This Paisley Midi Dress was the first one to catch our eye.
We love the pattern and the calm blue colors.
Another piece that's perfect for fall because of 
the long sleeves.


Tie dye has been in for quite some time,
It's also a great fall piece paired with some tights.
And a hat would complete the outfit.


The last item for today is this beautiful paisley top
once again we found a lovely fall piece
it will look cute with almost anything:
no matter if you wear a skirt or pants.

We hope you liked this list of recent added things from boohoo.

Replace your paper towels with reusable rags.
This is something we all know by now, but sometimes tend to forget.
So next time you run out of paper towels, get yourself some reusable rags.


Pack your to-go meals with reusable sandwich bags.
We must admit we didn't even knew about these sandwich bags,
but look how cute they are while they are saving the planet!
Here's a link to where you can find some: Link


Get yourself some non-Disposable or biodegradable dinnerware.
An example could be this bamboo dinnerware as you see on the photo.
It's Eco friendly and very cute to look at.

Say no to plastic bags, instead always bring your own shipping bags.

5 Easy & Healthy Lunch Ideas

Since summer is about to be over we thought it would be a great time
to share some easy and healthy lunch ideas with you.
Here's 5 of them, perfect to bring to school or work with you.
These can of course also be used as dinner meal ideas.


Sweet & Sour Broccoli Salad

You need:
About ½ cup of sweet and sour sauce 
3 small stalks of broccoli, cleaned, cut into small florets and blanched
1 TB of sesame oil
black sesame seeds
a handful of roasted cashews
and 2 stalks of sliced green scallions.

Spoon out 1/4 a cup of sweet and sour sauce in a large glass bowl. Next add the broccoli and mix. Make sure the florets are evenly coated with the sauce. Drizzle with a tablespoon of sesame oil and mix. Toss in your preferred amount of sesame seeds and a little bit more sweet and sour sauce if desired. Throw in a handful of roasted cashews and mix. Finish with some scallions and give it one last stir.  
Plate on a large plate or in a glass container and drizzle additional sauce if needed. This makes about 3 ½ cups and leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Mini Frittata Brunch Bar

You need:
large eggs
cup cooked Mexican chorizo
cup spinach, finely chopped
leek, sliced lengthwise (green parts discarded) and thinly sliced into half moons
cup shredded mozzarella
pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
tablespoon fresh oregano


  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Heat a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil in a medium skillet and add the leeks. Season lightly with salt and pepper and saute until slightly browned, 3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • To the pan, add the chorizo and cook until until it's softened, 5 minutes.
  • Pour the eggs into a non-stick muffin tin.
  • Sprinkle the leeks evenly into each eggy mixture.
  • Followed by a good dollop of the chorizo.
  • Go ahead and throw that spinach in there too.
  • It would be wise to sprinkle some cheese and oregano on top of each frittata.
  • Throw the whole thing into an oven, preheated to 375°F.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes, checking at the 8-minute mark. They should be puffed up and set in the middle. Let cool a few minutes and serve at your next brunch! (Source:  Tablespoon)

    Amazing Cabins From All Over The World

    Cabins is something we love here on Earthychildren.
    It's an escape from life and often a place where you get closer to nature.
    We have found 5 cabins that's worth to have a closer look at.

    This first cabin is placed in Uusimaa in Finland
    It's basically a glasshouse right next to the sea.
    Here's an opportunity to wake up to an extraordinary view.

    Amazing treehouse in Gran Paradiso in the National Park near Cogne in Italy.
    It looks tiny, but amazingly cute and close to nature.
    That view must be breathtaking as well!

    The surroundings of this hut near Mt. Aspiring in New Zealand is just breathtaking.
    I wouldn't spend much time inside that cabin, I would be too busy
    getting all lost in the amazing view!

    I couldn't help myself from sharing this small alternative cabin as well.
    It's based in Berlin in Germany and it's just so cute.
    Looks like it's build by a lot of old used parts and it has a beautiful view.
    I can imagine this must be an inspiring place for a painter. 

    This might be my favorite one!
    It's placed in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
    It's very earthy I can't imagine how stress would be possible spending some time out there.

     If you feel like these 5 cabins weren't enough,
    and you want to read an entire book about amazing cabins,
    then here's the book "Cabin Porn"

    First Step To Zero Waste - Get A New Toothbrush

    We decided that our first blog post should be a zero waste tip!

    Today we are looking at the toothbrush, something pretty much everyone
    all over the world use every day. These are 99% of the time made by plastic.

    Here's 4 quick reasons why plastic is bad:

    1. There is a lot of it.
    According to a study by the Ocean Conservatory in 2015, plastic bags came in second to discarded cigarette butts as the most-identified type of trash.
    2. Rampant waste.
    Items like plastic packaging, bags and bottles are thrown away every day, and end up in trash sites as well as in forests, creeks, rivers, seas, and oceans around the world. 

    3. Doesn't break down.
    Plastic is not biodegradable, but photodegradable. And in reality, most plastic does not ever disappear, but becomes long-lasting "plastic dust". 

    4. Danger to aquatic life.
    Every square mile of ocean has 46,000 pieces of plastic floating in it. That is why over a million sea birds, whales, seals, dolphins, sea turtles, and so on die from plastic debris that ends up in our oceans and seas. 
    (Read the rest of the article on: Creeklife

    So here's our advise to you: 

    The next time your plastic toothbrush is ready to be replaced with a new one, invest in a toothbrush that isn't made out of plastic.
    Here's some of the options we would recommend: 

    This toothbrush is from: Ecobamboo is made out of bamboo, it's 100% vegan. The bamboo is brought from private farmers, so it's not taken from the bamboo pandas eat. It's a great alternative for the plastic toothbrush.
    This is an alternative to the first bamboo toothbrush, it's from: It's basically the same concept, so you can choose the one which is located closest to you, are the cheapest one, that's your decision.
    And the last option that we have found online is this one from: Hydrophil. Still the same concept, this shops is located in Germany. 

    We really hope you liked our first blog post, and will consider purchasing a bamboo toothbrush when your current one needs a replacement. It might not feel like a big change, but imagine if everyone on earth changed their plastic toothbrushes! it would make a big difference!
