Sustainable Sundays

Hello, my dears!

I made it back! I told myself to stop fiddling so much with FGF as I had to remind myself that I am not a web designer and that I SHOULD leave it to a pro to get the it all right. So, the revamping of FGF is in progress, so keep your eyes peeled for a progressive makeover (Much like my weight-loss program, ey?).

So, as I promised that I would get back in time for Sustainable Sundays. Yes, I’m also aware that it’s Easter and Saturday has been a pretty busy night, with all the travelling and all, so I decided to slouch in my printed silk kaftan, let my hair down and watch Sex and the City. And if that wasn’t glam enough, I wore bright blue leopard print unmentionables! Yes. Unmentionables.

Now, I’m not that kind of girl who watches it religiously, but when you’re in a long distance relationship, sh*t gets crazy. Kevin’s absence has turned me to the dark side, filled with macarons, ridiculous amounts of chick flicks and a nail polish obsession. Just so we’re clear, I’m not this much of a girly girl. I’m generally content watching reruns of Battlestar Galactica and Family Guy, but these few months…It’s just been an estrogen overload. *chuckles*

But enough girl talk and let’s get down to Sustainability. So, I don’t know about most of you, but I find that Pinterest is the reason why I am able to start keeping up and posting more frequently.

And if you are a regular/obsessive/down-right psycho Pinner, you may have stumbled upon this little thing that got me excited.

I had no idea that you could recycle your old flip flops and old clothes to make your very own pair of sandals! Clicking the image on Pinterest led me to A Little Tipsy with the all the things you need to make this. Apart from an old pair of flip flops and fabric, you just need a knife, so good glue and clamps. Now, I’m pretty sure everyone has those things at home, and even if you don’t, it won’t cost you an arm or a leg.

For the full instructions, do check out A Little Tipsy’s page here.

I also found that you can also buy some handmade ones on Etsy and I think I’m salivating at the designs. I currently wear 1-inch espadrilles to the office. Now, I wonder if they’ll accept these in the office.

How about them homemade sandals, huh?

I’m afraid I have to keep it brief for today. I need to kickstart some massive preparations for the Easter BBQ Lunch at my cousin’s house and I’m making a casserole of baked mashed potatoes with onions, cabbage and bacon. Ooooh, yes! That’s some good stuff there.

So, enjoy your Easter weekend everyone. It’s been a busy one for me, so I’m going to marvel at this little picture of colorful chicks and aww until I pass out!

Much love,
