Sunday! Time for another few topics you may use at will the week to come.
The theme for this week’s topics is inspired by others. Yea, I’m more or less stealing topics I’ve recently come across.
First one may just be my favorite:
WOMAN CRUSH WEDNESDAY. Mentioned in passing by Rhian Hy in one of her recent uploads. The idea is to write about a woman you love for some reason. (..but it can’t be just because she’s attractive. Because I say so. Because it’s boring.)
There is clearly something wrong with my feed because I’ve never seen any posts on this topic, but the idea appeals to me IMMENSELY.
THIS WEEK’S FAVORITES. Weekly feature at The Mustards. Who doesn’t like listing favorites? If you want to make it extra challenging, have a theme.
FIVE DAYS OF ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS. I’ve been thinking of ThaTaylaa‘s 15 days of foundation, which is such a fun idea, but, as mentioned, I’m in the middle of Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything, and I’m not in a encourage-consumption type of mood.
Instead, let’s take five days and reflect on our consumption.
Could be anything, finding out where your food comes from, challenging yourself to only buy food that’s locally produced for a week, investigating if you can switch to a more environmentally friendly option, cut something out that isn’t strictly necessary, maybe use and review an environmentally friendly product each day, a list of things you do that you feel guilty about, spend a day reflecting on things you already do for the environment—it’s simply an exercise in awareness.
Optional: split it into several posts and/post over a longer period of time.
I also want to suggest starting to prep for a classic empties post. Not necessarily the usual makeup/beauty empties, anything that came in a package will do. Gum? Tea? Lentil crisps? To make keeping garbage bearable, find yourself a nice looking container, or you know, make one?
