Don’t you just love it when you arrive at your local cafe to see the line of people all holding their reusable cups?
Honestly, it’s one of our favourite things to see especially because they look so good all lined up in a row as the fresh coffee is poured in.
These stylish eco heroes are super easy to take everywhere and you can choose just about any colour under the sun. If you’re anything like us at RY, yours will be a beautiful shade of teal (who scored one of our RY keep cups last year?!) ;)
We have multiple lying around the office because just like lip balm, you need a desk one, a car one and one for your handbag.
But....! Have you ever ordered a big healthy green smoothie at that same cafe and all of a sudden found yourself with one of the cafe's single use straws?! All of a sudden, all of those brownie points you'd built up with your reusable coffee cup have gone out the window...
Let’s be honest, it’s something we’ve all been guilty of, but we no longer have to be!
With a reusable straw like the one from Camel’s Back Bamboo in our Autumn box, we can ditch another VERY common source of plastic!
There are sooo many positives to using this stylish little reusable straw:
So make sure you pop your little gift bag from Camel’s Back right next your coffee cup or straight into your handbag. This will be one easy change you can make that will have a positive impact on the world, we think that deserves a smoothie to celebrate!
And one final tip: there are some AWESOME reusable smoothie cups out there, so extra points go to anyone who purchases one and insists their local cafe sell both reusable straws and smoothie cups!You can read more about Camel's Back Bamboo on their website: https://camelsbackbamboo.com
Overnight oats are one of our go to recipes for breakfast!
Not only are they nourishing and delicious, but they are soo easy to make. All you have to do is mix up all of the ingredients the night before and pop it in the fridge, so breakfast is as easy as opening the fridge door!
We have especially been loving these Orange and Cardamom Overnight Oats with Almond Fudge by Sarah Bell from Our Nourishing Table....
At Retreat Yourself we love to spread positivity and having our affirmation She Cards around the office is just one way we do this every day, but we're not the ones ones who believe in the power of affirmations!
The wonderful Mary Grace, who features in our brand new Summer Box, are big advocates for the power of positivity, so we're sharing their amazing amazing words to help leave you feeling more inspired and excited for each day...
If you're anything like us, then it was love at first sight the moment you unboxed the beautiful floral bottle by Wild Fox Apothecary in your Spring Box!
The Floral Oil is a beautiful blend of organic camellia, jojoba and pure coconut oils infused with delicate rose and jasmine flowers and lightly scented with an aromatically fresh, floral blend of pure essential oils.
But there's so much more to Wild Fox Apothecary than meets the eye...
