For those of you interested in crime: this was an interesting read...although some pages require a strong stomach. (You have been warned.) Hats off to those who work in the prison system!
Quickly discovering that many coffee shops in Sydney are at the top of their aesthetic game ☕️— succulents and minimalist decor seem to be the beautiful norm here 🙌🌿🌵
This lovely café is a short five minute walk from our hotel and features many lovely plants, including this Yucca plant (which we recently bought for ourselves). We decided to buy a flat white and almond croissant 🥐 here after our lovely morning run over to the Sydney Opera House 👌🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻
Anyways, I have a sneaky feeling I’ll be buying a few more tropical plants once I get home! 😏😍🍃
One major thing that I’m loving about Sydney so far— the amazing plants you see just about anywhere! 😍🌿
Yesterday, while we were walking from our hotel to the Sydney Opera House, we were able to take a stroll through the amazing Royal Botanic Gardens🌷🍃These gardens are able to sustain so much more than flowers; the selection of tropical plants and trees to be found there are overwhelming (especially since I’ve gained a recent obsession with them 😅🌵) •
This particular shot was taken in The Sydney Fernery, where these massive plants that accompanied dinosaurs in the Jurassic period now reside peacefully 🌴

Vegan boots from @matt_and_nat, my favorite vegan brand 😊 The vegan « leather » is made out of recycled plastic bottles and really looks like real leather, you can’t make a difference! This brand is awesome, they are committed to be sustainable and eco-friendly, they design long lasting and resistant product and use recycled materials. They recently introduced recycled bicycle tires to their collections! These shoes where 130€, so not more expensive than leather shoes!
Why did I stopped buying leather? Well, obviously because I didn’t wanted to wear something coming from animal exploitation but also for environmental and social reasons. The leather industry has great impacts because of the waste discharge from tanneries that pollute the air, soil and water causing serious health problems (toxic chemichals are used) for local population (often in developing countries) and devastating ecosystems.
If you’re looking for vegan shoes you can also check Avesu, Wills, Vegetarian shoes, Naitika, Noha… Other suggestions? Please share in comments!
🇫🇷 Bottes véganes de @matt_and_nat 😊 Le «cuir» végane est fabriqué à partir de bouteilles en plastique recyclées et ressemble vraiment à du vrai cuir! Cette marque est vraiment cool, ils s'engagent à être durables et respectueux de l’environnement : ils conçoivent des produits durables et résistants et utilisent des matériaux recyclés. Ces chaussures coûtent 130 €, donc pas plus cher que ce que j’aurai mis dans des chaussures en cuir!
Pourquoi j’ai arrêté d'acheter du cuir? Eh bien, parce que je ne voulais plus porter quelque chose provenant de l'exploitation animale mais aussi pour des raisons environnementales et sociales. L'industrie du cuir a de grands impacts à cause des rejets des tanneries qui polluent l'air, le sol et l'eau, entraînant de graves problèmes de santé (à cause des produits toxiques utilisés) pour la population locale (souvent dans les pays en développement) et détruisant les écosystèmes.

Plant design is about selecting plants based on conditions and position, trying things out and watching to see how the plants respond. I knew this tree needed to be in this space a long time ago but it was always going to be a mission to get it there. Thanks so much to @designbyatlas for coming to my rescue with a bigger vehicle and to Luke for that little extra 💪🏼 we needed to get it in the car. .
