5 Lazy Natural Remedies for Summer Colds

Today I have renamed myself Grotty Mcgrot Bags.

Not because my face has suddenly turned a florescent colour green (I like to save that for my facebook page..), but because this cold has shown no signs of shifting and I feel grotty! I have soldiered on regardless today at work, and actually been surprisingly productive. But as soon as I came home, I fell into a ball of self pity and carbohydrate cravings.

I am too tired to write, and too tired to relieve my summer cold symptoms! So in this situation – of lifeless and coldy despair – here are 5 of my natural (and incredibly lazy) remedies for busting a summer cold:  Continue reading 5 Lazy Natural Remedies for Summer Colds

Lazy Indoor Gardening for the non green-fingered

When I started A lazy Girl Goes Green a few months back, I said that you really don’t need to be a green fingered, creative up-cycling goddess to live a greener lifestyle.

No hot water meant no washing! Continue reading Green washing: soap nuts and cold water!

I heart my Juicer!

Happy Wednesday lazy green people! we are so close to the weekend I can smell it…

I just wanted to do a quick post to share some big news…. that I am officially in love with my new juicer! This was an early birthday present and I have been road testing it for the last month; before I announced my official verdict on juicing. I was a little curious, yet dubious, about how practical it was; and more importantly, how long it would take before my interest waned from the effort of juicing AND cleaning it out!  Continue reading I heart my Juicer!
