Two Aussies Pay Homage to the Fearlessness of the 80s "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Two Aussies Pay Homage to the Fearlessness of the 80s, Design*Sponge

Time and time again Ive heard of homeowners and renters working tirelessly to rid their space of its dated look and bring it into the 21st century. Oftentimes items from the 1980s, in particular, are the first to get the boot when it comes time to redecorate. Im not sure if its the pastels or the floral draperies that get everyone so worked up, but many believe this specific decade offered little in terms of worthwhile interior design.

For Natasha Webb and her husband Anthony, however, the 1980s embody something too unique to forget. They say the decades penchant for experimentation with color and mixing patterns was revolutionary and is still unmatched. The 80s [were] all about putting yourself out there in every way, they tell us.

When decorating their 1983-era home in Melbourne, Australia, they strove to infuse it with this boldness. To do so Natasha started with colorful and eye-catching abstract artwork. She then sampled the brightest hues from each piece and began peppering them throughout each room. The result is a kaleidoscopic look that acts as a time machine transporting us back to a period when there werent so many rules and louder was better. Scroll down to check it out. Enjoy!  Garrett

Exercising too much: what happens healthy international students blog

Working out is good for you. But heres what happens when you work out too much.

IMG_20180302_120355

If you exercise too much youll be tired, rundown and not feeling it.

For women that would be missed periods. Missed periods suck as youll be more likely to develop a stress fracture.

If the gym suspects that you have been working out way too much then they will talk to you about it in a private place. If there need to be some changes to your exercise plan limiting how much you can do, the gym will ask you to speak to your doctor about this.

The gym has a safe exercise policy in which some clients must be medically cleared. When you sign up youll be asked this.

But for marathoners we do work out a fair bit more average than your normal person.

Staying focused at uni healthy international students blog

Guys here are some ways to stay focussed at uni.

Group study

Try and find some friends that are doing the same course as you and you can study together. Friends that study together do much better.

Exercise

Find something you enjoy. Most students find going to the gym is a good way to meet like minded people and make new friends.

Eat well

Dont forget the pyramid. Sometimes it can be hard to eat well when you are studying for exams. But try not to eat two minute noodles or go out everyday.

Sleep well

Sleeping well in winter can be hard as it is so cold outside. But try and get 7-8 hours sleep a night.

Remember your why

Studying is not a sprint but a marathon and sometimes there may be failures along the way. Running a marathon is hard work and there is a lot of learning along the way. Hence it is the same for study. Dont give up when the studying gets too hard.

But if you lose focus and the motivation in the course that youre doing or if the course does not suit you, you can change courses. Just speak to your...

5 changes that are making my life kinder to the environment Green Gourmet Giraffe

The amount of information about climate change, plastics in our oceans and landfill can easily fill me with despair about our future.  I live in a small home with a small carbon footprint and ride a bike and am vegetarian but it seems never enough.  My mum says when it is overwhelming to clean a room to just do five things.  Break a big job down into manageable parts.  So while I can't solve the planet's problems, I can share 5 changes I have consciously made during this year to make my life kinder to the planet.

Sewing
I don't like sewing.  I have a small sewing box I have had since I was a kid and that it it.  I mostly sew to save.  So lately I have made an effort to a bit more sewing and sew some patches onto jeans and sheets that have holes.  It has extended their life.  I don't have a sewing machine but handstitching can be quite zen.  When I mentioned to friends that I had used curtains to patch my jeans I realised I was a bit Scarlett O'Hara.  But she didn't get inundated with plastics in the 19th Century like we do.  Nor did Maria in The Sound of Music who also liked clothes made of curtains.  Oh, I also realised my friends thought I had curtains with huge holes in them but the curtains I meant were the offcuts.

Reducing plastic bags
We have had reusable bags to take to the supermark...

Bulgur healthy international students blog

At the Good Food and Wine show, we bought a showbag and it had Bulgur in there. Now Bulgur is a grain that we are willing to try. Its a middle eastern grain. Ive never used it before but I wanted to try

img_20181008_131242

We bought course and fine bulgur and they were 1kg each.

This is really easy to cook. You put some water in a pot and then you add 1.5 cups of bulgur to the mix and then you let it boil for 15 minutes. After that, you have to let it sit for 15 minutes.

They are chewy and low gi. You can add lots of things to your bulgur such as prunes and meat. It has that nice earthy texture to it that I quite liked.

Do buy and try bulgur for yourself as they are low in fat and high in fiber and iron.
