Words and pictures cannot capture the magic of Bryce Canyon.  It's truly a special place ❤️. . . . . . . #brycecanyon #explore #utah #hiking #joy #experiencesnotthings #thankful
At the very highest point of the highest volcano in Mount Gambier stands @centenarytower  The 115 year old Tower was built as a celebration and today welcomes visitors from near and far for views across the South Eastern forests and coastline. Always worth the walk and even better from the balcony, which is open to the public when the city flag flies above. #mountgambier #discovermountgambier

On Friday, this lovely man and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary 🥰 Instead of buying him a gift, I gave him an experience. He gets to choose where to spend a weekend away. The only condition is that we have to travel there by train (no high-emission flights). Oh, and he has to take me with him, of course 😂 ————— I love experiential gifts because they usually mean I get to spend time with the people I love, they support local businesses, and they’re not about accumulating stuff and wasting the planet’s resources 🌍💕
“Fill your life with experiences, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show” —— This morning we had so much fun using a gift certificate for a trampoline park that my son got for his birthday back in January. My kids thought it was so great they proudly wore their bright orange sticker passes for the rest of the day on the back of their shirts and talked about it non stop! It made me stop and think about how much I appreciate creating those memories with our kids today. As we have simplified our life and our home we have been adjusting our goals for what we want to prioritize with limited resources like time and money, and with kids who are only little for so long. I truly treasure these moments where we are able to experience fun things with our kids; this was a gift given to our son, but one our family got to enjoy together. I have officially fallen head over heels for the “experiences over things” mentality.

Over a few hours this morning this went from cocoon to revealing our first #butterfly!!! We still have one in the cocoon. Such a cool thing for us to have followed this process from beginning to end! 🦋 #paintedladybutterfly #transformation #spring #experiencesnotthings
One of the best things about this lifestyle is the amount of time you get to spend outdoors. Bonus, you have the time to do it with the people you love the most. Last week I said good by to 50 and hello to 51...by enjoying nature, family time, BBQ and some reggae beats #reggaebeats #dirtyheads #beach #beachlife #beachdaysarebest #enohammock #semiahmoo #eagles #campfires #solostove #happybirthday #skiparock  #ps Thanks for all the Birthday wishes. #cheeers my friends #experiencesnotthings
When Tutu is in town, you go to the @pghzoo! Then you run into a bunch of hooligans named Stephenson! Awesome trip! #tutuintheburgh #pittsburghzoo #pittsburghzooandppgaquarium #pghzoo #toddlersofinstagram #experiencesnotthings #animals #myfriendsarestalkers 😂❤️🥰😘
Love this walk along the #southwestcoastpath to #watergatebay  You can carry your wetsuit, go #surfing 🏄 followed by a cold 🍺at the new #watchfulmary overlooking the beach You can pick the path up only 100m from Kerenza  It's the simple things that count.

⁣“A funny face” pic needs to be taken whenever someone takes out a camera and wants to capture my younger one. ⠀ ⠀ The older one, however, does not want to be in photos these days and gets annoyed whenever we ask him to pose for one. The age of defiance or the age of wanting to be independent or the age of throwing attitude... whatever be the case, he refuses a request to be in pictures a lot! We have to catch him in the right mood or take one without his knowledge or smile. ⠀ ⠀ Thankfully the daughter loves to be photographed but will do so on her own terms. The pose will be twisted, the smile will be silly, and she will rarely look at the camera 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤷‍♀️ ⠀ ⠀ But at times when one agrees and the other looks in the camera, it becomes a picture perfect moment. ⠀ ⠀ Anyone else has a kid who is being camera shy or defiant?  #motherhoodiscolorful  #motherhoodishard  #boymomlife  #siblings  #magicofchildhood  #mymagicalmoments  #magicofchildhood  #parenting  #candidmotherhood  #smallhikes  #weekendvibes  #notsopictureperfect  #familiesthathike  #treehouse  #southflorida  #adventuringwithkids  #momswhohike  #dadswhohike  #summervibes  #floridafun #childrenseemagic  #weekendjaunt  #experiencesnotthings  #letthemexplore  #letthemexplorenature  #letthembelittle  #runwildmychild  #momswhoclick  #insta_florida ⠀ ⠀

Beautiful, vibrant, eclectic Miami 💫👌🏽💓 —- I come to Miami at least once a year - can’t believe it’s only on this trip that I got to discover Wynwood Walls (all thanks to a local Uber driver who told me to check it out) __ All the work from the greatest graffiti and street artist in downtown Miami.  So, so cool! . . . . . . #wynwoodwalls #wynwood #graffiti #graffitiart #streetart #miami #eclectic #familytimes #art #balancedlifestyle #overwhelmedtooverjoyed #experiencesnotthings #energymanagement #vision #priorities
Day 25 of #minsgame and it was back to the wardrobes and drawers.⁣ ⁣ Even with with a five-month-old little limpet and a boisterous five-year-old to occupy, I managed to rustle up this pile in no time at all. ⁣ ⁣ 1 x pair of shoes⁣ 1 x pair of beach shoes⁣ 1 x sun hat⁣ 3 x summer tops⁣ 1 x summer shorts ⁣ 1 x vest top⁣ 1 x work trousers ⁣ 1 x swimming costume⁣ 1 x beach skirt ⁣ 2 x souvenir t-shirts ⁣ 2 x shirts⁣ 2 x football strips ⁣ 1 x swimming outfit⁣ 1 x t-shirt⁣ 6 x pairs of socks ⁣ ⁣ Some of these are mine, some my eldest son’s and all are either too small or never, ever worn anymore. For example, I haven’t worn black since I had my colours done three years ago so those shoes have sat about for that long alone!⁣ ⁣ I think there’s loads more I can clear out clothes-wise, which is insane! I swear once my capsule wardrobe is complete I won’t ever go back to this...⁣ ⁣ #minimalism #minimalist #attemptedminimalist #livingwithless #lessstuff #lessstuffmorejoy #letthatstuffgo #livingsimply #livingmeaningfully #livingwithpurpose #consciousliving #consciousconsumer #experiencesnotthings #experiencesnotstuff #letssavetheplanet
Let’s learn to say “NO” more often so that we can say “YES” to the moments that truly matter. ⠀ ⠀ Happy Weekend All!

This is Limited edition, it sold out over Christmas but was so popular it’s back!! . Does he really need another tie, book or pair of socks? . This is actually something you could have some fun with - make it two fold by spending some time together and give him a mini facial to get him started! . . #fathersday2019 #treatyourdad #dadsneedgoodskintoo #experiencesnotthings #happydadhappyfamily #naturalskincareforhim #naturalgroomingproducts #dadsneedskincaretoo #protectyourskin
Spotting amazing street art is a great example of something that can be a simple yet joyful moment in life.  The person / people who created this in Birmingham must have spent so much time and energy on it.  It can be so easy to just walk past amazing art like this. But taking just a minute or three to stop and appreciate it is so worth it. Chances are it will leave you feeling inspired, reflective and even a little happier.  Have you spotted any cool street art today?  #themomentsjournal #momentsthatmatter #simplrbutspecial
Did you know you can now recycle contact lenses and their packaging???⁣ ⁣ This is something my conscience is struggling with, the fact that I wear daily disposables. I’m trialling monthlies but what with all the solution bottles that I’d go through, I’m not sure it’s any better. ⁣What to do?! ⁣  I quite like wearing glasses but I tend to get headaches if I wear them all day but maybe I need to get a new set (my current frames are almost 13 years old!!!) and persevere with them. Even alternating between lenses and glasses would be a step in the right direction I suppose! Ideally I’d love to get my eyes lasered but the procedure terrifies me 😱 ⁣ ⁣ If you wear lenses, will you get them recycled?⁣ ⁣ #minimalism #minimalist #attemptedminimalist #livingwithless #lessstuff #lessstuffmorejoy #letthatstuffgo #livingsimply #livingmeaningfully #livingwithpurpose #consciousliving #consciousconsumer #experiencesnotthings #experiencesnotstuff #letssavetheplanet

YOU GUYS!!! I DID A THING!! I painted this sign like a BOSS!👩🏻‍🎨 In my family, we’re all about experiences vs. things when it comes to gift giving, and for Mother’s Day this year my mom bought a sign making night from @strongnfreecdn at @gardenworkscanada for all the ladies in the family! Four generations around the table and this is my finished product!  I’m beyond thrilled with how it turned out, and the hosts were an absolute blast. They offer paint nights and sell individual pieces on their website! I highly recommend you check them out!
We two Beznoska siblings have never been particularly crafty. But look what we made! That’s a lazy susan I’m holding, FYI. Thanks for the awesome Christmas present @brenna3460 and @pbeznoska! and thanks @coastdiybar for the fun experience! #seaturtle #sunflowers #siblings #crafting #experiencesnotthings #butalsoitsfuntomakethings
So sargassum is a big thing right now. It's a nuisance for beach hotels and other businesses but what is it and how bad could it be? Sargassum is technically a form of algae (seaweed) that forms into mats in the ocean and grows… and boy has it been growing lately! :: Look at these 2 pictures of the same spot now and 8 years ago. I used to jump off this tree into crystal clear water and now if you could actually see the water through the sargassum you'd notice the changes that have occurred. So much that there's a concrete break wall here now. :: If you want to know more about sargassum, why it's an issue right now, whether it's good or bad and what we can do about it, head over to our blog to continue reading what I found out about it 📖 *********************************************** #beachscience #sargassum #islandgirl #saltlife #expatkids #freerangeteens #travelgoals #unschool #studenttravellers #worldschool #selfdirected #handsonlearning #experiencesnotthings #studenttravel #studentretreat2019 #highschool #worldlyteens #conservation #betterthanschool #happykids

Day 24 of #minsgame and it’s cheerio to this surplus-to-requirement cutlery!⁣ ⁣ These were some of the culprits contributing to our previously never ending pile of dirty dishes. No matter what I did I could never get to a stage where my kitchen was clean and tidy; there was ALWAYS a bunch of dirty glasses, crockery and cutlery lurking about, sometimes in the sink, but more often than not cluttering up our countertops. It drove me to distraction!⁣ ⁣ The answer? Getting rid of the excess! Now I’ve pared back our cutlery, crockery, and glassware, I can quite easily start the day by emptying the dishwasher and accommodating the day’s dishes throughout the day, popping it on at night with completely clear, clean and tidy countertops. I can’t tell you how satisfying it is! ⁣ ⁣ Less than a week to go now, hope you’re still managing to purge those useless and cluttering items!⁣ ⁣ #minimalism #minimalist #attemptedminimalist #livingwithless #lessstuff #lessstuffmorejoy #letthatstuffgo #livingsimply #livingmeaningfully #livingwithpurpose #consciousliving #consciousconsumer #experiencesnotthings #experiencesnotstuff #letssavetheplanet⁣ ⁣
⁣ Review written for @familiesuk and @officialemmasdiary ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I was lucky enough to be invited to visit BeWILDerwood as part of their Towering Treetop Tangles launch party, and what a party it was! I visited with my husband, our two boys (aged 3 and 1) and my niece (aged 9). ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ For anybody that hasn’t visited before here is a little of what you can expect. The minute you step foot into BeWILDerwood you are transported to a land of Twiggles and Boggles. A land where outdoor adventure, fun and imagination are embraced and where age is nothing but a number. As you begin to explore a magical world of treehouses, bridges, slides, zip wires and so much more, you cannot help but get lost in the spirit of it all. In fact, we spent 8 hours at the park on this visit and still we could happily have played for longer! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As part of this visit we were treated to a yummy breakfast before joining in with a musical parade through the forest, led by Tom Blofeld himself, which ended at the park’s newest attraction, Towering Treetop Tangles. After a short introduction and a magical confetti celebration, we were let loose to explore and I have to say that we were not disappointed. Towering Treetop Tangles is designed with the more confident explorers in mind but my 3 year old certainly gave it a run for its money! What I loved about it is that it encourages children not just to play and explore but also to problem-solve; the routes are not always as straightforward as they seem and require some thought, and sometimes even teamwork, to navigate the structures successfully. It was magical seeing my 3 year old son and 9 year old niece working together and encouraging one another to successfully work their way around the latest attraction. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ *𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘶𝘦𝘥 𝘪𝘯 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 𝘣𝘦𝘭𝘰𝘸*

Gabriel shares my love for the Bellagio Fountains! There is something so magical about them. 💕
Be sure to visit Vieques on your next visit to Puerto Rico. The small island off the eastern shore of mainland Puerto Rico has slowly rebuilt post-Hurricane Maria and is ready for exploration. We spent three days here and saw very few other tourists. This beautiful view is from Mosquito Pier which we had all to ourselves. . . . . . #puertorico #vieques #viequespuertorico #mosquitopier #blueskies #travel #explore #wanderlust #travelwithkids #experiencesnotthings

On Wednesday, I went to a well-known low price supermarket to get some bits and bobs with the intention of being #plasticfree. And I can tell you, it was nearly impossible. Like, frustratingly impossible. Not only was the range of produce not in some way encased in plastic extremely limited, the produce that was plastic free was in some cases over 400% more expensive.⁣ ⁣ Take these kiwis for example. My eldest has a thing for them at the moment so I thought, I definitely need to get kiwis. Previously, I’d have picked up the pack of six without hesitation, not giving a second thought to the wrapping nor the fact that at least two would end up in the food waste bin. Why? The price! Six for 70p vs. one for 49p! It’s a no-brainier, right?⁣ ⁣ Wrong. Utter madness is what it is. And it needs to stop. We as responsible and conscious consumers can only do so much; the ones with the power to make real change have to do something, and quickly.⁣ ⁣ There are a couple of stores here in Aberdeen that offer zero waste bulk-buying options so I’m going to check them out. In the meantime does anyone have tips for plastic-free grocery shopping?? ⁣ ⁣ #minimalism #minimalist #attemptedminimalist #livingwithless #lessstuff #lessstuffmorejoy #letthatstuffgo #livingsimply #livingmeaningfully #livingwithpurpose #consciousliving #consciousconsumer #experiencesnotthings #experiencesnotstuff #letssavetheplanet⁣
