That Red House - helping the Women's health crisis in Nepal

That Red House - helping the Women's health crisis in Nepal

In 2013, I embarked on what would be one of the most amazing journeys of my life. After nursing my husband through two bouts of cancer, we decided that a chemical free, organic life was the way to go. We built our eco house and garden in the Adelaide Hills, and the puzzle was nearly complete. I had managed to eradicate chemicals from nearly every part of our lives, but the laundry was the one place that seemed to evade my hippy clutches! I decided that I would put my crunchy brain into action and scour the planet for a...

It was a 10hour journey to get there which saw us dodge bulls, cows, donkeys, horses and play a death defying game of chicken with countless over-loaded trucks, vans, bikes, tuk tuks, rickshaws and cars. After a few undie changes, we arrived with white knuckles… but in one piece! We had no idea what to expect from our visit, as up until this point, we had only ever corresponded over email.

Tune in all Terry Tight Arses!

Tune in all Terry Tight Arses!

Are you a terry tight arse? SNAP! We are too! And usually, Maths isn't our forte... but when a sale, discount or price per use comes into play, we're all over it.

We'd rather save coin on the things that don't give us pleasure and spend the savings on a holiday or something as equally pleasurable - some new shoes, a trip to the op shop or a dinner for two perhaps! And just when you thought there was already enough reasons to love soapberries, we have another one for you. They beat...
