My name is Bella. I am a single mom of two little adventurous, loving and curious girls. 

I live in Accra, Ghana. 

I started this blog back in December of 2016 and relaunched it in 2018. Back then I lived in Zurich, Switzerland, and had worked in the Fashion Retail Management field for a couple of years.

When I started out in 2016, I had just become a mother and started picking up interest in living more sustainably. Inbetween those career-building years, I took off time to be a stay-at-home mother. 

Back then, this blog was created to document my journey to living more sustainably as a mom with a family. 

In 2019, I and the girls moved to Accra. 

And the blog has never been the same.


I write about all I know, I love, I live and bring on others to explore perspectives in sustainability, low waste lifestyles, parenting, and culture (social commentary). 

My blog has evolved into what I like to call a creative platform and space. 

So from time to time, you might also catch personal pieces and mixed-media expression.
