  1. All that food looked soooo good! I love how eco-friendly your life is! I am really excited to begin turning mine around with new natural and cruelty free makeup you recommended. Riding my bike more, eating less meats, etc. Loving your channels! and your video editing is really cool haha

  2. wow, that thanksgiving dinner looked amazing, so creative! I would love to see more videos from you, I really enjoyed your morning routine video and your daily life vlog ones too. It’s nice to see how relaxed your days are, I find it very inspiring. 🙂

  3. I really loved this video and would be really happy to see more like it. It’s good fun to see ‘slow living’ in action with lovely people and a beautiful environment! and considering your channel is ‘ a slower life’ just post when you want to and are up to it, we’ll love watching them when they come, regularly or just sometimes!:)

  4. What a treat to find out you have another channel!! Ummmmm yum I love your noodle recipe!! I am home alone tonight and you may have rescued me from an ‘unhealthy choice”. I was vegetarian/vegan for quite a few years but with a husband and two kids it became really difficult to accommodate. I try to make as many vegetarian choices as I can.

  5. Lovely video! I started watching over on MGC… I had a hunch that you are vegan! I am wondering, do you feel like veganism may be a natural progression from minimalism and vice versa? Minimalism and being part of the online community brought me to veganism very fast and I think a lot of people have had similar experiences. If you were to do a video on this topic I think it would be a great, gentile form of activism. You have such a nice way about you. All the best 🙂

  6. so yummy! your loaf looked like a mummy being wrapped before you baked it! lol I still have Canadian Thanksgiving too, even though we live in the USA. I wish you could do a video on living a slow life with teenagers!!! Right now my strategy is to try to relax whenever they are not home, and try to find little bits of bliss during the drama that swirls around when they are here! lol Would you think about doing a series for 2016 of one challenging topic per month? There is a group from Courtney Carver doing a simplified year project, but I can’t afford to spend the extra money that they are asking, and done really have that much time, but maybe you could get the top 12 issues that you and your viewers are struggling with and tackle those throughout the year? Mine would be: stressing out over things you can’t control, thinking about what you eat, staying focused on minimalism in the face of constant consumer pressure, connecting with family and friends in a meaningful way, realistic steps towards regular exercise without gyms or videos, and any others you can think up. In other words can you please be my New Years resolution guru for 2016?? Pretty please 😉 By the way, did you ever start those socks? And -I saw a sweater that looked suspiciously like your icelandic one, from Ralph Lauren Denim Supply (the youth aimed line). Did you ever find out if it was hand knit? because this one sure would have fooled me!

  7. I never saw your vlog in my subscription box D:
    I really like your editing and the calm and positive vibe! I’d love to see more vlog-type videos 🙂
    Also, I’ll try to convince my family to make this lentil loaf for christmas, it looks really good and you decorated it so nicely!

  8. I enjoyed watching this video so much. Thank you for sharing. I think your positivity and joy of simple things are really inspiring! Keep on filming these videos, they are great input to start off a slow, mindful day 🙂

  9. I love this video. It was so relaxing and beautiful to watch. Thank you for sharing your Thanksgiving dinner. We have started celebrating American Thanksgiving so this is great timing! I was wondering what I could bring to my parents’ (who decided they hate EVERYTHING vegan a year ago when I finally proclaimed my veganism to them) house for me and my children to eat at Thanksgiving. These are such great ideas! Thanks

  10. Just love your channel! Do you have any advice for going vegan/vegetarian while still getting the protein needed? I’m on a workout plan and need lots of protein but I want to be eco friendly and natural.

  11. So glad I found this other channel of yours 🙂 your lazy Sundays look a lot like ours. Being outside in nature having a Vegan picnic is the best way to spend time ♥

  12. I loved this!!!! It was sweet and calm and beautifully done. I follow BOTH your channels. I only follow 7 people. Want to keep things simple;) You are my fav. I am a knitter and love your fair isle sweater that you wear in this video. Keep up the inspirational videos….you are amazing!
