Don’t dry your laundry in the machine; hang-dry on a rack at home! This method not only helps to use less electricity, but will also preserve the quality of your clothes. The machine wears out and destroys the fabric, while hanging on a rack in a room temperature keeps them soft and natural. If you hang on a rack on your balcony or your backyard, they will smell fresh too. Try hanging your clothes outside during winter. You will love the effect. Your clothes will smell the freshness of snow, and believe me it feels nice wearing something like that.

Whether you like it or not, the commercialized ‘Day of Love’ is soon to be upon us. Valentine’s Day does not hold the same sentiments it once did. There are many religious stories about the origins of Saint Valentine that mainly stem from the rituals practiced by Romans in order to ensure fertility. The romantic element to Valentine’s Day arose hundreds of years later in France and England where February 14th was commonly believed to be the first day of birds’ mating season.

As a Flemish girl, I was taught that a decent meal had to have potatoes, vegetables and meat. But in 2011, another Flemish girl turned my ideas about food upside down. This year, over 86,000 people are following her by eating less meat for 40 days. Meet Dagen Zonder Vlees, a booming Belgian initiative.

Cold temperatures have been experienced across the country and it is safe to say that winter is in full swing. For those of you who drive in the winter, now is the dreaded time of year where you have to battle the cold to scrape off your windshield or possibly shovel your vehicle out of a snowdrift. Another thought that may cross your mind is making sure you have a remote car start, or making a plan to run out in the cold 20 minutes before you leave to let your car warm up.
