Hi, I’m Vanessa. First of all welcome to my sustainable lifestyle blog. On Be-smart i want to show you some ideas about a sustainable lifestyle everybody can try.
I would describe myself as a natural loving, DIY fanatic, sometimes a little bit crazy, openminded, creative, crafting addicted, adventure seeking and dreamy maverick. Originally, I’m from Germany, but in present I can call New Zealand, especially Gisborne home. I love the rural and simple lifestyle rather then the big city vibes. Maybe that is what made me fall in love with Gisborne.
I’m aware of the fact that the projects I do are not 100% sustainable. There is always room for optimization. But it is not my intension to show you a 100% perfect sustainable lifestyle. My mission is to show ideas, tips, recipes or ways everybody can try, although with a 1 FTE job. I think if everybody takes only a small step, the outcome will be great.
I’m also aware of the fact that I’m no native speaker. If you will find some spelling or grammar mistakes on the blog, please let me know.
