If I say #divinefeminine and #ecofriendly lifestyle, if you like women who do not take themselves seriously but who have excellent ideas on serious matters, if you feel exhausted after the last holiday season, then our guest today can make you enjoy the next holiday season in a more peaceful way.
Her name is @douceur.sauvage on Instagram which is French for Wild Softness. We started the interview (available in French here) asking ourselves if it was a good idea to lie to our children about the existence of Father Christmas.
Then we moved the gifts and @douceur.sauvage taught me how to wrap presents in fabric: this beautiful ecofriendly practice is called Furoshiki. I was very impressed! This is a brilliant idea which saves so many paper.
On a practical level, she suggested turning all our parties into pot luck. The idea is to allow the hosts to feel rested and ready to enjoy the gathering instead of running around like crazy and cooking for 12 people, while the guests can proudly share a traditional dish they lovingly made themselves.
Lastly, Marie-Laëtitia from @douceur.sauvage shared some of her wisdom about the lunar cycle and how it can influence our lives as women. Far from typical New Year’s resolutions which can feel strict and sometimes harsh on our body, she suggests we look at each new moon cycle as a rebirth. We can look back on each month and set intentions for the coming one in a kind and loving way, making sure our whole year is a time for new beginnings.
