The Simple Things

Jul 01 2021
Magazine

The Simple Things is a beautiful, useful, quirky and fun magazine about taking time to live well. We cover mindfulness and microadventures, eating and growing, forgotten wisdom, home life and slow moments. It's for people who love their lives but want to take the pressure off and remember what’s really important. We like tea & cake, learning stuff, being outside and the satisfaction of a job well done. Do you?

A could-do list Splash!

Editoral

JULY ALMANAC • Seasonal thoughts & things to help you enjoy the month

Sunshine sushi • A CELEBRATION OF JAPANESE DISHES IS JUST RIGHT FOR SUMMER – LIGHT, BRIGHT AND SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE TO MAKE AND ENJOY

magical creatures • AN APPRECIATION OF MOON JELLYFISH

Things to want and wish for • Loving your home, inside and out. Books and treats for you to enjoy.

Wheels of fortune • To many of us, a campervan equals freedom. A vehicle made to roam, to stop where you like – and to hunker down in if the weather turns. But for these three van lovers it also meant a mobile office, a more affordable and simpler way of life and a chance to share the experience of off-grid living with visitors.

CAKE IN THE HOUSE

My day in cups of tea • We asked floristry teacher Rachel Wardley to tell us all about her day – and what she thinks makes a blooming good cuppa
