Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here
Cheeky Hippies is all about learning and how to improve your day-to-day.
We’ll share articles on health [mental, physical] — ways to save money [budgeting] — minimalism [& transitioning] — and we’ll discuss what we’ve been doing [reading, watching, learning] with you —
My name is Lea and next to me is my hubby, Idriss.
A few things
I was born & raised in Montreal, and have wanderlust for the warmer parts of the world — I love love love hiking and sunsets
We follow Michael Pollan’s way of eating [and incorporate many vegan meals]
Idriss is the founder of the recipe blog Broke Foodies where you can indulge in some healthy and inexpensive food-porn! His recipes are simple, minimal and delicious.
Idriss & I are dog parents to Booboo — he’s our lovely old man!
Our dream is to live in a sustainable, minimalist home that’d be run on green energy, and to be ourselves run on food grown sustainably in our organic garden #goals.
Why Cheeky Hippies?
Okay, if you are imagining that we are hipsters from the west coast who don’t like to shower and finish every sentence with … man! You could not be more wrong.
We chose this name mainly because of the reaction we keep on getting from people when we talk passionately about things that we find interesting (i.e. renewable energy, sustainibilty, social justice, and so on), is that we sound like hippies. So it only seemed fitting that the name of the blog where we are going share our passion for this subjects should include the word : Hippies. Our beloved nickname.
We are unapologetic hipsters, and we can be pretty cheeky about it at times.
What you will find here:
We write articles on many topics that interest us. I write mostly about health trends, minimalism, and lifestyle while Idriss focuses more on personal finance (being a finance and economics grad) and book reviews.
We will cover any topic that we deem interesting and we would love to get your opinion on what to write next. You can find us on Instagram and send us a message : @brokefoodies and @cheekyhippies
This place is for you, dear reader, and we hope that you will stick around.
