Sustainable Period Products

I’m coming at you with a little bit of something different today. First off, the obligatory ‘this is not a sponsored post’ warning. Second off… this is a very womxn-centric post. Today I wanted to talk about reusable period pads! Huzzah, I know! It’s a ‘taboo’ topic for many, which just goes to show what … Continue reading Sustainable Period Products

Thrift Shop Look Book

  I called this post 'thrift store' for all my American people but these three items are from local charity shops. The town I live in is full of charity shops and whilst you sometimes have to really LOOK for things these pieces jumped out at me right away. First up; the striped jumper! It … Continue reading Thrift Shop Look Book

Autumnal photo stream

I was planning on doing a particular post for autumn but I haven't really had a chance to go out and take pictures. What I do have, though, is a bunch of pictures 'from the cutting room floor' so... Enjoy. This year autumn seems more green than ever before. Usually it's orange and yellow and … Continue reading Autumnal photo stream

Love your local libraries!

I'm a big reader! I sometimes go through phases of not reading stuff but it's rare and I always feel awful about it so I made a vow to myself to always be reading... again. I have to be honest - I have always loved our local library but I have hardly ever used it. … Continue reading Love your local libraries!

Fast fashion Vs sustainable fashion

You may or may not have heard about 'Fast Fashion' but it's something I've recently come to learn about after making the switch to being a vegan and looking into a more minimalistic lifestyle [the latter is the one I'm working on at the moment!]. Fast Fashion is, for those wondering, the term used to … Continue reading Fast fashion Vs sustainable fashion

Being Vegan…

  Although it's early days I thought I'd do a little blog post about a recent but long time coming change in my life... I went fully vegan on your ass. Or really my ass. Ok, let's stop talking about asses for once, guys! If you read THIS POST about my makeup bag and being cruelty free you might … Continue reading Being Vegan…

Is my makeup bag cruelty free?

As a vegetarian and a general animal lover I often worry about the cruelty free aspect of the products I use. Whilst I'm a terrible vegetarian [I eat fish and also own *some* leather products] I still want to be conscious about the decisions I make about the products I use daily. I recently watched … Continue reading Is my makeup bag cruelty free?

Say NO! [To Puppy Farms]

Nothing makes me sicker than seeing dogs mistreated. Or animals. OK, I don't want to see any creature [great or small] mistreated, but I recently watched a TV show about puppy farms and it made me really angry. We live in a time where we're pretty much all knowing about things; the Internet offers you no … Continue reading Say NO! [To Puppy Farms]

Hello Ghostbusters Reboot!

If you were born in the 80's you've probably seen Ghostbusters. If you are a cool person you probably love both movies. If you don't you may direct yourself elsewhere, may I suggest a Wiki Lucky Dip? The Ghostbusters reboot has me chomping at the bit to get to the cinema, get a giant bucket … Continue reading Hello Ghostbusters Reboot!

The ‘F’ Word

Whatever you do don't ever use the 'F' word in front of me. The word I mean is FAT. Urgh. Even writing it makes me feel gross. I have this thing against it because, to me, fat is what you have not who you are in descriptive terms. When people use FAT as a put … Continue reading The ‘F’ Word
