    Am I Sustainable Enough?

    I’m going all out and asking the big question today. Am I sustainable enough? With everything that’s going on in the world it seems like there is an overwhelming pressure to do more to be green, but is it ever enough? The issue seems to be that there are too many issues to tackle at once. If i’m not worrying about plastic pollution, i’m worrying about fast fashion, if it’s not that, it’s food waste etc. etc. It goes on and on, and the more your eyes are opened to these issues the more overwhelming it becomes. So for my own piece of mind, and maybe to inspire some of…

    2019 Goals

    This year rolled around pretty quickly and we’re already over a week into January, I sense another speedy year like 2018. Today I thought I would jot down my 2019 goals and aspirations for the upcoming year. I don’t like setting new years resolutions and I certainly won’t be beating myself up about not reaching certain targets. I see goal setting as more of a way to help myself check in periodically through the year. I’m going to lay out a few hopes I have for myself in the coming months, then I can look back and see if I need to refocus my attention as the months go by.…

This is in fact a review of one of Sheffield’s newest cafe/ restaurants rather than a ramble about the local library service. Now if you’re from Sheffield, I’m sure you’ve got some opinions about the area of Attercliffe. Known for being a bit rough around the edges, it doesn’t seem the typical place for a new hang out. However Attercliffe is following in the footsteps of…

    My Fitness Journey

    I bet you never thought you’d see a fitness post on this blog, I’ll be honest neither did I. However in the last few months I have really started to enjoy exercising and going to the gym. So today I thought I would share with you my fitness journey. I managed the first 21 years of my life without setting foot in a gym. It has been a running joke in my family that I am uncoordinated, lack sporting ability and am generally a sloth. However in the last few months I have really changed my perspective on exercise, and dare I say it, started to enjoy it. Frightened of…

    Can a Haul Be Sustainable?

    Today I want to talk about fashion again and I have a bit of a bone to pick. Is there such a thing as an sustainable haul? If you’re a long-time reader you probably know I operate a capsule wardrobe, I try not to buy too many clothes and try to choose ethical and sustainable brands- like this gorg jacket from The Good Life Co*. I also love to talk about the environment, so I needed to get this off my chest. Fashions’s Dirty Secrets Recently a documentary aired on the BBC, Stacey Dooley Investigates: Fashion’s Dirty Secrets. I was so pleased that a programme like this was getting air…
