    Spring Capsule Wardrobe Update

    I mentioned in my March To Do List post that one of my aims for the month was to sort out my Spring Capsule Wardrobe. So far I’ve done an Autumn and Winter Capsule which have both worked reasonably well. There have been some stand out pieces in both of these which have kept me cosy and warm in the harsh British weather, and I didn’t find it too difficult to transition from one to the other, as all I needed were a couple of bits of knitwear. However the change from Winter to Spring is much more apparent. Although the weather is not yet boiling, it is certainly set to…

I even earned the “Green” Blue Peter Badge when I was younger by drawing a picture of our animal friendly garden- I know, I needed a hobby. Anyway, today I thought I would share some small changes we can all make to help the environment. I think we can all agree the Earth is in a pretty bad way so there are a few easy swaps we…

    Ethical Shopping

    So today I though I’d talk about something that actually has a bit of meaning and importance behind it rather then just a random assortment of items I’ve been loving this past month. I’ve been noticing for a while that we as a society are obsessed with consumerism. We need to buy everything new, we need it and we need it now. We are addicted to buying and buying and buying more but how often do we stop and think about the impact of our purchases? Not just on our own bank balance but on our fellow human beings and our planet. Let’s face it, we don’t. We all know…
