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.

    Some Thoughts on Instagram

In theory it should all be very simple, you upload a photo, maybe stick a filter on it and voila it’s done. However now Instagram is a whole new ball game, especially if you’re a blogger.

    How To Prep Your Wardrobe For Autumn

    I think we can all agree that Autumn is well and truly in the air. We are having the odd burst of sunshine but the rain is creeping in and there’s a definite chill in the morning. So today I thought I’d talk about how to prep your wardrobe for Autumn. I am a wardrobe organisation junkie. I bloody love changing it up season by season, so I’ve been quick to get sorting it out. If you are a long term reader you probably know that I try to operate a capsule wardrobe system, which means I swap out my clothes by season. I also try to limit my buying,…

    The Best Podcasts for Motivation

    Podcasts, they’re everywhere. Today I’m going to talk you through the best podcasts for motivation. The following podcasts bring me so much joy and inspiration and I love to listen to them in the car, whilst I’m walking through town or just when I’m pottering about at home. They are a great way to get a little kick up the behind to crack on with any projects you may have been putting off and it’s also nice to hear people discuss topics which interest you. I actually wrote a post last year about my favourite podcasts, it’s interesting to see how my taste has evolved and which old favourites have…
