    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.

    The Devonshire- The Perfect Sunday Lunch

    Today I want to talk about food. If you know me in person you’ll know I love to eat. If I’m not thinking about food I’m talking about it and if it’s neither of those then I’m eating it. Last weekend myself and Josh had the best Sunday lunch at The Devonshire so I thought I’d tell you all about it.* We decided to go on a Sunday so that we could walk into town and both enjoy a cheeky cocktail instead of one of us having to drive. So, for those of you that don’t know, The Devonshire is located on Division Street in Sheffield, so it’s super central…

    Being a Dementia Friend: Still Alice Review

    Today I want to talk about being a Dementia Friend. I recently went to the theatre to watch Still Alice* and become a Dementia Friend, so today I’m going to tell you all about it.

The production follows Alice and her family from experiencing the tell-tale signs before her diagnosis…
