    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…

    Glossier Haul and First Impressions

    The time has come, I’ve been waiting and waiting….and waiting. Glossier has hit the UK! I have been lusting after their skincare and makeup products for the best part of a year as they were only available in the US but finally it’s made it’s way across the pond and straight into my basket. I’m a creature of habit and have really scaled back my makeup and skincare routines and collections over the last couple of years, so the fact that I have bought so much really shows how excited I was. I just think the whole brand is up my street, its all about less is more, lightweight makeup…

    Festive Lush Haul

    Yesterday I did something very bad. I went into Lush and I did not show restraint. I went in to have a smell at the new Limited Edition Halloween and Christmas products with the intention of maybe grabbing a few. I grabbed more than a few. I grabbed a bag full.

However I stupidly forgot I love Autumn/ Winter scents, therefore I liked them all and therefore bought them all. I had a total TREAT YO SELF…

    University Notes and Stationery

    So Uni has officially started again, although I’m not in until Friday, I know plenty of freshers have already started their inductions and lectures so I thought I would share some ways of staying organised and how I will be taking my notes this year- thrilling I know. This will just be a short one because really I just wanted to share my cute stationery with you. So in first and second year I literally turned up with a notepad and pen and copied up the entire 2 hour long powerpoint word for word every single week, which resulted in pages and pages of notes that I didn’t understand and…

    Lush Haul

    So the other day I popped into Lush to treat myself to a few new bits. I recently moved house, and for the first time in over 2 years at uni I finally have a bath again! Obviously this meant one thing- I need bath bombs. I feel like I’ve been reasonably restrained, I could have done a lot more damage but I’ve decided to wait to stock  up again around Halloween. I went for the one of the new releases, I’d seen the new Jelly Face Masks advertised on instagram and they looked like something  I would like, there are 5 to choose from and they vary in terms…
