Ways to source your clothes more ethically

Apologies for the short break, but my sister got married last week and I didn’t have a prepared post written and scheduled, really need to get on top of that! Sorry though, and back to the post. A while ago I did a post about how you could show your support and passion for causes through your wardrobe choices, that you could pledge support through thinking carefully about what you wear. Recently I’ve re-read this post and thought more on the topic of fashion and charity; not only that but the impact that the fashion industry itself has on the environment. The fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry in the world, only second to the fossil fuel, fast fashion especially is responsible for a large part of this. This impact started me thinking about my own wardrobe choices and the ways that I could minimise my own fashion carbon footprint which I have now decided to share with you.

What she did: Tales from Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls

Thursday, 9 August 2018



Thought I’d use a disclaimer to start the post, just to say any grammatical or spelling errors are down to me writing this on my phone whilst on a train. I didn’t fancy lugging my laptop down to London for a flat viewing so the notes app on my phone will do for now. Disclaimer aside, let’s get down to business and continue on with the post. Anyone else get Li Shang from Mulan in their head singing that phrase or is it just me?

Anyway, back to the post, two months ago for my birthday I received a copy of Good Night Stories For Rebel girls since I’d been going on about it for ages. Although it’s a book marketed for children, as an adult I adore it. The stunning illustrations and stories of heroic women are just amazing, which is why I want to share some of those stories with you today. I just think these women deserve more recognition since I didn’t know about them until reading this book and you might not have too. Good Night Stories for rebel girls though isn't just special for the stories it told but the story of how it was made since it's the most funded original book in the history of crowdfund! I thought I'd share just a few stories of some women that I hadn't heard of before picking up this book. 

My First Time...

Sunday, 5 August 2018



I thought I’d carry on the over-done youtube and blog post formats that I set by doing a favourites post by doing a tag as my next post. This tag hits clickbait on the nose with its title of the first time, but I think we all know by now it’s not a blow by blow documentation of how the creator lost their virginity. I saw this tag on JennyinNeverland’s blog a few weeks ago and just thought it seemed like a fun way to get to know the person behind the blog. Who doesn’t love a tag every now and then anyway? Let’s crack on with the questions.

July Favourites

Wednesday, 1 August 2018




Hey everyone, it’s that time of the month! Not THAT time of the month but an equally dreaded one for people trying to save money and shy away from blogger recommended products. That’s right, I’m coming at you with a favourites post! Without further ado, enjoy or don’t enjoy reading about what I’ve been loving in the month of July.
