THE TRUE COST, FAST FASHION + WHAT WE CAN DO TO HELP

May 22, 2017



Last year a friend of mine had suggested that I should watch 'The True Cost'; a documentary explaining the impact that fast fashion has on the world, it's consumers, and the workers in the industry. It hasn't been until recently that I have taken the time to watch the documentary, and as you may or may not know, I have been heavily following the fashion industry for a few years now and I wanted to share my thoughts on the subject.

MY APRIL FAVOURITES

May 01, 2017


As I write this I'm suffering with a cold once again, this has been quite typical lately, due to my current schedule. I've been really feeling the effects of exhaustion and because of this, I've been catching colds more frequently. Despite these circumstances, I've been heavily enjoying glimpses of the Spring sunshine as well as some new and old products. Read below what I have been loving during April.

MARCH MOODBOARD

March 04, 2017


Bonjour bumblebee! I've entered March listening to Gypsy and Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac way too much, over drinking cappuccinos, and smothering my face with organic oils before bedtime because my skin has been so dry recently. This morning I noticed blossom starting to form on thre trees outside, and for me this has been the first sign of Spring - for once, I'm quite excited for the days to get lighter. Tomorrow I plan to make an avocado cake but let's see what a lazy Sunday brings. 

Hope you're enjoying your weekend

MADELEINE SHAW'S READY STEADY GLOW BOOK

February 19, 2017


I love books of all kinds, and this year I wanted to invest in more reading material, especially cookbooks. I really enjoy cooking and I'm usually online trying to find recipes that'll help me create something delicious. However, instead of turning to the internet I wanted to find a book that would be able to assist me when I want to experiment in the kitchen or simply find something new. I had heard a lot of wonderful things about Madeleine Shaw's Ready Steady Glow book, and decided to give it a go.

Shaw has collected a range of recipes that are quick and easy to make for those who live busy city lives. She also includes meal plans using her recipes, and a guide to the basic Yoga Positions. I have been heavily inspired by her Buddha Bowl Recipe and have made lots of variations using potatoes, tofu, walnuts, olives and more. I'm excited to try more of her recipes, especially the desserts!
