So just over a week of Plastic Free July has passed, and although I've tried to cut down on single use plastic as much as possible there are a few items I've struggled with. I never set out to totally eliminate single use plastic from my life within a month. I'm a firm believer that … Continue reading Confessions From a ‘Plastic Free’ Journey
As I'm sure a lot of you have seen via Instgram, I went to a really inspiring talk this week hosted by Kate from Cheltenham Maman. Her guests were Sian Conway from Ethical Hour and Raechel Kelly. The event was held at Jolly Nice - an old petrol station which has been converted into an … Continue reading Plastic Free July
It's often hard to admit that we need to take a break from 'real life' every now and then. We are always busy with meetings, house work, family events, replying to emails, catching up with friends, food shopping, gardening....the list goes on (and on!). I think as Brits we also love to complain about how … Continue reading Don’t snub the ‘Staycation’
Seeing the Northern Lights has always been high on my travel wish list. I mean, do you even have a bucket list if that's not on there?! Towards the end of 2016 I bit the bullet and booked two flights to Stockholm. The original plan was to fly to the North of Sweden and spend … Continue reading A Swedish Roadtrip
As I'm sure you're all aware by now, one of the main aims of this blog is to inspire others to live a more sustainable life. I'm not talking move-into-a-mud-hut, only-eat-what-you-can-grow, shower-in-rain-water and craft-your-clothes-from-leaves sustainable, I'm talking achievable sustainable. For example being more aware of just how much plastic is used to package pretty much … Continue reading What a lovely package…
Before I get started, I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year! I'm struggling with normality and seem to have no idea what day it is, how we suddenly ended up in 2018, what I'm doing tomorrow and seriously questioning why I didn't ask anybody for a diary or calendar for Christmas! I … Continue reading The planet needs YOU!
I'm going to start this post with a big fat THANK YOU to each and every one of you that has persevered and is still here! It's been a slow journey but I'm super pleased to FINALLY be able to offer you a the first range of Lovesay and Mo jumpsuits! I'm hoping to be … Continue reading Welcome to the Lovesay and Mo Jumpsuit
I am going to begin this post by saying I am not here to preach - I am as guilty as anybody else for buying my clothes from anywhere and everywhere, mostly wherever I can get the best bargains. I recently learnt how beneficial buying organic cotton, clothing and food can be to so many … Continue reading Why go Organic?
As most of you know, I've been toying with the idea of giving the whole 'design' thing a proper go for a while now. I've taken the leap, handed in my notice and will be working part time alongside setting up my children's clothing line - Lovesay and Mo. Next week marks my penultimate week … Continue reading Onwards and upwards
I feel like this post should be titled 'Making sense of January/my life'. I know it's such a cliche but even this morning I still had no idea what the day/date was. Christmas and New Year is such a muddle of long relaxing days and loads of food and booze that I have really found … Continue reading Making sense of January
