Read. Watch. Listen. | Volume 4

Well, reader: the world is a strange place right now (how many times have you heard that in the past few weeks?!). With an appreciation for the little things seemingly more heightened and routine habits and hobbies valued more than ever, things to read, watch and listen to have begun to take on a new importance for me; there… Continue reading Read.

I used a menstrual cup for the first time and here’s how I got on

For someone who has – honest! - taken some steps to make her bathroom a little less wasteful, the amount I’d been putting a menstrual cup off was a bit embarrassing. It was always something I’d do ‘next period’, except that next period I’d inevitably buy a box of tampons and then think ‘well, I'd better use these up first’. Last week,… Continue reading I used a menstrual cup for the first time and here’s how I got on

30 noughties films for anyone who needs a bit of nostalgia right now

I’ve never written anything about films because, if I do say so myself, I have truly terrible taste in them. But then I put up an Instagram post the other day about noughties films, and apparently everyone else does too! Congratulations, all of us. So, let’s face it; we’re living in strange and unsettling times. People will naturally deal with this in different… Continue reading 30 noughties films for anyone who needs a bit of nostalgia right now

A week in (unsuccessful) work outfits: WFH edition

This was supposed to be just another one of my week in work outfits posts, the twist being that I’m working from home right now, which given the current situation is not really a twist at all.   I’ll tell you what happened: I really wanted to get dressed a bit more *properly* after my first full WFH week saw me in… Continue reading A week in (unsuccessful) work outfits: WFH edition

Read. Watch. Listen. | Volume 3

Well, when I decided to start writing about the type of entertainment that can be consumed in your home as a blog series I had no idea just how relevant it would be just a few short months later. I know a lot of people have significantly more time than usual on their hands right now, but even for those for whom time is still in short supply,… Continue reading Read. Watch. Listen. | Volume 3

Twenty Twenty: a look ahead

Well, THIS has come around a little sooner than I anticipated. One moment I was eating sausage rolls for breakfast, downing quince gin liquer (found myself with three bottles of the stuff, don’t ask) and indiscriminately scoffing chocolates at any time of day or night, and the next I was awoken at 6am by a cuckoo (that’s… Continue reading Twenty Twenty: a look ahead

Three things that have happened since I stopped shopping

There are three weeks left of my three month ban on buying new clothes, shoes and accessories. You can read about Slow Fashion Season and why I decided to do it here, and I will be doing a more comprehensive post about what I’ve learnt and how I move forward when it’s officially over. For… Continue reading Three things that have happened since I stopped shopping

I’ve pledged to buy nothing new for three months and this is why

It feels impossible to believe (and really quite embarrassing to admit) now, but as recently as a year ago the environmental impact of our collective fast fashion habit hadn’t even crossed my mind. I picked up new things regularly and with little thought; a lunchtime Primark trip here, a ‘pop in’ to H&M on the… Continue reading I’ve pledged to buy nothing new for three months and this is why
