    Ethical shops taking over the world!

    This spring/ summer seems to be an excellent season for lots of new ethical style shops opening! This makes me incredibly happy because as we all know, VISIBILITY is one thing I think that is truly holding this movement down. So having more brick and mortar shops is BRILLAINT. It will aid in helping people to make sustainable and ethical choices SO much more easily, and hopefully help convert some as well 😉 My Pop-up shop and market map at Christmas was quite a success so I have decided to do a permanent version for the UK. I will keep adding to it the more I discover so PLEASE do…

    Ethical and Sustainable Sleepwear

    Pyjamas are for life, not just for Christmas Winter! I absolutely love pyjamas. I love them to be matching, i love them to be loose and comfy and of course I love them to look good enough to run to the corner shop for milk in. I will admit, incase it’s not already obvious, but i am a bit obsessive with them and I believe it’s important to have sets in all different weights for all the different seasons, haha. Sustainable Sleepwear Roundup I really wanted to do a bigger round up of ethical and sustainable pyjamas that are available for the UK, but i have found it a lot harder…

    Weekend Thoughts : Catch up and confessions

    Happy Sunday! The sun is out and the birds are chirping and after this weeks snow storm it feel like a complete breath of fresh air. I had a feeling this would happen, that despite all my good intentions to keep this blog updated along side my day job, it hasn’t of course happened. But I won’t go on about that, or make more excuses, so I thought I would do a small catch up post with some things that have been happening, things i’ve been discovering and enjoying. Also I do try to post at least daily on Instagram so make sure to follow me there too! First up…

    REDUCE : RECYCLE : REMAKE : RAEBURN

    Sustainability in high end fashion shouldn’t just be another trend. With this recent surge of designers looking to create more sustainable lines within their collections it’s hard not to be slightly cynical that, as is the nature of fashion, it’s just a fad and once the David Attenborough documentary, has faded from consumers minds, so too will the efforts of designers to be more mindful. (To be fair though I am by nature a cynic; I am cynical about everything and regularly have to check myself to ensure I’m not over doing it and about to be abandoned by my friends.) Exploring the world of Christopher Raeburn One designer I…

    DAGNY London

    Sustainable Luxury My ‘collections’ and book mark tabs on my browser and instagram are becoming laden with brands and companies I want to shout about. I know I say this a lot, but it seriously blows my mind how many people are out there making beautiful, gorgeous and interesting but conscious clothing. So I have to start somewhere and today is DAGNY day. The first thing that really drew me in was the selected colour palette and the beautiful prints. There is definitely a vintage vibe happening but it’s also very fresh and modern, and also pretty classic. The kind of clothes you buy because you absolutely love and will…

    12 Days of ….

    I decided, quite last minute, to do an on-line “ethical advent” calendar over on my Instagram. Each day highlighting an ethical item or company that would make a great gift idea, something happening, a DIY or anything really within the festive spirit. Anyway a few days in to it my phone was stolen, and I have only just got around to ordering a new (refurbished) one, which has made keeping my advent commitment up rather tricky. I’ve been going between borrowing my partners phone and trying to use my ancient I-pad which likes to crash just as I press “post”. Anyway I thought now that we are 12 days down…
