    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…

    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…

    Ethical Alternatives : CÉLINE TRIO

    I’ve been looking for a nice cross body bag for a while now, something I can use on nights out (LOL on those are rare occasions) but also something I can use for work. With my job sometimes I spend days on end out shopping with a suitcase or shopper in tow so a cross body is ideal for me to access my purse, ipad and tape measure. The famous Céline Trio was recently bought back on to my radar and I realised that it would be the perfect solution. The three (Same size) pockets would be SO useful for staying organised during work trips, and I believe that one…

    Weekend Thoughts : Default Slavery

    I’m an ethical blogger but at the weekend I caved and bought a earrings from a high street shop because I was tired, wanted something nice and couldn’t be bothered to go to the charity shops. So a few weeks ago I wrote a post where I laid out all the outfits I wanted to wear to various upcoming weddings, (you can read it here). However when it came to two of the most recent weddings I realised that actually the Vivienne Westwood dress is more than a little snug on me now and is definitely not appropriate for a casual country wedding. Luckily I had the pink dress on…

    Sunday Confessions

    One of my favourite podcasts is ‘The Guilty Feminist’, it’s hilarious and I urge you to go and listen now – not to go too far off on a tangent but the stories and anecdotes they tell have really helped me to process why some things irritate and annoy me and to then articulacy explain why. Anyway they start each episode with a confession of something they have done or thought that is non-feminist. I really love the concept as it instantly takes the pressure off a rather serious topic, and a topic which there is a lot of confusion around. so I thought it might be a cool thing that…

    Weekend Thoughts : Cruelty free animals or humans?

    A few questions that have been bugging me this week. I’ve asked questions before about the reasons ethical beauty is more accessible than fashion, as it’s something that affects us directly. (You can read that here) But that was more about consumers in general. This week I’m thinking more specifically about on-line influencers… If you are promoting, buying and using cruelty free make-up and beauty brands, then on the same platforms showing off your high-street clothing, is that not hypocritical ? Again I know some of it comes down to affordability and I am completely aware that a lot of ethical fashion just isn’t affordable for everyone, and of course we…

    Pick-me-up Purses and Pouches

    When I’ve told people about starting this blog a few of them have then gone on to ask for recommendations for a certain product, which I love. It’s one of the reasons I wanted to start writing the blog in the first place and why I have made an Index to collect all the brands I find in one place. One of my friends told me she was looking for a new pouch to replace one which was far too tired, so I jumped to the challenge to find suitable replacements. Over the last few weeks have been keeping my eyes peeled on Instagram, other blogs and in shops for…
