Transitioning to Cruelty-Free Beauty

It’s been a while since I’ve spoken about beauty on here. To be honest there isn’t any real reason other than I’ve been more focused on fashion and slow living.

Outfit of the day from vacation to Cape Verde

Cape Verde Style Diary

In case you hadn’t already heard. I’ve just come back from a week of sun, sea and cocktails in Cape Verde. To be perfectly honest with you, we didn’t do much on our trip.

Welcome to The Sustainable Edit

I’m equal parts nervous and excited writing this post. I don’t think I’ve felt like this about a blog post since I hit publish on my very first post back in 2014. But I guess I better just get on with it and introduce you to The Sustainable Edit. I’ve been considering a name change […] Read more…

Read my thoughts on sponsored content and gifted items

Thoughts on Gifted Items

As someone who advocates conscious consumerism and minimalism the topic of gifted items and sponsored posts often plays on my mind. Blogging is an industry built around consumerism and marketing so there is a real conflict of interest when it comes to monetising a minimalist blog. Can you really promote conscious consumerism whilst dressed head […] Read more…

Coffee Morning Catch Up

Sorry for being a bit MIA this week. I really hate to use this word but I’ve been really busy. What with my new job and planning some major home renovations (more on that later) I haven’t had the time to blog. I thought I’d ease myself back into writing with a good old fashion […] Read more…
