Does anyone else have to look at their calendar to try and remember what has happened over the last week? My memory is awful. I went for an interview yesterday and got through the first round so that’s pretty big news from my week. It sounds like the perfect job for me: part time, local,… Read More Cruelty free cosmetics, a strong pose and a unicorn sandwich. #LittleLoves
Ah ‘me time’. How often do you hear that phrase? I must say it on average 30 times a day and what it really means is ‘please just leave me the hell alone for five minutes!’. It is something that is personal to everyone and it becomes even more important once you have kids, because… Read More What is ‘me time’ and how do you get it?
Veganism, sustainability… it’s all a big learning curve for my family and I, but we’re trying our best. If you caught my earlier post on sustainable living, I talked about how switching to Ecotricity could make a massive impact to the planet with such little effort from you, today I want to talk about another… Read More Cleaning Cupboard Staples – sustainable, vegan friendly essentials.
Since we moved into our house last December, we have concentrated on getting the downstairs decorated. That is the bit people see and was our focus really, so we looked like we had our act together and life wasn’t quite as chaotic as it really was. I have shared an office tour with you, you… Read More How to get a fresh, minimalist feel to your bedroom.
If you were to ask my husband to describe me, he would probably start with ‘bloody mental’. I am a bit scatty, I get all flustered sometimes when I am trying to hold a conversation and let my thoughts run away with themselves. I am also ridiculously emotional since having my daughter and find myself… Read More Why I’m Learning to Meditate.
Where has the summer gone?! A few weeks ago we were cavorting about in dresses and sunglasses which lasted until the weekend just gone and now it’s back to wellies and raincoats. Luckily we did manage to enjoy the sunshine while it was here with a few National Trust visits, but this week has mostly… Read More Rain, rain, go away… #LittleLoves
I have spoken before about how leather seems to by synonymous with quality and durability. It is almost a right of passage to head off to get your first pair of leather shoes as a kid, you wouldn’t be seen dead in anything other than leather shoes at an interview (bit ironic that something died so you… Read More Let’s talk about vegan leather.
I spend a hell of a lot of time searching for information on what is going on in the ‘vegan’ community, things like which restaurants are finally adding vegan options to their menus or which supermarket has started stocking my favourite dairy free milks. I thought it might be useful to do a little monthly ’round… Read More Vegan News Round Up – June 2017
I wasn’t sure how to approach this post. I considered making the title ‘How can you be more ‘green’?’ but then I worried people wouldn’t click on it because it seemed too preachy. It’s hard to find a balance between sharing knowledge that you think is interesting and important and becoming the guy everyone scrolls… Read More A quick and easy way to become more sustainable today.
I woke up this morning to the news to see that Manchester had been victim to a suspected terror attack. I spent this weekend in Manchester at a blogging conference so I feel a bit ‘closer’ to this tragedy than I might normally. I cannot believe that someone has targeted a concert primarily attended by children.… Read More How do we talk to our children about terrorism?
