‘Half a million tonnes of plastic microfibres are released per year from washed clothes – 16 times more than plastic microbeads from cosmetics – contributing to ocean pollution.’ – Dame Ellen MacArthur
Fashion is one of the many things that contribute to climate change. As a fashion and lifestyle blogger I feel it’s my duty to learn about the effects fashion has on our planet. Thanks to a recent interview with Stella McCartney I learned that microfibres from synthetic materials are polluting our seas.
I’m wearing a handmade wool scarf from Winter in Holland.
IT’S TIME TO WRAP UP…..
Coat season has arrived and I couldn’t be happier. I’m currently into anything long because it allows a real style statement whilst keeping the toosh nice and warm. I went a bit 80’s with this look by adding the vintage style sunglasses and tapered jeans. It’s a bit different for me and I kinda like the change. View Post
I say this every year but ‘I can’t believe it’s Christmas time already‘.
The preparations are my favourite part of the holidays. There are so many nice things happening and everything looks so pretty and cozy. It’s time to get a tree and start planning the dinner. Turkey, goose or duck, who can decide? Every year I have a list of rituals. There’s mince pies, champagne, brussel sprouts, a selection of movies that gets longer every year. Because it wouldn’t be Christmas without watching the snowman and shedding a tear when he melts at the end. This time I’ve added a festive jumper to the mix. Not any old jumper I might add. It’s an ‘iconic Ralph Lauren jumper’ that’ll last for years to come – and I’m struggling to cope with how cute it is.
Kronaby have launched a new collection of connected watches and they let me choose one as a gift. I first featured Kronaby in this post and I really like the brand because it’s different.
I must stop wine-ing…
Last night I made a mushroom bourguignon, which according to Jamie Oliver’s recipe, requires half a bottle of red wine. I love a bit of vin rouge on a cold dark night so I happily sloshed that wine into the pan. I served the bourguignon with mashed potato and the whole thing tasted great. This morning I woke up with a hangover though so perhaps I should have left it until tonight! And before you ask I didn’t drink the other half bottle to myself ; )
