Career juggling in 2 countries plus climate change and LGBTQ+ issues.
It’s Boxing Day and I’m currently sitting in bed. The last couple of days have been really nice and I’m feeling relaxed but also motivated. I’ve been eating, drinking a bit, watching loads of movies and not much else tbh. All this chilling out has got me thinking about 2018 and I’m excited for what’s to come. 2017 has been a year of growth and I’m happy to end it having ironed out some of the creases in my life. I’ve managed to create a balance amongst my careers which I’ve been trying to do for the last few years. In addition the blog has helped me to develop a better understanding of who I am and where I’m going. All in all things are really good and I’m feeling pretty darn grateful. View Post
‘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 on a fashion frenzy at the moment. I can’t stop thinking about outfits and I’m blaming it on this blog! Whilst I’m evolving my sense of style I’m still conscious of waste and the importance of investment pieces vs throw away fashion. As a blogger there can be a pressure to constantly wear something new. With that in mind I’m trying to rework individual pieces to create different looks without always buying something new – unless I decide it’s a worthy addition. Cultivating your own sense of style is a confidence booster but a passion for fashion can leave you with piles of clothes that have hardly been worn. In today’s post I’m taking this three piece outfit and explaining the place each item has in my wardrobe.
