Why I *Never* Pay Full Price

I recently posted the below image on Instagram as the dress I’d bought early in 2020 had been reduced from £69 to £6.90! What a saving I thought.

How I came to start my sustainability journey

I’ve been blogging for years now and never really settled on my content. There’s lots of topics I love don’t get me wrong.

You know those minimalist shots that you see on Instagram or those ideas in your head that slow living is all second hand, mismatched and old? Well I’m saying it doesn’t have to be.

Creating Sustainable Shopping Habits

The word ‘sustainable’ is cropping up more and more recently and with good reason.
