We made an Ethical Directory

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll hopefully know this already but in October last year my friend Katherine Heath and I launched our ethical directory, More This. Less That.  Katherine and I met almost 2 years ago now via Instagram and bonded over our shared passion for ethical living and the many amazing independent

Paris je T’aime

I’m definitely not the first person to fall for the charms and romantic grandeur of Pairs. There’s just something about the city that has me swooning at every café, door and street corner. I used to work for a French company, which meant trips to the head office in Paris every 6 months or so.

Looking More Closely with Aerende X Freedom Acts

The women in my family have a reputation for collecting useful pouches for putting things in –  jewellery, make-up, passports or just those precious bits and pieces you know you’ll definitely misplace unless they’re stored safely in a pouch. So when I heard my favourite ethical homeware store Aerende had collaborated with Mel Wiggins and

Emily & Khadi

The main reason I write this blog is to be able to shout about the small designers and companies I stumble upon, who are doing amazing, innovative things and that I wish more people knew about. Usually I find them, or they find me, via Instagram. Something I will always love about Instagram as a

10 X 10 X 10 Summer Wardrobe Challenge

July turned out to be a month of challenges for me, I did #NoBuyJuly (another post on that later) and also finally got round to trying the 10 x 10 x 10 wardrobe challenge – where you use 10  pieces (clothes and shoes) to create 10 different looks over 10 days. Although I wouldn’t describe

Favourite Ethical Homeware Brands

This week I’m sharing my favourite places to source ethical homeware. You can see my first post in this series on ethical fashion brands here. My boyfriend and I currently rent with friends, so we don’t have a huge amount of space to play with when it comes to decor, or the opportunity to really put our stamp on the flat, but I

Natural Skincare with Kindred & Wild

I’m very lucky not to have troublesome skin, but as a result I’ve never had to be very particular about what skincare products I use. I don’t really have a strict skincare routine or any go-to brands that I swear by. Recently I’ve made more of an effort to buy natural, good quality products, although I’m forever sceptical about what’s actually

FAVOURITE ETHICAL FASHION BRANDS

I’ve wanted to write a post like this for ages, and have finally got round to it – it’ll be the start of a new mini-series where I share some of my favourite fashion, homeware and beauty brands with you. I’ve deliberately made sure that all the ones I’ve included have a ‘realistic’ price point, ranging from £30 to about

EMBRACING A SLOWER APPROACH TO TRAVEL

I had wanted to visit Lisbon for so long, and so spent the weeks prior to our trip pouring over the photos and blog posts that had helped inspired our decision to go, talking to friends and colleagues who had already been, taking notes and compiling lists of essential places to visit – trying to make sure that we didn’t miss anything out

MY EASY AT-HOME FACIAL

Living in London, I’m really aware of the amount of dirt and pollution that my skin is exposed to every day. Although I always take my make-up off before going to bed and wash my face in the shower, on the weekends I like to do a deeper pore cleanse – nothing too fancy mind you,
