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

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

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,

A SEASONAL SHIFT: SPRING

You never feel more ready for a season than spring do you. And with this year’s snowfall its arrival has felt even more overdue than usual. As well as the light mornings and evenings, I’m ready for the influx of colour that comes with the blooming of spring: pink blossom on the trees, purple and yellow crocuses poking their heads through,

A HOLISTIC FACIAL WITH BOTANY

For anyone reading who hasn’t come across Botany before, it’s a beautiful homeware and plant shop in Clapton, East London. The team also host regular events (I’ve been to their Happy House Plants workshop and their Wildflower Walk) and more recently they’ve opened up The Treatment Room at the back of the shop, offering a range of holistic treatments including facials,

THE BOOKS THAT HAVE STAYED WITH ME

I’ve recently started reading A Little Life by Hanna Yanagihara, after being recommended it by a few people, and I’ve never known a book create such an emotional response before. It got me thinking about the books and characters that have really stayed with me and that I often find myself thinking back to. Not a finite list, but here

A SEASONAL SHIFT: WINTER

I know we slipped into winter way back in December but with the distraction of Christmas it isn’t until now that I’m really starting to feel the weight of the dark mornings and cold, grey days. I don’t usually take the turning of the year too seriously and am never normally one to set resolutions or intentions, however this year I

A FESTIVE TABLE WITH THE LINEN WORKS

No matter how many people you have round for Christmas, the morning always passes in a blur of preparation and excitement. One of my favourite moments each year is the climax of the day and what usually feels like the first real moment of calm – when we all gather to sit down around the table, and

TIPS FOR STEPPING AWAY FROM YOUR SCREEN

As a social media editor and Instagram fan, I am so guilty of looking at my phone all day everyday. And when I’m not looking at my phone, chances are I’m looking at my laptop or the TV. Minimising screen time can often feel daunting, especially as we’re constantly being told we’re addicted to our devices. We all
