Ethical Food Shop

As someone who absolutely loves food, but wants to buy and eat a product that is sustainable and safe, is from a company that looks after its employees and does not damage the environment, I was very much looking forward to Ethical Consumer Magazine's latest issue. Every issue Ethical Consumer focuses on a specific area, in which … Continue reading Ethical Food Shop

Easter Weekend – Adventures on the Doorstep

I very rarely get to spend a weekend at home, nevermind a bank holiday weekend. That is why this Easter was very special as I got to spend it at home with my nearest and dearest exploring what is on my doorstep. Despite having lived in the East Midlands now for about four years I've … Continue reading Easter Weekend – Adventures on the Doorstep

Books

  I love books. Always have. As soon as I could read I was onto Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton, Dick King-Smith. I then progressed onto Jacqueline Wilson, Meg Cabot and my favourite, J.K Rowling.

Nottingham, it turns out, has plenty! … Continue reading Saturday Shop

When I found Luva Huva, an ethical lingerie brand based in Brighton, whose website hosts pictures of beautiful and delicate items I was quite sceptical as to whether they would provide bras to my size and comfort requirements. In the past I've struggled to find pretty bras that … Continue reading Luva Huva – Ethical Lingerie

Getting Christmas-ready

Finally all my decorating, shopping and wrapping is all done. I am Christmas-ready. Living in a small flat is difficult to decorate. So for it to feel festive I have hand picked some small pieces to dot around the living room. As a rule I do not send Christmas cards. I would rather give money to charity … Continue reading Getting Christmas-ready
