In the interest of honesty, I feel like I should tell you where this blogging journey of mine began. And – spoiler alert – it ain’t all that “sustainable”. It was 2012, I was 16 and I decided to start “the next big” fashion blog. It was all cheap-as-chips H&M hauls and OOTDs on a waitressing wage.
So, basically, that blog was the absolute antithesis of everything I do now.

Life’s funny like that, huh?

Since then, I’ve had my fair share of “holy shit” type revelations. And these days you’ll usually find me typing away at a blog post or rambling on my Instagram stories about my journey to more ethical living, often with a cup of chocolate oat milk in hand.

I blog about ethical lifestyle topics including how to ditch fast fashion, reduce your plastic consumption and live in a cruelty-free way, one day at a time. And don’t worry, I won’t tell you that you have to buy twelve-billion mason jars or have a compost heap to do your bit. Making shifts to the way you live and changing your habits certainly isn’t easy. However, I’m a big believer that sustainability is worth the slight ball-ache.

I’ve worked with some completely badass brands in my time including AllPlants to chat about how I’m transitioning to a more plant-based diet, TOTM to chat about eco-friendly sanitary products and how (gasp) I learnt not to hate my period, and Tender Essence with more period chat about how to use essential oils to make yourself feel less crappy.

If you’re new to these parts, take a wander around and meet me over on Instagram and Twitter to have a chat!
