Obsessed with El-Aich Designs

Obsessed with El-Aich Designs

Obsessed with El-Aich Designs I love Instagram, obviously because it’s full of inspirational imagery on a regular basis but also because it introduces me to new brands and independent sellers that I may not have found any other way. Since moving into my flat I have been slowly filling it...
Collective Inspiration - Holly Bantleman

Collective Inspiration – Holly Bantleman

Collective Inspiration – Holly Bantleman.   I was thinking recently how bloody lucky I am to have so many inspiring and frankly wonderful people in my life. But I don’t want to keep them all to myself! That line of thinking quickly drew me to kick off our Collective Indi...

Beauty Advent Calendars for 2015

Beauty Advent Calendars for 2015 Beauty advent calendars have grown massively in popularity over the last couple of years. Gone are the days of chocolate santa’s behind those doors, now we are far more interested in lipsticks and creams every day of December. This year’s selection is seriously impressive, with...
7 Amazing Hanging Baskets from Etsy

7 Amazing Hanging Baskets from Etsy

I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with hanging baskets. Even though I am notoriously known for killing plants quicker than you can say Baby Bio, I have started filling my flat with them. So many in fact that I am running out of space to put them. Until I...

Cruelty Free UK Perfumes

Cruelty Free UK Perfumes

Cruelty Free UK Perfumes I’ve found the switch to cruelty-free beauty and skincare relatively easy to be honest. Took a lot of research up front but now that I know which brands to use and covet it isn’t scary at all. The only thing that I haven’t yet purchased in my cruelty-free journey is perfume....

Matt & Nat Vegan Leather Bags & Shoes

Matt & Nat vegan leather bags I’d been after a new handbag for a while when I stumbled across the amazing lilac Matt & Nat bag below on ASOS. I’d previously bought a purse from them and always been impressed with their ethos and brand. I have been using my new two section shoulder bag...
Space NK haul

Space NK haul

Space NK haul   I’m not really sure a haul can consist of only 3 things, but then again anything from Space NK can be considered a haul as you always have to drop a certain amount of dollar. Now, I don’t need an excuse to spend my own money as I am a grown...
Cruelty Free Make-Up

Cruelty Free Make-Up

Cruelty Free Make-Up I recently made the decision to only use cruelty free make-up and skincare from now on. I stopped eating meat nearly 18 months ago and since then I’ve learnt more and more about sustainability, how animal products are used and what is actually in the products I use on a daily basis....

Saturday at Brockley Market

Saturday at Brockley Market Not been to Brockley Market yet? Well, you really need to rectify that then don’t you. If you’re looking for something to do this weekend then this is your sign. Good food, good drinks and fresh vegetables and flowers don’t come better in South London. And it is choc full of some...

4 ingredient (healthy) vegan cookies

4 ingredient (healthy) vegan cookies   I don’t know if I can claim complete credit for these guys, but I don’t ever remember following a recipe for them. They came about when I wanted a sweet treat but didn’t want to just reach for a chocolate bar or spend ages baking. They only have 4, yes...
A/W 2015 homeware from ASDA

A/W 2015 homeware from ASDA

The A/W 2015 homeware from ASDA has seriously impressed me. More and more ‘high street’ stores are upping their game in the homeware range, jumping on to trends that wouldn’t be amiss on the most popular of Pinterest boards. I’m still a huge fan of copper (sue me), so mostly everything below features it in...
No Spiralizer? No Problem!

No Spiralizer? No Problem!

If you haven’t heard of the Spiralizer yet, I imagine you must have been living under a cabbage patch. We have become a nation of manicured vegetable fanatics. There were 7,193 images on instagram when I searched for #courgetti today. I imagine that courgette sales since January must be at a record high. Which must be leaving the pasta makers at Napolina quivering in their beautiful...
The perfect backpack on a budget

The perfect backpack on a budget

Finding the perfect backpack on a budget is not the easiest job. I spent a good amount of last Summer looking for a stylish yet practical backpack that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. I had high hopes of splurging on the Whistles Verity, but at £240, it was a little out of my...
Lessons running has taught me - by my body

Lessons running has taught me – by my body

I bloody love running. For the past few years it’s been part of me and my identity – if I don’t run I don’t feel like me – it’s as simple as that. Now I’m not going to wax lyrical about ‘wow how it changed my life’ (but it did) or how it’s the best...
Raw vegan afternoon tea at La Suite West

Raw vegan afternoon tea at La Suite West

RAW afternoon tea that’s 100% vegan? Minuscule finger sandwiches, fluffy scones, moist sugary sponges teamed with velvety cream and jam. Impossible? Or so I thought! Since turning vegan 7 months ago, I had thought a traditional afternoon tea was a luxury I had parted ways with. Until my best girlfriend surprised me with a birthday...

Oeufs Epicées (spicy eggs to me and you)

It’s no secret that I love an egg, and a spicy one at that so I thought I’d share this latest HOT addition to my recipe scrap book! I cannot claim this recipe as my own, it was made for me by my friend Jim at his lovely holiday home (its the only reason I am...
