Valentine's Day

Zero Waste Valentine’s Day Do’s and Dont’s

What better way to show your love than giving a Halmark card on a Halmark holiday… Yeah right!
I’m a firm believer that people shouldn’t need a specific day to show their love for others but there’s no doubt about it, everybody loves Valentine’s Day and the loving feelings it promotes. And yes, I know I should be a bit more romantic haha!

You may have played this kind of cd to help you sleep at night or to bring some calmness to your day. Well, I’m pretty sure I’ve found the place where these sounds are recorded. And it’s in Guatemala!

Fast Fashion

How I avoid fast fashion whilst travelling

I recently watched the documentary called ‘The True Cost’ and it really got me thinking about my relationship with fast fashion. To be honest, in the past I didn’t really care much for the origin of my clothing (or stuff in general), I just liked and wanted the pretty end product.
