• Ditching Fast Fashion – Six Months On

    Fast Fashion. It’s hard to go a day without somebody talking about the impact of fast fashion, its everywhere!  Since the Stacey Dooley documentary aired a few months ago, the blogging community has been awash with those opting to ditch fast fashion and change their shopping habits – although a lot of these views quickly vanished when Black Friday came around and my Twitter feed was jam-packed with affiliate links to fast fashion brands.

    Pizza Punks Newcastle: Anarchy in the Oven [AD]

    I love Pizza. Pizza is life. Pizza is my favourite food, so when I saw Pizza Punks was coming to Newcastle, I was pretty excited to try somewhere new for that pizza fix. If I had to choose one meal to eat for the rest of my life if would easily be Pizza. There are so many possibilities on toppings you would never tire of eating it every day. However, since turning Vegan back in July I’d accepted a life of mediocre pizza with no cheese. Vegan cheese is quite difficult to get right. I’ve tried quite a few and there’s…
