Secondhand Style #2 – They Call Me Mellow Yellow

  Secondhand Style #2 Top: F+F (Depop) | Trousers: Zara (Charity Shop) | Handbag: Accessorize (Charity Shop)  Back in 2017 I posted about a feature I was going to introduce called Secondhand Style. A series where I would be showcasing my favourite charity shop finds. At this time I was buying quite a lot of clothing from Depop and charity shops. But as the summer hit, I found myself shopping more and more on the high-street. So the series quickly dwindled. If you saw my last post you’ll know I’ve decided to give up fast fashion completely. So I’m happy…

Secondhand Style #1 – What an egg-cellent dress

As I mentioned in this post the majority of my wardrobe has been bought in charity shops, eBay and Depop. As a huge bargain hunter and savvy secondhand searcher, I want to start featuring these more often in my outfit posts. So I’ve decided to begin a little feature called Secondhand Style so you can see all the fab bits and bobs I’ve managed to pick up, and believe me there are loads.

January is here again and everything is back to normal – and to tell you the truth, I’m glad to get back to a routine again. The beginning of the year always brings an influx of resolution making, goals for the year ahead and everybody talking about what they want to…

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. Oh Well. I myself talked about my relationship with fast fashion in this post during the summer. Here I spoke about my decision to ditch fast…

Ethical Living: Five Changes I’ve Made to Live More Consciously.

Ethical living – the word on everybody’s lips at the moment. Now it’s not just about reducing the amount of plastic you use, but that’s a good start. Over recent months everybody has become more and more aware of the impact we are making on the planet. Coffee shops like Caffe Nero and Pret are rewarding you with discounts for bringing your own reusable cup when grabbing yourself a beverage. Iceland has vouched to remove the use of plastic in their own brand products by 2023. Over the past year or so it seems everybody is cottoning on to how…
