“First one to find a shoe wins!” I yell whenever I arrive at a beach. Along with tampon applicators, toothbrushes and other plastic waste, I seem to find odd shoes washed up on the shoreline so frequently that I've made it part of every beach-clean I do. It's actually quite concerning.
Most shoes are made of complex materials and glues which can only be down-cycled or thrown into landfill. It's a massive, global problem and thankfully manufacturers like Adidas are now seeking to tackle it … Read More
I get asked a lot about what products I use and hear from people looking to become more plastic free, so heres a quick list of my top 10 bathroom must haves. Now you can go wipe your bum and be proud. Read More
This is the fourth in a series of overly honest product reviews. Seeing as you all seem quite interested in the goings on of my lady region I thought I’d throw my armpits into the mix too. I threw a poll on instagram asking who wanted to know more about The Natural Deo Co. and a whopping 97% of you answered “Yes Please I Smell”, so here you are.
And just a quick note to remind you this post is not sponsored, not paid, and no product was gifted (sigh). Read More
This is the third in a series of overly honest product reviews following the positive feedback from both my safety razor review and my period pants & mooncup review (you can read about my grazed labia here!)
I recently partnered with the Australian haircare brand Evo to post a series of photos on Instagram for their ‘don’t buy it – beauty is abundant, not in a bottle’ global brand campaign. Evo continues to shake up the status quo in the hair industry and as part of the deal I somehow got them to agree to me posting a completely honest, unedited review of their products. Evo claim to be “an innovative, professional hair product manufacturer with individuality and integrity; a manufacturer that speaks the truth” so I figured they couldn’t really refuse. I'm not paid to say any of the following and it is not #spon or #ad – these are my actual opinions ... Read More
This is the second in a series of overly honest product reviews, bought to you by some cringe worthy experiences, one mention of my labia and a small amount of credit card debt.
After the disconcerting success of my period pants and mooncup review in which you can read about my grazed labia here, I thought it best to continue on with product reviews that may also be useful to those of you wondering whether to make a purchase or not.
I recently bought a metal ‘safety razor’ and had quite a few questions and requests for reviews about it, so here goes, overly honest product reviews take two.
Side Note: I'm not paid to say this and it is not #spon or #ad. Read More
A lot of you have been asking about my swimwear over the past few months, so I thought I’d update and repost my sustainable swimwear guide. I try to buy everything I wear consciously and not fall into the consumerism trap too often (all though I'm occasionally slip up and find myself on the high street).
Side Note: This is not an ad. I don’t have any sponsors and I pay for all my swimwear, these are just genuinely the brands I wear and love. In no particular order... Read More
This is the first in a series of overly honest product reviews, bought to you by some cringe worthy experiences, one photo of my bum and a small amount of credit card debt.
After sharing my mooncup woes a lot of you requested feedback on my knickers, because, lets be honest now, how many pairs of your regular underwear has aunt flo destroyed? I know, i know. ALL. OF. THE. PAIRS. Including that very favourite pair that I refuse to throw away, even with the stains.
So here goes, the first in the series of overly honest product reviews is the much awaited, worryingly frequently requested, she thinx period panties. I'm sharing this because 100 million girls are missing school just because of their periods. Lets break the period taboo. Read More
I've been asked quite a few times what my sustainable travel essentials are. I always travel with a few simple items that mean I can refuse single use plastic, and here they are... Read More
I met Zoe at the launch of Backwash Magazine earlier this year and she gifted me two pieces from her collection. The jewellery is not only incredibly beautiful, but also made from recycled and eco silver where possible, and offcuts of different woods which would otherwise be wasted. The packaging is also made from eco natural cotton and cardboard. So lovely to see jewellery handmade in the UK with sustainability at its core. Read More
