Fight Against Plastic: An Experiment

With Boots announcing their plan to ban plastic bags in the news this past week, it reminded me of my aim to write more on being environmentally conscious. With time on my hands, I'm able to read up on and learn different lifestyle changes I can make. In this post, I'll include the things I've [...]

How I’d Like to Spend My Summer

A month ago today I finished my first year at uni and surprisingly I've now only just been thinking of all the things I'd like to do with the rest of the time I still have off. Since I've been writing them down every time I thought of a new one, I thought I'd share [...]

Why My Bedroom is *RIDICULOUSLY* Tidy

*'Physical clutter causes mental clutter'* Dr Emerson Wickwire has explained that clutter in the bedroom affects your sleep because of its mental impact. The clutter activates the brain and therefore disrupts sleep. Without knowing that logical statement, I've always lived by a clean room helps towards a good sleep. So in today's post of being [...]

What I’ve Been Up To…

Usually, if I've missed a couple posts, I don't find it too difficult to get back into blogging (touch wood, I've never been gone much longer than that). But the past few weeks have been so full on, I don't know where to start. Maybe we should start with an achievement. Last week, I finished [...]

Bank Holiday Weekend OOTD #28

The past few (5 to be exact) posts I uploaded have actually been going towards one of my modules for uni. However, writing them made me realise they're the type of things I want to continually post. The difficulty being, it takes a lot more time, which until the end of May rolls around, I [...]

Taking Inspiration from the Harris

Something I don't write a lot about on this blog, is where I get my inspiration from to help with my course. If you didn't know, I'm currently coming towards the end of my first year of University, studying Fashion. Due to the creative nature of the degree, I'm always aware of what could inspire [...]

Broken Nature Exhibition- Milan

Today- 22nd April- is Earth day, therefore finding it very appropriate to write about an exhibition I visited at the Triennale di Milano titled 'Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival'. I found each piece fascinating, so I thought I'd highlight a few of my favourites in a post. Figure 1 & 2- Plastiglomerate One [...]

How I’m Stopping Contributing to Fast Fashion

Globally, the second most polluting industry is fashion. This alarming information appeared in Stacey Dooley Investigates 'Fashion's Dirty Secrets' (BBC, 2018). Since then, I've gained a growing awareness to the state of the environment and the particular effect the fashion industry is having on it. After reading various sources, I've accumulated my own list of [...]

The Effect of Fast Fashion

Currently, the fast fashion industry is catastrophically damaging our environment, and whilst it's doing so in numerous ways, I wanted to research a particular avenue; water. That being arguably one of the most important factors- we need to look after- that needs to also be sustained. Something that can be found in the majority of our wardrobes [...]

Italy Photography

Towards the end of March, I went on a University organised trip to Italy. Each day was very different but also packed with a plethora of places to visit. I of course, took many pictures that inevitably were going to end up in a blog post- this one if you hadn't guessed by the title. Sunday [...]
