Random Fashion … Who Made Your Clothes?

‘Who made your clothes’? In the world of fast fashion, companies are looking to save money. And what’s the quickest way to do it? Cheap and unfair labour practices. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not only pointing the finger at cheap, bargain rich clothing stores. I’m talking about huge designer brands too, who have…

Random Fun Stuff … Sights & Sounds of London (Greenwich & Docklands)

There’s never a shortage of things to do in London, and if you know where to look, many of them are for free. The annual Greenwich & Docklands International Festival is one of those gems – a whole 8 day extravaganza of theatre, music and art, spanning Royal Greenwich, Mile End, The Queen Elizabeth Olympic…

Random Fashion … Festival Fever!

It’s only a few sleeps until the fields of Worthy Farm open their gates again for Glastonbury 2014. The weather is set to be hot and sunny, but in traditional Glastonbury style, there will most likely be rain… and rain means mud! So, I’m sure you’ve all got your trusty wellies ready (unless you like…

Random Fun Stuff … Curse of the Mummy @ The British Museum

Friday 13th is often considered an unlucky day, by those of a superstitious nature. I’m a bit of an oddball, however, and have always found it to be rather lucky – a day where good things happen. You would have therefore seen me sporting a t-shirt emblazoned with little black cats on the Friday just…

Friday Randoms … Have a Green & Sunny Weekend!

The sun is shining, the weekend is just a hop and a skip away, and with the temperatures set to stay in the 20s, the great outdoors is calling! There are lots of things going on this weekend, around the country. In Bristol, it’s the start of Big Green Week, and for those of us…

Random Food … Vegan Breakfast & Lunch Ideas

I’m always on the look out for new and tasty ideas for breakfast and lunch. Particularly lunch, as it can be a challenge mixing it up when you’re at work, without the freedoms of your fridge/toaster and oven to use as you wish. Sometimes lunches can get repetitive and it’s great to mix it up. So,…

Tuesday Randoms … Making Stuff & Workshops

Happy Tuesday and sorry for the lack of a Monday Random yesterday – it was my birthday and I spent all day doing, well … nothing! It was hot, and the balcony was calling. Anyway, on the tube this morning, I was reading the latest edition of Time Out London magazine and spotted a really…

Random Fashion … My Love of Upcycled & Recycled Clothes

Yesterday was World Environment Day (5th June 2014), and it got me thinking, as usual, about doing my bit. And what better way to start, than in the wardrobe? There’s been a recent upsurge in the popularity of recycling and refashioning clothes – and it’s hardly surprising. One of the best ways to save money…

Random Foodies & Goodies … myWellBoxie

Surprise … I’ve found another monthly box of food and goodies to talk about. But this one is a little bit different and you have just over one day to secure your box of goodness!  myWellBoxie came about when Anne-Line, co-founder and director was searching for a subscription box that contained not just food, but fitness/health accessories…

Monday Randoms … How to make Monday Mornings better!

Oh Monday, here you are again. Even if you love your job, there’s not really anyone who likes getting out of bed on a Monday morning, after the chilled and relaxed pace of the weekend and the lovely long dreamy mornings.  Unless you are a Monday morning person, but do any of those really exist?…
