National Refill Day – Save Resources, Save Cash!

As we become more aware of the toxic levels of waste that are polluting our planet and our oceans, a really simple way to cut down on plastic bottles and packaging is to use refill options where possible. These are now available in many zero waste stores for food and drink, refill stations for toiletries…

Zero Waste Week & Food Packaging

Zero Waste Week is here again and I’m still not 100% zero waste. In this modern world, where plastic packaging is everywhere, I’m not sure it’s just so easy to be completely zero waste. But we can all do our bit. I’ve written several articles on different zero waste items I use, and these can…

Love Perfume, Love Acorelle.

I’m not sure if you’ve ever thought about what goes into making the perfume you happily spritz onto your skin on a regular basis. Many perfumes contain a mix of chemicals that have been linked to hormone disruption and cancer. Many of the ingredients in perfumes can also lead to allergies, and affect those with…

Random Tea… Chocolate Orange Goodness!!!

It’s National Chocolate Week! On reading back over past posts, however, it appears I write about chocolate quite a lot (hmm, I wonder why) and I thought I’d mix it up a bit!  And it just so happens that the lovely people at Revolution Tea sent me a sample of their Orange Chocolate Green Tea to…

Random Fun Stuff… Book Benches of London!

During the Summer, there were some wonderful pieces of art displayed around London. Amazing benches in the shape and decor of some of our most loved books, brought to us by Books about Town. We were lucky to find lots of them down the road from us, in Greenwich!   For those of you who…

Random Food… Organic Goodness!

As you may be aware by now, I’m a great lover of boxes of stuff sent through the post on the monthly basis. As it’s Organic September, I’m going to share my organic favourites (not that the rest of the stuff isn’t fantastic) from the three boxes received this month – Flow Box, The Vegan…

Random Cake… 1066 Cake Stand!

If you’re looking for delicious vegan cakes, bakes and sweet treats, look no further than the wonderful, independently run 1066 Cake Stand in Hastings. I’ve never been to the store itself, but this hasn’t stopped me indulging in yummy goodness from the vegan and gluten free kitchen (one of their two kitchens is entirely gluten…

Random Beauty… A Few of My Favourite Things

As it’s organic week, and around 95% of my toiletries and cosmetics are totally organic, I thought it would be a good time to share some of my favourites and essentials with you! Before I show you the contents of my cupboard, I just want to give you a few good reasons for switching to…

Random… PussyCat Riot! Cats Against Cyber Censorship

Imagine a world with no images of cats on the internet… pretty dull isn’t it? Well, in many countries internet censorship has gone crazy and there are millions worldwide who can’t access much of YouTube or Facebook. They probably have much more time to get things done in a day, without the distraction, but still, it’s…
