Delicate summery and refreshingly good
At the beginning of the impending lockdown listening to people’s concerns of what the future holds, practices changing and working from home, I decided that I would try my hand at growing vegetables.
With plenty to do I knew that this would also give me a chance to learn, nurture and hopefully reap some rewards too.
I have grown vegetables a handful of times before but never have I ever been a consistent grower.
Gardening is a peaceful practice and just being outside is good for the mind as well as the soul.
There are plenty of things that people own and use nowadays to help live waste-free lifestyles, be it metal straws or eco-friendly toothpaste. And while these products certainly help, there’s a lot more that can be done to really make a positive impact on the earth. Of course, it doesn’t have to be anything radical right away. For starters, you can do with changing some of your daily habits first.
Blue and Green Tomorrow reports that much of the world’s carbon footprints come from everyday activities such as driving cars, incorrect disposal of trash, and overusing home electricity.

Doesn’t your pet deserve the best? By best, we mean a beautiful bespoke bed created just for them. The lovely Cassie most definitely seems to think so.
So, I’ll start off by saying a huge hello and thank you to everyone that’s taking the time to read this blog post I’ve put together for Barnardo’s. I’ve created a look book featuring some of my favourite Barnardo’s finds and how I style them to create some of my favourite looks.
I started charity shopping when I was just 13. I picked up a black pinstripe blazer for just £1.99 and it quickly because a wardrobe staple of mine. Since October 2017 I started to re-embrace the slow fashion movement. I have been browsing weekly to collect some fabulous finds, initially wearing a mix of high street and vintage, but now wearing full-on charity shop looks. Lucky for me, we have not one, but two Barnardo’s stores in Worksop. The 99p store is always my first point of call!
