Sharing Something Special…

Sharing Something Special…


May 28, 2020
Besides all the wonderful sourdough we’ve been baking during quarantine, I’ve also been cooking up a special little something that’s finally ready to make it’s debut… This November, Eddie and I will be welcoming a baby boy into our lives! We found out about our little one before Coronavirus flipped our worlds upside down. Since […]
Caldo Verde (Portuguese Green Soup)

Caldo Verde (Portuguese Green Soup)


May 19, 2020
Let me first start by saying that I have never been a soup person. I never crave it, I never order it out in restaurants, I just simply never understood the appeal. My mother (from Scotland) grew up eating soup every day no matter the season! To her, it’s like a massive hug in a […]
I’m Leaving Social Media… Here’s Why

I’m Leaving Social Media… Here’s Why


April 20, 2020
It’s been nearly two months since I’ve posted anything on Instagram and even longer on my blog. I’ve broken cardinal rule #1 for bloggers: “Post consistently and often.” But, my mental health imploded around the beginning of March (prior to the Coronavirus madness which has only exacerbated it). I needed a break. Social media has […]
The Best Sustainable Brands

The Best Sustainable Brands


February 24, 2020
I’ve been asked countless times over the past few years what my favourite sustainable brands are, so I think it’s probably time I drum up a pretty comprehensive list already, hey? (: This post is broken down into a few categories (but in no particular “favourite” order) to try and make it easier to search. […]
Cashew Crema Recipe

Cashew Crema Recipe


February 18, 2020
This has been one of my most highly-requested recipes to put on the blog and what’s wonderful about it, is that it’s so quick and easy (truly!) to make. Cashew crema has been an absolute staple in my diet as a vegan. Great tasting vegan food is all about spices and sauces to compliment those […]

How to Give Up Fast Fashion Forever – Your Instagram Questions Answered


February 10, 2020
Last week I did a poll on Instagram asking about fast fashion: specifically who buys from fast fashion brands and why. Your answers were interesting, different, and insightful so I wanted to tackle them here on a blog post to hopefully help you understand why fast fashion is so bad and, ultimately, how to shop […]
How To Sustainably Decorate Your Home

How To Sustainably Decorate Your Home


February 3, 2020
This has been in the works for… well, since we moved into our home in October! I hadn’t quite felt ready to share anything (other than a few sneak peaks on Instagram Stories) until it felt like a home and I could share all my recommendations with an honest approach. Noticeably, the home is still […]
Cuup Bra Review

Cuup Bra Review


January 28, 2020
I’ve done a lot of talking about sustainable underwear on my Instagram but mainly focused on what I like to call “sleepy” bras (literally bras that I feel comfortable enough to sleep in). For years now I’ve worn the same wired bras and knew they weren’t quite the right fit. I’d say about 98% of […]
New Year’s Resolutions 2020

New Year’s Resolutions 2020


January 23, 2020
Last year I wrote (& published) my New Year’s Resolutions here for the first time. This year, Eddie and I sat around the kitchen table once we returned from Florida and wrote our resolutions for 2020. I had to reference my 2019 resolutions because I hadn’t actually re-read them since I wrote them! Not an […]
5 Things I Learned From My 2-Week Digital Detox

5 Things I Learned From My 2-Week Digital Detox


January 12, 2020
Before beginning our trip back home to visit our families for the holiday season, I decided that I would do the biggest digital detox I’ve done to date: 2 weeks. My definition (different to others) of a digital detox encompasses turning my phone off and trying to avoid my laptop where possible. I don’t avoid […]
