New 👓 and I feel completely different wearing them (my mum says I look more American but I don’t really know about that) 🍋 happy Sunday 🍋
📷 inspired by @carascam - these are the new books I’ve picked up this week. I’ve already finished hot milk and I really liked it! It’s not my usually read but I liked how different it was 😊 also do you have any book recommendations because I’m always on the hunt for new reads 📚
Feeling a lot better than I was when I took this photo (!!) but I passed my driving theory test yesterday and I feel very happy about because I feel like driving is one of those necessities you’ve got to do at some point (albeit slightly unwillingly and I probably wouldn’t learn if I lived in a big city) so I’m just glad I’ve done the first step towards passing 🚗
This blue coat is literally my favourite clothing item ever and it goes surprisingly well with my @palomawool trousers. There was meant to be a post going up tomorrow but I’m still feeling pretty ill so it may be postponed 📝
Trying on outfits pretending it’s summer and not still in the depths of winter ❄️ (ahh cannot wait to get these trousers back out though). I hope you all have a lovely Saturday ❣️
👕NEW POST👕 can wool be ethical? It’s a question one of my best friends asked me and it’s the topic of my new post - I would love to know your thoughts on the matter as it isn’t something I’ve thought about a lot till now ✍️ the link is in my bio!
So I got send some body scrub and butter from @greenpeopleuk this week (second pic) and they’re actually working wonders for my skin and for once I haven’t had a reaction to new products 🙌 yesterday I finally made the leap from blogger to Wordpress and my blog is looking a little different (although it is basically the same) but I figured I needed to make the jump at some point 🏃♀️ I hope you’ve all had a great weekend!
Totally unrelated picture but it doesn’t matter because my first book club review is up! Sorry for those of you that are French and read it because my grammar is probably appalling, but with time it’ll improve I am sure 📖 the link is in my bio (Ps. I’ve tagged some French blogs you should totally read if you want to read some French that is actually written properly)
💻NEW POST💻 an interview with @whatsyourlegacy.co.uk in my #anewageinspiration series 🌸 it’s one of my favourites and was hugely insightful and indeed inspirational ☺️ perfect for some Monday motivation 💖 the link is in my bio
It seems like I only wear one outfit lately but what can I say, I love @palomawool ❤️ (and my @the_acey scarf). Taking a few blog pics today, getting my eyes tested because they’re getting worse and I’m getting round to writing my first book club review which will be up at the end of this week! 🌼
@thehambledon has a display of magazine cuttings on their wall and it is seriously giving me room inspiration, I just need to buy the magazines first 🌻 I hope you all have a lovely Saturday ☺️
🏃♀️NEW POST🏃♀️ I’ve joined the gym which means I may need to buy some ethical gym clothes even if I will probably not manage to go for a long time, I tried 🙌 there’s also some gym clothes from ethical brands as recommendations! The link is in my bio
Had such a nice afternoon, drinking tea and eating carrot cake and then... (here comes the story time) I’m waiting at the bus stop, looking at my college emails like the great student I am and what goes past? My bus. I see it go, slightly madly say ‘that’s my bus’ to onlookers and proceed to try and chase the bus back up to college in a manic fret. Not a good idea, nor did I make it (ending up getting another college bus) BUT the moral of this story is think things through unlike myself and boy am I glad it’s Friday 🙌
🌻 NEW POST 🌻 discussing some ethical fashion bloggers that you should add to your reading list this year (there’s a long list of some you should totally follow as well including @ronmcquade and @ethicalevolution) the link is in my bio 🌟
Evening 🌜I’ve just come back from a driving lesson which was actually pretty successful and I’m about to go to a history lecture which I’m super excited for (I kinda love history if you couldn’t already tell lol) 🌟 ps. do you actually enjoy these chatty insta posts? Pls let me know, merci
Started reading little fires everywhere because I need some reading that is completely separate from college (although I am a fan of a dystopian novel). It was the first day back at college today and boyyy am I feeling tired, definitely heading for an early night 😴 I hope you had a great Monday!
@thehunnaband last night were so incredible and I just 💖 concerts 😊 finally got my haircut today and it’s back to short, not sure why I always leave it so long to get it cut 🤔 I hope you’ve all had a great first week of 2018!
Nicest way to kick of 2018 with one of my friends birthdays yesterday 🍰 for once I have a really good feeling about this year and I’m going to (try) to make sure it stays that way 🙌⭐️
Just a few photos from this year because I couldn’t possibly pick just one, 2017 you’ve had ups and downs but a year wouldn’t be as fulfilling if it didn’t have its lows. But this year has been the best, I’ve made some memories (not all of which are included because I’m not sure if my friends would particularly want them online) I’ve met new people, fallen in 💛 with the subjects I’m doing and my blog and hope it’s has inspired you, even just a little; thanks for supporting EC in everything this year 😇 I’m going into 2018 without the view of becoming a new me, but becoming a better version of who I already am. I hope you have a lovely New Year’s Eve and a Happy always, and that 2018 treats you well, see you in New Year!! 🌟✨💚💙💖
Most of the @glossier makeup isn’t vegan however it is cruelty free and there are a few products that are I believe (@crueltyfreebecky has the lowdown on this if you wanted to know more about which products are vegan). I’ve tried them already and I can confirm they are incred, especially the overpriced brow gel 😉
My mum would hate me if she knew this was going online BUT I thought it was fitting to share seeing as it’s Christmas time and I think it’s quite sweet if you ignore the fact I was very skeptical of the present 🎅🏽
It’s been a greener Christmas this year in more ways than one! 🌿 so so grateful to be able to ask for a few ethical pieces this year, and for once there’s not a navy shade in sight (ps. @the_acey put a message on the back of the card for when my dad bought it and if that’s not incredible marketing then I don’t know what is, I ❤️ the scarf)
Happy Christmas everyone 🎄 I hope you have all had a great day whether you celebrate it or not 🌟✨❤️
It’s the Christmas holidayyyysss 🎄🌟✨🎁 looking forward to chill, do nothing and also be productive (one can only hope). Nevertheless, I’m very happy to be off college for two weeks 👌
Winter sunsets are literally the prettiest thing 🌟 I break up from college tomorrow and I’m wayyy too excited about it because I definitely need a rest, this term has definitely been the longest
🎥 NEW POST 🎥 ethical documentaries are a great way to find out more about fast fashion and ethical fashion so I wrote a post about a few of my favourite sustainable directories, the link is in my bio 😊 #ethicalfashion #sustainablelifestyle
There’s something pretty gorgeous about a winter sun ☀️ (even if it doesn’t mean that the weather is any warmer). There’s only one week left of college and although this week is definitely the hardest, it does feel a lot like Christmas 🎄❄️🎅🏽
Happy birthday to my favourite person in the 🌍 I hope you have the best day 🎄
@thehambledon looking incredibly Christmassy today, Winchester is definitely one of the nicest places at Christmas time ❣️
Always a fan of looking at clothes that I can’t afford (although I do have a few @palomawool on my mind as a Christmas present to me from me 🎄) off to see the Nutcraker tonight and it feels like the perfect way to kick of this festive month 🎅🏽
