MY FIRST EXPERIENCE AS A FASHION WRITER

London: crowded public transport, inflated price tags and the grey, polluted sky that looms over the city. A place I always knew I would have to move to but not necessarily find suitable. I would have to swap the comfort of my quaint home-town to the daunting fashion capital where all my career aspirations would come…

FIVE FASHION READS FOR 2019

Every year I set myself the goal to read more outside of my degree. With fashion and sustainability being both huge passions of mine, I’ve recently expanded my book collection to include some titles that I am really excited to get stuck into and others I have already read. DRESS SCANDINAVIAN – PERNILLE TEISBAEK I…

ONE YEAR VEGAN

Happy Christmas, New Years and 2019 – all in one! After a hectic semester and festive period I haven’t focused much on writing after bashing out essay after essay at the end of uni last year. However, it’s a new year which means it has been a whole year since I became fully vegan and…

HOW TO GET BACK INTO THE SWING OF THINGS

For many people, September is about getting back into routine after a relaxing holiday abroad or after weeks of BBQ’s, day trips and drinking ice cold Pimms in the garden. But then there’s the reality of work and school life as soon as September looms around the corner. However, this is the time where many…

PLANT-BASED FOOD GUIDE: COPENHAGEN

Whilst Copenhagen (my new favourite city!) boarders Germany meaning there is a lot of meat foods and burger bars around, Copenhagen is an  open minded place and full of heathy options. You can tell by the abundance of raw food cafes and the fact that most people cycle around the city. So it was exciting…

POSTCARDS FROM COPENHAGEN

As I’ve mentioned before, Copenhagen has been a city on my list of places to travel to. So in January of this year my boyfriend and I decided to book the trip for my 20th birthday on April 14th-17th.  The more I read about the Danish city the more I knew I’d fall in love…

WHY BEING VEGAN IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK

It’s been over two months since I went vegan properly and despite not being plant-based for very long, I have really found it has been so much easier than I thought. There are countless arguments against veganism, however, it’s 2018 and cutting out animal products has never been easier. If you are curious about ‘vegan…

HOW TO ‘HYGGE’ THIS YEAR

One of the most Instagram-able books of last year, which is also in The Times Top Ten Bestsellers, is The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking, as well as the the follow-up The Little Book of Lykke. Both written by the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark. I have always had an interest…

WEEK 2 & 3 – UNI FOOD SHOP | VEGANUARY

Week 2 of Veganuary. A slightly different week to the last, I definitely  tried out a few vegan junk food options, made some student-style meals that I can replicate now I’m back at uni as well as do a pretty big food shop. I planned out the staple food, my favourite fresh fruit and veg…

WEEK ONE | VEGANUARY

Veganism has been something of interest to me for the last couple of years, I tried it once before for about six months before bringing cheese and chocolate back into my diet. However, after being vegetarian for eight years, this year is going to be when I fully cut out all animal produce and focus…
