Green, Clean and Smelling Good: going green in the bathroom

I have made no allusions to the fact that I am the queen of procrastination and general idleness. But despite my lazy preoccupations, even I have to face the facts that some routines must be maintained; especially those which involved hygiene!

As such, this month I have been looking into ways I can become a little more eco-friendly in the bathroom and swapping a few essential products to be ever so slightly greener. Here are 5 changes I’ve been making so far… Continue reading Green, Clean and Smelling Good: going green in the bathroom

Understanding: Ethical & Vegan Wine

Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is approaching and it’s nearly time to kick off those shoes, enjoy some good food and have a well-deserved glass of wine.

Understanding: Biodiversity

The word Biodiversity has cropped up on my radar a few times in my life – but as a complete dummy when it comes to science, and with very little knowledge of plants (outside of food…); I must admit I’ve never given it much thought. But as today marks The United Nations International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) – aiming to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues – maybe it’s time I do some homework!

Lazy recipe: Easy Toasted nutty & seeded Granola

Not usually one for following recipes; I never really have the patience to follow something step-by-step, and usually end up free-styling and making it up. But…last week my friend told me she had made her own granola, and it actually sounded very easy to do. In fact, what I love is the fact you really don’t need to follow any strict ingredient list, and can add anything you have lying around in the cupboard. You literally just chuck in what you fancy!
