I’ve noticed my hair gradually thinning for a little while now, especially around my fringe and parting. It’s not hugely noticeable to other people, but it is to me. I don’t know if its just because I’m getting older (I’m in my 30s now!) or if its a result of years and years of hair dye and straightening. Either way, I’m pledging to take better care of my hair and have been looking for products to help.
Sustainability is a word that is thrown around a lot lately. It’s in the news, its on TV, a lot of brands are talking about being better when it comes to producing or packaging their products. It’s a subject I feel really passionate about exploring and pushing further in both my personal life and on my blog.
I know everyone is in different situations with work at the moment – I had a brief couple of months in the office when they opened again, but I’m now back to working from home. However, I did get some used out of my bags again for a little while, and this is what I was taking with me.
I am generally a very casual dresser. A tshirt and jeans is my staple outfit and most of my clothing is from the high street. However, I like to elevate my looks with high end accessories. I can throw on a blazer, a preloved handbag and a designer belt and it just takes things up a notch!
Oxfam have launched #SecondHandSeptember – a campaign to try and discourage people from buying new clothing and accessories for the entire 30 days of the month. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the environmental impact of fast fashion and highlight the importance of limiting the amount of clothes we send to landfill.
