Plastic Free July is just around the corner, so let us help you prepare for it.
So a couple of days ago I was getting ready to stock up on one of my favorite masks ever, Gleamin. I love Instagram; I love to see people's creativity, I love to shop on it, I really use it to see the world outside of my current limited space. So I go to Instagram, go on Gleamin's page to purchase my next go around and Gleamin is getting slammed by the black community that it very specifically caters too. Turns out that the only black employee at the company was fired for 'being too emotional.' I looked more into the story and the reasons surrounding the culture of the company and the firing of the employee are unpleasant...Whelp. Unfollow.
There are so many ‘re’ words regarding sustainability. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to incorporate sustainability in our lives however it should be effortless, without feeling like it’s hard-work.

If you’re not an essential worker, you’ve most likely been forced to stay at home and work remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic. Chances are, at some point, you’ve been bored. You’ve stared into space or scrolled mindlessly through social media to make the lockdown more bearable.
The current Covid situation is simply tragic and unfortunately, is not going anywhere any time soon. So, like all socially responsible human (nah not really, the truth is I have to observe a compulsory company-mandated quarantine), I have been self-quarantined at home for two weeks now, and my oh my I was soooooo bored out of my mind that I have went on to do some very unexpected things, which have surprised even myself.
I recently came across a Guardian article which said that Britain has closed almost 800 libraries in a decade and I was gutted. When I was growing up, I somehow found myself recognising that knowledge is sacred (to me). I crave to learn, to improve and become aware about my surroundings.
Just this year, I transitioned from working my 9-5 office job to working for myself — woo! With this change came a serious realization: I need to update my bedroom. As the majority of my work is done via laptop in my personal space, I knew the investment and time would be worth it to make a space where I could be productive during the day and cozy at night. I have always been a budget-friendly shopper, typically purchasing only the pieces that are necessary. As a result, I was prohibiting my space from feeling cozy — simply due to dollars! Well, within a matter of weeks I realized that in order to be creative, inspired, comfortable, and productive, I have to love my space. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that I can love my space while still on a budget. Are you skeptical? Find out how I created the bedroom of my dreams!
