Bralettes have always been something of a dream for me. Pretty bras, bras you can walk into any shop find your size instantly and have a wide range of styling options are dreams. If you’re like me, you need an underwire and every bit of support you can get.
Up until a few years ago, I couldn’t get my band size of UK28F. I was lucky to find online a UK30 with limited options in design. I think it was Freya that started band 28’s followed by Panache however again, limited designs, cup types, all with fugly wide straps. I’m not petite height, however I’m a small size. I don’t want wide ugly straps or lace showing through tops! I don’t want either nipples showing through tops. Thankfully Panache started to make t-shirt bras, for DD+ with narrower straps. No nipples showing, no lace showing, no nipple pain in winter when the cold starts. I could also go back to wearing cami/strappy tops, knowing everything’s held in place.

As Summer starts to whisper it’s see ya laters, its light transitioning from bright light to a ever so slightly softer fall light, I share my Summer Essentials. I’m not letting my favourite season go just yet.
Some of my summer essentials are summer tried and tested or all year round favs. Others are ones I’ve just discovered or started using this year, thinking why didn’t I do this sooner?!
Light Weight Shorts and Tops
For years I’ve been denim shorts girl. This summer I ventured into lightweight fabric shorts and rompers. Namely culottes or high waisted shorts. I can play with them more. I started wearing them on hot days really noticing the difference they made cycling. Continue reading “2018 Summer Essentials”
As some of you may know I’m on a recycle less, use less plastic journey. I’m also more aware of where I clothes shop from. Many of you also know I’m vegan for the past 5 years having been vegetarian for 14-13 years previously. I think that once you start on one of these journeys they all merge at some point down the same road or different lanes in the same motorway.
My usual hot weather summer style. Hiking hence rucksack and cap (okay that’s usual as I cycle everywhere). I’m no fashion blogger but a post about fashion requires a clothes photo right?
Shopping for ethical clothes is hard on a budget. I shop on the high street while keeping in mind the fibres the clothes are made from, the environmental impact, where they were made as to the wage and conditions they were made in. I’ve had to meet half way focusing on fibres in some shops. Continue reading “Ethical Wardrobe on a Budget Dilemma”
I hope you’re having a great weekend! Mine’s been quiet which is want I wanted. Sometimes after a week of rushing around I just want to hang out with the cats, train at home, run outside and get out in the afternoons to my sanctuary the zoo. AKA a normal weekend!
Anyways, after another little haitus, Weekend Friday Favourites is back! Things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently. Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
I’ve been wanting to do a YouTube favourites post for a while but haven’t been able to find a way of conveying it. I think this is because it’s mostly ‘influnencers’ and because of this it comes across full of consumerism. Occasionally they might sway me into buying something but I feel mainly as their lifestyles are completely out my budget, that I’m vegan (yep, vegans have to tell everyone in the 1st 30 seconds they’re one. Insert roll eye emoji), am trying to reduce plastic and recycling and trying to having less stuff in general keeps me in check.

You’d think there would be a lot of animal channels seeing as how much I love animals. There are a few though I’ve noticed while I follow many of the following YouTubers on Instagram, more animal accounts pop up on my IG feed than my YouTube feed. This I’m happy about otherwise I’d be completely bombarded with look at me in my new shoes, look at my new bag! The animal recuses, animal and nature photos on IG keep in me check. I’m happy to keep Continue reading “YouTube Players”
