Weekend Friday Favourites

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”

YouTube Players

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.images

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”

What’s Happening To Me?!

I’m not sure what’s happened. A leopard never changes its spots, right?

I always thought by not dying my hair I got out of hair treatments and expensive trips to the hairdressers. I mean no damaging bleach or other chemicals got me a free ticket to good hair. I found myself sitting in the hairdresser’s chair this week laughing at my self wondering what’s happened to me. Back in my 20’s you’d never have found me in trainers, duvet/puffer coats, wearing less make up than I wear now, using cotton toe as a handbag, having higher maintenance hair or even long healthy looking hair.

Now I wear trainers. This is thanks to being told after nearly tearing my Achilles I can’t wear heels or plimsoles anymore not that I was wearing heels back then. I wore slip on or lace up plimsoles. Only low heels or trainers were allowed as they were kinder to feet. Trainers were in the rehab stage Continue reading “What’s Happening To Me?!”

Altering A Wide Bulky Scarf

I’m sharing a great trick, hack whatever you prefer on how to make a favourite scarf less bulky if it allows. It’s pretty straight forward, if it’s a scarf that has frayed edges…just trim it down!

I’ve always found scarves either too bulky or too thin they don’t have the right hang. Most scarves leave me looking like I’m wearing a neck brace or Continue reading “Altering A Wide Bulky Scarf”

Recycle Less Update #4

Earlier this year after watching zero waste videos on YouTube I decided to start reducing my ‘waste’ by recycling less. Notably my plastic waste, having less items in general and start shopping more consciously. I know I’ll never be 100% zero waste and after making good strides for a few months, I’ve kinda hit a stand still. And it’s a little disheartening. I was doing so well!

Plastic seems unavoidable no matter how much I try to avoid it. Namely packaging. Food, cosmetics, internet shopping, even razor blades for my safety razor that are meant to reduce the plastic, the cats medicine comes packed in plastic. At times it’s money based. Do I order online cheaper Continue reading “Recycle Less Update #4”
