How was your February? For us this month has mostly involved house hunting and the paperwork involved in selling our house, and decluttering all the junk from our house that we don’t want to move. All the fun stuff I’m sure you’ll agree! Four big bags to the charity shop, a load of items piled up destined for eBay, and several items listed on Gumtree later – our current place feels a lot lighter! There’s nothing like an impending move to really be ruthless with the clutter! Don’t worry, my lovely vintage Russian dolls (an old eBay find and bargain) are coming with me!
I had initially thought the blog had been quite quiet this month, but then I looked back at all of this month’s posts and it’s actually been quite busy! Here’s what you might have missed:
How we saved a heap of money (£240 in just a week!) with a wonder material.
Bethan John of Decorator’s Notebook shared her insights into running an ethical business. I found this really fascinating!
A beautiful secondhand furnished home in Cornwall. As well as house envy I have some serious garden envy!
Showing The Love for the planet.
Some advice on starting a blog.
15 things you’ve always wanted to ask a vegetarian.
Thrift shop manager Leah Wise shared her ethical style.
Finally, some unexpected uses for soap!
Other things this month:
I was seriously flattered this month when People Tree asked me to model for their Eco Edit alongside some fantastic bloggers.
I also took part in Style Stories talking about my love of ethical and secondhand clothing. You can submit your own Style Story to the website too!
Good things I’ve read:
I’ve found some good things on the internet this month
The Seasoned Student is a new favourite blog. It’s been a long time since I was a student but eating well on a budget is still something that’s relevant to me now so it’s been well and truly bookmarked!
Sticking on the same topic of eating well on the cheap, another blog I’ve been drawn to is Grubby Knees, Clean Plate. The author, Sam, has set herself a challenge of feeding her family of five for £80 a week. She aims to do it by supporting local businesses rather than supermarkets, and I’m looking forward to reading along!
Some delicious winter vegan recipes (I am clearly all about the food this month!).
Make a self-watering plant pot from a beer bottle!
Some posts from the archives you might have missed:
Should you buy wine with a cork or screw top?
Any fun plans for March? I am going to be in a sea of boxes so do let me live vicariously through you!!
