A few people have kindly messaged me on Instagram recently to ask how I’m doing with everything. To be honest, over the last few weeks, I’ve felt really guilty for having such a hard time. We have a new baby, so we were going to be home most of the time anyway! I think, or […]

Over the past two years or so, I’ve grown much more mindful about two things that I didn’t give a lot of thought to before: the ingredients in the products I use and how my clothes are made. Gratefully, I am definitely not the only one! Even in such a short time, it has become […]
