Valentine's Day is a beautiful time to show those that you love just how much they mean to you, but it's  not exactly an "earth friendly holiday".  I've never really understood why it becomes (much like Christmas can), all about gifts, fast fashion, generic chocolates...

Sometimes I feel like I write fluffy things, thinking I'll soften the message in a way that is digestible for as many people as possible. But more and more, I feel this niggling to express a little deeper, whether that resonates with a large amount of people or not. Th...

Sometimes it doesn't even feel real that we're having a baby. Sometimes it feels like my body is playing tricks on me. And then sometimes, it hits me so hard, like a tonne of beautiful miracle bricks and I still can't quite believe it.

Every year, billions of dollars are spent in giving gifts, which also means tonnes and tonnes of waste, from wrapping to packaging and even to unwanted presents.

While giving gifts is a beautiful way to show someone you care, I wanted to think about ways that...

​It's shopping season, and that usually means lots of money spent, and an abundance of consumption - but it doesn't have to be that way. This year, I'll be filling my loved ones' stockings with sustainable items I know they'll love, and will get great use out of.
