I’m a little bit late this month, because life tends to get in the way of blogging; however, I wrote this a little while back! These posts are timed a little weird as they tend to work mid month – mid month, rather than from the beginning to end of a month. That means this post should be more accurately titled ‘Loving this month: Late August – Mid September’ but that’s just not so snappy, right?
This month I’ve been lucky enough to get my mitts on three new natural lipsticks. I’m a huuuuge lipstick fan – it’s hands down my favourite type of cosmetic, and I’m sure I’ve banged on about it plenty of times before. I love how a slightly different colour can change your entire face, instantly making you look more perky and alive. I’m also, at the grand old age of 22, finally getting on board with red liptick. I’d previously shied away, thinking it made me look too pale, or too dressed up, or that it had a distinctly un-Aimee air about it. But no more!
Remember how outraged everyone was when they finally cottoned on to the fact that those cardboard Costa and Starbucks cups weren’t recyclable? Yeah, me too. Even though somewhere in the back of my mind I’d like to think I always knew those little cardboard vessels weren’t as good as they’re made to look, I’d like to thank Hugh Fearnley -Whittingstall for bringing it firmly to my attention.
As I try and breathe a bit of new life in to Tomorrow Living, I want to introduce a few features which will crop up on a monthly basis. I know a lot of bloggers do a similar post to this, but I’m a nosy old thing and they’re some of my favourite posts to read. I also like to chat a lot about things which I think are fab so these sorts of posts may stop me from winding up my friends and family who don’t want to hear about what’s just happened in the book I’m currently reading for the 85th time. So, without further ado, here’s what I’ve been enjoying this month.
Regardless of what year you do it in, finishing university is a bit of an odd experience. This year, however, felt like a particularly weird one. Not that I’ve had the pleasure of graduating before, but the combination of Brexit, a new PM, a terrifying wave of violence across Europe and the Middle East, and the general feeling of despondency which permeated London during much of June and July made finishing University quite daunting. University was a pleasant bubble, and the real world wasted no time in popping it.
I’m pretty sure if you take a look at my last post, it says something along the lines of ‘I’m back guys, and ready to do more blogging than ever!’. But fast forward two months and it’s pretty clear that’s not exactly what happened. I’m not sure quite what I expected to happen once I finished uni, but things got a little hectic. Since I last blogged I’ve moved home permanently, spent a good few weeks in the ‘omg-I’ve-finished-uni-but-I-don’t-have-a-job-why-will-no-one-employ-me’ stage, subsequently gone and secured a pretty nifty internship which I am loving, graduated, and spent one mega chill weekend soaking up everything that’s good about life at Barn on the Farm festival in Gloucester. It’s been a busy few weeks, but its been good.
Well hello! It has been a long time since I last blogged – nearly two months in fact! I’m pleased to say I’m back now, and I can’t wait to get into the swing of things and to make Tomorrow Living bigger and better than ever.
Hello and welcome to the third installment of the ethical fashion profile series! It’s an absolute joy to put these kinds of posts together and to interact with some incredible bloggers from across the world – so, without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to Anna of Made Right (Here)!
This month’s favourites are a tad later than usual but I do hope you’ll forgive me! Blame university. March was the last month of my subscription to a Love Lula box, so my Favourites series might have less products in it after this month! Once I graduate and get a full time job I’d love to sign up to another green beauty box – if you have any suggestions, let me know!
Hello and welcome back to my Ethical Fashion Profile Series! Today, I’m super excited to have Ellie and Beth from Dress Well, Do Good getting involved and answering a few questions. Dress Well, Do Good is one of my favourite ethical fashion blogs – I absolutely love that it’s written by a pair of friends, and as you’ll be able to see from the responses below, the commitment, compassion and creativity which goes in to the blog is awesome. So without further ado, lets get going!
