    Journey to eco-friendly periods | The Disposables

    Welcome to the final instalment of my Journey to eco-friendly periods blog series, where I’ve been talking about the sustainable changes I’ve made to the way I manage my period. See the introduction to my journey, the first chapter about the cup, and the second about the pants. Even though the biggest changes I’ve made so far to my period routine have been switching to a cup and period knickers, I need to mention my switch to organic cotton disposables as they’re equally as sustainable. They’ve been the easiest change as, like most people, I was using disposable products like sanitary towels and tampons already. Before I started researching eco-friendly…

    February Favourites

    February was a funny old month. I struggled with restlessness towards the end and I have no idea why. I’m working on getting myself out of this restless rut though. If doing these lists has taught me anything, it’s that if I ever feel down during a month I know I will feel better soon. Looking back on what I loved last February, I can’t believe time has gone so quick. This is what I love this month: Camila Cabello’s album I stumbled upon Camila Cabello’s album because I like her song My Oh My that’s always on the radio. After giving her album a listen I discovered it’s full…

Then, because technology is most likely always listening, I started seeing them everywhere. In books I was reading, Instagram ads, and I heard people talking about them.

    Oscars 2020: predictions and wishes

    Of the 53 films nominated at the 92nd Academy Awards, I’ve seen 31 which is 59% and, I think, my highest pre-ceremony viewed percentage. For the top 6 categories (Film, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Original Screenplay, Adapted Screenplay), I’ve seen 95% as I’ve missed one of the 17  (Cynthia Erivo’s performance in Harriet). It’s mostly the documentaries and live-action shorts I’ve missed, but not through avoidance. The majority of the films I watched last year anyway, so imagine how much more keen I’d be at hitting 100% seen if the Oscars were more exciting and diverse! I did go see Ad Astra specifically because everyone said Brad…
