I would say that for many years, I've been the Pumpkin Spiced Latte queen. I was exposed to coffee a lot earlier than most, and adored the taste from day one... so, of course I one day tried this magical autumnal drink and fell in love. At my local Starbucks from about the age of… Continue reading Cosy cup: Hello Pumpkin Spice (Vegan)
In a world where all looks scare her, eyes meet. There's a flash of technicolour, standing out, in a world usually seen in black and white vision. Illuminated joy seeps through the waves of life; the salt usually blurs even the brightest of stars and crashes on the sandbanks too fast to even gasp for… Continue reading Technicolour (Poetic prose by Lauren Curr)
This post is a part of Blogtober 2018. This time last week I was travelling back from Manchester after having spent the past two days there working an event. Though I did spend most of this year working in the event's shop and having a primary role facilitating in workshops, I did have a little… Continue reading Lush Creative Showcase 2018 (Manchester)
For 3 years straight I've done Blogmas, and I loved being able to post every day, but... if you know me, you'll know my season is autumn over winter, any day. So, this year, I'm taking Blogmas on a more suited whirl and choosing to partake in Blogtober, instead! I've also been fairly quiet so… Continue reading Blogtober First: A re-introduction to Stories Can Make Us Fly!
On Tuesday 14th August Lush (the fresh, handmade cosmetics brand) launched campaign #CarryTheCup in their soho studio. This campaign is running for 4 weeks from this date, so is running until mid September. Beyond cosmetics, there are habits we can break and simple changes we can make to reduce or remove single use plastics from… Continue reading #CarryTheCup: Lush’s ethics beyond cosmetics.
Although I don't guarantee a solstice/equinox post over here, I do bring my own spirituality into things I write frequently whether within a whole themed post or small aspect merely influenced by the spirituality in daily life. I am definitely a spiritual person, though I don't follow a religion, and this holds a huge part… Continue reading Moving forward with the Summer Solstice
It's definitely fair to say that if there's one thing I get excited about, it's finding new vegan food. Accidental finds or large retailers purposely putting themselves onto the vegan market, I'm sure to do two things; want to try it; want to tell other people about it. I visit Pret A Manger, an ethical… Continue reading Vegan treats on the High Street: Pret A Manger launches new cookie
It's now been ten whole years since my Disney obsessed self got over excited about a new TV movie by the channel, but little did I know that soon, I'd obsess over the film, leading to character obsession, leading to a long time love of one person in particular; Demi Lovato. Following my introduction to… Continue reading Waitin’ For You
By now, you may have guessed from all my other social media platforms that I am totally obsessed with RuPaul's Drag Race. I owe a lot to the show, truly. It was my good pal Carter who got me into it, slowly to begin with and later on a much more obsessive scale. It is… Continue reading “It’s Just Crazy To Not Even Be Your Authentic Self, Even In Your Own Home” (PRIDE MONTH, 2018)
So. When having a sort through my blog to make it more self-guidable (I've had my good old categories menu for a wee while now, but managed to de-grandma-ify myself for a moment and pull up my old pages as well, like the easily guided 'contents' tab...), I noticed something: I talk a lot about… Continue reading Who’s behind the screen?
