(Snap taken from last weekend's afternoon tea at The Orangery, Kensington)

Oh what a week! In the period of seven days things got very adult and grown up around here. I can't say too much just yet, but down to this Sunday round up acting like a miniature diary of sorts- I thought I'd include it (without being a total tease, naturally). I mean, it makes a total change from me solely talking about Line of Duty and Harry Styles- but with a new Haim track out (thoughts, people??) it's not all been adulting (and there's been a pretty good soundtrack to it all at least)...

This weeks reading to get your teeth in to...

The Must-Reads:
Although I sadly didn't manage to publish anything over Fashion Revolution Week this week (I'm going to be working on a little belated something so stay tuned) I really enjoyed reading Sophie's post on how to make your wardrobe more conscious as well as Tolly's mini series of posts over the week. It's a topic I feel really strongly about more people, especially bloggers, talking about- and it's amazing to see people producing genuinely useful and informative content on the matter (which definitely makes me realise I need to pull my finger out a little more). On top of that, this article by Vogue which Erica Davies shared was also really interesting. Not only was it about a brand I love, but their stance on working with influencers was truly refreshing- and without any spoilers I truly recommend giving it a read.

The YouTube Video:
Following on from Fashion Revolution chat comes this video from one of my favourite YouTubers, Maddie from La Madelynn. She did a wonderful eye-opening clothes swap as part of her 'haulternative'- discussing slow and sustainable fashion (and making it look bloody cool in the process). I also watched Marzia's video too which is equally wonderful. As always I discovered a gem on the Vogue channel- and watching Leandra rummage through her wardrobe seriously gave me some inspiration for the week. Now to work out how to be that cool...

The Website Love:
One website I discovered, and was ridiculously late to the party to was Gurls Talk. Founded and run by supermodel and babe-of-the-year, Adwoa Aboah, it tackles all sorts of issues head on. 'A safe platform where girls can openly share their experiences and feelings'- it's a truly awesome and refreshing site and there are wonderful pieces from everything such as mental health and anxiety (Adwoa worked with Heads Together over this years London Marathon) to politics, womens rights, feminism and banishing negative thinking. Just as you thought she couldn't get cooler...

The Podcast:
I can't lie, last week I suggested so.damn.many I've not even had a chance to catch up- see last weeks post here for a helluva lot of listening ideas!

  4. I saw La Madelynn's and Marzia's videos too and thought it was a really cool idea. I'd love to do something like that with my friends.
    Gurls Talk is something I should really check out more.

  6. Thank you for the ethical fashion reading recommendations!
    I follow a lot of ethically conscious bloggers—and Fashion Revolution on instagram—but more articles on this topic is definitely a plus ;)
    If you're interested, I have a series of posts for Fashion Revolution Week last week as well. It's probably not groundbreaking, but I hope it'll be inspiring in some way ˆ ˆ

    Alive as Always
