It’s true what one of my favourite singers said… the times they are a changin’. Quite a lot has been going on lately so I thought it would be best to share a little blog post, just like back in the day…
I opened a shop
Yup, Chris and I opened an online shop! It’s called Persephone Beauty and it’s a space all about natural skincare. Very exciting, and we’ve put in so many hours before we even launched to get it to the stage we were happy with. Owning a shop is fun!
We’re moving house
Eeek, we’re moving out of London! I shared a few snippets on Instagram so far, but I am adding a lifestyle category onto the blog so I will update once a month or so with updates on things like… decorating, baby bits and essentially anything that isn’t pure beauty. I don’t want to stray too far from beauty because that’s my whole passion and what my blog is about, but I think adding a little mix of things as my life progresses only seems to make sense and hopefully you’ll agree! If there’s anything you want to see in particular (e.g. room makeovers, nursery furniture etc) then just let me know. Yes, moving house though. Sad to be leaving London (although we’re only half an hour outside really), but excited at the prospect of having more room and a garden.
I’m getting more into minimalism
I say this, but I think I might be a maximalist at heart. I’m trying to cut down on clutter and buying more things really, so ‘getting into minimalism’ seems apt to me. I’m not about to live in a cube and sleep without a mattress, but I’m trying to make more conscious decisions. I’m doing a June 30×30, where I have edited down my clothes to be 30 items for the month of June – including bags, shoes, top, dresses, skirts etc. It’s a small step for some, I’m sure, but it feels very nice and organised for me. I just don’t want to have beauty products and clothes that ultimately will end up sitting in a landmine, so my motivations are mostly environmentally friendly. Looking into things like shopping for clothes in the future second hand and removing meat from my diet, too. I’m not preaching or claiming to be good at this, but just trying to make small movements in the right direction.
