Spring Pinspiration

It's that time again, I haven't made one of these in a while (and this one is probably going up quite late) but oh well. I don't know why I love these kinds of posts so much, but I guess it's like making a seasonal vision board of inspiration. I just like putting collections of images together that make me happy. Maybe they'll inspire/make someone else happy too.

Long weekend in Dublin | Travel

At the end of Febuary this year, Scott and I decided to take a long-weekend trip away to Dublin. We'd been talking about it for a while, then just decided to book and go. We have friends in Dublin, so we wanted to go and see them, but it was Scott's first time to Ireland so we wanted to do some sight-seeing too.


#whomademyclothes | Fashion Revolution Day

24th of April marks the anniversary of the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2013. 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured while working in a factory making clothing for western high-street retailers. It caused a huge outcry at the time, to examine the consequences of fast fashion, but three years on, lots of brands still use 'sweat shops' to manufacture clothes, and people are still working inhumane hours in unsafe conditions.

So, the 18th-24th of April is set aside as 'Fashion Revolution Week', with fashionrevolution.org spearheading a campaign to make consumers more conscious about fashion retail manufacturing, and asking to hold companies accountable for the welfare of their employees with the hashtag #whomademyclothes.

New Year's Rockclimbing Adventure

I've done rockclimbing once or twice in the past and I loved it, but there was never anywhere near by that I was able to go to for practice. I always thought it was an ideal activity for me, because I'm not much of a runner, I can't lift weights, and I've fallen off a bike more times than I can count, but I'm not scared of heights, and I've got gangly long limbs. So, when I was home visiting my parents for Christmas, I was so excited to find out that Spireroxx had opened up not too far from where we live.
