Merry Christmas to Me! 18 New Holiday Releases I'm Shopping For December

Though this is the season to shop for others, I can't help but pick out a few things for myself as well. As a shopping editor, my job is to hunt down the hottest items on the internet that readers should know about. Naturally, it's hard not to discover products to add to my own mental shopping cart. With the holiday season in full swing, I'm digging lots of fun and festive pieces from sites like Zara, Banana Republic, H&M, River Island, and lots more. If you've ever been curious about what shopping editors add to their wish lists, now is the time to see for yourself. I curated a roundup of the coolest must haves out there. Prepare to reach for your credit card - I already did. 'Tis the season! Related: ...

I used to get paid by fast fashion brands but now I'm an advocate for slow style

Words by Tara Stewart I used to work with fast fashion brands but now I host a podcast on sustainable fashion called Dirty Laundry. When I was a teenager in my small town in the middle of the Australian Outback, I often spent my Saturdays rummaging through the very few shops we had. The two stores I would always visit were the charity shop and my local music store to listen to the new music that had just arrived. I’d usually walk out of both stores with a vintage blazer, some jewellery and maybe a single CD depending on what I had enough money for. I would end up spending most of my money, but I didn’t care, as I knew that I would leave with something I would cherish for a long time. Something worthy of my money. For as long as I can remember (and much to my detriment), I have prioritis...

I'm Too Lazy To Dress Up This Christmas, But I Might Just Wear These 6 Outfits

It's the fashion update that I never would've predicted a month ago, but according to Lyst searches for sequin pieces have risen significantly over the last two weeks, with page views currently up 165%, alongside an 88% rise in searches for glitter and crystal-embellished shoes. Apparently, despite a global pandemic, lots of the British public are still up for getting on their glad rags for the festive season—even if that's from the comfort of their sofa.In some ways it's not that surprising, if you consider the fact that most of us have been living in loungewear for the last 7 months and celebrations have been put on pause. I don't know about you, but I'm certainly taking advantage of any excuse to feel, well, just a little bit shiny. But let's be realistic here, most of us won't be go...

Next Year I'm Going to Use More and More of These Refillable Beauty Products

How do you recycle your beauty empties? For those who have attempted to discard used mascara tubes, plastic applicators and old eye-shadow palettes, you’ll know there’s no simple answer. Most beauty packaging ends up on the rubbish tip, and back in 2018, a report by Zero Waste Week found that the beauty industry produces a shocking 142 billion pieces of packaging each year.As beauty lovers continually become more conscious about the environment, it was only a matter of time before brands started to take notice and, most importantly, improve their sustainable options. Refillable beauty products—with packaging that can be used more than once—has become one answer to the beauty industry’s waste issue. It's certainly not going to solve all problems overnight, but is a small step that you ca...

I have a puppy so this Cyber Monday, I'm investing in a steam mop

Hello new (adopted) puppy, hello steam mop. The two should really come together in a bundle when you leave the rescue centre. As, despite your best attempts and interests there will inevitably be an accident, or two, or three… So, this Cyber Monday the top item on my to shop list was a steam mop. Sites like John Lewis and  Amazon are my go-to for deals and offers on cleaning products like this as the former price match absolutely everything and the latter’s spotlight deals aren’t to be missed. Shop: John Lews steam mop deals I’ll be honest and say that prior to shopping these deals I didn’t feel particularly confident knowing the difference between different types of steam mop and the technical elements to seek out. However, I’ve fallen into a cleanin...
