Fast fashion; tips to make more sustainable fashion choices

sustainable fashion - ByMeryl

Fast fashion has been a hot topic recently. The rate at which we go through clothes seems to be taking a toll on the environment. Now I am not claiming to be an expert on environmental problems nor do I claim to live my life as green as possible and yes I love fashion and buying new clothes. I do however have been trying to make more sustainable fashion choices on my shopping sprees. With these three simple tips I try to make a difference and so can you! View Post

And then you have Celiac disease

Celiac disease - ByMeryl

By the title you can probably already guess that this post is going to be on Celiac disease, which I was diagnosed with 3 months ago. I have been wanting to write about it for a while but I found it hard to find the right tone, not to down, not to upbeat (because then I would be pretending I am already okay with it), informative and still personal. I decided not to pressure myself into writing a proper post but just to focus on my story and advice, so be warned for a messy post.

An interior update with plants

An interior update with plants - ByMeryl

-A little disclaimer this post was written before my move, an update on the move and my life will follow soon.-

If you told me two years ago that my room would be filled with plants, I wouldn’t have believed you. I always assumed that I could not keep them alive and that they would be too much work. I have to admit that I still struggle with the keeping them alive part (my boyfriend wants to buy me the book “how not to kill your plants”) but I do love the fresh feel they bring to a room. So in this post I am sharing my new additions and favorite small houseplants.  View Post

Florals for Spring? (my spring fashion wishlist)

Spring wishlist - ByMeryl

There is no season that excites me as much on the clothing front as spring. Don’t get me wrong I love a comfy sweater, but as soon as February rolls around, I am so done with the cold that I can’t wait for spring. I did a quick browse in the shops and made a spring wishlist of all the items I will need in my closet. Will this finally be the season I start my capsule wardrobe? We’ll see. View Post
