A year ago today I embarked on my Bella Green journey and published my first ever blog post.
To mark to the occasion I’d like to take some writing space to thank those who have supported, followed and inspired me to continue. At times it has been tough. Making time to research and write whilst juggling a job, the gym, learning German and a social life (aka beer and binge watching Netflix) hasn’t always been easy. But your kind words have jeered me along.
Since starting the blog I have changed how I consume ALOT.
- I no longer buy stuff I don’t need
- Only buy cruelty free and natural beauty products
- Think about packaging and plastic ALL THE TIME
- The majority of clothes I buy are either locally made, vintage, second hand or ethically made
- And I buy organic, fairtrade and package free food where possible.
Keeping a blog reminds me to think, who made this, where has it come from, what are it’s effects, how was it made?
My five favourite posts this past year have been:
- The Beauty of Simplicity
- My Plastic Free Struggle
- Ethical Food Shop
- Who Made My Clothes?
- Summer Essentials.
They were the most interesting to research and satisfying to write.
Next year will definitely be a different one for me. Full of changes. I will be moving in with my parents for a few months and have a HUGE, exciting adventure up my sleeve. The blog may morph as time goes on, but always at the heart of it will be sustainability.
If you would like to work with me or put forward a topic for me to cover, please let me know!
I’m now about to have a ‘Fake Christmas Day’ with my family. Lots of food and Secret Santa presents await. I hope you have a great Sunday.
Love Anna x
p.s it amazingly is a WHITE CHRISTMAS!
