Happy Chinese New Year!

2018: the year of the dog.

Also the year I travel to China!

On 4th September I will be boarding a plane to Beijing with a backpack to explore Asia and beyond… here’s my planned travel route so far…

Moving forward this blog may take a different turn, but there will always be an ethical, sustainable and environmental focus.

In the lead up to going away I’ll be filling you in on my planning and what ethical things I will be taking with me. As always I’m stupidly organised and have a long list (colour co-ordinated spreadsheet) of essentials that I will need. Ranging from a travel mirror, to a cap, to a collapsable cup, to shorts, to shoes, to solid shampoo…

Then when I am on my travels I’ll keep you informed on all the cool places I visit, amazing foods I try and new people I will meet. I’ll report on what I find in each place, whether it be lots of plastic rubbish on an idyllic beach, or visiting factory workers that make garments that are bought in the UK, or the air quality in the cities.

I am stupidly excited for this adventure. It’s something I have always wanted to do, and I am extremely lucky to have a boyfriend that wants to go with me and a family that supports my decision. I’m unsure how long I’ll be gone for, and of course I will miss everyone massively.

But life is for living, you only get one of them, so make it the best it can be!

And on that note, it is Friday evening, I’m off to the pub to celebrate the weekend. Hope it’s a good one and I look forward to sharing my adventures with you all.


Bella Green is back.

Wow, September really did fly over. I cannot believe a whole month has gone by since my last post. We’re now into October, and some crazy people have even started talking about the ‘C’ word (local Co-op officially have mince pies on their shelves)!

I took a break from blogging throughout September as my diary was rather chocker.

At the start of September I visited London where I ate lots of scrummy food and supported Team Shearer in the charity football match Game 4 Grenfell.






I then walked 25 miles along Hadrian’s Wall, my final challenge this year raising money for Labour Behind the Label.Β It was great meeting new people, working as a team and well and truly blowing the cobwebs off in the Northumberland air.






Finally my long-awaited holiday to Dubrovnik arrived.







Fully rejuvenated, I’m now ready to throw myself back into blogging.

As October is Fairtrade month and hosts Anti-Slavery Day I’ll be focusing on these areas for this months posts. If you have anything you specifically would like me to cover, please let me know.

Hope you’re all well. I’m very very happy to be back.

Ciao Bellas xxx
