I've heard of reverse washing a few times, but if I'm honest thought it was one of those blogger fads that would pass over time. That was until I noticed that the Tresemme Beauty-Full Volume range was on offer in my local supermarket. I thought I would give it a go since I'm always trying to achieve that big bouncy blow dry look which Tresemme promises.

I've been working with One Memoir behind the scenes to help them launch their amazing new upcycled fashion brand here in Edinburgh. I'm sure I will be talking about One Memoir a lot in the coming weeks so be prepared. But today I wanted to share some background on the brand and why I decided to support them.

Last week I spoke about how hard it can be shopping for ethical fashion, this can be even tougher for those of us who love fast fashion. Making any sort of lifestyle change isn't easy, yes I do consider giving up fast fashion a lifestyle change. You're giving up your Saturday afternoon at the shops trying the find the perfect outfit for going out that night, you're giving up a lunchtime trip to the shops to cheer yourself up, you're giving up hours of online browsing in your favourite stores, you may even be giving up your favourite stores. That's a lot of change and it isn't going to be easy. There is a lot more to this than just changing where you buy your clothes.

Can you believe its nearly the end of June? The months just seem to be flying by right now. I feel like I've only just started my spring capsule wardrobe and its already time to start thinking about my summer capsule wardrobe. Traditionally your summer capsule wardrobe should begin on the 1st of July and last until the end of September. However I don't think that method works well for those of us living in the UK (Scotland in particular). I spoke about having slower more fluid transitions in my spring capsule inspiration post and I still think this is the best way to transition if the weather can be a bit temperamental (which it certainly is here in Scotland)

There has been a lot of discussion around the pressure of having the perfect life and the negative effects of social media recently. Hayley from London Beauty Queen recently wrote a very honest post on the impact of instagram culture (read the post here). I have written about the pressure to be a perfect blogger in my Thoughts on Fashion Blogging post. From some of the comments I received on that post, it's clear I'm not the only one left feeling inadequate sometimes. I wanted to add my own opinion on whether or not Instagram is to blame for these feelings.
