How To Be More Plastic Free

Single use plastic is a huge problem for the environment and not to mention killing our sea life.  So much so that lots of companies are now trying to reduce their use of plastic such as doing away with plastic straws and charging for using plastic carrier bags.  Here are a few ways that you yourself can do your bit to live a plastic free life.

  1. Bring your own reusable water bottle/coffee cup preferably metal.  Can you imagine how much plastic waste comes from people that buy water bottles every single day?!  Just buy yourself a reusable bottle, there are so many places that sell them and either fill it up at home or when buying coffee out ask them to use your cup instead.

  2. Shop savvy.  When I'm at the supermarket I try to pick up fruit and veg with the less amount of plastic packaging.  This can prove quite difficult sometimes but a lot of shops are getting better.

  3. When you have leftovers rather than putting them on a plate with some plastic cling film, use a reusable tupperware box, metal bento box or even use tin foil which is at least recyclable.

  4. Use useable shopping bags when you go shopping.  This is one I am probably best at because it's so easy to just throw a bag in when you go shopping and not have to keep buying new ones.

  5. Stop buying ready meals.  They're not good for you anyway because of the amount of sodium most of them contain but they are the biggest culprits at wasting plastic.

  6. Use bars of soap instead of plastic bottles.  This is obviously harder because we are so used to using plastic bottles of soap, shampoo etc but if we can try to cut down on it then we are taking a step in the right direction.



How will you do your bit to go plastic free?

Should I Have Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers have been having a moment the last few years and I think a lot of us have posed the question "Should I get my lips done?".

I don't think there's a wrong or right answer here.  If you feel like you want a little extra plumpness or that you would feel more confident having bigger lips or if you really don't like your lips the way they are or even if you don't like the shape of your lips and want a bit of filler to even them out.  You do you.  



I don't have lip fillers myself (you can probably tell!) but that's not to say I have ruled it out completely.  I think like a lot of us we're scared it will go wrong or that the swelling will last for ages and everyone will be able to tell.  If I had them done I would just start with a small bit and work from there until I was happy.

I would want people to be able to notice a little because what's the point in having them done if they look no different but I wouldn't want it to be too obvious.  It's also quite an expensive procedure if you want them done correctly.  Please make sure you do your research if you are thinking of getting them and go to somewhere reputable that is licensed to carry out this procedure.

What do you think about lip fillers?
