Sewing: Reusable Cotton Rounds

If you remember from this post, I said that one small step I want to take to help the environment was to sew reusable cotton rounds. I use disposable ones to remove makeup and nail polish, and that’s a lot of waste. Sewing reusable ones wasn’t that hard, either; I spent half an hour one […]

Hello World

I find it bizarre what we put up with sometimes. An example of this is: I have two bookcases. One of them was bought in the last five years, but the other I’ve owned since primary school. The one that I’ve had since primary school – and I don’t even have a justification for this […]
