  • Keen to know what a chef cooks his family on those nights there's no time to think, let alone assemble a fancy meal? Or find out what he eats on an average day, and why he reckons everyone should know a farmer or two? In the run up to his appearance at the Noosa Food and Wine festival we spoke to Matt Wilkinson – owner and chef at @popejoan and author of the 'Mr Wilkinsons' cookery books – to find out what he throws together to make a tasty meal in minutes. His answers made us instantly hungry - apologies in advance if the same thing happens to you 🍽🌽🍽🥑🍽 [📷 by Lizzie Halloran]

  • Our founder and editor-in-chief Kelley is in London at the moment, and she stopped in to ethical clothing store @thekeepboutique in Brixton Village today. Full of beautiful, sustainably stylish finds, The Keep was started five years ago by Kate Richards. Kate says of their beginnings: “Frustrated by the poor quality of most things in my wardrobe, and uninspired by high street shops, I began to seek out clothes that had a story behind them. Working as a management consultant by day, I dedicated evenings and weekends to blogging about my fashion finds.

During one such hunt I stumbled into an exhibition at Sadler’s Wells, run by the Ethical Fashion Forum, and my path was set. The first step was to quit my job; the second to write a business plan. The vision being a one-stop shop offering a curated selection of the most stylish, yet affordable, ethical fashion. Clothes to keep.” ❤️ #sustainablefashion #ethicalfashion #fairtradefashion #organicclothing #handmade #handmade #consciousclothing #consciousconsumer
