This week is Waste Less Live More week, the title being fairly self explanatory:) The week aims to raise awareness that environmental and social issues are interlinked and tackling these issues together is a far more effective solution.
I have signed up to take part in the Be Resourceful challenge. To be honest it comes with perfect timing for me. I have been seriously tempted by a £15 off if you spend £30 on Ebay Fashion, 20% off Marks & Spencers (I was thinking winter tights) and £25 of you spend £50 at Body Shop.
I am delighted to say I have resisted, I don’t need any clothes, irrespective of whether they are second hand, or any more makeup (which I wear at the most once a week!). I have this saved my wallet at least £40:).
The Be Resourceful week focusses on different ideas each day:

Today I have been working on making items for blog posts later in the week, and Fixing:)
A friend of mine borrowed this handbag from a work colleague, unfortunately the handle broke. I offered to repair it.
After an attempt at trying to create leather straps I moved onto fabric (to be kind to my sewing machine). Hopefully they are strong enough to hold.
I am going to be visiting the Waste Less Live More site daily to read the variety of interesting guest bloggers. I hope you have a good week,
