Having come from a background in acting and performance, Aine has since moved her attention to her passion for ethical food and fashion writing.

Originally hailing from Derry, Northern Ireland, she has lived in London, Chicago and Cornwall. The Cornish coast has her heart and she hopes to one day live near the ocean where she can indulge her love for the sea.

Aine also holds a masters in contemporary music and she likes to keep life varied and is excited about the next phase of her professional adventure.

POP (The Fashion Store), which has recently opened its doors in Olney, Buckinghamshire is one such place that sells an array of divinely stylish clothing and accessories with a conscience

Eating organically grown food may be the best decision you will ever make. As we increasingly try to lessen our tread on this fragile earth, we can make the most difference when it comes to what we choose to eat three (sometimes more) times a day. But why should we choose organic, what impact does it really have and why must it cost so much more than non-organic produce?

For most shoppers, it can be all too easy to succumb to the lure of the high street, with its astronomically low prices and seemingly good value for money. Why pay 30 pounds for a simple cotton t-shirt when you can buy several for the same money at any store on the main thoroughfare of any British town. It’s easy, convenient and best of all... cheap. Or is it?

When it comes to their environmental footprint, hotels in general, tend to have a slight (read massive) image problem. One may think sustainability is at the very bottom of their priority list – after all, paying guests expect access to all the comforts like hot water, clean sheets and food, so it is no surprise there is a colossal amount of waste within this industry. Collateral damage if you will.
