The Plastic Bag Debate

As you may already know, a levy has been introduced in effort to reduce the amount of plastic bags in use in supermarkets and retailers - and it's safe to say the news has the public divided. Frankly I think it's ridiculous that it has taken this long for the government to implement this ruling. We are the last country of the UK to start charging 5p for the use of a single carrier bag - of which the proceeds do not go to the government but instead retailers are opting to donate the extra pennies to worth while causes; H&M to UNICEF and Tesco to environmental improvement projects. 

To coincide with the plastic bag charge, Marks and Sparks have collaborated with UNICEF and the legend that is Barbara Hulanicki to release limited edition tote bags made from recycled linen that are also made in Britain! The bags are now available in stores and online and £1 raised from each bag will be going to UNICEF to help children in danger all across the world. 

I'm so happy to be able to add this special tote to my ever growing collection of shopper bags - its fabulous design and origin is proof that you can do something good and still look good doing it!

As always, I'd love to know your opinion on the debate - so please comment below, tweet me @dimplesdiaries or snapchat me @hannah-dimples your thoughts!

Thanks for reading folks!

VIDEO: Simple Parisian Inspired Makeup Tutorial

I think when it comes to beauty and makeup, French women do it best. And as it's Paris fashion week I thought I'd dedicate a tutorial on a french-inspired makeup look I wear on a regular basis. It's packed with base products that will make your skin glow, an iconic cat eye liner and a bombshell red lippy to die for!

Hope you enjoy!

Sustainable Autumn Wishlist

Summer is definitely drawing to a close. I've began to dig out my polo neck jumpers, the knitting needles are out and my evening weekend tipple of gin has been replaced with a full bodied Cabernet.  
So I thought I would put together a little visual list of some products I've been coveting recently that will be perfect staples to my autumn wardrobe. I love reading wishlists like this! So if you've also made one recently, link me to it down below!

Till next time!
