I’m Lauren – a mother of three and a lover of all things caffeinated. I believe every person is capable of shaping the world they live in, if they choose to try. I know what I don’t like about the world and am trying to change it.


I help busy parents lead more eco-friendly lives so they can care for our planet while keeping up with the pace of modern life. Because I get it, it’s hard. Raising human beings is hard enough without having to spin ALL of the plates. That said, our planet needs us. If you’re here reading this, I probably don’t have to get all preachy with you, but here are some sobering facts:



We need to do something.

It’s down to us to change what we can about our own habits, and that’s where I come in. This blog is my mission to do my bit and help other people do their bit too. And it’s working! My tiny little corner of the web is making a difference already. What an amazing 1st year I’ve had! 

I get it though, you want to know a bit more about me, right? I mean, that’s probably why you clicked on this page to begin with! Well sit back, and get ready to go!

Loves: food; relaxing; family; Tesco yeast extract; summer; booze; video games and coffee.

Dislikes: most vegan cheese; cheeseless pizza; feet; disrespectful people; pressure.

Can usually be found: taking something else on and seeking cuddles.

Who I want to be when I grow up: Lady Olenna Tyrell.

Hopes and dreams: a completely vegan diet (still struggling with cheese and wine); being waste free; managing to turn her children into self-sufficient, respectful and happy adults.

Fears: failure; heights (to a certain degree).

I am: somewhere between a rock star, a nerd and a hippy. Literally at that weird point on the Venn diagram where those three things meet.

Is blogging because: she wants to change the world. So nothing small, then!



  1. Good to read this and I like how you really narrow down your key niches. You should collect some quotes from people like me who think you are feisty, intelligent and amazing perhaps to add to this. So pleased blogging brought you my way!
