• I travelled for 4 months with only 8 kilos. This is what it looked like. I’ve been away since late May; about four-and-a-half months. I’ve been hiking and working and writing between LA, New York, London, Scotland, Cornwall, Crete, Paris, Slovenia and Slovakia. For the bulk of this I’ve carried a small backpack that weighed in on various flights at 8kg (I did also have a case of work materials more
  • The best toxin-free deodorant: 15% off for you kids! It’s strange times we live in. Oooh, yeah. I was asked a while back on social media what deodorant I use. Was it toxin-free and, importantly, did it actually work? I shared that I use Axilla Deodorant Paste by Black Chicken Remedies and, well, what do you know, this simple act broke the Internet. Chey Birch, more
  • Here’s the beauty products I pack when I travel… This year I’ve travelled a lot. And, in fact, for the past three years I’ve lived mostly in transit. And so my “beauty regime” in general is a simple and mobile affair. A big bunch of you ask me via the socials to share what such a regime looks like and today I’m obliging. Previously more
  • A listicle of toxin-free beauty goodness Thank you for all the extra tips you’ve all shared following my toxin-free cosmetics and beauty oils posts. I’ve popped a stack of them into one post for easy reference. You’re welcome. Tips you’ve shared for blending and using oils I make my own body butters with Coconut + Vitamin E + Shea + Jojoba oil, add the essential more
  • An open letter to my friends: Your perfume is killing me! Dearest Loved Ones, Your perfume is killing me. I mean it almost literally. It’s also affecting our friendship. I can’t hug you, and so you might have noticed my stepping back when we meet up. I can’t risk dining with you in a confined space and so you might have noticed I’ve been suggesting we more
  • The oils I use: a personal listicle I shared last week why I use oils for the bulk of my beauty regime. As promised, here’s a bunch of products I’ve used or currently use. I mix it up. Always trying things out… Please be aware, I’ve not been paid to run this list. By anyone. The recommendations are genuine. In the past few days a few more
  • Why I use beauty oils instead of cosmetics Last week I shared my personal toxin-free cosmetics listicle. In the past I’ve also covered off safe sunscreens, toxin-free nail polish and safe fake tan. An update from my ablutions front: Slowly, slowly I’ve been reducing what I use to a very small kit. And it pretty much comes down to…oil. Even my mascara. And cleanser. I follow Ayurvedic more
  • The best toxin-free cosmetics – my personal listicle Yesterday, I shared how to choose the best toxin-free cosmetics. As promised, here’s my own safe beauty shopping list. It’s not a definitive list. And I recognise that nothing is ever fully toxin-free. As ever, it’s about doing what you can. As ever, it’s mostly about doing with less. Less is more. Less is more. more
  • How to choose the best toxin-free cosmetics I’ve done several toxin-free cosmetics lists over the years, each with several updates…resulting in a bit of a jumble. So I’ve pulled them apart and rejigged them all with updated information. And before I go on… I really want to emphasise that making the switch to safer and cleaner shouldn’t be about buying more stuff. It’s more
  • The Sarah Wilson mindful xmas gift guide. ‘Cos you asked for it. My family doesn’t do Christmas gifts. Each year we pitch in for a crappy, wood-veneered, chenille-bedspreaded holiday house down the coast. We wrestle, eat, attempt to play board games (none of us are good at sitting very still), go for bike rides and try not to step on each other’s toes (especially those of the more
