My name is Beth, I’m 25, and I was born and raised in Kent. I’m your average twenty-something—muddling through, trying to make the most of things—who believes we can all do something to live a more ethical, sustainable life. Everyone has to start somewhere, and that’s where this blog comes in.
Toasty is for those who want to live a more ethical life, but don’t know where to start. Who want to take it one step at a time. Who want to do what they can—but aren’t sure what that is yet.
And it’s also for those who already have an interest in topics like cruelty-free beauty, vegan and vegetarian food, and being low waste. As I’ve learned more, I’ve found that they all seem to connect, which makes sense, since they all involve having compassion for animals, other people and the planet (to varying degrees). I’m still figuring it all out and I’ll be sharing my experiences as I go.
I’m not a fan of the all or nothing approach; I believe in doing what you can, and I believe doing something is better than doing nothing. So no matter what stage you’re at, you’ll always be welcome here.
Toasty has been my friends’ nickname for me since we were at school and it’s just stuck.
After completing a creative writing degree in South Wales and spending some time in Dubai, I’m back in South East England making a living as a content writer.
I’m an introvert who loves non-fiction books, naps, travel, raspberry gin, yoga, cooking and eating. I’ve always been a dog person, but I’ve accidentally become the property of a cat, after one of the neighborhood felines chose us as her owners. (She brings us headless mice, which is a sign of true love.) I’m a hopeless romantic who’s hopeless with men, and chances are I’ll have no idea what music is popular at the moment because I’m too busy listening to musicals.
Want to get in touch? Feel free to email me (email@example.com) and I’ll do my best to reply as soon as I can. Please note that I rarely accept products to review, as I’m trying to reduce the amount of things I own and the amount of waste I produce. Samples will only be considered if they haven’t been tested on animals and the brand in question does not carry out animal testing (either by themselves or via a third party). I do not publish guest posts.

Lover of books, dogs, yoga, travelling, and gin.
I write about ethical & eco-friendly living, minimalism, and mental health, as I muddle through one step at a time. Enjoy!
