lotta blobs

"Hello! I’m Shantelle, the creator of Lotta Blobs.

I’m a Graphic Designer by day and a blob sculptor by night! Lotta Blobs was created in the early months of the pandemic as a way to occupy my mind and to feed my love of creativity. My blobs are inspired by my keen interest in unusual homeware and by my fascination with the use of colour as a mood-changer.

I operate everything from my home in London and sculpt each blob by hand, making each one unique. My goal is to add a touch of colour and fun to everyone’s reflection, one blob at a time!

INTERESTING books

I read some fun books recently. Some are on fashion, while others are fun stories or or simple books!


The Conscious Closet: The Revolutionary Guide to Looking Good While Doing Good

by Elizabeth L. Cline

This book is very interesting and has enlightened me in fashion, but not just fashion, "looking good while doing good" A lot of our planets problems can also be caused by fashion, which is one of the biggest industries in the world. Cline really illustrates the main points of this book, how fashion has an impact over our world. It really makes you think twice when you talk about clothes.

The Witches

Novel by Roald Dahl

Many people have dubbed this book as a classic, but I had never really read it. Some say that Roald Dahl is a magnificent author, and I must simply agree with them. The story the witches is about a boy whose Grandmama tells him about witches and how they are disguised in the world. After an encounter with a witch, the boy wishes to find the Grand High Witch and goes to find her.


TV series i'm watching

During summer I like to watch a series or two , read on to find out more about these new TV shows!

Loki: the series (on disney +)

I'm watching Loki right now, so no spoilers!!! >:-)

MAnifest (on netflix)

Manifest is about an airplane flight that "mysteriously disappeared" for 5 1/2 years. Nobody knows what happened and there are many ludicrous theories, but none of them are right. What happened to the passengers on the flight? Where were they? That's what Ben and his sister, Michaela want to find out. When the passenger start getting visions that's when trouble starts to happen! Bad people are after them and drama is evident. Watch this series for sci-fi / thriller vibes!



Rated TV-14

Playlists

I made some new playlists!! (once again) :-)

NEW ARtists (music artists)

Check out these new summer reads for summer!

Posted

By John David Anderson

In middle school, words aren’t just words. They can be weapons. They can be gifts. The right words can win you friends or make you enemies. They can come back to haunt you. Sometimes they can change things forever.

When cell phones are banned at Branton Middle School, Frost and his friends Deedee, Wolf, and Bench come up with a new way to communicate: leaving sticky notes for each other all around the school. It catches on, and soon all the kids in school are leaving notes—though for every kind and friendly one, there is a cutting and cruel one as well.

Ways To save the planet

Lately, people have finally realized that global warming is a rising problem. Most people you know have probably told you about how to recycle and ditch plastic straws. Those examples are okay, but ways that you really can lower the amount of carbon emissions and reduce your carbon footprint is by reducing your amount of waste and reusing materials.

EasY Sustainable Swaps

~Upgrade your grocery bags to reusable ones

Next someone asks paper or plastic, try reusable!

~Use a sustainable shampoo

Unfortunately, shampoos have done lasting damage to our water supply. When you rinse your hair the shampoo goes down the drain, leaving them to be sent down into the water supply, polluting a variety of environments including wastewater, surface water, sediment, groundwater, and drinking water. Then there are the plastic bottles used to hold your shampoo. Many of them are either only partially recyclable or cannot be recycled, so they end up in our oceans and landfills.


~Start cooking plant-based foods

Plant based foods are not only good for the environment, but good for you! It is proven from the research from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health that you can decrease your risk of type 2 diabetes. A study published in Frontiers in Nutrition investigated the diets of 34,000 people and concluded that eating regimes rich in fruits and vegetables were better for the planet than those high in animal products. If you can't stop eating meat at least try to cut back the amount you consume regularly, it could help our planet.

Anyways, That's it for this week, stay tuned for more!!
