An Autumn Fruit Crumble & Seasonal Recollections

Seasonal Recollections & An Autumn Fruit Crumble with Sarah Hemsley from A Slow Gathering on Local Milk Blog with Beth Kirby

Hello there! My name is Sarah, and I live in Surrey, England, with my family. I’m a home cook and baker guided by seasonal eating. I find inspiration in my modest, edible garden and foraging in nearby woodland. I share my food and nature adventures on my blog, A Slow Gathering.

I would like to share with you my favourite Autumn fruit crumble and the humble ways in which it has been a cornerstone of childhood Sunday dinners. This recipe is a consistent favourite in my own baking repertoire.

Creating A Minimal & Sustainable Travel Wardrobe with Kristine Claghorn on Local Milk Blog with Beth Kirby.

Top: Fair Season | Scarf: Thrifted

Hello! I am Kristine Claghorn. As the owner of a vintage shop, I’m often reflecting on the relationship between objects and their impact on our environment. The more I research, the more opportunities I find to introduce small, thoughtful changes into my daily routine that focus on sustainability. So when I recently started planning a trip from Los Angeles to New Mexico, I couldn’t help but keep this at the forefront of my mind.


My 10-Step Clean Skincare Routine for Glowing Skin

my 10 step clean korean skincare routine for glowing skin by beth kirby local milk

My skincare ritual, a clean version of the 10-step Korean skincare routine, is a fundamental part of my self-care practice. A clean skincare routine transformed my skin and made make-up largely unnecessary. I used to be a full coverage foundation girl, and now I wear nothing at all or a light SPF BB cream at most. But my skincare routine is more than that to me. It’s not just a means to glowing skin. It’s an everyday luxury, a moment I can thank and honor this body that has served me so well. A body that has birthed, created, loved, lost, survived, and thrived. It is a way of saying daily “I am worthy. I am grateful.” 

Read on to see how my skin looks these days and learn what the 10-step Korean skincare routine is, my exact morning and evening routine, and my favorite clean skincare products!
