About A Considered Life

Hello, I'm Sophie

I'm a writer, jeweller, and plant collector based in Birmingham, UK. I've been writing about simple living and sustainability for almost ten years; documenting my life as a creative freelancer exploring eco-habits and conscious living. I was born on the Kent coast in a tiny village but have lived in the West Midlands for several years now. While I live in Birmingham and love the city life, I travel around for work and to explore quieter places to visit with my partner.

I run a jewellery brand called Oh My Clumsy Heart. I started the business in 2012, after the frustrating realisation that high quality jewellery that is affordable, made to last, and eco-conscious was nearly impossible to find. This was my springboard into sustainable style leading me to quit fast fashion, learn about environmental issues, and become a freelance writer and full-time jeweller.



About A Considered Life

This is a space to inspire and encourage you to embrace life in a way that is more purposeful, sustainable, and compassionate—however that looks for you. Whether that's through easy-to-adopt eco-friendly habits and switching to a cruelty-free beauty routine. Perhaps you want to learn how to create a capsule wardrobe by thrifting. Or maybe you want to simplify your life or slow down your travel plans. I try to write in a way that is inclusive and realistic in the hope that what I share might inspire you to make changes that are sustainable for both you and the planet, no matter what your life looks like.

Writing articles for free on a regular basis is time-consuming and costly. In order to keep this website going, I am very occasionally paid by brands to write for them.
