New Years Style Resolutions

 Looking to Shake Up 2017 Stylishly? Sometimes we need some help to get out of our style ruts and the New Year can be the perfect excuse to delve into some new style ideas or experiments. Shaking things up a little can help us learn more about who we are as people, what image we want to portray to the world (because first impressions count even if we like to imagine people aren’t that judgemental), and what relationship we have...

Resolve: Your New Beginning

A Fresh Start for Values Based Action. The end of a year usually involves celebration followed by new resolve. Whether you are into resolutions or not there is a good chance that on January first you start to think about what it is that you hope to do or achieve in the year to come. Yesterday I was fortunate enough to attend a gathering with three of my eco soul sisters (Fashion Hound– Faye De Lanty, the Eco Warrior...

Shop The Christmas Rush Without Waste

It’s that shopping time of year! It’s pretty safe to say that the majority of us will end up at a shopping complex at some point of December. Some will be gleefully skipping down the isles doing the big present shop while others will be trying hard to find a table to sit and wait at while silently protesting the Christmas Shopping experience. Whatever side of the love/hate scale you sit on, adopting just one of these waste...

A Very Mindful Christmas

Taming the holiday spirt. Let’s face it December can be tough work even for the most festive of folk. It’s the time of year where all the deadlines loom. School wraps up for the holiday season, the weather is at a bit of a peak changing point, and suddenly everyone has the urge to catch up all at the same time. If you happen to work in the service or holiday industry it’s likely that you are gearing up (or already...

Gifting Made Easy

  Christmas is upon us! I get a little funny this time of year because I truthfully see little joy in the mainstream ideals of Christmas. As someone who is spiritual (yogic and science influence) but not religious I appreciate a good celebration of (insert your religion here) faith, but the enforcement of one huge consumer orgy wrapped in a religious ideal makes me a bit sick in the stomach. However, I do believe in taking time out,...

Fashion Revolution Follow Up: 2016

The result. It’s been a long time coming but I can finally announce the results of my Fashion Revolution campaign. This year I targeted three brands; Tigerlily Swimwear, Arnhem, and Spell Designs. Tigerlily was in contact with me during last years campaign and explained that they are still working on the ethical manufacturing documentation they will provide on their website.

Dressember: Days 30-31

It’s bigger than a dress! For the month of December I will be participating in Dressember because I believe in everyday advocacy. By wearing a little black dress for 31 days  I am raising awareness and funds for the millions of abused women and girls across the globe. The little black dress I am wearing (worn in rotation with another LBD I already owned) is made by and overcomer of sex trafficking who through Elegantees has been...
