Why Earth Is the Best Accessory We Have.

Earth Day Every Day. The 22nd Of April is the day we earthlings band together to celebrate the space rock we call home. The celebration is called Earth Day and this place we share is pretty unique. Somehow, as if by magic, we ended up in the right place with the right conditions to have a rock full of life in a galaxy that, as far as we know, doesn’t support a system like ours. Sadly we have been taking this magical space rock...

Peptalk Take-Homes

One Balmy Eve of Inspiration. Last Tuesday I embarked on an adventure of inspiration, perspiration, and a sprinkling of frustration. It was one of those days (which seem to be how many of them have been going this year) when things just didn’t quite go to plan. Plan A was to get the dog in the car, drive him to boarding, then catch the train to Brisbane to attend the Peppermint Mag Peptalks event and spend the evening sleeping...

For the whole of December Sustainability in Style will be committed to Dressember, the style challenge that embraces the femininity of the dress to raise awareness of the exploitation of women and funds for The International Justice Mission, and A21 .

Life Lessons at Wanderlust

 Wanderlust Sunshine Coast 2015. For the last four days I have been blissed out on yoga in my own ‘back yard’ (kind of…I sadly don’t actually live at the Novotel Twin Waters) thanks to my lovely family who all contributed to send me to Wanderlust Sunshine Coast for my birthday. For those of reading who aren’t versed in the ways of the wanderer, Wanderlust aim to create a mindful living community based...

Brighton Fashion Week

The folks at Brighton Fashion Week (which will be completely sustainability focused for the first time since it’s public debut in 2009) were kind enough to get in contact and offer me the opportunity to attend their event that runs from the 15-17th of October. Unfortunately for me Brighton, England is quite a distance from Australia’s Sunshine Coast, however I thought it might be nice to share for all those readers who...

Ethical Writing and the Blogger

    Ethical Writing can be a tough but rewarding gig. There really is nothing better than being able to write from a honest place without the need to meet criteria from external parties. However, in a world where every (wo)man and their dog seems to have a blog (or at least an Instagram account) it can be difficult to maintain ethical momentum when there are constant pressures sell out. Did you know that way back (ha!) in...

Take Action: Adult Learners Week

The saying goes ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ But quite frankly this is a load of crap… you can teach a dog of any age new tricks as long as you do it in the right way and with plenty of delicious treats. Adult learners may not be readily bribed with Smackos or dried pig ears, but they are definitely able to add new skills to their accumulated knowledge base of structured learning and life...
