A Mindful Night In

Plan a Mindful movie night. There really isn’t a better activity to pass the cooler months than getting together with your friends and having a movie night. For our Mindful In May theme I’ve picked three thought provoking watches that are totally different from one another. You can choose a very meditative and mindful night in, a savvy-on-trend look at minimalism, or a not-so-easy but very important look at how mindless...

Exercises for Mindfulness

All muscles need exercise. Even those that exist all up there in our brains! As we have established in previous posts this month, mindfulness is all about bringing ourselves into the now. It can be easy in a world full of distractions to have our minds in every place but the present moment. Babies are prime examples of living in the now (loving the heck out of crib-mobiles and wondering where we go when we play peek-a-boo) because...

Move Mindfully

 Have you thought about how you get from A to B and back again? If Instagram teaches us anything it’s that stylish people generally move around a lot. They fly from place to place snapping the most beautiful and lust-worthy photos that make us green with travel envy. While adventures are fun, it’s important to keep in mind that every time we choose to change our geographical location we have the opportunity to select a...

Mindfulness Is The New Black

Mindfulness is more than a buzzword. Hands up who has heard the word ‘mindful’ thrown around their media channels? Yup… I see you there in front of your screen with your hand in the air (you can put it down now). Mindfulness is everywhere. A buzzword from the wellness industry, being mindful is actually so much more than just a trendy idea to throw around at your post-yoga-smoothie catch up. Mindfulness is a mindset not a slogan and...

Beating the Eco Blues: Three Tips To Consider

Living isn’t always easy. Life is full of challenges. Navigating a social landscape where sustainability and people/animal ethics doesn’t always get the first priority can be really difficult. Add on top of that the fact that the world seems a little more bonkers than usual (i.e. the prospects of war, missile testing, financial panic, and all the other scary stuff being thrown around the news of late) it can be a little...

A Sustainable Wrap Up!

The Mous Mag Wrap Up! This not-so-little wrap up on the Mous Mag panel discussion I participated in last week is a little bit late. The universe and my computer seem to be conspiring against me at the moment. I’ve had words with both and hopefully (with fingers and toes crossed) this post will actually find it’s way to the online blinking computery world we know, love, and/or worship.  To recap- last Wednesday I...

Combating Conscious Shopping Excuses

Hey Planet! I love you but nah. When it comes to being ‘eco’ we fashionistas (along with everyone else) are really good at making excuses why we can’t make more earth friendly changes. It really doesn’t matter how far along you are with your environmentally minded evolution, there are always ways to improve. It’s just the barrier or comfort zone pushing that can make the transition scary. Being the...

Fungi and Fashion- What’s the Link?

Mushroom Magic! After spending the afternoon hunting for forest fungi with my Mr. in tow I thought what better time than now to share with you some fungi photos and relate it back to fashion. While it can be difficult to see the links between a forest walk loaded with bright, beautiful (and some butt-ugly but still awesome) fungi to fashion, the relationship is more obvious than you might think! Fungi, mushrooms and bacteria are being...
