Fashionably Revolutionary

 The uniform of change making. This morning I opened my very first ‘fashion revolutionary’ inspired product promo. It was from one eco and ethically minded lingerie company Naja. The product being advertised was a sports bra and the tagline read: Be an active (ist) for women Be an active (ist) for the planet Be an active (ist) for yourself The sportswear is being sold for $20 (mind you I can’t for the life of me find...

A Letter to My Skin: Project Dear Body

Love the skin you live in! Having spent a few days basking in the glow of the Wanderlust festival with the fab folks from Peppermint Mag I decided to be brave and join in their Project Dear Body. In this project Peppermint Magazine ask us to really look at ourselves and love who we are. Despite my severe allergy to cameras I can actually say I love who I am. I think that my self-love is a product of the values that my parents...

Tools For The Revolution

May We Never Forget On this day three years ago 1134 people were killed and another estimated 2500 were injured in a fashion tragedy that should never have happened. These people were lead into a building that others around them had decided was too unsafe to work in.

Take Action With Give A Fork

Isn’t it way sexier to take care of the planet than it is to trash it? Um… Hell yes! Sadly we’re trashing the planet and the way we consume food has a lot to do with it; takeaway coffee cups, lettuce in plastic bags, a raw deal for farmers, double beef pattie burgers… The food we choose to eat contributes more to our eco-footprint than our transport and home energy use combined. As a result, we are wreaking absolute havoc on our...
