Style Session: Top 5 Thrift Finds

Looking pretty chuffed in a denim jacket and white shirt combo inspired by Miranda Kerr Miranda looking fine and dandy in her shirt and jacket combo Seb and I doing our very best 'Blue Steel' looks. Hey... at least it's his face in this photo and not his bum! Kate Bosworth (A.K.A queen of the sweater) and her Hubby who is sporting a very furry neck companion. Now that's a new way to show off your pooch. Seb is a little heavy for this...

Reflections: Cost and Worth

  This post arose from a gifting experience in my office yesterday. A dear friend and coworker is leaving our plant science office for a much colder climate and had recently lopped off all his dreadlocks. As a parting gift I went on a mission on behalf of the work crew to buy him a beanie to warm his naked head on his new life adventure. Finding a last minute ethical/sustainable beanie purchase in the subtopics is a difficult...

Reflections: Collect Moments

    It has rained for most of the long weekend and the beings of my home are all becoming stir crazy. We ventured out for a walk that got cut short by rain but hubby managed to capture our moments in these cute photos. Photos that prompted me to reflect back on the ideas of voluntary simplicity, consumption patterns and the meaning behind items and it all started with this famous quote: While you are alive collect moments...

Thank You Eco Brides Magazine

  A great big thank you to Eco Brides magazine for featuring Ged and I’s wedding on their blog. It was so delightful to take a break from the end of Uni semester assessment writing cram session to read through their beautifully written article. Especially when I saw how many delightful and heartwarming comments were posted on the bottom from friends and family (check out Ged’s proud Dad’s double post of...

Tried and Tested: Finisterre Organic Cotton Hoodie

After my Wardrobe Workout challenge ended I knew I was desperately requiring a grey hoodie. Unsuccessfully scouring every corner of the web and every thrift-store in the neighbourhood to find the perfect one, the lovely Steph from The Inelegant Horse Rider informed me that the UK cold water surf company Finisterre had the best hoodies on the planet. Ordering in late Spring from a UK company meant that I didn’t receive my hoodie...

Tried and Tested: Vege Threads

Having owned my post-Wardrobe-Workout Vege Threads basics for some time now I can safely say all have been well and truly tested. The Australian company are committed to sustainability and social awareness. When I made my purchase their organic cotton, plant dyed basics were made in Indonesia with a percentage of proceeds of sale going to their sponsor foundation. Since then Vege Threads have been certified by Ethical Clothing...

NYNC: January Reflections

January has passed and the month of wardrobe decluttering has come to an end. Reflection is an important part of the learning process so here are a few things that I learnt during my ‘New Year New Consumer’ (NYNC) personal exploration. The Good This month has been a month solid of reading. For a woman who struggles to find the time to read this is a serious accomplishment. Being able to reflect on this reading process and...

NYNC: Starting from the start. 

It’s been a tricky month and due to a variety of reasons (all of which far too boring to share) I haven’t had very much spare ‘home’ time. It has definitely made the NYNC posts a bit challenging to keep up with and I really haven’t been able to action any cleaning up or moving out of items. However, I have had the opportunity to start thinking about how to tackle my closet ‘mess’. Firstly...

New Year New Consumer: Reflect on 2014

Each new year it is good to take some time to reflect on the moments of the year past. Taking time to reflect on the moments that stood out can really highlight how truly amazing this gift of life can be. Whether you choose to focus on the positives, the negatives, or a mixture of both, it’s up to you. I personally like to take my pen in hand and my mind back to the past for the first day of the year. Here are my top fourteen...

The DIY Kimono Attempt

It has been such a long time since I posted a wardrobe workout post having been distracted by complete rubbish (literally) for the last few weeks. So a bit of a fashion fix was long overdue. Before we converse about kimonos please accept my apologies. The website has been a bit of a disaster the last two weeks and I hope no one has wasted their time trying access it only to receive countless error messages.  There has been a big issue...
