    Ps. Can’t wait to be talking to people here. Not myself! It’s lonely in this online Sustainability fun-park on my own.

    Just got some awesome news mid-edit. I’ve been asked to guest lecture on sustainable production systems for a forest and agriculture course at the uni I work at. It’s not until mid October but I’m really pleased with the offer because lecturing has been on my radar as possible career directions for the future. This should be a good little…[Read more]

    Well it’s been a long time since I last updated here but it’s not because I’ve been MIA. I’ve actually been flat-chat getting this set up in-between trying to keep the rest of life going and put some fires out along the way.

    I was pretty much ready to go a week or so ago with the launch of ESI but then I updated my theme and ALL the margins are…[Read more]

  • Ps. Also sussing out the full costs of my insurance for this site and for the events and markets I will be hosting and attending. It’s so complicated and insurance isn’t really my thing. I hope it’s not too expensive because it will really delay the full launch if I can’t afford to cover my own butt in case people injure themselves trying to pull…[Read more]

  • Yay! It’s been a productive week and although I’ve worn my eyeballs out looking at screens and I now resemble a T-Rex from all the keyboard and mouse action, I’m finally on the home stretch with the Eco Style Insiders set up.

    At the moment I’m in the process of reviewing all the pages and making sure they work in responsive mode. It’s a mammoth…[Read more]

    This kitten expresses how I have felt for the last couple of weeks. I put in some long hours last week updating the front end of my site only to find that it wasn’t working well on responsive on smartphones.

    I also picked up a book at a stores closing down sale on the weekend. I have been looking for an affordable or secondhand copy of The…[Read more]

  • Hello! Today I sort of feel like I’m here to write my captains log of my slow decent into website-building-madness. Yesterday I broke my own Sustainability in Style work record clocking 16 hours of Website Build Time in one day! I can’t say I love working so much but it’s key that the whole thing is developed to the point that all I have left…[Read more]

    So I got a reply from my Course Coordinator and it’s a whole year of study for me because of the way the ‘intro to research’ course fits into the Masters program. Oh well. Fingers and toes crossed that Eco Style Insiders take off like a rocket and I get loads of you in here doing the courses, exploring the video and audio, and I get to make…[Read more]

    Wow. It really feels like months since I wrote here. Four days can take a very long time sometimes! Yesterday I had A TERRIBLE day at work. Nothing went right. It started simple enough with my bus card not being in my purse and having to scrounge around for money for the bus.

    Then the real kick was that the girl I share space with at work who…[Read more]

    Phew! It’s been 15 Days since I last updated this personal reflection feed but it’s been less than 15 hours since I was last on this Members site build. This past couple of weeks I have thrown my all into this build (and by all I mean 12+ hours a day on days Iā€™m not at work) and I now have the space at what I’m calling ‘lock up’ stage. So t…[Read more]

  • Been trawling through my images to find the right ones for the Eco Style Insiders set up and found this classy gem. It’s the very first outfit I photographed for my Wardrobe Workout. Obviously I’m a high class blogger with epic photography skills in this shot. He He he.

  • Today I’m celebrating the final look over of all of the landing pages for the eight parts of the Eco Style Insiders experience. I’ve still got a lot to do but it’s such a relief to have a fully functioning ‘secret’ website within my website. Now all I have to do is finish adding the content, tweak the pages as I load it, and then get the…[Read more]

  • Thought it might be fun to share a little of my thoughts during the Eco Style Insiders build here. Hello to anyone who happened to find their way to this space while exploring the content. šŸ™‚

    Eco Style Insiders have been a VERY LONG labour of love and it really hasn’t always been an easy journey. It has been in the pipeline for so long, so…[Read more]
