There were a lot of posts I hoped to post during November, and then an engagement happened and social media went mental and life turned into another to-do list. So I'm squeezing in as much as I can before December comes to scare us into buying Christmas presents. Uh oh. Starting with a new little… Continue reading important articles :: issue i.
Finally I upgraded my phone. Now I can actually update apps, take photos, and go nuts on podcasts. With a new phone also comes the need for a new case - I am not one of those graceful and dainty enough to never drop it. I figured it would probably be best to leave my… Continue reading the sustainers :: pela case.
I'll be honest - not all the clothing purchases I've been making have been completely ethical. It's the issue where I desperately need something to wear, whether for a particular event or the changing season or old stuff = broken, but the money situation does not match the wishing situation; the one where I try… Continue reading the battles of a sustainable life.
Last night, as I was preparing and planning today's inspiring-enough-for-a-Monday outfit, I realised the sheer lack of colour in my wardrobe and jewellery collection. I've been quite aware of this for some time - I steer towards a more monochrome palette on days when there is little inspiration or creativity; it's an easy go-to, never-fail… Continue reading a distinct lack of colour.
( Or for a lifetime - also quite happy with that ). The need for a holiday has sprung on me again. I know, I know, it's only been four weeks since my Tanzania adventure, but that Sydney life sucks it out of you, drastically quickly. All those horns and sirens, grumpy walkers, angry men,… Continue reading coastal for a day.
I have another important PSA. One that may or may not change your fashion views and desired clothing for the coming months. Of course it revolves around the ever-great, all-inspiring Celine - because when a label is headed up by a lady like Phoebe Philo, how could it not? I got so excited at first… Continue reading reliving :: celine resort.
There's enough content, labels and inspiring people on sustainable fashion to cover at least 5 posts a day, every day, for years and years. Sadly this isn't my full-time job. Sadly the time to put it all together doesn't exist in my life at the moment. So I settle for a couple of times a month,… Continue reading the sustainers :: mara hoffman.
I should apologise - two whingy posts this month already. And it's November! It's meant to be a happy month! And indeed is already proving to be. ( Even with the current shocking, unimaginable results of the US election, I refuse to turn into a ball of negativity. We can only fight to improve this… Continue reading a podcast gift for you.
I've been thinking about how to spend my remaining department store vouchers and birthday money, and my stomach groans every time. Shopping trip anxiety is real. Even the online shop drives me crazy - figuring out the right size ( hopefully ), the pain of returning if it's wrong, that ghastly shipping cost. Not to… Continue reading the shopping avoidance syndrome.
My aversion to perfection was recently openly displayed to all with the ending of the latest Bachelorette Australia season. While most were cheering for Lee, the seemingly "perfect" one, I was behind Matty all the way - the underdog, fun-loving, not-too-serious but totally-in-love one. Everyone would say, "but Lee is perfecttttt, how could you not… Continue reading away from perfection.
