I started out a whole lot more fashion minded. I modeled during high school and for a few years afterwards. But somewhere along the way, between 8 years of University study, working as a software developer and having two kids, I stepped out of the world of fashion and into the world of environmentalism.
This blog was created to get me back to my fashion roots, share some of my fashion and beauty advice and generally to have fun! Since my background is in writing about issues of the environment and sustainability, the main focus will be on sustainable beauty products and green fashion. That's not to say that I won't occasionally branch out and discuss or mention some non-green fashion piece that catches my eye, but I'll be sticking to clothes and products made with environmentally friendly materials or using more sustainable production methods.
More importantly, I will only be covering fashion stories that I find fashionable. There are quite a few items out there that are sustainably made but are, quite frankly, ugly, and no fashion-minded individual worth their salt would consider wearing them no matter how eco-conscious they are. So, they'll be little mention of crudely designed, unflattering items unless, of course, I feel like calling them out as something to avoid.
As for beauty products, I'll generally only discuss items that I've used and recommend or, at the very least, appear to me as an item of interest. And, when I haven't used it, I'll let you know. The same story goes with product reviews - if I don't like something, I'll let you know about it.
If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email!
