Fast fashion. Once upon a time, the “skint” reason made sense. If my work shoes broke and there was only enough money for bills and a spare £12, I couldn’t go out and buy patent leather brogues. Buy I could by something for £9 that […]
As with my quest to only buy recyclable, cruelty-free cosmetics, the new year has made me think of other changes. Nothing swift, just those slow-burn changes that make an impact over time. One such change that has been bouncing around overactive mind is Project333. […]
Happy New Year, and all that. You had a good Chrissy? A nice break from work (for some)? Laughed, drank, got fat? Good job.
Have you set any new year’s resolutions? Ugh. No. No I have not. You know why? Because I’m really not that resolute.
Being resolute feels so aggressive. I don’t mind being assertive, but I don’t particularly want to start the year by thinking about strict rules. The reasoning behind the resolutions is what’s important.
There are some positives I’ve been thinking about lately. Over the last year, there have been a few things I’ve put more effort into that I would like to continue. They also have a sustainable/ethical theme:
- When travelling, only buying locally-made souvenirs (sometimes challenging)
- Only buying “cruelty-free” cosmetics
- Moving away form “fast fashion” and buying quality, lasting items instead
- Not buying unnecessary nonsense that I’m only going to once
These are things I’ve always felt were “the right thing to do”, but I was either skint or weak.
Neither excuse is viable now. So I will make an effort. A bit more animal-friendly. A bit more environmentally-friendly. A bit more ethical.
No “new year” overhaul. Just being a bit… more.
I adore the crisp lines of a good suit. Executives, military, flight attendants; there are plenty of suited and booted looks that can draw you in. No doubt someone has done a study about why some work wear is just so appealing, but for me […]
Have you ever looked at a national or cultural outfit and wanted to borrow parts for yourself? Not that you want to encourage commercial cultural appropriation, but something caught you eye. The colour, the lines, the pattern, the fabric – something made you feel good […]
