Green Fashion Jewellery Envy: Purple Mango

Green Fashion Jewellery Envy: Purple Mango

Have you ever come across an individual whose inner beauty was so radiant that it outshone their physical beauty? My idol Audrey Hepburn automatically springs to mind. The perfect combination of character, charm, beauty and elegance, you would be hard pressed to find someone who disagrees. And another such person for me is Roberta Rangel....

Eco-Fashion Label: Make Amend

When my path crossed that of eco-fashionista turned eco-designer Cassandra Pons’, I knew that she would feature perfectly on this blog. Not only is she an inspiring young woman, Cassandra, or Cassie as she is more commonly known, has also created an eco-fashion label Make Amend that encourages other young women to invest in unique...

2013 Sustainable Leader Award

2013 Sustainable Leader Award

When I received the press release for the 2013 Sustainable Leader Award I was utterly gutted when I read the fine print: nominations open to US residents only. So I couldn’t enter and I couldn’t nominate any of my Australian eco idols. Very annoying. But given my eco advocacy is not limited to the country...

An Eco-friendly Jewellery Label Called RAT

An Eco-friendly Jewellery Label Called RAT

Most professional bloggers state that to be a successful blogger one should never apologise for breaks in between posts. According to these pro bloggers, there are no excuses for not posting regularly with daily posts being the ultimate goal. But rules are made to be broken… So I’m truly very sorry for the delayed post…!...

An Eco-Friendly Engagement Party

An Eco-Friendly Engagement Party

Last year Ben and I held our first engagement party in QLD. We had a tight budget and wanted to keep it fuss-free and low key as well as minimise our carbon footprint as much as possible. So armed with all of this in mind, we decided to forgo paper invites and instead created the...

Tailoring Tomorrow: A Sustainable Fashion Event

Tailoring Tomorrow: A Sustainable Fashion Event

To start this fabulous new year I thought it was fitting that my first blog post pay homage to the central theme of this blog: fashion. In particular, an upcoming fashion event that promises not only to be fun and entertaining but informative as well. And I’m not referring to MSFW, or more commonly known...

To Buy Nothing New

To Buy Nothing New

I’m not planning to lose weight. I’m not giving up alcohol. And I’m not cutting down on coffee. My New Year’s resolution is simply this: To buy nothing new. Now let’s be clear on the ground rules: This will not apply to the giving of gifts. I will only apply this rule to one thing...

The Age of Minimalism

The Age of Minimalism

Madonna may have contributed to popular culture when she sang about a material girl living in a material world, but these words could not be further from my own life. My life has entered what I call, the Age of Minimalism. I am downsizing rather than upsizing. Subtracting rather than adding. Selling rather than buying....

Fighting Extinction with Beads for Wildlife

Fighting Extinction with Beads for Wildlife

I am an animal lover. And not only do I love cute cuddly domestic animals. I am in love with the large majestic kind too. I have ventured to the Melbourne Zoo several times, the Werribee Open Range Zoo twice, and once each to Sydney’s Taronga Zoo and the San Diego Zoo. I’ve also been...

On Being Semi-Vegetarian

On Being Semi-Vegetarian

When I tell some people that I am a vegetarian, the question that often follows this statement is: Why? I like to answer this question by saying that if I can’t kill the animal myself, than I won’t eat it. I spent two years living in the country where I reluctantly supported my partner in...
