Ecofest

Recently I was trawling my emails and noticed one from my best friend, Belinda Ponczek, who also happens to be a fashion stylist. In this particular email, I had sent her a list of interview questions when I found out that she had been fortunate enough to participate in styling ECOFEST, the largest environmental conference in New York...

The Sustainable Fashion Industry

The Sustainable Fashion Industry

It seems that every where you look, “green” is in. Earth Hour, an idea born in Sydney, is now a world-wide phenomena. There are more solar panels on the roofs of urban houses. Energy efficient light globes have replaced incandescent ones. And we can even purchase carbon offsets when we fly! With excessive media coverage...

Menstrual Cup Business: The Diva Cup

Menstrual Cup Business: The Diva Cup

What I am about to share in this blog post may be thrown in the “too much information” basket. For the blokes who read my blog, I recommend that it should be thrown in the too much information basket and suggest you do not read beyond this sentence (unless of course you want to then...

Eco Beauty Tips

Eco Beauty Tips

In my social circles, I am a well-known fashionista and lover of all things fashion. But I’m quick to point out to new acquaintances that I am not a narcissist – I just enjoy taking pride in my appearance and love the creative aspect of fashion. If you’re a new reader, I’m sure you don’t...

Cycle Chic

Cycle Chic

Forget the car and forget public transport. The trendiest mode of transportation is the humble push bike. Yes, you heard correctly. It’s no longer just a children’s play thing and relegated to childhood memories of days spent attempting to ride with no hands. The push bike is now an adult must-have. This two-wheel creation dating...

Renewable Energy Target

Renewable Energy Target

When Denmark announced last year that the country’s renewable energy target was 100% by 2050, I clapped for joy and tweeted and shared this good news story on all my social media networks. I consumed the subsequent news articles and regurgitated the information to anyone who would listen. I became an admirer of the Denmark politicians...

Pins By Lydra – Art to Wear

Pins By Lydra – Art to Wear

If you like art and fashion than you’ll like Pins By Lydra, a new fashion label founded by Melbourne eco designer, Linda Vydra. Pins By Lydra fuses art and fashion together by creating ‘art to wear’ (or wearable art if you fancy) by allowing artists, photographers, painters and graphic designers to showcase their artwork on a pair of leggings. Art on...

Project Green Wedding

Project Green Wedding

Photo by Vera Devera   I am following the road most people travel. I am getting married. However Ben and I have decided to take the road less travelled and decided against a “cookie cutter” wedding. Ben and I just can’t justify the extravagance or the expense. It’s not uncommon nowadays for couples to spend $20,000 or...

Should I become vegetarian?

Should I become vegetarian?

Photo by S McGarnigle   Life is extraordinary. Just when you’re starting to feel comfortable and content, you’re thrown a curve ball. One minute you’re tucking in to a Thai Green Chicken Curry dish, savouring the flavours and commenting on the tenderness of the chicken. And then a traumatic event occurs and the next minute you’re...

Banishing the work uniform blues

Banishing the work uniform blues

Some people enjoy wearing a uniform to work. They like the fact that they don’t have to think about what to wear each day. They like the fact that they can save time and use it that time to focus on other things. I am not one of those people. As a child of Filipino parents, I...

Transcending Earth Hour 2012

Transcending Earth Hour 2012

Photo courtesy of Lajon Tangaco   On March 31st at 8.30pm the global community united and turned off the lights in a symbolic gesture to save our planet. This was Earth Hour. Unfortunately, this Eco Warrior Princess was not amongst them. What was more important than Earth Hour to this environmental crusader you’re wondering? Not...

Suck it up Princess

Suck it up Princess

I may be all smiles and laughter. I may be all lip-gloss and perfume. I may make living in a shed look like the easiest thing in the world. But I tell you what: it ain’t! There was one time when I woke up in the middle of the night and I heard scurrying. I could hear...
