A Letter to Say We’re Sorry

A Letter to Say We’re Sorry

Dear Mother Nature, I got your message the other day and I’m sorry I haven’t got back to you – I’ve been really busy at work. Anyway, I know why you called and I know you’re disappointed. I guess I’d be disappointed too if I were in your position. You asked us politely to stop what...

What it takes to be a writer

What it takes to be a writer

 Photo courtesy of photosteve101 I have an ordinary 9 to 5 day job just like most people. But unlike most people, I like to spend my evenings and weekends writing and blogging. Writers don’t need many tools to complete their work. Most writers just need a pen and a notebook. Others, like me, prefer their laptop....

The Slow Fashion Revolution

The Slow Fashion Revolution

Last weekend I went to the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane to see the thought-provoking “21st Century” exhibition. Consumerism. Globalism. Materialism. These were some of the key themes that artists the world over explored as part of this free exhibition. And as much as  I love fashion, the concept of “fast fashion” doesn’t sit well...

And I would have continued this excessive indulgent...

‘Green’ Up Your Closet

‘Green’ Up Your Closet

You’re standing at your wardrobe staring at the abomination of clothes and you want to start all over again. There are too many ‘cheaply-made’ clothes that you haven’t worn, or will never wear again. There are too many ‘cheap’ clothes. There are clothes you bought on sale. Clothes you found in bargain bins. Clothes you...

Taking the fashion high road

Taking the fashion high road

Many of us actually think twice before devouring greasy unhealthy food void of nutritional value. In a culture where food and health consciousness is an acceptable part of everyday life, many of us watch what we eat, kilojoule count and read the nutritional fine print on food packaging. Thus: if you are what you eat, than it...

Becoming an Eco Warrior Princess!

Becoming an Eco Warrior Princess!

Photo by Nirudha Perera   Yesterday I wrote about how I tried to live a greener life in the bright lights of the city. Today I want to elaborate on how I continue to live a green life out in the country. So what do I do? Jack Johnson said it best with his song about...

Tips to a more eco-friendly life

Tips to a more eco-friendly life

It’s easy for me to talk about sustainability and even easier for me to follow an eco-friendly life – we live on a 2 acre property with enough space to grow our own veggies, install 3 water tanks and be able to live off the grid so we never have to hear from any energy...
