What Was I Up To In January

January was a renewed inspiration for sustainability after my visit to the greenshowroom in Berlin. Only to put all that inspiration on paper, but it’ll come I promise you. It is funny how even events where you think they didn’t offer as much new information as you’d hoped can still inspire you by offering you hope that this is the way forward. When thousands of people gather to see how we can make our world healthier and lives of the people fairer, even innovate a new way to run the whole business, it tells me that I am not alone, that there is many of us who want to change how things are done currently.

Like everybody else, I reflected on my previous year and it’s successes, as well as reflected on what I wrote about sustainability on the blog. I learned a lot about sustainability last year, even if sometimes it doesn’t feel like it when there is still so much to learn, but that just pushes me forward. I am very thankful for the year I had in 2017 and can only hope that 2018 will be as good, although I planned to make it better. I reviewed the last 12 books that I read in 2017 and started in January with several interesting books, hopeful to continue with as many other interesting books!

I also had my birthday in January and received a beautiful present from my fiance, ethical earrings, about which I can’t wait to write about.

I thought that I want to make this blog even more just about sustainability, but then I wanted to share the favourite Instagram pics that I’d found in December, and I know I want to write about feminism and what I learn about it as well. I guess it all comes together in the end. I want this blog to be an inspirational place to live better whilst supporting yourself and the world as well!

Let’s hope February will be cheerier with more sunshine and more innovative news what comes to sustainability and feminism! How was your January, I would really like to know!

With love,

Happy Favourites of the Week – Birthday and Greenshowroom

The Oprah speech at the Golden Globes – Inspiring women and girls all around the world to have hope and action towards ending assaults towards women and speaking out about those who do it. Who wouldn’t be inspired by this speech!

When I Tackled The Junk In My Emotional Closet, I Found My Voice – An article that discusses how we do not only collect material items to clutter our life, but also emotional once. It makes you think about what emotional junk you are still keeping with you and what you should give up so that you can live more freely.

Korres Wildrose Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial – This is a little miracle maker. In the words of Korres, “it is more than a mask and more than a night cream”. The first time I tried it I was wondering what happened to my skin as it was glowing and I looked so healthy and only after second time using it did I realise it was the facial. It is gentle, absolutely lovely and easy to use, and I will definitely be using this from now on especially when I need that extra healthy look the next day (when wouldn’t we need it?).

Greenshowroom in Berlin – I attended the greenshowroom in Berlin, which is a tradeshow for sustainable and ethical fashion. I visited many beautiful sustainable brands and was blown away by how many there already are with different beautiful items and something for everybody! I attended fashion sustain and fashion tech conferences, which were very inspirational. And I attended few evening talks and pop-up shows to round it up. It was a very busy 3 days with too little sleep and overflowing inspiration!

My birthday – I got to spend the morning in bed with delicious brunch eaten in bed as well. I got to relax, read and watch tv shows in peace and in the afternoon go out for dinner. I got the most beautiful earrings as a present and they are ethical as well, what a bonus!
