I started this review with nothing in mind but experimenting with new skin care and makeup. Due to my strong advocacy in sustainable fashion and using organic materials to manufacture my fashion line, I just wanted to see what the fuss was about when it came to organic skin care. I am now a month into organic products and have reached the point of never going back. As a lay user there were many changes I found, especially after the first two weeks. Detox – and a heavy one – was what my body went though! I had not really researched much on the products being used so I was learning about them while using them and actually experiencing the effects for myself. I dabbled with a few organic and natural products for my face, hair and body. The term ‘organic’ refers to how an ingredient was farmed – it must be prepared and grown without pesticides, chemical fertilizers, growth hormones or antibiotics. A ‘natural’ ingredient is considered to be anything that’s a plant, mineral or animal by-product.
Getting married is always an adventure, I have always been on the other side of it, making custom made wedding outfits for brides, but somehow for my own wedding things went the other way, and I found it really difficult to find elements to have a SUSTAINABLE and SLOW wedding! I decided to take a plunge into researching on how to have a sustainable wedding. There are so many things to take into consideration from non-toxic makeup and hair products to sustainable clothing! I blog about a lot of ethical brands and a couple of these just stood out for and are perfect for those sourcing for an ethical wedding for the bride, brides maid or even a wedding guest.
With each passing year, couture’s well documented obsession with organic French-girl style has only evolved. When we first discovered that fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world, we knew that something had to change.
Fashion with a purpose, styles that are sustainable. Our mission is to create garments in an ethical manner by paying our workers a fair wage, designing garments that are chic, stylish yet wearable, and using natural fibers throughout the collection.
We have launched a limited-edition, 26-piece capsule collection — including corset dresses, cocktail gowns, ruffled tops, shirt blouses and asymmetrical skirts.
This collection is inspired by the French post-impressionist era, especially cubism, in stressing the structural elements latent in nature. One of my favorite piece is the ROSE dress which is quite literally made up of waste fabric. One hundred and fifteen roses were constructed to create the skirt of this corset dress !
Help Solve the Plastic Crisis + Giveaway!
The plastic Crisis has spread far and wide and therefore even though we are trying to ban plastic bags , there are other options we can use as a go-to as well. The problem is plastic bags are everywhere, especially places they shouldn’t be! This throws light on fact that the mass production of the plastic bag may end up being one of humanity’s biggest regrets.
As we fold up our beach blankets and say goodbye to summer I took a look at some fresh new sustainable autumn workwear brands I could pull out this fall!

For many, summer is the season of fun especially when it comes to everyday dressing, which certainly includes the ultimate wardrobe staple – the dress. However, that is also a day-to-night year-round essential we need for so many occasions, which makes it reasonable to spend a bit more time and money to find the right one.

The heatwave has hit different parts of the world and the sun, even if it feels so nice, is not only a skin killer but makes us prone to many other dangerous diseases.
That being said, we always had a hard time picking a non-greasy, organic sunscreen, which is not only safe but also chemical-free. If you are looking for natural, safe and cruelty-free way to protect your skin from the damages of the sun, here are a few to experiment with!
It’s been over a year now that I’ve switched to ethical beauty and fashion, and although the transformation has been slow, I now love the feel of my clothes and skincare more than ever. The world is definitely more aware of sustainable living with swap parties being held, second-hand street fairs and a new niche of luxury sustainable boutiques seem to have appeared all over.
Lately, many people are switching to organic beauty (including me), however, finding the right natural products for your skin type takes time and money.
In the meantime, I started making my own DIYs beauty treatments, which are absolutely natural and organic. The only downside is they don’t last long so you can’t store them for months. Instead, make them in small batches. Not only do they totally work but it’s a great and a highly satisfying knowing what exactly you are using on your skin and as well as seeing the effects! These are the top 4 you need to try!
