Spreading the word offline

Hello everyone! I do hope you haven’t missed my posts too much recently. Truth is, I’ve been busy doing all types of things (some uni work was involved), that I decided to exercise no rush when it comes to blogging. I just finished classes, which I will promptly use to update you on what’s happened in the meantime.

A few weeks ago, I have finally let myself convinced to give a talk about Zero Waste here at university. Continue reading

I’m not weird, I am the future.

Rant Warning! (Don’t say I didn’t tell you.)

This is to the people who make me feel like the world’s greatest weirdo, by judging me, calling me names, joking about me, boycott me, or just look at me funny, I’ve now composed a little letter I wrote to you, in the hope that one of you accidentally finds this blog. Here it is: Continue reading

60 Days After: Shopping Ban Review

Wow, has it been 60 days already since I announced by shopping-ban? I should have called it “Shopping-and-Blogging-Ban”, but the last part of that came about rather involuntarily. If you hung around until now, reward yourself with a nice orange juice (you deserve it!), and get ready for my Shopping Ban Review: Continue reading

Update on my Capsule Wardrobe, or: How I accidentally developed a colour palette

A few months ago, I decided to give Project 333 a try, in which you basically commit to only wear 33 items of clothing for 3 months (read details & rules here). It’s been a great experience which has helped me to simplify my wardrobe. I’ve chosen not to continue with the actual Project 333, but stick to a capsule wardrobe with only consciously purchased, valued and good quality pieces. Of course, without keeping count, my wardrobe has expanded a bit in the last time (also due to the fact that having just one pair of jeans is poor planning).

After my birthday (which was recently), I set out again to piece together a winter wardrobe; adding new bits where old ones broke and haven’t been replaced. Coming home after one such “shopping”-trip, I suddenly realised that the red pair of jeans I bought was exactly the same colour as my only skirt. And then an epiphany came upon me (can you say that?):

All the clothes I recently bought and the ones I loved the most were all the same three or four colours! Continue reading

2015 Wrap Up! 2016, Here We Come!

It’s the end of the year: time to get all sentimental about what I’ve achieved and what I haven’t in one year. Then moving on to the feeling that there is so much I had hoped or even planned to do, and the realisation that no human will ever do all those glorious things we all dream about. All in all a fairly depressing time.

And also time for a recap. What happened on this blog, what happened in my life? How is this blog, which was supposed to run for one year at first, going to continue? And how is my life going to continue?

Well, let’s dive right into it, shall we? Continue reading
