Conscious Shopping: The Reformation

Cover
I love fashion. I really, really do. But I’m quite proud of always being a conscious shopper; I go with a list, I know what I need, I only buy things that go together, and I try to stick to the ‘capsule wardrobe’ method. But, turns out, ‘conscious’ meant much more than just that! A term that’s recently gaining much popularity, ‘conscious shopping’ is apparently all about buying things that do not harm the environment as a whole: no child-labor, no animal cruelty, minimal carbon footprint, and so on. I’m in love with that concept! See, I’m a civil engineer/writer who’s quite a passionate humanitarian and environmentalist. So, obviously, I took to Google to search for ‘conscious brands’ and that’s how I stumbled upon The Reformation. Continue reading

I was a die-hard bookworm growing up. Seriously, I was one of those kids that got told off by their moms for reading instead of doing homework. But adulthood hasn’t been fair to me; most days, I’m way too busy to even read through my whole mailbox, let alone an actual book. Still, I do so try to tick books off of my list – God knows I’m still addicted to buying more books than I could ever read! However, reading has always been a much-enjoyed hobby of mine, and lately, I’ve been working real hard on actively reading again. So if you’re a lazy bookworm nowadays, or you’re looking to pick up a smarter hobby, here are my tried and tested ways to start reading more! Continue reading

Collection Cravings: Zara AW16 Collection – The Shoe Edition

cover

Ask me what’s my favorite retail store any day, any season, and I’d say Zara every. single. time. I have a passionate relationship going on with Zara; admittedly, it’s one sided, as the prices often speak clearly of their feelings towards me… but still, they’ve been working on that! That store owns my heart. More to the point, I really, really love shoes… especially their shoes! I often leave a store without having noticed a single clothing item that doesn’t go on feet… Even worse, during college years, I used to spend whatever money I had to spare on shoes, and ended up with a multitude of questions as to how I literally have nothing to wear. That’s the story of my life… Continue reading
