Female Empowerment Friday #02

Body / Other

Look who’s back?! This rubric is fun and needed. Noteworthy is that it came to me as Feminist Friday, but I figured that the word feminism scares some people off. So using that word would require a little disclaimer – which I ended up adding to Edition #01 anyway, but without the -ism. I write and speak many disclaimers, really. ‘This is what I do and this is why.’ Interesting. So: Female Empowerment Friday for listed […]

Stories of clothes and ourselves – a wardrobe update

Leave a comment

Earlier I shared with you my enthusiasm for the capsule wardrobe: a simplistic method that, when applied correctly, would free you from all wardrobe misery. I set out to play with it, and I already wrote some thoughts about my experiences. Here are a few more of those thoughts & experiences. A few months ago I had a short period of visiting webshops to browse through pictures of clothing, searching for items I’d consider buying. […]

My spiritual background

It’s time for me to write something about my spiritual background! In the last few years I have learnt a lot and I have come to feel more secure about talking and writing about the theme of spirituality or consciousness. Also, recently I promoted my blog a little more and a friend even interviewed me about consciousness and meditation for his website. So now seems a good time to unfold a little, for who is interested. […]

Capsule wardrobe + me

comments 4
Other / sustainability

My approach to clothing is changing! I started to use the principles of the capsule wardrobe. Many bloggers have gone before me, but now is my time to join in. Simply put, I want pretty, sustainable and ethically made clothes; I want to be happy with my clothes; I want to buy less miss-buys (that make me unhappy); and I want my clothes to go together better so to more easily make stunning outfits. Also, […]

Battle of the bloggers: quantity vs. quality

Other

Here’s an observation: Is it so that media, including bloggers and vloggers, are more about quantity than quality? Meaning the quantity of updates, blogs, vlogs, articles, references and most of all: the quantity of readers and the money that can be made through these readers. This is quite a negative view, but I am seriously concerned about it. I get it: in order to be financially independent one needs to generate income. Writers and vloggers […]

Last-minute gifting: massage bar of choice (for lovers!)

Body / Other

Every December I find myself not wanting to have to buy gifts. In addition, this year I also vowed to not order gifts online. I care too much for sustainability to carelessly buy whatever. Yes, making people happy is nice, but too often people don’t get much happier through receiving not-asked-for gifts. People (should) know well what stuff they use and do not use and so what would contribute to their happiness; it is often […]

Reclaim your brain using funny tape

Other

This awesome activity can be performed at home and you only need tape to do it: cover up all unwanted brand logos and names in your house! This allows you to experience more peace and joy in your home. Have you ever deliberately focused on all visible brand logos in your kitchen or bathroom? If you do so, you will likely find that there are plenty. Normally, they’re not too catchy or disturbing so you […]

Must-see documentary: The Goddess Project

Art / Featured / film / Other

I urge you to go see The Goddess Project, if you haven’t seen it yet. I am tremendously positive and enthusiastic about it and I know why. The movie is a compilation of the most powerful pieces of conversation the film makers had with over 100 women in the US. I am so happy this documentary is made. The things that are said are SO enormously important for everyone to hear, to know. The themes […]
