First of all Happy Earth Day! If you don’t already know Earth Day is a global event involving a billion people including individuals, businesses, charities, organisations and governments all raising awareness of climate changes and making changes to combat it. I have written a post Sustainable style and Earth Day at style-is.co.uk with some very easy things that you can do today and for the future to make a difference.
This weekend I managed to get myself over to a few of the events at Bath in Fashion. Bath is one of my favourite places ever and definitely such a fashionable and stylish place. I particularly love that the city has so much amazing history with amazing views and architecture. Bath is also a great place to shop sustainably with some amazing charity and vintage shops. If you happen to be visiting please check out my post A Vintage and Second Hand Guide to Bath.
My weekend started with a conversation with Liberty London Girl. I have followed Liberty London Girl for nearly 6 years since I first started blogging, so was really interested to find out a little more about Sasha Wilkins, the blogger behind the blog. Sasha was incredibly entertaining and interesting to listen to. She talked about her life as a journalist and a blogger, blogging and working with brands and her sausage dog amongst other things. I am really inspired by the huge success of Liberty London Girl but her stories about how difficult things were in the beginning have also made me feel really motivated about both my blog and own business. I was far to busy enjoying listening to make notes but if you wanted to read more about what Sasha had to say, there is a great post about it on Mission;style. Following the talk, I have decided to make a few changes to the blog and will be introducing three new monthly columns about natural beauty, natural food and recipes, eco gadgets and green lifestyle. Although they aren’t exactly ‘ethical fashion’ I thought they might be interesting to read but more importantly I think I will enjoy writing them.
I finished off the weekend perfectly when I went for lunch with my friends at Carluccios and a wander around the Vintage Fashion Fair at Green Park Station. I treated myself to a lime green lace dress which I am sure will be featured in an outfit post soon!
You can check out my instagrams of this weekend above. Also really pleased this week to have been featured on Ecosalon – New Green Voices: The 5 Best Green Fashion Blogs.
I hope that you have had a lovely weekend and a good start to the week. Are you doing anything for Earth Day?
With warmest wishes
