The Sweet Dreamers way
To be composed of colour and song is maddening A burning life that is romanticized, of the sweet dreamers way Ah! The sweet dreamers way!
Once strong and work worn hands, now frail, trembling with knitting needle between weary fingers. A smile rarely seen, but a steady woman of days gone by, the old eyes now watching a world slip by outside her window. A soul I learned to be a secret, artistic place - forgotten by the years of life and hard work.
Ethical Wardrobe and how Seeking simple makes it important
Hello my lovely friends! As spring roles in “My ethical wardrobe and how seeking simple made it important” has been a topic which I have been pondering this last little while. Truthfully I have always been aware of the concept of Ethical, and it sat for a long while at the back of my mind. For that reason, I rarely shopped fast fashion chains. However, the temptation of those cheep clothes was definitely a pull. For around two years, I threw Ethical out the window and went straight for those big brands of Fast Fashion. Shein, Justfab, George, etc.
Five problems With Social Media
It has been said before, but I will say it again. We are a people more connected then ever before, yet are all the lonelier for it. Social Media has opened a world of opportunity never before imagined. A chance for anyone to become something, to find an "out of the box" source of success that was never available to the previous generations.
A Hidden Feast
The twilight hangs over the world, a gossamer web of mysterious delights. The tall fur and pine stand proud, sentinels of an ancient pace. A well worn path, thick with fallen needles, leads the way to a forgotten hold. It is a broken soul who wanders that deep way, who's heart has become completely lost. Perhaps it takes a minute, maybe years, to travel that forest path. Time does not change here, darkness never takes full hold.
The Warmth and Joy of a Simple Hot-Chocolate
I have been soaking in these true fall days - where the day is crisp, golden and bright. Oh the delights! Jack Frost has trailed his Intricate designs, and autumn has danced behind, her laughter the sweetest sound of the wind catching gold, ruby and butter yellow leaves.
What Comes After
The mind is a funny place - it can be your greatest friend or your strongest enemy. What comes after - when you mind has been the only place of truth and certainty, yet turns on your like a viper, poisoning your life and slowly eating away at what makes you, you.
I believe sustainable fashion has become a trend, more than anything. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. Even if it is a trend, there is still a growing awareness of the detriment of fast fashion, supporting unethical brands and not being at all aware of the impact that fast fashion has. But, it is more than just being sustainable – it is about being intentional with everything we consume. Let’s face it, we live in a world of consumerism and it is so easy to fall into the trap of more.
