Love, Kisses, and Decisions

Now that my holiday is over, and I’m through (most of) your *won-der-ful* comments – oh the feelings!! – ideas started crawling from the rocks they’ve been hiding under…

DECISION #1 GOING GREEN on HALLOWEEN

Since August (motivation) and September (ecofair fashion) I’ve experimented with providing a monthly direction for my so called “side quests”, posts and quests that go beyond Green Beauty – food, fashion, soul detox…

I now decided to stick with it for a while, and what could be better for October than Halloween.
While I agree that most of it has been painfully commercialised, it still inspires a lot of crafters, foodies, and artists to create eerily beauteous things.

So this is our October theme: “green” crafts, food, beauty, and entertaining for Halloween! Woohoo!

The tag is “Funtober“!

DECISION #2 LOVE IS ALL AROUND US

Words fail me when I try to say just how much I love that you ladies are around, reading, thoughtfully commenting, and sharing what this adventurer finds along her way. It’s so incredible, and I want to thank you once again! With all my heart: THANK YOU.”

I’ve been thinking about how to show you my appreciation, and have been working on something since August already… Today I think I’m close enough to the finish line to announce just WHAT it’s going to be. Ready?

There are two thoroughly researched, non-commercial, free (and ‘termless’ if I can put it that way) Beauty Food 101 ebooks coming up, for you, my friends, exclusively. They’ll be posted, password-protected, under Hall of fame, and you’ll receive a note from me. I’m getting help and advice from an internationally renowned nutritionist. I’m so excited! 

(Update: they did go live and now the page is closed ;))

I hope that BEAUTYCALYPSE will remain a place where we can talk BS-free but not fun-free sustainability and take our own lives to the next, the better level. It’s the only way!

Because: women. Because: community!

DECISION #3 FASHION’S HERE TO STAY

I must admit, writing about fashion hasn’t been on my radar in March, as the Quest began (Metropolis post, March 1 2013).

But we all gotta wear something, right? Green beauty, fair enough, but we don’t wander round, all clean and glowy, naked!

And so, after the silk post has sparked a few discussions, online and off – thank you, D.A. of Daily Plate of Crazy, for mentioning it in your thoughtful ecofair fashion feature (absolutely read it)! – I decided to give ecofair fashion a chance here.

I plan to talk about more reliable certificates; about the crunch question “can a veggie wear leather”; about the how-to of conscious fashion shopping and reliable brands; about each common fabric and what we need to know in order to make conscious decisions. There’s so much to talk about!

>>> Well, ladies. What do you want to know about ‘green’ Halloween and ecofair fashion? <<<

Happy Funtober!
xoxo

    • thank you! it means the world to me that my quest has inspired so many bright, wonderful people – and it just properly started in march! WOW. thank you ❤

  1. Hello, we missed you whist you were away 🙂 I’m curious about leather goods – how on earth do we know what we are buying?? xxx

    • oh gosh, it’s really a can of worms with fabrics and fashion. you can stick with certified products, but need to understand the mechanisms and to pay attention in order not to fall for some greenwashed stuff. bit tricky. not unfeasible tho 😉
