An Introduction to This Blog

Hello and welcome! My name is Carys. As of right now I am 20 years old and living in the United Kingdom.

I’ve always been interested in fashion and beauty, and have had a burning desire to explore the world since I was a young child. However, like most people my age I grew up with the unsettling awareness that the planet we all call home is being profoundly affected by the way we live our lives, and that many other humans and animals are suffering for the same reasons. As I got older, I began to look at ways I could change my lifestyle in order to mitigate the impact I personally have on our environment and the other living things we share it with.

I have been vegan for two years and have now made a full commitment to stop purchasing fast fashion items. I hope to transition to a mostly waste-free lifestyle within the next few years, and I am always looking into how I can enjoy travelling in the most environmentally conscious way possible. I’m still learning new things about these topics everyday, and I have some ways to go. I’ve accepted that in modern western society it’s pretty much impossible to be a perfectly ethical consumer, but I truly believe that if a good number of people at least try, really positive changes can be made.

I’ll be using this space to write about things I love; ethical and sustainable fashion and cruelty free and vegan beauty and skincare. I’m also planning to write about vegan food, my travel experiences as a vegan, and other topics pertaining to the subject of living ethically and sustainably.
I really hope that other people can learn from this blog. If you’re reading this, thank you! I’m very excited that you’ll be joining me on this journey.
