In the beginning…
Back when I started to create this blog, my sole purpose was to blog about fashion and have a space to offer my services plus share my thoughts about different topics. However, it started to occur to me that there are so many fashion websites out there, with more than enough bloggers, doing their bit to promote fashion and all that comes with it.
It left me with an uneasy feeling, with the message that I was somehow contributing to fast fashion and the materialistic view-point that we need to buy things to make us happy.
After weeks of soul-searching and really questioning who I am, what is this about, what message am I trying to convey to the person (yes, you), that I want to share this with, things started to evolve into a much deeper perspective.
I had decided at the beginning of this journey, that I would, as much as possible, shop for items in second hand stores, as this is one of my favourite past-times. I buy a lot of pre-loved clothes and have styled others by purchasing these items. You know, it’s about reusing what is already out there. Once I started down this path, it opened up a whole Pandora’s box of sustainability and what it means to our planet. I couldn’t only talk about style and fashion. Life and the world we live in, has so many other important issues to discuss and talk about.
It’s a quest
Pursuing Kindness, has evolved into what I would like to call a ‘one-stop wellbeing spot’, where I will share with you, all things kind, thoughtful and mindful. This encapsulates, fashion, food and self-care at the core. I am a huge believer in looking at our lives holistically. The question is, what can we do as a community, that will make us feel good inside and out, so that we can be present and show up for those around us.
As I am a qualified Meditation Teacher, I am on a mission to bring as much space into people’s hearts (minds) as I can. I am also in the process of creating small, intimate retreats in different locations, that are affordable and enriching. Plus an online meditation course. Watch this space!
I really hope you enjoy reading my blog and join me for the ride. Please feel free to get in touch with me or leave a comment, I would love to hear from you.
