Fashion, Journal, Lifestyle, Uncategorized

8x6a6617 copyIt can be hard to find a 2-1 moisturiser gentle enough for all skin types, especially in the depths of winter as cold air strips us of essential moisture and nutrients.

HOUSE OF LIFE ‘N31 Face Repair Cream’  is just that. A ground breaking organic skincare solution with cosmeceuticals efficiency that includes natural healing ingredients and blend with soothing oil blends are suitable for vegetarians to help heal and rejuvenate the skin.

A great 2-1 step process, made easy.   I used it every morning and night and especially on long-haul flights travelling on business with @Kleen_app to smooth and brighten your complexion.

What I love most HOUSE OF LIFE ‘N31 Face Repair Cream’ naturally-sourced range strengthens the surface and penetrate deep into the epidermal layers to even skin tone and smooth texture. And above all, solves anti-aging  concerns while protecting skin from harmful UV & IR light.

 

NEW-SEASON WARDROBING: Recycling Work-Wear

First week back at KLEEN HQ in 2019!

I’ve decided to unleash my wild side in wearing snake-print silk blouse by Equipment that I bought years ago.  Yes. That’s right, I’ve recycled that same look time and time again.

Being in clean tech, I also do apply ways to reduce waste by recycling my work wear by  “redress it – don’t bit it” approach. The fashion industry has become the 2nd largest most polluting industry after the oil industry, with 87% of fashion landfilled or incinerated every year, according to the Copenhagen Fashion Summit.

My passion to reduce the fashion industry’s impact on the planet really just can start in your closet ♻️ #ecowarrior

Fashion, Uncategorized
I was thrilled to be invited front row to VIN + OMI Present Spring-Summer 2019 Collection.  This designer takes sustainability and becoming socially responsible to new heights.
Thursday’s event, featuring only clothes crafted from eco-sustainable textiles and processes, was their largest. Held on the Grand Terrace of St Pancras International to mark the re-opening of its public water fountain, aimed at cutting the use of plastic bottles, the designers arrived on a Routemaster party bus with their models – including Jo Wood – wearing ruffled and embellished neon babydoll dresses, multi-layered latex jackets, overalls and wide-legged trousers and sack-like sustainable creations. Messages appeared on T-shirts saying “Everything is everyone”, “Queen Biodegrade”

VIN + OMI includes new plant based fabrics. These are grown in the fields surrounding our Cotswolds studio. We are initially developing ways of using plants that grow wild and are readily available and can be grown anywhere.  For our SS19 collection we are introducing a nettle fabric that has a raw unfinished feel and a more woven hybrid fabric of nettle, cow parsley, rosebay wil-low herb and flax. You’ll also see our established 4GANIC – a nettle based fabric and Flaxley – a hybrid flax and cow parsley textile.

Organic latex is from our plantation in Malaysia where we carefully look after the workers and their families and ensure the plantation has minimum negative impact on the environment and a positive effect on the villagers.  Our shoes this season are a mash up of previous seasons and shoes destined for landfill. We be-lieve with a bit of a twist, recycling can become fresh.
