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

Best for hair blow dry
Having a good blow-dry can transform your entire look and for this reason, blow-dry bars are heaven sent – speedy, functional and expertly executed.
What I love about DryBy, they offer a speedy makeover with a capsule collection of five blow-dry styles that will take you across the globe – from a classic London look, to beach-ready Rio waves and back to the sleek and chic Upper East Side. I chose the ROME.
Channeling my inner Sophia Loren and my passion for big hair and volume. I thought it was best suited for a Monday – setting a strong tone for the week ahead right?
The gloss-and-go transformation at DryBy make lacklustre hair look fresh again due to the products used Original & Mineral ( O &M ), an indie Australian botanical brand I am now crazy about. The O&M products to “maintain your mane” made easy in even the most hottest summer months of the year while living in a city like London where humidity runs quite high. Oils of Evening Primrose and Macadamia seed combine in a mild moisturizing everyday formula that cleanses the hair and scalp. Antioxidants and amino acids in Banksia Flower protect, helping freshly washed hair stay healthy.
The result? Hair immediately looks refreshed, healthy and shiny. Plus, it’s located on Mortimer Street right next to spin studio mid day hair emergencies.
The 35-minute blow-dry is accompanied by a coffee or sparkling wine so you can disconnect while gloss-and-go transformation make lacklustre hair look fresh out the door quickly.
