Saying Goodbye To Fast Fashion and Shopping More Ethically.

Today I’m here to discuss some thoughts on fast fashion. Now I’m the first to admit I love fashion. Clothes are a huge interest of mine and I love experimenting with different styles and trends. I’ve tried in the past to have a ‘minimalistic’ wardrobe with basic colours etc. But that really does not work for me – at all. I love colour, I love prints and I love having fun with my outfits.
