If you are wondering what to do for the planet but feel helpless, support the Teal project.

As much as I agree that we need to change our behavior when it comes to the way we consume, travel and live, I don’t like how often environmental activism turns into something aggressive that repels people.

Is This The Perfect Denim Skirt For Spring?

Why do I believe that a denim skirt is perfect for this spring? Because it’s practical, easy to wear and depending on the way you dress it up, you can wear it both on Casual Friday or over the weekend.

Life Is What Happens To You While You’re Busy Making Other Plans

CATEGORY: FASHION

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”

I got so busy with planning, organizing and stressing about it, that I forgot to enjoy the process. When Alex’s father passed away, I couldn’t stop thinking about life. How short and impermanent it is. And we forget to enjoy every moment. We stress about where we want to be, who we want to become and what we want to have, that life runs through our fingers and when we wake up, it’s late. Life is all about memories. Now, when I start stressing about something, I ask myself: “Am I going to think about it when I am dying?” And 100% of the time the answer is NO! I will not think about work deadlines and power games. In the last seconds, before I die, I will think about my family and the love I felt towards those who matter. SO as much somber as it may seem, it’s an exercise that helps me to keep perspective.
