Eco Fashion: Upcycled Jeans Backpack DIY

Monday, 10 August 2015

Diy denim backpack from old jeans

Waste is one of the most damaging side effect of fast fashion, it fills up land, uses us our limited fossil fuels and creates a massive amount of pollution. Constantly buying and throwing out (or shoving stuff to the back of the closet) not only damages the environment but also our bank balances and clutters up our homes. I've decided to start a series of DIYs that will hopefully inspire you to create less waste and up-cycle your old, unwanted clothes into something new that you will get loads more use out them!
 Jeans are one of the most popular items of clothing, most of us have a pair (or two, or three) and we go through several in our lives. However that means ALOT gets thrown out which is a shame, denim is a very durable and versatile fabric that never goes out of fashion! Here I will show you how I gave an old pair of jeans and some scrap fabric new life by making a denim and faux leather backpack!

The True Cost

Monday, 27 July 2015

During my research into minimalist fashion I was recommended a new documentary called 'The True Cost' that investigates the impact that fast fashion is having on the planet. I knew it would show me the bad side of the fashion industry and I know people work long hours in factories to earn next to nothing but I had no idea how bad the situation was. I also didn't anticipate how much of an impact it would have on me and how I view the fashion industry.

Simplistically Saved: Cheap alternative to perfume

Wednesday, 10 June 2015

A gorgeous perfume sure feels luxurious and an evening outfit isn't complete without a few spritz of your favourite scent. However perfumes are generally expensive, I won't use my favourite one everyday (Alien by Thierry Mugler) as I simply can't afford to! I hate body sprays and these spray on deodorants that you see people drown themselves in mid day as I find the scent doesn't last. This is why I have a new found love for body mists!
