Ethical is the New Black | Sustainable Fashion

{picture from Google}

While creeping on Instagram a little while back, I came across an Instagram post (which I somehow can’t find anymore) of my favorite Dutch online travel agency Vakantie Discounter, in which they asked people to answer the following question:

“If you had to choose between never travelling again or never shopping again, what would you pick?”

For me the answer is pretty obvious. I mean frack clothes then, right?! But that’s not really the point of me mentioning this. The point is that this question really made me think a lot more about the impact of the travel and fashion industry on the environment. Obviously I don’t want to stop travelling, so maybe I should think about living more sustainably when it comes to fashion?

We already do some things in our household to live a more sustainable lifestyle, like:

Month in Review | January 2018

I Listened To…

A Court of Thorns and Roses part 1 & 2 by Sarah J. Maas  ★★★★☆

It had been a quite while since I last listened to an audiobook and after reading listening to ACOTAR I realized why: I just hadn’t found the right book(s)! I had ACOTAR on my Storytel bookshelf for a while and out of sheer desperation for a new book to lose myself in, I just put it on. And I’m glad I did, because ACOTAR is one of those series that will be one of my favorites for the rest of my life. The last two series that ignited the fangirl in me that much were Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, so you can imagine how great it was to lose myself in another series like that again!

Speaking of audiobooks: I sometimes catch myself saying that I’m reading a book, in stead of listening to it (my boyfriend likes to correct me on that one!). I also saw an interesting poll about it on Goodreads. But for me, reading a book and listening to the audiobook are the same thing! Because whether I am reading or listening to a book, I enjoy it just as much. A big bonus for me is that I sometimes have a problem with winding down when I know there’s dishes waiting for me in the kitchen or when there’s laundry to be done -adulting sucks sometimes!-. And now I can enjoy a book while doing those tedious things 🙂 I’ve said this (MANY times) before, but audiobooks are such an enrichment to my life! I can definitely recommend Storytel if you’re looking for an audiobook provider other than Audible.

Happy New Year, guys! I don’t know how it is for you, but for me a new year means a clean slate. Time to set new goals and work towards becoming the happiest version of yourself! Big bonus for the organization geeks like me: January 1st of 2018 is on A MONDAY! And we all know that Monday is the best day of the week to start a new habit, amiright?!

Speaking of a clean slate, you might have noticed that the blog has undergone a little make-over: a new name and a new look. For a while I’ve felt like I couldn’t really identify with The Little Cinephile anymore. Not because I stopped loving watching movies and series (that will never happen!), but because last year my interests have shifted more towards travel and food. So I wanted a name that wouldn’t restrict me too much in terms of blog content and that encompasses me as a person. So I came up with The Little Wanderer! “Wanderer” is exactly how I would describe myself in one word. Not only because I am looking for my place in this world, but also because I love to explore new places and things. I am very happy with this change, I hope you like it too!

That being said, let’s get into my goals for 2018!
