samsette Out and about on this sunny Saturday, brunch and bikes and shop hoppin. Not a bad day to turn 29! 😎
And in other news, a project I've been working on for the last few months is finally gaining a little more momentum! It's called The Kind Guide (@thekindguide) and will be an online directory of brands and makers who are working in ethical and sustainable ways around our globe. I am always finding new clothing brands and questioning the things I have in my home, and as a need to keep track of it all I thought I'd make a website to store it all. We'll be launching really soon, and I hope you'll be a little (or a whole lot) inspired to live more consciously through discovering what I've discovered too.

samsette The days are getting colder here in Melbourne, which means more stops for coffee are ever-the-more necessary. And that's okay with me! 2w

  •   georgianlondon @samsette I've been here nearly 12 years! 1w
  •   samsette @georgianlondon ah you're one of those lucky ones with a passport eh? 😎 1w
  •   georgianlondon @samsette Not quite - I came here on an ancestry visa first, then met my Scottish husband here, so home for now is the UK. I've just been browsing your photos and they're so lovely, although they make me homesick!! 1w
  •   samsette @georgianlondon double lucky! It's nice to be back in Oz but I miss Europe almost everyday. 1w

samsette Anyone who knows me well will know I'm never without a denim jacket. I've had 2 in my lifetime; the first for 13 years that I wore til it fell apart, and now this one gifted from a lovely friend a couple of years ago. This past week thousands of people have been taking part in Fashion Revolution Week, remembering the lives lost in the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh in 2013, asking brands to be transparent about how our clothing is made and to be responsible for all parts of the supply chain. We need to slow fashion right down, buy less, make our clothing last, and advocate change for those in seriously unfair situations. We are consuming 400% more clothing today than we did 20 years ago, and as a result we are discarding it faster too, which is frightening and completely unsustainable. The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry after oil and these drawbacks can be tackled with improved business models and engaging our governments, but also through us asking questions and being careful in what we buy into.
I'm ever thankful to @thekeepboutique for opening my eyes to brands who are producing clothes more consciously, minimising harm to the environment and respecting their workers through fair trade practice.
I'm happy to say that majority of my wardrobe is now from trusted sources, but that doesn't mean I've thrown away other pieces that aren't. So @topshop can you please tell me who made my jacket? #whomademyclothes #fashrev

Check out @fash_rev_ausnz & @fash_rev for more info around the movement.

samsette Introducing my Melbourne city steed. It seems I have a knack for acquiring myself a bicycle from lovely locals who generously pass on their old wheels. This is my second city and my second bike, so it's 2 for 2, for those keeping count with me. Despite cycling on the [quieter] roads around London for the last two summers, it was still very much a matter of working up the courage to ride here in Melbourne for the first time. She's a little rickety but she's a beauty, and we've been hanging out daily this week ️ I love so much that I get to live in a city that is so bike friendly *brng brng* #sameecancyclenow 2mon
