“Do your best until you know better. Then when you know better, do better” – Maya Angelou
Thank you for being here!
Here are some things you as a follower should know about how I work.
Welcome to my blog. I’m a former fashion designer & social media expert, turned self-employed online content creator. My mission is to help my followers build the lasting wardrobe they are dreaming of; and thus becoming more conscious consumers, by stepping off the fast fashion train.
Instagram is the place where I show you my own wardrobe gems and sustainable outfits. I am a proud outfit repeater, and I value personal style more than constantly showing off new purchases. In my stories you’ll get a glimpse into my daily life in Denmark too.
I also have a Youtube channel with lots of reference work. There you will find everything from eco-travel guides, personal style tips, minimalist & sustainable lifestyle content, personal vlogs and so much more.
Being a conscious consumer & online content creator.
I wish to contribute to a greener, kinder, more eco-conscious and inclusive fashion & lifestyle industry. That doesn’t mean that I never make mistakes, but I will always pull myself up again and try harder. I am trying to inspire you to challenge your own habits of consumption and change them for the better. I do my best to acknowledge the fact that we all have different starting points and the journey towards a more simple and sustainable lifestyle is very individual.

It may happen that I sometimes create content in collaboration with an external brand or service, but generally I keep these on a low. It will always appear clearly, if something is an advertisement or published in collaboration with someone. I only work with brands I consider relevant for my concept and that I truly like. My personal opinion and integrity is more important for me than brand deals, and I will turn down brands or collaborations that doesn’t live up to my expectations any time – even if it’s a brand I’ve worked with in the past (e.g. if they fail to prove ethical practises, sustainable production, being inclusive etc.).
Through my online platforms I use affiliate links. This means that I receive a small percentage in commission if a purchase is being made. I look at my affiliate programme as a tool – a service where I as a blogger make it more user-friendly for you as my follower, to find the things I show you (or at least similar), but at the same time I want you to understand that I don’t wish to encourage you to overconsume irresponsibly.
I only link to products that I think fit with my overall concept of investing in long-term products, and in that way help my followers lowering their consumption in the long run. I try as far as possible to keep an eye on quality rather than quantity, and I also like to include products that are organic/fairtrade produced or even 2ndhand. However, I often link to products that I do not own or have tested myself, so please be aware that these products meet your own quality requirements. I always do my best to find similar options to what I have in my own wardrobe, or would recommend to a friend. The reason why you may be redirected to items that are not the same as mine, is often because of the availability. In that case, I try to find items that are as close to what I show as possible.
The link can either be written in conjunction with the text in a given blogpost, or I can link to products like I do in my shop, at the bottom of my blogposts or on my Instagram profile. If I’m using links like this I’ll make sure to mark them as adlinks.
