This blog is a space for me to discuss the things I believe are important, such as self-care, ethical consumerism, and my experiences navigating this society as a woman of East Asian descent. My posts range from updates on my attempts to cultivate an ethical wardrobe to deeply personal essays about my mental health. I intend to create a space of openness and understanding; hopefully that space also ends up being inspirational in some way.
Currently I’m on a journey toward a low/zero-waste lifestyle. My post about my first official venture into zero/low-waste living can be found here, with updates here (part 1), here (part 2), and here (part 3, to come).
