How would describe yourself and your style?
My style is eclectic. I like to mix different styles and suprise myself as much in my wardrobe as in real life. I like to buy high quality clothes but by quality I mean many different things. "Quality" can be found in type of well made fabric but also in story that garment holds. I definitely build sense of self-identity through my clothes and I like if they stimulate me. They need to resonate with me ;)
What's been a goal of yours, whether in life or the last week? Clothing/ lifestyle/ holiday
Wake up with the conviction that I will have a weekend off to finish a book!
What eco brands or products do you love?
I find things on the way. I'm buying by heart if something appeals to me and don't really create lists unless its a necessity. I'm an impulsive shopper but I don't really buy impulsively. I love good denim, life-resistant unbreakable workwear and more theatrical one-of-a-kind pieces which usually you have only one chance to buy- now or never :) I treasure them for years!
What encourages you to be interested in buying or living more consciously or what's holding you back?
Conscious shopping narrows your options down and makes you relate to your possessions more in a fulfilling, constructive way. It has more value for me and for the planet, win-win. I want to be able to live happily and at this stage it won't be possible if I knew I cause harm. Simple logic!
Can you give an example of something you might feel guilty about buying, but you've just got to have it? (because we are all human right)
I don't think guilt is a constructive feeling to feel. I don't really feel guilty for sustainable mistakes I make every day (!) but I feel proud of what I do well and keep on extending the list! Today I've forgotten my reusable mug. Stuff happens but I have it and use it as much as I can till it becomes routine.
What's the best part of sustainable or mindful living and where do you go to for inspiration?
Research. I can't hold myself from looking for good changes, new business models, materials, technical improvements. It's extremely fascinating what is happening at the moment. World is looking for solutions and we are getting there. I love to watch this happening and participate in this move.
Do you have your own website or instagram you'd like to share and tell us a bit about? Or a favourite one you think needs to be shared!

What's on your playlist for dancing, thinking or being energised?
When it comes to self-sustainability answer is: Walking. I walk a lot and it helps me to organise my thoughts. 10 miles after work is not a problem.
