I was lucky enough to be asked by the original eco-designer, Kelly LaPlante, if I would guest edit the “On the Boards” section of Standard magazine’s “Summer Abroad” Issue. Knowing that I’m a frequent and obsessive traveller, Kelly thought I’d be perfect to choose chic and sustainable decor and fashioney items for the front of the magazine. I was happy to oblige.
I’ve been covering ethical travel for Martha Stewart’s Whole Living magazine, and here are the first fruits of my (and my editor’s) labor! Fun, short piece on travel that combines the best of yoga with other pursuits, like horseback riding, climbing and surfing. Check it out in the September, 2011 edition of the magazine, available now!
I love this new competition by Yoxi, a cool nonprofit that aims to find the “next social media rockstars” – their latest topic to tackle takes a look at the fashion industry. I helped them out a bit with my expertise and they were kind enough to feature me on the page for the competition:
The Yoxi “Trim the Waste of Fashion” Competition featured me as an expert Q&A.
Today I handed in my thesis! Needless to say I’m exhausted, but happy, and very, very proud. It came it at just over 34,000 words, and is a combination of memoir, science writing, essay and the chapter of the book project I’ve been working on, called Sense(Less).
And now I just wait until my thesis meeting in a few short weeks, and hopefully, graduation in October! (In celebration, I wore the same skirt that I wore to my first day of classes, it’s a full-length beauty of a skirt from Anthropologie that I’ll have forever!)
