As 2016 nears it’s end, we’re all reflecting on our year. What did we learn? How did we grow? What were some highlights? Over here on my corner of the Internet, I’m also looking back. The Curious Button was born about a year ago, just after the start of 2016, and a lot has happened since then. It’s been amazing to hear from everyone also embarking on a similar journey, no matter how far along they are. I’ve also learned a lot about what you love to read or hear about, and this post here is my summary.
Here are the posts you all loved most:
To be honest, I’m not surprised that this was the #1 blog post on TCB this year! We can talk about ethical fashion all we want, but if we don’t know where to shop, we can’t really “walk the walk” and support what we would like to support. Since writing this post, I’ve certainly expanded my list of ethical fashion brands, and new ones just keep popping up! I get a funny feeling that 10 more modern, ethical brands will be coming your way soon… 😉
This was a review of a book written by Marie Kondo about not just organizing, but tidying up in a way that means you really never have to organize again! Though it definitely needs to be taken with a grain of salt, I wrote this review so you could gauge whether or not you think the Kon-Mari Method would be helpful for you before reading the book yourself. And even if you don’t embrace the whole thing, there’s definitely a thing or two that everyone can take from it!
Another review, this time of Minimalism, a documentary that acts as a wonderful introduction to the concept of minimalism and how different people embrace it in their own way, and for their own reasons. The best part is, it’s now available on Netflix!
It seems like you all really enjoy these reviews, book or movie, so that is definitely something I would love to do more of for all of you next year!
This post was one of my first steps in the transition from ethical, sustainable and slow fashion blogging to a more general conscious lifestyle approach, so I can share other methods and tips that will help you transition not only your closet, but the rest of your life to a more ethical, sustainable and overall conscious way of living. I’m glad you guys enjoyed this one, because I’ve got some more lifestyle topics up my sleeve for next year!
Ah, yes, everyone wants to avoid the common mistakes for everything, and embarking on a slow fashion journey is no exception! But on top of knowing the mistakes, it’s also important to know how to fix and overcome these challenges. Hence, this final post that covers both for you!
