About

From Fast Fashion Addict to Slow Fashion Advocate

Hi, I’m Jen and welcome to The Sustainable Edit. In December 2014 I bought the domain Tartan Brunette to create a basic lifestyle blog since then it has involved into The Sustainable Edit the responsible style and conscious lifestyle blog you see today.

I live in a small town not far from Edinburgh, Scotland with my husband Graeme and our crazy dog Charlie. When I’m not blogging you’ll find me at home pretending to be the perfect housewife (if you ignore the mess), tackling house projects, trying not to kill all the plants (I’m a notorious plant murder) and walking the dog. Over the last couple of years, I have conquered my shopping addiction and finally taken control of my wardrobe. If I managed to curb my out of control fast fashion addiction then you can too. You can read my story of how I went from fast fashion addict to slow fashionista here.

This journey led me towards the caring about the environment and wanting to live a more conscious lifestyle. This blog is a way for me to share everything I discover on my journey towards a more sustainable lifestyle and wardrobe. I’m not perfect and will make mistakes along the way but to me, the most important thing is that I’m trying. Doing one little thing is far better than doing nothing when it comes to sustainable living. Join me on my journey to a simpler life and more sustainable wardrobe.

I’m normally found with a cup of tea in hand so grab yourself a cuppa and have a read.
