Hello and welcome to my alternative and sustainable lifestyle blog!
This blog originates from a need to change, by taking some concrete steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
I am R., a 27-year-old Italian girl working in dynamic Paris, France, in an international agency.
Although I like my full-time job from a professional point of view, I realize that it does not make me happy anymore from a personal point of view. Five days a week, like many others, I leave early in the morning for work, spend almost one hour squeezed in the characteristic yet over-crowded Parisian metro, then spend the whole day sitting at a desk into a tall and grey building, surrounded by likewise tall and grey buildings.
More and more, I realize that my lifestyle does not correspond to ME and that, if I want to see changes, I need to take some concrete steps towards them.
It is not always simple to act in a sustainable way, above all when you work full-time, but one thing is sure: I will do my best to face this green, exciting challenge!
So, as you can see, this blog is NOT about a successful story of change and fulfillment. It is more about a work-in-progress, a step-by-step journey towards the life I have always wanted: happy, sustainable, resilient. A life where manual savoir-faire, contact with nature, personal development and time for ourselves and our loved ones may be seen as priorities and values again. A life that will contribute to build a more sustainable society.
With this ultimate goal in mind, I will share with you adventures and misadventures of my journey, tips and ideas on a range of green passions cultivated next to my full-time job: from urban gardening to yoga, from DIY and upcycling projects to travel and inspiration.
