Anonymous asked: Would you call yourself hypocritical? You're 'vegan' but eat fish, you are 'minimalist' but are quoted saying that truthfully you crave a large wardrobe, you are 'pro quality' yet buy Topshop jewellery, you say that you feel calmer away from the internet and that you hate people stealing your images etc, but post images on so many public domains- be it instagram, twitter, facebook, tumblr, pintrest etc. This isn't a personal attack I assure you, and I adore your blog but it does raise questions.
Not sure why I am even answering, guess because you asked it nicely
on being a minimalist:
-Never have dared to call myself a minimalist because I understand what it is; I am not there yet. Though I have always had an aversion against excessiveness and decadence.
on eating almost vegan
-I eat vegan because of health benefits and environmental reasons. I am not going against my principles when eating fish. I have a kid who needs to grow, am still fairly new to eating vegan, there isn’t always a large variety of fruits and veggies where I live, specially in winter. I’d rather eat fish with my family a few times a month than take supplements (which are either not vegan or chemical). It is a carefully made decision.
a larger wardrobe
-I don’t recall saying I crave a larger wardrobe! Could you tell me where that quote is? It can’t be right, in fact I’ve been minimizing it even more. I do talk a lot about clothes and fashion because I really appreciate design and craftsmanship. Though when it comes to actually buying something, I don’t really feel the need to do so, and if I do I contemplate for days, weeks, months.
about the topshop jewelry
- Sometimes I also do something I regret, like caving in and buying the topshop jewelry, I wrote my thoughts about it in the post on my blog.
calm away from the internet
-When I first started blogging I didn’t even think of this as something that was possible. I had 0 readers, let alone considering the possibility that people would want to steal my images. Maybe some of you might have noticed it, but I have been updating a lot less, this goes for my blog and social media channels. Because of a lot of incidents(shady online stores selling fake designer bags and posting my images in their shops, people having fake accounts pretending to be me, people posting my instagram and Facebook pictures + caption to their own feed pretending they took it, Nelly.com producing a DIY, and some more BS) I’m trying to look for a good balance, for now I stopped sharing a lot of things from my life.
I’m not hypocritical! :) I’m only human and make mistakes too! It would be hypocritical to pretend to be perfect.
