A Day in Brighton!

31 Jul 2014

London is one of my top favorite places ever! But I always wanted to travel to some of the other parts of England as well, the more quiet and relaxed areas because too much city gets annoying sometimes. Zoe, better known as Zoella in youtube and also in her blog, she made a post a while back about her visit to Brighton and the pictures were amazingly beautiful! Since then my dream was to go to Brighton. Plus I've never been to a beach where the sand were rocks instead...

We arrived there and it was very hot! there was lots and lots of people. We visited only a small part of Brighton since we kind of arrived a bit late and we were hungry, so we stopped in a Brazilian restaurant (which was SO DELISH, I drank guarana and finally ate some brown feiajo with picanha). It took like two hours of our time in the restaurant, or maybe more... Then we walked towards the pier and basically stayed there for like three hours and then had to come back.








I couldn't take pictures of the beach properly because there were so many people since it was a saturday and my sister really really wanted to go to the pier so we walked there right away. Also, there was a "mermaid" parade which made the area even more crowded, but it was beautiful! There were even doggies with costumes :)

Oh, and we also found Darth Vader (he really must not have any care for warm weather) 




The parade was so full of happiness. I really wanted to join them, which we did at one time to walk towards the pier -.- 

The games at the pier were so much fun. I thought it was gonna be a huge line due to the incredible amount of people but it was actually very decent. The maximum we had to wait was like 7 min. I do not recommend "Turbo" the roller coaster though because it hurts your neck so bad. I LOVE roller coasters but that one in specific I didn't enjoy it whatsoever. 

I would love to go back to Brighton and explore more because the small portion I saw, it was gorgeous!

As I always come across, or at least try to show, that fashion has indeed a great impact on society. The force it has upon us is immense and can do so much good as well it can do so many bad consequences. The excess of consumption will forever be present but the key concept that we all must focus on is eco-friendly and sustainability. Fashion would not cease to exist because we need clothes for our daily basis (I hope we all agree on this) so why not produce it in a way that instead of causing so many damages it would not only benefit the consumers but it would benefit all sectors of this industry, right from the beginning. 

When I decided that I wanted to spent my entire life in the fashion industry, I wasn't very sure of what I wanted to do with it, I just knew I wanted to have a place within. But now, after a year of college and some courses I've taken so far, I realized that sustainability is a MUST process that should be incorporated. We all need to support companies that are involved in such practices and that carry on an ethical principle of healthy manufacturings so we can spread the word and make people aware of how great things can sustainability bring.  

Thanks to Wowcracy I came across a project called "Ethical luxury meets progressive philantrophy" by Eden Diodati. I completely fell in love with their collection. I have a huuuuge interest in all astronomical things and the first thing I noticed was that aura of stars and galaxies, it was beauuutiful. The cuts and shapes, the drape of their dresses reminded me as well of a roman, greek style which I always have been fascinated about. There is also some other dresses that are one color only, for those who prefer a more simple look. What is a dress without accessories? Nothing. But hold on!! Eden Diodati ALSO offers high-end jewelry products! Couldn't it get more better than this?? In fact, yes, it can. 

Eden Diodati is a fashion brand that is hugellyyyyyy involved in sustainability and ethical impacts. So you don't get only magnificent, highly manufactured products but as well you, as a costumer, are being part of a bigger scale by influencing the good on others. Damn! call it good will and generous human being you! 

10% from your purchase goes as a donation to Medicins sans frontieres and they also help people with mental and physical disabilities. Eden Diodati its been recognized by the Ethical Fashion Forum which is the industry's body for sustainable fashion. So its no joke, its no greenwashing, its the real deal ma friends. 





You see how fancy they are? I wanna buy them all if I could!

The fabrics you see here are eco fabrics which are GOTS certified silks that are manufactured by an amazing team with different backgrounds. Fun fact? Some of the manufacturers are women who survived the Rwandan genocide.

And here is a trailer of their collection. Enjoy!
