WOW 5 years Senorita AweSUMO has been an entity. All of the loves to those who continue to support me and those new to the idea of zerowaste who are just starting their journey. The past 10 months have been a joy to be full time study, work and non profit projects, It has been a big fear to step into owning my future as I do now. I am only limited by my imagination and well, its a pretty interesting place in there!!
I never really understood what success looked like, you know when you go to those bank seminars and they ask you what your idea of success is, I couldn't answer that other than financial freedom, that dream continues, but it was also because I didn't know it was actually a feeling not this unobtainable ideal I couldn't comprehend. It feels nice though, its a good feeling, I like it and will happily sit with it for a bit!!
breathe it in, revel in it, roll around and soak in the earthy dew.
breathe, r e l a x.
ahhhh what a comfortable spot, I think i'll just stay here and grow abundance!!
But I do feel like things are just beginning again, I mean look at this pretty new LOGO!!
With huge thanks to Micheal Smith who created this new logo as a 2nd year project. It was exactly what I asked for clean crisp lines. I love that the O is so ROUND and the S is so OPEN! I like its simplicity and strength.
You can find him at firstname.lastname@example.org if your interested in his work.
As a group project they also had to make an advert for my brand, which was a pretty fun project to work with them on. It was a great experience for model Stella Cooper from Aart Model Management and myself as a designer to learn alongside them during shooting. They did a great job of an ambitious project to show the LOVE of nature and the kaitiakitanga that is carried with each piece of clothing that Senorita AweSUMO creates.
There was also a photo shoot that each student had to develop from different pieces of Senorita AweSUMO, shot at the same location as the video in Leith Valley.
But the purpose here is to celebrate 5 years of continued growth and give you the opportunity to embrace a zerowaste lifestyle too, I want to help you on that journey and what better way than equipping you with some tools to become more zerowaste in your lifestyle.
So I am giving away a plastic free bundle of goodies
x1 zerowaste cutlery tote
x1 set of assorted beeswax wraps
x1 set of produce bags
all in a wonderful tote bag for your zerowaste shopping outings. These are all lovingly hand made by me.
To win you need to like my facebook page, or follow me on instagram plus leave me a comment on this blog to be in the draw. I want to know how you are challenging yourself this year with reducing your plastic consumption? It could be something as simple as refusing plastic bags when shopping or saying "no straw please" when out at a cafe. Which is hard when you're not exactly expecting that straw and 'oh fuck' there it is hand delivered to your table, I usually take the opportunity to educate the wait staff and ask if they've thought about going straw free to save themselves some money. The more we do it as consumers the more business take notice of what we want.
