Governments… Kathleen but most people call me Kat!

Dwellings… I was born in Montreal, lived in the Netherlands (Europe) and now live in the United States.

The fam… I’m the baby of a family of 4 children, the only girl! I have 11 nieces and nephews that I love to pieces! They’re my obsession.

Favorite color… Red honey! Red!!! The color of passion! Yellow is a close contender though!

Quotes to live by… “I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will.” – Edward Everett Hale

“Those who bring sunshine into the life of others cannot keep it from themselves.” – J.M. Barriemary_oliver_quoteBlogging… Do it! If you have something to share don’t keep it to yourself! That would be really selfish! Wink, wink!

To be happy… Live out your purpose unapologetically. You are unique and that’s your gift to the world.

Pet peeves… Judgmental people!

Style philosophy… Style is Queen but fit is King! Don’t follow trends, dress to compliment your body and werk it!

On beauty… Make sure you have a kind heart and brains to go along with it! Nothing is uglier than a beautiful person with a nasty attitude!

Retail therapy… If you buy something you actually don’t need, don’t be too proud to return it to the store once you get back to your senses.

Beauty trails… I spend too much time at Sephora. My aisles of choice: Bite, CoverFX, Tarte and Clarisonic.

The perfect day… My ENTIRE family in one place, just chillin’! That’s it!

Conscious & Chic… Yep! It’s a lifestyle which stands for exactly what it says. That’s it! [START HERE]

Time flies…  I can’t believe I started blogging about sustainable fashion in 2009 (link to my humble blogspot blog) before there was anything sustainable to blog about. I just knew in my heart of hearts that something had to change and am so happy to see how far we’ve come!

Causes… Women and girls’ issues, labor trafficking and Haiti amongst others are all near and dear to my heart!

Shopping… When you know where to go it’s easy to be Conscious & Chic! But you have to know where to go! [WHERE TO SHOP]
