Stall Feature of the Month!

We caught up with talented Canberra artist Paris Lomé to find out how she gets her creativity flowing and what life is like living in the country’s capital. When she’s not scooping up spoonfuls of hot curry or devouring chocolate, you can usually find this young lass with a paintbrush in hand. Her illustrations are filled with whimsy, movement and life like representations of everything from a cute wedding portrait to a tea cosy covered kettle. We were so baffled to find out during this interview that Paris is only 19!! Seriously, her talent with a brush and sincerity behind her work is just wonderful.

Getting chatty with Erin aka, The Rogue Ginger!

It did not originally start as a blog about reducing plastic and rubbish, but rather a travel blog! My journey began when I found myself watching a documentary called the Clean Bin Project. Once the documentary had finished, I was shocked about the amount of plastic pollution affecting our oceans. I began to question my own indirect contribution to the issues and knew I wanted to reduce my plastic use, but did not know how or where to start. So I typed the question “how can I reduce my plastic,” in to a search engine and up popped Plastic Free July. I did the challenge for one month and saw many benefits beyond my reduction in... read more
