What is the future of fashion? We will buy less and better quality

Aggressive fashion - Those were the words Mary Sue used to describe her vision for the Ashbury Skies website. My heart started beating and shouting YES! Here is the thing- safe, tasteful, fashion is beautiful and it serves a roll in a complete wardrobe. But it’s not what makes your heart beat. Bold, standout fashion- that gets us excited. We had both worked for major retailers and have made lasting connections that helped us make our vision a reality- a collection that keeps fashion fun. If you’d like safe & practical, go to a department store or some other mega online retailer. If you want to smile every time you open your closet doors, then AshburySkies is your new favorite spot online.

In fact, the problem is not that fashion is becoming fast, but that there are many unethical practices involved.

Ways To Put A Stop To Boredom And Keep Your Mind Active

Keeping your mind active and avoiding boredom stops you from sitting and stagnating. Boredom can kill creativity and drive, so it's best to avoid situations whereby you have nothing to do. Quite simply, to keep your mind active, you should look for activities you enjoy. If you're often bored on your train journey home, then think about downloading some stimulating apps or games onto your phone. If this doesn't appeal to you, then consider keeping a book of word searches or Sudoku puzzles to complete. Avoiding boredom isn't easy if you've grown accustomed to it, so shake things up now and begin combating boredom and periods of inactivity, both mental and physical ones.
