hi ! i’m nati, an award-nominated blogger writing about slow fashion + slow living.

nice to ( digitally ) meet you !

a bit about me

I’m a /creative /minimalist /feminist /fashion-lover /advocate for everything slow living. I’m also a huge fan of dogs and I can’t resist an oat milk latte.

I’m also currently in my third and final year of studying a BA in theatre at university in Birmingham.

Fashion has always been an outlet for me, whether it’s expressing myself, experimenting creatively or being inspired by the styles and stories of passers-by. On the other hand, my love for slow living is the result of years of mental health issues; as I can’t make my mind calm the heck down, I find that a slow lifestyle helps me to keep everything around me on track.

I’m currently based in Birmingham, UK, with plans to move to a new city this summer!

a bit about what i do

I’m an award-nominated blogger and freelance digital marketer.

… as a blogger

Welcome to my blog, à la slowed ! I see it as the chilled out, more mindful version of dressing and living à la mode.

Here you’ll find content discussing slow fashion - the capsule wardrobe, shopping mindfully, shopping independent - and slow living - avoiding overwhelm, making the most out of every day moments, surrounding yourself with good vibes only.

I’ve previously worked with a range of brands I admire, collaborating on content exploring our shared ethos and styles, from eco-conscious printmaker Desenio to the number one marketplace supporting independent makers, Etsy.

à la slowed is a space for all things style, simplicity and reminders that you deserve to take time for yourself.

… as a freelance digital marketer

Alongside running my own little space on the internet, I help fellow bloggers and small business owners with everything digital marketing, whether they’re just starting out or want to take their business to the next level. Sound like your kind of thing? Find out more here!
