When I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph for Matahari Collective I was over the moon. I only work with sustainable ethical brands and this truly is one of my favourites.


Heres a little from the owner of this brilliant online store:

“Our pieces are either handmade by us in the UK, sourced locally, like our vintage collection, or ethically sourced. Our pieces are not massed produced, we only work with small family run businesses, and they supply us with the stock that they produce, meaning each time we receive a new collection, its a complete surprise and often pieces are limited edition. As fast fashion is damaging our planet and is one of the highest contributors to global warming , we feel its so important to shop sustainably, particular by buying vintage or second hand! We absolutely love sourcing vintage gems and sharing them with you all. Pre-loved clothing is the best way to buy clothing, in a world where we are overpowered by fast fashion. All of our vintage is handpicked by us locally.”

About Me

Hi! I am Beth Johnstone, a travel journalist and photographer.

I began travelling in 2014 with what I thought would be a short holiday. I’ve now been travelling around the world full time for five years, taking photographs, writing about the places I’ve been and immersing myself in new cultures.

I am passionate about capturing the whole experience not just with images, but with words too. My blog is a positive place where I welcome readers to learn about the best places to stay, along with tips and advice on long term travel.
