THE BLOG-POST:  BY JAMIE MACLEAN

Welcome!  Jamie here, founder of PETAL & POST and author/curator of blogPOST. This is where I bring together a digest of all things green in the beauty, baby and home scene. BlogPOST is where I share my personal style and offer eco-inspiration through recipes, wellbeing, diy projects, contests, industry news, green beauty tips, tricks and more.  I’m an entrepreneur, marketer, traveller, wine lover, foodie, glorified decorator, upcycler, new mommy and clean beauty junkie. I believe that approaching life in a sustainable, health-conscious manner doesn't have to be boring, frumpy and granola-hippy.  The ecological way can be chic, glamorous and spiritually rewarding. I invite you to read on and explore just how with me...
