Shooting against nature’s best backdrop today. Let’s keep it that way. #worldenvironmentday #beatairpollution
“More than 6 billion people, one-third of them children, regularly breathe air that is so polluted it puts their health and well-being at risk. That’s more than 90 per cent of the world’s population... The good news is that air pollution is preventable. The solutions - laws, standards, policies, programmes, investments and technologies - are widely known and can be implemented. Clean air is a human right. It is everyone’s right and everyone’s responsibility. Each one of us has a role to play in ensuring that the air we breathe does not end up killing us.” - @unenvironment 
I’ll be helping to reduce air pollution by:
- Running the dishwasher and washing machine only when full
- Turning off lights, computers, and electric appliances when not in use
- Choosing environmentally friendly cleaners
- Checking my tyre pressure (which will result in using less energy, being safer on the road and saving $)
- Walking
- Trying to fly less (please!) and carbon offsetting when I do

Landing home this morning and plugging back into the news cycle, which this week has been truly bone-chilling, the words we had in mind when putting together the new issue of @Elleaus (with the enviably self-possessed star Michelle Williams on the cover) came to mind: bravery, resilience and determination. So too did the words of celebrated Matildas captain @samanthakerr20 who contributes this month and says that in order to succeed we women must “empower each other and be kind to each other and help each other. Learn together, instead of working against each other... Stick together and be brave.” The team motto “never say die” is one for us all to get behind.

The ELLE network’s latest member @farrahstorr in conversation with Dior ‘nose’, perfumer François Demachy. How would he embody the ELLE woman in a fragrance? Rose “because a rose is something very universal, like your magazine”, cardamom “a little spicy”, and a woody note on the base.#elleinternational

Every time I travel it seems more apparent that our cities need to be planning for long-term sustainability. Singapore’s supertrees harvest energy from the sun, store rainwater to feed foliage and some even help to cool adjacent buildings. And yes, that’s a restaurant up top, serving ‘nutraceutical’ cuisine. #earthday #everyday #citiesofthefuture

This month’s issue, starring the inimitable @margotrobbie, has some of my favourite-ever fashion, life-altering reads, best beauty tips (like how to finally master the bold), alt fitness hacks (thank you @kayla_itsines) and stress-free advice on money. Pick up a copy this week before the Easter break, plant yourself on the couch, grass or deck chair and press pause. Like the quote on the spine says: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” And if you can pick who said that you’re a true child of the ‘80s!  #MayELLE #holiday #prettyinpink

Way back in 2011 a show called @gameofthrones came along. It fell into the fantasy genre - kings and queens and knights and dragons - so I watched the first episode reluctantly. (Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad had left little room in my life). But before long my boyfriend and I were glued to the screen and questioning the solidity of our relationship if one of us independently skipped ahead. Then came family viewing nights at my sister’s house (addicts by this stage, we’d get it any way we could) and finally my parents got hooked, along with the rest of the world. This record-breaking series had officially changed the tv game and at the centre of it all was the previously little-known English actress @emilia_clarke whose character #DaenerysTargaryen has evolved throughout the seasons to become one of the strongest female heroes you could hope to see on the big or small screen. The real-life woman behind the role is every bit as strong not to mention incredibly grounded, wickedly funny and with big plans that stretch far beyond the eighth and final season of #got (which returns April 14 if you’re wondering why I’m not returning your calls). If you’re already a fan, you’ll be as excited as I am about the new issue with #emiliaclarke on the cover. If you’re not (congrats for reading this far), use this rainy day to catch up - only 67 eps to get through! And then buy @elleaus, on sale Monday. Promise there’s some other great stuff in there, too! #khaleesi #forthethrone #AprilELLE
