On Slowing Down
Embracing a slower pace in life does not mean forgoing all of life’s little luxuries. It’s as much a state of mind as it is a way of life. These two intersect where your attitude infects all areas of your life and you can’t help but make choices that align with your slower state.
For Kaitie, turning down the slow path led her to a new business venture, The Slow Mode, where she is able to “hand select unique fashion, home and beauty brands with thoughtful detail all made ‘slowly’ with meaning and purpose.”
On a personal level, Kaitie explains what slowing down means to her.
“It means turning inwards, being truly present, non-judgmental and allowing space in your everyday for nature, peace and clarity.”
This concept of slowing down is integral to not only Kaitie’s personal life, but her business model. The Slow Mode’s range of boho clothing, hand woven baskets, bags, jewellery and skin care products won’t just slow you down, they’ll stop you in your tracks.
“It’s absolutely core to what The Slow Mode stands for. Beautiful fashion, home and beauty products made slowly by artisans around the globe, with thoughtful and meaningful details. I look for those little ‘extras’ handmade finishes and touches that tells a unique story for our customers. They want a deeper connection to the designs and designers behind the brands, not a fast fashion impulse buy.”
