About the blog


What type of blog is this, anyway?
Primarily fashion, but I'm also interested in interior design, product design, photography and art of any kind. Let's just say it's a fashion&lifestyle blog, with a personal twist from time to time.

Why Slow Catharsis?

I was in my senior year of high school and preparing for the Baccalaureate, so I had to give up 'real blogging', which I did on a shared blog with my best friend. But  my mind started feeling cluttered, and thirsty for things I'd been loving and doing for years, namely fashion. So I created a tumblr, meant to help realize a catharsis for me, perhaps in a less dramatic and literal way. The initial purpose was to 'clean out' my mind, slowly chipping away at the mess as I was pressed for time, but slowcleanout isn't exactly mellodic, now is it? 

Nowadays, this name has become a symbol of what I think is the process of me really becoming me, emerging from my teenage years with a clearer mind. I would love it if blogging became my livelihood one day, but now and in the near future, it is merely a way for me to clean out my mind by expressing thoughts and ideas related to things I am passionate about.
