Hey there! I'm Annie...

I am based in Toronto, Canada, and started blogging in 2015 to share my thoughts on fashion, film, and literature. Shortly after, I watched The True Cost documentary about the fashion industry's destructive impact on people and the planet, which started my path to shopping ethically and living sustainably. Now I embrace slow fashion and buy second-hand whenever possible.

While I do my best to live an eco-friendly lifestyle, I don't label myself as perfectly zero waste. Society doesn't set us up for success in sustainability, especially in the city, but things are improving. Only a few years ago, my interests in ethical fashion, clean beauty, and mindful consumption were considered niche, but recently they've become more mainstream. My research and personal practices are converted into easy action steps for readers to take.

I am a published fiction writer, dabble in travel photography, and have a liberal arts background. For over twelve years, I've been on a spiritual journey, studying Kabbalah and other nonreligious spiritual wisdom. In 2018, I got certified as an intuitive healer to help others heal self-limiting beliefs and long-standing physical and emotional issues.

My goal here on Zanniee.com is to provide practical solutions, whether it’s something as simple as recommending the perfect non-toxic lipstick to something deeper by sharing spiritual tools and wisdom. If you have a question or want to say hi, feel free to get in touch.
