I’m Yanar and Brighter Shade of Green is my collection of natural beauty, holistic health, ethical style and green living inspiration with a sideline in fitness and wellness.
I’m a health, wellness and fitness web editor and throughout my editorial career I’ve come across brands and people doing great things, treading more carefully on the planet and putting people and environment first so I’ve always been keen to champion these.
I’m also a fitness geek and usually training for a marathon or two or lifting weights at my Crossfit gym and now, after ten years of dedicated practise, I’m also studying for my yoga teacher training in classic, hatha yoga. If I’m not working out, working (or cooking and eating!) you’ll find me rifling through secondhand stores or eBay in search for a vintage gem.
My editorial and professional work is at yanaralkayat.com. I don’t take sponsored posts so everything I talk about here is because I genuinely think it’s worth it and great.
Thanks and enjoy xx
