I’m Yanar and Brighter Shade of Green is my collection of natural and holistic health and beauty, ethical style and green living inspiration, with a sprinkling of fitness and wellness.
I’ve been a health, beauty, wellness and fitness digital writer and editor for over ten years for national press as well running my own digital consultancy. I’m now digital commercial editor at Women’s Health, Runner’s World and Netdoctor at Hearst magazines.
I regularly come across brands and brand owners doing great things and treading more carefully on planet and people. I’ve always been keen to champion these and inspire others with their stories and products.
Outside of work I’m a fitness geek and usually training for a marathon or two and lifting weights at my CrossFit gym. I’m also studying for my yoga teacher training in classic yoga, which has come after ten years of dedicated practice. If I’m not working out, working, cooking or 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.
Thanks and enjoy xx
