I am absolutely obsessed with all things carnival. So much so, I can't even remember a year where booking Notting Hill Carnival off work took precedence even over booking Christmas off.
I've always been known as the glitter queen to my friends, dousing everyone in glitter and sparkle, even random revellers would ask who did our glitter or where we got it from.
I don't think it even crossed my mind that the glitter we were using was a micro plastic. Not until the winter of 2018/2019. I can assure you, once you realise the damage it is doing to our environment, that thought will forever haunt you. The absolute joy taken in showering after a festival or carnival, with plastic glitter being washed away into the water systems... then what?
So I began on my eco glitter research journey. A few months later, Luminosity Glitter was born.
I pride myself on my special glitter blends and hope to educate people that there are actually eco friendly alternatives with just as much sparkle as traditional plastic glitter.
My favourite blend for carnival?
