Hello!! My name is Alexis and I am the founder & creator of Hello Starling. I started Hello Starling as a creative outlet for myself and as a platform to share my experiences in the hopes to inspire others to make positive changes in their own lives. Through my experiences, I have learned how significant the relationship is between humans, the environment and animals and how interconnected they all are. All are equally important and dependent on the others. My goal is to have a site with meaningful and inspiring content that I am passionate about.
Why Hello Starling?! To me, starlings are highly intelligent, resourceful, aware, beautiful, adaptable, social and tenacious all qualities that I find fascinating. And by saying "hello" to another you actively reaching out and connecting, which is the purpose for creating this website.
My site is divided into 3 main focuses; Travel, Tried & Tested, and Lifestyle. My husband Craig and I are both passionate about exploring the world. Together we have travelled to over 15 countries in the last 5 years. The travel page is dedicated to the day trippers, overnighters, & jet setting places we go & the things we do a as a couple with an attention to making ethical choices while travelling. The tried & tested page is dedicated to reviewing different restaurants, recipes, make-up & beauty products, household products, and clothing brands I have tried & tested. I have made a conscious effort to choose places, products and brands that align with my philosophies of; reduced environmental impact and compassion & care for all of earths inhabitants. The lifestyle page is a collection of my personal narratives that depict who I am and what I am passionate about as well as my inspirations, influences, relationships, and connections that have shaped the person I am today.
Hello Starling is my authentic self, my own lived experience. All opinions and content are my own.
