Hi! I’m Amanda R. Martinez, a recovered corporate workaholic, turned curious backpacker, turned entrepreneur who has spent the last decade learning from & empowering fearless entrepreneurs. 

It took going through daily anxiety attacks & health issues to come to the realization that something had to change for me. The non-stop hustle, stress and neglect I had put my body & mind through for years caught up with me. What I didn't realize, was that there's a time to hustle ANDDDD a time to rest! I wasn't doing the ladder...and I have a feeling most of us aren't. 

A lot of us cope with anxiety and overwhelm by turning to fast-fashion or mindlessly scrolling/binge watching your go-to shows that leave you feeling MORE tired-- I’m here to guide you through alternative, more impacting, ways to cope! 
 
The Slow Seeker’s overarching purpose is care: care for yourself, care for others and care for this planet. If it sounds right up your alley, WELCOME!
 
We put all of this into practice through:

 

The Slow Seeker Shop is a curated vintage & thrift shop which aims at reducing textile waste and normalizing circular fashion! I've been scouring the internet for vintage since '07 and am thrilled I now get to look for one-of-a-kind pieces for you too! I look for versatile and statement pieces that you can easily incorporate into your existing wardrobe! Size inclusivity is VVVV important to me so please know that I try to be mindful of ALL body types. ❤ 

 

No-nonsense blog about slow fashion, living and travel
Your no-nonsense space to listen and learn. It wasn’t until I slowed down and listened, that I began to understand my worth and capabilities--we tend to forget both when we’re operating on cruise control or high-speed! I know you're inundated with info so I try to keep my journal entries short & sweet 😘
  
Whether you’re pressed for time, money or energy, there’s a place for you here. I’m SOOOOO glad you’re here :)
 
Cheers! 
Amanda R. Martinez
