Vintage glasses, starship bracelet and Christian Dior

At this time of the year we’re inspired by the autumn light. The autumn has never been brighter! We forget how the cold is sneaking up on us because the days are filled with sunshine and the mornings covered in beautiful fogs. We want to embrace the light pastels this season offers and that the best is yet to come.. Autumn – we are ready for you!

Vegan sneakers and foot cream for the fall

First of all, we want to introduce you to these sneakers. A classic model that’s totally vegan and made out of GOTS certified cotton. Ethletic products are Fair Trade produced from FairTrade sustainable resources. Even the rubber is made out of natural rubber instead of synthetic materials. Since we’re speaking about feet, the Burt’s Bees leg and foot cream is one to love. Smells fresh and gives your feet some extra love when the weather gets colder.

Candlelights, body creams and tiny pens

This week’s inspiration comes from the slowly changing of seasons. The leaves fall off the trees; every night a little darker; every day a little colder. When the seasons change, our body needs a little extra care. Hands, lips and face are a few things we easily forget to take care of, now is the time!
