h&m goes upcycled

Just read some amazing news! H&M has decided to upcycle Lanvin leftovers into new “waste” collection! I thought they were doing fine with the Garden Collection, but this is even better! It’s very exclusive: only one store per country sells the ten piece collection designed by Ann-Sofie Johansson (H&M’s design chief). But don’t worry: it’s also on sale online from early March…

vintage fashion finds

I’ve made it a habit to check the website of Dutch Glamour every once in a while. Not because I want to stay up to date, but because they have a Detox Store. It’s like eBay in small and only with clothes and accessories. And now they’ve got some pretty items..

Check out this jumpsuit. I’ve been looking for one for ages and I think I like this a lot. If there were a fitting room I’d check it right away! For € 40,- it’s yours.

dress is very romantic. Pare it up with brown leather boots or ballerina’s as you like. At € 15,- it’s a bargain.

Look at this party dress! Ain’t that a killer? It’s a silk Zara dress made for a cocktail party. And € 25,- don’t hurt. If only a where a size M…

To complete your look, you need shoes. And by that I mean some killer heels. For example: these jewels. They go very well with the second dress.

Hope you’ve found it inspiring! Check out the website every once in a while and be surprised!

organic cake shop for sweet teeth

I’ve always had an appetite for sweets. Whether it’s chocolate, cookies or cake: if it’s in the fridge, it won’t be in an hour. That’s why I’m so excited that more and more brand are choosing fair trade ingredients. For instance: almost all the chocolate letters (given in the Netherlands to children during the Sinterklaas holiday) are nowadays fair trade! And Verkade only sells fair trade chocolate bars.

And now there’s a place where every cake you buy is good! It’s the cake shop ‘Taartenatelier’ (Cake workshop place) in Zutphen. It’s a business from bread baker Henk Smit, who also owns bakery ‘Driekant’. All the cakes are organic and fresly made just as you look at it! All the products are made with natural ingredients. For instance, it contains less sugar and natural sweeteners. It also has fair trade chocolates, organic marzipan and ice cream. But the baker doesn’t just look at what’s in it. The people who make it are also important. Ex-addicts, ex-psychiatric patients and people with a handicap have a work space in the cake shop. So not only ‘planet’, but also ‘people’. Nice to read, isn’t it?
