BRAINS ARE THE NEW TITS

SHIRT BY No Basics

Some of you may know that I’m not a professional Netflixer (I only wish!). I’m actually a full-time Environmental Science student in London. I’m also not native in English (y’all probably figured that out, ha!). Therefore, I do find uni quite challenging. Sometimes I even think I need more than one brain to eventually get my Bachelor’s degree.

Fortunately, there’s ‘No basics’. Even though the brains on this t-shirt won’t actually make you more intelligent (we can try though, right?), it does make you look very smart. I’ve already gotten so many compliments on it. Everything about this shirt is just right. It’s funny, clever, organic and ethically-made.

I paired it with a body con nude skirt and knotted the shirt to make it cropped or tucked it into the skirt on one side. I either wore this combo with white sneakers or my Nae sandals.

The t-shirt is made from 100% organic, GM-free cotton in a wind-powered factory and it’s low carbon. And if you like simple white t-shirts with clever prints, just check out No basics apparel.

 

VEGAN BLING FOR YOUR FEET

cream burlap w/silver glitter & crystals by JBEEBESHOES

Finding vegan AND ethically made shoes can be tough. Finding cute ones and maybe even trendy ones is even harder. But that’s why I’m here. I’ve got you covered, babes ūüėČ
No girl out there HAS to wear dead animal skin with blood from poor mistreated workers from Bangladesh on them on their feet.

When I came across the Instagram of Jbeebe shoes I instantly noticed how unique these vegan shoes are. They have that stylish slides-design that is huge right now. Plus, an elastic band in the back for extra comfort. My highlight:

The glitter and rhinestones. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right? The crystals make the burlap material they’re made of look so ‘summer in Mykonos’. And for all the rhinestone-lovers out there: Jbeebe shoes recently released a new design with even more crystals on the slides! I AM IN LOVE.

Jessica Beebe manufactures the shoes of her label Jbeebe shoes by hand. She even makes you your own custom-made pair of shoes if you contact her. And is there anything more chic than custom-made, vegan, bling shoes?

BAMBOO COLLECTION TOP & BOTTOMS BY Bare Beach 

Did you know that more than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean every year? Do you know what happens with the plastic in our oceans? Fish eat it (fish that you might eat for dinner!), it kills sea animals and it makes your beach vacay look not so good. So what should we do with all that plastic if not dump into the sea? How about making super cute swimwear out of it!

That’s what Bare Beach does. They recycle plastic and manufacture ethical bikinis out of the created fabric. The produce every bikini in North America. That’s why Bare Beach is not just an ethical company but also a sustainable one. They also use¬†EcoEnclose packaging produced¬†from 100% recycled content and stand up for a planet with less waste!

I’ve certainly enjoyed my day at the lake in my recycled bikini. Laying in the sun feels so much better with a good conscience.

BLACK HALTERNECK SWIMSUIT BY RubyMoon

If you buy swimwear from your high street fashion brand, you are contributing to unethical working conditions: unfair wages, unethical working hours, unsafe factories.

Not cool.

Better? RubyMoon Swimwear for example.

RubyMoon manufactures ethically using sustainable materials and helps women set up and grow businesses across the globe.¬†100% of the net profits generated by RubyMoon are lent out as small loans, to empower women entrepreneurs in eleven nations.¬†In addition, RubyMoon chooses sustainable materials ‚ÄstECONYL¬ģ nylon yarn from used fishing nets and other waste material is used in our quality swimwear fabrics. Unlike others, RubyMoon doesn‚Äôt use petroleum to make swimwear.

This swimsuit is very classy and can even be worn as a top like I did with some Armed Angels jeans shorts.

WHITE ‘HUA’ BLOUSE BY Gnana Studio

WHITE ‘FALDA MANGANO’ SKIRT BY Aware

SUNGLASSES BY Ace and Tate

SANDALS BY Scotti

Letting workers risk their health and life for your summer clothes is a no no. Plus, the quality of fast fashion clothes is terrible.

The long sleeve blouse by Gnana Studio protects you from mosquito bites and chilly summer nights. Gnana Studio only uses cruelty free (vegan) fabrics and no plastic materials which makes them a sustainable company. Plus, the label is sweatshop free, respecting human rights.

The mini skirt by Aware is one of my summer favourites. It fits perfectly in the waist since you can wrap it and tie it yourself. It can be purchased together with a matching top which not only makes creating an outfit easier but also enables you to mix and match. Aware is a Spanish label producing in Barcelona.

BLOUSE BY Hessnatur

JEANS SHORTS BY Armed Angels

Did you know that every year, the global¬†leather¬†industry slaughters more than a billion animals? Did you know that most leather comes from China and along with cattle, other animals‚ÄĒincluding sheep, dogs, and cats‚ÄĒare killed for their skin?

There are so many unfair actions taken in the leather industry. Plus, once the animal’s skin was ripped off the cow or cat, it is manufactured by modern day slaves under as unethical conditions as the animal was treated.
Just for a pair of cute sandals? I’d rather go barefoot.

Or better: wear those ethically manufactured, vegan sandals. The materials are from Europe and the sandals are made in Spain. They are breathable, eco-friendly (Ecolabel certified) and in contrast to leather, not produced with toxic chemicals that end up in the groundwater, polluting our planet.

They are super comfortable, look amazing and match so many different outfits!

The blouse is perfect for every season and it’s even work appropriate – dress it up or down. Hessnatur is a label that produces sustainable, organic and fair clothing.¬†BUT: Even though it’s made out of cotton, I found out that it says on the website that it contains materials (I’m guessing the buttons) from animals which makes it NOT VEGAN.

The Armed Angels jeans shorts have been a staple this summer. They are high waisted and even though they look horrific on the Armed Angels website, they fit amazingly. Armed Angels is a fair and sustainable company.

 

Vegan food in Ubud at the Elephant restaurant

June and July have been all about traveling. Max and I have been to Thailand, Singapore and Bali. After 2 weeks in Bali, I can say that the island is hands down, vegan heaven.

One of my highlights in Ubud:

The elephant restaurant. The beautiful restaurant in Ubud with an amazing view offers healthy dishes with lots of vegan options. Additionally, it is making an effort to be more sustainable which I absolutely love! The restaurant is trying to be as much ‘zero waste‘ as possible: plastic is avoided at all times, organic waste gets fed to the pigs, reusables gets reused. Lots of ingredients they use are local and organic. They even filter their own rainwater to conserve water. In short, a sustainable restaurant heaven.

When it comes to the food, let me tell you, it was delicious. We’ve had the rice paper rolls, ¬†garlic bread, steamed greens, coconut noodle soup, vegan spaghetti bolognaise and the potatoes along with a coconut and the green juice. As a dessert we’ve shared the mango sticky rice and I can tell you, I’ve never been so full in my life.

The day before we’ve been to their sister restaurant in Canggu, the Green Ginger noodle house which offers similar dishes in a more causal and smaller venue. The food was incredible as well and a must when you’re in the Canggu area!

Simply look at the photos I’ve taken of the venue and the vegan food and I’m sure the elephant restaurant will be a must at your next Bali trip.

Vegan & organic restaurant & shop in Vienna at ELMIRA

If you follow me on my Instagram, you know that I’m spending the summer in Vienna (after my 1 month travels around Asia) which I’m very happy about since Vienna is a great city if you’re vegan. The city offers you lots of vegan shops and restaurants and there are always new vegan business opening up.

Therefore, I was very excited to see that there was a new organic shop & lunch place near my best friend Sarah’s place.

Elmira sells organic, fairtrade and vegan food such as nuts, lentils, rice, coconut oil, protein powder and more and offers organic, vegan and even raw dishes and drinks. The exciting part about the shop is that they have huge variety of bulk foods that you can fill up in your own containers or in the jars or bags they provide you. Plus, the bulk food, jusst like everything Elmira offers, is very affordable!

When it comes to the fresh vegan snacks and lunches they create, I’ve tried the quinoa salad, the lentil apple salad and the bagel, along with a pomegranate lemonade and a turmeric lemonade and everything was not only healthy but delicious. One of my highlights was their vegan homemade ice cream which they sell for only 2‚ā¨! You can choose between a vanilla or chocolate ice cream base that is made out of rice milk. Then you can choose your ingredients: berries, coconut, fruit or a variety of nuts, whatever you like. The Elmira employee will then put the desired ingredient with the ice cream base into their ice cream machine that they’ve imported from the USA and mix your fresh ice cream. I was stunned. Sarah and I decided to go for a vanilla, berry, pistachio mixture and it tasted incredible!

There’s so much more I could tell you about this amazing place. For example that Elmira sells homemade coconut oil, nut milks ¬†and homemade raw sweets, tries to get as much of their ingredients and products from local farmers as possible or that they also do diet and exercise consultancies. But just go to their website or Facebook page and read for yourself. The owner of the family business Elmira is a very caring and sweet woman who really tries to offer you only the best of the best.

I’m amazed by the shop and will definitely come back many times and hope you’ll give it a try too!

LITTLE BLACK BATHING SUIT

P1360648P1360567P1360537 (1)P1360411P1360537

BLACK ‘JUDITH’ SWIMSUIT BY Shetoldme:

The swimwear industry is just like the fashion industry: full of unfair labour, environmentally damaging production practices and sometimes even animal cruelty. Additionally, the swimwear ads show extremely photoshopped and unrealistic female bodies that don’t support body positivity at all.

Shetoldme promotes their swimwear according to feminist principles, using realistically looking and diverse models for their advertising. They are also cruelty free and sweatshop free! Their designs are amazing too.

The black swimsuit ‘Judith’ fits perfectly and has that cheeky coverage I love! I personally recommend everyone who wants that staple black bathing suit, to go for this fair fashion piece.

MY FAVOURITE VEGAN SANDALS THIS SUMMER

P1070271P1070338IMG_7592DSCF5681P1270090P1270421

IRENE BROWN SANDALS BY Nae

GLITTER SANDALS BY Scotti

If you follow me on my Instagram,¬†you know that I’ve been traveling a lot this summer. To my trips to Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia I’ve only packed 4 pairs of shoes: trainers, high heels and 2 pairs of sandals. On my travels I’ve been walking a lot in those sandals and both shoes look brand new! Because of their minimalistic design they are quite versatile too. While the glitter sandals can be worn to the beach and at night outs, the brown/ nude sandals are ideal for the city and dinners. They are simple yet chic and most important of all: vegan and ethically produced.

The brown sandals by Nae are made using a CO2 free manufacturing system in Portugal from microfibre. The glitter ‘Riva’ sandals by Scotti are also made zero CO2 emission production processes in Italy from a new microfibre that is made from natural renewable sources (vegetable seeds!). Scotti is also Peta Vegan approved.

Armeria manufactures their swimwear ethically in Bali, contributing to the fair fashion movement, and hand paints their swimwear prints in the UK.

I’m definitely excited for future swimwear of Armeria and since this brand is so awesome, they even gave me a discount code to offer you guys!

‘VEGAN No35’ SHIRT BY green because I can

JEANS SHORT BY Armed Angels

SUNGLASSES BY Ace and Tate

If you follow me on my Instagram, you know that I’ve been traveling around Asia, including Thailand. When I’ve been to the Sunday market in Bangkok I’ve decided to look at the pet shops there. It was one of the most horrible experiences I’ve made when it comes to animals. It made it even more clear that Asia is lacking in animal rights.

One more reason to spread the vegan message by wearing a sustainable and fair fashion t-shirt! ‘Green because I can‘ is a German label that produce ethically using vegan and sustainable certified organic materials. Their shirts are a staple in every closet. Their fabrics are super soft and the design is simple yet chic. I wore my ‘VEGAN’ shirt on my travels as a sleeping shirt, sports wear, airplane outfit and of course as a daytime outfit paired with Armed Angels jeans shorts and Ace and Tate sunglasses.

FAIR FASHION SWIMWEAR FOR SUMMER

MEL ONEPIECE BY Armeria £80

FRANESS ONEPIECE BY¬†Essentials for Zula¬†‚ā¨58

HACIENDA BIKINI TOP & MANDALAY BOTTOMS IN CHERRY BY Reformation $78 & $78

PANAMA TOP & BOTTOMS BY Pura CHF 95 & CHF 95

KNOTTY SWIMSUIT IN BW BY¬†Souldaze¬†‚ā¨120

First, the bad news: just like underwear, swimwear is also made in sweatshops in most cases – just like other clothing pieces. Meaning that cute bikinis are made by underpaid workers under terrible conditions. The worst thing that can happen to the workers in those factories? -DEATH. During the factory collapse in Bangladesh in 2013 more than one thousand workers died. Who wants blood on their swimsuits? Not me.

Now the good news: there are a lot of brands nowadays that either focus on sustainable and ethical manufacturing or are small, local companies that produce the bathing suits by hand in their little studios which is totally ethical and sweatshop free too!

The first bathing suit is made ethically in Bali and hand painted in the UK. I personally own a bikini from Armeria and have to say that it’s one of the best qualities I’ve ever seen in a swimsuit! The designs are super nice too! I wish I could have every single one of them ūüėČ

A black swimsuit is a must in every closet. The one piece by Essentials for Zula has a nice strap design in the back and is ethically made in Thailand. Reformation is one of my favourite fair fashion brands. Now the’ve started their own swimwear line! The red two piece set is made ethically and sustainably in the USA. While manufacturing this garment the brand is reducing water, carbon dioxide and waste. The bikini by Pura reminds me of something Alexis Ren would wear. It has a strap detail in the back and ¬†cheeky bottoms. Pura makes their swimwear by hand in Switzerland using European fabrics. The swimsuit by Souldaze is reversible and made ethically in Rome out of recycled fabrics. It has a cheeky design in the back.

WHITE ‘PAMAIKAI’ DRESS BY Gnana Studio

SUNGLASSES BY Ace and Tate

Off the shoulder dresses and tops are huge right now and I love that style too. However, contributing to the unethical and unsustainable fast fashion industry which is one of the top polluting industries of the world, just to own a trendy dress, should not be an option.

This dress by Gnana Studio is ideal for the summer. It’s lightweight and perfect to wear over your bathing suit. It has adjustable sleeves and an adjustable cleavage – wear it loose or tight, off the shoulders or covering your shoulders.

Gnana Studio only uses cruelty free (vegan) fabrics but no plastic materials which makes them a sustainable company. Plus, contrary to companies that offer the latest trend as well like H&M or Zara, the label is sweatshop free, respecting human rights.

 

 

4 JUMPSUITS FOR THE SUMMER

OFF SHOULDER PLAYSUIT BY Noumenon

JUMPSUIT BETTIE IN CHERRY BY Reformation

KAVALA JUMPER BY Lovjoi

JUMPSUIT UMA 2.0 BY Hati Hati

The playsuit (‚ā¨165) by Noumenon has that very trendy off-shoulder design and is made out of linen. Noumenon is a vegan, GOTS certified (organic) company. I love the colour of the Reformation jumpsuit ($178) which is also made out of linen. The piece saved 13 lbs of carbon, 885 gallons of water and 1 pound of waste (compared to the industry standard) according to Reformation’s website. Reformation produces their garments ethically in the United States using eco-friendly practices: their energy supply is from wind-power, they recycle and compost waste, they work with local and sustainable suppliers and much more.¬†Plus, Reformation is a¬†Certified Benefit Corporations (B Corps) which¬†is a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. The white jumpsuit (‚ā¨150) is also available in an army green colour and is ethically and ecologically manufactured in Germany. The Hati Hati jumpsuit (‚ā¨160) is a wardrobe staple. It can be worn day and night and I can even see it worn in Spring and Fall. Hati Hati manufactures sustainably and ethically using less chemically treated fabrics.

ERASTOS WRAP TOP BY essentials for zula

The white shirt (‚ā¨65) is by Lillika Eden which is a brand that manufactures vegan and organic garments under fair conditions. ¬†The Lucy top ($118) is similar to the Volant shirt – a basic t-shirt with a twist. Amour Vert’s production is located in the U.S. using non-toxic dyes, sustainable fabrics and zero waste practices. However, not all products of the brand are vegan.¬†The off shoulder top (‚ā¨70)¬†is perfect for those nights where mosquitoes want to suck all your blood. Miss Green manufactures in GOTS certified and ethical European and Indian workshops where they use no harmful chemicals and organic fabrics, minimising their water use.¬†The Noumenon top (‚ā¨78) comes in several colours and is one of my personal favourites. Noumenon’s garments are vegan, GOTS certified (organic), made from sustainable fabrics. I’m eyeing the lace blouse¬†(‚ā¨140) by Lanius for a while now. I see this piece worn casually with jeans and for night outs dressed up with heels. Lanius is a vegan and GOTS certified brand.¬†The baby blue top (‚ā¨80) by Lovjoi is one of those pieces that can easily be dressed up or down. It is ethically and ecologically made in Germany. Last but not least, the wrap top¬†(‚ā¨34) by essentials for zula that comes in light grey as well. It is ethically produced in Thailand.

The pink slip dress (‚ā¨70) is made from recycled polyester which makes it vegan and sustainable.

Apart from their trendy, beautiful designs, Reformation produces their garments ethically in the United States using eco-friendly practices: their energy supply is from wind-power, they recycle and compost waste, they work with local and sustainable suppliers and much more.¬†Plus, Reformation is a¬†Certified Benefit Corporations (B Corps) which¬†is a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.¬†The Lanius dress (‚ā¨120) is vegan, like every garment from the company, and sustainably made.

 

ETHICAL UNDIES

MIA BRA & MIA STRING BY Underprotection

SENSITIVE STRING IN NUDE BY Calida (on sale!)

CHLOE BRA & SIMONE THONG IN BEACH GLASS BY Naja (on sale!)

OLYMPIA BRALETTE BY essentials for zula

We all wear underwear. But bras and briefs from high street fashion brands are produced in the same way as t-shirts and jeans. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in some ethically-made, high quality undergarments. The black set by the Danish fair fashion brand Underprotection, bra (‚ā¨47) and string¬†(‚ā¨33), is made from sustainable fabrics and is a good staple for a greener closet. The string (‚ā¨8)¬†by Calida is available in white, black and nude and is ethically-made and is not made with harmful substances (OEKO-TEX¬ģ Standard 100).

The Naja lace set is also available in different colours, bra ($33) & brief ($7), and is made by single mothers who additionally get paid their children’s school uniforms, school meals and school supplies by the company. Naja also uses digital printing on their lingerie to reduce water waste. The brand also offers a great variety of basic nude bras and panties for every skin colour!

The white bralette(‚ā¨26)¬†by essentials for zula is ethically made in Thailand and can easily worn as a crop top in summer or as festival wear.

 

 

 

(almost) PLASTIC FREE BATHROOM ESSENTIALS

SOLID DEODORANT BY Lamazuna

SHAMPOO BAR FOR NORMAL HAIR BY Lamazuna

TEA TREE OIL

MAKEUP REMOVAL PADS BY Lamazuna

Okay, so I’m not completely zero waste like Lauren Singer. But I’m aware of the fact that there is A LOT of plastic in our everyday life which¬†cannot be recycled and ends up in the ocean. The solution to that are small changes in eg. your hair and skin care product choice that make your life more sustainable.

The company Lamazuna offers plastic free products like this deodorant that you simply apply on damp skin (‚ā¨12) and this shampoo bar for normal hair (‚ā¨13). This shampoo bar smells like a day at the Spa and even foams! After trying out several shampoo bars and even no-poo methods (rye flour, rice flour, baking soda, ACV) and hating every single method, I felt so happy to find this amazing shampoo bar. You seriously won’t notice the difference to a (plastic) bottled shampoo and it’s perfectly suitable for traveling!

Tea tree oil is the best natural spot treatment since it’s antiseptic and dries out the blemish overnight. Plus, it usually comes in a glass bottle.

Lamazuna’s make-up removing wipes (‚ā¨11) are a good swap for your conventional disposable pads. Just put them in the little washing bag they come with and throw them in the washing machine after use.

Who’s ready for summer? These blush coloured shoes and bags make my heart skip a beat!

They offer¬†a variety of vegan shoes that are so chic I had to include another pair here. I’ve seen Mules everywhere on the streets of London but these nude mules (¬£65) made out of faux suede have that unique touch with their edgy heel. The beyond skin sandals are currently on sale (¬£79)! They are by a vegan company that produce in Spain. I have a thing for tiny bags so these vegan and sweatshop free bags by melie bianco (¬£42) and Alexandra K (‚ā¨179) are a dream come true! The vegan pink mules (¬£85) and that (again) tiny backpack (¬£88) by¬†matt & nat could actually work well together. Plus, the colour of the backpack is called ‘tofu’. Do I have to say more? Lastly, the ethically-made and vegan crossbody bag by Angela Roi ($135) is perfect for traveling.
