I’ve been thinking of new blog posts to spice it up a little and after coming up with my FAIR & VEGAN FASHION QUICKY, I thought that it would be cool if I share my favourites of this previous month. I hope you like this new segment. I’m really excited and I can’t wait to introduce you to ethical, vegan and sustainable products and brands that make my heart skip a beat!


Shoes of the month

I’ve been wearing those so often. They make every outfit look more chic. I even wore then with jeans and a t-shirt and instantly looked more put together. The brand was very new to me. Love Sofie is a young vegan shoe label that uses recycled and organic materials and manufactures under ethical conditions in the EU minimising their impact on the environment by decreasing transport time.

Bag of the month

I had to force myself not using the same bag everyday because I love this one so much and would even mismatch an outfit with it. The design is classic yet the colour adds a touch of youth to it. I love how versatile the gold chain strap is. The label Labante is my favourite vegan bag label currently. The company manufacture under ethical conditions and try to minimise their environmental footprint by using recycled materials. They are PETA approved vegan so you don’t have to worry about non-vegan glues.

Gym + Onzie workout clothes

Just like the previous months, I loved going to the gym! Moving my body has been a must for me lately. A couple of months ago I started this deal with myself to workout 5 times a week. If I’m only able to go less than 5 times that’s still great but I needed to set this goal so that working out becomes a habit for me. I didn’t always reach the 5 times a week target but I worked out every week and felt happy doing it! That’s a huge win for me! What helped me feel good in my skin while working out are my new workout clothes by Onzie. They are ethically made in the USA and look and fit amazingly! They’ve motivated me to go to the gym because I was so excited to wear them. I’ve been looking for fair workout clothes for so long and was so happy to find this label. I’m wearing their sports bra and high waisted leggings in the photo below.

Book of the month

Here’s a confession: I haven’t been reading a lot of books in the last years. I loved reading books when I was a child and in my teen years but I’ve spent my time doing other more creative activities in the last years like taking photos with Max and myself. But this month Max surprised me with this book and I loved it! It’s called “Lean in” by Sheryl Sandberg. I’m sure some of you already know it and have read it already. It’s quite well known. It’s basically about women in work and as leaders as well as gender equality. I can highly recommend it to all you motivated bosses out there! It’s empowering and motivates you to take your career to the next level.

Candle of the month

I received a huge package from Vegan Bunny this month filled with natural and vegan soy wax candles. I bought one of their candles a couple months ago and loved the scent, natural & vegan philosophy and design so I was so happy to try all the scents! I burned the Sweet Orange candle this month and it made my apartment smell like sweet orange indeed but not overpowering to the extent that you get headaches. Conventional candles contain paraffins that are linked to lung cancer and the scent is always too strong for me. ❌ Natural candles use natural ingredients that don’t cause cancer. 🙅‍♀️ That’s why I love Vegan Bunny candles. Plus, the new copper packaging looks so cute! 😍

Brand of the month

I want to take this section and write about companies that I love. I’m excited to introduce you to Who gives a crap who don’t just have the best company name ever but are also doing amazing things for the environment and people! This is not just any toilet paper brand. Let’s start with the most awesome fact about them: they donate 50% of their profit to help build toilets and improve sanitation globally! Why? Because 2.3 billion people don’t have access to a toilet and around 289,000 childrenunder five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation! That’s crap. So I love seeing a company that cares and makes a difference in the world. But that’s not all. Who gives a crap uses bamboo and recycled paper to make their toilet paper instead of virgin trees which saves water, energy and lots of trees! Plus, they send a huge box of plastic-free toilet paper right to your home! That’s great if you are too lazy to go shopping (a.k.a me) and if you want to decrease your plastic consumption. And for my health conscious people out there: Who gives a crap toilet paper is made without chemical inks, dyes or scents. Last but not least: how freaking cute is the plastic-free packaging!
