karaoke wednesday special | L.A. dreaming

Too many consecutive days working hard and sleeping little means you should slow it down during midweek. Reset your mind and your body. Give it a rest. Make some soup, water your plants, burn your Nang Champa and sing along.

monday favorites | SANS [ceuticals]

Today's Monday favorites are a bit personal. So I won't be posting about the coolest thing happening on Etsy or the lastest indie fashion brand that has left everyone shaking.
I've been a massive fan of SANS [ceuticals] for some time now, since I first discovered the brand online. I just love their approach and philosophy to beauty products: pesticide-free, simple, modern, women-friendly and effective.
This being said, the wonderful people at New Zealand's beauty brand SANS [ceuticals] sent me some of their most delightful  and lush products. 
I truly, truly can't believe how my hair turned out after using their products. And I truly mean this. The scents are unbelievably poetic and  fresh, the textures are beautiful and soft and the end result is just perfection. It was like from limp and dull to instant shine, strenght and sheer beauty. I am now devoted to their brand. Forever. And ever. And beyond. Thank you so,so much!

monday favorites | a folk odissey

In these last few days I have been absent from everyday routines. I have been sick; it's not a dead serious thing, but still it's kind of messed up. Folk the pain away with these tunes; look up at the sky above and step your naked feet on the ground, inhaling the familiar air that only the morning dew brings.

Linen and silk. Natural colors. Gentle reminders of a whispering natural Mother. Fluid shapes that wrap up your body. It's a gentle new age. Unconstricted. Ultra chrome. Ultra silver. Just a detail, peeking here and there, acting like sweet post it notes about futuristic, magical time portals.

I love Sheila Hicks work so much. It's so intricate, so poetic and the colors she uses are just otherwordly. Her pieces feel so contemporary that it's hard to believe some have been conceived over 40 years ago.

TELAR by Nido & Nido AW14 lookbook
I am very excited about this one! The lovely people at knitwear brand Nido, contacted me showcasing me their AW14-15 lookbook that I am now sharing with you. Nido now produces in parallel to their wearable knitwear designs, an artisan hand loom woven textile line where you are able to find  beautiful quilts, throws and bags.  
Every design and product is hand-woven in Argentina; Nido is refreshing in the sense that they are keeping ancestral weaving tradition alive allied to contemporary design and modern vision. Visit Nido here.
