Friday Favourites

Weekend is almost here and I decided to write Friday Favorites again. I had a lot of fun this week and wanted to share a few bits and bobs that brightened my week with you guys.

Favourite Thoughts by May The Thoughts Be With You
I met the lovely creator of May The Thoughts Be With You in Portobello Market the other day and I purchased her book, which is filled with cute designs and lovely quotes just like “The Bee of Tranquility”. I read a few quotes every day, mostly just before I go to bed and I love it! It makes me fall asleep with a smile on my face :)

 Favourite shoes by Katz & Birds

Katz & Birds is a very talented designer who only uses cruelty-free materials in her products. I love all the details and these foxes are one of my favourite. Pretty, pretty for autumn days.

Favourite News by Peta India: India Bans Import of Animal-Tested Cosmetics
Quote from the page: “The Indian Ministry of Health & Family Welfare has made an announcement that will save millions of animals from being blinded, poisoned and killed in cruel and useless tests for products sold to India’s billion-plus population. In a move that will bring cheers from around the world, the Ministry has now officially banned animal-tested cosmetics from being imported into India. The decision will be implemented in November.” Woop, woop! :) 

Favourite recipe by Kalel

Lovely Kalel started her new Youtube channel and I instantly fell in love with this recipe - Healthy  Artichoke Alfredo (vegan). I strongly recommend you try it. 

What are your Friday Favorites? Feel free to share them with me :)

Pacifica Perfume: Island Vanilla

 Pacifica perfumes have been on my “to buy” list for a while and my heart jumped the other day when I got Island Vanilla as a present. Say what?! It is my favourite scent and I am wearing it as I am writing this post. I would love to eat it (I say that about too many products, don't I...), but luckily I know it better. Being bad at describing scents, I decided to rather write the official description on the packaging, which says: Tahitian vanilla, loved for its fruity and slightly floral aroma, is anchored with rich bourbon vanilla notes. If you are like me and not sure about ordering perfumes online, you can find these perfumes in Planet Organic or Whole Foods Market. That's where I smelled the whole collection and I must admit that some of them really weren't my cup of tea, but I did fall in love with two other sweet scents. 

 INGREDIENTS: alcohol denat (natural grain), parfum (Pacifica's own blend of essential oils contains: d-limonene), aqua.

 Pacifica perfumes are made in the USA, they are without parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol and they are vegan :) Portion of proceeds also supports clean water. I was not aware of that until I got the perfume and read the packaging. I will probably look for more products from this brand from now on, because I love supporting companies, which do good for the planet as well. 


 Also, I love, love the packaging - pretty and elegant white and pink colours with a floral design. Island Vanilla (btw, don't you just feel like you are on an island somewhere in the middle of paradise when saying the name?) has 10ml, which I love, because I can put it in my cabin baggage when flying.


Do you know Pacifica? What do you think about it?

Monkee Genes

Monkee Genes - what a great name! I have a soft spot for original and interesting names and that was one of the main reasons I instantly fell in love with this brand. Not to mention these jeans have bananas on their buttons, which I eat almost every day (bananas, not buttons). I have been checking out Monkee Genes for a while and I finally purchased them a few days ago in a cruelty-free shop The Third Estate near Camden Town. I got Bamboo Classic Skinny and they are super comfortable. The brand is PETA approved and does not support slave labour or child labour. In other words: No blood, no sweat, no tears. What a great message! 

Banana!

While trying to pose, an older lady walked by and asked: Are you taking the photos of the patch? You are covering it a bit. Here, let me help you. And she fixed my jacket, wished us a good day and walked away down the road. Thank you, kind stranger! :) 

The rest of my clothes: Blazer - Top Shop, Non-leather Shoes - Top Shop, Shirt - Old School, Bag - Borrowed from my sister, but don't tell her, necklace - handmade, most comfortable bamboo socks ever.

Do you have any Monkee Genes in your closet? What do you think about them?

Soft lips with HurRAW lip balm



  Winter is just around the corner and I decided to purchase a lip balm that will keep my lips from getting dry. Luckily, I normally don't have a problem with dry lips and I was basically just looking for an excuse to get this divine smelling product by Hurraw. It smells like black cherry, which makes me want to eat it constantly. I wish I could somehow include the smell in this post so you could enjoy it with me. Besides making a party for my nose, this lip balm is also a very good moisturiser and I love its consistency - it makes my lips incredibly soft. The ingredients are amazing: sweet almond oil, candelilla wax, coconut oil, jojoba seed oil, cocoa seed butter, castor seed oil, olive fruit oil, organic flavours and vitamin e. It is raw (hurRAW!), vegan and organic. The lip balm is cold pressed and it is recommended that it is kept in a place with a normal temperature (between 4 and 22 Celsius). Probably one of the best things you can get for your lips these days. I would definitely recommend it.
