Who made your clothes?

“We want to use the power of fashion to inspire a permanent change in the fashion industry and reconnect the broken links in the supply chain. At the moment of purchase, most of us are unaware of the processes and impacts involved in the creation of a garment. We need to reconnect through a positive narrative, to understand that we aren’t just purchasing a garment or accessory, but a whole chain of value and relationships.”  – Fashion Revolution

Bantu Knots

Im more of a twist girl and not so much for more “complicated” hair styles but change is always good! So, to funk it up a bit, I did bantu knots a few weeks ago and I did not sleep like a baby that night but my curls were popin’ the day after.

Ibikéyé

I need to tell you all about a wonderful young woman I met recently! Her name is Charlotte and she is the CEO of the brand  Ibikéyé. She designs amazing  hand-made jewels made in Benin and Niger with pure African materials and I’m so in love with her beautiful pieces. What I also like is the spirit behind her brand! She is all about encouraging women to be bold, different and unique, “don’t blend in. Be rare”. Amen to that!

smycken One of my favourite bracelets from her collection is the “Alafia” bracelet which means peace and blessings in Yoruba.

Time Village Paris Launch

“Help someone with things you love doing, get help when you need. Time Village is the fun place to meet great people, and make the world a little better.

Time Village was born with love in Stockholm last year and is now expanding in other European cities. On 14 April we will be kicking off the Time Village in Paris.

The event will be a laid back meet-up where you can learn more about Time Village, have a drink, meet some of the old and new members, and find out how you can help them, a charity or yourself.”
