The Andean Collection – Jewellery from the Rainforest

If you’ve been scouring stores for eco-friendly jewellery that will convey an abundance of style and an inspiring story each time you wear it, why not try jewellery made from rainforest seeds? A green girl couldn’t ask for more!

Classic Tagua Bracelets – handmade by Christian $20
Founder, Amanda Judge (who has previously worked on projects for UNICEF Nicaragua as well as microfinance projects in Ecuador and Peru) initially travelled to Ecuador ‘researching rural women’s survival strategies in the face of extreme poverty for her master thesis.’ Fortunately for the local artisans who make the jewellery and fortunately for us, the lucky wearers of these rare and exotic materials, the Andean Collection was born.

Jabon and Acai 3 Strand Necklace – handmade by Olga Lucia Moran $50

The female artisans in Ecuador who make this beautiful jewellery by hand, are now able to reach a wider market through the Andean Collection which ensures they are paid fair wages (more than suggested in the World of Good’s Fair Wage Guide) and are also able to ‘share in the profits of the company as partial owners’. The Andean Collection has applied for membership with the Fair Trade Federation and will be eligible after their ‘first sixth months of sales’.

Acai Earrings
– handmade by Olga Lucia Moran $19


Many jewellery items made today come from dubiously derived synthetic beads, plastics and metals but eco-savvy women can adorn themselves happily with the Andean Collection because their materials are ‘sustainably harvested from the rainforest and low lands of South America.’ Using exquisite acai, tagua, pambil, jabon and huayruro seeds is an ‘alternative way to make money from the rainforest, other than logging or selling their land to those who profit from the oil industry’.

Half Moon Coconut Bracelet – handmade by Nancy Moran $19

I find it exciting to think you can wear these little gifts from nature (many of them are collected from the forest floor once they fall) and I really love learning about how the indigenous people regard the seeds also. Apparently the Huayruro seeds have ‘been used by Peruvians for generations as charms to attract good fortune and wealth.’

Acai Necklace – handmade by Olga Lucia Moran $49


‘A cascade of acai seeds’ is how the Andean Collection describe this enchanting necklace. I personally love this necklace in fire red which would look great with an organic black singlet and jeans for summer or over dresses for an eye-catching evening look (there are other gorgeous colours to choose from also).

Classic Tagua Bracelets – handmade by Christian $20
I cannot decide which Classic Tagua Bracelet is my favourite as each colour is so utterly beguiling and I’m also loving the fact the Tagua nut does not require any trees to be cut down in order to gather the pod (which makes me want to buy more than one bracelet now). I’m torn between the multi colour and fuschia colours but visit the AC’s website to pick your perfect shade from an array of tantalizing colours.

Acai Hoop Earrings – handmade by Olga Lucia Moran $21


Many girls love a good pair of hoop earrings but if you haven’t yet got yourself a pair of eco hoop earrings that look striking and unique, then you must check out these undyed Acai seed hoop earrings (also in multi colour and pollen / natural).

Jabon and Acai 3 Strand Necklace – handmade by Olga Lucia Moran $50
‘Ooh, ooh, ooh’, I think were the highly intelligent words I squealed when I saw this necklace. If every woman could have a necklace like this in her jewellery stash, she would be quite content indeed. The black jabon and ivory tone acai seeds ooze sophistication and make this the perfect necklace to glamify any dressy or casual outfit you are wearing! The indigenous people of the Amazon also believe the Jabon seeds can ‘shield wearers from negative energy and evil spirits’.

Acai Bracelet – handmade by Olga Lucia Moran $22
I thought Acai berries were just for eating, drinking and topping up your antioxidant levels! Who knew you could wear the seeds of these wonder berries as well? This earth green bracelet stopped me in my tracks when I saw it but you can also choose from colours such as deep purple, harvest orange, fire, pollen, natural or multi colour. I could happily wear this bracelet every single day!

Waterfall Necklace – handmade by Nancy Moran $49


Named after the ‘sacred Peguche Waterfall of Otavalo’, this stunning glass and silver coloured beaded necklace is positively dripping with beauty and one of my favourite pieces from the Andean Collection. The style and colour range of this necklace is so ‘on fire’ right now and will continue to look incredibly stylish and unique and will probably require you to respond to numerous inquiries from fashionable friends and strangers as to ‘where and who’ you got your jewellery from. Just point them in the direction of the Andean Collection. You will feel both stylish and satisfied knowing you are wearing fashion made from nature and made from the hands of talented artisans who have been rewarded for their beautiful work.

What To Pack For Your Holiday – 16 Essential Eco Pieces

Here is a succinct and stylish packing list to help you feel organized, prepared and good to go for your summer holiday! Each piece on the list will mix and match with each other and give you at least 6 different outfits (more than enough for a week or two away). This robust list will also ensure you have the perfect outfit for every holiday occasion: sightseeing, relaxing, evenings out and more! Once you tick off the pieces you already own from the list and work out what items you need to buy, you can check out my suggestions for the best eco pieces available online.

Clothes
1) casual top
2) dressy top
3) blouse
4) skirt or shorts
5) trousers
6) casual dress
7) evening dress
8) cardigan
9) light jacket
10) swimsuit

Shoes and Accessories
11) scarf or pashmina
12) sunglasses
13) pretty sandals
14) comfortable shoes
15) optional: beach sandals or evening shoes
16) hat

Casual Top
A sleeveless top in white or any other light color is invaluable. You will feel lighter and more refreshed and will also enjoy the fact a white top will go with every color and pattern of skirts, shorts and trousers.


Beaumont Organic have a stunning Beaded Halter Neck Top – Beaumont Organic £75 (made in portugal / organic cotton). Available in Natural and Brown.

Dressy Top
Your second top should ideally be colorful and in your favorite and most flattering shade. It’s a fun and easy way to brighten up you and your wardrobe. I would scour vintage stores for a silk or rayon top as this fabric looks a little more luxe and would work brilliantly for any dressier occasions on your holiday such as dinner out or catching a show.

Blouse
A lightweight blouse with sleeves will come in handy for times when you want a little coverage from too much sun or cooler weather perhaps

Skirt or Shorts
I say one or the other because not every girl is comfortable in shorts. Skirts can be more accommodating thanks to their varying lengths of long hippy style, knee length or mini. Of course, shorts also come in different lengths but they do not always look as attractive! Anyway, once you choose what is best for you, you can then enjoy having one more option other than trousers to mix and match your tops and blouse with.

Trousers
I couldn’t dream of vacationing without a good pair of lightweight trousers. I’m more of a black trousers girl, as I find it easy to throw on any top or shoes with them and I like how they can still manage to look casual or formal depending on the occasion. White trousers would work equally well and look lighter for summer.

Casual Dress

I say casual but I really think the maxi dress is the way to go. They are comfortable, flattering and so easy to toss on for a stylish look!

Evening Dress
A glam little evening dress won’t take up much room in your luggage and will be quite a godsend for when you dine out at chic restaurants or get last minute tickets to a show! Of course, a black dress would be fine but since it is summer, why not keep your look colorful and fun with a dress such as this Orange Vintage 1950s Party Dress.

Cardigan
The weather can still be unpredictable during summer so it’s a good idea to pack a light cardigan. I can’t recommend cardigans enough! They are the perfect layering item for tops, dresses and underneath jackets. Frank & Faith have adorable cardigan styles in various colors but the cardigan above caught my eye in particular. Frank & Faith Bethany Cardigan – Adili £21.50, was £43 (made in UK / organic cotton). Available in four colors.

Light Jacket
A light jacket is great for any holiday that involves a lot of sightseeing or active pursuits in weird, wonderful and remote locales. I’ve finally learned to always pack a light jacket after suffering in cities within New Zealand and Scotland where the weather can fluctuate between balmy sunshine to suddenly being wickedly windy. This Drop Waist Perfect Trench by Emily Katz would have shielded me from the weather while still making me feel stylish. The charcoal is made from recycled poly/hemp denim and the marine color is made from hemp/organic cotton.

Swimsuit


Finding a glam eco swimsuit is becoming increasingly easier. This Lina Rennell Tie Swimsuit from Beklina $184 (made in california / organic jersey) is a gorgeous and unique one piece to have.

Pashmina or Scarf
Ah, the pashmina and scarf. Any supermodel or A-list actresses best friend when travelling the globe. They are great as blankets for cosier flights or travel, perfect for wrapping up during chillier weather and wonderful for draping elegantly over the shoulders during evenings out. Manumit is the place to go for raw silk scarves as their selection features many beautiful colours which are made fair trade and the raw tassel silk is also suitable for vegetarians.

Sunglasses
What is a holiday without a pair of sunglasses? If you don’t already have a classic pair of sunglasses, you can try the iWood sunglasses (made in usa / fsc certified wood) or why not see what Etsy or nearby vintage stores have to offer? Just remember to pick the right style of sunglasses for your face shape.
Round face: square frames
Long face: wider frames
Heart shape: wider frames like aviator or butterfly glasses
Square face: round frames
Those with pale skin, may want to try tortoise colour sunglasses over black for a softer and less harsh look.

Pretty Sandals


Try and find a pair of open toe sandals that are both comfortable and pretty that will go with your trousers, dress and skirt / shorts.

Comfortable Shoes
My feet and I have learnt the hard way that it is near impossible to walk the cobblestone streets of Europe in cute shoes. Unless you are on a private tour of Florence, being ushered around by car or vespa, then I’m afraid you will have to succumb to ‘the comfortable shoe’. Don’t be too frightened though, as long as the rest of your outfit looks sleek and stylish with elegant jewellery accents here and there, you should still feel confident walking amongst the impeccably dressed and groomed European women. Don’t be tempted to dress around the trainers and think, ‘well, since my feet are comfortable, I’ll just wear a t-shirt and shorts’. You can still do comfort the glam way!

Autonomie Project Ethletic All White Sneakers – Nimli $58 (made in FLO certified factory in Pakistan / organic cotton, FSC certified rubber).

Evening Shoes / Beach Sandals
Depending on your type of holiday, you may need a pair of heels for parties, concerts and frequent fancy restaurant stops or you may only need simple sandals to slip in and out of for traipsing between beach, bar and spa!

Hat
A flamboyant sun hat is not to be forgotten. The wide brim will provide valuable protection from the sun and will make you feel extra stylish. Etsy and Oxfam have some great vintage sun hat options but the one above was my favourite with it’s bright swirl of lush colors.

Travel Outfit


trousers + any top + cardigan + pashmina + pretty sandals

Casual Day

1) top + shorts / skirt + sandals
2) blouse + shorts / skirt + sandals

At the Beach / Chilling Out
casual dress + beach sandals

Sightseeing Day

Dress Up
1) evening dress + heels or sandals + pashmina / scarf
2) blouse + trousers + heels or sandals

Vintage Interior Design Ideas for Bedrooms

As soon as I glimpsed this stunning bedroom, I was ready to jump into the picture and call the room mine. The enchanting style of the bedroom also inspired me to find some vintage items that conveyed a similar pretty, hippy, boho vibe.

Vintage Silk Satin Material
Create the boho-luxe look in your bedroom by draping this ‘unused length of vintage off white silk satin’ over your bed or chair. The pink flowers and green leaves are bedazzled in sequins and beads and make this fabric look super sweet.

Antique Fan Shaped Victorian Brass Letter Holder


This would also look incredible as a jewellery stand. Try draping necklaces and hanging earrings over this gorgeous brass letter holder for an unusual but beautiful way to display your favourite jewellery.

Vintage Victorian Fan Fabric


Such an unusual print that would look divine for any decorative purpose. This 1970s fabric is available in four sample sizes so swoop in quickly.

Vintage Fenton Pink Satin Glass Umbrella
This is bizarre and beautiful and would make the ultimate, too-cute-too-be-true decoration. The Etsy seller suggests using it as a candy dish and for $12, I’m sure you’ll find some use for this ultra pretty piece.

Vintage Striped Silk and Cotton Fabric
The Country Living bedroom appears to have many luxe fabrics draped over the bed and I thought this beautiful red and pink colour combined with the sheen from the satin stripes would create a similar decadent look. Perhaps you could use the fabric for a pillow or to create a lovely throw or blanket?

Vintage Hand Crocheted Lace Collar
There were a few lace throws and tablecloths to be found on Etsy but this delicate lace collar in antique rose really stood out the most to me. Imagine sewing this onto a little dress or top. It would look stunning!

Vintage Chandelier Clip On Earrings
Vintage chandeliers can certainly be found on Etsy, online and offline but to keep prices reasonable today, I thought chandeliers in the form of earrings may be the next best option.

Vintage Large Black Victorian Boot Vase


I’m so smitten with this quirky shoe vase. I was searching for a black vase similar to the one in the Country Living photo and stumbled across this instead. Such a strong, decorative piece like this black shoe vase offsets the pink and feminine style of the bedroom wonderfully.

Vintage Cranberry Glass Vase
Continuing on with the pink theme from the Country Living picture, this impressive, cranberry coloured glass vase would make the perfect partner to a bouquet of fragrant flowers.

Earthborn White Clay Paint
Made in the UK


If your bedroom or house require a lick of paint, try a toxin (VOC) free paint such as this one from Earthborn. For an even greener option you could try Earthborn’s Casein Paint. It comes in powder form and is ‘free of VOCs, acrylics, oils,’ solvents and titanium dioxide. You just need to mix the powder with water and you can also add the Earthborn pigments if you want to get truly colourful. Visit Earthborn Paints for further information.

I know this ring’s gold banding is slightly tarnished but I think it adds to its vintage charm and prettiness. It’s a little cluster of loveliness!

It’s truly unique (and affordable).
