1. Life before death
Döstädning also known as the art of Swedish “death cleaning”, is the phenomenon in which the elderly and their families get their affairs in order before death. Be it dividing up the inheritance, downsizing to a smaller home, or meerly implementing a system to avoid loosing the house keys. Death cleaning is intended to make the last years of our lives more comfortable and with as little stress as possible. Independent of your age, Swedish death cleaning can be used to organise your life and to pay attention to what really matters.
2. G&T in the clouds
This mini kit is the perfect present for those take Gin and Tonic very seriously. Made up of a recipe card, a muddler, a jigger, Tonic Syrup and Linen Coaster.
3. The Perfect T-shirt
This divine Tee is both feminine and tough, the result of the collaboration between cult brand Sisterhood and GIRL WITH A KISS CURL. I would throw it on under a blazer with jeans and a blazer for a work ready look, that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
4. Our New Netflix Obsession
The new miniseries Collateral is a joint BBC and Netflix production, starting the Oscar nominated Carey Mulligan. With four hour long episodes, this British detective drama, presents a more “grass roots” style of police work, dealing with current feelings subjects like, racism, immigration, there is no Hollywood, wrapping everything up with a pink bow, style ending. Mulligan’s character, Kip, isn’t perfect, she doesn’t save the world, she isn’t battling personal demons. She is a professional woman working a murder case, with sensitivity, integrity and a quick wit, all the while 6 months pregnant, which, thankfully is just a fact, and not the story line. Expect drama and clever dialogue.
5. Anti Pollution
Urban ladies, this one’s for you! Keep your skin young, hydrated, vibrant and protected from the damaging effects of pollution, with this moisturizer with SPF 40 from Origins.
6. The Spice of Life
After spending half an hour looking for the rosemary in the kitchen cupboard, whilst simultaneously throwing away out of date pots, I decided that I needed a better way of storing my herbs and spice, hence this little number from Isabel Cristina Decor earned it’s spot on this month’s favourites!
7. Sand and City
This sand coloured playsuit from @pito.o is simple, chic, everything you need for day at the beach or in the sweltering summer heat!
8. More Jumpsuits
Whilst on the jumpsuit theme, the only problem I could find with LA brand @nooworks selection of jumpsuits, is deciding which beautiful printed piece I want more!
9. Winter Metals
Whilst we are on the way into winter here in Brazil, I’m certain this metalic bomber jacket from @lojayoucom will still get some airtime in the northern hemisphere over the coming months. I’m thinking bare legs and knee length denim skirt.
10. A Happy Place for your plants
