The Objects Of Our Affection
Here are a few of our favourite things this month…
We love these crocheted plants and cactus from Emily Sian Hart. She makes and sells them alongside the cutest pot covers and storage baskets too. For any accidental plant killers in your life, this is the perfect gift for them. Buy from Emily’s Etsy store here.
2. We are obsessed by Emma McDowell’s handmade concrete wares. Often made from found or recycled materials, these pieces are stunning. From dishes to candle holders and clocks amongst many others, there is something for everyone. Buy from Studio Emma here.
3. Using environmentally friendly technology to source their water, AQUA Carpatica works directly with local authorities and wildlife conservation programs surrounding their water sources to make sure everything remains as they found it. They also make the promise that no chemical pollutants are in their water either. They can be bought in glass bottles or BPA free plastic ones (we say go for the glass ones). If you buy bottled water then we think AQUA Carpatica is your best bet, we love that they are looking out for nature as well as their customers. You can find out more about the water here and buy it from many shops including Tesco, Ocado and WH Smith.
4. Nude by Nature is an Australian brand and has just launched in the U.K. and we are already in love with their flawless foundation. It comes in a range of colours that will hopefully suit a lot of skin tones from dark to light. The coverage is medium to full with a more matte than dewy finish, but definitely not full matte. This gives your skin an even and flawless (hence the name) finish. For us it covered redness and spots without the need for a concealer and gave off a ‘our skin but better’ vibe. It dries fast on your face though so we recommend applying a small amount at a time and buffing into your face with a brush. Full coverage foundations are pretty hard to come buy in the clean beauty world and they normally have a crazy large price tag, so this is why we are so excited to share this more affordable option.
