Blogger Spotlight: Honestly…WTF

I haven’t made myself a bracelet since high school, but I’m excited to try to make these.

I discovered Honestly…WTF while browsing on Pinterest. The detailed step-by-steps for DIY bracelets on the site are amazing. So much so that I may just have to go bead-shopping this weekend…

Blogger Spotlight: Sincerely Hana

{Check out all Switcheroos}

All of the photos on Hana’s photo blog are beautiful. But I especially enjoyed going through all the switcheroos: photos of couples who then pose for the same picture wearing each other’s clothes.

These must be a blast to take and they’re so fun and entertaining!

P.S. If you live in Vancouver, you could take part! Check out her site for details here.

I think this is a great idea! I only found out about this challenge today, so I’m officially 3 days late, but I’ve decided to catch up and do it for the entire month. I’ll be posting the photos on Twitter via Instagram, and on Facebook.

Wishing everyone a great weekend! xo

The Auction Project

This project  is my friend Lina’s baby, and it’s a great new concept for learning about and buying single pieces of art created by emerging artists.

In her own words, “it is a published catalogue dedicated to representing single artworks made by young and emerging artists. The catalogue is produced in a traditional auction catalogue format, documenting the artwork and artists with short essays and providing market values. However, with the intention of creating a new platform for appreciating and purchasing artwork, The Auction Project catalogue itself is the vehicle for appreciating and purchasing the artwork.  That’s right, there is no auction. The “The Auction Project” name relates only to the format of the publication and not to how the artworks are sold. The catalogue’s essays as well as its images allow art enthusiasts and prospective buyers to learn about the artist and context of the artwork in a familiar, but different setting.”

So there you have it. You can tune into all the updates by visiting The Auction Project’s blog.

Blogger Spotlight: The Soap That Saves

{Find out more about MeSoap here}

I recently signed up for LovingEco, where I was introduced to these new & earth-friendly soaps. They immediately turned into my first purchase.

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the TOMS shoes donation model: “with every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need.”  Well, in a similar way, MeSoap donates a bar of soap to a child in need for every bar of soap that we buy.

This is such a simple yet wonderful concept.  What’s even better, MeSoaps are 85% organic, artisan soaps and they come in 5 amazing scents (I purchased the 3 pictured above).

In addition to smelling great, these handmade soaps are 100% natural, vegan, not tested on animals, made with organic oils and ingredients, and contain no man-made chemicals or synthetics.

Check out the MeSoap store on Amazon, and let’s contribute however we can to make this world of ours a better place.

PS. The blog  shares some eye-opening data on how something so little can make such a big impact. It also lets you keep up with the company’s progress.
