The Arya Sense Giveaway

After spending most of January in wonderful Thailand,
coming home felt a bit unpleasant, to put it mildly.
Reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle (highly recommended!)
helped me overcome the funk and bring more awareness, peace and joy into my life.

I intend to resume more or less regular blogging soon, but until then, here's a giveaway.
In collaboration with Arya Sense, we're giving one lucky duck their handmade,
oversized, asymmetrical black top in size S (click here for measurements).

To participate, simply head over to Arya Sense shop, browse the items
and leave a comment with a link to your favorite item under this post.
If you share this post on your blog/website or one of your social networks,
let me know in your comment as well to receive an additional entry.

Please don't forget to leave your email so I can contact you in case you win.

The giveaway is open internationally until March 13.

The 2014

The year in passing was marked by black and white in my closet
and colors on my plate - just the way I like it.
Looking forward to new adventures and wishing you the same!

The Coat

After a period of frantic, nerve-wracking, and ultimately unsuccessful searching for a winter coat
that would meet at least the most important, if not all of my criteria,
I ended up having it custom-made.

The project was taken on by BeeZee EcoKid, a Slovenian-owned vegan brand
with a set of principles that can be summed up as ethical.
Seriously, there are so many nice things to be said about them that I don't know where to start.
To emphasize the qualities that resonate with me the most,
their designs are vegan, fair trade, exploitation-free, organic and non-toxic, sustainable, and made locally.

I'm very happy with the way my coat looks and feels, but there's also an added value -
knowing it was made without doing harm gives me a certain sense of contentment and peace of mind.
