Eco Chic Greetings Card: Magic!

This beautiful card has been made by a friend of mine, Patricia. It’s not exactly a greeting card but an invitation reminder -as the content is free, I love the way she designed the card’s itself and the display. The front page is an eye catcher, full of fine stars and a bigger one in the middle…

Once you open it, a mysterious door is waiting for you.

For me it’s a perfect greeting card, the content is amazing and the display is ingenious! All illustrations are handmade, this is why it makes this card kind of magic.

How it starts? Literally with a white sheet and a black pen: she first draw the illustrations inspired from the chalet style, then copied it on ticker paper sheet and did the card display.

What you also can do with empty wrapping paper rolls and lace rests, see it on my new Pinterest board and follow me there for loads of inspiring things.

Ethno Shades at Savannah Chic

If you live in Switzerland, you might have heard about the ‘Fashion Hotel‘ event, hosted in 25hours Hotel in October where each room was occupied by a fashion label. It’s been a very interesting time -and it’s also where another precious meet happened!

The label ‘Savannah Chic’ creates Afro-inspired jewelry since 2008 whose production is based on the principles of fair trade. The jewelry line is coming in gold and features a mix of materials inclusive fabrics, with modern design. I find that the collection is easy to wear in the daily life, it might be elegant or just casual. Well, that’s how Savannah’s spirit and values really appealed to me. Here are some styles of the current collection, shoot this week in Bern with a friend of mine.

Eco Chic Packagings for Gifts, Part 1

Countdown is on, if you guys already find your gifts you might now wonder what kind of paper and ribbon you should use… For my part, I stopped with this. Do you already noticed that all the fancy, colorful stuffs are not only expensive but also, most of the time, don’t show good taste?

With this in mind, it’s hard not to think about all the paper wastes that are going to be lost after Christmas. And you know what? Eco packagings are easy to find, and they can be CHIC as well. This is the first part of this topic, I styled for you some in black color. Here is what you can do with a glass jar, with crumpled up piece of paper and a black old tight!

Recycling: Kids’ Mittens from a Pullover

Last week I experienced something new after having reorganized my closet. December is not only the perfect time to clean up and to give but also to distance yourself from (old) things you loved, so what about combining these 3 things together? That’s what I did with this new recycling post: this winter you’ll find here more about the topic ‘Pullover recycling’ but for today, I propose you this DIY, ‘Kids’ Mittens from a Pullover’!

These are made from an old pullover, and I think it’s a really cute gift for a young mum! I love it even more because it’s neither blue nor pink, it’s striped with GREY & BLACK, and it has RED -stylish, right?
