The lovely girls at All My Finds have just launched their latest collection of recycled fashion – Pick & Mix.
As the girls say: “Treats for kids who know the score – it’s one thing to have good taste, (and we know you do), but when skies are grey and everyone around you is idling in neutral – there’s nothing like shocking colour.”
This line up of limited edition re-worked, re-made and re-loved outfits are all individual one offs of upcycled fashion, clothing with tantalising names to get your mouth watering from Apple Bon Bon to Orange Crystals, Chocolate Lime to Lemon Sherbet. If you have a love of vintage and a head for ethical fashion check out their latest creations and pick and mix your rockin’ outfits for Spring Summer 2012.

♥ I featured the lovely girls at All my Finds Vintage last year, and they continue to do amazing things! They are releasing some special Peter Pan collars and gorgeous illustrated cards for Valentines day, and they currently have a competition to win a unique outfit. I love their stuff and think the unique style of the ethial brand is just FANTASTIC. Send an email with the subject ‘win unique item’ to email@example.com by Feb 29th to be in with your chance. ♥ I have been a massive fan of LUSH ever since the early Cosmetics to Go Days (yes I am that old), and I am always impressed with their products and promotions. The Valentines inspired PS I Love you set is one to drop huge hints about…loving the vintage style box packaging, and the gorgeous products insides: It’s Raining Men creamy honey shower gel, Soft Coeur chocolate-honey massage bar, a limited edition Sweetheart soap & jasmine-scented Silky Underwear dusting powder.♥ Microsoft’s search engine Bing is showcasing the work of five small UK charities over 5 days this week to enable each cause to talk about the contribution they are making to the communities they work in. Additional information about the challenges which these charities seek to tackle are available by clicking on theBing homepage hotspots. There are some great causes being met by amazing people, and as an endo warrior I know how much awareness raising makes an impact.
♥ I have just finished reading an absolutely brilliant book by Katherine Dunn called Geek Love (Abacus Books). With a storyline about a family of freaks whose various disabilities were engineered by as many drugs during pregnancy as their carnival king parents could muster, the “dreamlets’ challenge our conception of beauty. The book has an incredible set of characters – Siamese twins, a bald albino hunchback dwarf, a limbless man who inspires a cult following to dismember – and for me the genius of the book was in the subtext and meticulously crafted writing. Definitely one to read, and as my copy sat next to my regular glossies it proved a thought provoking read. ♥
♥ You will find me this week on the Blur media blogs talking about Path and Google social search.
