Spring 2018 Capsule closet: The moodboard

Mar 19, 2018

I decided to create my very first capsule wardrobe for this spring (raise your hand if you're excited!!! Oh, and yes, I'm completely ignoring tht fact that it was snowing last weekend, spring is right around the corner folks!). It will be 35 pieces large (shoes and handbags included) and I'm sharing all of it this Friday. But today, I just thought I'd pop in with a super short blogpost about my spring moodboard.

My daily natural skincare routine.

Mar 9, 2018

Though natural beauty and skincare products are very much on the rise, they're still far from being mainstream. They're often more expensive than your regular drugstore or supermarket alternative, and definitely a leap from the brands we have all known and used for years. That's why diving into natural beauty, body and skincare products might feel a little risky to some.

I must say, I feel pretty damn good banning (certainly unnecessary but more probably harmful) chemicals from my daily routine. It's not as if I notice any shocking differences in my body, it's more of a mental thing. Like I feel safer using these products and also like I am taking care of my body in a more intentional way.

Anyhow, I'm not here to convince anyone of the pros of natural beauty products. I'm sure there are more than enough people who've already taken on that job and do it way better than I ever could. I'm just here to give some of my honest, independent and non-sponsered reviews on products that I recommend to anyone who is already interested in natural beauty, but doesn't really know where to start. I already talked to you about my favourite make-up products, and today I'm sharing some much loved bathing, body and skincare products.

How practising yoga daily has changed my life.

Mar 2, 2018

When I first started #Idle, I honestly couldn't have believed that I, the unfaltering Lazybones would ever manage to do yoga on the daily (okay, so if we're being really honest, my average is now 5 sessions of 15 to 60 mins a week - I'm still me, ya know!). In the beginning daring to be unapollegetically lazy and indulging in escapism, was more important to me than feeling more energised and balanced. And while I still think it's important to be a counterweight for our succes-driven society that centers around constantly being busy and is full of all sorts of distractions for the mind, I've found different, more thourough ways to fulfil that mission. And as you can already guess, yoga daily is a big part of that.

A Sustainable shopping guide pt. 2

Feb 16, 2018

To be sure, the offer of sustainable styles has vastly improved over the last few years. The days of tree-hugging fashions are happily far behind us. But still, finding brands that offer really fashion foreward pieces and at the same time make an effort to minimise their environmental impact and/or improve labour conditions for their manufacturers? Not always an easy job! That's why I started a small series in which I go on a quest to find brands that meet all of my standards.

Read Pt. 1 of this series right here if you hadn't already! Or head straight on to Pt. 2 for which I selected 3 brands and one multi-brand shop. Be prepared for some serious shopping cravings, because they all offer lovely pieces!

Winter 10x10 style challenge pt.2 (the recap)

Feb 9, 2018

I finished up the Winter 10x10 style challenge, hosted by Style Bee and Unfancy, a little later than most people who were parttaking. Due to uniform policy at work and hardly any out-of-home evening activities during the workweek, I had to spread it out over several weekends, but here we are. It's time for a recap!
