One year has passed since I try to practice veganism. It’s never been really tough and there have only been a few moments where I fight steak appetite vs. tofu pleasure. However I would rather call myself a dietary vegan with an tendency to environmental veganism than a strict ethical vegan. This is probably due to the fact that I love leather shoes and bags, my cashmere scarf from Nepal and my silk dresses from India. There are just way too many beautiful design & fashion products of which most are made of animal products. Restricting myself to vegan fashion would men that there are no nice things left, right? Right? NO! While dealing with the if-at-all’s and how’s of converting to a 100% vegan lifestyle I came across many wonderful products.

Why do I love Ben Toms’ photography? His work is always so elegantly pure and dramatically textured at the same time. The lightening is beautiful and makes every shot look fragile. Gorgeous!
Are you also feeling blue about this weather with temperatures similar to the Arctic and too much snow that I personally can’t stand wearing my winter boots any longer. Well, let me brighten up your mood as there is some magic to the wide white winter landscape: the spectrum of wonderful blue shades.
And why is ice blue? I don’t care as long as it’s pretty.

It already seems like ages ago that everybody got all fancy and glittery for New Year’s Eve. As I couldn’t resist the little black dress that night I have to catch up with the golden times now. And as I fancy everything that sparkles anyway I might just make it a resolution to brighten up my day with little golden accessories every now and then in 2012. So this week I’m brightening my inspiration with some neat ideas.

Reindeer-theme is the name of the game this week. Somehow freezing days and white landscapes always remind me of our Swedish darling from Lapland. Antlers and black button eyes have lately become a favorite and I have added some de[e]r findings to my collection.

As the days are getting shorter and the nights are reaching freezing, I am in good spirits for some color. I am not only talking about home decoration or clothes but I want to sink into a world of deep, warm, delicious cranberry red. I didn’t realize until now that I love this color so much. Speaking of delicious, the recipe of smitten kitchen inspires me to eat at least one colorful reddish food a day until Christmas. How does Warm Beetroot & Quinoa Tabbouleh sound to you?

Die Illustrationen von Jen Hsieh sind mir gleich aufgrund der Farbenkraft aufgefallen. Neben den knalligen Tönen, sind vor allem auch die Gesichter ein Highlight. Zusätzlich zu alltäglichen Themen und Familien Situation, kommen häufig auch Fashion Szenen in ihrem Portfolio vor.
The illustrations of Jen Hsieh caught my attention immediately because of the intensity of color. Despite the bright shades, the faces are a real highlight, too. In addition to daily life scenes and family situation, the subject matters also include fashion topics.
