The Ribbon Project

             
  A few months ago I was contacted by Angela&Roi, an online handbag brand that promotes philanthropic campaigns through their products, in respect to their ‘Donate by Color’ campaign; you can read more about it in THIS post. Promoting their project was an absolute pleasure seeing as I think they do such a great job in showing that fashion is so much more than just expensive bags and skinny models - that if you want to you can put all that to the use of a great cause.  

Therefore, you can imagine that I was more than pleased when they introduced The Ribbon Project to me. This project is aimed to bring you closer to Cancer and disease fighters. Each purchase made on AngelaRoi.com will be accompanied by a postcard with the story of a cancer or disease fighter. Once you have received your purchase you can write a thoughtful message on it and share it on Facebook and Instagram (@AngelaRoi) using the hashtags #ribbonproject and #angelaroi. Moreover, the most important aspect is that the project is not only aimed at buyers. Even if you didn’t buy an Angela&Roi bag you can also write to them via Facebook HERE and your message will be handwritten on a card and delivered to the patient. I was very touched to see how many people have written get well messages and supported this project on Facebook. It is reassuring to see that in the midst of all this running and worrying about our jobs and daily problems we can stop for a second and support this cause that truly highlights that there are definitely more important things in life than those.


Make sure to visit Angela&Roi and check out The Ribbon Project HERE. I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Canadian Tuxedo

Here you have my interpretation of a Canadian tuxedo - my dad said I looked like a Saint, one of my friends thought I resembled a nun in the picture above so please submit your thoughts too haha. Not sure why, but I have been all about denim lately, especially paired with low-key pieces like plain t-shirts and sneakers. I came across these Vans slip-ons that I've had for an alarming period of time - almost 6 years I think. I remember buying them during one of my skiing trips to Austria, being immediately drawn to the burgundy velvet and I am glad I did because I have yet to see a similar pair anywhere around. I am still surprised that purchases made during my teenage skate phase would ever become 'fashionable'. (Slip-ons at least, I still have to get rid of my pink polka dot skater shoes) 

Although my evening was cut short that day and a picnic cancelled because of a summer storm, I can't be happier with the way these pictures turned out. The lighting was just incredible and I love the melancholic mood they effuse. Hope you enjoy!
