Everlasting Apparel – Kyla is Inspired

It’s Thursday, so it’s time for a new edition of Everlasting Apparel. It’s so much fun seeing which items people have loved for a long time. Today Kyla has been so nice to contribute something and she doesn’t only have one, but three staples she couldn’t live without. Thanks for sharing it with us, Kyla!

The Little Things – For The Love of Food

And another food post this week – I made scones on the weekend for the first time. I really love baking, which I guess is partly because I love eating what I’ve created, and also because I’m a sweet person (so I slightly prefer baking over cooking).

The downside is that you can’t constantly be eating sweet stuff like cake, muffins, waffles, scones, etc. I would love to, though.

If you decide to make scones sometime eat them straight out of the oven while they’re still warm. I love them with cream and strawberries (or strawberry jam) – the traditional way -, or with Nutella and cream (see photo). Sounds pretty healthy, huh?  ;)

Latrina Travels – A New Column

Hi! I’m Latrina, a blogger + photographer from Northern California. I absolutely love the outdoors so when Hanna approached me with the idea of having a travel column on her blog, I quickly jumped at the chance! If there’s anything to know about me is that I love exploring… and if I ever have the opportunity to share my stories all while convincing others to get out and do the same, I am a happy girl.
go explore // hanna's places
Immediately upon receiving Hanna’s email my brain went into overdrive with ideas. But I think the best place to begin this column is by defining what travel means and why it’s important. Some may think it means breaking the bank by spending a week in Hawaii but I’m here to tell you that is not the case! Travel simply means to take a journey. Whether that journey is across the globe or to your neighborhood park, I want you to make the best of it. Because, to me, exploring is when your heart is the happiest. (more…)

I opened an Etsy Shop – Hanna Ulala

EDIT: The Etsy shop is no longer active. If you are interested in one of the products though, I would still love to create one for you! Just send me a mail (hello@hannasplaces.com) for more details.

Remember how I said in this post, that I dreamed about opening an Etsy shop?

This weekend I did it! Let me introduce you to Hanna Ulala! I think I have been dreaming about having my own small Etsy shop for more than five years now. Some time last winter I went shopping and a woman asked me where I had bought the scarf I was wearing. It was actually a scarf that I had knit myself and this question made me remember my old dream and turn it into a definite plan to turn more energy into the project. When I started telling people about my idea I got so much support, so many questions and suggestions that the whole process felt like a breeze. Now it’s up with the first products and I’ve been feeling giddy all weekend long. I can’t even write properly, I’m so happy! I’ve got many more ideas in my head (stay tuned!), but here are the first products you can buy:

A Bright Idea – Stop The Water While Using Me

Today I want to bring another great eco-friendly brand to you, Stop The Water While Using Me! They’re from Hamburg and they sell organic cosmetics like shampoo and shower gel, but also toothpaste and even a toothbrush. All that without using silicones, paraffins and synthetic fragrances, preservatives or other resources that are mineral oil based (oh, and also without animal experiments). The goods are sold in refillable packaging. You can practically do nothing wrong from an eco-conscious point of view.
