How awesome is this place? Besides all organic veggies, beans & grains, Unpackaged - a north London grocery store - placed itself on the front line of the plastic bag revolution.
It works like this: you need to bring your own jar, pot or bag, choose the product and amount you want and voilà! Easy and simple!
CowParade is the largest and most successful public art event in the world. These events have been staged in over 50 cities worldwide since 1999. Here in São Paulo, CowParade just started. For two months really colourful cows designed by different artists will decorate the city. I just love this project!
Here you can see all of them.
Last year I had the pleasure of meeting this great atelier called ToGroundControl. The people behind this atelier are two cute and awesome girls, Juss and Vanessa Bá, who I can now call friends!
If you are in São Paulo please stop by at Rua dos Cariris, 421 - Pinheiros. Really worth a check!
PS. these photos were taken by Juss, who apparently besides being a fashion designer is a great photographer too!!
Maria Celeste Chad is the responsible for the Brazilian organization called Orientavida (freely translated as Lead life). The goal of this organization is to teach women from a village in São Paulo country side, to sew, to crochet and embroidery technique.
Those women produce really beautiful products such as bags, cushions, table cloths, towels and many other cute items.
I'm in love with these items above, you can get all of them on line here.
I just discovered this awesome project that offers amateur and professional photographers a new platform to share their work, making really cool tees with really cool photos.
If you are a photography lover, get your t-shirt here and also check to the Oh Snap blog to get to know a lot of great photographers.
I have to say here that I got a lot of inspiration to start this blog from All Things Ordinary.
Dear Kara you were my mentor without knowing it! Besides the blog, All Things Ordinary is a zine. If you love photography like I do, you should get it. I got mine before Christmas, but I just had time to post about it now. Enjoy and get yours here.
So I'm back in Brazil with an awesome surprise in my mail. This fantastic zine, a compilation of 12 issues of Lost, from 1998 to 2008. Such great work by Eyeone, who designed and published it.
To know more about Lost, there's a good article here.
