The Weekend Series: five visually striking indoor plants for beginners (that aren’t succulents)

If you aren’t enough of a responsible adult yet to care for a pet or child, there is always one option for sating your paternal instincts. A plant doesn’t talk back, nor does it cry at odd hours of the night. If you are keen to start caring for a leafy baby or two, we suggest branching (get it?) out and going with a plant that is a little bit different than your run-of-the-mill succulent. We’ve picked five plants to start with that are not only easy to care for but also fun to look at. more

Treat your skin to plant-based purity with Saya Skincare

Your skin is technically your largest organ, so it makes sense to take darn good care of it. The market is flooded with all manner of products that promise everything from eternal youth to a blemish-free face, but often these bigger brands are packed with gnarly chemicals – not to mention that a lot of cosmetic giants still test on animals (the absolute worst). Saya Skincare is here to save the day, offering a range of certified organic and plant-based products that proves nature really is the ultimate healer. more

Misfit Apparel takes cues from 80s true grit with its DEEPRESSION drop

The 80s were a period of total contrast – every saccharine pop jam had its brooding indie counterpart or aggressive rock and roll protest anthem. It was such an exciting time from a cultural perspective, so it’s no surprise that some of the most innovative and exciting fashion from the present day is influenced by the decade. DEEPRESSION is the latest collection from Sydney streetwear label Misfit Apparel, taking cues from punk-rock grit and everyone’s favourite outspoken role model – Henry Rollins. more

Double up on denim with this new winter edit from Morrison

It was touch and go for a few years there, but we think it’s safe to say that there is officially nothing wrong with double denim. Gone are the days where a jean and jacket combo would have you drawing raised eyebrows (we love Justin Timberlake, but he nearly killed the movement in 2001). In 2017 the pairing can actually be a sartorial masterstroke. Morrison has just unveiled a new capsule collection of daring denim, perfect to double up or dress down. more
