Nōskin is the new PETA-approved brand slinging high-quality vegan shoes and garments

Spring has sprung, friends, and you know what that calls for – a wardrobe refresh. A decluttering of the closet is good for the soul and once you've dropped those bags of unwanted clothes to your local op-shop, you may get the urge to replace what has been Marie Kondo'd. To reduce your carbon footprint this time around, it would be wise to shop a bit more sustainably and choose to buy ethical where you can. Helping you to do just that is vegan, PETA-approved clothing brand Nōskin, which is selling everything from Japanese selvedge denim to hemp clothing and leather-alternative shoes. more

Rent a party-perfect tablescape from The Box/d Society

Perhaps one of the more obvious calling cards of becoming a 'proper' adult is when you start to host dinner parties. Food, drinks and good friends usually make for a perfect combination for a dinner party but perhaps the most special ingredient is the table setting. Woefully, this can also be the most time-consuming and difficult aspect to perfect – and that's where The Box/d Society comes in. This fresh-faced company is taking the stress out of party planning with gatho-ready tablescapes delivered straight to your door. more

Live out your 90s dreams with Flowerbed Nails stickers

If we could time travel back to the 90s or early 2000s and place some of our favourite things in a time capsule that we could bring back to the future, you would probably find us running to our bedroom to grab our cans of Spice Girls Impulse, butterfly clips, So Fresh CDs and our favourite nail stickers. Well, we no longer need a time machine to get our hot little hands on the latter, as Flowerbed Nails stickers have just entered the scene. more

Hire a hot tub and screen movies in your backyard with help from Tubflix

After a particularly dry spell of theatrical releases in 2020, we are welcoming the return of the cinema experience in 2021. How we watch our movies has slightly changed though, with many of us preferring to stream films from the comfort of the couch or even going through our old DVD collections to rewatch classics of times past. If you're looking to spice up your viewing escapades, we have stumbled upon an entirely new film experience called Tubflix. Far from your average movie outing, this hot-tub cinema gets delivered straight to your backyard. more

Elastic fantastic – be kind to your hair, skin and nails with be. collagen supplement

We hope you're sitting down, folks, as we are about to give you a quick lesson on an all-important structural protein – collagen. For those not in the know, collagen is the protein in our bodies that forms the building blocks of bones, skin, muscles and just about everything in between. As we get older our stocks of natural collagen plummet, meaning more wrinkles and weaker muscles (ah, the joys of ageing). That's where new collagen supplement be. comes in. One spoonful of this stuff a day is said to increase your strength and your overall wellbeing. more

Plastic not-so-fantastic – ways to help you reduce your plastic reliance this July

Plastic has emerged as one of the greatest man-made environmental disasters of our time. Synthetic pliable polymers made from petrol have transformed the way we live – it's cheap to produce and long-lasting. Unfortunately for planet Earth, it is those very attributes that have cursed the eco-system as nearly every single piece of plastic ever created still exists in some form today. It has infiltrated every aspect of modern life – from the devices we are using to bring you this article to the cars we drive, the bottles that house our shampoos and cleaning products to the cling film that is keeping your lunch fresh in the fridge – it's all plastic and it will outlive you by a few hundred years. In a perfect world we would all pledge to go plastic-free for good, however, the reality is that it may not be possible to do all at once. Anne Marie Bonneau aka The Zero Waste Chef said it… more
