New Year, New You? Maybe not, but theres no reason you can’t keep trying. From Valentine’s treats, to the best running kit and some amazing new launches, here’s what we love in February.

Now that the January Blues are out of the way, it’s time to really get stuck into the year. February represents a new opportunity to pursue those resolutions. If you failed at the first hurdle then try again, no one will know (or judge). February is also a time for romance. Whether you celebrate Valentines, or Galentines Day, or none of the above, you can still enjoy loving yourself. Here is our guide to the new releases and exciting happenings this month.

We’re listening To

‘Shaping the Future of Sustainability and Fashion by Regent Street’ podcast hosted by Elizabeth Day. We love Elizabeth’s podcast ‘How To Fail’ so we were really excited to listen to her podcast with Regent Street. This episode is a real goodun, featuring her chat with Bottletop Co-Founder Oliver Weyman, journalist Kate Finnigan and Cyndi Rhoades who founded Worn Again Technologies. They talk recycling, reusing and the general state of fashion today. Well worth a listen on your commute. 

We’re On The Run

Get your blood pumping and your mind zen by heading out for a run. Whether you head to the park, the beach or simply round the block, do it in style with these great new additions for January. Timberland and Arket both offer great technical pieces made from recycled fibres. And for added breathability, we love Indigo Luna’s beautiful organic cotton leggings. 

We’re Lusting After 

These beautiful earrings by Helene Turbe. Don’t wait to be treated this Valentines day, they make a perfect little treat for yourself. After all, you made it through January so why not celebrate with a little sparkle? These handmade earrings have a little pop of ruby red set into yellow gold.

We’re Supporting an Epic Partnership

Tretorn has partnered and Sea Life Trust to create this practical but crucial collection. Consisting of outerwear and accessories, the items are made from Econyl fibre and recycled PET and rubber. Tretorn are donating 10% of the retail price of each product to SEA LIFE Trust to help them continue to protect our oceans.

We’ll Be Blushing This Valentines Day

In Vapour’s new beautifully packaged range of makeup. Their super light textures are so comfy to wear. But better yet, the range contains 70% organic certified ingredients with 30% minerals and vitamins. The new range includes a few re designed old favourites, but we are in lust with this beautiful blush powder. Simply brush on and watch the heads turn.

We’re Catching Some Winter Sun

If you have a little jaunt to sunnier climates planned, lucky you. Hopefully you already have a totally appropriate swimsuit you can pack (the most sustainable pieces in our closet are the ones we already own). However if you are in need of something fresh, we love this zingy edit of eye catching one pieces. Simply add an outrageous sun hat and sandals and you’re good to go. 

We’ll be Browsing

Zalando’s new ‘Small steps. Big impact,’ collection. Featuring 9 uber chic Nordic brands, it follows the release of Zalando’s Sustainability Strategy entitled ‘do. MORE’. Did you know they were a carbon neutral company? The collections are discerningly stylish and perfect for Spring. Not only are the colours to die for but all the designers have utilised a range of sustainable fabrics including recycled polyester, OEKO-TEX certified prints and organic cotton.
