With the sunshine comes a new post lockdown world. From gorgeous bronzers to techy new water bottles and stylish handwashes, this is everything we love in July.
Many of us are finding new freedoms to appreciate now that lockdown measures are being reduced. Maybe you’re planning an intimate dinner party and need some adorable new table linen? Why not pep up your daily exercise with a new, germ killing water bottle? Or revitalise old loves with a pretty personalisation service? Whatever you’re doing, we hope you’ll catch up with our Founder Lucy in the next season of Style With Substance, coming out at the end of July.
We’re Still Washing Our Hands
Although lockdown measures are being eased, it’s still important to make sure you wash your hands at every available opportunity. But not just any hand wash will do. Why not use one thats organic, vegan and comes in a stylish recyclable bottle? Soapsmith’s elegant range of hand care products upgrade any bathroom situation. Plus we love that each one is inspired and named after a different area of London.
We’re Supporting Small Sustainable Businesses
Following on from the success of our Support Small Sustainable Business Newsletter this is a new addition to the monthly newsletter. Natalie Perry has been a friend of The Vendeur since our inception. A skilled jewellery designer and maker, she also works in fashion PR so theres not much she doesn’t know about Jewellery. Her beautiful pieces are hand made using only fairtrade gold and sustainably sourced stones. We are in love with her new pearl earrings. They are a simple way to dress up a t-shirt and jeans while on video calls.
We’re Getting Our Bronze On
Add a healthy glow to your cheeks with these beautiful bronzers. Apply to your forehead, nose and cheeks where you would naturally catch the sun. Or use small amounts on the inside corners of your eyes to add a glamorous element. Whether you prefer to swish it on with a big brush, or pat a cream onto the high points of your face, these bronzers are the best you’ll find.
We’re Personalising Our Wardrobe
Two of our favourite ladies have teamed up to bring a very special service to life. ‘Something Old, Something New’, is the brainchild of Charlie Collins of CC Creative Wardrobe and Sophie Rist of Agnes LDN. Charlie sources vintage treasures in need of a little magic and Sophie personalises them. You can even have your own pieces personalised by the team. The Summery colours are an instant mood lifter, plus your piece is now totally unique.
Prices start from £35 for your own piece and £65 for Charlie to source your item. Sign up here.
We’re Listening to Style With Substance Season 2
Yes thats right, we’re back for the next series at the end of this month. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to season one then you can do that now. You can subscribe on all great podcast platforms including Apple, Google, Stitcher and Spotify. We have some fab guests already lined up and we’ll be continuing to plumb the murky depths of sustainable fashion and call out greenwashing.
We’re Reimagining Prairie Style Dresses
When unloved and discarded fabrics are given a new lease of life it makes our hearts sing. Prairie dresses make the perfect second life for such beautiful fabrics. The ruffles and modest hemlines never go out of fashion and can be worn with sandals in summer or knee high boots in winter.
We’re Dining In Style
Not only are they our favourite wedding and event planners, now Luminosa offer a Home collection too. Everything Luminosa do is inspired by the season, they use vegetable scraps and foraged flowers to create their unique dyes. Choose from beautiful hand dyed napkins, hand rolled beeswax candles, dried flowers and ceramics. Everything you need to lay the most enviable table in town.
We’re Quenching Our Thirst
Does your water bottle purify your water? If it does, we bet that it doesn’t do it quite as well as LARQ. Their patented technology uses UV light to purify the water in your bottle. In 60 seconds it eradicates 99.9999% of bacteria and viruses without the use of filters meaning you can be sure the water you’re drinking is safe without the hassle of replacing filters. The new Terra collection is inspired by nature with 4 new colourways.
