Have a blissful week-end #8

Keukenhof Flower Fields in Holland by Conscious by Chloé

What are you up to this week-end? On Saturday, I'm going to vote to elect the next French president (wish us luck). Saturday also happens to be Earth Day, so I'll take some time to reflect on my impact on the planet and reevaluate some of my habits (less dairy, turn off electronics at night, water plants with rain barrel water, etc.). I hope you'll have a great one and in the meantime, here are a few links from around the web:

This French documentary (playing at the Living Room Theaters from April 21st).
This backpack.
101 ways to practice compassion and conservation for mother earth This drinking top.
A week of outfits.

Since many of you are reading this blog from not too far away, I thought I'd add a special segment at the end of my week-end recommendations, just for you. You can find more local & conscious tips and events on the Zero Waste PDX Facebook page.

Have a blissful week-end #7

Mason jar cozy by Conscious by Chloé

What are you up to this weekend? I'm at home with a cold and will spend the next two days taking care of myself and... working. I hope you'll have a great one and in the meantime, here are a few links from around the web:

I got one of these this morning to clear my sinuses.
It's time to register for the next food swap. Are there any in your area?
This interview.
I just discovered my new favorite online shop section, vintage + US made! Can you believe I do not own one of these?
I'll probably visit this pop-up later during the week-end if I feel a little better.
This album on repeat.
I'd love to stop by this new spot too for a little self-care but might just to go here for a steam.
I need all the comfort food.
Current life saver.

Watering plants by Conscious by Chloé

What are you up to this weekend? I'm going to a plant exchange tonight and attend an open studio on Sunday. Only good things to keep my mind off the fact that I'm in the middle of a 5-day juice cleanse (more on that in a later article). I hope you'll have a great one and in the meantime, here are a few links from around the web:

A fun way to practice your French.

I'm obsessed with these organic shaped planters.

I don't know whether I should get these or these.

Worn #5 / The Future is Female

The Future is Female Look by Conscious by Chloé

Last Sunday, I attended a late brunch with the one and only Sara Britton of My New Roots. The first time I saw her was actually half and hour before the brunch, when I saw her at one of my favorite Portland shops, asking about a boob print shirt.

This may not seem relevant at this point of the article, but the title might have already given you a hint.

As soon as I got in for brunch, a guest walked up to me to compliment me on my t-shirt (I get that a lot, thanks!), inquire about where I got it (Field Trip) and ask me whether I had seen the SNL skit about it the night before (I had not).

Long story short, feminine and feminist t-shirts are all the rage now and a fantastic conversation starter. Discussions spark with a little anecdote and can then lead to more profound exchanges about the current social and political climate and the uncertain future of female reproductive rights.

I am happy to report that I have now watched the show and decided that, in celebration of International Women's Day tomorrow, I would post this outfit which includes my beloved "The Future is Female" t-shirt.
