I’ve been itching to break out my collection of summer jumpsuits but unfortunately, even though it’s late June, the need for dressing in layers is still mandatory in the humid rainy chill of Berlin.
Fortunately I discovered a quick and easy clothing item that looks fabulous while keeping the chill away:
A magnificent flannel shirt = a cozy jumpsuit topper that provides some groovy pattern mixing too!

But what about my fancy new glasses?
As you may have read here, my inbox is filled daily with unsolicited “
job offers” from companies wanting me to endorse their brand in exchange for products (most of which are completely against the clear upcycling & ethical style message of my blog). I rarely open these copy/paste style e-mails and have never actually considered taking an offer until I was oh-so-politely and personally approached by a representative from Firmoo.com, a global online optical store.
As I have needed a new pair of glasses for quite some time I decided to do a bit of research into the company and discovered that not only are their glasses stylin’ and their prices incredibly reasonable but, more importantly, their products are ethically produced. (+ the virtual frame selector is awesome!)
I selected my frames, uploaded my prescription and my fancy new glasses arrived in less than a week complete with a hardcase, softcase, screw driver & cleaning cloth!
Will I take part in more blogger/brand collaborations in the future?
Perhaps, if the company is ethical and I can honestly endorse their product. I am certainly grateful that blogging brought me the opportunity to discover Firmoo and score a pair of new glasses to help reduce my work-related migraines!
