I love my luxury goods, simply because of great quality. Being a “poor” student, who constantly try to do the best for environment, animals and the human resources involved; I´m always questioning my choices and what I stand for. I´m far away from perfect, but I have really worked hard to become better, and I do everyday. I have therefore decided to not buy any new expensive leather bags anymore. From now on I buy new sustainable or  I buy second hand. A few weeks ago, doing some vintage/second hand browsing, I came over this beautiful brown leather hand bag, similar to the LV – NOE, but it was a Celine. Great quality, great price & second hand, I got it.

Buying second hand is for many a  negative experience, as you dont get a new product, you dont get the smell of a new product or people often assume that second hand is not of good quality or as good as new. All these aspects should be replaced with ALL the great values of second hand. There is a never ending list of them; Unique products, great quality – if it is “old second hand”, ethical and better for the environment and often money saving to mention a few.

Next time you doubt the second hand shopping, change your attitude.

My life the last two weeks have really just been work work work – study – study – study. As my manager / owner is away for holiday, I´ve worked pretty much full time the last weeks and trying to keep up with my studies.. So only a few highlights to share from this week.

Getting to see this view from work every day..

The last three weeks were holiday mode, which makes it harder to live as sustainable as I would do at home. The places we stayed at did not have recycling or you are in a country where the water is not safe, and you are bound to buy bottle water. I always bring my own recycled glass bottle everywhere I go. Then you can waist less plastic buy purchasing larger water bottles, and simply refill the smaller one you would carry around. A second great thing about glass (or other material than plastic) is that there is no dangerous chemical that are released into the water if the bottle would heat up. Carrying a water bottle also keep you hydrated and healthy.

– Better for you, better for the environment –

My favourite (one favourite) thing this week, was wearing these gorgeous wedge sandals, I´ve had them almost two years, and crazy enough this was the first time I actually wore them (as putting them on walking around the house for 10 min now and then, does not count). Strange how you can have such beautiful shoes in your possession and not had the right moment to wear them..

This holiday has been more about great locations and experiences than outfits, but I got one for you lovelies, I love dressing for the beach, but still feel like I can stop by a bar for a cocktail or a little shopping spree, which is essential on holidays without looking to “beachy”. This is from our stop in Noosa Heads, a little beach town close to Sunshine coast, QLD.

Our visit to Port Douglas – a Little town outside of Cairns. The entrance to the oldest rainforest in the world, how amazing. The coastline meet the forrest and its absolutely stunning up there. If you ever come to Australia, you have to go. Port Douglas is great for a relaxing beach holiday, and you get to visit the oldest rainforest in the world, see crocodiles in their own habitat and dive/snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.

My lovely friend got me this beautiful beach bag before my holiday, it has come in very handy, great size, can fit everything I need, it looks beautiful & the holes are big enough for all the sand to filter out again after a visit to the beach and it looks great not just for the beach, but for a little esplanade walk after.

Halfway through our tropical adventure, had no time for neither blogging or assessments, but here we go, one assessment done and a little update. The sunsets and scenery here in Queensland is so mesmerizing.
