A perfect day to wear my Hope Bracelet…
As much as I am a coffee drinking, make-up loving, bag collecting and things-that-just-look-nice-buying kind of person I rarely buy something without knowing WHAT I buy.

Like where the good is from, who’s made it and how it has gotten from where it was made to being in my hands (which often is quite a journey regarding most items in a regular shop). What strikes me though is that it is so hard to find sellers of my most precious and biggest shopping addiction that has considered that big “WHAT”. I am talking about jewellery (and as you may have seen mostly pearls). You find eco friendly shirts, coffee, cocoa, carrots and lipstick on everyday basis but what about jewellery? I can count the times I’ve seen a Fair Trade bracelet for example.
