“Always purchase two foundations. When you find your perfect shade (try it on your jawline), also choose a shade darker or lighter, depending on whether you tend to get more pale or tan. By mixing these, you’ll have the right shade for your skin tone for the whole year, which is how long the product is good for.”—

P.S. We are currently playing with Lavera, Sante and Jane Iredale foundations and always looking for new natural options. Let us know about your favorites below!
“If you dye your hair, but don’t have time to touch up your roots, part your hair zigzag-style instead of straight in the middle or side. This way you can’t tell your roots are a different color.”—
- Viola, Helsinki
PS. Natural hair dye is hard to find: we like Organic Care Systems and Aveda. The closer you stay to your own hair color, the longer your new shade looks good as your roots never show up as much. Both Annabella and I dye our hair every 2-3 months. We also always recommend going to a salon and finding a colorist you love!
PACT organic cotton undies have turned us BFF’s with boy shorts (undies from 22e, tanks 36e). After giving them a try, we realized how fantastically useful they are with shorter hemlines and can also easily be paired with pants. They are an absolute must for long flights. The bikini style is our favorite for nighttime and with longer dresses. The stripes look so chic on, you really have to try them on to believe it, and to ask your significant other for a second opinion:-)
PS. Our grandma told us ladies always need to wear matching underwear: what do you think? Following her advice, these tanks match a color in the stripes.
Check out the video we filmed during a Mexico trip about why these panties will rock your world and everyone else’s.
Blue is a perennially chic color fit for any occasion: a wardrobe staple from day to night. We are loving the chiffon and peace silk dresses, the matte blue over-the-shoulder bag and made-of-recycled-TV-screens peep-toe ankle boots and not just because our eyes are blue. Out of these options, you can find the perfect fit for any body type! Do you love blue as much as we do? Let us know what other colors you like to pair it with.
