White Stuff Give Away

16 04 2012 Happy World

"White Stuff" just opened his first shop outside the United Kingdom in Copenhagen. I had never heard of them before and I instantly liked, what I saw. The shop design is so well thought through - there is love and joy in every little detail. Hooks are decorated with little birdies, wood(!)-hangers with clothes made out of their own signature prints let you know that there is " Happiness in every stitch", adorable tags  - there is even an awesome little retro theater for your enjoyment! All rooms feel totally homey, original and believable. I also like a lot the story behind this brand. Two guys who loved the snow and skiing so much that they sold T-shirts to finance their sport - that's how they started. Today they say:

We love clothes - We love color - We love to laugh! Isn't that a wonderful business philosophy???

And here is my White Stuff Give Away for you: A super cute little red Tweety Coin Purse(meanwhile completely sold out!) and an awesome Purdy Star Bracelet perfect for spring and summer!

Please enter a comment below to participate in the raffle. 

if you like, let me know who or what YOUR little gem is... 

And if you also like, like on FB!

Thanks so much for joining the fun!

P.S. The birdie purse reminds me of another little birdie who just recently spread his wings to find a new home... :) 

Hildegard of Bingen raffle

12 03 2012 Market day

She was very wise and versatile.

We don't actually know exactly when Hildegard of Bingen lived - about 850 years ago - but we know from her notes what her interests were.

The abbess engaged in music, religion, ethics, cosmology and the power of nature. Self-responsibility for one's own body is a central point in her comprehensive work.

It's said, that she was a very confident and charismatic woman.

Especially her knowledge in the area of nutriton is astoundingly up-to-date these days.

Today hardly any guide book on the subject of diet, wellness, health and well being doesn't cover the importance of natural supplementation, homeopathy, herbs and spices in connection with a holistic approach.

"Your soul loves moderation in all aspects of life. Thou shalt nourish thyself moderately to be happy and sociable." says Hildegard of Bingen.

Yes, moderation is definitely worth applying to our life styles today. Less is more. And many already do so with retreating from too much media consumption for example.

People are fasting and detoxing.  

We want to eat less. A dish doesn't need to have 20 different ingredients any more. Simple and good is the new opulent. But with culinary pleasure.

That's totally along Hildegard's ideas.

All her dishes contained herbs and spices. 

One of her favorite was Galgant.

It's a root similar to ginger with a warm, sweet and spicy aroma. Delicious in Thai-currys and soups and sweets.

Or Ysop, the "sacred" herb. Slightly bitter, minty and should be cooked or baked.

Are you curious by now?

Thanks to Sonnentor  I have two great Hildegard products containing those two herbs and spices for you to win today!

I picked the Energy Tee and the Energy cookies for you to spice up your start into spring! 

Of course - like always with our Sonnentor raffles - there will be a few tasty extra goodies in your winner package...

If you would like to participate please leave a comment until March 18th.

I am curious as well - have you ever tried a Hildegard product before?
