Me and Mats

Sometimes the worst things in life provoke a radical – but positive – change. That’s what happened to Astrid, founder of ME&MATS. Her story has a sad start: her son Mats was born too early and lost the battle for his life. Some time later she realized that those short moments with Mats may have been the happiest in her life. It also occurred to her that happiness is in little things, in cherishing moments. Just then and there, ME&MATS was born. With ME&MATS, Astrid sends that message to the word: enjoy life, find your delights in small things that happen, and choose all that gives you and the ones you love that great happy feeling. For Astrid, ME&MATS is a way of still having a part of Mats in her life, just to remind her – and you! – to stop rushing, to let go of the day to day stress  and seize the moment. ME&MATS is a 'whenever, wherever brand with a mission'. Their mission is to offer those special must-have-feel-good items, the ones that make you feel pretty. Accessories that bring a sparkle in your life! Beautiful necklaces, there's more, go have a look...I lovvve the power of semi precious stones...Carry always...with you and it will carry you...
She also sells cool bags, earrings, bracelets and there's much more to come..keep you posted...

Tomboy Cafe

I know i normally post about Amsterdam goodies...but this one i could not resist...Tomboy Cafe in Melbourne, don't you just wanna go there like immediately...Looks really cool...do you recognize yesterday's aprons..cool place, cool cups & hot coffee..."Tomboy is a quietly cool cafe with a focus on sustainability that is evident in both menu and fit-out.It is the creative progeny of Pia Hambour and Georgina March, the duo behind wholesale baking business Box Brownies, who have long been dishing up their sweet treats to Melbourne coffee institutions. Tomboy serves up a more extensive menu including their signature gluten free bakes with mainly vegetarian offerings with a strong focus on sustainability; sourcing produce seasonal from their own veggie patch and local suppliers.An old outdoor milk bar sign, a giant roll of butcher’s paper displaying the menu and the vintage speaker system built in to the brick counter are just some of the cool detailing Tomboy puts up. These re purposed items are reflective of the pair’s creative flair, which also extends to their new publication, the Tomboy paper that covers Collingwood goings on, and a wall dedicated to showcasing the works of local artists."So who's goin with me to Melbourne...
