I really hope you’re enjoying the new pictures lately, I want to share every single shot that Simon Way shot during the Votch New Collection photoshoot campaign. They’re honestly so good I wish every picture on my Instagram (@marta_canga) and my blog had pictures this good.
I’m no expert by any means, but here are some tips I thought I’d share with you to give you that boost of confidence when you feel like your body is not coping with your mood. They work for me, but they might not work for you. So read along and tell me in the comments if you do any of these!
Say hello to my new Matt&Nat bag, that I showed you in my vegan bag wishlist here. Matt&Nat is a brand that I discovered when I was transitioning into a vegan closet. They have many resellers in the UK, but I must admit that buying online is the best option for me, as they have so many different models and colours…! This is the Scarlett model, and it’s an eco-friendly and vegan bag, and its lining is made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles.
Finally, these gorgeous shoes from Bourgeois Boheme have already been featured in previous posts (click here and here), but I just can’t believe how comfortable, sleek and beautiful the Olivia model is. Bourgeois Boheme’s shoes are made with innovative microfibre PU vegan leather and seed-based biopolyoil linings. Handmade with love in Portugal, these beauties are the epitome of eco-chic and wonderfully designed.

Now let’s talk about the good news. More and more people realise today the level of cruelty of these practices, among which, myself. That’s why today I’m showing you an entirely vegan and eco-friendly outfit that I’m really proud of!
There are many ways you can shop consciously, but let’s start with accesories, which are the easiest for me. There is a new kid in town called Bourgeois Boheme, and they specialise in vegan and ethical shoes. The quality is INSANELY good, and when you open the box, you can even smell the leather, but it’s not! Well, actually it is. Not animal leather, of course, but plant leather. Say what?
Bourgeois Boheme is a London-based brand, created by an ex-pediatrist named Alicia. The shoes are made in Portugal in a sustainable manner, and is one of the most established vegan footwear brands out there. For their vegan leather, they use:
Many high-street stores also make leather-imitation goods, like my skirt. However, these ones are often made with PVC, a plastic that contains chloride and is not bio-degradable.
