#IndieLove: 6 Awesome Stranger Things Themed Gifts

Super excited for the return of Stranger Things to Netflix this month, in celebration I thought I’d whip together a bunch of ace fan art related products that you might like. Naturally, these are all from indie and small businesses, so the best kind of people to shop from in my opinion. I’m really not a fan of fan art that is too obvious or reproduces content from the original source too closely, so I hope you’ll enjoy my more abstract approach to this list.

#IndieLove: 6 Independent Fashion Brands to Check Out…

I am so bored of seeing Primark and Topshop hauls from bloggers, it does not excite me in one bit. Shopping with these big corporate companies that deal in fast fashion and often low ethics isn’t for me anymore. When I buy a product I want to be supporting more than just a cool item, I want to know that I’m helping a small or indie creator continue to do what makes them happy. I feel like all of our spending would make a much greater positive impact on society if we spent more with independent businesses and less with big chains. And that concept can apply to any category that you want to make a change in, not just fashion.

So, in this spirit, I wanted to share a little wish-list of some cool fashion stuff I’ve seen recently that aren’t from the obvious places and why you should check out the associated brand or creator. There’s so much cool stuff out there, we need to do more to give them the love the deserve. There’s a few Etsy affiliate links in here, so if you do choose to shop something I’ve recommended, I’ll get commission and that will in turn help me continue to create cool content and art. We all have bills to pay, this way everyone wins.

AparTTogether – skate inspired socks from┬áBarcelona

I really like what this brand puts out there, they just launched this cute star print pair and started selling this cute star and moon design. They’re an eco-friendly brand that cares about the people they work with. They are heavily inspired by the skate culture of Barcelona too. What’s not to love? Check out their store on Etsy here.

I HAZ MERCHT…

One of the most frustrating things as a creative person is having an idea which you don’t have the time/energy/money to see through to the end. For me personally, it’s always a massive de-motivator which has frequently stopped me from starting projects in the first place, which is of course, puts you back at that cycle of wanting to do something but not quite getting there. So, to help me get over that barrier, I’m pleased to announce my first Mercht campaign, which is live for the next 8 days only, you can find it here.hamburger-steven-by-jayne-kitsch-on-mercht-3

#IndieLove – Oh Deer Sugar: Australian Based Bath & Body Bakery

Another brand that I’m not sure how I stumbled upon, I think I found them on Instagram originally and totally dug their concept. Oh Deer Sugar is an Australian based brand run by two vegan friends Shani & Nikki and they’ve been baking up non-edible bakery goods since 2013. They now have an Adelaide based store, a totally divine Instagram account and an online shop that normally offers international delivery.

#IndieLove Day 11 – La Vidriola Acrylic Jewellery from Spain

Here’s another brand that I can’t even tell you how I found them, it was another stumble upon on Instagram style story and I instantly fell in love. La Vidriola are based in Valencia in Spain, but ship worldwide, they’re made up of Pablo & Blanca, essentially a Spanish version of the awesome Sugar & Vice but with their own look and aesthetic. I haven’t shopped with these guys yet, but the wishlist is as long as my S&V list.
