Get soul with your soles!

by Naomi

If you're one of those that refuses to give up wearing summer shoes when Autumn arrives, then you will love TOMS shoes!

TOMS makes super funky espadrilles in all sorts of fabrics and patterns, and for every pair bought it gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need; one of the key causes of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted disease which can be caught through bare feet, not to mention the risks of injury and infection from walking barefoot.

There are classic designs like these black TOMS (£32):

Or graphic neon numbers like these by artist Gabe Lacktman ($68):

Or my personal favourites, these amazing glitter designs!

Get creative with the white TOMS (£32) and paint them with your own design - you could even host a Style Your Sole party and get all your girls/boys creating their own unique TOMS!

Just check out these pair customised by Regan in Texas - beautiful!

There are organic cotton vegan styles, leather styles and they even do a range of boots (because there are some days when you really can't get away with wearing canvas shoes!)

TOMS is setting a trend across the globe having made an amazing achievement and just given away its millionth pair of shoes!

Buy them from TOMS US or TOMS UK.

Chinti and at number 2

by Naomi

There is nothing more exciting about the changing seasons than the new fashion, especially when that new season means the end of summer and the onset of dark nights and chilly days! I much prefer to dream up new looks and lust over new fashion pieces!

Chinti and Parker is a brand that I discovered in Elle, and is one of my finds of the new season, hence it's place at number 2 in our Top 10 Organic Finds.

The brand launched in October 2009 with the vision of creating versatile luxury wardrobe staples. Organic cotton jersey separates and basics come in three easy-to-wear weights, oh and then there's the Cashmere pieces. Swoon.

Prices start at around £45 for t-shirts and £260 for knitwear, and are available direct from Chinti and Parker as well as a selection of London boutiques.

Organic beauty find - number 3!

by Naomi

Beauty find alert!!

I have to be honest, I don't often visit 'health stores'. I generally find them confusing/ dingy/ strange smelling and they make me feel guilty for eating food not made from lentils. But these issues are worth putting aside in the quest for great beauty products! I recently stepped foot inside a local health store seeking Calendulon ointment (great for spots, scars and grazes when you fall off your heels!) and was pleasantly surprised to find a great selection of Weleda products.

If you haven't tried any of them out, I thoroughly recommend you start with the Skin Food - it's AMAZING. It is a balm that moisturises lips, hands, elbows, body - pretty much everywhere. It soothes dry skin and is a great nourishing night moisturiser - just be warned a little goes a long way! It is also a great protective cream, so perfect for the harsh winter weather that lies ahead!

Made with organic sunflower seed oil, and extracts of wild pansy, chamomile, calendula and revitalising rosemary extract, it is number 3 in our Top 10 Organic Finds. Priced around £8.50 it could be one of the best beauty buy you make this season!

Available at health stores across the UK and at Weleda.

Get rockin in organic cotton...our number 5

by Naomi

From sturdy jeans and classic shirts to soft jersey tops and summer sundresses, nothing offers us wardrobe versatility like cotton; it washes well, wears well and can be layered and layered and layered and, well you get the picture. So at number 5 in our Top 10 Organic Finds is organic cotton.

Yes it is quite a big one, because buying organic cotton is one of the main things we can do as shoppers to help limit our environmental and social impact. Fortunately there are lots of brands making gorgeous organic pieces, which makes it easy peasy!

People Tree is a great go-to for organic cotton - just check these lovelies!

Fab for autumn, the Organic Cotton Jersey Cardigan is down from £30 to a bargainous £18! I am in love with the Organic Cotton Carrot Leg trousers which have just the right amount of draping (you don't want to look like you're wearing a parachute after all). They are down from £50 to £30. Both are available at

And you can add to your winter wardrobe with preppy designs from the recently launched Emma Watson A/W 2010 collection:
Top £26, harem trousers £42.

Organic cotton can be found across lots of other things from swimwear, bed linen to cotton wool, so keep an eye out next time you are doing some retail therapy!
