As long as you can still make do with the summer in the bottle for at home and / or the balcony: The new "Chandon Garden Spritz" wants to be "The first sip of Summer", the drink from the Champagnerhaus is a sparkling wine with orange bitters, made from local Argentine oranges, herbs and spices.

Even if you would like to throw it in the trash on the first day of spring, you should not only refrain from doing this with regard to the weather forecast.

Two million umbrellas end up in the garbage can every year, recycling them is almost impossible.

The designs of the Berlin label Studio Wetter are not only more robust, but also available in cool colors and produced in a completely climate-neutral manner.

Finding stylish jewelry for a man that doesn't look too ostentatious is an art.

In her new “Move” collection, the designer Valerie Messika has combined leather straps with titanium, gold, matt metal and a surprisingly extravagant color scheme for the first time.

The result is more than 300 bracelet combinations that are suitable for both men and women, which can be swapped with the partner or combined with sparkling elements from diamonds to gold.

From tangerine orange to emerald green to subtle brown and nude tones, these bracelets are a clear recommendation if you are looking for a timeless gift.

So far, the sustainability image of coffee capsules has been rather bad.

The manufacturer Nespresso is now committed to working on it.

The first tentative steps have been taken: the capsules of the Original Line Master Origins Colombia variety already consist of 80 percent secondary aluminum, and the entire range of all Original and Verturo coffee capsules should follow suit by the end of 2021.

After the correct disposal, the capsules go back into the recycling cycle and the raw material can always be reused.

One moment please

The term self-care is a bit notorious.

Sometimes there is not much more to supposed miracle products than an empty marketing promise.

If you want to be on the safe side that you are guaranteed to get something from your feel-good moment, you would prefer a professional treatment.

Oribe, the brand behind these clearly aesthetically pleasing pots, bottles and tubes, is now also offering its first salon-exclusive service.

The "Renewal Remedies Treatment Experience" is a treatment that is tailored to the individual needs of each hair type.

The individual formulas are mixed specifically for each customer depending on the requirements.

This is how effective self-care works.

Away from the mainstream

In the vast expanse of the Internet there are plenty of shops that offer supposedly original posters.

Wall of Art keeps its promise - even if the name doesn't really suggest it.

The prints were created by young artists and photographers and mostly appear expressionistic, but the range also includes several other styles and techniques.

The Swedish company wants to encourage people to put together a specially curated “Wall of Art”.

If you are a little lacking in inspiration, you can also purchase a curated selection.
