The exciting, and the not so exciting...

OK, first for the exciting. Discovered that one of our new bags have made it into the top 60 nominations for Eco Friendly Items on the Etsy website. Woo Hoo!!!!

Amongst some really great company there, including FIVE other BrisStyle gals (go REread, Ruby2GoGo, Pedrosprout, Art Decadence and Epheriell). And what's really great is that the bag in question is one of our new coffee sack bags (the "Macchiato").

Nice to see one of the new additions to the range going down well. This bag is made from a coffee sack, a reclaimed upholstery remnant, and recycled buttons.

If you would like to cast your vote for your favourite eco-friendly item you can do so HERE. But no pressure to vote for us - Jade and I are just super happy to have one of our bags nominated.

So yay!!! That was the exciting bit (well, exciting for us anyway).

In other not so exciting news, here is my Watcha Wearing Wednesday pic. Boring as all get-up I'm afraid. And a day late. Again. I was so uninspired by my own hastily thrown together outfit I didn't even bother getting off the phone to take the photo. So yeah, this is multi-tasking in action - something I am notoriously bad at (as this blurry photo reveals).

The top is a very lovely hand-me-down from a very lovely friend in Melbourne. The jeans are my comfy old faithfuls, and the shoes are my new favourites. I'm sure that one day I might actually be wearing something interesting for WWW. Even though Wednesdays are often 'around the house' days, I might just have to frock up just so I am not boring myself stupid while taking my own photo!!!

Ok, and if you're even still reading after that mind-numbing waffle, here's a reward. Head on over to the BrisStyle blog, for your chance to win this.

Or these.

The apron is by the irrepressible Louise from Made by Miffy, and the gorgeous brooches are by the equally gorgeous Chris from Little Chrissy. I highly recommend reading their interviews - bright, interesting, inspiring, and very entertaining. And leave a little comment on the blog post for a chance to win (winner is drawn on 25th April).

And that my friends, is that. Thanks for hanging in there :P

Just voted! I might add that your bags are also really reasonably priced! Yay for eco-friendly and nice prices!

I totally want to come and raid your wardrobe. You have VERY similar taste in clothes to me.
Congrats on the bag too - I voted for you crazy kids :-)

Oh poo. I just tried to vote again but they wouldn't let me. And they call this democracy?

Poo from me too, I tried to vote for more than one yesterday. Congrats to all the BrisStylettes who were nominated for the top 60! Clever girls :)

There's nothing boring about what you're wearing. Your red top is very pretty. I dread being seen even taking out the garbage on my dreggy Wednesdays, I wouldn't dare post it on my blog ;D

I love the bags and I'm just heading over to vote for you now.

When I was in Africa many years ago, I had a pair of shorts and a shirt made out of flour sacks. I know, I know, I was pretty cool!

Yep have to admit I'm pretty taken by those bags Miss Bean xox. I am loving my new beckybeanbag but maybe she needs an earthy friend!

Rock on eco sister.
