Attention, attention – My dear friend and assistant Milli is taking over the Monthly Favs this month and has picked out really great stuff for you! I am very excited! We are both very similar, almost the same, so her preferences are mine. Milli is such a good person, she loves traveling, vegan cuisine and inspires me again and again with her sustainable ideas and, like me, she is also a yoga teacher. <3
It’s Milli – Who, please? Do I know her? you might ask yourself now. Actually, you already know me, because I’m jumping around on the blog every now and then, texting and editing and supporting Annelina with her incredibly many projects. Because everybody deserves a little summer break, also or above all our Annelina, here are my/our Monthly Favs in July.
1. GOOD FOOD:
I love to travel, no matter if I go with the camper through Europe or drink fresh coconuts at the sandy beaches in Thailand or on Bali (with my travel glass straw of course). Here are three of my favorite vegan cafés around the world:
The best juices at hot temperatures are at Broccoli Revolution in Bangkok:
The best raw vegan desserts at Sayuri Healing Food in Bali:
The best stuffed “egg” at Le Potager de Charlotte in Paris:
2. Good Fashion
A good friend of mine is the co-founder of EMERALD BERLIN, a sustainable and social start-up that I would like to introduce to you. The EMERALD BERLIN team loves fair fashion, but above all fair goals and fair deeds. That’s why you create the absolutely coolest statement shirts, because behind these statements is not just a subjective opinion, but a whole project and a real positive will of a cool organization. The team simply combines stylish sustainable fashion with a charity idea! Together with recognized charity organizations and NGOs, they are therefore looking specifically for social and political projects to support them with their statement shirts and carry the commitment and ideas into the world. Whoever buys a shirt from EMERALD BERLIN is a direct project sponsor and thus stands for the protection of orang-utans or support of the water supply in Nepal. Cool? Cool!
3. Good Sound
And another friend…Lias is just starting his singer-songwriter career and has released this beautiful song. Actually, I prefer to listen to funk, electro, and jazz, but this is my absolute summer sound of 2019. Eyes closed, ears open and enjoy!
4. Good Read
Eh, yeah, another friend… oops I did it again. But also really great, I promise. Six years ago I met Jakob Horvat on a trip through Southeast Asia. Together we spent a few days on a small island in Indonesia, drinking coconuts and philosophizing about life. Jakob is a real adventurer, so he traveled the world for 14 months and met people who lead their lives unconventionally according to their own taste. He described this wonderful time in his book Weltnah. Great inspiration and great recommendation!
5. Good News
Do you sometimes have the feeling that only the bad things in the world are constantly being reported on, instead of contributing constructively to the solution of a problem or even seeking a solution? Of course, we can’t always just report on the beautiful sides of the world, that would be ignorant and not really fair, especially in our privileged situation! It is a good thing that Perspective Dailey exists. This is the first news magazine to engage in constructive journalism, which means that journalists not only deal with the problems of the world but also think about solutions and represent them in public. Some time ago I spoke with the founder Dr. Maren Urner. She told me that PDailey, in addition to the classic questions “What happened? Where did it happen? Why did it happen? And who was or is involved? adds another question, namely the “what now” question, i.e. a solution-oriented approach! Cool? Cool! 🙂
It was a great pleasure for me to get in touch with you a little more personally. I have to use this moment to tell you all that I think you are wonderful people and part of a great community! I hope you enjoy my personal favorites and tips at 🙂
Much love and see you soon again, Milli
