Khadi Soaps are made with organic natural herbal ingredients in scents like jasmine, rose, and lime lavender — are handmade with wild herbs handpicked by locals. The formulas are based on ancient Ayurvedic recipes and embrace traditional Indian values. That means no animal testing, no mineral oils, no synthetics, no artificial colors, and minimal packaging, as befits a company founded by Gandhi.
I remember staying at this lovely little guest house in Jaipur , in north India called TARA NIWAS where the bathrooms came equipped with herbal soaps and shampoos. I absolutely loved these soaps, especially the rose honey with its fantastic smell and smooth texture. Nothing fancy ( not the guesthouse, not the condiments and not even the people ) just good quality and great value for money.

Gisèle Scanlon's The Goddess Guide, first published in 2006, looks so inticing. A compilation of info, shopping goodness, tips, secret addresses, fashion bits, inspiration and so on, all put together/illustrated/designed by the very talented author in a visually stunning way.
Now there's a sequel, called The Goddess Experience, and if anything it's better.

In the world of design, there are few names which command the same veneration as that of Alan Fletcher. A British graphic designer consistently ahead of his time, Fletcher’s back catalogue is this month on show in a major retrospective at Manchester’s CUBE Gallery.
André Saraiva, aka André, once tattooed French streets everywhere with his infamous alter-ego character, a round-headed figure nicknamed Mr A. In the early noughties, he went on to opening clubs worldwide, including Le Baron in Paris and Beatrice Inn in New York. Today, this artist about town is trying his hand at classical drawings. His very first show, entitled Drawingsopened atColette on February 1. Consisting of 30 illustrations, made out of ink and colour pencils, that have been never shown before that mix up childhood cartoons, LSD aesthetics and his infatuation with New York, these works reveal a brand new André.
I’ve always lived at night, from the moment I started making graffiti. Music too is part of my universe – the underground, the avant-garde are scenes that exist only at night. Night events were a way of bringing all these elements together, of creating new atmospheres.
The exhibition ‘Drawings’, is on at Colette, 213 Rue Saint-Honoré, Paris, from the 1st to the 27th of February
"Design is the lowest branch of art,” challenges nu-Greek god of culture, Vassilis Charalambidis. Controversial, not only because he’s addressing the rising design stars of the Athens's Bombay Sapphire Design Walk, but also because he too is a designer.
