from cnn online:
"derreck kayongo and his atlanta-based global soap project collect used hotel soap from across the united states. instead of ending up in landfills, the soaps are cleaned and reprocessed for shipment to impoverished nations such as haiti, uganda, kenya and swaziland."
the article details how expensive soap is in developing countries and how soap is the first line of disease prevention. i love businesses that are created because someone cared enough to notice a simple, everyday solution to a massive need that most of us overlook. find out more on their website: global soap project.

coveteur & vogue teamed up for a slideshow on the weekend bags of their favorite editors, photographers, and designers. my favorite weekend bag (featured below) belonged to valerie boster, an editor at vogue. she had me at bantu bikinis, lime green roxy headphones, and balenciaga wedges. a weekend getaway should be 8 parts relaxation/fun and 2 parts casual glamour right? for more tribal swimwear check out bantuwax.com. best part? the west african prints and labor are 100% authentically african. (designed in ivory coast and manufactured in ethiopia) love it!
