Eco OOTD | Malaika New York

Hey there, friends. It’s a cosy Sunday as I write this post, I’m relaxing hard after a hectic day. This afternoon we went shopping so hubby could finally buy new shoes (they are very lumberjack-ish. I am very OK with that, haha), I tried a new butternut squash and cajun chicken recipe for dinner (which turned out really well BTW), then went ahead and FINALLY purged a couple of my junk drawers and cleaned out the bathroom cupboard, which used to be a complete nightmare. Now, after treating myself to a face mask and hair mask, I’m just winding down for bed… but not before getting ready to share a super cool brand with you: Malaika New York. They were kind enough to send me two pairs of their recycled plastic earrings to review, so please read on to find out why these are the bomb dot com.

For starters, these earrings are called “moon earrings,” and let’s be perfectly honest, they do kind of look like moon rock.  If that’s not cool enough, they are made of upcycled plastic bags, which also means these earrings are very environmentally friendly, very unique (no two are exactly the same!) and very light. If you have sensitive ears like me, that is a huge plus because it means you can wear these for a long time without it tugging on your ears and irritating the holes.

Above you see the white pair, below is the black pair.

Get the look:

Malaika also has a fashion line, which has a minimalistic, futuristic feel to it. You’ll have to just see it for yourself, but we’re talking asymmetric zippers, oversized hoods, iridescent looking fabric. If you’re at all interested in futuristic vibes, I highly suggest checking them out. Your future self will thank you. Get it. Dad jokes on point today.

I always say it’s such a shame that I’ll never be a dad, since I already have the joke game down to a terrible science and mom jokes aren’t a thing. #Equalityformomjokes.
