your guide for flea markets around the globe

For me, the perfect way to explore a new city, is to stroll around its flea markets. Hidden in the objects are stories of the history and spirit of a place. Nicolas Martin thought the same and founded a website called Flea Market Insiders, which now has a new app called Fleamapket. I interviewed him about this new feature, his love for flea markets and his tips and tricks for a successful flea market hunt.

The Ingredient | Sunflower oil

If it were up to me, I'd crown sunflowers "the happiest flowers on earth." With their soft yellow leafs and heads that follow the sun around all day, these babies deserve it. They're not just pretty, their oil also contains super healthy properties.

I spoke with Earth Tu Face's co-founder about this perfume balm and her summer rituals.
