Like every year, I refuse to let the cold of autumn in my heart and soul and linger as long as possible in my tropical summer mood. Let's pretend it's still warm, let's be fooled into thinking the sounds we hear is palm leaves rustling in the wind. I try to pose as effortless as I can, wearing things from warmer countries: My look is a very international mixture from Spain, Thailand, China, Columbia/Venezuela.

It's a matter of heart to point out my hat and bag: They are both from the Swiss non-profit organization Mama Tierra (read more about them in my post here). I truly adore the extraordinary craftsmanship of the Wayuu woman who made the pieces.

At the moment Mama Tierra is running a campaign to bring solar energy to their homes in South America. There are only a few days left, and I think it's a cause so worthy of support, especially since I know the amazing women behind the project. They work very hard and with a lot of passion and I wish that they can soon turn on the lights in over 100 Wayuu households to make the lives of those people easier and safer.
