Finding a nice swimsuit in Asia may be hard for those of us who are curvier. That’s why we’re excited about home-grown brand K.BLU’s latest collection of swimwear. Sizes go from UK10 all the way to UK18, and in a range of beautiful prints. kblu.com
We’re itching to get our hands on the ZIBÂ Pendant Necklace (US$70) from online marketplace Artisan & Fox, which collaborates with ethical and responsible individual artisans, small artisan groups and social enterprises.
