If you know me, you know I have an obsession with clogs and the 70s look as a whole, so when I was introduced to Swedish Hasbeens a couple years ago I have been in love ever since. The brand Swedish Hasbeens is based out of the lovely country Sweden and designed after 300 pairs of '70s clogs were found in an abandoned clog factory by the owner, Emily Blixt.

A revival of clogs is a huge recent trend, and one that I suspect will last. With celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Maggie Gyllenhaal donning Swedish Hasbeen clogs, the brand is gaining popularity. "Hasbeens now has an international cult following, having been worn around the world by young and old" Patrix Blixt of Swedish Hasbeens says. The crossover between retro and modern styles of clogs attracts all sorts of individuals and their unique fashion.

Beyond just the pure beauty of Swedish Hasbeens, they are ecofriendly and handmade with care by people who respect the traditional Swedish creation of clogs. Blixt says "The Hasbeens toffels, bags and belts are based on original models from the past and are made of super quality vegetable tanned natural grain leather since it just becomes insanely beautiful when aged. Our production methods and material are kind to nature and people." Swedish Hasbeens are created in the "old traditional way, and in small factories that have made shoes for decades.", the website states. It's important to support companies that stick to their roots and are environmentally conscious while creating high quality goods. As said by Hasbeens Patrix Blixt, "The Hasbeens stuff have real soul, which comes from our history and the traditional and sustainable methods still used to make them."

Swedish Hasbeens can be found on many popular websites along with their website; www.SwedishHasbeens.com.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget.
