Dear fast fashion: This is why I broke up with you #FashionRevolutionWeek

Dear fast fashion: This is why I broke up with you #FashionRevolutionWeek

About a year ago, I broke up with fast fashion. If you’ve been following my blog, you already know this, but I think it’s worth sitting down and explaining why.

I’ll start from the beginning.

Love your underwear / Everlane underwear review

Love your underwear / Everlane underwear review

Everyone’s favorite ethical brand recently launched their underwear line! True to the Everlane spirit, the collection is the definition of “better than basic.” It’s simple and functional with no frills, but promises to reinvent a wardrobe staple.

I’ve been impressed with their marketing for the women’s underwear line. Models of color, inclusive body types, poses that show off tummy rolls in all their glory—this is definitely a step in the right direction, and for that alone I was already sold.

My skincare routine for combination skin (hormonal & fungal acne-prone)

My skincare routine for combination skin (hormonal & fungal acne-prone)

As you may know, I’ve been struggling with hormonal acne ever since I got my IUD. And in the past year, I’ve tried so many products to try and tame the hot mess that is my face, mostly to no avail.

But I’m happy to report that although my skin isn’t completely clear, I actually have a better relationship with my skin than ever before. Desperate to figure out how to return to the good old days of clear skin, I’ve been forced to get to know my skin better. I’ve learned what triggers my acne and what the condition of my skin says about my general health. And I’m much more mindful of what I put on my face as well as what I put in my body.

Here’s the lowdown on my current skincare routine! In conjunction with eating less sugar and dairy, I’ve found that my skin is generally happier (and clearer!!) with this routine. In case you’d like to try out any of these products, I’ve included some discount codes/links at the bottom of the post!

Fresh picks for your best spring capsule wardrobe yet!

Ah, spring. It’s that time of year when the long winter months of Netflix and popping Vitamin D supplements finally give way to warmer weather and gorgeous spring blooms (and, sadly, the accompanying allergies).

I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for a wardrobe change. Goodbye to wearing 70 layers of winter clothes, and hello to dreamy textures and fresh hues.

Here are my top picks for a timeless spring capsule wardrobe!
