Farmacy Beauty is one of my all-time favorite clean beauty brands. I love both the ethos behind the company and what their products have done for my skin, and I thought I’d share some of my favorites from the brand.

Black-owned ethical brands to support this Black History Month (and every month)!

Black-owned ethical brands to support this Black History Month (and every month)!

I believe that conscious consumerism can be even more impactful when we approach it with an anti-racist and intersectional feminist lens. Shopping BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & People of Color – more context here) and woman-owned brands helps supports these communities in a world where wealth and power are mostly centralized in the hands of white men, while supporting more ethical practices.

This Black History Month, I’ve curated a list of ethical and sustainable Black-owned brands that you can support any time of year! Be sure to bookmark this page for future reference 🙂

I’ll be listing Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales for ethical and sustainable brands here. Bookmark this page and check back throughout the weekend for updated sales.

Time to ‘fess up. I’m addicted to Reformation.

For the longest time, I determinedly held firm against their “cool girl” marketing and ridiculously adorable styles, appalled that just one dress could cost over $200. No way was I going to give in and splurge my nonprofit wages on these floral print wallet-temptresses, no matter how cute!

We’re at the peak of summer, which means I’ve been living in my favorite lazy outfit: the summer dress! I mean, when it’s pushing 90 degrees out, you don’t have time to pick out and coordinate two or more pieces of clothing.
