Beat June gloom by catching up with my favorite things from this spring, including my current signature scent, a fiercely funny and feminist TV show, and a pair of earrings that never fail to garner compliments.

Winter is all fun and games until after New Year’s when all the festivities are over and the only thing to look forward to are more rain, numb toes, and chapped lips.
That being said, wintertime is the best time to slow down and cozy up with that book you kept saying you’d read and that knitting project you forgot about amid the holiday rush. Here are some things this winter that sparked joy for me; enjoy!
Hi friends! It’s been a long time coming, but after extensive testing I’m excited to finally share my thoughts on Girlfriend Collective’s LITE leggings.
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 🙂
Yup, you read that right. One whole sweater, in seven days, with my two hands.
You might be wondering if I have knitting machine hands or something, but the secret is simple: Big yarn and big needles. Not only are extremely chunky knits the very definition of cute and cozy, they also knit up super quickly.
I reached out to Wool and the Gang to try one of their chunky sweaters, and they sent me their Eden Jumper kit.
Thanks to everyone who’s been sending me screenshots of the Girlfriend Collective website, with MY FACE on it! I truly appreciate the love!
For those of you who don’t know, I was lucky enough to hang out with the team that makes my favorite leggings ever, along with some fellow Girlfriend fans. Here’s how it all happened.
When I think about shopping more consciously, I’ll admit that my electronics and tech don’t top my shopping list. I’ve happily given up my fast fashion addiction to embrace slow fashion, but taking a more conscious approach to the gadgets that power my life, my career, and this blog is mostly uncharted territory for me.
This is partly because I find shopping for clothes fun and do it on a regular basis, but rarely buy new electronics. It’s also because, compared to the overwhelming selection consumers have when it comes to fashion, there are narrower options when it comes to the electronics we buy.
I recently learned about Nimble, a company that takes a more thoughtful and conscious approach to consumer electronics and tech, and I’m thrilled to partner with them to share their story with you.
The annual celebration of consumerism is upon us again! But while Black Friday and Cyber Monday have a reputation as horrific displays of mass consumerism, they are also an opportunity for many of us to buy ethical and sustainable goods that may otherwise be out of our price range.
Best of all, most of these brands are online…so you can skip the crowds and lines and shop from your bed!
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.
With the holidays coming up, I thought it’d be the perfect time to whip up this roundup of ethical fine jewelry brands that won’t break the bank.
My friends know that when it comes to fashion or comfort, I will always choose the latter, hands down.
Is it too much to ask for cute clothes that are also soft, comfortable, and warm? I don’t think so!
I’m happy to partner with Les Lunes, an ethical and sustainable brand that doesn’t think so either! Les Lunes combines luxurious comfort and softness with fashion-forward designs for the perfect fall wardrobe, and they do it all with care for the environment and the people who make their clothes.
