Let’s face it. It’s cool to know what time it is. It’s also cool to not be glued to our phones. We’re all striving to be present, but most of us rely on technological devices to tell us what minute of the day we are in. Wearing a wrist watch can relieve us of cell phone googling, putting our phones away only to take them out again, and can be the cherry on top of a perfect outfit. The brand I’m highlighting in this post comes from a long line of cute, and classic. WARNING: You may fall in love.
This Summer, I am committed to sharing with you handfuls of my favorite conscious brands! What better way to begin than with swimwear? With slow fashion finally making its debut, I’d like to expose one of the most original, creative artists in the biz. As someone I have known nearly my entire life, and someone I’ve always felt inspired by, it is no surprise to me that my friend Sabrina has launched her very own swimwear company. Excluding the bias of the artist behind the brand being someone I love, there are 2 important reasons you should know that she and her brand exist.
Number 1: Her line is a part of the slow fashion industry and is an excellent choice for ethical, conscious style.
Number 2: Knowing her has brought an extra whimsical spin to my life and now, through her creations, you can experience the dreaminess this gal brings into the world with everything she touches.
Without further ado, let me introduce the most unique, literally one-of-a-kind (as her pieces are made to order), swimwear lines around, Sabrina West Swimwear.
When I first went vegan, it was all about the food. I simply refused to eat animal products. I felt like I had found my truth. It was amazing! I was on top of the world. Then, I realized that VEGAN meant an entire way of life. I began to notice that animal products were in eeeeverything . . . my toiletries, my beauty products, my clothes and accessories. I realized that my closet was full of non vegan friendly items and the more I looked at my bags and boots, the more I saw skin rather than high quality fabrics. This was so disturbing to me that I ended up gathering those items and getting rid of them. While I felt relieved by cleansing my closet of animal products, I was a bit saddened by the thought that I would have to settle for cheaper fabrics from that point on, or so I thought . . .
The rainforest; a tropical treasure trove, breathtaking in its lush green majesty and one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet. This magical world is disappearing right before our eyes. As illegal logging becomes more prevalent in places such as Indonesia, the rainforests there are literally being stripped null. Places that were once inhabited by so many of the world’s most beautiful creatures . . .
Meet, my beloved new Eba tote. She’s amazing. Aside from her undeniable functionality and perfectly simple style, the ethics behind her creation make her a perfect match for someone that is vegan and/or eco-concious. Complete with two large compartments, a big interior pocket, and a center zipper pocket for smaller, more valuable items, she’s the ultimate vegan handbag for any multifaceted gal (or guy) on-the-go!
Heya cuties! V-day is just around the corner and I wanted to share with you how I am celebrating this oh-so-lovely holiday in honor of Saint Valentine. I’ve got some style inspiration, some good ideas on how to spend the day, and a playlist for all you love birds out there. Take my hand and let’s go for a . . . scroll . . .
Greetings earthlings! This post is all about one of my favorite things in life, GLITTER. I know, it sounds vapid and so dumb that you probably just questioned the purpose of my existence. Well, I was a pretty big tom-boy growing up but I still can’t recall a time that I denied my love for glitter. I think it goes a little deeper than the happy happy joy joy Ren and Stimpy dance I want to do every time I see it. I think it has more to do with my love for LIGHT and the way that glitter reflects light so well in every direction. It just never ceases to amaze me.
If you love glitter as much as I do . . .if that’s even possible. . .here is a tour of some of my most used glitter accessories. All of the items are made with multi colored glitter, or as I like to call it, PARTY GLITTER. I adore all shades, but this rainbow combination is hard to beat. Now Let’s Party . . .
