In the past two years or so, I’ve made efforts to introduce my kids to accurate history and indigenous perspectives. I wanted to share these alternative Thanksgiving ideas to help inform … Continue reading Alternative Thanksgiving Ideas for Kids

3 Ways Conscious Fashion Saves Money

Affordable ethical fashion is not an oxymoron. One of the more common complaints I receive about ethical or socially conscious fashion is how expensive it is. “I can get a t-shirt for $5 at <insert store here> why would I pay $70?!?!” or “Does affordable ethical fashion even exist?” I get it.

It really crosses off all the boxes: new year, new you, #konmari, and yet another social media-driven personal challenge. It’s okay, I can admit when I’m predictable. But really though! Doing this with other people was … Continue reading Finding Joy in Your Closet
