Last Saturday, I attended a summer clothing swap hosted by The Sister House Collective (a super cute store containing a highly ethically curated collection of handcrafted items), Salex (an online boutique specializing in high quality recycled fashion), and Minimal Market ( a pop-up company selling waste-free handcrafted goods).

New Firmoo Glasses

When I first realized that my eyesight was going bad, back in 2008, I refused to wear glasses. I actually had contacts for a year before owning my first pair of glasses. I literally did everything in my power to avoid wearing glasses until absolutely necessary. I even chose to get contacts that I could wear for a month straight. Now, I finally am starting to really like glasses. I was super excited when the company Firmoo reached out to…

How To Learn to Love your Natural Hair

When I first started my natural hair journey, I did not love my hair, nor did I show my hair any love. For years I had been damaging my hair with heat and chemicals. I would literally straighten my hair everyday! After years of neglecting my hair I finally decided to start wearing my hair natural. I did so only through the encouragement of others. At first I hated my hair, however I slowly learned to love it.   Here are…

I cannot wait to visit again. Where…

Mannequin Match Up #2

Topshop sells such gorgeous and trendy clothing. I love their selection, however they are out of my price range and they are fast-fashion. Since I cannot afford to buy their clothes and I cannot support the ethics behind fast-fashion, I opt for a thrifted alternative instead. In this episode of Mannequin Match Up, I will be recreating 3 Topshop looks for less. If you haven’t seen the first episode of the series, you can watch it here.  Feel free to…

Simply Earth Unboxing

I have been on a natural hair, health, beauty, and lifestyle kick for the past couple of years. I believe natural products are the best to use on our hair, on our skin, and in our homes. During my kick I’ve grown a love for essential oils. So far I have used jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, African black castor oil, and avocado oil. I am in love with all of those oils, however I have…
