Let’s be honest, everyone likes a good sale on their favorite brands or products. But over the past few years, Black Friday has become something more than a just few sales. It’s taken over one of the very few holidays that isn’t about material possessions: THANKGIVING. So with that in mind, I hope that you shop smart and consciously this Black Friday & Cyber Monday weekend. Always ask yourself if you need each product, if the sale is actually worth it (or if it’s just hype) and if the company you’re purchasing from supports your values.
Another month, another “In the limelight”. This series is called “In the limelight” where I share brands, items, people and more that I have been obsessed with this month. Everything I know about them I learned through their website or social media accounts. Some items I had a chance to try but I’m still learning more. I live a conscious lifestyle; so many of these brands and items are natural, non-toxic, ethically made, sustainable and/or socially responsible. To another month of things that caught my eye:
Back again with a video where I chat about my definition of ethical fashion. I also share what ethical fashion looks like in marketing and brand info. This is just an overview so I’d love to hear your thoughts & what your definition is of ethical fashion. Share them in the comments!
I’m starting this new series called “In the limelight”, as a way of sharing brands, items or people that I have been obsessed with this month. Everything I know about them I learned through their website or social media accounts. I live a conscious lifestyle; so many of these brands and items are natural, non-toxic, ethically made, sustainable and/or socially responsible. Now let’s shine the light on what caught my eye this February.
Anyone can be an ethical fashionista. Yes, it does take time and work. From my experience, it’s a journey – not an overnight success. To get started on your journey, follow my simplified plan.
It’s not always easy to see what’s wrong with the fashion industry during the excitement of holiday season. Sometimes the decorated stores, commercial jingles and online shopping sales make us forget to ask questions and to be conscious consumers. So here’s a brief look behind the curtain of the conventional fashion industry.
It’s always exciting to discover more ethical fashion brands that sell shoes. There are many ethical shoe brands internationally but I’ve been looking for brands that deliver to the United States. Here are my favorites that I had to share with you.
I don’t support the traditional Black Friday mayhem. However, I do support small shops, green [i.e. non-toxic & natural] beauty companies and ethical, sustainable companies that are having sales this cyber weekend. I would like to share their sales in the efforts of giving them more exposure to the traditional Black Friday shopper. Shop more consciously through these already amazing companies and get rewarded with a discount and/or free shipping. Perhaps these stores will become your favorites year round.
It’s been 6 months since I started to shop from ethical, sustainable fashion brands. I wanted to make a fun printable to celebrate being a ethical fashionista & encourage others to be more mindful of their purchases. Share the love.
