Pumpkin Isn’t Just For Your Pies and Lattes Any Longer

When pumpkin spice latte season rolls around, I roll my eyes. I really don’t think that most people today could’ve made it through the Great Depression. We seem to lose our collective minds when the Seattle-based coffee company announces to the world that your favorite lattes are back in season. Pumpkin spice latte is so popular that most of the large coffee brands sell some version of it. The coffee creamer brands jump on the...

Prettypegs Upgrades Your IKEA Furniture With Stylish New Options

In 1986, IKEA opened its second American store in Potomac Mills Mall in Woodbridge, Virginia. The blue and yellow store stood out like beautiful sore thumb. As a creative, IKEA is a wonderful playground for the imagination to roam. The prices are reasonable and the Swedish style fit with my aesthetic. After moving into our first apartment, my ex-husband and I decided to fill our home with a few IKEA goodies. Our first IKEA couch...

Finding My Good Night’s Sleep Inside of a Tiny Brown Bottle of CBD

Now that I’m on the other side of menopause, I truly believed that sleep would come easily. The night sweats are gone. I’m not kicking off the duvet cover searching desperately for the cold spot. My bed sheets no longer feel like I could fry an egg on top. I’m sleeping naked because I want to sleep naked. So why am I not sleeping? Menopause had been the 800-pound gorilla sucking the joy out of...

Fab Vintage Find: Vintage Lacoste Sweater

When I go thrift shopping, the two things that I gravitate towards are shoes and sweaters. I have to tell myself on a regular that I have plenty of shoes and plenty of sweaters. It’s so true. But it doesn’t stop me from wishing. I enjoy the hunt. Even if I leave empty-handed. My deal with myself is that I can buy secondhand items but only if I responsibly share clothing that I no longer...

Fab Vintage Find: Orange Sketch Pattern Dress

If it has a great pattern and bold colors, then it’s for me. Add the fact that it is a maxi dress and we have a winner. The pattern is so big. It makes a grand statement. Love the bow-tie on the top half. Looks like it is from the ’70s. If you wanted to remix this dress, you could lose the sleeves and make the skirt a midi skirt. Size 10. Grab this fab...

Zero Waste Tour Discovers Food Is Wasted More Than Plastics

The World’s First Zero Waste Adventure found food excess to be their biggest challenge I normally would not post about a wildlife tour company, particularly because travel is not carbon-neutral, unless you participate in a carbon offset program. “Airlines alone are the single largest source of carbon emissions for the last three years, with CO2 emissions by U.S. airlines increasing more than 3% in 2018 (Forbes, “50 Travel Companies Trying Their Hardest to Reduce Their...

Is BanQu The Answer To Fashion’s Modern Slavery Problem?

The BanQu Effect Meeting Ashish Gadnis was the most memorable moment of my entire Sustainable Brands conference experience. Could he possibly be the sustainable superhero that we are all looking for to save fashion’s modern slavery issue? Possibly. Gadnis is the CEO of BanQu, a for-profit, blockchain-as-a-service company working to eradicate extreme poverty. The goal—to make 100 millions dollars while helping 100 million people out of poverty. He is unabashedly honest about being a for-profit...

Sustainable Brands 2019: A Meeting of the Global Sustainable Change Agents

“I think Detroit is where muscle meets brains.” -Dan Gilbert What happens when brands across multiple industries converge in Detroit to talk about sustainability? Good things happen. For me, it’s all about sustainability in fashion. So I have a different perspective from most of the attendees. The majority of the people here are corporate sustainability officers (or something similar) who are looking to hear about the latest advances and best practices in this ever-changing movement....
