fashion , beauty & lifestyle

Happy Sunday! 

I'm excited to add this new portion to the blog called Sustainable Finds. Once a month, I will share with you three items which have been sustainably produced, and ones {i find} you will be able to use the heck out of. There will be one item for each category: Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle {home/office/life} ...Click below to see this month's finds!! 


The Arena Zip Top by INKKAS Global Footwear

These kicks are not only comfy, but they can seriously go with anything. The beachy tonal woven panels <which are inspired by the beaches and pre-Columbian ruins of Tulum and the Riviera Maya in Mexico> are funky, subtle & add an extra pop to your outfit {super cute next to jeans or opaque tights, too!}. Plus, these guys are easy to put on with the side metal zippers. INKKAS Global Footwear connects the world, uses authentic vegan textiles and supports local artisans in Latin America.

Illuminating Face Serum by Orenda Skin Care

I'm an avid moisturizer, and I don't miss a chance to do so every morning & night. I've used a few serums over the years, but nothing as fancy as this one. Orenda's face serum is total luxury! It is free of chemicals, parabens, gluten, GMOs, artificial ingredients & animal testing, so you can feel confident applying this formula to your face. With over 20 pure ingredients, Orenda's Illuminating Face Serum provides vital nutrients for your skin while reversing visible signs of aging. The natural beautiful scent is a lovely blend of several different essential oils including; Geranium, Palmarosa, Petitgrain, Sandalwood.. {to name a few}.

Also, Orenda has a 100% guarantee - if your skin isn't pairing well after 30 days, you can send it back. doubtful, though ;) I think your skin will love you for it. Make sure to use code OSC20 for 20% off!!


Greeting Cards by Red + Wolf

The sweetest way to communicate... Red + Wolf is working to raise money for wildlife conservation efforts while connecting us with our friends through adorable hand-written watercolor cards. Even the trees are considered when creating the cards. The paper is 100% post-consumer recycled material, & manufactured using renewable Biogas Energy, which saves 17 trees, 16,399 gallons of water, 5,492 pounds of CO2, 1,674 pounds of waste per ton. Pretty amazing, right!? 

For every card sold, $1 is donated to wildlife conservation. Shop all the ~too~ cute watercolor animals - here!
