Links for a Lovely, Spring Weekend

Happy Easter weekend! Whether you are celebrating a sacred time or just enjoying the spring weather, I wish you days of peace and joy.

A few favorite links from recent posts:


My friends over at Grove & Bay are giving away beautiful, new jewelry from Faire Collection. If you aren’t familiar with Grove & Bay, check them out! They do the research to bring you a curated collection of ethical wardrobe pieces, including menswear.

Holly Rose has recreated Easter favorite Cadbury Creme Eggs using fair trade chocolate and Numi Organic Tea. What a fun project!

Project Just has a fascinating look at what makes a brand “ethical.” I’ll probably subscribe to their site so I can read details on that Everlane interview.

If you’re thinking zero-waste thoughts as we approach Earth Day, be sure to check out Hannah’s review of SuperBee Wax Wraps as an eco-friendly alternative to cling wrap for your kitchen.

Thoughtful, Thankful Links

Hi, friends! I hope you are having a restful Thanksgiving holiday. Whether you are shopping or resting this weekend, I have a few links I thought you might like.

Looking to shop ethically this weekend? I have a list of sales up at Fair Fashion Finds. Many of the sales were compiled by the talented writers of the Ethical Bloggers Network. My favorites include 20% off plus free shipping at FashionABLE* and 30% off at PACT Apparel.*

If you’re looking for books for the kiddos in your life, check out the holiday sales at Usborne Books. I’m hosting a party with my friend Michelle, and you can shop our party here! Be sure to click on the “Book Friday 2015” link for the sale.

I love this guide from StyleWise on 5 Questions Every Conscious Consumer Should Ask.

 

LetsTradeLet’s Be Fair’s “Let’s Trade” is always a favorite of mine. This month they find ethical alternatives to Madewell.

That’s all I got, folks! Tune in next Tuesday for my Fair Tuesday gift guide in collaboration with the Ethical Bloggers Network.

Links for the Never-Ending Cold

It’s March. And we’re covered with ice here in Nashville. I’m not particularly surprised, as Nashville gets a good March snowstorm at least every 10 years.

But I need the cold to just stop already. We’re stir-crazy and gDaffodilrumpy here. We’ve resorted to our 574th viewing of Cars by this point (aided by warm apple cider).

If you need a little thawing out, physically or emotionally, I’ve got some cozy fireside reading for you today.

If you need some hope, need to know we all have flaws and all need grace, check out Momastery’s Sacred Scared series. A part of each post made me want to stand up and shout, “Me, too! Me, too!”

If you’re a mom in need of a catharsis, check out Suburbal Turmoil’s The Last One. But grab a box of tissues first.

And finally, if you want to know about this crazy fair trade stuff I keep posting about, check out Let’s Be Fair’s funĀ explanatory post, written for her dad.

Hope you all stay warm this week, and I hope the sun returns soon..for all our sakes.
