Coffee Shops & Crossbody Bags

Essential Experiences

One of my favorite things about Little Rock is the selection of coffee shops, and I love to spend free afternoons sipping a warm beverage with friends or family members. I love how a coffee date puts us face-to-face in the midst of our technology driven world. Since my younger sister went to college, we love to go catch up over coffee or tea when she comes home over the weekends, and last weekend we headed to one of our favorite spots, Mylo Coffee Co. Mylo is located in the Hillcrest Historic District, and while it’s not the most convenient location relative to where I live, I love to go there when I get the chance to enjoy a London Fog and the adorable atmosphere.

My Favorite (Mindful) Pajamas for Christmas & Beyond

where-to-buy-ethically-made-pajamasLet’s Get Cozy

I love a good classic pair of pajamas, and I especially love them during the holidays. Think Mindy Lahiri and Jessica Day style. They’re comfortable, stylish, and just scream Christmas morning. When I first started to get into ethical fashion, cute pjs were hard to come by, but thankfully, as in most categories, the options have expanded. So if you’re ready to treat yourself (or a friend,) to some holiday pajamas and still shop mindfully, this post is for you!

A lot of these areas are things I wouldn’t feel the need to organize regularly, but will be especially helpful as we approach the holidays. Let’s declutter!

My Madewell Favorites: Slow Fashion & Natural Beauty

fair-fashion-ethical-madewell-clothes-beauty-shoesMade Well

One of the few stores in my area that I can walk into and find ethical fashion options at is Madewell. I love that Madewell does exclusive collaborations with various slow fashion brands, giving the brands exposure, and allowing me the chance to see and shop these beautiful items in person. In the last few months, they have really stepped up their game both with their Rivet & Thread made in the USA options, and their beautiful collaborations, even expanding into natural and cruelty free beauty products. No, this post isn’t sponsored, I simply hope it gives you some options for better choices, especially those of you who’s cities have limited brick and mortar stores like me!

IMG_1302Hello December!

Hi friends, and happy 1st of December! I can’t believe we are already to the last month of the year, but I’m so excited for the festive season. Mine is kicking off tonight with a fun holiday event I’m hosting at Madewell in Little Rock, and I hope to see some of you there to chat capsule wardrobes and blogging! As I was thinking about December content, I wanted to challenge myself to do more. As my Christmas break approaches, (perks of working in education!) I’m looking forward to more time to spend on my content, and I’m tentatively planning on posting either a blog post or a video each day through Christmas. If you have any requests, send them my way! For now here are some festive links to check out. From velvet heels to yummy recipes, let’s get the season started!
