Cutting Down on Shopping Waste with BAGGU + a Giveaway!!! **CLOSED**

A special congratulations to our winner Sarah!   When it comes to shopping waste reduction, I am always trying to think of new ways to cut down. An interesting fact to take note of, in most parts of California you have to pay for paper or plastic bags when you purchase things at the grocery store. This got me into the habit of bringing my own bags when I entered college and man, did I notice a huge difference in how much garbage accumulated in my home. Now that I live in Ohio I am always baffled by everyone’s blank…

Vajayjay Talk // Period Panties

OK so the title kinda says it all on this one. When shark week pops up/you’re surfing the crimson wave/Mr. T is in town – whatever you like to call it, it is an overarching taboo subject in our culture and the brand Thinx is trying to change that.

Spring Cleaning in Style with Thred Up

As you all know, Goodwill is my best friend in the whole wide world and most of my clothes are either from my office sample sale, a friend’s goodwill pile or a thrift store/flea market. Purchasing pre-owned clothing is amazing for the world in so many ways – from nixing your carbon footprint, to not creating any chemical waste, preventing the risk of employing sweatshop workers,  to employing many new jobs through Goodwill facilities. With that being said, I do understand that a lot of people aren’t down with sifting through some potentially nasty, pre-used clothes, but that is where…

My Road Trip Necessities

When you are planning a road trip, as fun as you know it will be, the idea of being stuck in a car with people, or even by yourself, for hours on end can seem incredibly daunting. A and I are going to be trekking to a few relatively far away places in the upcoming months (Toronto, Chicago and Washington D.C. among others) and I thought it was about time to get prepared for whenever adventure may strike! I don’t know about you, but I am not a huge fan of packing and unpacking especially when I am traveling a…
