Change One Thing // Show the Bees Some Love

Image via Hello friends and happy Friyay!!! Whoo-hoo we made it (why is it that short work weeks sometimes feel the longest?)! This week has been absolutely nuts for me, but equally awesome! I got to participate in a letter writing campaign for Planned Parenthood, a tree planting with Keep Austin Beautiful, and I got to do some awesome environmental grant research for the National Wildlife Federation. Plus we have so many exciting things happening right here at Something Swell Media, but we will get to those later (seeecretsss *insert winky face emoji here*). Anyways, today we are talking about…

Currently Digging // February Edition

Hello everyone! Today we are dipping back into our newest series “Currently Digging” after a brief hiatus. With so much going on these last few months, the only thing I have been “digging” is sleep when I get a chance to partake in it, and red wine.

I do not purchase new stuff frequently so monthly installments seem perfect for sharing with you guys…

1) Voluspa Baltic Amber Candle My pre school’s booster club bought me this candle for my birthday and I could not be more obsessed with the scent! Amber is so perfect for this fall time of year and even though Texas is severely lacking in Fall weather (hello 98 degree days!) this candle makes me feel very cozy.

Change One Thing // Cancel Your Junkmail

Image via OK, real talk time. Show of hands, who else is so incredibly sick of getting a thousand credit card offers, loan pre-approvals, and random take out menus in their mailbox everyday? Well, I cannot see your hands, but I am guessing that everyone else is over it too. Not only is junk mail a total nuisance to receive, it is also incredibly wasteful.  According to www.41pounds.org, the average person receives 41 pounds of junk mail per year! Additionally, to produce and process 4 million tons of junk mail a year over 100 million trees are destroyed, not to…
