Vegan Leather Shoes with SOULiers Studio

Although I’m a self-professed minimalist, when it comes to shoes, I honestly don’t think you can have enough.

Tips to Avoid an Unnecessary Shopping Spree

There are times when I crave a really good shopping spree. I think when you work retail or in an environment surrounded by clothes; you either become hyper-particular about your tastes and reduce your intake, OR you get excited about the constant barrage of new product and end up buying.

This time of year is often associated with Pinterest boards full of inspiration, goals of all kinds and lofty ambitions.

Responsible Travel: Is it Possible?

A long time ago, my sister-in-law asked me what my first love was. You know, the thing you first discover as a child and slowly build an obsession around? Sometimes it’s a sport, sometimes it’s an animal (not going to lie, I totally had a Northern Getaway tee with a giant wolf on it during my wolf-phase), sometimes it’s a craft or hobby.
