Sustainable Clothing Options for Men

I recently participated in a public interview for a virtual zero waste conference and thought I was ready for audience questions when one had me stumped. Where can men shop for sustainable clothing?  Things are changing now, but for a while the conversation around slow fashion and sustainable style left a lot of people out; Black people, people of colour, the LGBTQ community, people of different abilities and sizes, and I think we can add

Goodbye Summer

It’s well and truly over. I wish I was referring to 2020 and the messed up state of the world, but no – I’m talking about my favourite season: summer. Even when you’re in it, summer feels a bit nostalgic. Before I started spending summers traveling in Europe with my mom (I’ve been lucky enough to do this for the past 5 years – you can check out one of my travel vlogs here, or my

Three Canadian Indigenous Owned Brands To Discover

I recently read that natural habitats grow and thrive more when under Indigenous stewardship. This seems like such an obvious statement after writing it, but if it’s so obvious, why aren’t indigenous voices a bigger part of the conversation around sustainability?  For this month’s amplification of BIPOC voices, I’ve chosen three indigenous owned and operated businesses that I’ve recently discovered.

Thank You! 100K Celebration

I debated posting about my little celebration the other day. In the giant ocean that is the Internet, 100K subscribers on a Youtube Channel is the tiniest of drops in the tiniest of buckets. But after reflecting, the reason I felt so compelled to celebrate 100K subscribers was to share my thanks with everyone who has ever liked, commented, shared, or watched any of my videos. I truly believe the channel and this community belongs

Why I Love Cuyana’s Holistic Approach to Sustainability & My NEW Bag

I’m not really a bag lady, I’m more of a shoe person. But I still appreciate a beautifully designed and chic handbag. I find that because I don’t get too excited about handbags, it takes me a very long time to find one I like and I am extra particular in what I add to my handbag collection. For me, a handbag is primarily for function, but I want it to look good, work with

5 Styling Hacks That Have Changed My Summer Wardrobe

I will be completely honest: chic summer outfits are not my forte. I’ve wanted to elevate my summer wardrobe game for a long time now but living 80% of my life in frigid tundra-like conditions makes it difficult. There is so little time to practice! But I’m happy to say that over the years, I’ve recently started to develop some fail-proof styling tips that have changed my summer wardrobe choices for the better, and none

5 BIPOC Sustainable Style Bloggers to Follow

If you read my newsletter, you are familiar with my fan-girling over Aja Barber, the fiery writer  and blogger who drops sustainable style knowledge and truth bombs on the regular. I’ve been following Aja for a while, and for a long while, she was one of the only Black sustainable style influencers I followed. Since the BLM movement in June, I discovered so many incredible Black sustainable style bloggers, and as part of my efforts

3 Black-Owned Vintage Businesses for Your Next Secondhand Shopping

There are so many lists of Black-owned businesses and creators since the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement earlier this month. Does the internet need another list? Probably not. But (perhaps selfishly), I am sharing 3 Black-owned vintage shops for your next secondhand purchase. As someone who wants to self-educate and expand my consumption beyond white creators, I am using these bi-weekly curations for myself too. This week, I want to share three Black

Artwork by @ohhappydani – shop her prints and artwork here! If I have learned anything this week, it’s that I have so much to learn. I’m sure I’m not alone: this past week I have been reflecting, learning, absorbing, and lots of it. As I watch the Black Lives Matter movement unfold all over the globe, I have been grappling with so many emotions: sadness, frustration, humility – as well as figuring out my place

4 Ways to Trick Your Brain to Stop Shopping

We’ve all been there. You walk into your favourite boutique intending to buy one item and walk out with some extras and an emptier wallet. Our brains are powerful, and while marketing uses our emotions to encourage impulse shopping, there are ways to trick your brain to stop shopping, once and for all. If you’re more into listening and visuals, I have a video with even more ways to stop shopping here. I think it’s
