Since I’ve lived my entire life in California, the outdoors have always been a big part of my life. In my childhood I spent hours playing outside and as I grew older I turned to other outdoor activities like running, camping, and trips to the lake. As an adult some of my favorite trips involve the great outdoors and although other places are beautiful, there’s no place that has my heart as much as my own backyard. Today I’ve partnered with Athleta to share some of my favorite places to hike in California as well as a look at their new sustainable line.
Ever since I started a quest to make my closet “feel good”, I’ve been much more conscious of my shopping habits. One of the ways I’ve been more conscious is to look for a feel good alternative when I fall in love with something I know may not feel good to buy. Here are a few of my favorite winter items, as well as their feel good alternative to consider.
For quite some time now I’ve been trying to convert my minimal wardrobe to items that are eco-friendly and sustainable. Of course if you already have and love an item, the most sustainable thing you can do is keep it! But if your items wear out and you find yourself in need of a new one like I have lately, finding a feel good brand to get it from is a great option. If you read often, you know that I’ve always been a big fan of Everlane and their new denim launch had me doing the happy dance…
Something that is always on my mind when I’m planning a party is trying to make it as Earth friendly as possible. For me, this means serving food that I would normally buy for our home, creating as little waste as possible, choosing a theme that isn’t too detailed, and keeping a small amount of entertaining essentials around. No matter how I go about being eco-friendly with my entertaining, with Earth Day coming up I thought I’d take some time to share some ways that I try to host a more Earth friendly party.
