What I Wore Wednesday

Ummmm, can you say AWKWARD? I can.  Sorry these pictures are a little awkward, this is not my thing.  BUT I figured what an awesome way to share the blog and more importantly some great products that are making positive impacts! (Just a word of warning to my friends - I might start chasing you down on Wednesdays to take your picture instead of mine!) Cute outfit featuring Noonday & AfricanSoles Anyway, here is a shot of what I wore today.  Pretty cute, huh? BUT what really sets this outfit apart are two things:

The necklace from Noonday Collection and The Shoes from AfricanSoles.

What makes these two items so spectacular is that what I know about them.  I know a little about the person who created them and the working conditions that they were created in and, even more exciting, is knowing that by purchasing these items I'm supporting two great organizations and two beautiful women!  And that is something really special and makes me love these items even more! So let me show you a little more about these products.  The necklace, Mediterranean Sea Necklace from Noonday Collection, made by Prem:

And my lovely sandals are called, Florentine's Wish, and were made by...Florentine, of course! She lives in Uganda, is single mother of 5 kids, and her wish is to buy a sewing machine and own a tailoring shop someday! YAY, for Florentine, I am hoping and praying your wish comes true.  You make wonderful sandals and I am sure you will make an amazing tailor!  If you want to read more about these sandals and AfricanSoles read this post.

Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands

by Emily Betzler July 14, 2019

 As you know, we are in full-on BABY mode over here (and loving every minute of it)!

It seems like the baby game has changed quite a bit since our last baby- there are so many new ethical, small shop, sustainable and giveback brands and products that we've begun to fall in love with! While we still turn to 2nd hand/hand-me-down items as our first resort for finding items for our kids - (it is most economical and sustainable), it has been encouraging and fun to see the myriad of new options! We've loved trying out and supporting some of these brands as we shop with an impact, and are excited to share our recommendations with you! 

Here are our favorite ethical, small shop, sustainable giveback baby brands - and the products we have been using and loving in our everyday life!
