Guide to Renting Clothes Online

Yes, it’s true! Renting clothes is now easier and better than ever

One thing that I learned over the years while attending family parties, weddings, and special events? Looking like a Queen is EXPENSIVE.

A beautiful and luxurious outfit can run you anywhere from $100 to $1000 and I don’t know about you, but neither one of those price tags are worth it for one night on the town. I ended up with over 7 different stunningly beautiful dresses that never saw the light of day; that is a shame.

A fashion shame, I tell ya!

Whoever thought up the idea of renting was a genius. This multi-billion dollar industry is growing bigger and bigger with every single special event. Renting has become as easy as a few clicks, delivery information and drop off.

But the question is, is this sustainable and ethical?

Vegan Raspberry morning smoothie
Vegan Raspberry Morning Smoothie

Nothing like stealing some raspberries off of Mommy’s epic vegan raspberry morning smoothie! 

 
There are days where I am just not in the mood to cook breakfast even if it is only 5 minutes of work. I just want to fill up on beautiful and delicious fruits until my heart and belly are content.
 

Turn a “regular smoothie” into an “epic smoothie”

Vegan Raspberry Morning Smoothie

A regular smoothie will never fill me up the way a cooked breakfast will, but there is a trick to turn a “regular smoothie” into an “epic smoothie”. 

 

It’s all about the add-ins. When I know that the smoothie is my main source of energy for the morning, I load that beauty up with pretty much all the goodies that I can think of.

 

Here are a few examples that you can use:

  • Almond butter (about 1 tbsp)
  • Hemp seeds/chia seeds/flax meal (anywhere between 1 tsp to 1 tbsp)
  • Spirulina / Moringa / Ginger
  • Various lovely greens like cucumbers, kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, etc.

Notes

Every Sunday I decide on which smoothie our family will be enjoying for the week and create 7 smoothie bags filled with the fruits and veggies that will be blended. For this week I simply had 1 banana, 1 handful of pineapple and 1 handful of raspberries in each bag.
You can easily throw in a handful of greens as well but we were really feeling some bright colors this week due to the gloomy weather we have been having. 💓
Once the morning arrives, simply toss the frozen fruits/veggies into the blender with your plant milk and add-ins and blend! This saves a ton of time and avoids extra dishes.

How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe

How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe

What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

Your closet is a mess and you never seem to have anything to wear despite JUST going shopping. Sound familiar?

In the 1970s an amazing woman named Susie Faux coined the term “capsule wardrobe” to describe a collection of a few essential items that do not go out of fashion (such as skirts, pants, blouses, etc) that can be augmented with seasonal pieces. In 1985, Donna Karan took the capsule wardrobe idea and made it mainstream by releasing a capsule collection of seven interchangeable workpieces. Read more

Brand Spotlight: Organic Basics. It’s Time To Rethink Your Undies!

How did my journey to sustainable undies begin with Organic Basics??

Well, first of all, I swapped from disposable to cloth diapers for my children over a year ago for several reasons but one was major: the toxic ingredients inside. I spent months researching the horror of disposable diapers and, as a result, became a cloth diaper advocate.

Through all the hours of research I never once thought of my own underwear and, as a result, failed myself for far too long. Read more

why you should give ethical fashion a chance
Why You Should Give Ethical Fashion a Chance

Throughout the life of our website and social media pages, I have strived to not only be 100% honest with my words and intent, but I have also strived to DO better. To research, to share, to grow, to listen, to understand, and to work towards a better tomorrow.

One of the ways that our family has grown (by leaps and bounds) is with our conscious purchases. Not only by embracing minimalism but by researching the sustainability, practices, transparency, and ethics of each and every company that we open our wallets for. Read more
