Good news to brighten your day & give you hope

Oh, how I love sharing good news with all of you, especially when there’s so much of it that I need to share it all in one post. The days are getting away from me, but I couldn’t wait to share this information, especially since I’ve mentioned many of these issues and topics before, so [...]

Backpacks, rucksacks, whatever you call them… I love these!

With the possibility of school coming up for me very soon (looks like I may be in England as early as the 17th of September!), I’ve got backpacks on my mind. And not just any ol’ backpacks, these backpacks! I have a trusty Jansport backpack that I’ve had since middle school (I said it was [...]

Out of Print: books on shirts, shirts on a mission

I used to wear tons of graphic shirts that held absolutely no meaning behind the design and, since noticing that I was a walking advertisement for something that didn’t even exist, I’ve stopped wearing them. But these shirts are ones I could get behind, or, well… in. Out of Print is more than just a [...]

Four Leaf Clover at Vegan Era

I’m now a new contributor for Vegan Era, a website dedicated to spreading love, peace and compassion, specifically through veganism. So far they’ve published my Simple Shoes for a happy planet article and, as I’m their vegan fashion contributor, you’ll be seeing more of my vegan fashion over there (and, since I’m vegan, that means [...]

The not-so-fab fad: feather hair extensions

I’m sure you’ve seen feather extensions all over these days from celebrities to fashion spreads to people on the street, but did you know there’s more to those feathers than what meets the eye? Yes, some feathers are fake, but chances are they came from roosters that were killed to get them. According to PETA, [...]

A wallet that gives and looks good

Not only do these wallets from Holstee look vibrant and fantastic, they help people and the planet, too! The originals were already awesome, but now they’re even brighter. They’re upcycled, fair trade, and vegan. Holstee teamed up with Conserve India who collect plastic bags around Delhi, India and turn them into fashion like these functional [...]

Good news all around: Portland, Peru, & Puma

Lately, there’s been so much good news, I had to write up one single post to fit it all! There was even more than this, but I decided to cut it down and just feature these three great bits of news. 1. Portland Oregon is the Latest City to Ban Plastic Bags: This ban that [...]

Four Leaf Clover at Globe Trotting in Heels & Vegansaurus

This Sunday I was featured on Elisa’s Globetrotting in Heels blog for her Sunday Trippin’ series! Elisa is quite the traveler and she currently lives just a train ride away from me in Zürich! For the series, I had to answer questions about a summer trip I’d love to take and now I’m dreaming about [...]

Four Leaf Clover at The Eclectic Life

I was so pleased to be asked by Vivien of The Eclectic Life to be part of a summer series on her blog. One question was “what is your must-have pair of shoes for the summer?” and, honestly, I had trouble choosing. I was going to share a photo of me wearing a pair of [...]

Do you wash your new clothes before wearing them?

I don’t want to gross you out, but I think you should know about this. Last year I came upon an article titled “Why You Should Wash New Clothes Before Wearing” by Social Vibe which shocked me and made me cringe. Whenever I bought new clothes, I couldn’t wait to put them on and would [...]
