Halfdays offers women's ski jackets & snow pants in vibrant colors; no more 'shrink it and pink it'. Even more, they're woman-owned & committed to sustainability.
I recently came across Halfdays ("outdoor apparel for the modern woman") and was immediately impressed with their aesthetic. Skiing (like many other sports) tends to cater to men, and the gear made specifically for women often feels like an afterthought. I once rented some mens' performance skis in Utah...simply because (according to the guide), the men's skis were...
Handmade jewelry from a Black-owned business....I fell in-love with BR Design Co + their playful earrings in all sorts of colors, shapes & textures.
My future sister-in-law (no pressure on my brother!) bought me a pair of stud earrings for my birthday this past December (Capricorns unite). "I thought you'd like them because they're studs" (practical, yes) "and because they are from a small Black-owned business." (YES. QUEEN. Marry this woman immediately before I do, Jack).

Once again proving that Nichole of Shop Mrs. Jones is inside our heads...she just launched, for the sick-of-sweatpants crowd (yessss), this flannel jumpsuit.
We've been Shop Mrs. Jones superfans ever since we discovered her made-for-sneakers-dress. I was hoping Nichole (the designer) would come out with something just as fun for winter, but she's a one-woman shop, so I had to wait for it. This Flannel Jumpsuit Is The Cure For Your Sweatpants Blues Once again proving that Nichole's inside our heads...she just launched,...
Our sustainable fashion favs (a bit different from our usual shades of darkness, #thankyouverymuch). Think: creamy beige, gray, black...w/ some gorg burgundy thrown in.
We're back with some monthly sustainable picks -- winter edition. I've been basically drooling over the clothes I'm going to wear once this pandemic is over...and all the loungewear I haven't yet managed to get my hands on. Below I rounded up my sustainable favorites (some are even a bit different than my usual shades of darkness, thank you...
It's that time again: we're sharing our favorite items from Black-owned businesses that we've been drooling over (literally -- there's chocolate and cookies involved here). I also can't get over this Zelie for She Flower Child Set Kat picked out. It's on sale now and the most incredible print for spring. Love. Baked Goods, Bold Prints & Accessories: January...
I felt better about sipping a cocktail after I slapped on makeup, a spritz of perfume & decorated mahself w/ jewels. THAT is how my joggers + jewelry outfit was born.
Scotti and I were recently guests on Momtourage's video podcast, Live From The Couch! In our episode we discussed holiday style...but with a decidedly 2020 bent. Which means joggers, obviously. The Unexpected Answer To Dressing Up Joggers? Jewelry I had a realization several weeks ago — after a day of sweatpants and unwashed hair and no-makeup — that I...
To spark joy, we're going sustainable. Think handmade, artisanal, eco-friendly, Black-owned, fair trade & community supporting. Beautiful home decor, right this way.
I went in search of sustainable home decor inspiration, because I wanted to take a minute to celebrate the folks out there who work extra to create, find, and/or source items that are handcrafted — by artisans, sustainably and to support communities — that this community might otherwise not have access to. All of the businesses highlighted below...
