Today’s thrift store scores helping to keep my Virgo self organized. I just found a note with my astrological chart that my dad gave me years ago. It says my moon, sun, ascendant and venus are all in Virgo. No wonder I overthink everything, or maybe I’m just overthinking it (sorry, dad joke).

I’ve been a little absent on here lately while I focus on some updates to the brand bios in our directory. Also working on some new additions. One of those newbies is @mienstudios, a local LA clothing line by designer Lisa Hsieh. She’s been on my list for some time and I’m so excited to finally include her lovely brand. As a mama herself she makes pieces that are meant to help simplify our lives with easy, comfortable, versatile clothing. Lisa designs with life stages in mind, providing sections on her site for items that are pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly. Her collection also includes some adorable pieces for little ones. You can read more about her line in the directory and the features section of my site. Oh, her jersey fabric is locally manufactured and GOTS certified organic cotton too! Pictured is Mien’s Painter Shirt in Cedar Green, paired with a second hand/vintage nightgown (that I wear as a dress).

Very excited to dive into this one. My ears have been gobbling up the Wardrobe Crisis podcast by @mrspress. She speaks with change makers from around the world and is always V inspiring. Can’t wait to read her second book Rise & Resist, I’ve got to be honest I haven’t read the first yet (finding a copy is on my to do list). Sometimes I do things in a funny order. Anyways, I definitely recommend her podcast, its so informative but also uplifting because she speaks with some really wonderful people. My platform can be kind of pigeonhole-ish sometimes because I focus on locally made (within the USA). But ethical and sustainable issues are much bigger than that. It’s a global problem and a lot of important conversations/changes are taking place in other countries. Clare Press highlights people pushing for (and creating) a change for the better. Ok clearly a fan girl, I get very excited about this stuff!

Ceramic love, with @artisanartifacts and @mehaceramics.

The @gogentlynation Shirt Dress (worn here as a duster) is currently on sale along with some other great pieces for women and kiddos. The dress (duster) is made from 55% hemp + 45% organic cotton, manufactured in the USA and currently $115. Pretty great price for a locally made versatile piece with eco friendly fabric.

@gjenmi made me the gold band of my dreams this holiday season, a gift from my husband (that I picked out... and ordered...am I the only control freak that does this). Both my engagement and wedding rings are vintage and I adore them!! But they are also almost 100yrs old and the metal has worn thin in certain areas, so I worry about damaging them with everyday wear. My engagement ring I have been wearing on a chain close to my heart and my wedding ring (which actually looks like an engagement ring) I wear for special occasions. So this simple and lovely little band is the perfect stand in (it also stacks great with the others when I do wear them). It’s a custom version of the Large Secret Ring, which typically comes with a conflict free diamond (it’s gorgeous guys). I wanted something plain, easy and able to stand up to the rough and tumble lifestyle of my hands. Thanks for the perfect piece Gjenmi!! #madeinla #ethicallymade #shoplocal

Up early, thinking about photo shoots. Outtake from our 2017 shoot with @alexaphoto, @ozma_of_california and @mashabacer. #madeintheusa #thesenativegoods

Trying to blend in with nature (while indoors), wood earrings help I think.

Not starting off 2019 in the best way. My kiddo and I are both sick in bed, last night when it rained water came pouring into our bathroom and I am massively behind on just about everything. But at least I get cuddles.

Another year, another perfect @rachelpally piece. Basically the easiest outfit ever, just step in and zip up. Second hand shoes from @therealreal + LA made Barrel bag by @are_studio + baby manzanita trees from my dad (and other plants).

I’ve been a little MIA this holiday season, trying to spend time with visiting family and unplugging a bit. But I hope you all are having a wonderful time celebrating with loved ones. Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and beautiful New Year. Looking forward to what 2019 brings, excited for new adventures, collaborations and growth. While out to lunch in our old neighborhood today I popped into the new @littlemoonsociety store. The line makes one of my daughters favorite dresses and has put together a lovely curation of other local designers. Loved seeing such a sweet little shop in my old stomping grounds. Here’s to more hand crafted goods, thoughtful manufacturing and support of local makers in the new year.

I know it’s kind of a random time for anything other than a holiday post, but skincare has been on my mind. And I guess skin issues do arise with all the weather changes and holiday stress. I’ve talked a lot about my cousin at @natural_feeling_spa, she recently gave me a new routine to follow and I just shared the steps on the site. I was having some concerns because my skin was in a pretty bad place, apparently I was leaving a lot to be desired with my personal care habits. If you’re currently hiding in a corner trying to avoid awkward family conversations give it a read.
