Luxurious, Chic & Animal-Free // Niko Ineko

14th June 2019

Niko Ineko | Handbag Review

I received the most GORGEOUS bags from Niko Ineko last week. Y’all… I’m not joking. These bags are so incredibly beautiful and luxurious. Inspired by the magnificent Southwestern United States, I love how these resemble saddle bags with the most subtle detailing that amps it up and makes them the perfect classic accessory to your outfits.

The very best part? These luxurious, chic, beautiful bags are completely animal-free. They’re crafted from vegan leather that is so high-quality and feels SO nice. The brand has an incredible commitment to conservation and animal welfare that I admire so, so much. I love to wear brands that share beliefs that align with my own, and Niko Ineko is of no exception.

Summer CauseBox 2019

12th June 2019

 

Summer CauseBox

My first CauseBox came in the mail! Are y’all fans of the subscription-based services happening nowadays across beauty and fashion brands? I personally think it’s so much fun! I’m so guilty of repurchasing the same things over and over again, not because I love them, but because I’m comfortable with them. As an (upcoming) law student, I don’t have a ton of money to splurge on products I may or may not like. That’s why subscription boxes are a great alternative; these products are curated by stylists and industry professionals.

You guys know I’m such a fan of brands and products that are made mindfully, meaning that they are either fair trade or artisan trade and empower the lives of those who make them instead of perpetuating poverty. So, when CauseBox reached out to me to send me their summer box, I was super excited. My love for subscription boxes combined with ethically and sustainably made items is my dream come true.

Gen Z: Things You Should Know

7th June 2019

 

I just finished Gen Z Goes to College, a book by Corey Seemiller. I recommend it to literally everyone; it’s so, so important for us to understand the characteristics of this generation for a plethora of reasons. First off, Gen Zers are set to outnumber Millennials within the year (Bloomberg). We’ll (I see ‘we’ because I am a Gen Zer. I was born in 1996) will be the largest generation in the world. There are so many nuanced characteristics of this generation that differ so greatly from the generations before us.

Aluminum-Free Deodorant // Native

3rd June 2019

Native Deodorant

I’ve been wanting to make the switch to a more natural deodorant for years now. Previously, I was just using Secret or really, whatever I could find. I’ve never had the same problems that others have had when it comes down to finding a product that works for me, so I’m not too picky about it. However, I really did want something that is aluminum and paraben free.
