Conscious commerce is a state of mind. It is shopping with purpose, for items that bring joy to your life and help you express your inner light. It is in support of small businesses, of creators, men and women who are dedicated to their craft. To use your dollar with passion, thought and awareness. It is bringing an end to mindless purchasing and creating a wardrobe that supports the life you dream of.
This is a topic that is close to my heart and one that I have been exploring for quite some time now. On the surface, it is meant to bring awareness back into fashion-related purchases. To put an end to mindless spending and remove shopping aimlessly, often times resulting in acquiring more items that don’t fit into your closet/lifestyle.
As we dig deeper it becomes so much more. It is realizing that every time you are making a purchase, you are voting with your dollar and that vote counts. It is supporting companies that are creating sustainable fashion, or shopping vintage/consignment and recognizing that these practices are supporting the planet for future generations. It is making purchases with thought and love.

1. I love the concept behind Gem + Remedy and have been keeping my bracelet on for positive vibes all day long.
2. Can’t get enough of Kinfolk for consistently inspirational content.
3. I was first introduced to Good Fight Herb Co. through Jessa Blades. I have been enjoying their organic, medicinal herbs grown in New York. They have fantastic potions, syrups and more – definitely worth checking out.
I first met Scott and Nitsa of Sun Potion at their Potions 101 class held at my favorite natural beauty store in the city, CAP Beauty. I was immediately entranced by their glowing energy and the knowledge they brought with such openness to share. Within minutes of sipping their tonics I was buzzing with the most life-changing clarity and energy I ever had (I am not using that term loosely, it was transformative). At that moment I instantly fell in love with these herbs and knew they were about to become a major part of my life and wellness regimen.
