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, awareness and intention. It is bringing an end to mindless purchasing and creating an environment that supports the life you dream of.
YOKE is a company that embodies everything you could want when it comes to connecting with the goods that you purchase and surround yourself with. Started in 2012 by Tamara Jones (keep your eyes peeled for a very special interview + collaboration announcement this week!) it is a collection of Ayurvedic Apothecary plant-based beauty, a giving-based accessories line and yoga-inspired ritual homewares.
Earth Tu Face has quickly become one of my favorite skincare lines and it is not even a question that I will be re-ordering everything I used as well as exploring more of the line. In this journey to a more natural beauty routine, I have realized that it is not just about the actual products I am using but the story behind them. It creates a very special connection and sacred ritual in my routine as well as positive energy in the way I am using my dollar. Through my research and experience with Earth Tu Face, I have become a huge fan of herbalists Sarah Buscho and Marina Storm, the creators of the brand. Nothing makes me happier than to be able to support a company who is creating skincare with the motto, “you should never put on your skin what you wouldn’t put in your mouth.”
When I first discovered Addictive Wellness I thought it must be too good to be true. A sugar-free chocolate, made with raw cacao, superfoods, herbs, fair-trade and free of any ingredients I was allergic to? This was a rare find and I knew I had to taste it to believe it! Sage and AnnaBlanca were kind enough to gift me their chocolates and upon arrival I immediately made a pot of tea to sit down and taste-test. The feeling of euphoria that washed over me after the first bite was priceless. High-quality, nutritious and and insanely delicious, I knew I found my go-to dessert and diet staple that was going to satisfy me and nourish my body. Sage and AnnaBlanca are both extremely bright stars, passionate and fun-loving in changing the way we think about chocolate. I adore them both and am thankful for the work they do. This is the food of love and it is time to enjoy it without the guilt or afternoon energy slump. One bite of Addictive Wellness and you will be hooked for life (I know I am)! Now let’s get to know the beautiful couple behind this truly addicting treat!

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.
