One of the biggest lessons I have learned over the past five years is the power of Faith. A trust in something bigger than myself, an unwavering belief that I am exactly where I am supposed to be and a power in knowing that things will unfold just as they are meant to, even if it is hard to see. Trusting in this has been my greatest tool in getting through anything that comes my way.
It has been almost a year since I first met Scott and Nitsa of Sun Potion and was introduced to the magical world of tonic herbs and superfoods. As I have shared more about this incredible company, from a very special interview with Scott and Nitsa that can be read here, to a Sun Potion Instagram Takeover and many experiments + recipes dreamed up in the kitchen, one theme has remained. Everyone wants to learn more. So many of you have written, asking questions and ready to begin your journey. You want to understand what the tonic herbs and superfoods are, where they come and how you can incorporate them into your life.
I am over-the-moon excited to introduce today’s guide. In collaboration with Sun Potion we have put together a comprehensive look at all of the herbs Sun Potion shares, what they are, the benefits and how you can enjoy them in your life.
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.
An outfit is not just the clothes we choose to wear but a creative expression of our internal energy.
For years I went back and forth with the idea of sharing my outfits and personal style. Would it be viewed as narcissistic and materialistic? Would people judge me or even really want to see? These thoughts were based in fear and came from a misguided place.
It was before I really understood that every woman, of every age, size, race and ethnicity, is striving to deeply understand themselves. Personal style is one of the most monumental and powerful aspects of this.
