You will love her down-to-earth and practical tips for a simply beautiful life. I'm so thrilled to share Olivia's interview with you today!

Emily: international explorer and ethical fashionista

To be honest, the first thing that drew me to Emily's account on Instagram was the aesthetic. I mean, it's just so pretty! But as I began to follow her, I became more intrigued with the life that she and her husband were living in South Korea. Emily is the very definition of a conscious consumer and has exhibited such great wisdom in both ethical fashion and responsible financial decisions.

secondhand vs. splurge

Most of us are on some sort of a budget, especially when it comes to clothing. With the higher price-tag of ethical items, shopping secondhand is a great way to save some cash without supporting fast-fashion. However, if you have the ability to save up and buy something new, it can be a wonderful investment in your wardrobe. This post is dedicated to helping you determine what items are truly worth buying new and what items can easily be found secondhand! 

Danae: joyful and conscious consumer

Danae and I go way back. We attended the same high school (although during different years) in a small town and have more mutual friends than I can count! She has a gift of making everyone around her feel welcome and instantly known. I've been to impressed at Danae's commitment to shop ethically no matter the cost. You're going to love this gal! 

elevated basics that are ethically made (and I'm never taking off)

When it comes to building an intentional wardrobe, the best items to invest in are the ones you'll wear on a daily basis. It's worth taking the time to find basics that are sturdy and comfortable. Even a simple tee can make you feel confident and classy when it's made well. Free Label is a Canadian-based ethical brand that has perfected the art of "basics" in a sustainable way.
