Why is consumerism such a slippery slope? I don’t know about you, but it seems like the more I buy, the more I buy. I hate feeling like I am on that (not so) merry-go-round. I recently read this article about Buy Nothing groups. Have you heard of them? Are you in one? I just signed up to join the one in my neighborhood.
Lunch is my least favorite meal of the day because I never know what to eat. Sandwiches are good, but I don’t want one every single day. The last month or so Mr. Seasons and I have been trying our hand at meal prep. Inspired by Paige, I bought these reusable containers off Amazon and we’ve been making variations of quinoa salads to go in them. We try and batch cook for the week, and it usually ends up being enough for each of us to have three days of lunches, which is very helpful when I’m busy and don’t want to stop to make something healthy. I feel way better after eating a well-rounded meal for lunch instead of chips and salsa. This week was Mexican(ish) Quinoa Salad by Cookie + Kate, my favorite to date!
STYLE + BEAUTY:
I haven’t photographed them for the blog yet, but last week I got a pair of the new Boss Boot (c/o Everlane) and I really, really like them. Historically I’ve struggled with Everlane shoes because they are too narrow for my feet. The Boss Boot has softer leather, and a less constricting fit, and they feel great, right out of the box. It’s nice to finally get a pair of shoes from Everlane that don’t require a significant break-in period. I usually wear a size 10, and I went with a 10.5 in these.
There is a new source for ethical undies! Well, new to me at least. White Rabbit sent me a few pairs to try, and I love their Leroy Boyshort! The moisture-wicking bamboo fabric reminds me so much of my favorite pairs from Grana (now discontinued). They are super comfortable and leave minimal panty lines. I look forward to giving this sustainably and ethically minded company my business when my undie drawer needs refreshing!
I love seeing the growing movement around menstrual cups. I feel like I am hearing about them now more than ever. A Portland company recently launched a Kickstarter for slim fit cup geared for younger people, called the XO Flo Mini. They haven’t met their funding goal yet, please check them out if this is something you’re interested in supporting.
I am thoroughly enjoying the results of my lash lift from Lash + Beauty Lab. They were kind enough to gift me their services, and I’ll likely be heading back for another lift in a few months. The price is $70, and it gives my natural lashes quite the boost. Instead of them being straight out, they gently curve up and away from my eyes, utilizing their full length. Combined with mascara, it gives my eyes a lot of boost (with minimal effort!). Just to show you guys, here are a few selfies (and I hate selfies, but these lashes are too good).
That one time I wore a blazer…
