The Cut- No. 10 | She Sweats Diamonds - Tower 28 Beauty ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss

We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly. —Anne Marie Bonneau

Is it at all possible to have quarantine-brain? Because I almost forgot about this month’s The Cut post, you guys.

I’ve been so busy with personal family business and purging my life that I nearly forgot about this month’s post. And while we’re on this topic, I realized I haven’t even mapped out this month’s content either. Oy!

I feel like I say this with every post, but I’m so excited for this month’s sustainable living blog post series, The Cut!

Now that I’m thinking somewhat straight, I wanted to share some new brands I’ve discovered along with brands I already love who are doing their part for the environment/planet.

Let’s see who made this month’s list!


Fashion is a large contributor to our landfills and pollution. To help our planet, here are some more great fashion brands you can purchase from and still do good.


The fact that the tagline of Maison de Mode is “Luxury Ethical Fashion” makes my heart SO happy!

Although I don’t recognize 99% of the designer names on their roster, it’s so great to see many ethical luxury brands. To me, that just means more sustainable luxury designers to discover!


Since I’m a huge beauty lover, I’m super excited to bring you more clean beauty brands I recently found that you can experiment with. Feel free to play with beauty with me!


I recently discovered Tower 28 products during the Sephora sale a few weeks ago. I was looking for a beautiful gloss to brighten my spring and summer days and decided to take the plunge on their ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss.

Turns out they are a vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand too! I tried my shade this past weekend for Mother’s Day when I went to visit my mom and it’s perfect! To me, it’s everything I’m looking for in a gloss and now I want to try their entire beauty line!

You can purchase Tower 28 products directly on their website or on Sephora.


Davines is a hair brand I’ve used for years now. My stylist introduced this line to me and I never looked back. As a super thick-haired woman, I cannot recommend this hair line enough!

On top of that, their commitment to our planet through their Sustainable Beauty Manifesto makes me so thrilled and proud to be a huge fan of their brand!

I have their shampoo, conditioner, hair oil, and hair milk. Yep. I’m definitely loyal for life!

You can purchase Davines products directly on their website or on Amazon.


One of the biggest things I’ve started to do is to invest in items and services that are environmentally friendly. Here are my recent finds and don’t you worry, I’ll be sharing more eco-friendly brands pertaining to lifestyle as I find them!

I’ve been researching for a coffee and espresso machine for months. And the only brand I’ve found that would like to try that would also add to my eco-friendly lifestyle is Nespresso.

Their commitment to be a sustainable lifestyle brand is unreal! I love that they care to a point that they encourage their customers to recycle their aluminum capsules. On top of that, they support sustainable coffee farming and farmer retirement programs!

You can purchase Nespresso products directly on their website or on Williams-Sonoma.


To continue to keep you informed and make better choices for our planet, here are some fascinating sources and/or articles I found regarding sustainable living.


Instead of sharing articles this month, I wanted to send you over to my Pinterest account where I’ve created some sustainable living-related boards surrounding fashion, beauty, lifestyle (wedding included)! They’re scattered all over as I’ve organized them by categories rather than just sustainability.

And that’s it for the fourth issue of The Cut for 2020!

What did you like most from today’s post? Feel free to comment and let me know if there is anything else you’d like to see in this series!

Note: Please note that there’s a website called The Cut that covers a ton of topics for women including fashion and beauty. My blog post series is in no relation to The Cut website as it only focuses on sustainable, more mindful way of living.
