Try to leave the earth better a better place than when you arrived. —Sidney Sheldon
To kick off July, I’m thrilled to share issue No. 12 of my my monthly sustainable series, The Cut!
Before I dive in, I wanted to let my regular readers know that I have decided that I’ll be dropping the amount of articles I publish here on She Sweats Diamonds from three times a week to once a week. Don’t worry. My decision isn’t permanent as my plan is to go back to my regularly scheduled content when fall arrives.
To be transparent with you, I haven’t been able to sleep well for quite some time. To prioritize my health, I need to put this blog on the back burner a bit and focus more on self-care.
Although, I’ll be resting a lot for the next few months, it doesn’t mean that I won’t be brainstorming future content. I still plan to be active on my Instagram and will continue to send out my weekly newsletters. Make sure you follow me and subscribe to my email list (you can do this with the form on the right side of this page) to stay updated!
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.
Bleusalt is an ethical luxury fashion brand I found on Instagram. They make the most beautiful and neutral basics. Even though it’s summer and it’s hot as Dante’s Inferno outside, I have my eye on their henley tops. They look so comfortable and cozy. And they’re anti-microbial too!
Check out the focus on their environmental impact!
Milaner is an Italian-based brand I also discovered on Instagram. If you’re looking for luxury, well-made handbags, shoes, and accessories, look into their collection. I think their style is perfect for those summer days where you want to look and feel luxe, even if it’s at home for now.
I’m all about their love of craftsmanship, but I adore that they’re all about no-waste business practices.
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!
Although I haven’t purchased any Lawless products, I can tell you that I’ve swatched them in-store and love what I’ve seen so far! As of late, they launched a primer serum and blush, but I personally want to try the matte bronzer.
I first discovered Westman Atelier through a beauty blogger a week or so ago. If you’re looking for no-makeup makeup, I’d try Westman Atelier. Personally, I love barely-there makeup, especially for summer. I’m partial to the blush stick in Antique Rose shade. It’s so subtle and beautiful.
For those who want to see a review and swatches, I always look to Sabrina of The Beauty Lookbook.
I love they have a Clean Ingredients Philosophy listed on their website. They truly do care.
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!
Once mine wears down, I’ll be taking a look at their products as it instantly removes water, prevents mold, and dries quickly. I mean, who wants to step on a wet bath mat? Ew.
You can purchase Dorai Home products directly on their website.
I also Le Souf on Instagram while scrolling one evening. They shared an eco-conscious cutlery set that caught my eye. It turns out they have curated a beautiful collection for all your needs!
I love how Le Souf means “The Breath” and that they’re woman-owned, and pride themselves in being eco-conscious and inclusive! What’s not to love?
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.
The Good Trade is an online ethical community resource I’ve been following on social media recently. They cover everything from fashion, beauty, and lifestyle with guides, news, and the latest updates. I love that they also provide you guides on fashion, beauty, home, and lifestyle for you to better understand what sustainable living is all about and learn more about the ethical lifestyle.
And that’s it for the sixth 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.
