OUR {UN}BLOG

This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

Something to also keep in mind: Organic is a guarantee of safety not quality, always take the time to know where your purchases are coming from too. (more…)

Everything you need* to go back

Starting something new can often equate to spending a lot of money. Whether you’re beginning a new school year, heading off to college, or going back to the office after a break, you’ll likely need a few new supplies, but by being smart, a.k.a. “green,” you can take away a lot of the running around stress and certainly save plenty of your hard earned dollars and your health, too, now and throughout the year.

Don’t Let Assholes Derail You

As a business, dealing with assholes can be annoying. As a small business, dealing with assholes can be derailing – if we let them…and we know, first hand, they will try. It’s taken me years of practice, and sadly, much too much experience to even feel like I have enough expertise in this department to write this “how-to” post. (more…)
