THE CREATOR + EDITOR OF THIS BLOG.
Hello! I live on the Canadian West Coast with my husband and three beautiful girls. I recognize and acknowledge that I live on the unceded territories of the Qayqayt First Nation, as well as all Coast Salish peoples.
I write and share about Ethical + Sustainable Fashion, Secondhand Fashion, and BIPOC Canadian Business. I also share my own personal journey to body acceptance, and the highs and lows of being a mom of three. I also am a part time model (currently on hiatus due to the pandemic) and get to work with amazing local, inclusive brands. I hope to inspire fellow women and all folks to find peace with their body all while introducing them to the joy of thrifting, secondhand fashion, sustainable fashion brands, and BIPOC brands.
