My roommate and I spent last Sunday in Melrose for one last hurrah on our last weekend at school before summer break and we made sure to hit up all the fun spots. We spent lots of time and money at Melrose Trading Post — if you’re in need of new jorts, a flannel, or a Hawaiian shirt, go here first. My first RocksBox also came a few weeks ago with three pieces and I was so excited to try them out. It’s also a better way to change out your jewelry — instead of buying cheap accessories form Forever 21 or H&M, you can just switch it out with RocksBox. ~so sustainable and fun!!~. And even more fun, with the code tunesandtunicsxoxo you can get your first month of RocksBox fo’ free!!… View Post

When I talked with Local Wolves I was only a few months into my Sustainability & Style initiative, so it was interesting to read what I said back then and think about how I’m doing now. Boy has a lot changed.… View Post

My favorite mural around USC is this one that says Earth Day Everyday. That saying kept going through my mind all day today. People focus on the Earth and all that it does for one day of the year. This is great, don’t get me wrong — it’s important to have people thinking about the impact they have on the planet. But then April 23rd rolls around and it’s just another day. And yes, while I do think a little bit more about the food I’m wasting and the packaging I’m throwing away on Earth Day, I don’t just forget all about it tomorrow. We use the Earth every single day and every moment of every day, so why should we only focus on it/talk about it /think about it/Instagram about it for one day?… View Post

After going to China, touring factories, spending time in their fake malls and breathing in alarming amounts of polluted air, it was refreshing to come back to California and have a package from Bblackbox waiting for me in my dorm room. Bblackbox is a California-based company that sells everything from candles to backpacks to jewelry to notebooks to sweatshirts and sweatpants. They’re an artist collective; they all hand-make their products in their US-based industrial grade studios and consider all parts of their production. They repurpose scrap material, donate and resell surplus materials, and everything is Made in the good ole USA. They’ve also partnered with Love146 and Living Water International, non-profits that focus on eliminating child trafficking and providing clean drinking water to impoverished parts of the world, and are donating 10% of their profits to these organizations. Bblackbox is doing some pretty incredible stuff.… View Post
