Beauty products that heal: Prostitutes & addicts transformed by Thistle Farms

We all love hearing about a new for-benefit company, where a business has built its concept around benefitting a social cause. Most for-benefits are based in Africa or other impoverished countries, which is completely awesome — but there’s something especially impactful about hearing about one in my own country. It hits closer to home, literally. [...]

Fjällräven’s got your back

It’s been a long time since I’ve considered carrying a backpack, but right now, there’s something just right about them. Fjällräven’s Kånken backpack was designed in 1978 and still has the same design and quality today. “At Fjällräven we strive to make products that will last you a long time and even be passed down [...]

Your new favorite scarf: Both ethically made and fashionABLE!

By my estimation, fashionABLE is as much a company about redemption as it is about scarves. The African-based scarf brand employs and empowers women who previously worked as prostitutes, and it takes every opportunity to tell each woman’s story. My Bezuayhu scarf (top) is a nice sublte design and the perfect weight. (Especially for spring!) It’s [...]

Happy V-Day

Of all the love-related jewelry out there, this one is the only piece that brought a smile to my face. Quite the statement! Ha! And for my more “casual relationships,” I’m sending Kate Spade e-valentines, each designed by thirty or so notable designers. (My favorites are the ones by Alice Lam and Allison Henry.) They [...]

Gift it: Glass straws

I love straws, but I hate throwing them away. Last month at the Heath sale I bought two of these (The Bends, no relation to Radiohead), and I never would have considered GLASS for my permanent straws, but Glass Dharma has a lifetime guarantee against breakage. Amazing! The straight ones start at $7.50, and the [...]

Gift it: Fair trade luggage tags from SET Boutique

For whatever reason, I think that luggage tags are a great gift — one of those use-every-once-in-a-while things that you’re glad you have when the time is right. These $12.50 tags are from SET Boutique, an online store of all fair-trade items that my friend Lindsay opened this summer. Lindsay is a former production artist for [...]

Recycled wine bottle tumblers

I’ve long been a fan of the recycled wine bottle tumblers sold by Heath, but… $19 per glass? I did a quick search and found these on Etsy, which are $33 for the set of four. They’re made by BottleHood in San Diego, who gets their bottles from shops and restaurants in their neighborhood. (They [...]
