The future for ethical + sustainable fashion is looking bright as a motherforker!
Brands like @nobodydenim, (pictured here) are ethical to the core. Nobody Denim strives to continuously identify ways to reduce their environmental footprint, while also adhering to a triple bottom line approach which sees people and the planet as integral to their decision-making and direction.
Or there’s the 2019 Redress Design Awards, the world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition focusing on emerging fashion designers and conscious consumerism. Now in its ninth cycle, designers from all over the globe are eligible to apply and learn about the fundamentals of sustainable fashion including up-cycling, reconstruction and zero waste (see the @getredressed IG page for more details).
With so many beautifully-made ethical and sustainable labels now readily available, it’s never been easier to wear your values. So go forth and ethically plunder, my friends!
P.S. Please stay tuned for my first YouTube video (😊 . . . 😬) on the above coming next week. Please someone promise to watch it, so I don’t look like a massive dweeb!
Oh and happy birthday @michelleobama, you glorious creature, you! 🎂
Unbelievable. I spent more than an hour on the phone with @spiritairlines being treated like freaking garbage!!! They sent an email to me regarding issues I’m having with my flight due to bad weather.
The first agent wasn’t able to help. I asked to speak to her manager and she was all sorts of rude and snobby. ALL. SORTS. Didn’t even feel like I was speaking to an employee. I asked to speak to HER manager and before I could even ask for her name and information- she transferred me. That’s when I was on hold for OVER AN HOUR!!!!! (I feel like she just never transferred me out of spite but what do I know) I then spoke to another agent named Johnathan (E14712) and explained to him the situation. Nothing. He did nothing but interrupt me and tell me he wasn’t able to do a single thing to help. He just kept apologizing on behalf of the previous agent.
Over an hour wasted. Over an hour. I have never received such unprofessional service. I have used spirit airlines for YEARS. I have been raving about this airline to my friends and loved ones.
Never again will I use this airline. Never again will I suggest them.
Is this how you train your employees @spiritairlines?
I get it. “You get what you pay for” but it costs absolutely NOTHING to be kind.
Can you guys share/comment/tag so that something can be done. I emailed corporate and I’m waiting for their reply. But with the way I was treated- I highly doubt they’ll do a damn thing.
Let’s talk about this cupcakes.... HORRIBLE!!!! WTF is that topper?!?!?’ 🤢
It’s pretty but tastes 🤢
It should be a tradicional red velvet but this topper.... I can’t even find a word to explain this.... it’s like 1Kg of sugar plus something bitter.... and isn’t a soft cream.... weird. #neveragain#cupcakes#cupcake#redvelvet#sobeys

Trixie. This damn cat. My little sunshine potato. Poopy, pooter, babushka, the pooter patrol, baby, the boy (Josh started this one.. she's female🤦♀️). As much as she pisses me off some days with her excessive meowing when she wants something, how she wakes me up before my alarm goes off, how she peed on the carpet when she was upset.. she's irreplaceable. She's the first cat whom I've ever got to call mine and mine only. Of course Josh will attest to that and say she's his-totally not true-.
She's an indoor cat, but I let her go outside when she whines. Usually it's in the morning. Our backyard is fenced off so it never bothered me as she had nowhere to go. Welllllll she figured out that can fit through an unhinged plank in the wood fence, as well as the other side where there's a small patch of chain link fence she can squeeze through where it and the house meets. She never goes far though and will come back quickly.
This morning was different. When I went to get her, she was completely out of sight. I couldn't find her. Couldn't hear her bell. I panicked. I spent about 15 minutes frantically looking around my neighborhood for her. It was at this moment I was reminded of how uncertain life can be. Totally freaked out, I got Josh out of bed to help look and sure as shit she came springing back herself. I was so relieved. I know it may sound overdramatic to some of you, but I love that bundle of fluff.
So now I bought her a harness and she hates it but still insists on going outside so it's all good LOL. Little bugger. ❤
I just wanted to pop in and give you all an update! We’ve seen our first cut of the film and it is looking great! There were a lot of scenes, camera angles, sound mixing, VFX additions, etc to start with and right now we are sitting just under 20 minutes in length. Wanting to get this just right, we still have some changes to make on the organization of the film before we head into color correction and the final edits. We hope to get the final film into about 12-15 minutes.
Luckily, we had such amazing people working with us on this film so we have some beautiful pieces to complete this puzzle. Our actors and extras did such a wonderful job – every scene looks so real. Obviously, our crew helped make all that happen too with the correct lighting, sounds, hair/makeup, and camera work.
Once we have a final cut, before the final editing, I will be able to set up some screening dates/locations for those who were involved and supported the film. Thank you all so much for supporting this film and our mission; your contributions, likes, and shares helped make this whole project happen. We couldn’t do it without you!

One month after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., students across the nation and at Rock Bridge walked out of class in solidarity with victims of gun violence. Organizers of RB’s walkout offered signs for students to hold, including ones that list names of victims and slogans such as #NeverAgain and #Enough. Photos by Maya Bell.

How I wish
There were a way to thread
You from the horizon line of my sight.
Oh deep regret
How I wish
You were not bulging such a violent
Pain in my backward thought. .
I said no to that timeline
But it pays me no mind
As it drips syrupy sorrow in my chest
Escape lost on desire so torn between bliss and birth pains
Even as the pitch vibrates my longing to snap.
Oh shy warning
In clenching fists
Of my deep disillusion
Knowing when the path is true eludes me
Great thread of love
What strength must my fingers have
To weave you deep into
The broken skin
Of my flimsy faith
Harrowing visions at night
Cloud my fear free sight
As I invite my demons to stay
Strange how the grace returns at the peak of deep unknowing
And clarity peacefully drapes
My shaking hands. .
So I'll ache through this detour
And watch it as it burns
To ashes the pain in my heart
Past and present
Prophetess regains her art.
I wrote this year's ago, about passing up an opportunity to explore the country, because of a fear of losing security, only to find myself unfulfilled in life and love.
Im more and more convinced in the fact that I'm a creative; that I'm meant to commit to sharring and making a living from my art, poetry, and music. All the negative beliefs are popping up, telling me to stop, to be practical, that it's not possible. But I'm seeing so many people acheive it. I'm ready, and I'll help all of those parts of me realize that we can do this. .
If you'd like to hear more, comment, like, or stay tuned.

As the granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor, I will never forget, and always share my families stories✡️ Multiple members of my family were murdered in Auschwitz, including my great grandparents, my great aunt Chava (who I am named after) her husband & two year old daughter, and many others.
My grandmother, her brother, & cousin survived their time imprisoned in Auschwitz. My grandfather fled his home & country the day before Nazi’s invaded his little town of Slonim and murdered his entire family. #neveragain
