Eco Fashion is Finally Here

PMD Eco Fashion

By Estelle Hayes When I hear the words eco and fashion together I can’t help but giggle. I just think Birkenstocks and loads of beige hemp fabric. The folks at Fashioning Change are proving me wrong with a genius regular feature called “Wear this, not that.” They compare beautiful dresses like these two from Etrican, which are made from unbleached, organic cotton (and they’re affordable) and from an ethical company to similar outfits from Urban Outfitters and Banana Republic. I’m loving this site and finding new-to-me brands that I feel good about supporting every single Read More →

Asana Green final final Collage

By Estelle Hayes Raising your consciousness with a regular yoga practice, but still getting your gear at a big box store? Yeah, me too. But I’m ready to make a change. Think about investing in yoga wear and gear that has been made under fair labor regulations, while sourcing organic and sustainably produced materials.

The Cleantini: vodka makes a great diamond cleaner

PMD one clean thing jewelry cleaner

By Estelle Hayes About once a quarter I crave an ice cold vodka martini, dirty with extra olives. But who knew my craving could do double duty? Turns out a little soaking and swishing in a bowl full of vodka will get your diamonds sparkling like they are brand new. After a little boozy soak take an extra soft baby toothbrush to your ring and gently brush the grime of daily life. Finish up with a clean rinse of water. Then mix yourself a jaunty cocktail and admire your handiwork. Do you have any homemade recipes Read More →
