Enjoying those morning views before I get up and start the day. A little late but I needed to recover from that market filled weekend. On the docket for today: product photos and the start of a new project. What are you lovelies up to today?
Little things blossom and grow into big things. 🌻Like Fair Trade. When I wake up on the wrong side of the bed, these little guys make me smile into my morning meditation routine. 🌻What little things are in your life that make you smile? What little things can you do this holiday season that may blossom and grow into big things? Isn't it funny how a little plant can change my morning? 🌻Fair Trade purchases change lives. Small things blossom and grow. #ShopFairTrade#HipToBeFair#GlobalGrooveLife
Timi Komonibo pledged 75% #secondhandfirst
Her #secondhandfirst story might sound familiar - sharing, mixing and matching. 'I am one out of three girls in my family, so I have always enjoyed the benefits of an open closet policy. I started a start-up called Style Lottery to spread the secondhand fashion love with my community.
The outfit I'm wearing features a second-hand leather jacket that I found in the kids' section, paired with a thrifted mustard mini skirt, along with a pair of black oxfords given to me by my sister because they didn't fit her. That's how most of my outfits are: a mixture of something new, something borrowed, something thrifted, and always something that shows off my personal style.
So many great pieces already exist out there, so shopping second-hand has never stifled my style. I can focus on curating my wardrobe with clothes that have a story behind them.' Take TRAID's #secondhandfirst pledge here: https://traid.org.uk/secondhandfirst-pledge/ and share your second-hand story.
But seriously, who would have thought that #organichaircare could delivers such incredible results? Here we used our 01 Volumizing Water on damp hair, and finished off the style with our miracle 99 Styling Mask! 👌🏻 #makethedifference
I’m often asked about the why behind Sela Designs, the purpose. Sela Designs exists so that we can give in a way we otherwise wouldn’t be able. I make jewelry from eco-friendly, well sourced materials and donate all of the profit (yes, ALL) to charity. Let me tell you a story...
I’ve always had a passion for orphans. About 5 years ago, I spoke of this passion and pleaded with others to join me in the good work of orphan care. -
Orphan care can be done in a lot of ways, not all good and not all right. I’ve partnered with organizations like @esmafrica that are doing orphan care the right way. -
Anyway, about 6 weeks after I very publicly spoke of this passion a woman asked my husband and I to please adopt her unborn grandchild. The situation was messy, very messy. The cost was far beyond our means. We didn’t know how it could possibly happen, but I knew that this baby was a gift from God. We said yes. -
This baby should have probably not survived the pregnancy, let alone birth and the week after. She was born extremely sick and addicted to cocaine. The situation with the birth mom was difficult, unprecedented and so very messy. We pressed on. -
That baby, our daughter, is now 4 years old. She is healthy and a fighter. She is strong, brave and beautiful. She never had to be an orphan. She never had to go through that type of suffering outside of the womb. For that we are forever grateful. -
There are millions of other children in this world who don’t have a family right away, who don’t know love & acceptance. We can’t just take them all home with us, but we can get behind and support the people who do. We can support organizations that are taking orphan care seriously and doing the beautiful work of loving these children well. -
That’s the heart behind Sela Designs. That’s our story. What will yours be? Together we can effect change. We can help many, many more children when we work together. When you purchase a gift from Sela Designs this year that’s where your money will go. Let’s change the world, one piece of jewelry at a time. ❤️
Nowadays, it seems almost commonplace to find out everyday products we use on our babies contain toxic ingredients. Clothing is no exception...todays blog post provides “7 Tips for Minimizing Toxins in Your Baby’s Closet.” Link in bio 👆🏻. 📸: Instagram
REUSE. These @allsaints boots were a sweet find at @buffaloexchange in Dallas. They retailed for about $320 (no longer in production), I got them for $60. I love buying gently used boots bc someone else already wore them in a bit so I know if they will actually be comfy (however these did NOT survive the nyc street test but do fine in Dallas). 🌿 ⠀
Anyhoo, the bulk of my wardrobe has come from Buffalo Exchanges around the country for 20 years. Because:⠀
(1) Wide variety of styles, cuts, time periods always avail ⠀
(2) Things filter in from all over the world ⠀
(3) I don’t get precious about keeping things in the closet once I’m over them bc I didn’t drop a ton of cash ⠀

STAGE 5: straining the dye bath (day 4). This is what the Logwood looks like after being strained from the dyebath. I start with 100g of Logwood for 200g of fibre, then the dyebath can be reused to get a lighter shade.
STAGE 6: rinsing the yarn and putting it in the dyebath (day 4). I rinse the excess alum from the dyebath before dyeing. My fingers were frozen after lifting them out of the mordant bath (I keep the bucket outside). I'm trying to try to not show too much of the yarn yet because Bryan wants it to be a surprise. The yarn goes into the dyebath, is brought up to a simmer then heated for 30 minutes. I'll leave it to soak until tomorrow.
I also cooked the Brazilwood dyebath this morning which will go through the same process as the Logwood.
