Talk about growth. I didn't want to be at the hottest party nor the best open bar. I got text that told me about both despite people being shady per usual. But I wanted to be in the room of my clients, scoping the scene to pick up new clients. I don't want to party with @diddy, I want to be @diddy. And don't want to fake importance, I want to be important. Like I said CBC is a funny time of year. #theworkingbeauty#thriftexpert#cbc2017takeover 🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹🔹

THE SWEETEST PEOPLE I KNOW 🍭 🍬 🍦: For the most part, I have spent the last decade of my life fundraising so that kids in Cambodia can access quality education. Take from the rich. Give to the poor, was how I imagined it. But not quite...in those 10 years I have learnt something curious about people. The most generous, kindest and courageous of us all, were the broken ones. The ones that had experienced turmoil and tragedy, yet still saw beauty all around them.
A homeless man came into my shop once, and promised to buy a bag when he had money. Two weeks later he came back, and kept his promise, buying a bright yellow one. He refused to take it for free. He told me that despite how little he had, he felt he was the fortunate one, the rich one.
His contribution of small dollars enclosed with his heart, is worth more to me than any million or millions a corporation or millionaire or billionaire could care to give. .
And here we are presented with this vote. So that a minority group in our community can be treated like equals with the majority. And yet, we are experiencing resistance. And again, the same generous, kindest and courageous people that have supported me all these years. The broken ones, the misfits, the ones that live on the fringe of society, the discriminated, the excluded, the poor, the homeless. Are the ones that have stood up again. Because they understand. They are the sweetest people I know. .
The rainbow collection 🌈 launches today. A significant chunk of the sales will be donated to the Marriage Equality campaign. We would love it, if you proudly flashed your rainbow, photograph it and share it with us and the world. And next time you meet some resistance. Please throw them some serious rainbow shade for us 😉. All the little details of the Rainbow Collection can be viewed and purchased at www.beekeeperparade.com (link in bio). ❤❤❤
Deciding to keep something usually happens during shooting... like this crisp white vintage crop🌚#keeper
But knowing me, I could change my mind next time I put it on, so don't be that surprised if you see it on the site😂
#repost from the totally rad @IndigoandSalt Surf Collective (make sure you read their profile info below the quote!):
"REDUCE (your consumption by buying quality made items), RE-USE (wear over and over and love, love, love!), RECYCLE (buy sustainable gear made from ghost fishing nets and recycled carpets) Sustainability. Simple really.” Couldn't agree more!
Check out the @IndigoandSalt Surf collective – Such cool vibes. There’s so much to shout about!
“Indigo + Salt is more than a surf store. It's a bringing together of likeminded women, a space to feel nurtured and a space where spirituality can grow. It's a push for sustainability and awareness. It's a community. It's our community… It's about supporting the brands and encouraging alternatives. Together we can make a difference.”
Founders, Sarah and Lauren, have curated suppliers – surfwear, swim wear, wetsuits, sun cream, skin care, homewear – with a focus on femininity, performance in the water and sustainability.
“It's still early days in the movement towards surfing sustainability and we are very excited to be supporting many designers and brands who choose to continually seek ways to be greener. There is a real movement in consciousness and it's great. There is so much at stake. We as surfers, mothers and ocean lovers, are aware of the troubles this planet faces. Our oceans are really at a crisis point, plastic is suffocating our earth, and our rainforests are disappearing before our eyes. Orang-utans are suffering every day at the hands of the palm oil industry. Before too long, there won't be much of a planet left to leave our children. Indigo + Salt has one main goal; to be honest and ethical.”
100% transparent. Palm oil free. Doing their damnedest to be plastic free. No petrochemicals or toxins. Encouraging suppliers to be plastic free, or using recycled packaging. No plastic bags. 100% recycled office paper. Encourage green power and carbon offsets.

Sampling madness, material hunting, design refinements, website build, photoshoot scrambles and late night meetings (SO many late night meetings) - all been worth it to get where we are now! I wouldn't trade this opportunity to help others for anything and I am so excited for our new launch in a couple of days. So proud of the rest of the team at @duffleandco and all the amazing people who helped us get there, I have so much love for you and am eternally grateful! Here's to you @_braddles @crstf @mirzanurman @d_pritta @kaizerdaniel, @chantellglenvi, Ryan and everyone else who has supported us! 🍷✨👊🏻

‘Never write when you are bleeding
words will cheat you
and flow like blood wrapped in uncensored emotions falling on the paper to never leave their imprint
You will hurt like somebody punched you in the gut
Fall asleep instead’
