"Love is not about being the same. Love is about two humans appreciating one another. These are not pretty words—this is important. And if it is important, then we must laugh.
You are almost always cold; I am almost always warm. You like the blinds closed; I need the Sun to wake up. I like the windows open; you like to have two comforters and seven layers of old striped blankets (I counted), and me.
We will work it out: the windows will be open so I have my fresh air and breeze, and the heat will be low because I try to be an environmentalist but I will buy you warm slippers and make you tea and you can steal my big cardigans. And you will just have to get used to letting the Sun wake your sweet self up. You get all the blankets, I will fold them up over you and sleep with less.
You like your pancakes and bacon, you love fresh fish and good steak, I like pigs when they are alive—'they’re smarter than dogs'—and for breakfast I like hippie stuff: organic granola and an organic banana and organic dark crunchy peanut butter in a glass jar and raw local honey and fresh-baked cinnamon raisin bread from a brown paper bag; we both love big salads with too many things in them like olives and artichoke hearts.
We both like coffee in the morning, of course.
We will work it out, without compromising. But too we will each be the first to give an inch, many times over.
The key is not to take it personally, because I know your bedrock, and you know mine. The key is that you and I would like to be gentle more than we love to be right." #waylonlewis#ethicalbrand#love#coffeescrub

“Clothing has the ability to speak with subtleties where words would get lost. It is a conduit for self expression because within the layers, you are communicating part of you to the world.” - Matthew Molcillo.

Do you know the difference between brands that are ‘purpose brands’ and others that are purposeful? The difference might seem at small, but be careful!
Purpose brand: the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
Purposeful brand: having or showing determination or resolve.
We’re #thankful that more brands today that are moving towards becoming more purposeful. Through CSR community initiatives, B corp certifications, and integrative organizational wealth-sharing practices, brands are starting to take steps in the right direction. Let’s make #purposefulbrands the new norm 😎♻️!
