Nota bene: Friday Favorites post often contain a few affiliate links. I will receive a small percentage of the sales made through the use of those links below. If you’d like to have your product featured here, and feel like you’d be a good fit for girldust, please feel free to contact me! I’d love to work with you! 

Hello again! I’d offer some sort of explanation about the cyclically occurring existential crisis of Ye Olde lifestyle blogger, but I’ve come to realize I don’t owe anybody anything. Neither do you. This is true if you have a hundred-thousand followers or if you have ten. Be content in your work or lack thereof, never apologetic.

I will explain part of my absence, though: I was …mostly just busy with school. At the end of the semester, I made an awkward twenty minute Power Point presentation and wrote a 20+ paper about the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) as it functions in Hawaii. This successfully wrangled me an A, even though I did maybe two-thirds of it kind of last minute. That’s how I rolled in undergrad, and I guess those habits don’t just disappear because you’re responsible and you’ve reached your thirties.

If you’re at all interested in reading about my academic/future professional life, do leave a comment here or even on Instagram! I wouldn’t mind talking about public history and conservation, or museum stuff.

Onward! To the Favorites!

  1. Finding eco friendly underthings is slowly but surely becoming easier. I just discovered Maine (!) brand Brook There, which offers a decent selection of organic cotton bras and underwear. Pictured above is the Alchemy bra in black organic cotton with blue silk trim. I am working on an updated Ethical Underthings post, as the original is four years old and definitely a bit out of date! Things are only getting better.
  2. I’d like for my Friday Favorites posts to be more than just a glorified weekly wish list, so I’ll continue to make an effort to include things that I already own, use and love. The Constance top (in the shade moonrock) from PrAna has become an integral part of my summer wardrobe; I reach for it at least once a week. Every piece I own from PrAna is well loved and frequently worn.
  3. Fairy Girl is a 100% cruelty free and vegan cosmetics company. Their liquid-to-matte formula in Sacred (taupey brown) is so gorgeous, and I reach for it even when I’m just hanging around the house (which is kind of a lot). This product dries down, but is still incredibly comfortable to wear! I’d really like to try some of the other liquid shades; both Pink Earth and Autumn Rose are right up my alley. You can use this link to save $10 on a $30 Fairy Girl purchase!
  4. I love this narwhal tote from Sea Bags! I know I’ve shared this company before, but they’re just so good. I’m sad to say that I missed out on a limited edition marine life print that helped to support the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. Whale print is the next best thing? All Sea Bags are handmade from recycled sail cloth in Portland, Maine. ♥
  5. Sivana is one of my favorite places to internet window shop. I love this dainty amazonite bracelet, which is meant to help with self discovery. These are great little bracelets for stacking. Sivana supports Fair Trade practices! First time ordering? Use the code GIRLDUST20 to save 20% at checkout!
  6. For every purchase made through their website yesterday, Seaweed Bath Company donated $1 to World Oceans Day. Add that to the list of reasons why this is one of my favorite skincare brands. Tj and I both really enjoy the Citrus Vanilla body wash. All products are cruelty free and vegan, and bottles are 100% post consumer recycled plastic. Seaweed Bath Co. is also available to purchase in-store and online at Target.

Thanks, as always, for reading. Have a great weekend!
