Fashion Revolution Day

Here’s to ending (on the following 📷) my first “from the blog” series here on Instagram, YAY!🤗🌼 . . 🖤Sharing something in honor of #fashionrevolution day which falls on the anniversary of the unfortunate event in Rana Plaza last April 24th 2013. . 👉Yes, we all want to know #whomademyclothes from brands like #zara or #anthropologie but I find it is as important to ask ethical brands making a positive step forward in labor and manufacturing issues... @amourvert @everlane @reformation @christydawn and etc... . 👉I would like to see more transparency from them. Just being honest that I’m still a tiny bit skeptical which is most likely an effect from my years of mindless consumerism—then years later learning how negatively (sometimes disturbing) fast fashion brands have impacted the laborers’ lives. - - If only we could occasionally get some updates, perhaps thru blogging or “stories” or simple social media posts about their labor and manufacturing instead of just their green marketing. I support each of these ethical fashion companies so I hope to see more and more transparency from them.🤓 👉Have you heard of the brands I’ve mentioned above? Do check them out! They’re 💚 👉What is your go-to 🇺🇸 brand? I’d love to know!🌼 👉Check out @truecostmovie if you haven’t... A quite disturbing eye-opening docu in relation to the Rana Plaza tragedy. 💔 . . 👉Buy less, choose well 💯🌎😌💞 👉Take a peek at your neighborhood thrift stores 🕰🧐 👉 Try #upcycledfashion ✂️😼 👉Seasonal cleaning is fun and you’ll be surprised about the hidden beauties waiting to be rediscovered from your wardrobe! 👗☺️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #greenfashion #consciousconsumer #ethicalfashion #ethicallymade #slowlife #embracingaslowerlife #slowlifestyle  #slowliving #slowlived #simpleeveryday #theslowdowncollective #flowersmakemehappy #florallove #springblooms #inspiredbypetals #morningslikethese #liveintentionally #intentionalseasons #seekinspirecreate #aseasonalshift #sfblogger

Earth Day

🌤Good Morning, Monday!🙏 ☕️ Happy new work week to all.😊 . . 🌱Just a little something in honor of Earth month... 🌳San Francisco has a pretty decent waste disposal program which gives us an opportunity to participate in its zero-waste initiative and early this year, I have finally decided to fully participate in this 3-bin sorting at home—Compost, Recycle, and Landfill. Such a shame that it took over a decade before I decided to, but you know what they say, better late than never!😅 I printed out the sorting guide for easy reference and this has been really helpful for us. 👉Try it! Pretty easy habit to acquire once you get the hang of it.☺️ Not all waste sorters are the same though so check your local waste management before you do this bc sometimes your trash will just end up in the landfill if they don’t meet the proper sorting requirements... ~ Happy Sorting! 💚 . . . . . . . . . . . #earthday #earthlove #greenliving #slowlife #enjoymoments #slowliving #slowlifestyle #simpleeveryday #theslowdowncollective #aslowmoment #simplepleasures #simplejoys #livethelittlethings #awakethelight #ofsimplethings #savouringhappiness #liveintentionally #simplejoys #seekinspirecreate #aseasonalshift #tinytinymoments #florallove #flowersmakemehappy #springblooms #inspiredbypetals #embracingtheseasons #sanfranciscohouses #sflove #mysf #mysanfrancisco #sfliving

Hope & Encouragement

Hello, Thursday!🌤 How’s your work week been so far? Hope it’s been a pleasant one... 🙂 🥀Mine has been a little bit on the downer side of things and it has left our small team feeling a bit disheartened by a situation we had no control of regarding a client. It’s been an ongoing issue that was finalized just yesterday. It’s true what they say, being someone’s crutch isn’t actually helpful. All we could really do now is just pray and hope for the best. 🌹If you’re going through a difficult situation, I wish that day will soon come when you’ll be ready to look up and believe that the skies will eventually clear for you, and you’ll stand tall—slowly but surely, growing stronger as ever. 🌴 . . . . . . . . . . . #hopeliveshere #faithoverfear #faith #hope #hemakesallthingsnew #hopeful #speaklife #anxietysupport #lettinggo #lettinggod #thursdaylove #thursdaymotivation #morningslikethese #slowlife #slowliving #slowlifestyle #theslowdowncollective #smallmomentsofcalm #aslowmoment #awakethelight #liveintentionally #aseasonalshift #sfblogger #slowblogging #slowlifeblogger #newblogger #mysf

Hope & Encouragement

“No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.” ~ Proverb Hello, Tuesday. Getting a little personal here... 🖤 Yesterday at work was one of the toughest and heaviest I’ve experienced emotionally (and mentally). No matter how hard we try and help others, there comes a time when a harsh decision must be made to resolve whatever is left of a distressing circumstance. My mentors are as human as they could get but we also need to look after our own to prevent more damage in the business. 💙 Sometimes imperative, Empathy—is a word I often have difficulty parting ways with. But as a person of faith, I have to remind myself to see the light even in times of darkness... The colors in the midst of dullness. 💜 So I must let go of yesterday, be thankful for today, and hope for a colorful tomorrow, mainly for the ones directly involved in this obstacle... 💛 And to you as well if you’re faced with an obstacle today; I hope that you will not lose strength, perseverance, and hope for tomorrow... 🌷 #springiscoming . . . . . . . . . . . #hopeliveshere #faithoverfear #hemakesallthingsnew #hopeful #speaklife #anxietysupport #lettinggo #lettinggod #tuesdaylove #tuesdayencouragement #sfblogger #newblogger #mysf #floral_secrets #blossoms

EMME HOPE ~ Launch Day

👩🏻‍💻I've been writing (and posting a couple) for no one for a few months now... I think I was content-ready but my blog wasn’t launch-ready... 🎨Designing took forever. I first planned on launching sometime in August but then life happens in the summer you know! 🤸🏻‍♀️ Camping, picnics, some birthdays, and family visits and gatherings. It was quite a lot for me but I wanted to keep up with fam and friends... 🍹It’s the Summer anyway. 😌I’m the type who prefers to take things slow whenever I can so I definitely wasn’t going to rush something I was putting my heart into. 🎈This month marks the 10th yr. I’ve celebrated my birthday living in San Francisco! Hence, I thought there’s no other perfect time to finally launch my passion project. 🍻So *yay* I finally get to share what I have been working on and I couldn't be more excited. 🔝Please click the link in my profile to see more. Hope you enjoy your visit! 💛😊✌️ . . . . . . . #sanfrancisco #sfblogger #slowlife #urbanliving #citylife #sfliving #sflocal #discoversf #livecolorfully #livethelittlethings #appreciate #inspire #getinspired #norcalblogger #norcallife #ilovesf #newblogger #sfstyle #alwayssf #sfeveryday #visitsf #citybythebay #mysf #morningslikethese #cityguides #discoversanfrancisco
