Hi guys and welcome to my blog!  My name is Elaine and I am currently not a housewife, but when I created this blog I had just quit my desk job and didn't know what to call myself.  Over time this blog has morphed into a space to not only talk about what's going on with me personally, but also a site where I review some of my favorite ethical brands.  And currently I'm obsessed with Everlane and Elizabeth Suzann.  I'm a recovering handbag addict and beauty product junkie.   I moved into a trailer and went from a temporary housewife to a temporary-house wife.  But we have temporarily moved back into a house (with a plan to move into a smaller condo soon). So what do I do now?  My husband and I have started a new adventure renting out trailers in California (lol true trailer trash).  In the meantime I will try to keep up on those unsponsored reviews and talk more about my efforts at mindful consumption (on my journey to zero-waste).  


All items reviewed and featured on my blog are on items I've purchased for myself (unless it's not, and then I'd let you know).  I have Google Adsense, which uses cookies, running in my sidebar.  I also have referral links which I use in my posts (where I can earn store credit).  Lastly, I am a part of Amazon Associates, Pepperjam, Awin and Shopstyle Collective, which are affiliate programs (where I usually earn cents per click or a small percentage of commission per purchase).  As always, and as it should be, all opinions are my own and I try to be as transparent as possible in my posts.  Thank you to all my readers for your continued support, in cents as well as in your time!
