Hi guys and welcome to my blog!  My name is Elaine and I am currently a stay-at-home-mom (after being a temporary housewife and then a business owner). 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 (struggling?) purse addict and beauty product junkie.   I moved into a trailer and went from a temporary housewife to a temporary-house wife.  But now we currently live in a condo. So what do I do now?  Iā€™m a sleep-deprived zombie mom to a newborn.  And 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 clicks as well as in your time!
