Cruelty-free, Eco-friendly Products you’ll Fall in Love with this October

I've said this before, and I'll continue saying it until the day I die: I use my dollar as my most powerful vote. I spend my money to support vegan/cruelty-free companies that give back to causes I care about, use sustainable materials, and/or support local artists and business owners. Bottom line: there's a lot of power [...]

9 Must-See Documentaries that will Change You & Your Worldview (Yes, Most of them are on Netflix)

I'm obsessed with documentaries, especially ever since opening a Netflix account.
