Everything is sacred. Every breath. Every glance. Every sound. It's easy to miss this. Breathing deeply helps. It takes practice. A lifetime of practice. I went to Brooklyn on my birthday last week to have a coffee and explore and get inspired. I visited some of my favorite stores and want to share with you my idea of elevating our shopping experience to the sacred.
Take some time to think about who you are and what you believe in. No judgements. I have personally been on all parts of this spectrum and I believe in honoring our desires as clues to the treasure map that leads us back into our hearts.
Research brands and stores and see if they align with what you stand for. It takes a little time, but not much. If you are like me, let yourself be led by beautiful images and then follow that trail to the information on websites.
There is a magic that occurs when you take the time and disconnect yourself from the messages towards consumerism that we are bombarded with everyday. Find your own truth. Make fewer purchase, purchases that have meaning and that express what your life is about.
This can be done on any budget and will look different for each person. I can help you with that if you like 😉🌟.
Here are three stores I love to visit because they represent things I believe in and stand for and they inspire me on many levels.....
"Bhoomki creates and curates fine products made in an ethical fashion for the good of the planet". https://www.bhoomki.com
This lady is the best bra fitter I have ever met and I love supporting an African American female small business owner.
This shop is the most beautifully curated consignment store I have ever found. I almost don't like to tell people about it but really it is the perfect example of how we can buy luxurious, unique, really well made clothes without having to harm our natural resources. We don't need to keep buying new cheaper pieces when consignment is presented like this.
