What is Sustainable Fashion

First, I want to point out that this definition describes more sustainable fashion because, as a whole, the fashion industry relies on fast consumption. Which makes the entire industry not exactly sustainably friendly.

Welcome to Culley Avenue

After a lot of thought and consideration and many discussions with the people I surround myself with, I’ve made a decision… I want to do what I originally set out to do with this blog. I want to create a space for people who know that there is more to this life that they haven’t acheived yet. Because that is how I feel right now. It’s how I’ve felt for a long time. And there’s no more time to waste. Each day that goes by is one less day that we have.

Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth

I have tried teeth whitening throughout the years, like most of us have. I did the strips and whitening toothpastes. Honestly, I never really had great results. I need instant gratification if I’m going to stick to something, like teeth whitening. Another option that I’ve considered is professional teeth whitening but I just wasn’t in the place financially to pay so much for something cosmetic. So when Smile Brilliant reached out to me to try their at home teeth whitening kit, I took it as a sign and immediately jumped on board!

Valentine’s Day Getaways

So instead of letting February be just another month on our way to warmer weather and fun events, let’s make it a month to celebrate. Last year I decided that I wanted to make more of a deal about holidays. Afterall, why do we have them if we aren’t going to enjoy them?

Happy New Year!

That’s what I’m doing in 2019, tapping into a version of myself that I haven’t met yet. Over the last year I have dug deep down into myself to figure out who I am and what makes me happy.

Thank You, 2018

After reflecting back on 2018, I can see how I didn’t reach any of my goals. I wasn’t ready. I was still in the “excuse making” phase of my journey. I told myself that I deserved a break. I told myself that tomorrow I would do better. I told myself a lot of things to make up for the fact that I wasn’t doing what I knew I needed to do in order to succeed.

A Brief History of Tweed to Help You Choose the Best Tweed Jacket

So how did tweed become mainstream?: The royals, obviously! There’s not enough time to get started on my love for all things royal family, but I was not surprised when I read that Prince Albert turned tweed fashionable in 1848. When Prince Albert purchased Balmoral in Scotland he designed the very first Estate Tweed, which is similar to Scottish Clan Tartans.

Is Revolve the Next Victoria's Secret?

Oh, Revolve. The retail powerhouse that I will never understand. Through what I can only imagine was years of continuous hard work and well implemented influencer strategies, Revolve has made it’s mark on the millenial generation and the online shopping world. The company has established itself as a contender, one that is not going away, one that has proven to be successful. However, they just can’t seem to understand that the world is not inhabited by women that are all a size 2. Revolve, when are you going to board the size inclusive train? It’s time.
