Since the weather is getting colder (which I love!) I've added some knitted hats to my Etsy shop! Feel free to check them out here. All of these were made last year, but I am working on making new styles and colors very soon (once my wrist heals from a minor injury!) 🍂
I also wanted to share my latest guest article written for Sustainably Chic! This article was super fun to write, and I got to do lots of research on many rental clothing brands to find the best options.
Earlier this month, I've been promoted to Made Institute's Social Media Manager! I am very new at the role, but am learning each day and loving it! It has been really fun to connect with Made's community virtually. The role fits perfectly with my other role as Community Coordinator there, allowing me to get a farther reach to the people involved with Made and beyond. I'm grateful for the position, and am excited to grow into it 🌱
Introducing a fun little tidbit, my Virtual Bookshelf! Sharing what I'm currently reading to give recommendations and inspiration for your next read, and to spark conversation on various topics!
Recently finished reading: A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J Maas
About the book: When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.
My thoughts: This book is fantastic! Recommended to me by multiple friends of mine, I finally picked it up and decided to start a book club about it with my friends! I read it super fast, and am in love with the series. A must-read for lovers of fantasy, action, and romance!
Currently reading: A Court of Mist and Fury, by Sarah J Maas (Book 2 in the series)
About the book: As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms-and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future-and the future of a world torn apart.
My thoughts: I'm halfway through the book, and cannot put it down. It has me on the edge of my seat! The chapters end on cliffhangers, forcing me to keep reading because I need to know what happens next. Still some romance and lots of exciting action!
Currently reading: Mend, by Kate Sekules
About the book: A hands-on manual and a history and celebration of clothes tending--and its remarkable resurgence as art form, political statement, and path to healing the planet.
My thoughts: I'm reading this as a part of Remake's book club, and looking forward to discussing it with other Remake Community Organizers and ambassadors at the end of the month! I love books that are visual and educational with an artistic subject. I'm hoping to read books like these every month, they are so informative and inspirational!
As always, thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet! 😊
