This is a running page! Part of my journey through this blog is learning and exploring. I am at the beginning of my journey and as I find people or articles that I know are beneficial to you in regards to sustainable, cruelty-free living and blogging, I’ll put them here!
So stay tuned 😉
SUSTAINABLE AND CRUELTY-FREE LIVING
GREEN AMERICA // this site is amazing for all things Green – including your home!
GREEN SEAL // an independent company who strives for a greener economy. Their Mission: “Green Seal is a nonprofit organization that uses science-based programs to empower consumers, purchasers, and companies to create a more sustainable world.” Their website is full of resources for all aspects of living green including household products, construction materials, personal care products and hotels!
LOGICAL HARMONY // this site is all things beauty by Tashina Combs. I refer to her site daily for makeup tutorials, product reviews and the constantly updated list of cruelty-free and vegan products.
FOR THE HOME

If you’ve ever thought about starting a blog, you’ll know that the idea is both invigorating and terrifying. It seems almost impossible to be writing about what you love, reaching and helping others every day and working from wherever you want?! Hello dream life! While blogging is a lot of work, the personal reward is worth it twofold! Here are some resources to help you out and make it a little easier to take the plunge.
BUILDING A FRAMEWORK: THE ULTIMATE BLOGGING HANDBOOK // a course by Abby Lawson of Just a Girl and Her Blog. This book changed my life. It gives you all the tools you need to start a blog, including some techy videos 🙌🏻 I happened to come across it during a time when I was lost and needed a project. I had no idea how to blog, and definitely didn’t understand that you could make a living on it, but Abby opened my eyes. If you have even the slightest nagging to start a blog, even as a hobby, you need this course! Even after 2 years of blogging, I still go back and reference this course regularly.
BLUEHOST // This is a quick and inexpensive way to start a blog — and your second step! What I love is that you can register your domain name, get a unique email address and get excellent customer support all in one place!
REFINED 316 // What’s amazing about blogging and website design is that you don’t have to be a computer wiz to build a beautiful site. There is very little coding involved when you have a theme which is kind of like a template for how you want your blog to look and function. I have used restored 316 since I started in 2015 and purchased two themes from them. They offer step by step guides to implementing the items on your site and have amazing customer support if you have questions along the way!
TAILWIND // the easiest way to schedule your Pinterest and Instagram activity. Social Media is so important for connecting with your audience and growing your blog so consistency is key. Tailwind even posts at the best times for engagement and recommends hashtags to use to better extend your pin/post.
