Compassionate Fashion: 10 Eco-Friendly Summer Shoes From Timberland

I’ve found that it’s surprisingly easy to find clothing and accessories that are up to ethical and sustainable standards, but when it comes to shoes, the pickings are few and far between. There’s certainly stylish, handcrafted, responsibly sourced footwear out there — if you’re willing to spend a minimum of $300 on a pair of shoes — but if your budget is closer to $100 or less, your options dwindle to recycled yoga mat flip flops or … well, that’s pretty much it. Timberland is working to change that with their Earthkeepers line. Made using recycled materials and sourced from factories and tanneries that have shown a commitment to the environment, Earthkeepers are stylish, high quality shoes that you can feel good about buying and wear for years to come. I’m particularly enamored by their summer collection of sandals and espadrilles. Click through to check out 10 of my faves!

Frisky Eats: The Healthy, Tasty, Wholly Underrated Turnip

Turnips are by no means a glamorous food. They’re a hard root vegetable with a rough, bitter peel that you may only recognize from going to the farmer’s market, picking one up, and saying, “Damn, that is one ugly radish.” But listen up, people: turnips are SO GOOD when prepared correctly, they’re packed full of vitamins and minerals, and they’re a great potato alternative for anyone who’s watching their carb intake. Inspired by my Turnip Sandwich of Dreamz, here are 9 other delicious turnip recipes to convince you to give this humble tuber a try…

Kickass Woman Of The Day: Mandy Hansen, The First Female Crew Member On “Deadliest Catch”

Kickass Woman Of The Day: Mandy Hansen, The First Female Crew Member On "Deadliest Catch"

“Deadliest Catch” is one of my favorite reality shows. I love watching marathons of it when I’m sad or depressed, because nothing makes me feel better about my current life situation than being reminded that it could be worse, and specifically, that I could be in the middle of a 24-hour shift on a tiny crab boat in the middle of a hurricane on the Bering Sea, with snot and fish guts frozen to my face. That being said, the show is a total sausage fest — crab fishing is an industry dominated by men, and the show’s cast reflects that. Besides one husband and wife captain team, you rarely, if ever, see a woman on the show.

But 18-year-old Mandy Hansen is about to change that. Keep reading »

I Want To Go To There: Bali’s Glass-Bottomed “Shrimp House” Hotel

I would stay at a hotel called “Shrimp House” even if it was a dump, just because I think the name is funny (and the chance to steal a robe emblazoned with the words “Property Of Shrimp House” is too good to pass up), but in this case the funny name accompanies a truly stunning destination property. Shrimp House is perched above a shrimp pond in Bali, with a glass-bottomed bedroom that allows guests to view an “underwater panorama of crustaceans in action,” which sounds like a surefire aphrodisiac if there ever was one. If all that hot shrimp action isn’t enough of a draw, the hotel is also equipped with a luxurious outdoor shower and a porch with a gorgeous view of the surrounding jungle. [Huffington Post]

 

Etsy Spotlight: Carved Rose Leather Belts Inspired By Miranda Lambert

I came across this photo of Miranda Lambert in an ad for her new album, Platinum, and I had one of those moments where I was like, “GIVE ME YOUR OUTFIT NOW.” Her carved rose corset belt is especially stunning, isn’t it? A perfect blend of sexy and country and vintage pin-up. After drooling over this photo for a good 5 minutes, I was inspired to round up some similar rose belts on Etsy. Some are vintage, some are new, some are subtle, and some are seriously rockstar worthy, but you could throw any of them on with a plaid summer dress and boots and channel Miranda’s vibes.
