What Does It Mean to Shop With Purpose? 

December 01, 2020 2 min read

In this day and age, there are so many great products out there in the world.

Now more than ever, it’s possible to order a beautiful hand-poured small batch candle from a small business in the Midwest, as well as a set of handmade braided jute placemats imported from Bangladesh.

I find it's easier to spend my money when I know I’m supporting small businesses and especially charities that do important work all over the world.

Essentially, put your money where your heart is. After all, every product has a story behind it. 

What matters most is looking behind the glitz and glamour of the product to see where and how it's made. When you spend your hard-earned money, you’re making a choice with your dollar. You are deciding who and what deserves your investment. What type of product is it? Who made it? Do they make a fair wage making the product? Realizing the intentionality of what we purchase is our responsibility as consumers. The health of our planet and our people depend on it. 

That’s why I createdLifestyle Details, a place where we can buy beautiful, hand-picked items made by artisans who make a fair wage. See below for a few of my absolute favorites:

Ula Jute Stripe Basket Blue (Set of 2)
ULA Jute Woven Basket

I love plants/flowers. And I am obsessed with color. This color combo makes me want to design a whole room with this set as the focus.

Yalova Super Soft Marbled Towel - Yellow
Yalova Super Soft Marbled Towel - Yellow

I don’t know if I love anything more than this gorgeous throw. Talk about the most beautiful pop of color. Plus I am ALWAYS cold. Anyone else constantly covered in a blanket? Well that’s me and I love that this is made from upcycled cotton. The best, most conscious cozy item that would also (added benefit) make an excellent and thoughtful gift.

"Big Apple" Scented Coconut Wax Candle

If there’s two things you need to know about me - it’s that I LOVE all things interior design and the second, candles are life. Candles bring comfort, delightful smells, and an overall sense of feeling at home. This particular candle is a coconut wax blend, which is less common than soy. Not only does it burn slowly, meaning you can enjoy your candle for that much longer, it coconut wax also possesses the distinct ability to put off scent just perfectly, meaning you will be smelling this blend from first light to last. 

Geo Stripe Turkish Towel

This towel is 30% Turkish Cotton, 70% Bamboo and 100% Eco-Friendly. Not to mention, it is my favorite color, blue!
