A few hours late but still up on a Friday!
Best part of the week: I had a really good week overall! I don’t think I really had a best part, there were just a lot of great moments sprinkled throughout the week.
Worst part of the week: I was painfully bored in one of my classes this week and it made it suuuuuper hard to focus for the entire three hours of the class. I also had a super long commute home one day this week - 1.5 HOURS. Brutal I tell ya.
Something I’m grateful for: Reconnecting with my people. I’ve been spending a lot of time with friends and family and it’s making this transitional time feel a little bit easier.
Something I’m excited for: I’m going to a gig tonight and watching my dad and his band perform. There are going to be so many people there that I love so I’m stoked to spend a rainy night in a cozy place listening to awesome music with a bunch of my favourite people.
126) How often do you buy new clothes? Well I’m trying to be more of a minimalist so I haven't bought clothes in a pretty long time. I’m also really trying hard to be more of a conscious consumer - so when I do buy clothes I’m trying to do it responsibly. For me, this means no fast fashion or disposable clothing or pieces made in overcrowded factories with crap working conditions. It’s meant doing research before making purchases and ultimately giving up “retail therapy.” For the most part I’m doing pretty well. But I will say, wanting new things has not gone away. I’m lusting after all sorts of pieces but because they’re made with quality materials and often in much better working conditions, they’re expensive. So for now I’ll stick to my occasional thrifting.
What about you? How often do you buy clothing? Do you know of any brands ethically/responsibly making clothes? Let me know in the comments!
