I think one thing we can all agree on is that the pandy-wammy has created a surge in online shopping. I know that I can’t be the only one that seems to be adding things to my cart almost every day, whether that be at Amazon (I know, trying to get away from them!) or another big box store like Target. Over the past year, I tried to venture out and support more small businesses. Here are my top five most shopped at stores online that I think you should check out ASAP.
One of my friends that I met here in Arizona actually showed me this small shop. I’ve posted about them before on my Instagram, but never have I truly explained why I love this place. Word Strings Co. is a store based out of Ohio and everything is centered around being a kind human. She offers items with unique sayings that are hand-printed on different clothing items like t-shirts, zip-ups, and more. I currently own their new coffee glasses, the ‘You are Important’ sweatshirt, and a shirt that says ‘be curious, not judgmental.‘ Check her out on Instagram here or click here to purchase something from her cute little store.
I have been a brand ambassador (#notsponsored) by this company for a couple of years now, and I absolutely love every single thing they stand for. Keep Nature Wild is a brand that really practices what they preach. As a Wild Keeper (that’s what they call their brand ambassadors) I team up with others and help pick up litter in our beautiful desert. In fact, as a whole, we have collected over 500,000 pounds of trash that were saved from our beautiful Earth! The awesome thing about KNW is that they accept brand ambassadors across the country, so if you’re interested click here to apply. All of their items are ethically made and of great quality. I personally love their hats. In fact, I’m currently wearing their ‘Desert Daze’ yellow dad hat as I write this post. All in all, snag something cute at KNW but your purchase will also have a purpose.
If you’ve been following me at all on Instagram over the past year and a half, you might have seen that I post a lot of self-love and body positivity graphics. One of my favorite artists is Stephanie Chinn. You can find her @stephaniechinnart on Instagram. If you’re looking for some daily encouragement or just some kind words, check out her shop by clicking here. She even ships internationally! I personally have over six prints of her artwork on my walls and a couple of her stickers on my water bottle. Her art just speaks to me, and I hope it can bring you the same type of feeling.
I know, I know. This one has a hilarious name, and I absolutely love it. Who Gives a Crap is a company that makes sustainable toilet paper as well as other paper products. Yes, sustainable toilet paper! I honestly had no idea how bad toilet paper is bad for our Earth, I know that it’s made from trees, but I didn’t know the extent of an impact it has on our environment. Who Gives a Crap is also a company that gives back. They are a certified B-Corp because of their high standards for social and environmental impact and they help build toilets for people that need them. So far they have donated over $10,800,000 to help build bathrooms in third-world countries as well as helping give them access to clean water. And yes, before anyone asks, their toilet paper is honestly the best I have ever used, Nolan too! Nolan is so picky, and he swore he would never change, but that all switched when he tried Who Gives a Crap! Check them out by clicking here.
This is a brand that actually reached out to me at the beginning of the summer and asked to work with me. I was a little nervous at first because the clothes were a little out of my comfort zone, but I am so glad they sent me a message. I am now obsessed with everything Albion Fit. From their swimsuits to their joggers, I fell in love. I love to wear this one-piece swimsuit as a bodysuit because it’s that cute. One thing that makes Albion stand out from other clothing companies is their mission statement: ALBION’S MISSION IS TO PROVIDE WOMEN WITH THE MOST LUXURIOUS, FLATTERING, AND HASSLE-FREE SWIM, FITNESS AND LEISURE APPAREL ON THE MARKET. I can 100% confirm that their items are not only high-quality, but they are so, so comfy. I wear the joggers at least once a week and I love cycling in their focus tank. Check out Albion by clicking here. They have stuff for the whole family, including mommy & me outfits!
I hope you guys check out some of my favorite online shops above and fall in love with them as I did. If you do check them out, let me know what you think! Have another business you genuinely love? Leave me a comment below so I can check them out too.
Until next time,
