It’s summer time and I am taking the leap of faith!! I am going full time with my sustainable brand Belle Bélier! I am so excited and beyond thankful for all the support I’ve already received. Don’t worry, I am going to continue to blog and fill your Instagram stories with my everyday shenanigans. So don’t worry about that but it’s time for me to stop doing 5 different things and focus on the one thing that gives my creative side an outlet.
When I started blogging, fast fashion was in my face 24/7! Constant campaigns for over production of clothing and asking me to push consumption. Trust me, I am just as much to blame for buying fast fashion as any girl (especially for kids clothing)! But the fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry in the world! THE WORLD! It’s hard to ignore that as a mommy blogger who is trying to give my followers brands and information about what is best for their children and families. I decided to I start looking for more sustainable brands that I could incorporate into my home and closet as a better example for my followers and children.
Since starting my fair trade/eco friendly/sustainable/local blogging journey I have found a few amazing brands! I will begin to share them over the next couple of weeks for you to review as well! But I decided it was time for me to start my own (there’s a whole back story to this but no need to get into it). Thus the birth of Belle Bélier. Where I hand make, design, deliver, and do a little happy dance every time we receive an order. We take scrap leather from local designers and create all of our pieces, rather than it going to the landfill.
Let me start off by saying that this was not an easy decision, owning your own brand and depending on that brand to bring steady income is scary! But it’s a risk I’m ready to take and dive right into. I am so thankful for your support and am excited to share all of this with you throughout my blog and Instagram.
