Cambio & Co.

Heydilly ho, followinos! How was your Mother’s Day? As I was considering what to get my mom this year, I thought about continuing my theme from Christmas– giving less material goods but donating to organizations on behalf of my giftees. I did still want to give something and since I’ve seen companies employing artisans in poverty-stricken areas, I wondered if there were any owned by Filipinos … Continue reading Cambio & Co.

Vamp Up Your Valentine’s Day

What’s up, readers, are you planning a big date? I must I admit that I do not usually employ the word “vamp” in my usual vernacular. I was just going for that sweet alliteration… Also, unless a local nerd group puts together a study group or something, I’m just scheduling on a usual Wednesday this 14th.

Certain images and traits like charity have been seared into my personality, but donations can be problematic (e.g., corrupt organizations). That’s why I’m interested in brands that either feature local artisans and/or further teach those … Continue reading Rags2Riches

eBay Haul

I feel like we’ve all heard eBay horror stories, right? People taking money, items don’t look like their pictures… As much as I like its more precise filters, I just feel like I don’t usually find anything on eBay. However, I saw someone share this Sailor Moon purse, and I simply had to have it. Amy Dunne might not be the best role model, but given the universal … Continue reading eBay Haul
