Choosing Factories With Care

Choosing Factories with Care

Do you look at labels on clothes when you are shopping to see where they are made? I do. That’s because I spent many years deciding which factories Victoria’s Secret would use to make their millions of bras, panties, and sleepwear. All good brands use a set of criteria to choose suppliers which is veryRead more »

Reflections & Resolutions

Christmas is over and I am so glad. I love Christmas, really, I do. I love the lights, the carols, the cookie baking, putting up my village– heck, I even enjoy the mad dash to find the perfect gift for everyone on my list. But it’s exhausting! There are just not enough hours in theRead more »

She jumped in the shower while I heated up some leftovers for herRead more »

Frozen Revisited

Regular readers of this blog will know that I’ve written about the movie Frozen twice. In my first post about this phenomenally successful Disney movie, I talked about its powerful message of two sisters who love and protect each other.
