Meet our partners:
Is it just me or does your underwear drawer need a major overhaul? I recently discovered Huha, a female-founded line of mineral underwear infused with zinc that promotes healthy bacteria while eliminating odor (bonus: they’re also biodegradable and compostable!). The best part? They’re genuinely comfortable, flattering, size-inclusive… and I actually want to wear them! xo Erin
Life seems to be getting busier than ever, and with summer on the horizon I’m looking for quick, easy ways to fuel my body with nutrient dense foods. Enter Eaton Hemp’s hemp hearts and toasted seeds that I can put on EVERYTHING! This protein-fueled, antioxidant rich goodness is the perfect topper for smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal, salads… even pasta! Bonus – I can put it on my kids snacks and meals to make sure they’re getting all the vitamins and minerals they need throughout the day. xo Erin
