The Best Seat Outside With SunBriteTV Veranda Series with HDR

Last year, I was introduced to the SunBriteTV Veranda series, the television made for outdoors and as I look back on the post, it reminds of how much has changed in a year! First foremost, the biggest change for my son and myself is that we have since moved into our own home! I am officially a homeowner!

Change is good. I believe that people should be open to change. I know it can be difficult for my son, but he eventually adapts. Do you embrace change? Making changes is tough, but when you look back how and why it happened, it’s usually for good.

Discover Eco-Friendly Clothing That’s Super Comfy

Super Comfy Eco-Friendly Clothing
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I work from home, which means I prefer to spend most of my time wearing comfy clothes. Of course, they also have to be stylish. Instead of turning to fast fashion, I look for brands that are creating eco-friendly clothing. They’re more conscious of the environment and of working conditions of those who make the clothes.

Anything I can do to leave a smaller carbon footprint or improve the lives of others; I try to do. With brands like Majamas Earth, finding eco-friendly clothing for the whole family is much easier. All of Majamas Earth’s products are sourced and made in the US. They strive to use Organic Cottons and environmentally friendly fabrics.

By making this commitment, the brand ensures people making the clothes are paid a fair wage and treated well.  It also ensures their clothes aren’t sprayed with chemicals or that clothing waste is dumped into our waters.

Eco-Friendly Clothing – The Basics
Majamas Earth_Eco-Friendly Clothing Collection

Now that you know a bit about Majamas Earth, let’s meet their eco-friendly clothing. The brand was kind enough to send me three pieces for review, including The Nuovo Top, The Tempo Libre Pant, and The Organic Sporty Bra. All three are extremely comfortable and very well made.

The Organic Sport Bra

First, we have The Organic Sporty Bra. Made from eco-friendly fabrics, the bra features a v-neck crossover front and racer-back. It also comes with removable pads for added shape and support.

As someone who wears a 36DDD, finding a sports bra is the bane of my existence. In addition to a large chest, I also have a narrow back and shoulders.  I wasn’t sure how The Organic Sporty Bra would work for me, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. While The Organic Sporty Bra isn’t ideal for high-impact workouts, it’s perfect for low impact, like Barre or Pilates. It’s also extremely comfortable for sleeping or every day wear.

The under-bust band is soft, yet supportive, and the removable pads add just the right amount of support, without being too cumbersome. Usually, I have issues with padded bras because they take up too much of the cup space. This doesn’t happen with The Organic Sporty Bra.

My only complaint with the bra is I wish it came with adjustable straps. Even with the racerback fit, the straps are just a little bit loose on my narrow shoulders. Though it’s doesn’t impede me wearing the bra during the day or during my low impact workouts.

The Nuovo Top & The Tempo Libre Pant

Next up, we have The Nuovo Top and The Tempo Libre Pant. Both are so comfortable I never want to take them off.  They are so soft and cozy, I could even sleep in them.

Available in four colors, The Nuovo Top is made from sustainable cotton, modal, spandex, and recycled fabrics. It features a high-low cut, with a printed lining on the neckline and hemline. It’s extremely diverse, and can be worn with pjs, to the gym or with your favorite jeans. Not only does it wear well, it was washes well.

Finally, we have The Tempo Libre Pant. This jogger style pant is made from reclaimed fabrics, modal, cotton, and spandex. Not only are they eco-friendly, but also super comfy. But what I like most about them, is that fact that they fit my short legs, thanks to the cinched in ankle.

I’m still on the fence about the fabric peek-a-boo pockets. I love the idea, but since I’m a little wider around the hip area, I feel like the fabric accents this part of my body. This is more of a personal concern, not an issue with the clothing.

Majamas Earth Bag

Regardless, like all the other Majamas Earth pieces, these joggers are perfect for sleeping, working out, or even traveling.  But most of all, I can feel good knowing I’m wearing eco-friendly clothing from an eco-conscious brand. I also love that they came with a super cute reusable bag. I can’t wait to add more Majamas Earth clothes to my wardrobe. I’m eyeing some of their tanks, hoodies, and leggings.

What’s your favorite piece from the collection? Where do you shop for eco-friendly clothing?

Fears of a Type 1 Diabetic

Type 1 Diabetes is scary and stressful. Let’s just say it’s life-changing, not only for the person diagnosed but for everyone around them as well. Hearing the diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes invokes a list of fears. Fears for not only you but for those around you. I was 7 when I was diagnosed and still remember it like it was yesterday. Falling asleep in class, frequent trips to the bathroom and constantly thirsty. One trip to the doctor and there I was in the hospital with my family being told the news. The news that I had extremely high blood sugar and I was a Type 1 Diabetic.
