A few months back I told you guys that I will be doing a monthly post to share products and services that I’m obsessed with. My new plan is to continue doing that, but to focus on conscious brands that I love. I want Please, Do Tell to be a place of inspiration and resource for those who are looking to make a difference but are too busy to know how. We all can’t pack our bags and move to a developing country to volunteer (as amazing as that would be) but we can certainly have an impact by supporting value-driven businesses that are trying to make the world a better place. I love a good story behind a brand and when I find a product that is great and meaningful it fills me with joy and immediately want to share it with you all. Enjoy! 🙂

THOUGHTFULLY MAGAZINE: 

  • Totally obsessed with this magazine! I promised you will feel inspired 5 minutes into it. Everything they publish is good for our soul and bodies-hurry and grab yours at your nearest Whole Foods ( other shops are listed on their site).

ILIA BEAUTY: 

  • You remember this shoot, right?! I hardly wear lipsticks and can tell you that I’m completely in love with this brand. From the lipstick case to the natural quality of each lipstick-I say this is a winner, for sure!

FAIR SEAS SUPPLY & CO 

  • I am sure you’ve seen my instagram photos and blog post with this adorable beach blanket. The founder of Fair Seas Supply had one mission and that was to make a sustainable product made in California with good working conditions. I think it would be a great gift for someone who loves the beach! I sure can’t wait to take mine to Turks and Caicos next week. 🙂

ONE HOPE WINE: 

  • I know I’ve recommended this a million times but it’s because wine is always on my mind! Thought it might be on yours too..lol! Summer is almost over…and what would be more awesome than to order a few bottles for your last BBQ soiree. Let me remind you that each bottle represents a different cause (education, poverty, health..etc)-so amazing, right!?

HOT BREAD KITCHEN: 

  • Hot Bread Kitchen is a small business based out of NYC that I learned about when I worked at Goldman Sachs. Not sure if you’ve come across their bread but they sell them at Whole Foods and other locations in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. This incredible business not only bakes great bread but also has a baking training program for women with low-income backgrounds who want a career in food manufacturing. Promise me that after you’ve read this post you will visit their site…it’s so inspiring and will for sure warm your heart! 🙂
