    The Coziest Ethical and Sustainable Sweaters for Winter

    Pink Chenille Sweater and Denim Jeans Cup of Charisma Blog 3

    Happy Tuesday, friends! Houston has had some temperamental weather. This weekend was as high as 80 and tonight we’re back in the 50s! Needless to say, I would love for Mother Nature to just make up her mind and let the winter settle in. I’m traveling to South Florida this weekend to be with family for the next three weeks. While I won’t need merino wool or chenille, I can’t help but cozy up in the meantime and enjoy the cold front. I’m trying my absolute best to make Cup of Charisma a resource for sustainable brands and brands that give back to a cause (like my sustainable boot guide from fall), so today I’m rounding up several brands that fit that criteria. I hope you enjoy these cozy sustainable sweaters for winter.

    7 Self-Care Tips to Start Today

    How do you practice self-care? Better yet, how do you turn self-care into self-love? Commercialism has inflated self-care into lavish spa experiences or pricey bath bombs. While I love to soak in a bathtub surrounded by candles and my favorite Lush bath bombs, I’ve come to understand that self-care is so much more than the tiny moments we treat ourselves. Self-care is a basic function of our daily lives that we need to practice to succeed. Self-care is even a road to self-love, allowing us to build our confidence and find self-acceptance. Today, I’m sharing seven simple self-care tips you can start today.

    50 Best Black Friday 2018 Sales

    50 Best Black Friday Sales

    Happy Friday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving spent with your loved ones. Brian and I carried on the tradition of doing dinner together in Houston. Brian made an all-vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner for me, which was AMAZING. Next year, I’ll definitely do a how-to post because he did WELL. We also spent much of the day cuddling with our corgi Minnie and eating homemade pumpkin pie. Today marks Black Friday, so I thought I’d do a small roundup of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales to shop!
