Brand Feature | Femme Faire

Hey guys! Late last year I stumbled across a brand on Instagram and I really want to share them (now that I have finally ordered some of their products). Femme Faire is a female owned company out of Ontario. They make stylish and modern earrings, bags, jewelry + headbands. Not only do they strive to be sustainable and ethical, they also put a huge emphasis on female empowerment in the work place. It is a solely female run business and they employ many immigrants/refugees, which I love. The more I learn about this brand, like the fact that they donate to women’s shelters, the more I fall in love with them. It’s not even just about the amazing product, it’s the amazing things they do for women.

Today I am sharing the Black Velvet Knotted headband, London Leopard knotted headband (made with fabric from London!), the Vegan Leather Knotted headband and the Black Velvet Braided Headband. I also ordered the studded Black Velvet Knotted headband from their recently released spring collection but I am posting this before I receive it so if you want to see that one, follow me on Instagram!

The Black Velvet Knotted headband is chunkier (bigger frame, bigger knot) than the Vegan Leather and London Leopard, but I actually really love it! I feel like the two velvet ones have a dressier vibe (although any of them could be dressed up or dressed down), particularly the braided one.

Seen below is the London Leopard, Vegan Leather Knotted and Black Velvet knotted.

What I love most about these headbands is that they are the hard framed style instead of a fabric wrap around. I find this style a lot easier to put on, especially with my bangs. If you are in the market for some cute headbands, definitely check out Femme Faire.

Brand Feature | Anupaya

Hey friends! I wanted to share a company with you that I think is really, really special and I am really excited to be an ambassador for. Anupaya is a small company in the Ottawa Valley. They offer apparel, blankets, mugs, hats and more. Anupaya strives to be sustainable; they use recycled materials whenever possible  and they have a One Pound Promise. The One Pound Promise means that for every item sold, they clean up one pound of waste.

Their fedora hats are made with 100% wool and feature a band of recycled leather. I did order one of these hats before I realized it was real leather so I made the decision not to keep it (As a vegetarian, I don’t wear leather). They are beautifully crafted hats so if you are in search of a fedora and you don’t have issues with leather I do highly recommend that you take a look at the options that Anupaya has to offer! I placed an order for the charcoal Supertramp but they sent me the Fawn so I was able to get a photo before I sent it back.

Their blankets are made with 65% recycled wool, and 35% polyester. The fabric is ethically sourced from Italy and cut and sewn in Canada. They come in different colours and patterns to match your decor and they are reversible. They are also quite large at 5ft by 6ft. When I opened my blanket I was so impressed with how thick and cozy it was. They are also machine washable which makes it so easy.

Heads up; If you decide to order any of their apparel, they warn to size up. I ordered the large (I would typically wear a medium) and it was still SO TINY.

I am so excited to be an ambassador for this brand that is all about spreading positive energy and environmental awareness. You can save 15% off your order from Anupaya with the code KelseyProblemz
