I posted this on Instagram and really depicts how I feel about ethical living and, the fashion industry. Let’s be the change that we want to be in the world!

Do you care where your clothing is coming from, who is making it, how they live, and the impact that it is having on the environment.  Most people's answer would be NO. This however, closed minded view is the reason the fashion industry can get away with paying oversea workers .25-$4 a day to work just to make clothing for us. We who are careless in our purchases are hurting the workers and the environment. Well, I no longer stand for this injustice. I will not buy from unethical companies because I do not support how they chose to conduct their business. "We do what they want us to," a quote from a song by Bittersweet is all to accurate. Some of you will continue to buy your cheaply made clothing because you chose to close your minds and, if it doesn't directly affect you, you dismiss the problem. Although, it may not affect you directly it will affect future generations when this planet's water supply is unusable because we threw dye into it from fabric. And, when the landfills are stacked but, are now in our backyards because we consumed too much. "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
Coco Chanel

Real Estate Junkie

Hello, my name is Allie and I am a real estate junkie. Oh my, the amount of time I could spend looking at Real Estate is, infinite. I don’t know what it is about real estate but, I love it. It may be the possibility of living in many places or, the history behind the walls. Now, I don’t enjoy all real estate in fact, I want to own many different kinds of real estate. I think there is something to be said about having a family home where all of your relatives can come to on special occasions or long summers. I want to eventually own an estate to use on occasion and then turn it into a rental space, or other things, “I have a few ideas in mind depending upon where it is.” Right now I am looking at real estate a little closer to home that I may want to own, rent out, air b and b, or have bed and breakfast in the next ten years. The real estate is not cheap and, may not even be available but, I am hoping to have he money to gobble up a few prime spots in many different destinations. I am a big fan of unique properties that have a decent amount of acreage and are not too close to other houses. Having farm land is an advantage especially if I were to have a bed and breakfast so, we would have fresh produce to eat/cook. A house that I would actually like to live in would be very different, maybe a converted barn or something to that extent. I would want to live in a medium sized house with the option of having a few larger houses where my family could gather and enjoy each others company. Right now I am no where near being able to afford a home let alone multiple homes. I am currently at my parents house and, I’m ok with that for now until my businesses start to pick up a larger income. I plan on taking what I earn save, invest in a property, and travel. I think traveling is very important and, it may give me an idea of how I want to live once I am on my own. I have defiantly been bitten by the travel bug and, I want to visit as many places as I possibly can. When I’m traveling I would like to blog and vlog about the places I am staying and my experiences.  I think it would be awesome if I got a chance to stay at properties in other countries and explore the way their houses etc. were built and, the history behind them. I am a true real estate junkie because I watch documentaries of the history of how palaces, and important architectural structures were made. I find it fascinating that we are walking the same steps of others who have come before us. Real Estate has been such an important part of history an, was often gifted by royalty to those who did favors for them. By doing a favor for a queen or king it may have also, earned you a title that you would not have gotten unless you were blood related to a person of a title. All of these structures have held people of great importance and, some of which their importance is unknown. Do you ever get the overwhelming feeling of how much history has taken place on the floor you now step on. That is one of the reasons I am so addicted to real estate and, the promise of the memories I can add to the home. I think the next place I will be looking in is NYC- I think I’m going to take a peek at Brooklyn and, where I could imagine myself. If you are looking for a place in Brooklyn let me know in the comments and, in my next post I will have some real estate options/links. Woohoo Brooklyn here we come! Should this be N.Y.C. month? Let me know in the comments if I should write about all the areas in N.Y.C. and, what I see about the next up and coming neighborhood. I do have to say that it seems almost all areas of N.Y.C. are up and coming these days….

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

allie vLuv
