Fashion Revolution Day January 24th 2014

This year is already starting off to be amazing.  I am really feeling open to some big positive shifts in the universe and sharing the fun that is presented to me and hope that you will all share what you’re up to as well.  With the first annual Fashion Revolution Day on Friday January 24th…take some time to think about:

WHO MADE YOUR CLOTHES?   And share you thoughts with a friend. :)
