Well, there's no minute like the last minute right?! So this year more than ever I've seen friends and family shopping small, local, fair-trade, B Corp, and handmade! THAT is a good thing!
I wanted to hop on real quick like and share with you some resources I've come across lately just in case you're still cyber-shopping through your gift list for Christmas, Hanukah, or even a jump start on birthdays, Valentine's, anniversaries, & Mother's/Father's Day too!
Here we go!

Jamie Ivey, host of The Happy Hour, has procured and extensive list of great people to shop with online for your gifting! She runs through the list with her pal Jen Hatmaker and you can listen to that episode here AND you can read through the show notes where she has taken time to link us to all the shops! How nice is Jamie?! #nicelist
Shannon & Brandi, The Fairtrade Fashionistas, have put together a list of deal codes to shop online with several companies who are committed to producing and selling fairly traded/ethically sourced goods! In the same way "shop small/shop local" is making an impact for small business owners, shopping fair-trade, ethically sourced, or B Corp businesses and products is changing lives at home and around the world! Talk about getting the most bang for your buck! Especially when shopping fair-trade can typically mean spending more, NOW is a great time to catch some sales and impact lives with your shopping. Who knows, you may find a new favorite to shop with year round! I'm discovering that most companies like this have things on sale ALL the time. BIG THANKS to these gals for putting together this list of online coupon codes!

I love shoes! ESPECIALLY shoes that change lives.
(Don't forget to shop The Root Collective for life changing shoes too! Listen to Bethany Tran's story of how she founded TRC here!)
I'm discovering that buying shoes that are fair trade, B Corp, and handmade does not mean you are buying low quality, unstylish, and uncomfortable shoes! QUITE the opposite friend, quite the opposite! You've probably seen TOMS slip ons walking around on young collegiate or post-collegiate hipster types but let me tell you there's a reason why...they are so comfortable! AND TOMS gives a pair of shoes to someone in need for every pair we buy, YES even the things we buy on sale! So, I've shopped through the sale tab at TOMS and picked a few favorites for you! Please note, this sampling doesn't come close to what all they have to offer! I didn't even get to the rain boots, backpacks, mens shoes, or boys shoes!
Clockwise from top left:
1. Women's Rose Gold Slip-ons would be so cute for a comfy change at a wedding. I have a friend who married on St. Patrick's Day and she wore kelly green TOMS slip ons!
2. KIDS! This multi-color kids classic slip on would go with EVERYTHING in your little girl's closet!
3. Women's Platform Wedge in a black/natural metallic. So cute and versatile!
4. Cozy Women's multi-color lined slip-ons for some extra style and warmth!
5. Women's classic slip-ons in a natural with a polka-dot!
6. Women's Lunata Booties with fringe in Cognac! So cool and I saw some without fringe too. :)
Be sure to shop their holiday gift guide and read the story behind the work TOMS does too. So, like I said these are ALL on the SALE page and when you shop through my link as a first time customer you'll get $20 off your order! Check out the Marketplace for items like accessories offered by TOMS partners.
Click through the collage pic and save $20.
Shop on shoe lover, shop on!
So that's it, just a real quick sampling of how you can make a life changing impact while you get great deals on Cyber Monday and beyond!
Now go change the world!
