Exactly one week ago, on Sunday, February 9, 2020, seven garment workers died in a fire at an Indian denim factory. I believe that we, as Americans, are to blame for their deaths.Read More

Y’all are in for a real treat today: A Q&A with the self-described “spiritual hypewoman” who has created an inclusive yoga studio in Raleigh, NC! I can confirm that she is indeed one of the most enthusiastic people I know, and she is doing incredible social justice work in our local community by building a unique and diverse group of yoga enthusiasts. I am so excited to introduce y’all to my inspirational friend and yoga teacher, Patrice Graham!Read More
All the little things bringing me joy lately:
1. Our second foster dog, Nala! We received Nala on New Year’s Eve and fostered her for just 2.5 weeks until she went to her furr-ever home. She had a spunky and fun personality and gave us so much love in the short time she was with us. We are so excited that she found her person!Read More

Y’all know I’ve been a fan of shoes made from recycled water bottles for quite some time! So when I learned about DNA Footwear’s “THIS WAS A BOTTLE” collection, which features a lineup of three different styles of sneakers made from recycled plastic, I was pumped to try them! (And I scored a discount code for y’all, too! For 15% off DNA’s sustainable line, use code SOUTHERN2020 at checkout).
There are a lot of factors I consider when buying shoes. Sustainability, comfort, fit, affordability, and style are all important to me. Here is how my pair of DNA Footwear sneakers stacked up on all of these factors:Read More

Sometimes Instagram advertisers miss the mark (I am SO not interested in the long sleeve, giant avocado print swimsuit that keeps popping up on my feed). Other times, they score a slam dunk. I first learned about Pela phone cases from an Instagram ad! I’m really glad for that advertising, because I absolutely love my Pela case. I’m excited to share more about it with y’all, including my own list of pros and cons.
I’ve been using a Pela case for almost a year now, so I’ve truly put it to the test!
Hooray! It’s my annual recap of the books I read last year! This is one of my absolute favorite recurring posts.
I read 28 books in 2019. That is fewer books than I read in 2018, which I keep telling myself doesn’t actually matter. I’m just so insanely competitive with myself! I think I’m especially kicking myself because there were several books that I started (ahem…in May….) that I didn’t quiteeeee finish before the ball dropped in Time’s Square. But ultimately it’s about enjoying what I’m reading, not trying to read more or finish before some arbitrary deadline. Quality over quantity.Read More
As we enter the last week of 2019, it’s time to recap the most popular posts here on Fairly Southern during the past year!
It sure has been a wonderful year of blogging. I’m so grateful to have a space where I can share about all things eco-friendly, ethical, and Southern! And, I love spreading awareness about companies and people who are doing lots of good for others and for the planet.
Without further ado: Here are the most frequently visited blog posts on Fairly Southern in 2019. Starting with number 5:Read More
This has quickly become one of my favorite annual posts! Read on for the highlights (and challenges!) of the past year. I did change one superlative this year: “Scariest Moment” got swapped out for “Warmest Fuzziest Moment.” Because we could all use a little less scary and a little more warm and fuzzy in our lives! But mainly because I always have a hard time coming up with something truly “scary” to write about for Scariest Moment.
Without further ado, here are my 2019 year-end superlatives!

All the little things bringing me joy lately:
1. My sister’s wedding! My only sister got married last month, and I’m so happy for her and her new hubby! I actually didn’t take a single photo that day and am anxiously awaiting the professional photos!
2. Christmas cookies! I actually haven’t had a chance to bake any yet. But that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying some store bought gluten free goodies! Really loving Pamela’s Buttery Sugar Cookies and Mi-Del Gingerbread Men.Read More
