If you're following Chloe May Brown on Instagram - which you should definitely be doing - your feed will not only be blessed with loads of minimalist, ceramics pics, but also a few sneak peeks of her Portland, Maine, space that'll leave you wanting more. Well, she (and her two cats) gave us the ultimate tour of her one bedroom apartment where she finds most of her inspiration, and, long story short, it's pure bliss. Keep on scrollin' to see what we mean. READ MORE

Essential oils are pretty miraculous - they are antibacterial, smell amazing, and can be used in all kinds of helpful ways. But with great power comes great responsibility because they really do mean business.

It's hard to beat the feeling of snagging the perfect new bag that actually holds your lunch and your gym gear without looking weird and lumpy, but if you've scored one of Mercado Global's gorgeous women ones, it comes with the added buzz of supporting the work of Guatemalan women and their families. Founded by Ruth DeGolia while still a Yale undergrad in 2004 (talk about a senior project!), the company is now an international powerhouse that not only provides a living wage to the people behind their products but also creates new infrastructure and support systems along the way. Since there are lots of models for do-good businesses these days - the one-for-one, 501(c)(3), B Corp, etc. - we asked Ruth's partners-in-crime, creative director Meg Koglin and sales director Susana Aguirre, to break down Mercado's for us.
