Our main story today is about Blair Armstrong, the founder of GILDED BODY. They make luxury body skincare and are on a social mission to provide accessible dermatology care to underinsured women and girls.
Our main story today is about Jessica and her company, Le Mondeur, which makes ethnically handcrafted shoes in Portugal, using artisan textiles from around the world.
