Hi.

My name is Kaylie! I started blogging over four years ago with the intention to show women that style comes in all shapes and sizes! After taking a trip to India last year, I re-branded The Sweltering Sweater into an ethical fashion blog. I want my readers to feel good about the clothes they're wearing, as well as where they came from!

If you saw one of my most recent Instagram posts, then you know that I have been really struggling lately with my blog and where I want it to go. I will find random spurts of inspiration, but overall I’ve felt like this season of blogging has become more of an obligatory activity I fit in-between work, leading a bible study, preparing for this past week’s holidays and having family come stay with me every few weeks.

During these times of monotony and doubt, I find writing to be especially therapeutic. Whether I am journaling about my day, an awesome quiet time I had or just reminiscing on good times with good friends, I always find that taking a moment to sit and sketch or write is really good for me.

That is why I was so thrilled to partner with Woodchuck USA - a Minneapolis based company that specializes in customized wooden gifts. As a partner, I get to try out one of the hundreds of Woodchuck USA products and let you know what I think about them.

This quarter, I received their engraved ADVENTURE travel journal. This not only allows for a space where I can freely write, but it also has a purpose of planning for or reminiscing on past trips. You can write down all of the places you want to go at the front of the journal and then take it trip by trip throughout the rest. You write down your destination and what steps you’ll take to get there, then your favorite part of the trip and a post travel evaluation, followed by a picture from your adventure.

Woodchuck USA not only makes really high quality products, but they are also eco-friendly focused. When you buy a product, you participate in their buy one, plant one program which is working to reforest our planet by planting one tree per order!
