What Will You Radiate?


Authenticity, kindness, passion, and joy are a few words that come to mind when I think of Radiate Market and it's founders, Alyssa and Kiera. Radiate is an online marketplace dedicated to empowering artisans from regions of the developing world by selling their products to a wider market. Basically it's a shop with beautiful, handmade jewelry that is actually giving back to the artisans and their communities. Alyssa and Kiera started Radiate at just 19 years old, and have already made such an global impact. Their excitement, focus, and passion is so evident, and this is a project that I am so excited to have small part in.  

Practically Imperfect is all about capturing the beauty of imperfections and the joy of each day. I am all about empowering others through kindness, authenticity, and joy- which is exactly what the team at Radiate does! When I received my necklace from Radiate, I also received a question. It read, "What will you radiate?" I loved this question because it made me recognize and think about the values I hold to be most important. If I go through each day with those specific values in mind, they will reflect in my actions. There are so many incredible traits that I aim to radiate, but the word I kept returning to was joy. I think that when you choose to radiate joy, other traits like kindness, positivity, love, and light will also shine from within. And I think the world could use a whole lot more of those things! I'd love to know in the comments below, what do you aim to radiate? 

Great news: Radiate Market is offering free shipping with the code "PracticallyImperfect" if you're interesting in supporting this awesome cause and getting some really beautiful jewelry. I am so excited to be taking over Radiate's Instagram today too, so make sure to check out my posts and give them a follow!
