WHAT I’M LISTENING TO | APRIL PLAYLIST

This month I’ve been listening to slightly more toned-down tunes. I discovered the band ARIZONA and am in love, and I’ve also downloaded e a couple remixed versions of songs I already know and love. The remix to Aurora’s Running With The Wolves makes me feel like I’m running through the jungle; and do you remember…

ETHICAL YOGA BRAND ROUNDUP

Seeing as one of the main tenets of the yogic lifestyle is “Do No Harm,” I find it curious that so many yoga apparel companies (cough, Lululemon, cough) out there are operating in questionable ways when it comes to sustainability and ethics.

MARCH PLAYLIST- WHAT I’M LISTENING TO

Something you might not know about me- I’m a total music junkie. I spend hours on Spotify every month searching for new artists and music to fit my current mood.

REFLECTIONS & INTENTIONS

  I realize it is now the month of February, so posting my New Years Resolutions for 2016 at this point is a little ridiculous.

LET’S CHANGE THE STANDARD OF BEAUTY

“The average woman uses about 12 personal care products daily, the average man uses about 6, each containing a dozen or more chemicals.” Has our obsession with a taught and conditioned standard of beauty become so overpowering that we’re willing to slather our bodies in toxins to hold up to this standard? Or are most…
