Soul Flower + A Giveaway

DSC_1138Quality yoga gear has been increasingly important to me as I’ve deepened my personal practice and love of the lifestyle. Another thing that has always been important to me as well is that complanies make an effort to be eco-friendly and ethically source their products. Soul Flower does that and more, they even print their catalogs using soy-based inks on recycled paper!

I absolutely love their products and am super excited to be partnering with them to give away a pair of organic cotton cropped leggings and t back bralette in the color of the winners choice! Many of you are already following me on Instagram, so be sure to claim your entry and check out other ways to enter below:

Caroline’s Carts, a shopping cart with an extra-large, forward-facing seat that’s specially designed for kids and adults with special needs, is going to be available nationwide. Starting in March, Target will offer the seriously sweet seat in most of its stores so more kiddos can roll down its aisles in style. @Check out the full story here!lkitFacebook //Instagram //BlogLovin // Twitter // Sponsor

Scarves and Art

DSC_0652Detroit in January is pretty unforgiving. Snow and chilled winds aside, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to check out the Heidleburg Project. I heard whispers of it years ago, and saw it on Anthony Bourdains episode featuring Motor City and couldn’t wait to see the art with my own eyes.

Visiting in January actually had it perks – very few tourists were there so I was able to capture some pretty awesome photos of the location.

Check them out in my post about the history of the Heidelburg Project here!DSC_0640 DSC_0656 DSC_0661

gnotdMove over, Daredevil. A new generation of crusaders is in town. Thanks to the kid-friendly design firm,KidMob — which teaches kids to tackle community-based issues with skills like 3-D modeling and printing, technical drawing and using power tools — children missing limbs got to swap their bulky prosthetics for superhero cyborg arms they created themselves. How amazing is that? Check out the full story here!

Body Image, Target Style, and #NOFOMO

DSC_0845 I’ve been rocking Targets swimsuits for years. They always have up to date styles that you can mix and match, AND you can also mix and match sizes (which is key for me). Buying a bathing suit meant for someone with the same size top and bottom anymore is just..not realistic.

The Target Swim campaign this year is about #NOFOMO. It’s about not missing out on fun summer experiences due to body insecurity. Body insecurity is at this point, something we are all too familiar with. As a teen I can remember spending hours searching for the perfect suit that hid my this, or didn’t show my that. I definitely never imagined I’d publicly post photos of me in a bathing suit online, but in the spirit of the #NOFOMO campaign, it seems appropriate.

Looking back at these photos a week after I took them and remembering how I felt at the time was a good reminder to me that we are often our own worst critics. Most of the time, our inner dialogue is much more negative than that of people who look at us. Posting these today though is symbolic of me reminding myself of that. It’s about being comfortable with my body, and being comfortable with myself.

gnotdMore than 300 union plumbers from all over Michigan flooded Flint to install free filters for residents, this past weekend. Apparently, not all the faucets in Flint can fit a filter, which each resident of the city desperately needs in order to get rid of lead in their drinking water. Some of the faucets are older and oddly shaped, making the installation of a filter nearly impossible. Local plumbers with United Association Local 370 in Flint have been going door-to-door making sure that faucets are filter ready since October! Check out the full story here.
