EARTH DAY

Tree huggers unite! Today we celebrate our mother earth. Here are a few of my favorite earth-loving products to get you in the spirit.

  1. (From top left) Amour Vert sells terrific, soft basics made from organic materials. Plus they sell a tree for every t-shirt sold. Do your part and get this adorably french striped number. 2. I’m dying to get a jar of Monastery Attar Repair Concentrate. Their products are made from whole, natural ingredients and in spirit of Earth Day, everything is 20% off! 3. Whenever I do a major closet cleanse, I bring my castoffs to Urbanity. The staff feels like family and their racks are full of the best of the best new and used styles. 4. It just wouldn’t be a weekend without a trip to Lush. I can hardly get through the week without a bath with my favorite Yoga Bath Bomb.

WHAT SHE PINNIN’?

  1. (Clockwise from top left) These amazing slippers are sold out, but I’m crossing my fingers (and toes) they’ll be restocked. 2. I may or may not have this ruffled blouse in my cart and I may or may not buy it right after I post this. 3. Into The Gloss covered the best of the best makeup looks from NYFW. My favorite? The bare-faced look Proenza Schouler sent down the runway. 4. These gem enamel pins are more affordable than the real-deal and look way cool pinned on a black leather jacket.

OH HI, NEW YEAR

It’s been quite a year, hasn’t it? Full of ups, downs, and all things in between.

Contrary to popular belief, I think 2016 has been very good year. However, I am looking forward to a fresh start and 2017 is looking very promising. Here’s a few things I did and will do at the start of the new year to set me up for a better tomorrow.

The morning routine For the past couple days, I’ve been instituting my own version of the Miracle Morning. Waking up at 5:30 (yes, AM), 6 mins of meditation, and a short yoga session helps me get my day off on the right foot.

If you’re looking to reboot your morning routine, I love Rebecca Campbell’s light sourcing guided meditation and Asana Rebel’s app has a couple quick practices to get your Om on in 6 mins or less.

Pamper myself To honor my physical body, I’ve taken more time to take care of me. From getting my bangs trimmed to a yoga class at my favorite studio to a luxurious bath with my favorite Lush bath products. A little pampering is a great way to show yourself love and compassion.

Clean and prep Of course, I have to do a few less luxurious things to get 2017 off on the right foot. Groceries, laundry, cleaning & straightening are just a few of the must-dos on my list.Today, I’m tackling a big project: going through the junk from under our bed.

If you need a little inspiration to start your own new year cleaning spree, I highly recommend Marie Kondo’s Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

Dance more My man got us tickets to see Sleater – Kinney on NYE and I couldn’t have imagined a better way to ring in the new year. Connecting with people I’m closest with, imbibing (just a little), and dancing around like a mad woman while Carrie and Corin sang me home.

There’s always a reason to celebrate and I’m making a mental note to dance much more in the new year!

How do you plan on making 2017 a better year?
