I Heart the Internet-Links I Love

Say YES! to Sustainable Accessories by Refugees in the US

Friends, I rarely post on crowd-funding campaigns, but Moola-Hoop, a crowd-funding site for female entrepreneurs, sent information on the Say YES campaign and I decided to make an exception(!) and said YES! Say YES is a wonderful collaboration between Open Arms a company that provides fair waged jobs to refugees in Austin, Texas and the women owned eco-conscious brand Blue Avocado. This video is what really made ME say yes to Say YES. The story of Odile is unimaginable and… View Post

What I Wore-Summer Rainy Day Outfit

Rainy warm days used to be a little tricky for me. Because my feet get super hot (*blushing*), so wearing boots or galoshes while it’s already hot is not my ideal solution to summer rain.

Good Habits: Start a Routine

(Source Archive.com) So I’ve started to think having a routine would be a very good habit. I read this post on the Good Lifer and it really really inspired me. I love the idea of having a “very considered manner”  to your day. The above routine is from The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin…simple and thoughtful and grounded in two questions: “What good shall I do this day?” and “What good have I done today?” Not a bad way to evaluate… View Post
