I Heart the Internet-Links I Love

Happy Monday friends!! Review of the week: Before I went to the Philippines I desperately needed a new light weight Spring jacket I bought Everlane’s Anorak in Stone($98) and I’m soooo in love with it! It’s perfectly loose but still rather shapely, water resistant and a great piece to have now that we’re heading into Spring! Yay! Now please enjoy some recent reasons I hearted the internet.

Good Words…On Perfection and Unicorns

Stumbled on this quote from One Love Organics on twitter the other day and just absolutely love it. Perfection is totally a myth and let’s all try to remember that and forgive ourselves and others. Have a gorgeous Monday. View Post

Stay Healthy

Since I’ve been traveling and in the midst of purging and moving to the new place I’ve been deathly afraid of getting sick! Colds and flus are running rampant around me and I have no time to get sick and laid up in bed, so I’ve been more cautious than ever in keeping myself healthy and so far so good!! Let me just preface this post with I am clearly not a doctor, I’ve been practicing the below and have… View Post

I Heart the Internet-Links I Love

(photo via NYT)  Did you guys watch the Oscars last night?! I typically don’t watch award shows, but I honestly wanted to see how Chris Rock would handle his monologue in all the #oscarssowhite controversy –so my review of the week goes to him. I honestly don’t think there’s anyone who could’ve done a better job–he addressed the situation head on and I really respected his comedy for tackling while simultaneously ribbing a heated debate. In case you missed Rock’s monologue you can… View Post

Ethical Cozy Indoors

(santiago wool blanket $84.99) Like I mentioned, I’ve been really really into home things because of the new home to be :).

All I want to do in that kind of weather is watch Netflix, lounge on my couch under a warm throw and light some candles. So here are some ethical blankets, ethical pillows, and ethical candles to keep you warm and cozy indoors. blankets:… View Post

Review of the Week: I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed a game before! But since I’ve been crazy at work and hustling for holidays, it’s definitely been nice to zone out and play one of my new fave games, Two Dots. I kind of love the calming colors, plus it’s leisurely since it’s not timed, but don’t let that pretty laid backness fool you–Two Dots is totally strategic and challenging, especially the further you go and is addictive for real! Hope… View Post

Be Grateful

Hello friends, tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the U.S., a time we spend with family to be grateful for family and friends and all that we are so so soooo lucky to have. I listened to this story on NPR One the other day and they had a guest who was discussing Naikan-a Buddhist practice that teaches “deliberate gratitude” and I found it so inspiring. “…be thankful for more than the turkey this Thanksgiving – thank your roof, your furnace, even… View Post

It’s a complete struggle for me to write after tragic events, how to share positivity in the light of such horrific actions…but the world never fails in giving reasons why to always hope and be good. #PorteOuverte translation “open door” was trending worldwide on Friday. The people of Paris extended their homes to those who needed shelter. Choose kindness always. Also loved this little prayer for life worldwide and life will go on. View Post
