1. Rescued dogs + a caring man + a tractor + barrels= the cutest dog train you’ll ever see.

2. The Emmys may be well over, but I’m still lovin’ these #AskHerMore red carpet Q&As.

3. Could this creepy crawler be the answer to our plastic waste prayers?

4. Shop for a cause! So many 70’s inspired pieces make up Revolve’s latest collaboration that donates 30% of each sale to Stand Up 2 Cancer.

Friday Finds 2

1. Wolves were absent from Yellowstone National Park for 70 years until they were reintroduced in the 90s. Check out this video to see exactly how the wolves changed their surroundings. The results are astounding (in a good way)!

2. Check out the 2014 CNN Hero of the Year, Pen Farthing. He started a nonprofit that reunites soldiers with the dogs and cats they left behind during combat. I can’t even put into words how awesome I think that is.

3. Cold weather and candles go hand in hand, but your candles made of paraffin wax may be giving off toxic fumes. Ew. Instead check out these clean burning coconut wax candles.

4. Remember the post I did about Trend Tribe? Well they have some pretty cool stuff on their blog. This week Samantha did an interview with the founder of Sundara, which is a nonprofit that provides soap to urban slums in India, Haiti, and Ghana.
