Friday Finds

I’ve been busy the last few days spending time with family and friends, enjoying the holidays, and eating as much food as I can fit in my belly. Today I’m back to the grind, eating healthy, and waking up before 11. Sigh. Here are a few links that cheered me up today and hopefully will make you smile too.

Friday Finds 1.2.15

1. As if Taylor Swift couldn’t be more perfect, she’s also Santa Clause. You can also check out these super cute Swift inspired resolutions.

2. Ever since I saw Catching Kayla, I have been obsessed with watching E:60 stories. Here is another inspirational story about a special friendship between a boy and his dog.

3. Missing the beach and warm weather this winter? Check out this all natural sea mist for your hair and body. Made with purified water, aloe vera, dead sea salt, and essential oils such as sage and lavender, it’ll bring the ocean to you.

4. And lastly, the most powerful photos of 2014.

Friday Finds

Welcome to my first installment of Friday Finds. I feel like I come across articles or videos during the week and am like “that would be a neat thing to post on my blog”, but it’s not something I can write a whole post about. Ya know?

So I decided to create a list on Fridays of the interesting things I’ve seen/read during the week. The list will include: social issues, conscious products,  health and wellness, inspirational stories, and obviously I will throw in some funny videos because a good laugh never hurt anyone. Here is what I have been watching, reading, and found interesting this week.

1. Taylor Swift is donating all of the proceeds from her song “Welcome to New York” to New York City Public Schools. But be careful of what might happen if you listen to too much Taylor Swift. 

2. Have you seen the controversial catcalling video?  It’s been fairly prevalent in social media this week. But what may be even more controversial is this man’s response.

3. This is an interesting article about what foods may be threatened by climate change. Try not to panic, but chocolate and wine are on the list.

 

4. Check out Old Wool New mittens, hats, and gloves. They’re made out of old sweaters and look super warm. Be prepared, winter is coming!

5. In this video adults and kids are asked what they would change about their bodies. It’s one of those videos that really makes you think. 

6. And here is a video of a baby otter learning how to swim. Enjoy the cuteness.

Monday Motivation

Because Mondays are hard and sometimes we need a little inspiration.

shake it off

I-I-I shake it off, I shake it off. Shake off the negativity and whatever doesn’t serve you today. I shook the snow off my shoes this morning… Because it snowed last night… Dear Momma Nature, it’s fall, not winter. Get it together.
