I made the switch from using body lotion to oil about a year ago, and haven’t looked back since. Read more »

I've heard using Thyme is amazing on treating acne, even better than benzoyl peroxide

I made the switch about two years ago to coconut oil after showering, and I'd really like to start trying to infuse some of my favorite essential oil and herbal fragrances into it! I've even started using coconut oil instead of facial moisturizer... it doesn't make me break out because of its natural antiseptic properties. <3 dani

Post image for Wanderlust Whistler Bound

I went to my first Wanderlust festival in 2012. I was just one year out of college, and you could say I was still a kid. Those brief two days of yoga classes, Ayurveda workshops, yoga spectaculars, and ancient Indian storytelling opened my eyes in ways that I could never have imagined. I left Wanderlust that year changed forever. Read more »

Post image for Organic vs. Conventional: The Dirty Dozen

I remember when the term “organic” first started becoming a thing – in my world, at least. I would hear it being thrown around here and there, but finding an organic vegetable in my everyday supermarket was basically a joke. Read more »

i remember when the whole organic thing became all the craze a couple years ago. to me organic was just a way of life. i grew up eating all natural and organic. my mom would buy everything from whole foods and she even made organic baby food for us. fast forward to today, i'm 21, an environmental science student who only shops organic. it can be more expensive but you just need to trade it out for something else. instead of going to bars every weekend spend that money on organic food. great post, it would be nice to have a post on GMOs and the foods to avoid. (CORN AND WHEAT!!!) unless organic.

Post image for XPoNential Music Festival 2014 Lineup

Tomorrow, my favorite local festival kicks off just over the bridge from Philly, in Camden – the XPoNential Music Festival! If you’re a longtime reader of this blog you’ve heard me rave about this festival, that I’ve attended every year since it started. WXPN is the non-commercial, member-supported radio service of the University of Pennsylvania – and my go-to for music discovery.  Read more »

I wish that I lived somewhere where they had music festivals, and that I had friends who wanted to go! It sounds like thus is sponsored by college radio? College radio is a great way to discover new bands. Sadly it seems to be getting shut down at many universities. Album 88 has been a great station out of Georgia a State University for decades (playing bands like the B-52's, The Damned, REM in their early days), and now GSU has given most of their air time to GPB for talk radio. Awful!! I don't want to hear only music that's approved by Clear Channel and other corporations.

Fantastic! Great city to live in (or near). #xpnfest starts tomorrow. WooHAa

Wow. that looks so incredibly delicious!!! I wish I knew how to bake, unfortunately my skill set in the kitchen doesn't extend beyond the microwaving of frozen dinners!!! The Weaver Of Words.....give me 15 words and I'll tell you a tale
Heather Tobey -Jul 24, 2014, 4:44PM
This is SO good! I just made it on this thunderstormy day here in Virginia with a zucchini from my garden. It has the perfect amount of deep sweetness with the coconut sugar and the pecans are a wonderful little crunch. I made it vegan by using two flax eggs and the texture still turned out great! I appreciate this gf bread recipe SO much! Thank you!

I’m always excited to see what my coworkers will wear to the office everyday. The sheer variety of personal style and expression here is astounding, inspiring, and aspirational … all at once. If I’m ever feeling at a loss for stylistic influence, I need only look to my left or right. It’s all right there. Read more »

Post image for DIY Giant Triangle Driftwood Crystal Dreamcatcher

Lately I’ve been doing lots of creating. I usually just gather whatever natural-looking materials I can find, put on some music, light a stick of incense, and see what happens. And these days, I’ve been winding up with lots of triangular dreamcatcher-looking creations. Read more »

traditional dreamcatchers can be of all shapes and sizes, but a very key piece in it being a "dreamcatcher" is the handspun web. bad dreams are held until they are destroyed by the first rays of the sun. good dreams find their way to the center of the hoop where they enter the life of the dreamer. this is the true purpose of native american dreamcatchers. i handcraft many types of traditional dreamcatchers and native goods with my mother, making traditional pieces using our ancestors sacred methods. you can find our pieces at kindly, gowa

I love marigolds because they are beautiful, are yellow which relates to my inner Leo, and while being so gorgeous and delicate they represent jealousy. I think that juxtaposition is wondrous. xo katie at
Kenzie Smith -Jul 24, 2014, 12:31AM
Sunflowers have been my favorite for quite some time now. They are such beautiful flowers! It helps that my favorite color is yellow :D
