We love prints all year ’round, but this week we were in love with cozy prints in lovely lilac tones worn with leather jackets, ankle boots, casual pants, and pretty dresses. Oh… and not forgetting printed accessories to add a pattern to an outfit.
Chapter 3 of The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle is titled “Moving deeply into the Now.” In it, Tolle goes into further detail about the importance of the Now and how to remain present. As much as I’ve found the book incredibly enlightening so far, I’ll admit that I still didn’t feel that moment of being purely present that he keeps talking about – until now. I don’t know if it was this latest chapter that helped me or reading the book overall but it was a wonderful moment – I’ll explain how it happened below :). Read More
This week our homepage trend is showcasing FP Movement. Our new workout clothing is full of special details, unique shapes, and punchy colors and prints.

I know many of us here at Free People are doing this, whether it’s yoga, running, or other fun activities that involves fitness. Read More

Those who practice yoga know that, while regular practice will help to strengthen and lengthen your body tremendously, the physical component is just a fraction of what it’s all about. Yoga is a mental and spiritual practice, and in order to truly feel that connection, it seems that it is best when practiced in a calming environment; an environment that reminds you of where you came from – one that feels like nature.

In all my years of doing yoga, I can’t really believe that I’ve never done a retreat. Lately I have been craving a getaway that will not only fulfill my need for sunshine and warmth, but will nourish the mind, body, and soul as well. Read More
As you all probably know by now, I’m from Wales and in this small country there’s an old tradition that involves love: The Welsh Lovespoon. Read More
It’s time to share the results from last week’s eco dyeing experiment! I can’t stress how much I enjoyed this project…it is something I am excited to practice at and do more of. We left off last week with the steaming – I steamed my bundles for an hour and then let them sit in plastic bags overnight to try and let the colors steep a bit more. As for the results…I have both good news and bad news. Read More
