Post image for July Mood Board: Unplug, Disconnect, Detox

After a 24 hour digital detox, we learned that in order to connect, to really invest in people and ourselves, we had to disconnect from the technology we have so readily at our fingertips. This is a mood board to keep us inspired.

Honestly, I'm grateful for so many things in my life, but if I had to choose it would be that truly grateful for my loved ones health. Being able to see them everyday and share moments with them. I'm also truly grateful financially. Sure I can't afford everything I want, but I have what I need and I'm truly grateful for that. Finally, I'm grateful that I'm right here, typing, being able to enjoy my life, happy, and having all this love and support from the ones I love. Thank you ✨

I'm so sorry. I hate to be "that" person, but there is a typo in your posting and I feel that you should know so it can be corrected before anyone else sees it. In the first paragraph, " ...popular, making evening the simplest words..." I believe "evening" should be replaced with "even". You may delete my comment if you wish after the correction is made. :)

Hi Sadie, first of all I wanted to thank you for writing this comprehensive tutorial, I loved reading it. And I wanted to ask you, what material did you use for the soaking in the film of the very first photo? I adore those colors and the dreamlike quality of the pics. Thanks again!
Sadie -Jun 28, 2015, 9:02AM
Hi Christina! When drying the film using the methods I listed above (rice, then air drying) I actually just leave the film in the canister. Some people do take the film out of the canister and let it hang to let it air dry - usually in their dark room or in a pitch black/safe lit bathroom. While hang drying it in the dark is certainly faster than drying it in the canister, I just think it is a bit more simple to leave it in the canister and wait a bit longer for it to dry. :)

Hey, You should add a bit of raw sugar to the recipe because salt tenda to dry out your hair with repeated use. Sugar helps boosts volume big time.

Post image for DIY Mason Jar Fresh Herb Garden

This post comes from our blog intern, Aubrie!

Chelsea -Nov 04, 2015, 7:55AM
The herb garden using a non-draining material will not work in the long run. Herbs typically need lots of light and drainage - most are from the Mediterranean region or like that kind of environment (rosemary, oregano) and thrive best with direct sunlight and lots of drainage. While the mason jars are cute, the plants won't last long or thrive. A second option is to harvest your plants from outside (plant in free-draining potting soil in a pot with a hole in direct sunlight, water daily) and put the cut herbs in cute labeled mason jars with water in it. This will ensure the longevity of the plant. However, if it's just for aesthetics - go for it. Who doesn't like cute stuff? For those of you who have green algae - it's natural. If you were doing this for a terrarium and using other plant material (ferns, plants that prefer low light), I would add an inch or so of pebbles and mix in activated charcoal to reduce algae production. It doesn't make your herbs bad for you - it just means it has a lot of water which can lead to root rot. Which in turn, kills the plant. Signed, a horticulturalist.
Shea -Aug 10, 2015, 8:32PM
I have had an indoor mason jar garden for a while, and hooray for its cuteness! Unfortunately, many herbs and plants will eventually die and experience root rot if you aren't using VERY well draining soil. ( I recently experimented with mixing sand into all potting soil I use, which enhances drainage). As mentioned by another person, it would be wise to put about 1" of pebbles on the bottom of the jar!
