Post image for 10 Things You Might Not Know About Bees & Honey

This guest post comes from our contributor FP Naomi. Read more »

Shaya- As an almond grower, I see first hand how important bees are to our agriculture. Bees help produce everything from kiwis, to blueberries, nuts, grains, oranges and many stone fruits. The best byproduct of this pollination is the honey! Without these bees, many of the numerous fruits we all enjoy would be gone. Do you know what would happen to these hives if the farmers didn't "steal" the honey. Essentially the Queen will run out of space, the drones would die, leading to the hive failure. HIVE failure. We already have enough issue with hive loss due to the Colony Collapse. We can't just go neglecting the honey. Then where are the bees? Extraction of the honey is essential for is continuing existence. The life of a bee is to make honey via pollination and reproduction. So saying " they work so hard" is true. They work extremely hard and are very intelligent insects. They function exactly how nature designed them to. However, it IS their purpose to make honey. Do you feel the same about an onion, that has worked very hard growing, soaking in sun, feeding on nutrients from the earth, then it's harvested right at its prime, before it's had its chance to seed, and reproduce? It's the cycle of farming, the bees and their honey are imperative to the production of our country's, and the worlds food supply.

The best skincare regime I ever implemented into my life was to apply a mask of pure honey on my face before bedtime. Since it's a natural remedy, it takes a month or two to build up. If you do it at least five nights a week, your skin will look flawless. Honey reduces redness, and helped me skin so much! I absolutely love what it has done for me. Love!

When we attended the Renegade Craft Fair on Saturday in Austin, I was on the hunt for cool street style looks to capture. A girl with gorgeous long hair and sun kissed skin caught my attention. Read more »

Post image for SXSW Photo Diary: Part 2

Julia pretty much summed up our trip to SXSW in her diary post, but I wanted to share some photos that I took along the way as well. When you travel with someone, you may be with them at all the same places, but each person captures the trip from their own perspective. Read more »

Post image for Behind The Scenes Of The Ride (Part 2)

When you think of a Vegas wedding, thoughts may come to mind of spur of the moment, perhaps alcohol-induced, short-lived marriages. But there is something so romantic about it to me… the feeling of spontaneity, of letting yourself get lost in the moment, and following your heart. Feeling so in love with someone that it just can’t wait, and you don’t need anyone else there beyond your two perfectly connected souls. Read more »

Exactly my thoughts, Rorschach! I very rarely find horoscopes accurate, & even when they are I know it's just the ratio of coincidence. It makes me sad that grown adults think balls of rock & burning gas determine their lives instead of their opportunities & choices, especially when they reject a potential job or SO based on zodiac crap. I guess people choose to believe in horoscopes because they don't want to feel responsible for mistakes so they blame "the stars".
Rorschach -Mar 17, 2014, 2:34PM
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forer_Effect This is why you all think these are so "accurate". Fun, maybe. I don't understand how a person with money could ever choose to spend it on this.

Post image for Weekend Getaways: The Desert

If the cold weather won’t escape me… I’ll escape it. I’m dreaming of a place where the sun shines high in the sky; beating down, down, down, with no remorse. Where there are cacti aplenty, prickles and all, standing tall, one by one, with no need for anything other than what they already have. The ground is dusty, my boots are covered, and I don’t care one bit. I like it that way. I’ll roam and roam, free as can be, with nowhere to go but onward. Read more »

I loved the feature "Saturday Do" that you guys had on the blog a while ago... it was my favorite! Though I still love the Bldg 25, it would be nice if you could bring "Saturday Do" back! xox
Bonnie -Mar 16, 2014, 12:51PM
You have got to be kidding! I live in the desert, you wear your heaviest jeans and boots. I guess FP has never been to desert territory, there are rattle snakes abundant. Not to mention I carry my Ruger .38 with snake load in it, with the outfit you've got going what are you going to do beat them off with the purse? Silly, silly FP!

Be careful with twists -- it's not recommended for to-be mammas. xo
Kristen -Mar 12, 2014, 10:28AM
Good call, Margaret! I forgot to mention that in there. I'm still in my first trimester {out next week}, so I'll personally be practicing twists until the 2nd trimester.

Sage, you might find your horoscope to be inaccurate because you were born on a cusp? Maybe check the sign before and after yours. It might ring more true for you. I have found the Free People horoscopes to be the most accurate I've ever read.
Shelley -Mar 12, 2014, 9:16PM
So right on. Usually I anxiously wait until Sunday to read my Free People horoscope but this week has been so busy that I only have time to check it out now. This week has been very frustrating so far. Now at least I have more of an understanding why! https://www.etsy.com/shop/EarthChildArt?ref=si_shop
