One of my favorite things - and there are many - about living in Chicago is Lollapalooza. I hope everyone stayed an extra day to check out the Art Institute, Millennium Park, and some of our great neighborhoods like Wicker Park, Hyde Park, and Logan Square.

chicago is so amazing!

Post image for meet our wanderlust winner!

i know some of you have been wondering about our wanderlust winner :) the lucky girl is andrea from fairfax, california! i asked her some questions to learn some more about her, and it’s clear she’s a real yoga lover and free spirit – it’s great she was able to experience wanderlust!

treehugging

What is your theme song?

Breathe Me, Sia

If you could go anywhere in the world, free of cost, where would you go?

I’d sail the Caribbean (and the Mediterranean!) with my dad.

If you were stranded on an island, what three things would you want with you?

Since we’re speaking purely in hypotheticals… an eco-friendly, self-sustaining prefab dwelling; an old typewriter with the longest piece of banana paper imaginable; and an extensive supply of vegan pizza.

How would you describe your personal style? What are your favorite items from free people right now?

I’d say I’m kind of a boho badass, rocking torn jeans, oversized beanies and tight tops with draping jewelry and windswept hair. I’m really digging all the boots and the Ruffled Layers Maxi Skirt at Free People right now. And all the rough cut crystal jewelry is awesome (got me some of that).

What is your biggest fear?

Something bad happening to someone in my family.

Winter, spring, summer or fall?

Summer love… salty hair, tan skin, bikinis, booty shorts, fresh coconuts…

What color are you?

I am chartreuse.

What is your motto?

Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu: May ALL beings EVERYWHERE be happy, free, and fully expressed, and may each of us live our lives to that end.

What is your favorite hobby?

Yoga! Though it’s much more than just a hobby…

If you could spend a day with anyone – dead or alive – who would it be?

A dinosaur (preferably not of the carnivorous variety…) or Pattabhi Jois

What was your favorite thing about Wanderlust?

Live music during yoga classes, especially Chid Rasa with Janet Stone and Hareesh Wallis. So decadent. So galvanizing to the soul. One word: yum.

AndreaJanetWL

here she is getting an adjustment from yoga instructor janet stone at wanderlust :)

Post image for a few from the black keys

P1010046

i saw the black keys this past friday night at great plaza at penn’s landing in philly. i got there right as they went onstage and by then the venue was packed – my one complaint about this venue is that if you get there late, you will not be able to see the stage.  it’s a great spot though, right on the river, and it was a beautiful night! the next show i’m going to at great plaza is my morning jacket and i will be sure to get there early for that one :)

the best part of the show for me was the beginning – they opened with “thickfreakness,” “girl is on my mind” and “10 a.m. automatic,” all awesome songs. they played a lot from their new album too and it sounded great!

this friday is local natives at first unitarian church yay!

Post image for i like to dream…

here is some imagery, words and music that inspired our new web theme, “magic carpet ride.”

last night i had the most magical dream.

i laid down my head and my eyes filled with beauty. i felt as if i was spinning in the air and when i looked down i was traveling the sky on my magic carpet…

the sun warmed my face as i swept through the air, my long hair glistened in the sun, trailing behind me. my rug danced around the clouds as i struggled to hold on. i was soaring fast, the wind fleeting past me over the sea and mountains, so fast yet so light. the lights of the cities created circles of lights spinning around in my mind. hanging high the stars created enchanting patterns on the streets below.

so far away, yet i could touch the colors of the world.

i was almost engulfed in the waves of the sea below but i flew so fast the breeze took me in. mist in my hair and eyes all the while spinning lights burned into my eyes creating color on the ocean floor.

i woke with the essence of my dream still in the air around me. when i woke everything came to life. deep passionate colors, exquisite tiles… so inspired i reached for my paintbox drawing from the energy, passion and memories of my magical ride.

i started to paint the patterns of the lights below me. i painted the beauty i saw in the moroccan landscape below, the patterns the tiles made in my eyes. the colors of my dream so bright yet muted by the sea. painting with watercolor my magic carpet patterns, persian rugs and textiles.

my dream is to never be forgotten…i will never let go of this magic carpet ride.

- words written by fp girls here at the home office.

and here is a playlist i put together using some of the songs that inspired our creative team, as well as some that this theme brought to my mind.
