Post image for DIY Fall Garland

It may not be holiday season, but there’s no reason we can’t celebrate fall season by decorating our homes with garland. Today we’re talking about making garland from an autumn staple: pinecones. This is a really simple DIY that is best done sitting around a fire (whether outdoors or in), laughing with loved ones. Maybe you can even start it off by taking a walk with friends, collecting pinecones and any other bits of nature that have fallen to the ground this season. Read more »

I would like to validate Daria, Viv, Emma, and Maria in the pain that they have felt and in their frustration with the messages to just "be positive", "doing x, y, and z will fix all your problems", etc. I suffered many years with internal issues that lead me to great resentment toward people who promote such ideas of an easy fix to deep suffering. I have worked hard on my issues for two years now and have recently, and quite joyfully, discovered the Free People Blog. I have found this blog extraordinarily inspiring and helpful in its ideas to create a mindful, joyful life. True, none of the posts have solved my life's issues in their entirety, but I do not believe that that is Free People's and its bloggers intention. It is merely a lifestyle blog to share conceptualizations and visualizations of accumulating positive experiences, thus contributing to a life worth living. In regards to Maria's thoughts on essentially how messed up this post/blog/company is for selling pricy, non-essential items and exclaiming seemingly hypocritical messages about simplicity, I absolutely see where you are coming from. I thought about buying my FP vegan leather jacket for over five months simply because the price tag overwhelmed me. (Happy to say, I finally bought it and truly love it! Hard earned money well spent.) At the same time, they are a clothing company in a capitalist society. Of course they put a pretty price tag on their items. I have not seen them deny that fact; however, I only discovered this blog a month ago. As a FP customer (and a budgeted college student), I buy these products and follow this blog because, as mentioned above, it gives me great thoughts on living a centered life. I have bought a few items from FP because I feel that the particular item exudes my own personality when paired with other meaningful items I own, such as a pendant my mother and grandmother bought me a few years back. Some blog posts, of course, are not my cup of tea; however, some resonate with how I live my life and how I can improve the quality of my life based on my personal values. I bring myself to the blog instead of expecting the blog to bring forth my self. Just wanted to give another prospective on the ideas presented! Naturally, I am coming across this post and these comments nearly 6 months later...nonetheless, I hope you all can pick through and find some posts that are meaningful to your own life, as I know I have found it to be quite enjoyable!
Emma -Feb 10, 2014, 12:46AM
Spot on Daria! The article is lacking and I came away feeling empty. Thank God I searched through the comments and found yours. You should have written it ! Btw, do you have a blog? I'd love to follow it
