Post image for What Author Speaks To You The Most?

For me it has always been Jack Kerouac. My introduction to his writing was of course On The Road but I think of all his novels “Big Sur” speaks to me the most. Read more »

Post image for On the Road: A Movie We Can’t Wait to See

“The best teacher is experience.”

~Jack Kerouac

On the Road is one of those books I read in college that has stuck in my soul ever since. There’s something about Jack Kerouac’s way of writing that gets my heart beating so fast. I loved the energy I loved the rhythm it had — it got me hooked on the Beatniks, that’s for sure!

I've been counting down until it's release as well, it looks like such a wonderfully constructed movie. Although I must admit, I haven't read the book, I'll have to rectify that!
Lou -Jul 09, 2012, 5:23PM
my favorite book. I just love Jack's output, I also love creations of his Beatniks friends. Poetry, books, philosophy.... I was 13 years old when I heard about this book. It was an magical moment in my life when I finally bought this book. Now I'm 18 and I read it many times. I really want to read every part of "The Duluoz Legend". For example "The Dharma Bums" was also great. Not so shocking for soul :) like "On the road" but I was impressed too. Do you also think that "On the road" is the perfect book for vacation? peace, Lou

Post image for DIY Yoga Mat Cleaning Spray

We do yoga to take care of our bodies, but there’s something else that we mustn’t forget to provide with a little TLC from time to time: our yoga mats. You can totally go out and buy a cleaner for your mat… OR you can make one yourself. Read more »

I have a manduka mat and have just finished a bottle of their own spray which has oils in it. I'm guessing if they make their own for their mats with oils it must be okay so will be giving this ago instead of buying another bottle
Erikka -Jul 06, 2014, 10:52PM
I agree with not using essential oils on a non-slip mat. I have had my mat for several years now. It's non-slip and the only thing I've used to clean it is vinegar.

Post image for Botanical Art Prints: An Addiction

I have a little bit of a thing for botanical prints… I love how natural yet organized they look, and I think they’d make such amazing wall art for the home! I recently discovered the etsy shop Belle Botanica, a treasure trove of vintage and antique inspired botanical art prints,  and I am in love… Read more »

I'm madly in love with botanical art prints too! I love the one with bees on here. I also have a few framed real butterflies, maybe I'm secretly a science nerd at heart?

Is there anything more freeing and nostalgic than running through a sprinkler? Read more »

Just make sure before you do that the sprinkler isn't fed through a brown water system... that strange smell does not wash out of backpacks/clothes. I know from experience :(

Post image for Ask Brian: Ex-Factor

“Dear Brian…I am still friends with most of my exes, and hang out with them from time to time. The person I’m seeing now doesn’t understand it, and doesn’t speak to any of their exes.  We argue about it all the time and neither of us can understand the other side. What are your thoughts on staying friends after breaking up?” Read more »

Anna -Jul 09, 2012, 10:37PM
This was a accurate and effective expression of my feeling towards my boyfriend hanging out with his ex. Couldn't have worded things better, thank you!
