Post image for January Catalog Illustrations

We have a new graphic design assistant on our team and she did these gorgeous watercolor illustrations of some of the images from our January catalog! We were so amazed we had to share them. I have always loved watercolor and they way artists use it sparingly to convey such detail and emotion, and she is so skilled at doing just that. Read more »

Ah! I love Steamboat Springs! My mom lives not too far and she took me up there when I visited last year- gorgeous place! If she ever remarries, I told her that where we're having her wedding (I get to plan it). :)

Post image for Pastel Nails To Brighten Winter Wardrobes

The holidays are over and I’m itching for spring to come. The winter is starting to get to me and all I see myself doing is lusting after bright tones, happy patterns, and dreaming of summer vacations. The early dark evenings are getting to me and I’m starting to get bored of wearing my winter coat. So, to beat these winter blues I decided to start wearing happier colors on my nails adding some life to my monochromatic winter wardrobe. Read more »

Post image for Monday Quote: Be Willing To Let Go

One of the most frustrating and wonderful things about life is that it never goes quite like we plan. Read more »

Amen to that! We always remind people that the cycles of the moon can help to remind us (in addition to perfect energy) for letting go and releasing all that we no longer need. The full moon each and every month is the perfect time to release and let go...and then the New Moon is the perfect time to ask for want you want! Although letting go can be difficult at times, it is important to make room for the new. We have a video on 'The Cycles of the Moon' explaining short and easy exercises for letting go: Much love Free People!!! We love all that you do!!!! Love, Ali and Greta YouTube: The Twin Tree Channel

Post image for How To Cleanse Your Home

Over the holidays I was given a gift from Kim Krans from The Wild Unknown. As soon as I opened the box the smell refreshed the air around me. Inside was a bundle of wild harvested black sage, Mexican sage, juniper, lavender, lemon verbena, jasmine, lupine, cedar, breath of heaven, and roses. Hanging delicately from a tie dyed ribbon was this quote:

“Strike another match, start anew”

~ Bob Dylan

What a fantastic gift! I smudge pretty often, too. Usually on new moons. You can cleanse your aura with it, as well. 0:)

I absolutely agree with Lindsey, but I also think that herbs aren't only allowed to be used by one group of people. We are all connected to the Earth, and if we walk peacefully with purpose, intent, and respect, then there is no reason to feel guilty about burning any herb. It crosses a line when you falsely advertise that you are one of the First People, or mock sacred rituals, or disrespect native culture in any way. I would not wear a headdress or attend a seminar on "shamanism" because I find it disrespectful. I do, however, burn sage to cleanse my house from negativity and use local plants in rituals. I do not claim to be of First People descent, nor do I claim to have any authority on their spiritual practices. Indigenous traditions develop in relation to local flora and fauna, geology and weather. Even though I am of European ancestry I find that it makes more sense to adapt my personal spirituality to my environment. This includes using sage, mint, cedar etc, and learning from local animals such as hawk, coyote, chipmunk, etc. This is where I live and these are the spirits around me. There will obviously be overlap with native beliefs because well, the First People were here first. While cultural appropriation needs to brought to the attention of people who may be naive/ignorant and don't think about what they do I think it's organic and natural to use local/American plants for cleansing rituals. This has been done all over the world, in so many cultures, for thousands of years. It is part of our shared knowledge as humans. Just please don't wear a headdress unless you have a legitimate reason. My two cents, whatever it's worth.

It's awesome to visit this web page and reading the views of all mates on the topic of this piece of writing, while I am also zealous of getting experience.

I just made this smoothie and it tasted ah-mazing!! i added a hint of vanilla to make it a teensy bit sweeter and it was just the touch it needed for me. but it tasted really good w/o it too. I will definitely be making this often in the mornings, it's just so quick and easy

Post image for Why We Love The Poncho

The Poncho is an easy go-to during the winter months, a fun layer to add on top of your shirt, dress, and lightweight sweater. The Poncho throws me back to the 70’s when I used to admire Susan Dey on the sitcom The Partridge Family and watch the magical Stevie Nicks dance around playing sweet music. Read more »

I used to have a purple knit poncho I wore all the time. When I first bought it, it was too large for me and that was ok because it was so comfortable. Every time I washed it, it shrank a little bit more. After 8 years, it was just a little thing and I couldn't wear it any more. After looking at this page, I realize I need to buy another!
Jules -Mar 16, 2013, 1:35AM
I need a poncho now. Love all of these styles, look so warm and cozy!

Post image for Current Obsession: Suede Bohemia Hat

I’ve always been one to love a good hat.  Sometimes you just don’t feel like taking the time to fix your hair in the morning, and a hat is always a sure-fire way to cover it up and still look cute.  Read more »

Funny you posted this Julia...I have always worn slouchy hats/beanies too, I've never really tried to wear any type of wide brim hat but last weekend I purchased a black floppy wool one and I am addicted to it. I thought because of my curls the hat would not sit right on my head but I was so wrong. I could definitely see myself owning one in suede...hhhmmm. Have a great day!

Oh I love this! But I can't help thinking 'oh that's so not Amsterdam-ish style- this is the JANUARY catalog?! how fitting it's snowing here at the moment - they must have been so cold' Haha apparently that's typical Dutch neutral thinking ;) Love from snowy Amsterdam (ice skating people on the canals isn't really something fitting for the average Free People dress, is it? :)

I used coconut oil at first and it didn't pick up the color at all. This was disappointing because I hoped it would blend with my coffee infused coconut oil for a darker shade. I'm leaving the glycerine mix on my stove.for a while longer to achieve a deeper shade of red. I have Olive skin and would prefer a shade a touch darker than the one shown. I'm fighting the temptation to add some coffee grounds! I do wish I had some roller ball vials for this on the go!
