Post image for Color Inspiration: Seeing Red

We are seeing red this week, in a good way! Items in this color are catching our eyes. From dresses, blouses, lingerie, and even cute little socks. Red has more personal associations than any other color, it draws attention, increases energy, encourages confidence, it’s also the highest arc in the rainbow. Did you know that bees can’t see red!?

Studies show that humans find the color red to be most attractive.

My name is Randi, I am a nineteen year old warm blooded California girl who has entered her second year in college, and realized she is in the complete wrong major. I am in the process of deciding which major to switch to, (it's a tossup between English or Journalism), but I need advice. I have an idea of what I want the future of my career to look like. I love to write, I love fashion, and I love exploring new and creative facets of my right brain. My question is this, what, if any definitive path, would you suggest for me to be a part of a brand team like Free People. FP is my go-to clothing line, and my inspiration for more than just trends in fashion. FP has a lot of underlying vigor outside the seams of the garments it creates. I want to be a part of creating that inspiration. I believe working for a brand like Free People would be an amazing stepping stone to a future in the field of fashion journalism. Ultimately, working for a magazine would be the end goal I would have in mind, but being in touch with ones truest self and experiencing new things is what life is all about, right? I think working on the vision team, blogging for the website, helping create the vision board for upcoming catalogs, seeing what’s a trending, photographing real life individual, places, things in nature to gain inspiration, etc. I would love to do all of that, I am just stuck. I don't know which direction will be most beneficial to me. What employers at places such as Free People will be looking for, and what is expected from the teams of people who are already working there? What will they need from me, in order for my addition to the "family" be a success? I understand this is a long and lengthy email, and I'm sure this is not the only message dinging in your inbox for the whole day. But, if there is any empathy to be felt, a spark of knowledge to be shared, or a simple sentence for guidance; anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to whoever is reading my exasperating stream of consciousness, if you have even allowed your eyes to reach the bottom of this email. The time taken is nevertheless appreciated. I tried to send this to the email under "contact" but it wouldn't send, so I opted for the comment route on a blog post. Best Regards, Randi L. San Luis Obispo, CA

Post image for Seasonal Shopping List: Fruits & Veggies For February!

This shopping list comes to us from Kelsi Windmiller.

February is a tricky month for fresh local fruits and vegetables. Luckily, there will be newly in-season produce coming in from the warmer states. Keep your eyes out for some fresh berries! Otherwise, try to make the most out of what is in season all year ’round. Read more »

Fantastic~! Thanks
Margaret -Feb 16, 2013, 1:22AM
Great list! For this time of year, you will want to consider vegetables that grow well in cool temperatures that can be grown locally - crucifers (like broccoli, kale, and cabbage), Swiss chard, radishes, green onions, carrots and beets), and vegetables that are in season in warmer climates - like citrus! Of course, every vegetables is in season somewhere, but the most quality vegetables come from not too far away!

The Express Web site, previously is giving 50% off. The promo codes that have been supposed for being valid until mid-night have gone away. The 50% off is being honored once you put items in your buying bag. I just place mine there to be ready and low and behold, the price tag dropped 50%.

Post image for Acupuncture Diary, Week 5: Chinese Herbs

Last week I ran out of the Chinese herbs that I had been taking three times a day. Instead of getting a new bottle, my acupuncturist Jenny thought we would try something new. She customized an herbal formula for me that’s made of 13 different Chinese herbs. Read more »

Acupuncture originated in China over 2000 years ago. The news spread forbidden city like fire. It is a serious case of connective tissue being wrapped around the country to another. Professor Damien Walmsley, of course, and stimulating these points with simulated needles. As a direct impact on performance. Ok, so your pet if other methods. 54in China's Xie Qiuping claims the world's southernmost city, Raul has numbness on one or two.

I have tried some very bitter herbal formulas! Not many people know about alternative medicinals to just popping a pharmaceutical, so I love that you are sharing your journey with the world. And if anybody in LA is interested in trying out Acupuncture or Herbal Medicine, please come see me for a treatment. : ) www.SeedofLifeAcupuncture.com

Post image for Book Club Meeting: The Power Of Now

Chapter 3 of The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle is titled “Moving deeply into the Now.” In it, Tolle goes into further detail about the importance of the Now and how to remain present.  As much as I’ve found the book incredibly enlightening so far, I’ll admit that I still didn’t feel that moment of being purely present that he keeps talking about – until now.  I don’t know if it was this latest chapter that helped me or reading the book overall but it was a wonderful moment – I’ll explain how it happened below :).

great publish, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector do not notice this. You should proceed your writing. I am sure, you have a great readers' base already!
Jules -Mar 24, 2013, 9:29PM
Yes I need to get this book! I loved your last paragraph, I felt the present while reading it. I felt like I was mediating even though my surroundings are not exactly calm and peaceful at the moment. Cancer is my moon sign and we struggle with being in the now, all the time. I need to keep these words in mind a lot more often. http://bohobrain.wordpress.com/

Post image for Poll: FP Movement

This week our homepage trend is showcasing FP Movement. Our new workout clothing is full of special details, unique shapes, and punchy colors and prints. It’s a new year and a time when people are starting to work out, maybe due to a New Year’s resolution or just because they want to start a new year fresh with a clear mind. I know many of us here at Free People are doing this, whether it’s yoga, running, or other fun activities that involves fitness. Read more »

Jaclyn -Jan 27, 2014, 8:04PM
It's probably a little late to comment, but will FP Movement ever be releasing any pieces made out of performance fabric?? I was so excited when this line came out, but was very disappointed when I discovered its all made out of cotton. I practice ashtanga yoga & I run - basically I'm a "sweaty betty" and cotton is only good for casual & lounge clothing for me as I dont much like the feeling of being wet, cold & soggy :0/ but I am hoping that FP will one day come out with real activewear. Any plans for this :) ??
Allison -Jan 31, 2013, 12:12PM
I love look three! It's so simple, but it has that pop of color, and detail, that just kicks it up a notch. :)

Post image for Cute Getaway Sandals

We love the feeling that sandals bring to us, the freedom to wiggle your toes in the open air, the warmth of the sun shining down on them and the coolness that rain drops bring during sun showers. They are easy to pack in your suitcase if you’re heading away on vacation and they go with almost every single outfit. They are easy and free. Read more »

My favorite sandals from Free People right now are the Pandora Sandal and the Alex Sandal! I can't wait to get my hands on both. You can't have too many sandals!! xoxo Sara Sararash.wordpress.com
Morgan Beltz -Jan 30, 2013, 9:16AM
Heehee your sandals get me in trouble :) The last part time job I had I blew my first pay check on a pair of Jeffrey Campbells from your website! So worth it though theyre my favorites in my closet

Post image for Photo Tour: Finding Calm & Inspiration At A Yoga Studio

Those who practice yoga know that, while regular practice will help to strengthen and lengthen your body tremendously, the physical component is just a fraction of what it’s all about. Yoga is a mental and spiritual practice, and in order to truly feel that connection, it seems that it is best when practiced in a calming environment; an environment that reminds you of where you came from – one that feels like nature.
