Post image for Earth Quarterly

I just recently discovered Earth Quarterly and felt that today being Earth Day, now would be a good time to share it with you! I love their mission: We are on the cusp of a cultural awakening and Earth Quarterly intends to document it. Earth aims to connect with this generation’s cultural leaders – it’s free-thinkers, artists, back-to-the-landers, activists, mystics, poets – and to hear their stories. Read More

That artwork and photography is absolutely phenomenal. It all seems so beautiful, but with the slightest eerie. I think it's the surreal nature; the deer & human, the perfect circle around the girl's body, etc, etc. I love the idea that it communicates important issues on a practical level while adding a touch of mysticism and fantasy. What a wonderful way to employ the imagination for a better cause. Thank you for this! -Gabrielle

Post image for All About Almonds

Almonds are cholesterol free and rich in vitamin E, protein, and magnesium. Not only are they great for you, but they are also versatile, and delicious in their many forms. You’ve probably bought almond milk, almond butter, and almond meal at the grocery store many times if you enjoy eating clean, healthy, vegan food.Read More

Can you use already roasted and salted almonds for almond butter? I use Whole Foods almonds.

If you're serious about making almond milk, I would highly recommend investing in an actual almond milk making machine. I found a used one for $50 and it works like a charm. Everything is stainless steel, so I expect it to last quite a while. My first attempt at making almond milk in my vitamix and straining it with cheesecloth was dispiriting and messy. It was not something I looked forward to and it quickly fell out of my routine. I've had the almond milk maker for several months and have made a habit out of using it to make delicious almond milk. It's quick, clean-up is easy and I'm making milk more consistently!

My favorite look is actually the first, unnumbered one. In the spring and summer I love lounging around the house in my bra, panties and a cardigan; especially with a cup of coffee or tea! Even though I don't have a perfect body like these beautiful models, I never feel quite as beautiful or sexy as I do when I am lounging in my underwear. All of these looks are great and hope everyone gets to feel the boost that lounging in your underwear brings!

I'm torn between look 1 & look 4! i love the guitar and comfortableness of just throwing one's self across the bed, but also love sitting on counters... and the styles being displayed in both! I do both of those things, and would wear all of those peices.... and am not good at choosing...

Post image for Guest Post: Record Store Day

In honor of Record Store Day today we have a guest post from one of our home office music fanatics, Cheryl – who also writes her own music blog, My Life in Sound!

Besides the forth of July, today is my favorite day of the year. Why? Because it’s Record Store Day! Every year, this major holiday for music fans occurs in April so we can show appreciation for our local record stores, all while getting our hands on exclusive vinyl from our favorite artists.Read More

I love old vinyls, its the way music was meant to be played. Sit and relax or rock out to the classics. Got a great deal on a new but old looking record player last week. If your in the market for a new player, check out

As part of my job, I spend a lot of time surfing around the web seeking inspiration. I have folders that are full of images I’ve right-clicked and saved, and sometimes they start to get buried and I forget about them.Read More

Post image for Saturday DO

DO: verbalize it

I recently found myself in conversation, taking a stand for something that matters to me. I voiced how important it was for me that I say something. “I wouldn’t expect anything less,” said the other participant. And you know what? That’s something that I like about myself. When I think something, when I truly want something or feel a certain way – I don’t keep it a mystery, I say it. Read More

Like Annie, I stood up for myself recently. Not only was it for myself, but for at least 8 others who, like myself, kept silent in hopes that things would get better . After what felt like a violent barage of insult and attack from a professional/mentor figure, I couldn't take it anymore and "lashed" back. This friendship/mentorship is ruined with this person, but I am trying to recover and repair that while still maintaining my stanceagainst the maltreatment from this person onto myself and my peers/colleagues. Speaking out against wrong doing is difficult but repressing it or turning a cheek is disastrous. I consider myself in strength-training.
