The dresses are so beautiful and they go for the brides too. They are just appropriate for the wedding. I liked the Kristal’s limited edition dress the most. The work on it is really impressive. It is a very beautiful collection.

What’s the best piece of wedding advice you’ve ever received?

I eloped so there wasn't a ton of advice, but the worst thing someone told me was to expect to fight - a lot. Like, wtf man? Who wants to hear that? I can get warning people about petty arguments (like how clean a kitchen needs to be before bed), but this person meant damn near screaming matches. FWIW, that has NEVER happened and I've been married 4 years. If one of us is displeased by something, we do this magical thing called communicate. The best advice for relationships in general? Pee after sex, hah. I wish more girls knew this one earlier in life. UTIs are not fun.

Great post :) The weird thing is I wrote a similar one a few months ago. It's strange how similar we are in our thoughts as people. You can check my blog post about Love here: http://rougesprit.com/#!/details/fall-inlove-with-the-world

Great playlist! From any era! Mike Meyers of SNL fame said "if you lived in the suburbs during the '70's, someone automatically came to your door and brought you a copy of 'Rumors." Heaven knows I played the heck out of mine. Bought it again to have it on vinyl. (again) Cheers!

With a 9-5 job, it can be easy to get discouraged by the amount of hours left in the day when you’re not at work…

Your article is like it was written about my own life. I feel like the last 3 years of my life just look the same to me, the same routine... My routine is (although I'm trying to change it) almost the same as yours. I think I'm addicted to Netflix. I would watch an entire 5-10 seasons TV series in a month. I got so bad at doing laundry, that at one point I had 2 months worth of unwashed laundry to do (Luckily I've got lots of clothes so I never reused any dirty piece). It took me an entire week to wash it all (like I would wake up, wash 5 loads, store/iron the dried clothes, and suddenly it was nighttime again). Imagine having to wash 25 pairs of jeans, 35 sweatshirts/sweaters, you get the idea... It was awful. I felt my life being wasted just doing laundry and watching Netflix. Now, I'm avoiding Netflix like the plague and I do my laundry way more often. Still, I'm trying to do more productive things with my life.

Thank you for this! I've been feeling this way for weeks! It's good to feel like I'm not alone and other people are trying to figure out how to balance their lives better too!

This sounds fascinating. I usually like silence when I meditate so I wonder if the sounds would be helpful or distracting. Thanks for this.

The writer and the bowls are beautiful. Both create joyous noise. Hope to see more commentary on these New Agey experiences from Carlen

Erika saying that butter doesn't involve animal death is delusional. It's up there on same the ignorance level as people saying Uggs don't harm sheep because they are made of wool (which of course they aren't, they're made from shearling). Cows are mammals. Mammals need to give birth to produce milk. Cows are forcefully impregnated, babies taken away within hours if not minutes after birth, either killed immediately (often times just with hammer blows to the head, it's approved industry standard) or put in veal crates or little plastic huts where they are kept for weeks or months in solitude before they are sold for dog food or veal in the case of the males and surplus females. Other female calves are kept as replacements for their mothers who are shipped off to slaughter when then are "spent" by this relentless cycle at 4-6 years of age. Those are just the broad strokes, why don't you educate yourself on de-horning, tail docking, living on cement floors most of if not your whole life with no hoof or other vet care etc etc. An animal product being labeled "grass fed" only means they got to go outside for some of the time. All the other horrors still apply in varying degrees. That a woman like Katie who has herself labelled a yogi and "spiritual mama" would actively promote such wanton abuse of, and disregard for, mothers and their babies is incomprehensible and shows how self promotional labels are just that. It has nothing to do with actual character or how you move through this world. Namaste.

Butter is amazing. Bread and butter, cooking with butter, yummy.

Hey Katrina! Thank you for pointing that out! This is just one perspective and one component of many modalities that can support healing from trauma or challenging events. I am simply sharing some pieces that have helped me heal from trauma and have included my perspective on what trauma can be. I appreciate your insight! The more awareness around all of the different tools that are available that can support healing the better! Love and light!
Katrina -May 14, 2016, 7:27AM
This is not how trauma is defined and one of the main faults in the current research. Current studies lack rigor because trauma was not specifically defined and covered too wide a girth. While there are many health and social emotional benefits to components of yoga, it's vital to mention that even the sources provided express this research to be preliminary though positive. Most importantly, yoga for trauma only has this preliminary backing as an adjunct to soundly established mental health treatments.
