What’d you get up to this week, friends? I helped a friend celebrate her birthday, took Loretta on a few dog play dates, took part in Dine Out For Somolia and attended a brunch + clothing swap. Busy! Lovely!
Also! Since Earth Day is April 22nd, every single sponsor in my sidebar produces or sells ethical fashion or beauty products. I’m so excited to get to know these brands better and introduce you guys to them!
Awesome things from a few of this month’s sponsors
Did you know that 100% Pure products are 100% natural and 100% cruelty-free, all products are completely, 100% free of artificial colors, artificial fragrances, synthetic chemical preservatives and all other toxins? Also: I love this lip color and doesn’t this blood orange body butter look amazing?
Nisolo leather goods are a) gorgeous b) support fair wages, benefits, safe working conditions, and local artisans. These sandals would be perfect for summer and this bag is on my ‘if I’m ever rich’ shopping list.
How was your week, guys? I took a friend out for a birthday pedicure, watched some live classic rock with my parents AND stepsons (I guess Foghat spans generations?), and engaged in some April Fool’s tomfoolery with this and this Not as part of the same prank, though.
How was your week, guys? I spent Monday and Tuesday roadtripping my way back from Kansas City, with stops at the American Gothic house, Maharishi Vedic City, and The World’s Smallest Church. So fun! You can see a few travel photos here and get my roadtrip checklist here.
How was your week, guys? I popped into the Healers podcast (episode forthcoming!), hosted my mom for a night on her way down to Florida, and as you read this I’m in Kansas City on a week-long road trip to visit a friend and cross a few things off my New Things List.
On my way back to Minnesota, I’m spending the night in Maharishi Vedic City, IOWA (!!!) a planned community based on “a system of building called Maharishi Sthapatya Veda design architecture. This ancient Indian system of architecture and city planning is said to promote happiness, peace and prosperity for its occupants.” You can follow along on Instagram to see how that goes 😉
