THINGS I READ // WROTE ::

-Molly Sims on Body Image. 

Comfortable shoes. 

Omg. Whole Foods. $$$ 

-Loved this article from Sakara Life! especially this line::
“Those extra 5-10 pounds, that place where your body naturally wants to be – that’s your life. That’s your late night pizza with your man, that Sunday morning bottomless brunch, your favorite cupcake in the whole entire world because you wanted to treat yourself. Those 5-10 pounds are your favorite memories, your unforgettable trips, your celebrations of life.”

-Loved this super feminist blog post about the holidays. So much good stuff in here. Eye-opening. For instance this line is so good::
“the concept of food being connected to morality remains: we judge people as good when they eat salad and yogurt and chia seeds, and bad when they eat donuts and burgers. We turn this inward on ourselves too. And we don’t have to. Instead we can adopt the belief that we are just inherently good, that we never need to be perfectionisty about anything, and that health and eating are not connected to morality.”

-I wrote this last year about the holidays but it is still very true this year.

TO LISTEN // WATCH::

-Amy Schumer on Body Image & style please watch!

I love both of them so much & this video was so fun! 

Best most important TED talk I’ve seen.

11906269_110607259307034_944634875_n-So I heard on Alanis Morissette’s new podcast (yes she has one, listen here) about this communication style and I’m going to try to adapt it as much as I remember to in my life. This post outlines the steps.

-Loved this story about COLOR. Listen to it. Fascinating!

-I loved this episode of This American Life this week especially the first act about the high school girls.

-Last week’s episode of Katie Wonders in case you missed it!

TO EAT::

-Dying to make these brownies they happen to be sugar and gluten free too.

-The dip I’m dying to dip into. Creamy spinach and avocado dip.

-This recipe isn’t actually to eat it’s to smell but it look awesome.

TO TRY // EXPLORE ::

-I love baths and this one is my new obsession thanks to Kris Carr.

New social media where you can only post one super good link per day. I’m into it.

-Look at this pretty jewelry line. They’re giving us a donation to a charity with every purchase we make using this code::  “WellnessWonderland

-How cute is this pin?

-Um I need this how clever is this mermaid blanket?
