Simplicity Holistic Health + 3 Day Cleanse

I've noticed my 3 day cleanse was generating some curiosity on instagram so here we go, I'll tell you all about it! But first things first. I was introduced to Simplicity HH while working at Saks Fifth Avenue (they sell them at the Indy store, FYI). We had a tasting event along with a full introduction of the company by its owner Beth McCarthy Smith (the most cheery, energetic, joyful, positive and passionate person I've ever met, really!) and instantly felt in love with her story, her message and her desire for a healthier lifestyle. Not to mention the taste of the juices which are cold pressed to retain all the vitamins and antioxidants of the fruits and vegetables. Simplicity HH works with local farmers to support our community and all the juices are "Prayed upon &…

Fellowship Friday: Dressed for Success

I'd love to introduce you to someone I've recently connected with and I can tell you she's been inspiring me to no end. Talking to her on the phone was like talking to my best friend and we never even met! Sonia recently launched her inspirational lifestyle and fashion blog called Onyx & Faith. She is also a jewelry designer and hand-makes all of her jewelry with quality, love, and care (you can find all of her beautiful designs on her blog!). Sonia is married to the love of her life and a mother of the most precious little girl! And guess what?! She's been working as a 2nd grade teacher for the past 10 years (God sent, perhaps?!). But what I love about her however is how she empowers & encourages other women on her blog and…

Hope Supply

Good day gal pals! I'm so happy to share with you the Hope Supply box from Mi Esperanza !

Sole of Brasil

In a blogger's life you have to make choices everyday. Those choices can be something like spending time with family and friends or write a "quick" post, clean the house and cook or write a blog post, watch your favorite show or write a blog post, or even when to put yourself together and beg your peeps to take pics for a post. Other times you must make more important choices such as whether to pick up products to feature (partner with companies) or not. My blogging road has been a long one with a few awesome successes and some epic failures and guess what, I'm still trying to figure out my identity! Now a days I'm busy with my full time job and thanks to maturity and faith I've set my priorities to where I'm comfortable…

Emily’s Quest for a Simpler and more Natural Lifestyle

Happy Hump Day amigas!!! Today's post is written by a guest, my most "green, ethical, natural and sustainable" neighbor! Emily is a mom of three little ones and she's passionate about making our environment a better one for our future generations!

Making a Splash Pin Up Style + Giveaway!

Going through Fashion school I had a friend name Danisha, think of a bubbly little lady who giggled pretty much all throughout class and was always jamming to a popular song. That's Danisha, no wonder why I was automatically drawn to seat by her and obviously had endless belly laughs and more often than not it was hard to concentrate in some of the classes we had together. Long story short  Danisha partnered up with another classmate Krista and founded Poppy Seeds - fashions that pop! Danisha is the Owner and Head Designer and Krista was the Assistant Designer and Patternmaker for a while, as of now Danisha runs the company by herself. What I love about her bathing suit brand is the retro style, I feel like the market is saturated with either…

Do the Kind Thing

Hello my most dear friends, in the midst of the season of giving I'd like to share a story I've received the honor to be asked to feature. With Christmas just around the corner, I hope this will warm your hearts as it did mine. This is a special story of two boys, Jeremy and Nick whose projects were voted on the Do the KIND Thing Projects: Each month, KIND supports one project with $10,000. You can Create your project to Do The Kind Thing, or support amazing ideas with a kind act. If you are not familiar with the KIND bars, they are delicious and as they like to say a bar full of healthful tastiness (I love them) these guys believe that a company can do well while doing good and from that…
