Mindful Choices… in Clothing, Exercise, and Life

Being mindful for a woman with a busy lifestyle can be challenging.   This is especially true for us moms!  There are so many demands on our time and attention.  But that’s why it’s even more important. "Being mindful" means being present.  Being attentive.  Being aware.  Any time we make deliberate and mindful choices, it contributes in a positive way to our life, and inspires good feelings. Mindful Choices.... like taking a day off work to join your child’s school field trip. Mindful Choices.... like carving out time for yourself to get in some “Me-Time” Exercise.

Fall Haiku Bags & Discount Code!

Haiku Bags are totally up this outdoorsy chic girl's alley. I love the practical styles, trendy nature-inspired designs, well thought out details, and eco-friendly materials used in construction.  They offer an awesome range of shapes and sizes. I've been privileged to review a few of their styles, and have personally purchased even more.  These great bags fit in perfectly with my lifestyle! I own (and adore) everything from a small sized wallet/clutch that I bring to work in my backpack every  day, to a giant catch-all tote that I use for camping and on most of our outdoor family adventure days. The Fall Haiku Bags are now available, and feature some gorgeous fresh colors.  Each season they offer a new print fabric, and the bluish gray and berry hued "River Floral" print for this Fall is lovely.  Here are some of my favorite Haiku Bags this season.

Aventura Clothing Fall Favorites & Discount Code

Because I'm an Aventura Ambassador, you may have heard me talk about this eco-friendly brand, or seen some photos I've posted of myself in their outdoorsy chic styles.  Aventura is a small, family owned clothing brand that use green initiatives in their business practices.  I love the fabrics they use, such as organic cotton, recycled polyester, and modal (my favorite - so soft!).  I have become a loyal fan of their quality and fabulously cute clothes. Being an Ambassador allows me to select three outfits from the Fall 2015 season.  Then I proceed to order a bunch more on my own.  Because I'm addicted.  But that's another story.  Suffice it to say, I get a nice overview of the entire line and am happy to share my Aventura Clothing Fall Favorites with you. Aventura Clothing Fall Favorites ~ Ambassador Picks Let's start with a great jacket.  There are many foxy options to choose from this season on Aventura's site, but I think the one with the most character and distinct design … [Read more...]
