Uncommon Goods wrote to me and he was all nice and I was all like OK? I think they even spelled my name correctly. And I got to pick whatever I wanted!
I said yes because I checked out the website (and xmas is coming and my birthday) and they had cool things like gifts that get personal like family mugs (amazing). And its Xmas time and I was like "I could get a Christmas present" but then I got something for myself anyway (which happens everytime I go Christmas shopping).
But I really like them - they are all about the popular key words that should be important to all of us...sustainability, supporting artisans, evolution, etc. Each product seems to have a story but I finally chose one because I'm a hippy now and all in to yoga. So I chose the Recycled Wetsuits Yoga Mat a. because its pretty b. because I've needed a yoga mat for like a year and I didn't want a bright pink one which is all I can find. c. its recycled which sounds good and d. Its really pretty.
And I love it. So there's that. I've been using it for about a month and it makes me happy. Its a little on the heavy side but I've never carried another yoga mat so is that normal? And I actually don't have to carry this ever so its fine.
P.S. Thank you Uncommon Goods!!!!
