New Years

Friday, December 30, 2016

 
Everyone, have a safe, happy and fun new years! See you in 2017!
I use to always get anxious on New Years because I felt like I have to make it this big thing...but over the last few years, I've realized that its almost better when something spontaneously comes together and its most important that you're just around the people you care about and who care about you. xx

What am I doing?

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Image by me from a Maurizio Cattelan exhibit which reminds me of me when I actually write a blog post.

Who knows. 80% of the time I have no idea what I'm doing. But here's the things I've been doing that I do know:

+ Yoga on my mat made of recycled wetsuits. Is yoga super popular now? Has it always been super popular? What made me start? I have no clue. I just did one day. And I haven't stopped yet and now I can do a headstand! 

+ Reading Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance - a memoir about a family and culture in crisis - making sense of America..deemed as "profoundly important" (agree), "essential reading" (agree), "riveting" agree. Vance takes you in to a part of America you think you understand and shows you how little you truly understand. 

+ Learning Deutsch (finally) with Herr Professor - lessons via skype. I couldn't recommend him more! 

+  Listening to Groove Armada's Black Lights album from 2012 and loving the 80's fun feel of it. And did you see Sing Street yet? 

+ Staying home as much as I can so that I can be within viewing distance of my real Christmas Tree.

+ Enjoying the instagram account for Season Evans - a quilter with the most skills. Her creations are beautiful.

+ Still pondering "Not Afraid of Love", an exhibit that I just saw in Paris by Maurizio Cattelan (image above) at the Monnaie de Paris. He's known for his satirical sculptures and was one of the most interesting exhibits I've ever seen. I can't begin to describe it. Please fly to Paris, see that and then maybe the eiffel tower or something. 

+ Feeling funny because my blog/instagram was featured in an article about swiss influencers where they discuss people buying Instagram followers. megalolz. I didn't know this was a discussion out there, but its interesting anyway. My Insta is more personal and not really for my blog - but I love all of you who I'm connected with there! (thanks for pointing that out Dimitri!)

What are you doing? 

The story of a Recycled Wetsuit Yoga Mat

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

You guyyyys, I actually partnered with a company to like...actually review something. I don't know what got in to me, but when I looked at the website I couldn't really resist, and so I did it. Are we still friends? I DIDN'T SELL OUT!

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.

The end.

P.S. Thank you Uncommon Goods!!!!
