Personally, I have always had a sweet spot for Valentine’s Day themed merchandise and, in the past, have found creative ways to incorporate heart themed decor into multiple faucets. Admittedly, I had a subtly themed “XOXO”, hearts, and lips themed bathroom in my early 20’s. Obviously, I grew out of it!
These days, I pay more care to purchasing decisions with focus on eco-friendly, holistic, and practical choices. Still, a little of the fun of red, pink, and white can catch my eye. A few deals going on before the holiday include a Free 3-piece lip set with $75 purchase from 100% Pure cosmetics.
I’ve mentioned artisan made puravida bracelets in past posts. Don’t miss out on their Limited Edition Valentine’s Day Gem or any of their Pura Vida’s Charity Collection. Be sure to take advantage of $20 off a purchase of $75 OR $10 of $50 through February 28th AND always Free Shipping on orders $25 or more!
Finally, for a more subtle reflection of “love” consider supporting Thistle Farms which helps to employ 1,500+ women healing from prostitution, trafficking, and addiction. Their $25 Lavender Bouquet Gift Box could be the perfect (not to mention relaxing) alternative to cut flowers.

Naturally the start of a new year brings about thoughts about the future and perhaps a little planning. This year my planning brought about three core themes;
Live – perhaps my version of “walk the walk”. For me this is the continued practice of living healthful and conscientious while remaining most considerate of others.
Teach – part of my personal and professional goals are to always remain scientific and rely on this principle to develop tools that help others implement simple, action-oriented lifestyle solutions centered on their health and well-being.
Relish – in consideration of positive psychology, this concept may best be described as an intention. It is a great synthesizing term for taking in all the aspects daily life provides while finding the places to experience joy and gratefulness.
This year I had a little help to visualize my goals and objectives. Last year I had the fortune to meet the amazing team behind ALV Coaching. Representing a mission driven for-profit business, the talent behind ALV is certainly visionary embracing the meaning of Ama La Vida; “love life”. Be sure to check them out this year. Below is my Manifesto, a tool they implemented for 2017.
Don’t be afraid to kick a little “Scary Sunday” you know what…
