The YOGO eco origami yoga mat 2.0 version now comes with a handle! It folds up to a super-portable size and its attached straps form a handle and can also be used to hang and dry the mat. It’s made of durable natural rubber, with a cotton mesh inside that keeps it from stretching. It stays clean because the bottom doesn’t roll onto the top.
And, YOGO now gives one Food Tree per mat plus sustainable agriculture training to poor families in developing countries. Plus, you can buy a tree for $1 in their store. Just like that you can add a tree to your cart during check out. Love this.
Bummer that the grey one is already sold out.

I used to love live model drawing at university. Frédéric Forest’s Instagram feed makes me want to pick it back up.
“… Because, while we’re each unique, we have far more in common than we’re comfortable admitting. Amplifying our differences may make us feel special, but it’s not particularly useful when it comes to getting better.
Being unique is a great way to hide from the change we need when someone offers us a better future. Learning from the patterns and the people who have come before, though, is the only way any of us advance.”
Uniquely unique, by Seth Godin

My studiomates Gabriel Whaley and Dakota Williams just launched Late Night Snap Hacks, a website that allows you to trick your friends into thinking you’re out and about partying. Visit the site, pick a setting (concert, walking the streets, nightclub etc) and then Snapchat the scene. Hilarious!

“Most of the things that we do have two possible outcomes: they might work or they might not. Being able to live with the possibility of either is essential if we’re going to move forward.”

Scale Denim aims to make jeans with different inseam and waist sizes. So no matter how tall or short you are, you will have a pair of jean that perfectly fit your body through the waist, thigh, knee, and calf. As a tall woman, I endorse this idea. But, oh wait, currently only available for men. Ops! Ok then guys, support the Kickstarter and help get this idea off the ground.

I recently started keeping a list of things I didn’t buy. I look back at it often and it fills me with all the good feels. The list reminds me that many of the things I think I NEED TO HAVE would end up very quickly just becoming STUFF. Marie Kondo’s approach, by simply asking “does this bring me joy” has changed the way I look at anything I own. But best of all, my “I didnt’ buy this list” is a great reminder of money I saved.
For the last two months I have been wearing this “watch” and it has quickly become my favorite accessory. As someone who constantly worries about what’s ahead, it’s been a successful way for me to remind myself to stay in the moment! And, the personal reminder on the back of the watch, which is customizable, reminds me be kind to myself.
The Great Animal Orchestra is inspired by the work of American musician and bioacoustician Bernie Krause. The exhibition, which brings together artists from all over the world, invites its audience to immerse themselves in an aesthetic meditation, both aural and visual, on an animal kingdom that is increasingly under threat. Put on headphones and dive in. Soothing!
This is a game designed to sharpen our sense of what we should be looking for in love. It comprises a number of cards which describe some leading habits and character traits in people, inviting us to reflect on what truly matters to us and what we could endure, if we had to. Curious about this. Ordering.
