Bloom Into Your Full Potential with the Magic of Flowers

We have all experienced the joy and pleasures that flowers can bring into our lives, but we are far mor interconnected then we think. In the new book: Flowerevolution: Blooming into Your Full Potential with the Magic of Flowers by flower alchemist, Katie Hess (of Lotus Wei) and award-winning filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, we learn just how influential flowers and plants can be, and how they can make us feel happier, less stressed and more in tune.

“When we’re in nature, we move toward what elicits our best qualities. When we need a boost of confidence, joy, courage, or love, we’re attracted to those flowers that evoke those qualities within us. After spending time around trees and flowers, we actually feel different; we can feel all kinds of positive qualities rising up within us. Those qualities are already within us, but it’s being in nature that wakes up those feelings inside us and remind us—with a visceral experience—of who we are.” ~ Katie Hess, Author + Flower Alchemist

Meet My New Best Friend – The Pranamat Eco

In a non-beauty related review, lets talk back pain! There is a funny thing that happens once you hit your thirties and that is the very noticeable presence of aches and pains. I truly feel like I went from 29 to 80. With the addition of a slipped disk, chronic pain and fibromyalgia, my back is one area that gives me a ton of trouble. Simply sitting at my desk, standing for too long, and lifting anything over 20 pounds could potentially cause the onset of pain. When Pranamat Eco* reached out to see if I would like to try one of their massage mats, I was totally game!
