Namaste-ing into National Women's Health Week

Happy National Women's Health Week!!! “The week serves as a reminder for women to make their health a priority and build positive health habits for life. The 20th annual National Women's Health Week kicks off on Mother's Day, May 12, and is celebrated through May 18, 2019.”  As promised, we're re-focusing on lessening the chaos in our lives and re-upping all the healthy things we can do to help make that happen -- and one thing that's been a huge assist for me in that area has been YOGA!

This month we’ve talked a lot about how we can all make more sustainable purchases, and a lot of that focused on buying things that have already been loved (ie buying second-hand). You know that is our favorite way to shop at ASOME, but the reality is, we don’t all, always, purchase second-hand. But another reality is that we want sustainable options when we do buy new, and the market is hearing that loud and clear, see ⬇ Fast Fashion ✔Zara: 90% of their stores are eco-friendly & have clothing donation sites; they use renewable resources to power their offices; their...

🌎 Day with Fischer Studio ! ! !

Happy Earth Day! This month we've been talking about sustainability, so we're wrapping it up with a person that's a top go-to of mine for all things sustainable: Fischer Studio owner, Lori Lawler. If you don't know Lori, you should, because she's a bad babe + sustainability queen. Lori and I sat down to chat about her life, her studio, all things sustainable and do a little shopping - captured by one and only Lauren Donovan! Check it out here!  Making her way back to Iowa, after LA-ing it up as an apparel designer, Lori opened Fischer Studio in Mainframe Studios to bring a little LA back to Iowa. Fischer Studio houses brands and one-of-kind items that have to meet Lori’s...
