If your closet is overflowing but you have “nothing to wear,” it’s time to get rid of some clothes. You know what I’m talking about–the jeans that don’t fit, the shirt with the weird stain, and that one sweater you never wear. Our Closet Purge Flow Chart will help you determine which items are destined for the donation bin, so you’ll have more space for new shopping adventures.
In the height (and heat) of summer there is perhaps no better sweet treat to cool down with than an ice cream sandwich. At once chewy and creamy, there’s a reason why this summer staple is enjoyed by both young and old! However, the store-bought kind can contain some not-so-healthy ingredients. So, in honor of National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, I’ve created a homemade version of this seasonal indulgence that’s as delicious as it is nutritious – no ice cream maker needed! Made with cashews and bananas and sweetened only with fruit and a bit of maple syrup, this recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free.
Did you know that swimming is one of the best exercises you can do to get in tip top shape, burn calories, increase flexibility, boost your metabolism and tone up? Well it is, and with this easy 20 minute lap workout you can burn off close to 300 calories. Oh and did I mention you get to soak in the sun & work on that much needed tan you’ve been wanting all summer long!? What are you waiting for, slip into your swim suit and get ready to make a splash!
When gifting flowers, there are no specific rules of thumb. In fact, many people make up their own meanings behind the blooms they choose, as a single stem may remind them of a special event or beautiful moment in their life. And, while flowers are an always-thoughtful gift, it makes the gift giving (and receiving!) experience a little more personal when there’s a little significance behind your choice of blooms. So, whether you’re trying to sweeten up your next summer soiree, add a pop of pretty to a clutter-filled workspace, or gift your BFF with something spectacular, it’s always fun to get the down-low on the meanings behind summer’s sweetest flowers. And, thanks to LA’s urban botanicals, we did just that. Enjoy!
