PicMonkey Collage

I did something this March Madness season I have never done before. I entered a local bracket. Well, I had Villanova going to finals and they lost Round 2 so that has my bracket a bit messy now. My local team is Gonzaga but I had them playing Villanova in Final Four and losing but like I said my bracket is a mess and that is not a team up option. Gonzaga is headed to the Sweet 16 and play Thursday so still hoping they advance again. How is your bracket looking? If it is a mess like mine then I’ll help give you something to feel good about.

Good Health has some new snacks from Organic Tortilla Chips with Black Bean and Rice to Eat Your Veggies variety chips. Whichever variety of ‘feel good’ chips you decide to snack on during March Madness, it’a all bout how you dunk your chips. I like buying salsa then adding in some more ingredients to it like corn and extra seasonings to jazz it up.

GH chip

Good Health snacks use real ingredients like avocado an olive oils, whole grains, sweet potatoes and extra goodness of tomatoes, spinach, beets, broccoli and carrots. Good Health has chips. pretzels, popcorn and more.
How do you dunk your chips?

Organic and Sustainable Clothing You Can Wear Anywhere – prAna


Did you know that you can buy clothing that is responsible? What does that mean? It means that from the very start of the process the cottons, hemps and other materials used to make your clothing is not making a negative impact on the environment as it is processed. From cotton that has not been sprayed with pesticides to Farmers treated fairly and paid a fair wage for their farming skills you get clothing that is organic and sustainable. This is why I love my prAna Organic Clothing.

I needed new clothing because I was not happy with the performance of some of mine that wasn’t working for me as being versatile. After my research I found that the best clothing for me was organically made. It feels like a responsibility I wanted to take and by watching the video below you may see why…

What am I Wearing?

Cleo T-Shirt – Color: Mood Indigo. This is such a lightweight material and is a fitted tee. It is a burnout wash jersey knit style top that allows me to look fun and casual wherever I go. I wear this to work and running errands as well as my son’s sports practices. Not to mention, I wore this on a date night with my husband recently under a thin sweater.

 Lizbeth Capris – Color: Coal. I love that these are both pleated and tapered. It really gives it a great look that allows these pants to be worn casually or out on the town under a stunning top. It is a blend of soft hemp and recycled materials that has a bit of stretch in the pant. These are so comfortable and these are my new go-to pants.

prAna Organic

Sustainability matters and is truly responsible. To own just a few pieces will not be a regrettable decision. The comfortable and lightweight material is unlike any other clothing I own. You have to feel the difference to believe it. You deserve to feel comfortable anywhere you go an prAna works responsibly to bring you that. See all of the great items at prAna.
