Plant Organic Flowers: Save the Bees

Calling all buds! It's time to let the world know how they can help our beautiful earth...and the human race! As a patron of this wonderful company, I'm sure it's no news to you that pesticides have been affecting our bees. They have been disappearing and their colonies have been declining. This is not good, buds! One third of the food we eat depends on our precious bees. Bees and beekeepers could use lots of support right now.

This cute bee tee reads: Plant Organic Flowers

There are a multitude of things we can do. Buying organic food when possible to help support organic farming, which in turn can help the bees. Buying honey from your local beekeeper not only helps keep them going, but is also very good for your health. Planting organic flowers for bees to pollinate helps too! That is where this rad recycled fabric tee shirt comes in.

In true Soul-Flower fashion, the Plant Flowers Recycled T-Shirt is made with a blend of organic cotton and recycled fibers. It is so soft and comfortable, and the color pretty much goes with anything! I especially love it with a long skirt and Soul-Flower's cute strawberry earrings. The fun print will add the perfect touch to any summer outfit while also showing a positive message.

So, green thumb or not, get out there and start planting! It's a great way to get outside, have fun, and help the bees all at the same time. You might even run into a friendly gnome :)

Peace, Love & Planting,

How to Create a Henna Design

I love the Branches Recycled Maxi Skirt, the leaf deign is so gorgeous, seeing it reminded me of mehndi henna designs, and the long maxi length had me dreaming of barefoot summer days, running through the grass and sand.

The Branches Maxi Skirt that inspired my henna design!
My sister loves henna, she got me started on it years ago, I decided for this post I would go to a henna expert, and have her share her knowledge and experience in henna design. Here are a few quick tips she shared (check out the video for more info, and to see my henna design step by step (notice the soul-flower logo?!)

1. It is easier for beginners to start with a design in mind, you can draw something up, print it off, or even draw on your skin with a sharpie (the sharpie will fade). Look in books, online, or in nature for inspiration. (Soul-flower has a lot of cool designs on their clothing you could recreate with henna!)

2. Your design should sit for 30min- overnight, so be sure to put it somewhere where it wont can be left alone for a amount of time (for example I did my hand I write with, which wasn't the best idea)

3. After your design starts to dry you can paint over it with a mixture of lemon juice and sugar, this helps the design soak in , and stay wet longer, so it really soaks into your skin and last longer!

4. After the lemon juice you can warm the design with a candle, again to help the design soak into your skin and last long!

Thats basically it! Be sure to checkout the video! And thanks to my sister for sharing!! Let me know if you guys come up with some cool designs!

Get the Funk Tie-Dye Pants

The Funk, comes to you when you wear the Get the Funk Tie-Dye Pants. You can't help but dance and get your groove on.  The pants have a wonderfully three tiered ruffle happening at the bottoms, so even just walking around, they fly and flutter and make you want to jump and jive all over the place.  The fun they create isn't just in your own space either, its addictive and people say, "woah, sweet pants, let's dance!" and they are then given the Funk as well.  When I have them on I can't seem to stop myself from spinning and kicking and getting down right crazy.

"woah, sweet pants, let's dance!"

These tie-dye pants have ties at the top of the three tiered ruffles, so you can tighten the leg for fashion's sake, and to assist in keeping the pants up where they belong.  I actually discovered a cool way to tie it around my leg, which really aided in keeping the pants in place while I was Getting the Funk from them.

This is how I tie them
Besides looking awesome and being great pants to shake it in, they are also super comfortable. I found them to be great pants to do yoga in and I get my yoga funk on big time.  They have become my go to pants for late afternoon beach excursions.  The ocean will be blowing in a cool breeze from Funk Town and my Funky pants keep me from feeling the chill while I bust out a back bend.  I am free to be me in these Tie-Dye beauties, no one questions random dancing, karate kicks or just spinning down the side walk.  The Funk can't be denied by anyone when these pants are around.
