Friday Favorites

I might be in Hawaii (I know, I know, it's a rough life, but somebody's gotta live it ;)), but I still wanted to share a few of the things I'm loving lately - because you may love 'em too! Without further ado, let's get into my list so I can get to the beach!

Lend Life

If you've been around these parts for a while (or follow me on Instagram), you've probably noticed my love for Unlock HopeUnlock Hope was started with the simple goal of providing 30 refugee girls in Uganda with equal access to education. Proceeds from their sales (I loved their t-shirts and probably have about 15 of them in my closet) went to help with this mission. Well, six years later they have morphed their business model into something even bigger - Lend Life.

First, they take comfy tees made of US grown organic cotton, recycled water bottles, and sustainably grown beech trees and are sewn at a fair trade facility in Haiti where employees make 4 times the average local wage. Next, they add art that inspires and challenges while reflecting your views and values. Once they've been sold, they take 33% of profits and loan (and re-loan!) money to entrepreneurs around the world through bringing dreams and passions to life. One purchase of a shirt will leave a lasting impact on the planet and improve the lives of countless people for years to come!

Brooks Runversations

I shared the first Brooks Runversation (with Des Linden) and recently Brooks released their second episode - with Gabe Grunewald. If you're a runner, I'm sure you know the best way to learn about your running friends is by putting in some miles together. I love hearing these AMAZING runners chat about real and relevant topics (it's like we are becoming best friends... yet they know absolutely nothing about me and wouldn't be able to pick me out of a line-up ;)).

QALO's Companion Collection

You know I LOVE my QALO rings (I think I have 10-15 different ones, all in different colors) and I am STOKED to see they just released silicone dog ID tags. Unlike traditional tags, QALO silicone dog badges are quiet, scratch resistant and feature unique, double-sided designs. With 11 distinct designs to choose from, showcase your dog's personality with an identification tag that fits their lifestyle. (They also released a few dog beds!) Now to decide which one Walt needs.

What are you loving lately?
