FEMME FRIDAY // Lacy Philips of Free + Native

Another social media connection turned friend in real life is Lacy Phillips. I first met Lacy when she featured me on Free + Native back in the early days of her beautiful and uber successful site. Although wellness blogs were most definitely a thing when she came around - Lacy truly defined a style within the movement.

FEMME FRIDAY // Dani Kenney

Now is most definitely the time to celebrate all things female.

We believe that the real power of a woman comes from her deep seeded security. When a woman feels good in her own skin, and feels confident in her place in the world, she can do all matters of greatness. Her strength is insurmountable.

This core foundational security can only come from within - and we, even the most secure of us - have been conditioned to doubt it. Never quite enough. Never quite skinny enough, pretty enough, accomplished enough. We aren't complaining - it's just fact. No matter how self...

“If you nourished your sexual life with all the excitements and adventures which love injects into sensuality, you would be the most potent man in the world. The source of sexual power is curiosity, passion. You are watching its little flame die of asphyxiation. Sex does not thrive on monotony. Without feeling, inventions, moods, no surprises in bed. Sex must be mixed with tears, laughter, words, promises, scenes, jealousy, envy, all the spices of fear, foreign travel, new faces, novels, stories, dreams, fantasies, music, dancing, opium, wine. How much do you lose by this periscope at the tip of...


SOME LIKE IT COLD // Why cold showers are the best thing ever.

SOME LIKE IT COLD // Why cold showers are the best thing ever.

There isn’t anyone out there who will tell you they don’t like a warm bath or shower. Getting clean and warm feels really amazing.

But taking really long hot showers aren’t necessarily all they are cracked up to be, especially if you aren’t using a proper shower filter. Hot water is very drying, can be harsh on your skin and can contribute to inflammatory skin issues.

Hot showers are also relaxing (versus energizing or invigorating).

So what if we told you that waking up to a cold shower might be the new best way to start your day?
