Happy Mother’s Day! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and a special day with the people they love! Whether it be friends, family, or by yourself – if that’s what makes you happy 😉 If you need another pick me up- I’ve linked below, some of our favorite shops who are having amazing sales this weekend!
We don’t usually get very personal here on the blog, but it just wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without us giving a little shout out to our Mom:
To the lady that taught us it’s ok to dream big, to leave the messy house for a fun adventure instead, don’t be afraid, try something new, that pizza is healthy- it has vegetables, coke can be a breakfast drink…and snack, mid snack, lunch, pre dinner, and dinner drink- but only if you drink it from a wine glass, you can run your first marathon in your 60’s, and to always be down for a good time- We say, thank you and we love you. Happy Mother’s Day.

When it comes to the holidays we are all thinking about the people on our Christmas list and what to give them; however, are we thinking about all of those people who are not able to check off their list of even basic needs? I have something you can do to help with your list and the lists of others.
I have raved about this new company many times before [here] and I’m going to do it again! For every evolve- love in action purchase you make, it includes a social giveback to one of their Love In Action Partners. These are non-profit organizations committed to social justice and the quest to end poverty. They are located in Thailand, South Africa and the United States. Each organization demonstrates core values that evolve, as well as Ash and I, stand behind: compassion, empowerment, wholeness, courage and creativity.
So, let’s say you have that running/workout pal who loves herself a good pair of leggings! Grab the Rupa or VaVa leggings or a great capri like the Dawn. If you purchased these you would not only be giving your friend an amazing Christmas gift, but also giving 2 days of school, 3 warm meals, and personal hygiene kits to someone in need! Complete the outfit with the Deb halter or Mryna tank and you’ll be giving a child 1 week to 1 month of school supplies! Let’s not forget a sports bra and give the gift of education to a child!
Then, let’s not forget about the men in our life! Evolve has just launched their new men’s line and I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek before they launched it, when they were here in Dallas. Let’s just say, my super picky husband love the line. Their shirts were so soft I wanted a set of sheets made out of them- and the shorts were finally a length, fit, and style I could get on board with for men’s work out shorts. There will be a couple packages under the tree for my man from this line.
The Mike tee is the incredibly soft, and amazing work out tee. Five minutes after a work out your man won’t even know he was sweating. It’s amazing. Plus, just by purchasing it, it provides 10 years of clean water to someone in need in an under-developed country! Then complete the outfit with the Eric short and you will be giving your man a complete outfit and also providing one hour of job skills training for a homeless youth in the US!
I love the founders behind this company and their passion for their vision. It shows every time I get to talk to and see them. “Evolve – love in action seeks to empower and inspire those who wear its clothes… to be their best selves and to be a part of something much bigger. Each piece is thoughtfully designed to make you feel beautiful from the inside out.”
So…. you’re sold, right!? Me too. I have been for awhile. Just when you think it can’t get better- they are giving all of our lovely friends 25% off the ENTIRE STORE through December to get your Christmas list checked off and to help better our world!
