giveaway: ‘Lulu DK’ Beachy Boho Tattoo Jewlery

Two weeks ago a work commitment saw me jetting out of my beloved Bali and spending a week at a travel retail convention in Singapore’s glamorous Marina Bay Sands. It was quite an adjustment to switch from breezy island gal to professional business lady: swapping flip flops for shoes and straight-drying my hair- I felt a little like Superman putting his spectacles back on and becoming Clark Kent again. But that’s not to say that I had a boring week. Far from it, as I had the opportunity to discover some exciting new brands in the Duty Free arena and was lucky enough to fly home armed with a bag full of samples and goodies to try. By far my favourite discovery of the entire show was New York based designer Lulu DK’s line of non-toxic temporary tattoo jewelry. Tattoo jewlery exploded onto the fashion scene last year with the fashion-forward pinning and ‘gramming photos of bronzed boho babes adorned in beautiful gold & silver jewelry designs. By now there are several brands on the market to choose from, but I feel that Lulu DK’s tattoos stand head and shoulders above the crowd as each tattoo …

giveaway: holdfast outfitters

Have you ever found yourself searching for the right style of comfortable all-day shirt? A soft feel, an attractive look, something to wear at all hours of your casual day? Often times with teaching yoga, I’m always looking for a shirt that’s not too tight, that breaths and that I can basically just throw over a sports bra and head out. So you can imagine my delight when stumbling upon Holdfast Outfitters, because that’s exactly what they make: apparel for the outdoorsy man and woman who may be required to spend some time inside too (that pretty much describes me, and probably most of you readers too!) So I put their shirts to the test – I wear them to my yoga practices, I wear them out paddleboarding, hiking and to work (the occasional indoors). They hold up great in the wash, the colors remain solid and the prints are high quality. This shark tooth top is one of my favorites, naturally. I follow them on Instagram for some outdoor wanderlusting, and I love to …

three year blogiversary giveaway

Thank you, thank you, thank you for three awesome years of your readership! It’s hard to believe I’ve been blogging for three solid years – where does the time go? I first started the blog back in 2011 under the name Roots, transplanted as a way to keep up with family and friends wanting to know all about life in Puerto Rico. I then expanded the blog to include my other hobbies and passions – sharing my experiences, diys, recipes, photography and snippets of life on the island. My hope is that you have found this inspirational and perhaps learned a little something too! So to celebrate this occasion, I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers and businesses to offer one lucky reader a pretty sweet giveaway package valued at $200!! The winner will be able to choose their $100 giftcard to any company they desire; and they also win a $50 store credit to the lovely LilyEmme Jewelry and a $50 e-giftcard to the adorable ballet flats boutique, Tieks (I’m wearing mine …

My first Instagram based giveaway! Yup, surprise! And I’m giving you the chance to win one of my favorite books. Home stylist Sibella Court has always (and forever) been an inspiration to me.

WOW – this is the very first reaction I had to discovering this shop. I’ve explored Soul Makes many times in the past, and was thus beyond delighted for them to consider sea, field & tribe as their next giveaway outlet!

interview with interesting folks: Basha | kantha blankets part II + giveaway!

You may recall the first time I shared with you about the beautiful work of the Bangladeshi women behind the kantha blankets of Hand & Cloth? I have a second installation about these handicrafts and the lives of the women involved, courtesy of Basha – the organization responsible for giving these women the chance to improve their livelihood and feel the love of God in their daily lives.  I interviewed Robin of Basha, to ask her to give us a bit of insight into the world of these Bangladeshi women and how their organization came to bring change. 1. How did your organization get started? What inspired you to work in Bangladesh? I was working in a town called Mymensingh in Bangladesh with Mennonite Central Committee and we started a training program for women wishing to leave prostitution.  Finding out how many were forced into prostitution in the first place, and then seeing how transformed their lives were while they were on the training programme, we knew we’d stumbled onto something very important.  Another program …
