Straight from Vogue

I love that this story came out just days after our last newsletter sharing with you all why Rope Sandals were the shoe of the summer.
In the Vogue story above written by
She writes about traveling to Spain for vacation, packing her Nomadic State of Mind sandals, and how the relationship with her rope sandals started.

I remember when I first spotted them, it was on vacation in Nice, France.  I didn't leave the country without a pair.

I especially love Madeline's recount of what wearing her vacation infused rope sandals means to her wearing them back at home. 

Read the story and be inspired.
Jen and Giselle love them too!

Immune Boosting Morning Tonic

We've all heard that starting your morning out on the right foot sets the tone for the day.

This has always been true for me, and it's amazing how just the smallest detour can change the beat of an entire day.
I tend to develop "unintentional routines", and as lackluster as that may sound, I must admit, it's been a gift. 

Here are just a couple of the habits I've implemented
into my morning routine, that I have found to help
boost my energy, productivity, and health.

Interested in my morning tonic?

First things first!
A tall glass of clean delicious water.
(I make mine Gem-Water!)

  Waking up and re-hydrating, first thing,  feels great, especially after a long night's sleep.
  I also make it a priority to drink plenty of water throughout the day.  I start off by filling up my favorite Gem Vial decanter
every morning, with the goal, to have it finished before lunch. 


 I prepare my Immune-Boosting Morning Tonic that I believe prepares my body for the day
by aiding in cleansing and nourishing my insides.  

I drink it down with my daily supplements.
(well, I shoot it really, as it still is not my favorite tasting beverage)

It should be noted, that starting out with just lemon in warm water every morning is a great start!
  • Lemon water cleanses and stimulates the liver and kidneys, so I like the idea of pampering my insides and clearing out any lingering chemicals and toxins, just as I do my outsides.  And with Lemon water, its a cinch.

Here are some reasons why you should consider adding this healthy immune-boosting tonic to your morning routine.

You will need:
1 Lemon
1-2 TBS Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (with the mother)
1 Tsp Wheat-grass powder
(drink at least 15-30 minutes before your first meal.)

  • Vitamin C is a perfect antioxidant that helps keep your skin looking young and healthy. 
  • It's anti-inflammatory and along with the ACV, alkalizes the body (once it hits the gut).
  • Protecting my liver and reducing the formation of crystals or stones that can form in the kidney.

  • ACV -   I like to use a high quality raw and unpasteurized like Braggs - with the mother.  Its main source is apples. 
  • (do not use distilled white vinegar)
  • It's a digestive aid and helps with insulin sensitivity.
    It's great for your Microbiome, our "second brain", so it has a huge impact on our immune system. 70% of our immune system is located in the gut.
  • helps you absorb minerals and vitamins like calcium, iron, magnesium Vitamins C, K, and B12. 
  •  Stimulates the immune system by helping white blood cells speed up to help fight infection.

  • First, It is a Super Food!
  • It boosts your immune system by enhancing its functions which can help ward off infection. 
  • It's important to have a strong immune system to help combat any colds, illnesses, or virus's we can catch.
  • Helps with detoxification, by aiding the elimination of toxins.
  • Boosts energy and improves blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  • All that fantastic chlorophyll in your body does wonders for your skin, blood, and organs by rejuvenating your cells and supporting your liver.
  • An excellent source of fiber and may curb your morning cravings for sweet-tasting foods, which your waistline will thank you for later!

The powder form is the easiest way to consume this miracle plant, and one serving stirred into your lemon and ACV water glass is a great addition to set your day straight.

  • it's very high in potassium, so take that into consideration if you suffer from kidney disease.
  • After a couple of weeks, you can work up to 2 tablespoons of ACV and a Whole Lemon.
Know that ACV does come in pill form and like Wheatgrass,
Should only be purchased from a trusted supplier,
such as a reputable health store

Remember, this is not a "magic bullet".
This is a daily tonic to nourish your body and  help improve your
overall health and energy. 

A good diet and a healthy active lifestyle are always important and advised.

Make the decision to live a simpler lifestyle which includes:
removing yourself from toxic relationships;
learning the art of forgiveness;
and being of service to others. 

After all, our psychological (and emotional) well-being is intimately connected to our physical health.   

And lastly, don't forget to drink lots of water and smile daily!
