Two of my closest friends just returned from two years away in the Peace Corps! I had the pleasure of picking them up at the airport and throwing them a small party over the weekend. I could not think of a better gift for one of my friends than the Koala SpiritHood. She LOVED it! They just don't have warm, soft, and cuddly things like that in Guyana! Here are a few pics of my friends in the hoods :)
Any of you that follow this blog know that I am a total brown bear in spirit. I am the proud owner of the original brown bear, half brown bear, and grizzly bear SpiritHoods... and of all the hoods I own, these are my favorites!
It goes without saying that I am totally stocked about Bear Awareness Week! It is so awesome that SpiritHoods will donate $85 per brown bear or grizzly bear hood that is sold! If you have had you eye on one of these bear hoods for a while, next week is the time to get them!
I am so excited to announce that the Fire Wolf SpiritHood is BACK!! You all have been asking for it, and here it is... available for purchase now!!
Also coming very soon, and just in time for the summer are SpiritHoods Swim Wear!!!! Here is the promotional photo for a sneak peek!
In honor of the new Peta Bunny collaboration SpiritHood, I wanted to share one of my favorite Meatless Monday meals with you and introduce you to my friend, Chef AJ!
If you are unfamiliar, Meatless Mondays are about starting each week with healthy, environmentally friendly meat-free alternatives. By cutting out meat once a week, we can improve our health, reduce our carbon footprint and lead the world in the race to reduce climate change.
Last week I had the pleasure of attending a cooking class by one of my favorite vegan chefs, Chef AJ. Her cookbook, Unprocessed, is one of my favorites! Not only are her recipes cruelty-free, but they are also so healthy! No sugar, no salt, no oil.... just pure deliciousness! And guess what... Chef AJ also likes to get hoodie with it!!
Chef AJ's Lentil Tacos are the perfect way to begin an busy week! So easy and so yummy! This recipe comes from here book, Unprocessed. For more delicious healthy vegan recipes, check out her book and website www.eatunprocessed.com
1 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup dry lentils, rinsed
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
14 ounces water
1 cup salt-free salsa
Salt-free seasoning, to taste
Put everything in a crock pot and cook on high for 8 - 12 hours, stirring occasionally and adding water as needed. This taco filling can be used anywhere you would normally use a meat taco filling, such as in taco shells and on salads.
Did you know that 30% of net profits from the Peta Bunny collaboration SpiritHood are donated to Peta? Not only is hood awesome, but buying it is also a good way to give back to the ethical treatment of animals!
Mom & Me SpiritHoods are the perfect gift for Mothers day! ... Just think about it! If you are in the U.S. and order today it will get there just in time....
I think one of my favorite things about wearing my SpiritHoods is that it makes me think of my favorite childhood book, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. I can imagine myself right there with the character Max. I was saddened to hear of Maurice's passing yesterday at 83 years old. Where the Wild Things are presented a unique combination of freedom, energy, imagination, fear, frustration, and loneliness, which represents the best and worst of childhood. I know that his legacy will continue to live on through his books.
I think the perfect gift for any child would be a copy of the book with a kids SpiritHood!
For all of you dog lovers... this is SO heartwarming! Check it out :)
I am SERIOUSLY obsessed with the new SpiritHoods Kids Doodle Hoods! I have said it before and I will say it again... I wish I had more children in my life to get SpiritHoods for! Even better... can I be a kid so that I can fit in this amazing new hood?
Doodle Hoods come in either the kids snow leopard or kids husky. They are the perfect way for a child to connect with their inner animal spirit and express their artistic creativity by designing their own SpiritHood liners! Included with the purchase is are Cra-Z-Art washable markers that can be used to draw on the white cotton hood liner. Just wash the hood to start over with a clean drawing surface. I can't think of a better way to make your SpiritHood truly your own!
New SpiritHoods Jewelery has been released and is available for purchase!
The SpiritHoods Silver Feather Necklace is plated with oxidized sterling silver and contains South American natural turquoise. It's a beauty!
And a couple of weeks ago, a new Matte Black Falling Whistle was released! I have the Original Falling Whistle and I absolutely adore it, but this one might have to join my collection also!
