Rainbow Workout Gear + Exercises!

Recently I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of working out and eating healthier. And it’s no cake walk, you guys! Trust me, if there was cake involved, I would be ALL in.¬†Though I have found that having cute, colorful workout gear helps motivate me to get moving. Imagine that ūüėČ When I came across the shoe color selection Saucony offers, I was absolutely giddy! I couldn’t decide on just one color, so the whole team got a pair so I could live out my rainbow dreams because they come in the loveliest sherbert colors.

Now don’t be mistaken, I’m taking things slow. Nothing too intense or high impact to begin with, so these shoes are great for my long walks and low impact workouts. Of course, I’ll be wearing them all around town with my dresses too!¬†Not only are they cute, but super comfy!

In addition to the shoes, we rounded up our favorite workout outfits to coordinate with our new, revolutionizing RAINBOW work out. Ha! An easy workout in every shade (and letter!) of the rainbow–P(ink), R(ed), O(orange), Y(ellow), G(reen), B(blue)because it‚Äôs always easier to remember when there‚Äôs a mnemonic device and we‚Äôre clearly fans of a rainbow. Plus, who doesn’t want to match their shoes to their scrunchie?

If you’re in need of some motivation to get moving, take a look at the shoes, gear and a few moves we’re trying!¬†

The Rainbow Chapter: My Life In Color

My Life In Color prompted journal

Because our new guided journal, My Life In Color, is divided into color chapters, we’ll be focusing¬†on a different color¬†combination every week for the next month. This week, it’s RAINBOW, the first chapter of the book. The chapter focuses some introductory questions about yourself and helps you identify your favorite color palettes and why. I couldn’t help but write all my answers in every color of the rainbow…because why not?! And because there are so many rainbow products out right now, I’m including my favorite to help you fill out your own journal.

And some office supplies (and other goodies) to complete the rainbow adventure!

  2. Rainbow pouch
  3. Rainbow ring
  4. Rainbow page markers

DIY Confetti Tablecloth

DIY Confetti Tablecloth

To celebrate the launch of our new collection of rainbow journals, we are focusing on¬†a different color combination¬†each week of the month. This week it’s all things RAINBOW. You’ll be seeing a rainbow project,¬†round up, and This Girl.¬†

Who doesn’t love confetti? I’m¬†convinced that confetti, rainbow sprinkles, glitter, and funfetti¬†flavored anything make¬†the world a better place. There’s just something magical about those rainbow colored flecks. They’re also responsible for making everything messier–an unfortunate¬†truth.¬†This DIY Confetti Tablecloth screams fun but without the cleanup! Small geometric shapes are cut from iron-on vinyl and ironed directly onto a tablecloth for permanent confetti! We chose a lovely¬†Aquamarine linen tablecloth with white pom trim from Magic Linen and they have a variety of beautiful shades to choose from. But you can use any tablecloth you like! This will become your go-to tablecloth for birthdays and special occasions and¬†you won’t find any rogue confetti hiding in the corners weeks later!

Let’s get ready to party with this DIY Confetti Tablecloth!¬†

My Life In Color

My Life In Color prompted journal

We’ve been hinting about it here and there, but the secret is finally out!

We’ve released a vibrant collection of rainbow journals and notebooks and they are out TODAY! The collection features three designs including a guided journal titled, My Life In Color, a companion book to Craft the Rainbow, and a softcover blank striped notebook and blank hardcover marbled journal. With a hint of metallic gold and lovely textures, they just might be the prettiest¬†journals you’ve ever laid eyes on. In my humble opinion, of course ūüėȬ†My Life In Color prompted journal

Like Craft the Rainbow, My Life In Color features 9 chapters divided by color and asks a series of questions based on color, your experiences with color, and associations with color. It’s hardcover and once you take off the dust jacket you’re in for a real treat, because it features an exposed binding showing off the gorgeous colors of the rainbow.

I’ve always been a color fanatic and have very vivid memories–good or bad–of specific items and rooms. Don’t you? For example:

I remember a burgundy sweatshirt that I wanted to badly when I was young. It was the 90s so it was very much a color of the moment. That, combined with a navy blue and a forest green, and you were SET! I added some classic 90s leggings and an oversized t-shirt and wore that thing out.

I also remember my bicycle that I got for Christmas when I was 10. It wasn’t sitting under the Christmas tree and I was so sad. My dad asked me to go get him a fork from the kitchen and there it was in all her glory. My Huffy White Heat bicycle. She was white with grey speckles on her and she was beautiful. I broke her after only 2 days and we went back to the store to get another and a replacement was nowhere to be found. We called every location in Southern California and no dice. My replacement was a blue and pink combo and I couldn’t STAND the color of the blue or the pink. To this day, those shades give me the icks.

I created this journal because one of the best parts in creating the Craft the Rainbow were the personal anecdotes of each craft and color, but I’m aware–not everyone loves to craft. I GET IT! But!¬†EVERYONE has memories of color and this is a great way to capture those memories and impressions.

Take a look:

I know, guys! We all like color in some way!

BUT, what do we all need even more? Just a plain ‘ole notebook, and we’ve got two of them! One is a plain notebook.

And the other is blank journal.My Life In Color prompted journal

The blank notebook is softcover in lovely texture. The journal is hardcover and has a gorgeously exposed binding,¬†Isn’t it beautiful?!¬†I love seeing the complete collection of books. From those who love to craft, those who love to journal, and those who love to keep notes and doodle. We can now offer something for everyone!

You can shop the collection in various combinations from our Shop here.

I’d love to hear what YOUR favorite color is and why. Please share using the hashtag #MyLifeInColorBook¬†or #HueAreYou

Some of our favorite bloggers and Instagrammers are sharing their favorite colors. We’ll be sharing about them over the next couple of weeks. And stay tuned for a month of color-themed projects and posts, a color combination for each week!

May the hue be with you!

Thank you to Sycamore Co. for making the video!  Photos by Jane Merritt

Velvet Ribbon Bolster Pillow

Velvet Ribbon Bolster Pillow
My good friend Anne Weil of Flax and Twine just released the most lovely book chock-full of weaving projects! Weaving is something I have yet to master but I’m certainly going to be trying my hand at a few of her projects! The book it titled Weaving Within Reach: Beautiful Woven Projects by Hand or by Loom. I love the variety she offers in the book, from home decor to accessories, there is something for everyone. I’m thrilled to be able to share one of my favorite projects from the book, the Velvet Ribbon Bolster Pillow. This is such a lovely way to jazz up a traditional throw pillow.
Try the project and make sure to grab a copy of Anne’s beautiful book!
