Pretty in Pastels

Shop the trend here: http://bit.ly/1iur0l2

You can wear them from head to toe…

It’s World Health Day!

To celebrate, we want to help you live better. Staying healthy should be fun and exciting, and lasting changes come from adding things to your life that make you feel great rather than taking things away.

Taking care of yourself starts with great food, and even if you don’t have time to hit the farmers market once a week, you can still put a balanced, healthy meal on the table with new services like Munchery (https://munchery.com) and Sweet Roots (http://www.sweetrootsnyc.com).

If you don’t live in SF or New York, or you don’t want to stop there, treat yourself to one of Leandra’s healthy living picks:
