Check out some of the amazing photo submissions from our #simplysecondnature contest in honor of Earth Day. I hope you find inspiration, as I did, from reading how others are choosing to live beautifully from the inside, out.
One of the best questions I’m constantly asked is what I am most grateful for. For me being grateful is about an experience at a particular place in time…whereas I try to live in gratitude which is really a lifestyle choice. I’m eternally blessed and so many beautiful things come into my life on a daily basis.
The start of April brings about an important time of the year for the Indie Lee brand: it’s the kick off to our anniversary month. After conquering a life-threatening brain tumor that pointed to environment toxins as the culprit, I awoke in April 2009 with a new lease on life… and the passion to create an eco-chic namesake collection. It was the beginning of something beautiful and the start of how we got here today.
I admit it, I’ve been in a funk. Not an all out pull the blankie up over my eyes…but a true writers block funk. The weather here in the Northeast has been quite cold and snowy and well – I guess I needed a little sunshine on my face and some inspiration.We all find inspiration in different ways. Sometimes it’s in a song, a walk along the beach, a hike in the mountains or just reading a good book while the sun warms you. Personally, I find inspiration in nature.
