My long running romance with (MALIN+GOETZ) is deep. First of all, founder Andrew Goetz was my big brother’s dear friend growing up and all I can remember is Andrew (ok Andy back then) being the funniest, coolest and warmest of all my bro’s friends. Everyone loved Andrew and now, the WORLD loves the line he created with Matthew Malin. Who doesn’t want to take home those little bottles when you see them in select (best) hotels and bathrooms. Ok, who DOESN’T just scoop them all and stash them in your bags, suitcases or wherever else you can find a little room.
So check out this rad collab with the obsessively addictive striped apparel brand La Ligne,founded by a trio of girls you just wanna be bff’s with,Molly Howard, Meredith Melling and Valerie Boster. Insert the little hand raising emoji here please.
The two simplistic brands, each known for creating everyday essentials in beauty and fashion, have partnered up to create a limited edition “High Notes” collection in honor of 4/20, (sweet!) inspired by the recent progress in the legalization of marijuana (hella yass).
The set includes the m+g cult-favorite Cannabis candle and an exclusive La Ligne ringer tee, specially embroidered with the phrase, “Sticky Icky.” The High Notes set is available for purchase as of Monday (4/16) on malinandgoetz.com.
HOW FREAKIN FAB?
What a cool cannabis collab. Sign me up and light it up. 🙂
I am over the moon and back over the gorgeous duo, Kaerhart and Luke, and their spirited environmentally conscious-driven brand of sunny tees, tanks, suits and sweatshirts exploding with high-vibe messaging all done in a fun, flirty, slightly retro way. What I love is that there is a little wink to their graphics and slogans, a sense of playfulness that keeps it from being like other those other ‘spiritual’ slogan lines. Theres is intention in Mystic Tribe and a heavy dose of joy. It’s not over the top serious. It’s fun. You can feel it. And that is exactly what these Kaerhart and Luke radiate.
But what is behind the brand is serious. And that’s the fact that it’s driven by a commitment to environmentally conscious manufacturing practices by using eco-friendly textiles and production techniques that strive to eliminate water usage by cutting our the dye process. They only make garments to order. In other words: no waste.
I discovered them during a week long challenge served up by the adorable Elevate The Globe girls. Britt was wearing the PSYCHIC tee and I was like…I HAVE TO MEET THESE GUYS!
Mystic Tribe is the lovechild of founders Kait Kaerhart and Luke Monteleone. While sitting in a natural hot spring in Thailand reflecting on their lives (and careers), the duo had a profound realization that they had a higher calling to channel their innate talents and energy into endeavors that truly made an impact. Months later, Mystic Tribe was birthed from their desire to fuse the spiritual wisdom and practices they’ve learned over the years with modern day lifestyle. Our mission is to empower a tribe of spiritual seekers and yogis, while curating pieces that support the conscious lifestyles they lead. Our motto; “We Are One Tribe”, serves as the heartbeat of our brand and is reflected in every fiber of our existence.
Below are some of my favorite pieces. They are all so playful and bright – I want them all! So does Aria and what better messaging for a tween?!
MORE ABOUT THEIR CONSCIOUS PRACTICES
What’s also cool is they have a live podcast video show and they recently had Shaman Durek on who I love so so much and hope to see in the next few weeks for a private session. Check this out below – you can meet Kaerhart youself and this excellent interview with the beloved Shaman D.

Here’s the deal. Blue light keeps us up. Period. We are on screens all day. All night. BEFORE BED!!! Swannies Blue Light Blocking Glasses improve the quality of your sleep by filtering out harmful artificial blue light from electronic devices that shuts down your body’s natural melatonin production and disrupts your sleep. Swannies also prevent eye damage from excessive screen use as well as symptoms of digital eye strain such as sore eyes, headaches and fatigue. What more do you need to know?
Would you like to fall asleep faster, and sleep more deeply?
Would you like to wake up feeling more refreshed, ready to tackle the day?
What about having a greater sense of control over your cravings?
Have you ever woken up feeling hungover, even though you didn’t have any alcohol the night before, and wondered why?
Crappy sleep = hormones become dysregulated, increased cravings (usually for rapidly digesting carbohydrates), emotional instability, and reduced cognitive function.
Did you know that after just a single night of poor sleep, a metabolically healthy person is essentially pre-diabetic the next day?
The problem is, blue light from our screens tells our brains that its daytime, which prevents our pineal gland from secreting a hormone called melatonin that is responsible for (among other things) helping us wind down and sleep long and deeply.
I also am loving the sleep mask. Darkness (and cool room) a must. Also, try the Magnesium spray. I can’t tell if it’s working but I spray it anyway. I also got a pair for my kids cuz iPAD!

A little back-story:
CEO Ellie, the always-on-the-road business traveler, found herself on numerous similar occasions: whether in coffee shop trying to reach her wallet in her handbag to pay for her coffee while placing her laptop bag on the counter awkwardly, or at airport having her arm squeezing the laptop bag tightly against her body while try to find the boarding pass in front of a line of antsy crowds. She decided something needs to be changed. Having two bags is simply redundant.
When she was doing research for solutions, she found that most of the fashion designers focus on aesthetics, but are not really thinking about a modern woman’s lifestyle. It seems that no designers are truly interested in design for those who are on the go. Ellie wants to design truly functional handbags for women like her – who not only want to look good but are also professionals with jobs.
All of sight’s laptop bags are a refined result of delicate detailing for months, careful creation and marvelous craftsmanship by skilled artisans. Every handbag is designed with style, functionality, and comfort in mind. With artisans’ expertise and hard work, the handbags achieve the perfect look and designer quality.
