Eco-friendly Apparel: prAna Is A Beautiful Path To Greener Living

This post is sponsored through Blog MeetsBrand for prAna. All opinions are 100% my own.

Being mindful of the fashion choices we make is one of the first steps to a path of greener living. Purchasing eco-friendly clothing and creating a wardrobe of classic and sustainable essentials, simplifies our lives and benefits the environment. Fashion is not about the latest trendy top that falls apart after a few washings, but the quality clothing you will have for many, many years and, hopefully, pass down to your children.

I've recently tried two fresh pieces from prAna. More than an online boutique for yoga clothing, prAna is a way of life that is synonymous with sustainable and ethical fashion. Their mission is to inspire healthy, active, and free-spirited living by producing garments that are made with love, and health minded and eco-minded materials. Naturally grown, naturally versatile organic cotton and hemp grown in China are just a few of the sustainable sources prAna uses. 

I'm obsessed with prAna's ultra versatile Amelie dress and feel every woman needs this simple black dress! The eco-friendly blend is super soft, comfy, and figure flattering. It can be dressed up or down and takes me from a day at the beach to dinner and a movie in the evening.  It is thick enough that it isn't see-through, but light enough to be a traveler's dream. I like the bra-friendly tank straps, too. Create your own style by adding accessories, putting on your favorite pair of shoes, and you're off in style. 

The more I learn about prAna, the more I understand that less is really more, and it is all about living a more sustainable way to leave less of a carbon footprint.

Yogis will love the amazing fit of the Juniper Pant in coal. A blend of soft hemp, organic cotton, and stretch material for extra mobility.

prAna is a brand whose core belief is that it should give more than it takes from the world. The commitment to sustainability, community, and doing right still inspires and pushes us to find innovative ways to do good things in a good way.

Dancing With The Stars: Interview With Star Dance Instructor Emma Slater

Dancing with the Stars has become a cultural phenomenon. Since its premiere in 2005, the American dance competition television series has been waltzing into the homes of viewers across the USA. They are now on the 24th season, which just premiered on March 20th. Emma Slater, is one of the professional dancers, dance instructors and choreographers. She is paired up this year with NFL player, Rashad Jennings. In addition to being on the show, she has a line of Dancing with the Stars self-tanning products. Slater has been featured in Mamma Mia! starring Meryl Streep and sang on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for the movie with the cast. She even was in the Dirty Dancing tour at the Aldwych Theatre where she was the Principle Latin Dancer and Ballroom Supervisor, and also served as an understudy for the role of Lisa Houseman, at certain locations. She is engaged to fellow dancer, Sasha Farber, who proposed on a broadcast of the show! Swoon!

            “Being on Dancing with the Stars has completely shaped my life,” she explained. “I came out to America purely for the show. Sasha and I were already together, but we were on a world tour at the time so when we both got the call to work on DWTS, it was the first time that we actually moved in together, and in a completely new city – let alone country!” Furthermore, “DWTS really shaped our lives. I love my job, it doesn't even feel like a job to me because it is very much what I love to do, although it's a lot of work!” She talked about how they have hectic schedules, long rehearsals and intense performances. “The show consumes all of your brain power, when you have to choreograph multiple dances throughout the season,” she commented.
