Four Fun Fall Finds
This Fall-colors Tassel Hat from Prana will get you in the mood for cold weather. These cute hats are hand made in Swaziland by the "Go Go's" (meaning grandmothers). 100% of these fair trade profits go right in the pockets of the Go Go's and are used to support their families and improve quality of life.
As soon as the air starts to get crisp, I go for the Chai tea. Tazo makes my favorite one because it has both ginger and anise and it's the closest to my own home made masala tea. Mix it with some hemp or almond milk and stevia or agave, put it in a thermos and take it to the pumpkin patch. Or, curl up on the couch with a good book, a fuzzy blanket, and a cup of this--major comfort. Find it HERE.
Fall finds for Furry Friends:
Cloak and Dawggie makes a great harness for dogs that adds a little extra warmth with a fleece lining. They just step into this harness--it's super simple and has a double d-ring to secure the leash and the harness on the dog. Made for smaller dogs, it seems to be super comfortable and perfect for the transition into cooler climates.
Our dog loves warmth and will find any little spot of sun in the house and bask there. For days when the sun doesn't shine, check out the Crater Dot from the makers of the Sleepypod. There is a warmer pad (sold separately) that slides into a pocket on the bottom. It's a heating pad that gets to 104 degrees (not too hot) to help keep your companion animal warm. Would work for cats and small dogs. It's thin and easy to store when not in use. There is a demo video on their website so you can see how it works, very modern and good concept.
