I cannot even remember how I stumbled upon Pick Your Plum however, I can’t imagine my life without this website. Every day PYP posts a new item for sale – it’s first come first served and in limited quantities. Once the item is sold out then you have to wait until it comes around again. Oh the fun! They offer everything on this site. Initially I was attracted to the washi tape and other craft items that I can’t seem to live without however, they also offer clothing, bags, sandals – you name it and it has probably been on PYP. Did I mention that the prices are ridiculously cheap? I’m talking way below retail prices. Sign up to receive their daily emails and you will know immediately when things are posted and any additional specials they are having.
3. This Quote
I saw this quote on Pinterest this week and for some reason it stuck with me. No matter the reason sometimes our hearts are heavy. I believe “Feelin’ the Feels” makes me a stronger human being. This was a beautiful reminder of that. Don’t tell yourself that you’re weak because you are feeling emotion.
4. Pitch Perfect 2
Should I be this excited for a movie? I think I shall! YAY – the girls are back. I cannot wait to see this movie. The first Pitch Perfect was hysterical. From the trailer alone PP2 looks hilarious. Who’s with me on this one?
5. Bright – Echosmith
I heard this song for the first time a few weeks ago. It’s really upbeat and makes me happy. I love how she’s shining bright in this song. Let’s all shine bright!! Have a great weekend everybody.
I heard about Moo Cards a few years ago. And was reminded of their awesomeness by one of the artists I follow on Instagram. I like the variety of shapes and sizes Moo offers as well as the option to upload your own artwork to have on your cards. Not limited to cards Moo also offers stickers – let’s face it, who doesn’t love a sticker?
I’m going to gush a little over Twin Soul Art Studio. I do have a slight addiction to rubber stamps. This borderline hoarding addiction of stamps goes way back. I wanted to get rubber stamps made for my #taggedbykindness project. I had ordered from Jeanne before and have followed her for sometime on social media. Her work is impeccable and absolutely flawless. Jeanne was fabulous, friendly and patient when I contacted her 20 times with questions regarding sizing, fonts and stamp ideas. Her turn around time was quick and her prices are extremely reasonable. You really aren’t limited in what can be turned into a rubber stamp. Please check out Jeanne’s Etsy Shop and see all the wonderful stamps she creates. I have my eye on a few others already.
Attention all you letter writers and Random Act of Kindness lovers: this site is for you.
Created by Hannah Brencher, More Love Letters is a global organization that collects handwritten love letter bundles for individuals who are struggling and need some words of encouragement. I stumbled across Hannah’s Instagram account and loved her message of positivity. I was lucky enough to get on her Monday Morning email list and learned more about this awesome person! MLL started three years ago when Hannah moved to New York after college. She began leaving anonymous love letters throughout the city encouraging people to keep on truckin’ and letting them know that they mattered. This Random Act of Kindness evolved into More Love Letters. You can read more about Hannah’s story on their site. She recently published a book “If You Find This Letter” which is a memoir that documents her journey. I love Hannah and all of her encouragement. I am amazed at her openness and honesty. Her Monday morning emails are full of encouragement and truthfully make me feel like she’s one of my besties.
Peanut Butter Dream. Three words that quite frankly make me smile ear to ear. Lately this has been my go to spot for a smoothie. You guys know I’m a big smoothie freak and I usually make them at home but I LOVE Rejuiceanation. I get the added energy boost because let’s face it – I can use all the energy I can get.
5. Jason Mraz – Living in the Moment
My super art soul sister Amy from Fearless Lines Blog gave me the 411 on this song. I had never heard it before and we had been discussing life and how lately I’ve been feeling all these feels and just really recognizing and then acknowledging the “moments” as they come. Well then Amy tells me about this song and says “you’ll be singing it for the rest of the day”. Of course I did. Great song that made my soul do a little happy dance! I hope you enjoy it! Have a great weekend everybody! Stay Positive.
My friend Nicole who writes the Always Reiding Blog had a post entitled “Top Ten Tuesday” which this week was a list of ten inspiring quotes from books. Running with the quotes theme I decided to post a few of my favorites today for Triple F. These aren’t all from books but they do happen to be a few of my tried and true favorites.

I am addicted to Instagram. I freely admit this. A flaw? Maybe. But I do enjoy seeing snap shots of people’s lives. I’ve met some really fun folks via Instagram. Here are five Instagram accounts (in random order) that I follow either through Soul-Positive or my own private account. I have a ton more…but it’s only FIVE Friday Feels… (sigh).
Oh how I adore Jayde. She is astonishingly real. She posts about her shop, the mouth watering products in her shop and about her family which includes a husband, two gorgeous sweet children and a big ole’ white dog named Coco who’s always in mischief. You can also find her at her other account @littlebeautylane. Either account she has the funniest hastags on IG. Jayde is the real deal. A total no nonsense genuine gal. Bonus: She loves the Ray Ban Mirror Aviator Sunglasses as does this girl so I assume if we lived closer we’d be BFF’s.
Dr. Steve Maraboli is everything he claims to be – a life changing speaker. His pearls of wisdom keep me loving myself and never settling for second best. No sugar coating. Just good old hard truth facing words that make you stronger after reading them.
Not only do we share a love of baking but we also really love our kids. The photos @thebakermama posts are so delicious looking. I love how she bakes with her little boys too. They are absolutely adorable. Most times she posts the recipe for the baked goods on her website. This is a win win if you see something you like – you can go right online and grab the recipe. This makes my sugar coated heart so happy.
You had me at Easy Tiger….the company’s name. Sweet Lord above this is the coolest name for a company. That being said – they have some seriously rad products. How do I know this? Well let’s just say that Easy Tiger also enjoys an IG giveaway from time to time. I have won pilsner glasses and a $25 gift certificate to their shop in which I picked out a red t-shirt that reads “blah blah blah”….hence furthering my love of all things t-shirt. What initially attracted me to Easy Tiger was the fact that they sell greeting cards (hilarious greeting cards btw) in vending machines. How cool is that? And they drive a mack daddy green van. I enjoy seeing all their new products and the way the company has been growing over the course of the last year. I find the people behind Easy Tiger to be super cool as we’ve conversed via email and IG DM a few times and they are seriously nice people.
So Worth Loving is a Lifestyle Brand that was established in 2011. Their feed is filled with beautiful pictures showcasing their clothing line. The best thing about So Worth Loving is their company motto which reads “No matter your past mistakes, relationship status, or career choice, you are worthy of love. Love you. Love people.” Included in many of their pictures are inspirational quotes and stories from real people who have struggled but made the best of their situations. The feed is so uplifting and encouraging. I must admit…I have two t-shirts and the groovy mid calf socks. Seriously give this account a follow…you won’t be sorry.
This wraps up the Five Friday Feels for this week. I hope you’ll take a minute and check out these Instagram accounts.
