How many times have you said "I wish I could just walk on some grass?" Never? Oh, come on.
DivineCaroline gives insights into the urge: "Besides feeling good, walking barefoot on the grass ... may have other benefits as well..." This includes restoring your natural electron balance, reducing inflammation and pain, and relief from sleeping disorders and possibly other stress-related conditions.
Our fresh fashion advice is a turfy twist on the old adage "If Mohammad can't go to the mountain, let the mountain come to Mohammad." But in this case the mountain is green and grassy:
Outgrow.me, an online entrepreneurial emporium of successful Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns, brings you Groundwalk Sandals ($35) — walking on a faux meadow might be just the pick-me-up you need (especially if you live in the Northeast).
A bra with deep pockets!
Why get a boost from a Wonderbra when the JoeyBra ($20) is so much more practical. OK, yes, we've all stuck something in there at one point or another. But this is designed to put something and keep it in. You can carry your cell phone (although a friend of mine cautions against carrying those rays so close to your breasts), but certainly money, makeup, keys, credit cards — I can think of oodles of things to carry in there. Getting it out, like perhaps your passport at the airport security desk might look interesting, but... what is a midlife wome if not interesting!
There's "beauty" on the site too: Morninghead (2 for $10), to eliminate bedhead (I thought people bought products to achieve bed head!) or. .. don't just recycle, Infinite Cycle with Stack Soap ($12.50 for a 6-pack), which piggybacks your little sliver of soap onto a fresh bar, thus never wasting any. Honestly, I was just worrying about this last week!
Keep checking back on Outgrow.me too, for new additions — maybe someone will have invented something you're worrying about. By ordering or preordering these items, you are helping to fund and grow those small businesses we've been hearing so much about. And did someone say holiday gifts? Oh, me.
