The holidays are my favorite time of year - lots of parties and celebrations, sparkling holiday displays, and meaningful moments with family. Added bonus this year: SoulShine Designs' first holiday season!
Thanks to Yoga Six St. Louis, Yoga Six Des Peres, Mindful Movements & Yoga Buzz for hosting my jewelry trunk shows, and to all the fabulous ladies (& gents!) who purchased my jewelry as meaningful holiday accessories and gifts.
Now that the holidays are in the rear view, the focus for many of us quickly shifts to the new year, and new intentions we've set. Often in yoga, we set intentions to guide us throughout our practice, and ideally, that stay with us once we leave the mat. I think of New Year's resolutions the same way: something to come back to when you take the time to pause; for instance, when you're doing dancer's pose in the middle of a glacier, rocking a fabulous pair of Teeki yoga pants (my slight obsession).
Let's be honest...many of us probably won't experience the zen of a glacier in person, and rarely take time to pause and reflect. Our lives are so busy that when we do find time to relax, we often zone out, mindlessly scrolling through facebook, or escape our daily stresses by watching TV or reading a book. That's why having a constant reminder of our goals is so helpful. And that's what SoulShine's jewelry aims to accomplish. When you choose a design with a meaning that speaks to you (e.g. calming stress relief, emotional balance, or intuition), wearing that meaning your wrist gives a powerful and constant reminder of that intention you set.
If you're looking to steadily head down the path of becoming the best version of yourself, there's one new design that may particularly resonate: the Healing & Self Discovery Amethyst bracelet. Amethyst is a powerful gemstone that encourages healing, whether it's from a physical ailment, or past experiences and mistakes. The North Star charm reminds to you stay the course to becoming the best, truest version of yourself. For the month of January, in honor of the new year, this design is 20% off.

Good luck with your intentions for the new year, and always let your soul shine!
