Many people in Austin and surrounding areas are loyal to the local businesses and ventures however some of us don’t even consider keeping it local when making a purchase.When shopping for birthday gifts I like to buy from the local artisans at Pecan Street Festival or any of our locally owned shops. It not only makes my gifts to my friends and clients unique it keeps my money in the Austin economy. When doing business with a local business rather than a chain the local companies tend to care more about the services and products provided and they become more personal with their clientele so that you can tell your local friends and family to also use their services or buy their products. We buy our Miele Vacuums at Longs Vacuum and Appliance and also Barron’s Vacuum in Cedar Park. Both of these stores are local and they fix our vacuums right in the shop without having to send them off for repairs.I like to tell our clients about Z&M Jewelry in Round Rock as they repair and sell jewelry at an affordable price because they also do all of their work locally. Let’s all participate in the local economy!
Hey there Lotus Flower! If you practice yoga on a regular basis you should clean your mat on a regular basis. Yoga mats aren’t cheap baby so lets keep them clean!
I checked out some pre made yoga mat cleaners and the prices outraged me. $10-$20 a bottle!!!! We have come up with a better solution that’s less expensive!
Keep a small spray bottle with these ingredients…
This recipe is non toxic so you don’t have to worry about absorbing any nasty chemicals while sweating plus it smells heavenly. Your child’s pose will thank you.
1 cup Water
1/4 cup Witch Hazel
1/4 teaspoon Tea Tree Essential Oil (30 drops)
1/4 teaspoon Lavender Essential Oil + 10 drops (40 drops)
Any essential oil will work but it is important to include those with antibacterial properties, such as Tea Tree, Lemon Grass, Lavender, Peppermint and Eucalyptus. Mix two or three together to make a combination that makes you happy.
(Essential oils can be bought at Whole Foods)
Spray your mat down after every yoga session so your Yoga May can be ready for the next session.
Keeping Austin and it’s surrounding counties clean the Eco Friendly way one home at a time
One statement we hear over and over again from our clients with teenagers is to “Please excuse our teens room we rarely go in there” However they leave the dirty work up to us to go in there and we find the most disgusting things in the most beautiful homes. I understand they are in the teen phase and don’t want you, their parents ,invading their privacy but I strongly suggest you do it! Don’t wait till they move out to discover pizza and dirty socks under the bed. Every week it saddens us to see teenagers destruct their rooms because they have lack of respect for their homes. They haven’t been taught the value of their rooms and just eat, sleep, watch T.V and clean only when you make them. Take a moment out to speak to your teens about the value of their rooms and if they leave trash and left over food particles they most definitely won’t be sleeping alone for long. It’s hot and the bugs and other animals outside are not only looking for a cool place to nap but to eat as well. Trash goes in the trash can and dirty laundry goes in the hamper. Two major rules every teen should master
