These aren’t the socks your dear Aunt Sally used to give you every year at the holidays. Oh no, they definitely aren’t those.

Lavender Shower Mist

 

Earlier this year, I received a bottle of this fabulous shower spray and knew right away that all of you would love it, too. I spray just a bit after the water is steaming hot and  inhale deeply. So relaxing.  While the bottle is just two ounces, it has lasted months and months because it’s made with 100% pure essential oils. I hope you’ll give it a try.

Say yes to more bliss and less stress.

Today, I am proud to announce that Brush Dance now carrying Jane Inc. bath and body products.

We’ve met the people from Jane Inc.- their offices are just a few short miles from the Brush Dance offices in the San Francisco Bay Area. They are wonnnnnderful friends, creating natural products right here in the US that nourish our souls.

We have (literally) truckloads of new items already at our warehouse with more scheduled to arrive over the next two months.  You can see all of our newest items right here.

 

 

 

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 

calbfly17_salespeice_fc__25130-1456858545-1280-1280
Love the moment, and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.

National Breast Cancer Awareness month was founded in 1985. The famous pink ribbon came along in 1993 when the Estee Lauder Company established The Breast Cancer Research Fund. Ever since, pink ribbons and October have served as reminders that all women need to be screened for breast cancer.

calflow17_salespiece_fc__15183-1457467183-1280-1280
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

As women, we have a tendency to not take care of ourselves. To put the needs (and even the tiny wants) of others before our own.

calgeo17_salespiece_fc__44068-1458758480-1280-1280
In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.

Some women may think they won’t get breast cancer because it doesn’t run in their family.

minyoga17_salespiece_fc__05560-1459367543-1280-1280
Quiet the mind and the soul will speak.

Others may feel like there’s just no time to get to the doctor for a screening.

callily17_salespiece_fc__52177-1458829326-1280-1280
Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower.

It’s important that every woman get screened for breast cancer. You’re important. You owe to yourself and to all of the people who love and rely on you to take care of your body.

Please get screened and talk with your provider about any family history and the appropriate schedule of screenings for you.

Let’s Travel

CALLANE17_Salespiece_FC__14048.1458759914.1280.1280
Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.

Summer is officially over. Many of us are getting settled into a different daily routine. Kiddos are back in school, leaves need raking, holidays need planning, and here I am –  fantasizing about travel.

calreal17_salespiece_fc__91308-1458840719-500-500
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. 

Where shall we go?  Paris with photographer Geogianna Lane? Or maybe to the Dreamer’s Realm with artist Catrin Welz-Stein?

caljgar17_salespiece_fc__95245-1458761883-1280-1280-2
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

We could visit the simplicity of Japanese Gardens for a bit of quiet meditation.

calfair17_salespiece_fc__54697-1457466889-1280-1280

Or maybe take a quiet stroll with Ginger Kelly’s fairies in the land of fairytales.

All from the comfort of our homes.

 

 

Brush Dance Karma Journals

 

jp_hair01_fc__52741-1444244651-1280-1280
Embrace the Chaos

Brush Dance Karma Journals are all about making the best of your life in this present moment. Trying your hardest. Taking care of yourself. Embracing the chaos that seems to enter all of our busy lives.

jp_ren01_fc__66607-1444245067-1280-1280
A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water.

These pretty treasures measure 5×7″ and have 160 lined pages. They feature high-quality paper, and the hard cover has a really nice stay-clean finish. I love them because they are great for on-the-go journaling. (I also keep one handy for list making.)

jp_circ01_fc__26139-1444244433-500-500
Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys

Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys is my personal favorite because it reminds me that not everything I come across is mine to deal with – and what a relief that is.

I’ve given these handy journals to many friends and family members. Priced at just $9.99, they’re also a great bargain for such high quality.

 

Weekly Planners & Date Books

 

planmind17_salespiece_fc__95033-1459432830-1280-1280
The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.

Our busy season is just starting here at Brush Dance.  Those of us who are planner nerds already have chosen our 2017 tools to help us get ready for 2017.

Today, we are featuring a few of our 2017 Weekly Planners and our 2017 Date Books.

All of our Weekly Planners have the same uncomplicated interior design (in varying colors). We feature one week per spread and handy lined spaces for each day of the week. Brush Dance Weekly Planners also have an elastic band to keep things tidy.

plancirc17_spread__53491-1459430930-1280-1280

I love love love that the year runs straight through these books with no stopping. At the front of the Planner, we feature 14 monthly planning pages. I’ll show you my planner and how I use the pages in a future post.

dbtnh17_salespiece_fc__72009-1459428809-1280-1280
With hearts established in mindfulness, we are truly present.

Brush Dance Date Books have been a favorite for many years. These hardcover books feature monthly illustrated tabbed dividers, one week per page, a nifty pocket, and (again) an elastic band to keep your stuff together.

dbroy17_salespiece_fc__45215-1459428701-1280-1280
True-Blue Bravery – We’re talking about the every day, every moment kind of bravery of being yourself, your real true-blue self, brilliant and inspired or imperfect and messy. Owning all of it.

dbroy17_spread__30095-1459428705-1280-1280

I’ve decided to use a Weekly Planner this year. The harder decision is going to be which one!

dbroy17_spread__30095-1459428705-1280-1280

Our Date Books measure 6.5″ x 8.5″ – they would be beautiful for a desk or taken with you in larger bags.

I know I’ll be going with a Weekly Planner for the coming year (I can’t resist the size and simplicity). I just need to figure out which one.

Fall Color Trends

Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 12.04.17 PM

Each year, Pantone (the color experts) comes out with its Fall Fashion Color Report. Above are the trending colors for this season. There are some really attractive ones in the mix this year – and maybe one or two I’m not so wild about.  I love the names – the gray is Sharkskin, the red is Aurora Red, and that purply color on the end is Bodacious.

Today, we’re featuring just a few of our calendar items that are on trend . . .

 

CALDOOR17_Salespiece_FC__83156.1457463546.500.500

If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door – or I will make my own door.

CALLOUD17_Salespiece_FC__22525.1458830541.500.500

You are the universe unfolding.

A woman’s hopes are woven of sunbeams.

Fitting together is more important than fitting in.

PLANTNH17_Salespiece_FC__55531.1459433722.500.500

You are not an observer, you are a participant.

Do you have a favorite from the Pantone selections? There really does seem to be something for everyone this season.
