Our spring and summer yoga retreats are just around the corner (last minute deal happening for the Italy Namaslay Yoga Retreat - email us to learn more), our Greece yoga retreat is almost filled up, and we have just one spot left at our Kenya safari yoga retreat! I don't know about you, but I always get super psyched about trips when I start packing. Planning out the outfits and the things I need to have a memorable trip always put me in a good mood. Today I'm sharing a few recent discoveries I love that I think would be perfect to bring on your next trip, and you're in luck because we're giving away all of these goodies to one lucky person. Enter to win below!
Panda Sunglasses, $120. These sunglasses are just what you need this summer. With its wearable, stylish silhouette, the unisex Monroe is a classic wayfarer frame. Its dipped browline and timeless lens shapes look great on all faces. When you wear Panda, you're creating a positive social and environmental impact all around the world. For each pair of Panda sunglasses that is purchased, they give a pair of prescription glasses and provide a medical eye exam to someone in need. You're making a statement to the world that you support fashion with a purpose. Great for practicing with your face towards the sun!
Greener Chef Cutting Board + Utensil Set, $44.99. I’m tired of being HANGRY!! I need to do a better job of having healthy, prepared food with me. This cutting board makes it easy to chop up some fruit/veggies/cheeses for those on the go cravings. Greener Chef makes a great kitchen upgrade or functional gift for any eco-conscious home chef. All YBCers can use promo code GRCHEF20 for 20% off their bamboo cutting board and utensil set.
Do Good Shop Sari Yoga Bag, $38. This is a great little bag for carrying all your yoga gear. The beauty of this little female owned company is that because they are a registered non-profit boutique, all proceeds from each and every purchase benefit artisans escaping human trafficking, forced labor, poverty, and injustice, so you can feel good about your purchase. Use code YOGAFREESHIP for free shipping.
OSEA Malibu Essential Hydrating Oil, $32. This ultra hydrating botanical oil roller has quickly become a fast favorite of mine. I brought it on my recent trip to California and absolutely loved how soft and supple my skin felt using it. It restores a healthy luster to the surface of skin with lavender, roman chamomile, calendula and geranium essential oils. It's super hydrating, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the surface of skin, while providing a calming, aromatherapeutic effect.
Wild Zora Sampler (5 packs), $14.90. Although there are an increasing number of “all natural” and "healthy" jerky on the market, if you look closely at the labels, you’ll find the same grains and sugars you’re trying to avoid are just replaced now with new ones; rice starch or agave syrup - with many of the same negative health effects! I've been a longtime fan of the Wild Zora brand, and am psyched to be including them in this year's Yoga Retreat Packing Guide Giveaway because they're delicious, healthy, and easy to travel with. They’re kind of like a more flavorful, more moist and definitely more nutrient dense jerky. No weird ingredients, no fillers, and their meats are grass-fed and pasture raised. Amen to that! Easy to toss in a bag for a quick snack on the run! All YBCers can use code CANDACEYOGA-25 for 25% off (good through April).
SATVA Bani Bralette in scratch print, $39 + Mantra Legging in scratch print, $59. - Satva Clothing takes an all-natural approach to organic cotton cultivation. Their material is free from pesticides and fertilizers – allowing nature to take its own course and develop self-sustaining ecosystems. This matching scratch print set is great for practice. I’m thinking it will be a perfect fit for my retreat in Kenya ;) All YBCers can use a one-time 20% off code YBC20. This offer is good for any 1 purchase from satvaliving.com.
Manna Nutrition - is a vegan, GMO free, gluten free, and Paleo-friendly bar to keep your hunger at bay when you’re on the go. My favorite is their Cacao Cashew Brownie Bar, which tastes as decadent as it is healthy. A portion of each Manna Nutrition purchase will be used to fund short and long-term clean water, sanitation, and hygiene solutions in areas of need, and you can read all about it on their kickstarter.
- Source Vital Apothecary Stress Relief Roll On, $12.95 - Source Vital Apothecary has an incredibly impressive line of all natural skincare, but I am really in love with this Stress Relief Roll On. It's perfect for travel and when you're feeling a bit anxious on the plane. It smells wonderful with hints of lavender and basil and I've been using it every time I leave the house.
