The Friday Five | July 24th

by Liz Allen

Every week we'll share our favorite podcast episode, recipe, influenced item, a tip on living better everyday and something that inspired us. How much fun it that?!


When you pick up your morning walk routine - one of many benefits is getting to fit more Podcasts in. I love when I stumble across an interview that introduces me to a new personality / brand! Loved Kimberly Snyder's interview on The Balanced Blonde's Podcast, and now, subscribed and actively listening to all of The Feel Good Podcast episodes. A recent podcast on emotional support is super timely.


I always love a good Brussel recipe. They are def on our weekly rotation, and this recipe by Ambitious Kitchen grew my love for them even further. A little sweet, a little spicy - a whole lotta yummy. 


Relax Melodies has always been SUCH a good sleep aid for me and my family (including my old pup, Dakota!) Having just a little noise keeps me sleeping longer and sounder. Couldn't recommend this app more. The sounds are all customize-able - can't go wrong. Use code STARS for 30% off your annual subscription at

Better Everyday:

I lack a green thumb, so have been really loving my AeroGarden that allows me to grow my own herbs and spices! I keep it right next to my stove in the kitchen. Fresh really is best - it makes SUCH a flavorful difference!


We're so inspired by the work of Shannon Layne - and thrilled to announce a Collaboration between her and KITLIFE. She's been working away on a BEAUTIFUL cover for our 2021 lineup that we can't wait you to see.
