It's probably a good day to remember that Love is bigger than politics. This beautiful ray of sunshine named Jonna was bringing her brightness to the Lakers game. Thank you Jonna for the perfectly timed photo, and for being awesome! Let's remember to look for the light in each other today.
Many of you are familiar with my Love Is The New Sexy t shirt campaign, but probably don't know I also wrote a song by the same name two years ago. I am very excited to finally share this new single with you! Listen to the song below and download on iTunes or Bandcamp! Special thanks to my awesome Co-Producer Tim Kobza, and to Brian Jones for the stellar mix!
Lots of you are wearing the Love Magnet and Love Is The New Sexy shirts around and haven't sent in a photo yet. Please do and I'll add them to my public photo album HERE! Thank you for spreading so much love!!
Thanks to you all, we are officially sold out of the burgundy color t shirts. They are now collector's items - ha! :) Over the past year I have received the most requests for a black t shirt, so here you go people - introducing the brand new Eco Black tee!! It's the same Alternative Apparel Eco Heather, extremely soft and comfortable, as well as the same unisex fit...
It's lucky Friday the 13th and the weekend when we are officially supposed to be romantic! Are you ready? Well, I'm not necessarily a big Valentine's person but we all know I like to talk about love. I have a different kind of love story I want to share that I received this week from Paula in Charleston, SC. Many of you have shared your photos of wearing your Love Is The New Sexy™ shirts, spreading love and joy all across the country and world. I post them periodically on my public Facebook Page. Paula informed me that this is Random Acts of Kindness Week (February 9-15), and that she has been passionately promoting it in Charleston since 1993. Here are her inspiring words and photos:
"I remember you asking for us to share pics of us expressing love. Well, this just happens to be Random Acts of Kindness Week, with RAK Day on Feb 17th. You can check out the Foundation and get the history of this sweet grassroots idea that's now recognized. The site is also loaded with free ideas and resources. www.randomactsofkindness.org.
This pic is from yesterday. I began the day by buying a few dozen beautiful carnations. Then I tied little Random Acts of Kindness cards to them. Then I got in my car and went out to give them away. I believe in practicing kindness and love every day, but this week is such a beautiful and easy-to-practice reminder of how good it feels to receive and GIVE kindness. I think of you often and always send you light and love. Paula. "
How totally awesome is that? Thank you, Paula, for taking the time to share your story with us, and most of all for being being part of the movement of love, kindness and compassion in our world! I'm so happy to meet wonderful people like you! Who else has a fun story to share about wearing their shirt and being love?
Stop Looking for Leaders to Follow. Be the Leader.
I've been thinking a lot about this lately, as more shirts are spreading around the country and even around the world. Love Is The New Sexy is a movement about amplifying Love. It is shining the spotlight on Love as the main thing - the only thing - more important, more solid than any hipster fashion statement, popularity trend or cultural fad. It's an invitation to be a Leader for Love, a trailblazer that spreads kindness, courage, joy, generosity and compassion through their daily lives.
Love Is The New Sexy is also about sexy. We are all sexual beings, and we live in a media age that bombards us with images and ideas of what is considered sexy. Many, if not most of these are disconnected from the heart, from the whole person. Love Is The New Sexy is making a statement about an empowered beauty that comes from uniting our sexual nature with our hearts. True sexiness is the natural by-product of an inner radiance. There is nothing more beautiful and alluring than someone who is filled with love and lit up from within.
When you wear a Love Is The New Sexy t shirt you are standing up for Love - an empowered, whole being, wholehearted Love that includes everyone as family. People of all shapes, sizes, ages, gender, colors, sexual preferences and cultures are wearing the shirt and spreading love. Thank you for your participation in this movement of Love. Thank you for your free spirits, your open hearts, and for shining your unique lights.
Let's love outrageously together! If you'd like to participate, you can order your on my STORE page.
With deep thanks and joy, Lara
