Plant-Based Easter Basket

Spring is a few weeks away, and holidays are coming up too. Many want to put some spring-like decorations on the table or use them as a centerpiece. But some don’t know where to begin. Lively Root wants to guide you through the process so you can use what you have on the shelves while also using your indoor plants!

What type of container?
Let’s build a table arrangement together. Start with digging through your old Easter baskets, containers of any shape, size, or color (painting is optional later). Set them all out.

Gather the Extras
Then pull together any accessories you might want to use in your display. You can use Easter motifs like eggs, crosses, bunnies, carrots, cabbages, etc. We will use birds, eggs, and nests for our presentation so the arrangement could be in use for longer than just one holiday. You may even venture out on a walk and pick up bits of nature to use too. Mosses, twigs, dried cones, or leaves can also be a part of the collection.

Grouping Plants and What to Consider
Next, gather your houseplants in the 4-6″ grower pot containers that you have. Different heights would be excellent, as well as those that have pretty colored leaves or blooms. For this presentation, the kalanchoes and Neanthe Bella Palm, Snake plant, English ivy gold child, spider plant, and pink polka dot plant are compatible because they all like to dry out between waterings. As you assemble plants in groupings, you’ll want to consider their light needs as well as watering and humidity needs. You may want to use this assembly temporarily or for several weeks. It will be easier to maintain if all the plants take basically the same type of care.

Recycle and Repurpose
If this will be semi-permanent, you’ll want to make sure that your container drains well. If your planter doesn’t have a drainage hole, get out your handy-dandy drill and drill a few holes in the bottom.

You may want to recycle an old Easter basket or gift container you got a gift in prior. You may find something but not like the color anymore! That’s when a paintbrush and chalk paint comes in handy. It’s easy to use and easy to clean up.

If you don’t have a collection of has-beens, drop by the local resale store and rummage through their cast-aways. You’re sure to find the perfect container.

Create Groupings
Once you have your containers, clean them up, paint them and let them dry. Next, assemble your plants and accessories. Do small groupings to see what you like best. Place the plants (in the grower pot) in your chosen container just to see how the arrangement looks before assembling. Take a picture with your phone to remember the setup. Then remove all the items. We use a screen to place over the container’s bottom to help hold the soil, so it doesn’t drip through and clog the drainage holes.

Next, select the correct potting soil for the plants you assemble. At this point, you can either keep the plants in the grower pot and set them in the container and cover them with craft moss or pot them straight into the decorative container. It’s up to you. If it is a temporary selection, then the grower pot assembly may be the easiest way to go. We use a cactus and succulent mix with a little well-draining potting mix together for these plants.

Plant and Assemble

You will want to build the soil up a bit before placing the plants. Remember to leave the soil line below the top of the container about 1/2-1 inch so there won’t be water spillover. If using it temporarily, you can keep the plant in the grower pot and place them on the soil. If you’re using it as a more permanent collection, remove the grower pot and place the plant where you want it in the assembly. As you go, fill in around each plant, tucking soil in between each one so the roots are covered and secure.

Do the rest the same way. If needed, make a funnel out of a plastic container or poster board and feed the soil through it to get to the tight spots where your hands don’t fit. Tamp down the soil with your fingers or a spoon. Be careful not to bury the top of the stems in soil but just up to your plant’s soil line. You can add a top dressing of time-release fertilizer or use a balanced liquid fertilizer when watering. Once it all is assembled, use a clean paintbrush to brush any excess soil on the leaves. Then check the soil moisture around each plant and water as needed. Next, top dress with craft moss or colored rocks.

Then slide in your accessories to make it festive!

Mix Nature In
Another fun way to decorate around the house is to use the nature items you might have picked up outside. Bark, twigs, and moss can be a part of the next project. Inspect the items for ants, bugs, or the like before assembly and remove them.

Keep your plant inside its grower pot. Use a hot glue gun to glue the pieces around the grower pot and assemble them in an organic arrangement.

Finish it off with some twine or raffia. Set these on a side table or in a collection together. Or you can use them at each place setting as a take-home gift for your guests.

Now, once you’ve got your decorations finished, snap a photo and share it with us on Instagram or Facebook! We’d love to see your plant creations! Tag us with #LivelyRoot and share the love!

Extra bonus:
Use your children’s leftover Easter baskets to repurpose into a summer arrangement by following the same instructions as above. We didn’t plant them in the soil this time but left them in the grower pots and tucked moss around the containers. When it’s time to water, just disassemble, water, let drain, and then place back into the basket. We included a clear plastic saucer to protect the basket in case of leftover dripping

A vegan and cruelty-free line, Ida’s Body Scrub stimulates the skin, activating and cleansing it, so you feel revived and ready. Sugar is beneficial to the skin because it is a natural humectant.

ArT Wine Preserver®

More people are finding reasons to enjoy a glass of wine at home these days. In some areas, the bars still aren’t open. As kids go back to school, parents are finding themselves needing an extra glass of wine or two, especially with homeschooling and distance learning this year. What’s a better gift for Valentine’s Day than a tool to preserve this romantic beverage.

Most opened bottles of wine go to waste and an estimated  $1.5 billion worth of wine is poured out every year due to oxidation. ArT Wine Preserver® wants to change this wasteful drinking habit. At the same time, it’s promoting moderation drinking in a sustainable way. This made in the USA, recyclable wine saver uses pure argon gas to displace oxygen. Argon gas is the preferred method by winemakers to prevent oxidation in wine.

Argon is a natural atmospheric gas that’s non-toxic and non-reactive. It makes the perfect wine preserver because it doesn’t react with your wine flavors or aromas, it simply displaces the oxygen. It also, keeps wine fresh 7 to 30 day, preserves up to 40 bottles per can and takes two seconds to use.

WHOOP Health Monitor

In case you aren’t familiar, WHOOP is a 24/7 fitness tracker and health monitor that provides personalized, actionable feedback and tracks key metrics like heart rate variability, resting heart rate, respiratory rate, and sleep staging with industry-leading accuracy. WHOOP distills all of this data down into three key pillars – recovery, strain and sleep – and provides coaching so users can balance their daily lives, train optimally and unlock the secrets to their body’s true potential. 

In April, WHOOP reported findings about the importance of tracking respiratory rate (RR) during the pandemic, and how sudden changes could be significant. In short, WHOOP found that people who had tested positive for COVID-19 had elevated respiratory rates (while people experience most other illnesses did not exhibit that change in RR). Pro golfers, Nick Watney & Scott Stallings, both used WHOOP to track RR and subsequent positive tests for COVID-19, and countless members have shared similar experiences on social media. Lots more info on WHOOP & COVID-19 here and here

STRAIN, SLEEP & RECOVERY

Strain is a measure of the cardiovascular load your body takes on over the course of a day or during a given activity. WHOOP does not count steps, but calculates your personalized exertion and quantifies it on a scale from 0-21.

Recovery is a personalized measure of how ready your body is to take on strain each day. WHOOP calculates your recovery based on 4 physiological markers: heart rate variability (HRV), resting heart rate (RHR), respiratory rate (RPM), and sleep.

Sleep Performance is the amount you slept compared to how much sleep you needed. WHOOP auto-detects your sleep and wake times each day as well as your sleep stages throughout the night to determine your sleep performance for that night.

The WHOOP Lux Kit includes a band and clasp and is the perfect gift for your loved one this Valentine’s Day. It’s sophisticated and useful, so it’s sure to be a hit. Add a WHOOP membership to your gift so they can always stay healthy.

Promotional Photos for Noorullah Line for 360 Magazine

Noorullah

By Hannah DiPilato


With a line that unites sustainability and style, Noorullah is a brand to watch. The timeless collection features unique and versatile pieces that appeal to everyone. 

Recently, we caught up with designer Noorullah Amiri who explained what makes the line different from the rest of current-day high fashion. 


Where did you pull inspiration from for this line?


I pulled inspiration from the Ancient Egyptian wardrobe, which is a white linen fabric that has drape. Linen fibers create a very functional fabric that is breathable and good for temperatures all year round. For the pajama styles, I took inspiration from Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s stained glass window in the St. Peter’s Basilica from 1660. It was fitting to use that print for the pajamas, which you can lounge and meditate in.


The tracksuit is inspired by Ancient Greek Olympians, who would participate in the Olympic events. The idea was to create a comfortable and functional tracksuit also for lounging or exercising in cold weather. I also made use of genuine snake leather for small leather goods in relation to Ancient Greek biblical artworks: “Adam and Eve” and “Laocoon and His Sons”.  And also, lamb leather in relation to “The Sacrifice of Issac”.


What made you want to create sustainable fashion?

In the fashion industry, 85% of textiles go to the dumb each year and bits of fibers from the washing machine pollute the ocean. Producing new clothes causes pollution and there is post-consumption pollution as well. The best way to be sustainable is to close the loop in the fashion cycle and use only recycled textiles for making new fibers and materials.


It is our duty to take care of the planet for a better quality of life. And the fashion industry needs to be more sustainable to preserve the ecosystem. Our approach currently, is to focus on style and quality to create sustainable products. Style determines how long products will remain relevant and desirable, while quality determines how long the design will hold up during its use. We fully commit to our highly detailed designs with confidence so that they can be everlasting in terms of style and durability.


Have you had any community involvement relating to your company’s purpose?

Last year in San Francisco, on Earth Day, I went to a fair to gain and spread knowledge about sustainability, and also planted redwood tree sprouts that can grow up to 300 feet.


Where do you hope to see your designs in the future?

I hope to keep the designs exclusive and desirable so they can be enjoyed for a long time. We would like to have a strong global online presence with boutiques in strategic locations.

It is a dream to be able to provide people an experience from our world when shopping inside a brick-and-mortar location. I have a passion for storytelling through visual merchandising. In addition, I hope to have a limited wholesale partnership with a luxury department store.


What is your personal favorite piece from the collection and what makes this your favorite?

If I have one pick, I am going with the Wool Overcoat because it is comfortable and warm. I can wear almost anything underneath and still maintain a modern look. Also, similar to all of the garments from the collection, I created each pattern piece custom for your body. And I like that it has 4 deep pockets for holding valuables.


What would you say is the one thing that makes you stand out against other designers?

I would say it is my confidence because my design process is functional yet artistic, producing something with its own identity. I can pull inspiration from nature, for example, to create something that is unique in design having function and playing with silhouettes or other design elements.


When did you begin designing and how did you get started?

I began designing vector artwork using Adobe illustrator in 2011. I was working on a streetwear brand with t-shirts and fleece before designing window displays and private label brands for assignments in college.

I got started with the Noorullah brand by gathering inspiration and having an end-use in mind for the products. The end-use is when the garments will be worn, where, and by who. Getting an understanding of end-use is what enabled me to get started with bringing the inspirations to life.


Why do some pieces have only limited numbers available? Is this something you plan to change or continue doing in the future?

Everything from the collection is very limited because there are so many ideas to play with for new designs. The collection is truly exclusive and there will be a fresh collection to build from the previous one. In the future, as we expand our business, we will continue to keep the merchandise exclusive in proportion to consumer demands.


What is your process of designing sustainable products to ensure they’re functional and stylish?

To have a sustainable design we begin with the yarns that make up the fabric. To have durable fabrics we select the ones made from long filament yarns which are more durable, produce less fiber waste in the washing machine, and even have a better hand. We pay attention to construction details to make products functional, comfortable, and permanent. This way the products fulfill their intended uses while providing comfort and not becoming damaged. Along with durable materials and construction, we produce designs everlasting in terms of style.


How would you summarize the goal of the line in one sentence?

To give the wearer a high sense of confidence with luxury only for them to know.


Do you believe other brands should move away from fast fashion and create more sustainable clothing?

Yes, absolutely. The biggest way to impact the planet through sustainability in the fashion industry is to not produce any more clothes, but even that will not undo the existing pollution that has already been set in motion many years ago. And since we must continue producing products, it is best to be as ethical as possible.


Although the demand for fast fashion is high because some styles are trendy and affordable, the price that the planet pays is too great. Because fast fashion produces fads, where clothing goes out of style rapidly and they are made poorly to save pennies in productions.


What advice would you give to other designers about becoming more sustainable?

To source only recycled materials, and produce clothing that is classic and high quality.

New Meme Greeting Card Company: “Dirty Pop Cards” Finds Humor in the Risque

You all have that one friend — you know, the one who gets your perverse sense of humor, the one who busts a gut when your raunchy side stands up. This is the friend who deserves a Dirty Pop greeting card. In a world where everyone sends memes and gifs multiple times daily, some might think the act of mailing a card is a thing of the past. Well, if that card is a pop-up pair of ta-tas or a fully erect penis — game changer! Tell me you aren’t giggling a little thinking about your most twisted friend opening 3D boobies or unfolding that special package and watching it come to life.

So, who has the balls to launch a new company with such risque merchandise? It’s the same person who defied the business-crushing COVID-19 pandemic and started a company despite the risks. Inspired by the vulgar memes that match her sense of humor, Thao Lam, CEO of www.dirtypopcards.com is doing her part to spice things up with her out-of-the-ordinary, bawdy greeting card company, Dirty Pop Cards.  Lam decided what the world was craving in these trying times was a little more laughter. With the extra challenges 2020 is creating, who doesn’t need to literally lol right now?

Lam is not going it alone. She and husband Levi Gale are the masterminds behind this widely successful venture. When creating their cards, entrepreneurs Lam and Gale seem to dig into the unspoken innuendos of imagery and language and let their minds roam to the raw aspects of human nature. They take the dirty little thought-process that plays out in most peoples’ heads and put it on paper. The result is a crass but hilarious Dirty Pop greeting card.

When you have a racy sense of humor, not everyone will get you. And even if they do, some will not be as amused as others. These facts make no impression on Lam, who says, “Quite frankly, life is too short to really give a sh*t.”  And it’s this attitude that has successfully launched a uniquely spicey card company in the most challenging times. For Lam, Dirty Pop Cards is about making people laugh. She knows her bawdy brand is not for everyone, and she and Gale have had to defend their raunchy wit by developing a bold business philosophy — “F*uck ‘Em.” Lam explains, “So, every time we see someone laughing over a DP card, we do a little happy dance. And every time we hear someone complain, we still do a little happy dance and say, F*ck ‘Em.” 

So, what’s on the horizon for Dirty Pop Cards? Lam and Gale are currently looking towards the holidays. Knowing this is the time of year when more cards than ever are sent, they can’t help but see it as a huge opportunity to spread their particular style of holiday cheer. Some might think putting a dirty spin on a holiday card is offensive, and these two entrepreneurs are ok with that. Their goal is to bring laughter to the people who appreciate their humor and tantalize a curious few. They know one of their perverse pop-up cards won’t end up in just any stocking. They also know a Dirty Pop card is the best gift ever for the more vulgar crowd on the naughty list. And it’s this group of sordid folks they cater to. 

Dirty Pop offers an array of cards that range from borderline obscene to ones that definitely cross the border. Their content is fresh, funny, playful, and, of course, downright crude. Are you looking for a unique gift that will most certainly be a conversation piece among lewd like-minds? Do you want to send a gift with crude shock value? If so, take a risk on the risque and explore what Dirty Pop Cards has to offer. You will not be disappointed. 

3 JEWELRY TRENDS TO TRY OUT THIS SUMMER

The lovely, leisurely days of summer are almost upon us, and each new season brings the opportunity to try something fresh. Even if you haven’t been able to get out and shop for a summer wardrobe, never fear. Accessories offer a quick and easy way to making the old look new again, and they also add an instant touch of individuality to any ensemble. Whether you’re looking for yourself or in the market for Mother’s Day gifts, following are three of the hottest jewelry trends to try out this summer.

LARGE BAROQUE PEARLS

Traditional, round pearls are a classic that never goes out of style, but in 2020 baroque pearls are stealing the scene. You’ll see their edgy elegance cropping up everywhere this year. The term ‘baroque’ covers every type except round, from pearls as tiny as grains of rice to ones as big as eggs, and this year, the bigger the better. The unique shape of baroque pearls gives you the chance to express your personality, and it’s one of the reasons they’re so popular right now. 

The unique, abstract quality of baroque pearls make them more laid-back than traditional ones; they give off a relaxed vibe that is perfectly suited to to lazy summer days. Avant-garde or vintage, worn layered or singly, baroque pearls make a statement and are the focal point of any outfit.

CHUNKY CHAINS

Just like with pearls, the ‘bigger is better’ trend holds true for oversize chains as well. There are so many options when it comes to wearing chains: as a necklace, they work equally well with V-necks, scoop necks and bra tops (which are another hot trend this year too). Chain chokers are super popular too, and they definitely make a statement. But even though chains look edgy — and literally have an edge — they can still be worn with eveningwear. Expect to find them in gold, silver and even black.

Chunky chains won’t be limited to necklines. You’ll notice them everywhere, from head to toe. Chain belts can be worn at the waist or slung low over the hips. For a more preppy look, you can add a chain to a second belt. Meanwhile, a chain strap for your hand bag is ultra-cool and retro, and adds a glint of glamor to any accoutrement. As for your feet, don’t be surprised to see chain anklets, some attached to shoes, others floating free and easy as a day at the beach. 

COLORFUL GEMS

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but in the summer of 2020, fashionistas are gaga for colorful gems. There’s a strong bohemian vibe going on out there so don’t be afraid to mix and match stones and metals. The more colors you add, the easier it is to coordinate with the rest of your wardrobe. Inject some color and let your inner flower child blossom. 

Colored stones are also being selected for their spiritual meaning and healing properties. Try amethyst for its psychic powers or emeralds for rejuvenation.

Hot weather makes us want to strip down to the bare minimum as far as clothes are concerned, and this only gives your accessories all the more chance to shine. Whether you decide to go modern or retro, there’s something for everyone this year. The only rule is to pick what suits your style so you can enjoy it all summer long!

Accessories to look like a celebrity

Every woman loves jewellery! There is nothing better than updating your jewellery box with the season’s latest trends, which have been inspired by the hottest celebrities. After all, a single piece of jewellery has the capacity to completely change the vibe and feel of someone’s outfit and look. A pair of glistening earrings can turn a plain dress into the main attraction. A statement ring can turn a casual pair of jeans and a t-shirt into a quirky fashion forward ensemble. Let’s take a look at some inspiring celebrity trends that can help you pick the right pieces for yourself or if you’re looking to bag an on trend gift.


Can you guess what trend has made a comeback?


Hoop earrings are back, and we could not be happier! This trend dominated in the ’90s, and then it fell out of favour for a bit. However, it is back with a vengeance. If you want to ease your way back into this trend, Jessica Alba is a good person to emulate and by searching around you can easily find some nice pieces for yourself or for a friend. If you dare to be bold, check out Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s hoop collection. She’s worn some incredible statement hoops as of late. Do you dare to be as bold as Rosie?


What’s the colour trend for the season?


When looking for the perfect colour to rock this season you should definitely be considering blue. Blue is a great colour for autumn and winter because it fits into the season’s colours yet it still has vibrancy and life in it. Moreover, it is a versatile colour – it goes with all sorts of outfits and styles. In addition to this, because there are so many different shades of blue, it means that there is a shade to suit all hair colours, all skin tones, all eye colours, and all tastes. If you are looking for a good place to start then try a necklace or a ring sporting an electric shade of dark blue. This is a great way to make a bold statement and attract attention.


Have you got statement pieces in your jewellery collection?


In addition to this, statement pendants are very much fashionable at the moment. If you are looking to buy jewellery online then you should search for a ‘cross necklace.’ These are extremely fashionable at the moment. They add a stylish and rocky element to any look. They can turn a pretty dress into an edgy outfit. There are tons of different cross necklaces available in stores at present and for that extra bit of glamour get one personalised either for yourself or as the perfect on-trend gift. Which one you opt for depends on your style and personality; there are dainty and small crosses, on the other hand, there are bold and elaborate crosses as well. There are lots of celebrities who have rocked this trend. Selena Gomez works this trend well. She is often seen wearing dainty gold cross necklaces.


Can you master the modern antiquity trend?


In addition to the colour blue and crosses, another aspect which is very much in fashion right now is modern antiquity. Nicole Richie is a master of this trend. This means that you should look for contemporary jewellery pieces that have antique aspects. These can be intricate carved designs, colours such as rusted orange and teal, tassels and alike. They give a beautiful and ornate vibe to any look. They are perfect additions to formal wear. However, their versatility means that they can be used to add a glamorous edge to a casual look as well. They are also timeless pieces which mean that they will probably never go out of fashion – and thus you need not worry about spending money on a jewellery item only for it to sit in your jewellery box and merely gather dust.


What about celebrity engagement ring trends?


From Cardi B to Scarlett Johansson; one thing these celebrities know how to get right is their engagement rings! Why not go for the ultimate gift of an engagement ring? You can easily personalise this with engravings or even by going for a bespoke ring. One trend which is beautiful and presents a wealth of different possibilities in terms of individuality is old school glamour. Vintage is well and truly back. Catherine Zeta-Jones has a beautiful antique engagement ring. Think about intricate details and ornate styles. The style of ring is delicate and feminine yet still has class and sophistication. Thus, it provides the perfect blend; it says that you’ve got sweetness but you still pack a powerful punch.


Would you ditch a classic diamond for a coloured one?


We’ve also noticed a surge in the popularity of coloured diamond rings as of late as well. Once it was all about colourless diamonds; the more transparent the better. However, thanks to celebrities going for unconventional gemstones, we have now seen this boom on the high street and in local jewellers too. Sapphire is a particularly popular choice because whilst blue is different it is still versatile. Nevertheless, one of the most beautiful and well-liked options at present is definitely yellow. Check out the stunning yellow diamond ring Heidi Klum used to wear when she was married to Seal.

So there you have it; the top trends in jewellery for autumn/winter. Remember that which style you opt to go for all depends on you and your look. You can adapt a certain trend to suit your style. After all, there are so many jewellery pieces to choose from these days. The only question which remains is; which look will you be rocking this season?
