Get Your Zen On With Glow Yoga

 Glow Yoga.  Glowga.  Glow with the flooow, zen masters.  This chill exercise trend is here to stay, and I’m jazzed such a party product can help motivate.  It’s a fun incentive when getting fit & centered, ya know?  Mood lighting is welcome in my world ANY time, and society says exercise classes are no exception.  The following Glow Yoga photos caught my eye and inspired me to attend my first class comin’ up here real soon (I’m looking at you, One Down Dog!)…

glowyogaThat rad Glow Yoga shot above is by Matt LaVigne.  I wanna learn how to do that!  Plus adding the laser Party Light was a nice touch – so doing that with ours.  Let’s take a moment to review why Glow Yoga’s such a hit these days:

  1. Glow products are dang affordable, so it won’t break the bank for instructors.
  2. Packed classes, instructors – nuff said!
  3. Once again – incentive.  If ya need a push to get to class in the first place (hi, that’s me), glow kinda tricks the brain into thinking you’re partying…when actually you’re treating your mind, body and soul really well, like 100%.  Sign me up.
  4. In addition to glow yoga, glow aerobics classes are popping up everywhere.  Step it up a notch and check out these lights in motion!  Courtesy of Fitness-Freak.com:

glowyoga3glowyoga2glowyogaCan you dig it?  I sure can.  Subscribe to our blog now and get an update later when we’re back with Part 2:  a full report and pics from our glowing class at One Down Dog.  Seriously, mates, if I can do this, anyone can.  Beginner’s yoga here I come, and I have no doubt it will be fun…

‘Til next time, light loves.

Frozen Party Crafts Let It GLOW! PART 2

Let’s talk Winter.  FBL’s been in the mood since Summer when we debuted Frozen Party supplies, and from here on out, it’s SNOWFLAKES GALORE, leading to inspired ideas perfect for a Frozen party.  If it’s unique party treats you seek, look no further.  Light-Ups are a delight, whether placed in goody bags alone, or add a little DIY flair to ’em.  Look how I accentuated our already-awesome Fiber Optic Hair Clips:

To get our year-round Frozen Party started, FBL went to the craft store.  Got some feathers in Frozen party colors, plus glitter snowflake appliques.  Next with a 12-pack of Fiber Optic Hair Lights, I simply started gluing.  Line up the feathers, spread them out like fan, glue into place, then tack on a snowflake decal to top it off.  Repeat until you have enough decorated hair clips for all your RSVP’ed party guests and prepare to impress.

* Our last light craft shows off the light sparkles quite nicely – check that out.)

Another Frozen party favor must is our Sparkling LED Snowflake Wand!  We’ve worked hard at FBL to keep its quality excellent, and its cost super affordable, so we’re proud to say this is an awesome product.  I plan to tie some shiny curled ribbon to the tops of mine for extra flair as it’s swished around, ya know, as snow queens do…

Catch My Party knows all about lighting up party favors – how cute are these goody boxes?  To recreate the soft winter glow they’ve got goin’ on, I recommend Color Change LED Ice Cubes, OMG, so totally Frozen:

We used the those same LED Cubes as cupcake toppers too – love!

Here are more of my favorite DIY Frozen party ideas:

A Girl & A Boy made pipe cleaner snowflakes – how perfectly simple.  Kids love pipe cleaners ’cause they’re easy to manipulate, and parents love pipe cleaners because NO MESS.  This is a great D.I.T. project at a party (do-it-together, y’all), plus accentuate your ‘flakes further by using sparkly pipe cleaners!  I just can’t get enough sparkles.

Magically Made crafted DIY snowball strands.  I so wanna make these!  Simply put:  “Thread cotton balls on clear plastic twine, spacing them a few inches apart, and secure each with a knot on either side as you string.”  Aye aye, captain.  Wouldn’t this make a great backdrop for a DIY photo booth?  A party just ain’t a party without a decorated spot for photo opps.

If cotton ball snow decor is not enough, consider adding disco balls at various lengths and let natural light do it’s thing, reflecting and dancing all around you!  This makes me so happy, I can’t even put it into words…  Cheers, Victoria Elizabeth Barnes!

My Texas Nest constructed icy cool front door decor to greet party guests.  This would look awesome with some color changing Light Up Snowflakes in the mix.

The Crafted Sparrow created a rustic dainty snowflake display.  I’d love to make a hanging mobile like this.  Or expand its size and make it a doorway curtain to walk through, whoa, YES…
