I started using Twitter a few years ago when I started my first blog, The New Vegan. I found it overwhelming, and did not have the energy or motivation to figure it out.
When I started The Yogi Movement, I decided to give it another try, and now I’m hooked. I can’t get enough of Twitter! The only way I can explain Twitter is that it’s like a whole other amazing world. There are so many things happening like Instapapers, Tweet Chats, and just all kinds of fun finds to discover.
Since I’ve become more involved in the Twitter world, I have come in contact with some awesome people, shops and start-ups that I wouldn’t have found out about anywhere else, and wanted to share that in the blogosphere….
“PERFECT REJECT – Tattered, torn and loved are plush toys, unique as sculptures, evoking our empathy by joyfully reflecting our human imperfections. Imperfect means I’m perfect/you’re perfect – just the way we are.”
When I discovered this shop I completely fell in love. These stuffed animals are rescued from thrift stores and then completely revived into these collectable items. Don’t you just want to cozy up next to one of them? I wonder what they would say if they could talk?
I love these mats because they are eco friendly, slip resistant, and they have these inspirational sayings on them. This one is my favorite, but the are all inspiring and fabulous. I love them on Twitter, but they’re also really fun to follow on Instagram (which is where I snagged this pic)!
This place is AWESOME! They create magnets, iphone cases, and ipad covers from your Instagrams! How funny that I found them over Twitter. They run some really fun contests and giveaways! I love this idea so much!
These are handmade mala’s crafted in Bali. The Mala Collective provides numerous jobs for locals from the planting of the rudraksha trees, to the harvesting stage. It’s also fair trade, so all the employees benefit from profit sharing of world wide sales. They also donate to many organizations, so I love that by purchasing these beads you help so many people in return.
“The charitable mission is Being in the World. We chose this phrase because it encapsulates not only our individual corporate existence but also expresses that we are connected to, continuous with, and inseparable from the world around us.”
I love a tea & spice shop that connects with yoga philosophy!
Mahamosa contributes 50% of its annual net profits after taxes to support charitable causes including hunger, poverty, education, environment, clean water, animal/natural life welfare and other causes.
I really do feel like I have a whole other family on Twitter, and would love to connect with you over there! Give me a shout out at @theyogimovement so that I can return the favor!
