Resources, websites & cool web things

Resources and web things - Pura Vida Sometimes

A few resources and cool web things that are too good not to share, and which Pura Vida Sometimes subscribes to, visits often, and wholly recommends. Please also visit the PVS Shop for lifestyle and items, books, and clean personal care products


Thoughtfully Magazine – interesting to read, gorgeous to see, and it informs the sort of lifestyle I like to talk about – great recipes, natural beauty, living organically, with a hint of empowerment.
The Skimm – I seriously love The Skimm – it’s the best way for busy people with a sense of humor to catch up on the news. I read it while I’m walking the dog in the morning (not very mindful, I know, but my body has auto-pilot) or having breakfast. Lots of world, and national news, with pop culture – cool delivery – and it’s not depressing or aggravating like TV news. Plus, it’s free.


The Adelante Movement – Where Latinas unite socially, economically and politically.
Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN) – An internationally recognized non-profit organization that fights lymphatic diseases and lymphedema through education, research and advocacy.
Celiac Disease Foundation – Drivingdiagnosis, treatment and a cure for celiac disease to improve the lives of all people affected by celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
Quiet Revolution: a Susan Cainled initiative dedicated to unlocking the power of introverts for the benefit of us all, with resources for parenting, career, social interaction and more.
