Genius idea from this women run business in Rustenberg, South Africa. Repurpose School Bags takes plastic bags and turns them into backpacks that have a solar charging panel, providing kids with up to 12 hours of light by which to do their homework. Many kids in South Africa walk to school and have no electricity. […]
I'm Alexia, Alex, Lexi or Lex, depending on who you are. I'm mom to Mia, Maxim and Milan, wife to Darian, the co-creator and CEO known as Fancy Pants at Vuka Energy Drinks. I'm a marathon runner, triathlete, musician and writer, wanna be rock star, all time actress, creative, vocal and sometimes just a little crahayzy. I think that's all. One day I plan to spend most of my time on a boat in the Carribean. Oh, and baciamille means a thousand kisses in Italian. I don’t know any other words in Italian.
My husband was recently looking for a more manly, huge-mega-never-run-out-size body wash and very excitedly told me that he’d found a huge bottle on Amazon. This morning I got into the shower only to find this: He says he didn’t even see that it’s called “Swagger” but at least now I know that he’s got some. […]
Loving the latest campaign on Sevenly – t-shirts that support Girl Up – an organization that raises money to buy bicycles for girls in Malawi so that they can safely attend school.

Some mornings, when the kids have helterskelter left for school, I sit down to a quiet breakfast and try silence on for size. I’m not sure if it fits me.

On 11/2/2014 I ran my 8th marathon. 5th New York Marathon. And I finished in 4:45:51 – the second fastest marathon I’ve ever run. It was also the most fun I’ve had running a marathon. I literally had a wall to wall grin the entire way. But this marathon was different, it wasn’t about time, […]
The current campaign on Sevenly. So powerful. Teen suicide prevention. Could not be more poignant..
Just bought a few pieces from this Cape Town label Lalesso. I’m loving the African inspired design and the creative shapes they’re crafting which really speak to the Cape Town girl in me. Makes me think of flowy days on Camps Bay beach and the casual cool of my Mother City 🙂
