If you are anywhere near Denver you hopefully already know about the Denver Flea. It takes place a few times a year, features super trendy vendors, lots of alcohol, tasty food trucks, and loads of entertainment.
I worked with a vendor at the last Flea to offer diastasis checks for women but this last one I went straight up as a blogger to the VIP shopping night. I got over the chill in the air with a few cocktails and saw a load of friends. It was a fun, festive occasion.
You do need to be cautious because since this is Denver Flea folks the ability to imbibe is fierce. And it is easy to swipe on a Square when you are slizzard. Also there is some douchiness around on the edges but you are big boy or girl and know how to avoid that IF you want.
Head to the Flea tonight for the UnCorporate party ($35 entry). Hint, hint, hint… Passport folks, check your email for a 2-for-1 deal to attend. The Flea will also be opened on Saturday and Sunday ($5 entry) with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Rocky Mountain MicroFinance Institute and Reading Partners.
There is a very good chance you will see me around there this weekend. I got some more Irish Coffees to say hello to, lounging, and I really, really want that be hippy hat plus maybe some more holiday gifts.
Disclosure: I was comped entry to the VIP party and given a canvas tote plus two fives to post about this shindig online which was silly since I posted about it online last flea with zero Flea motivation. All opinions are my own.
What a fun collection to dive into the holiday season with Soybu. Here is the signature print for this collection:
Of course I went for the more holiday feel with the collection as I used the Paris Free Flow sweater in Malachite and Tory Legging in Black to complete this outfit. The holiday was indeed Halloween.:
The staples in this collection are versatile between active wear and casual looks. Here is the Yvette Tunic in Storm and my absolute favorite Killer Caboose Leggings in Charcoal in the middle of a snowmelt creek:
For a true winter holiday staple check out this Rheana Vest in White:

This time as a Soybu Community Leader has been pretty nice. Thank you Soybu for the opportunity. Thank you for the clothes. Thank you for allowing me to interact with others curious about this line.
I have to admit I was REALLY excited to get to choose from the Mandala collection. Then I got the catalog and most of the things I was going to check out were off-limits since buyers had gobbled these pieces up. I got the dregs, but for dregs they are super cute.
Here is what I received the day I was leaving for the Santa Fe Yoga Festival. As you can see I went for blacks and blues. There were really no oranges or funky combinations to choose from even though they are all over in the collection!
I also went more casual with this collection with these Faux Leather Hayden Leggings and the Lena Wrap
And lastly new favorites of mine are the Debbie Tank and Angie Tank in Terra Blue. Great size and proportions with thick shoulder straps that are not cumbersome for the Debbie and flirty minimal strapping for the Angie.
The Mandala Collection is a fun collection. Just be sure to actually get your hands on it.

Soybu has been all over my world recently. This is a great company representing many of our bodies and recently said hello to the Fitbloggin world with outfits for speakers and a fashion show. However not everyone made it to Fitbloggin so as a community leader let me show you what they have in-store and online with their Swim and Orchid collection.
The SWIM Collection. Anything with a rash guard can be fantastic with the Colorado sun that hits us from up high. This is a sweet guard and I love wearing orange in the water. for safety on the arms. The fit on this is great with an easy neck zipper. Rosalie Rash Guard Mod Nouveau
I have to admit to being nervous about a top. I genearlly wear a medium top with Soybu but was transitioning to weaning my son when this tankini arrived and guess what it did not fit at first but it does not. Skimpy, but it does. Keep that in mind if you are blessed in the chest. Rio Tankini Mod Nouveau
And I love this tie bottom. The fit is fantastic and the ties are fun. These images are at a clothing optional hot spring so this allows me to be discreet when moving around this place. St Lucia Tie Bottom Mod Nouveau
I also played in the Orchid Collection and stayed with staples that I know work for me. Here are two of my absolute favorite stapes from Soybu and one that I hope becomes a staple. I love the Gigi pullover. I ordered a size up before but this does run true to size and thumbholes! Then the Alecia Tank, it gives great coverage for my short height and does not unleash the girls on unsuspected yoga students. Finally the Killer Caboose Legging in Charcoal. The material difference between charcoal (power flex) and the black is noticeable. I prefer the softer feel of the charcoal.
And one more of the Orchid print but in a different color. This is the Alyse Hoody in Orchid but it is only available in plus size at this time.
Please feel free to reach to me about this company or any suggestions that I can relay to them. I am a proud community leader with the Colorado-based company.

Blue Diamond sent me some of their Almond Coconut as one of their Tastemakers and asked for a recipe. Unfortunately with the carageenan in two places in the ingredient list this is not a product that my whole family can enjoy. It does upset one tummy in our home. For the other three of us it is fair game for now.
I looked at the product and decided to make what I do with coconut water. This idea came around during my first birth when I knew I would want something easy and hydrating.
Simple – grab your milk, vanilla, and cinnamon
Pour into paleta or ice pop molds. I stir with a chopstick after I add a couple of drops of vanilla and a dusting of cinnamon.
Let freeze and enjoy. This is easy and a great treat to stay hydrated without much sugar as the temperature warms up.

I am a proud Soybu Community Leader and advertise their clothes weekly in my classes. I am glad that in late May I will get to host an evening at their Denver-area store to share this brand with folks IRL on 28 May. More details to follow but expect discounts, a gift, and loads of treats.
Here are some snapshots for their latest line and how it seamlessly fits into my lifestyle with my little ones.
The powerflex fabric of this legging has been super comfy and a fave to wear to my classes lately.
I am a shorty (5’3″) and this Alecia tank has been the best fit since the bombshell tank for my shorter torso so that I am not giving my yoga students a view of all the cleavage. This is my new go-to tank for when I am moving around a good deal.
This sweater is hands down my favorite thing to come out of the line. I had no idea how the fit would be so went up a size and hit is a bit looser in the middle and hem than I anticipated so be sure to order true to size. You can barely see them in this picture, but thumbholes!!
Check out Soybu to see the Mod Nouveau collection as well their new addition of plus sizes for women, the men’s line, and the girls line. My boys are still SOL but these little animals get active in anything that they wear so it is no big deal that the rest of the family is covered.
