HAPPY NEW YEAR, ELK BABES!

If you’ve been keeping up with us on social, via blog, or you’re a regular to our “New Arrivals” page, you know that 2018 was a whirlwind for Elk. But ladies, hold on tight, because 2019 is gearing up to be our best year at Elk yet, and we can hardly contain our excitement.

We all know what January means. New beginnings, new resolutions, new habits. Sometimes they’re annoying to start or consider, other times they’re revolutionary. We certainly don’t believe in doing things small. Truth is, we’re on a full-blown mission to become something original, inspiring, and game-changing.

2019 is about it get its booty handed to Elk ;) So to kick things off, we came across this epic little mantra to set the tone for the new year.

“You are presented with two choices: evolve or repeat.”

Here’s what inspiring us this month on the path to an evolving, revolutionary, and game-changing year...


PHOTO VIBES

GIVE US ALL OF THE ART! All of it. These photos are more than a vibe, they’re completely awe-inspiring and moving. We can’t get enough!

BOOKS, BLOGS + OTHER THANGS

Our January book pick goes out to Sugar Run by Mesha Maren.

The gist? In 1989, a 17-year-old is sentenced to life in prison. When she’s released 18 years later, she finds herself reeling from the unexpected freedom and determined to turn her life around. Talk about badass. Who is going to read it with us this month?

MOVIN’ + GROOVIN’

If you’re not aboard the Robyn train, you should be. All of her tracks are gleaming with inspiration and heartfelt lyrics. Basically, she’s all the singing into your hairbrush vibes, or a karaoke sesh go-to during a road trip with your bestie.

Check out her Spotify here.

If you’re a yogi, you probably well aware of @aloyoga, notoriously seen on Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. If we could afford all of workout gear to be one from place, it’d be Alo. This month, they’re giving away a free 30-day access to Alo Moves, the video platform of Alo Yoga which allows you to try thousands of classes led by world-class instructors. It’s a serious win.

If you’re looking to bring entrenuprunal goals to life this year, she’s got your back.

HOROSCOPES

Calling all Aquarius cuties! Here’s what the stars have in line for you this month:

There’s a Mercury-Uranus trine to take advantage of on January 14. When Mercury is involved with your home planet, your mind is open to all the possibilities the world has to offer. You can’t wait to take your next step!

Uranus goes direct in powerful Aries on the sixth, sending a shock to the system in the best way possible. If you’ve been resting on your past achievements and accomplishments, this is a reminder that you can do better. Be the change you talk about wanting to see in others, Aquarius.


That’s all for now, Elk babes. But check back in 2019 for more inspiration, horoscopes, music, and trends!

xx
