“], “filter”: { “nextExceptions”: “img, blockquote, div”, “nextContainsExceptions”: “img, blockquote”} }”>

Creating a Vibe Space at home has significantly helped me throughout my day, especially during the pandemic. When I had to shift from the office to working from home, I knew that creating an inspiring desk area would not be enough to support my mental wellness. So, I created a yoga/meditation practice space that included a few new pieces that would help enhance my mood when I needed to step away from work and reconnect with myself. 

I started researching a few total well-being products to add to my Vibe Space and discovered these companies that create unique goods that inspire peace and calm while also supporting the BIPOC community.

Rare Mercedes 230 Limo Heads to Auction

Classic Mercedes-Benz limousines tend to evoke images of mid-century royalty or heads of state, often waving to adoring crowds. But for every 600 Pullman that rolled out of the Mercedes factory in the 1960s and 1970, there were dozens upon dozens of slightly less glamorous limousines, the kind upscale hotels purchased to ferry guests to the airport or on shopping trips to the European cities’ boutique districts. And the kind that didn’t have V8 engines. W114 limousines performed these tasks. They were forerunners of the E-Class as it is called today, and the models that preceded the better-known W123 family>>>P.

Doggie Bag Thrift Store aims to serve animal rescues in Pittsylvania County

PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. – You’ve heard of thrift stores that support childhood cancer or even ones that support our veterans. In Pittsylvania County, there is one for dogs and the work they’re doing is making some “ruff” lives a little easier.

The Doggie Bag Thrift Store has everything from jewelry to clothing, bikes, knickknacks, and of course, pet items.

“We are very happy to have them back open,” said Pittsylvania County Pet Center Director Brent Weinkauf.

The store opened in March 2020 but spent most of the year closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“It is food. It is clothing. It’s vet bills. It’s beds. It’s warmth. It’s veterinary care,” explained store manager Penny Dawson when asked what this means to the rescued animals.

All the items are donated and all proceeds benefit the Pittsylvania County Pet Center and SPCA.

“We do what we do because we enjoy what’s going
