#MondayMuse: Diane Keaton

From Annie Hall to The GodfatherManhattan to Father of the Bride, and First Wives' Club to The Family Stone, we have been captivated and inspired by the selfless, nurturing, and oftentimes eccentric characters played by Diane Keaton over the span of the past 40 years. As for her real life, Keaton speaks publicly about insecurities and body issues she suffered in her younger years, going to therapy, and wanting to look younger than her age. But, as she writes in one of her memoirs, “The exhausting effort to control time by altering the effects of age doesn't bring happiness.” At nearly 70 years old, Keaton radiates confidence, success, and - if her interviews on Ellen are any indication - is having the time of her life. 

Keaton has written three books, most recently a memoir called Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty, in which she shares the wisdom she's amassed through her life as actress, mother, daughter, artist, and international style icon. She delves into the importance of staying true to oneself, despite the pressures of other people and society, in a candid and hilarious way. A year later, her book still graces window displays and shelves front-of-store as a bestselling must read. 

Love is too weak a word for how we feel about you, Diane. We lurve our #MondayMuse.

 

#MondayMuse: Jenny Lewis

We're currently sandwiched between two weekends of a little festival that may be clogging your Instagram feed at the moment. As we looked through the lineup this year - and this is nothing new - we were disappointed to find how few women were performing. As we scrolled through the festival website, silently cheering every time a female's name appeared (Azealia Banks, Lykke Li, Florence + the Machine), one artist in particular put a huge smile on our face: Jenny Lewis. One glance at her name sent us down memory lane, pining for those high school days when we cruised around listening to Rilo Kiley on repeat.

Often compared to Joni Mitchell and Emmylou Harris, Jenny Lewis is this week's #MondayMuse for her prolific music career, marked by relatable songs that are, "very upbeat, with lyrics that are dark as night." She counts Ryan Adams and Beck among her mentors, and calls Anne Hathaway, Kirsten Stewart, and Brie Larson friends. This year is her sixth time to play Coachella, and she even brought Haim on stage to sing their new song, "Girl on Girl."

#MondayMuse: Whitney and Danielle, the Founders of Sakara Life

We've been hearing a lot of buzz lately about Sakara Life and although we haven't had the opportunity to try their meal plan ourselves, we are loving the food philosophy encouraged by the company's owners, Whitney Tingle and Danielle DuBois. Sakara Life is a healthy living program based on a diet that includes nutrient-rich, fresh, and delicious ingredients. Even if they don't deliver to your city, or if you simply aren't ready to make the commitment to one of their meal plans, you can still visit their site and follow them on social media for daily doses of inspiration on how to eat and live healthier. 

Danielle is a former model-actress turned certified holistic health coach, and her best friend and business partner, Whitney, used to work as a Wall Street financier. Eventually Whitney's insane hours and unhealthy lifestyle had her turning to Danielle for help. Together they crafted a healthy meal plan that she could maintain while balancing her busy lifestyle, and eventually all her colleagues were asking for help as well. 

Danielle and Whitney talk about healthy eating in a way that feels approachable and fun, not to mention, vital. We also love their free guide to snacking, a downloadable PDF that offers dozens of quick, healthy in-between meal options. Just subscribe to their mailing list to receive yours.
