So have you gone through your makeup bag and wept over the ingredients in your favorite lip gloss, screaming to the heavens, "What now?!?!"
Honestly, I hope that was just me... ;)
Last week, we dove deep into how our endocrine system helps us tick: it's our Hormone Hall of Fame! And we explored some of the biggest endocrine disruptors that might be lurking in your shower and makeup bag, the Hall of Shame. These are chemicals that are perfectly legal, thanks mostly to poopy regulation here in the States. But cumulatively, they are likely having a negative impact on your health. If you missed that post, head back now. You'll want that context for the chat below.
Now, in part 2 of our 3 part series on hormone health and the goodies in your bathroom, we're taking the reins back: what to do about it all.View full article →
Hey hey! You made it!
So last week we introduced this 3 part series about personal care products messing with your hormones. This week we’re introducing you to your endocrine system, why the FDA is a little bit useless about all this, and the main culprits.
Next week we’ll talk more about what you can do to protect yourself, your family, and your environment from these baddies.
Settle in; this is a 12 minute, and you might be cranky when you’re finished because this stuff kind of sucks. But not knowing it sucks even more. And we’ve got a handy summary you can check out, plus lots more less week on tips and tricks for making it suck less.View full article →
It is La Vie en Orange's fifth (!) birthday, and we are bringing the party to you!
It's been an honor and privilege to put a party in the best people's pants for five years now, and so, we must celebrate! With undies!
And a huge thank you for making this fifth birthday possible: it's La Vie en Orange's biggest giveaway of the year!
Where will the undies be this summer season? [Above, at Pride last summer]
Good morning, Kalamazoo!
Spring is in full swing and as the weather gets warmer, we're thinking more and more about airing our fabulous laundry for all to see!
Here's where we'll be locally this season:
Sometimes we're sneaky about our environmentalism. It's a huge part of why we do what we do, but it's not necessarily why you love our undies so much. So, we keep some things on the D.L. so as to keep the panty party light and fun.
But this Earth Day, we thought, why not shed some light on the thought that went into some of our decisions. And also share the ones that we're still not sure about. Maybe you have an opinion that could help?View full article →
See LVEO undies in this POOL trade show recap video at 0:18 (don't blink!)
Every once in a while, like the grand and silly Oz, we peel back the curtain and share a little bit about the entrepreneurial journey that is La Vie en Orange, and our mission (more or less) to get in everyone's pants. Well, every-wonderful-one.
This is one of those times. Our 5th anniversary is creeping closer (ohmygosh!), and while we typically share business-y musings and lessons around that time, this is more of a catch up with a long-distance friend. So grab a cup of tea (or a milkshake, you know, depending on your mood), and settle in for like 3 minutes, while we regale you with tales and photos of tradeshows, business trips to Vegas, and marketing masterminding (bananas are involved).View full article →
La Vie en Orange is proud to announce its newest mini-collection for women and men, Ship Shape.
Inspired by a collaboration we did this winter with Superhooper.org, they suggested the Flower of Life (pictured below), and we got so jazzed about tessellations (I'm a total math geek at heart), we spent some time drawing our own for this spring's collection. The Underwear of the Month Club even got in on it! Check out their exclusive print here on Instagram.
And then rainbows. Because the brighter the better, pretty much always.
