Peace ✌🏼 and welcome to Elevated Thoughts' Latest: Quarter 2 edition!! I've been staying pretty busy creating stuff for the brand; getting photoshoots done, making new content, drawing up new designs, etc. I hope you've been staying busy as well, it's been a pretty hectic start to the new year but I hope everyone is staying as optimistic as possible amidst the political turmoil, racial injustices and crazy weather some states have been enduring.

We have a new products release this upcoming May! As mentioned before, we're currently doing biannual releases; our joint Spring/ Summer collection release falls on May 1st.
We'll be releasing some a new design in both regular t-shirts and tank tops, along with new stickers and possibly more so be sure to stay tuned!
Due to major delays, we won't be able to launch a product release in May 2021. I know, I know. I'm as disappointed as you guys are but I can't rush the process of designing; it's meticulous and I want to make sure I bring you guys the highest quality of designs. However, the good news is that it is only a delay! The (new) official product release date will be on the first date of Summer: 6/20/21. Be sure to stay tuned!
Back in February, we began donating to causes we support. 10% of every sale goes and will continue to go to causes we support; non-profit organizations that deal with combating racial injustices, supporting equality, fighting poverty, climate change, and so on. We're happy to be able to give back to causes we support. The best part is that this is only the beginning!
Have you checked out our PRSPCTV blog series? It's a quarterly blog series that I started which consists of breaking down philosophical quotes. Philosophical quotes are relatively short, but pack a very deep message. These quotes are usually from Stoic philosophers. For those unfamiliar with Stoicism, Stoicism started off as a school of philosophical thought in Greece, back in 3 BCE. However, since then, Stoicism as grown into a way of thought that I've come to admire and try to live by. Stoicism is about taking each moment as it comes; embracing the present, without allowing external factors control your feelings negatively. Our latest blog (PRSPCTV Blog Series III) deals with a quote by Hispano Roman philosopher Seneca. Check it out and let us know your perspective on it (pun intended). We're also working on creating the PRSPCTV Podcast, In the meantime, check out out Introduction to PRSPCTV Blog which breaks down what the blog is about, what it means and how I was inspired to start it!
I revamped the website! I added a few pages: a Lookbook, Giving Back, and a Help Center. Our Lookbook can be found on our Main Menu; it provides a look at our gear being worn by models, so people have a realistic idea at how the products would look like when being worn. Our Giving Back is also on our Main Menu, listed under About; it's a breakdown at which organizations we've donated to since we started donating. The Help Center (located on the Footer Menu) is the go-to for any general information on products, shipping, contact info and so on. I also reorganized our website, which includes a Resources page located on our Main Menu. Our Resources page includes our COVID-19 response, the link to our blogs, References, and the Elevated Thought$ Podcast by my good friend Sam The Archer. These are essentially the same links we previously had on our Main Menu before, but we added them to the Resources page to prevent from cluttering.
