RESOLUTIONS RECONSIDERED // It's in the details.

A New Year! A New You!

We’ve all heard it, but we can’t be the only ones who find this idea to be somewhat stressful.

Yes, the new year is an exciting reason to set new goals. Yes, we are enlivened by the unknown offerings a new year brings. And yes, each year we want to be the better version of ourselves. But today, in a slight stupor from post holiday stimulation, the idea of doing an overhaul seems a bit overwhelming. 

The reality is that a new year is just a new day,...


COCONOG // Holiday cheer gone coconuts!

COCONOG // Holiday cheer gone coconuts!

The holidays are here and we couldn’t be more excited! It’s true that we don’t save being festive for December - but, there is of course something very special about it all. When the cooler weather kicks in and we find a few more reasons to treat ourselves in all the ways - we get excited. Cozy food, cozy drinks, and cozy times hanging out with friends and family. It’s the best!

All this coziness might not lend itself to feeling particularly excited about some of the healthier options - like coconuts. Coconuts are rightfully associated with the...

The psychological benefit of gifting is a real thing, and it is an important part of human interaction. Gifting can actually help define relationships and strengthen...

THE NEW DAILY GRIND // Your creative caffeine fix.

We are all about the ritual.

Everyday is made up of a series of rituals that keep us grounded, present, and feeling good. Staying on course with healthy habits is really important during the holiday season.

From the way we approach skincare to the foods we consume, we try to make every decision intentional and mindful. Rituals are one of the best ways to do that. Take the guessing out, take the time out, and focus on the moment.

One of our favorite rituals is our morning cup of coffee. Caffeine often gets a bad rap,...


THE NEW NUDE // Why we're inspired to join the #makeupfreemovement!

THE NEW NUDE // Why we're inspired to join the #makeupfreemovement!

Don’t we all envy the effortlessly chic vibe of the French women? Understated. Classic. Sexy. That seemingly impossible to achieve just rolled out of bed look? Yes, we do.

But it isn’t about the look. There is a deeper analogy here.

You will never feel beautiful, confident, and vibrant unless you are comfortable in your skin first- both literally and figuratively. Women have been preconditioned to believe that in order to be beautiful we need to cover up our face. Slather it with makeup and only then will you be ready to step out of the house.
