GIFT SMARTER // Read your labels.

GIFT SMARTER // Read your labels.

With the holidays here we’re all thinking about what to get and what to give.

Although there is plenty to be said about the negatives of consumerism, we’ll be the first to admit that gifting is fun and rewarding. Gifting is after all, one of the five love languages.

It isn’t just about stuff, or money, its about giving something (or receiving) that shows acknowledgement and insight into our likes and personalities.

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.

All in perfect balance of course! October is a wonderful time of year...


ENDLESS SUMMER // Always seeking the sun.

ENDLESS SUMMER // Always seeking the sun.

Here in the US summer is now on the way out. If you didn't get to spend it at the beach, or living poolside you might be wondering where those sunny summer days you were craving went. (We are kind of wondering where it went ourselves!)

But... its always summer somewhere, and even if you live in the northern hemisphere- summer is just a plane ride away. When fall comes, and winter gets into full swing, we seek out the sun. Ever wonder why beaches are packed and plane flights to sunny destinations are so expensive in January? Well, the body knows what it...
