A Few of My Favorite Things
Today, it is “Black Friday” in the United States. I’m indulging by staying at home and not buying any “things” that I don’t need. I am extremely intentional about what I consume and where I spend my money. I’d rather have less than more. I absolutely take Marie Kondo’s advice to heart and purchase/keep things I absolutely love in my life. The rest goes! This helps keep space for the things I truly love. There have been some new items I’ve brought into my life for the purposes of wellness, being more conscious and embracing the cozy vibes that I cherish so dearly in the cooler months. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite things as of late…
Sheepskin House Slippers
As winter approaches, I ordered a pair of sheepskin slippers handmade in Ithaca, New York from “IthacaSheepskin” on Etsy. I purchased the brown color for myself and the stone color for my partner as a gift. These are absolutely divine and the couple making these slippers has been making these since the 70’s. I love that their focus is: “We embrace a "Buy it For Life" philosophy, and aim to make beautiful, useful items that will last and age well for many years.” Since they’ve arrived, I’ve barely taken these off. I am so glad I purchased these as they are contributing to the most cozy feels in my home. Source: IthacaSheepskin Etsy Shop
My focus this winter and fall is to embrace the slower season and to indulge in rest and the opportunity to slumber during the colder season. I decided to purchase a two piece 100% stonewashed linen sleep set from Deiji Studios, an Australian clothing company in white linen. I also purchased the full length robe in Mustard (which is the color associated with the solar plexus!) I am absolutely in love with both items and will be wearing them all winter long with my house slippers.
Vitruvi Essential Oil Diffuser
I held out for a long time to invest in a nice and long lasting diffuser. I was gifted a cheap one a few years backed that clogged up within a few uses and never was used again. I had my eye on the Vitruvi Porcelain Diffuser in white for a long time before purchasing. I absolutely love it and use it every day. I also have the Ylang-ylang, Dusk and Frankincense essential oils from Vitruvi and am equally in love with the quality and foresty scent of these oils. Grateful for Vitruvi and their high standards.
I both love to try skin care products and am also a skincare minimalist. My absolute favorite line of all right now is Living Libations by Nadine Artemis, who is a literal goddess of healing naturally. I am obsessed with her Best Skin Ever in Rose, which is a cleanser, moisturizer and mega glow product all in one. Absolutely can’t recommend enough. This is all I use on my face. I also LOVE the clean shampoo and conditioner. Buy this and let me know how you love it!
