1. OstrichPillow Natural Lavender Candle
One of my favorite fragrances when it comes to relaxation or otherwise is lavender, and OstrichPillow’s new natural lavender candle is perhaps the best I’ve smelled so far. It’s meant to be lit up as a reminder of your own rituals – reading, meditating, or whatever you relax – and there is a set of stickers to write your intent on. The 100% soy plant wax candle has a cotton wick and is non-toxic and vegan with a burn time of 45 hours.
2. NEOM The line
I’ve been intrigued by this new model for urban sustainability since I first read about it last month. NEOM is a bold model for the future and a sustainable heart of the 2030 Vision of Saudi Arabia. It is a location that is focused on new standards for public health, environmental protection and the use of technology. 40 percent of the world’s population will be able to reach NEOM’s location on the Red Sea in northwestern Saudi Arabia in less than four hours. Currently, NEOM will serve as a living laboratory and hub for innovation, as a sustainable ecosystem for living and working and as a model for the new future (NEOM means “new future”).
3. Remember Springer
Especially her Dormant Seasons series, which captures her home as a photo essay. The collection is full of stunning black and white images, but this one impressed me the most. Maybe because it’s winter, or maybe it reminds me of areas near where I live. Springer says: “Like the earth, human behavior also revolves around the sun. We work in cycles of warm and cold, awake and sleeping, light and shadow. Winter, a time of calm before the green bloom of summer, slumbers on the surface, but when it is experienced or carefully examined, it lives with a warmth that deepens our sense of place and defines our sense of home. “
House is a low-ABV drink made from natural ingredients like fruits, herbs, and botanicals in Sonoma, California. It’s a great option if you’re in the mood for a drink somewhere between whiskey and wine. You can drink it on its own or with simple mixers like soda or tonic. Unique flavors like Spiced Cherry, Lemon Lavender and Bitter Clove will make you sign up for their membership.
5. North Norrebro rug
It was a cold winter in the northeast, and my gas bill shows it. That means grabbing a couple of layers when I feel the urge to turn the thermostat one more notch, and this wool throw is stunning. It’s the kind of home decor I’d probably hang on the wall instead of hiding it in the warmer months. Made from a custom jacquard made from 88% New Zealand wool and 12% cotton, this blanket will last a lifetime.
