Happy April! I’m feeling such a breeze of energy in the air… although it could be all the grapefruit I’ve been diffusing lately!
I’m definitely in the mood to freshen-up my space and surround myself with more of the things that help me bring in creativity, gatherings, family moments, healthy habits and ease of everyday tasks. Anything that gets in the way of that, I’m ready to let go of!
Ceramics: Something about hand made ceramics, makes me feel like every meal would be that much more special. And there are more and more ceramicists coming up (my secret dream job!)
For resources – Wu Haus shared her favourite shops for ceramics and also a really good tip: if you buy pieces that are in the same colour family – then you can mix and match, and slowly build-up a beautiful collection.
Beyond the kitchen, I’m also looking out for a ceramic bowls to make my face masks and bath bowls in.
Spring Clean Kit: If you want to freshen up your closet, you need to know about ThredUp. They’re an online secondhand clothing store that also take unwanted clothing off your hands.
Not only is it free – but you might even make a little profit too! Here’s how it works: On their website, you order the spring clean kit. A pre-stamped bag arrives at your door. Fill it up with your pre-loved goods, and mail it back to them.
They do rest. They photograph each item, they put it up for sale online and if someone buys your old favourite jeans – you get a cut. The rest gets donated to charities. Isn’t that awesome?!
The Home Edit: This is where I’ve been getting my fill of organization inspiration! If you follow my Instagram, you know I love a good pantry – and I’ve been getting tons of ideas and product recommendations from this duo.
Seriously, I’ve been avoiding The Container Store, for fear of buying it all. So I’m building-up a wish list and waiting for the next sale!
Plant Therapy: I’ve been using their essential oils for almost a year and I’m all in! For skincare, for DIY cleaning, diffusing in the air… I’m loving these oils and slowly building up my collection.
After researching different brands, I’m drawn to Plant Therapy -they’re a family business committed to sustainability, open transparency and for me, they have the best price point. Plus they work alongside Robert Tisserand, a renowned essential oil expert who puts out the best essential oil research.
My favourites are their KidSafe oils – because everything I make with oils comes in contact with my family – I want to make sure I’m creating a healthy home for my little ones.
