Soko Glam
C’s The Day Serum

I've tried a bunch of Vitamin C serums to fade my hyperpigmentation from acne scars. This one goes on the most smoothly and absorbs well into the skin. It feels more like a nourishing serum than a harsh Vitamin C.

21-22 Year Task Planner

Not one day goes by without using this beautiful planner. I love that it has many options for input — a calendar view, weekly view, and extra space each week for notes, too.

Material Kitchen
The ReBoard

This is now my go-to daily cutting board. It's made from recycled material and is lightweight and slimmer than my other boards, making it SO easy for handling and storage. The colorways are calming and pleasing to the eye, too (I've got the blue one).

The New Savant
Duvet Day Candle

You can tell a whole lot of love goes into developing each scent, which has more unique and complex base, mid, and top notes than other candles I've tried. This one truly smells like a good laundry day — so crisp and clean.

Lemongrass BBQ Starter 3-Pack

Of all the Omsom starter packs, this is my favorite! Lemongrass is difficult to find around where I live, so having access to these flavors is amazing.

Then I Met You
Living Cleansing Balm

This is a perfect and nourishing way to melt away your makeup, oil, dirt, grim, etc. and it smells really good too (like mango).

Chill The F* Out

When I'm stressed, I reach for ashwagandha or rhodiola. These Apothekary blends go really well with coconut or oat milk.

The Sill
Bird’s Nest Fern Nidus

I'm great in the garden but TERRIBLE with houseplants. The exception is this one, it's pretty much indestructible.

The Qi
Daily Ritual Set

This is truly a stunning and ritualistic experience . There's a beautiful flower that unfolds as your pour water for your tea. It's meditative and soothing.

West Elm
Virginia Sin Duo Candlestick Holder

The single version is one of my favorite pieces in our home. Virginia Sin makes great sculptural, functional, and minimal pieces.

Standard Baggu - Blue Cheetah

I take a Baggu everywhere with me. It can fold into a tiny little square which fits into my mini purse, which is especially magical for impromptu grocery shopping.

Kinn Studio
Dare To Love Dome Ring I

Kinn makes the most gorgeous, high quality, heirloom pieces. This ring would be a great minimal staple investment.
