We’re all about consuming less and making the things we own last, and when we add something to our life, we wan to make sure that it’ll truly bring us joy! Reflecting on what new additions did just that over the past year is something we hope will help with making choices in the following year (and maybe you’ll find some of our recommendations helpful, too?), so we wanted to share our favourite beauty, fashion, home, making and miscellaneous additions from 2018. We’d also love to hear, what did you add to your life this past year that you’d buy, gift or make again and again in a heartbeat?Read More

Tell me, what are your essentials you can't do without?Read More
When you read this post, I'm probably on my way to our annual family ski vacation which feels like an excellent opportunity to share some of my current beauty favourites. During the colder months, my skin is typically on the drier side, so I'm particularly partial to nourishing products. Here's what I've been using lately – it's also what I'm bringing with me for the next couple of days in the snow!Read More
Can I introduce you to one of my absolute favourite beauty products? The packaging is by far not the only thing that's truly "green beauty" about Weleda's Skin Food – nothing but natural ingredients create one of the most effective all purpose moisturizers I ever met.
