BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
I live in Greenpoint and work in Williamsburg. I value my local community – and if I’m being honest, I’m a bit lazy. Arguably, staying local is one of the ways I find extra time in my day. Pas Mal and Adaptations are two of my favorite shopping destinations within a 1 mile radius of me.
My favorite part of my trip here was the mix of experiences I had. I went to Rovinj, a sleepy old town close to the of Italy. Then to Obonjan, an island retreat full of yoga classes, healing workshops, and live music. Followed by Dubrovnik which for better or worse, is most recognizable as Game of Throne’s Kings Landing. So truffles>yoga>history.
HANAHANA SHEA BUTTER
I’m in love. Tis the season for dry skin, and this stuff has my back. It also come in a bunch of great scents (Vanilla Lavender, Lemongrass, Eucalyptus...yum!)
I don’t use it every day, but it’s a cool techy way to manage breath. (And I love that overlap between tech and wellness.) Whether or not you're using it, we should all take an extra few minutes in the day to just breathe.
I live in their jumpers. I really value comfort and simplicity. More than anything, being comfortable makes me feel like I can do anything, and that's powerful.
I love to boogie. Not only is it super fun, but I think there’s a lot we can learn about consent and empathy from being on the dance floor with other people.
I’m obsessed. How did they capture puberty so perfectly?! I wish there were more sex-positive approaches to talking about those awkward years.
JITTERBUG PERFUME BY TOM ROBBINS
It’s my favorite book. A must-read! It's a wonderfully-weird adventure, and you'll never look at beets the same way.
JAMES BLAKE’S RENDITION OF A CASE OF YOU
It’s my song-on-repeat right now. But my music taste varies a lot, I’m also into Bruno Major, Kharaughbin, Lady Bug by Bumblebee Unlimited, and Shopping Cart by Parallel Dance Ensemble.
