Friday Favorites // 049 ::

  1. I am 99% certain I need this tee.
  2. New elderberry soap from LUSH!
  3. Someone on my Instagram feed recently posted an excerpt from the introduction to this book, and now it’s officially on my reading list. This author has my dream job, and I often wish I had been better prepared and motivated immediately coming out of undergrad with my Asian Studies degree. I’m hoping working towards my Museum Studies MA will help push me in a workable and satisfying direction. I’m helping with research for a potential exhibit at my internship right now, and it’s sort of nice to be working with Japanese history (and maybe a little folklore), again.
  4. I’m back in the essential oils game! If you’re curious, check out my YL page for more information. When I first started out with Young Living three years ago, Valor was my favorite oil blend, but it was constantly sold out. They’ve since released Valor II, and I am all about it. It’s a blend of Young Living’s exclusive Northern Lights Black Spruce and Idaho Blue Spruce essential oils, along with Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Vetiver, Cistus, Bergamot, Cassia, German Chamomile, and some others. This blend is calming, uplifting, and perfect for diffusing. If your “sacred space” (whatever that might entail) needs a refresh, this is the oil blend for the job. I really can’t talk it up enough. You can purchase it retail or by becoming a member. Let me know if you have questions!
  5. It’s almost flip flop weather! I hated flip flops for the longest time until I discovered Sanuk. Do yourself a favor this summer. I’ve raved about it before, but your feet will thank you.
  6. These stunningly simple hugging ear hoops by Melissa Joy Manning are available in rose gold, gold, and white gold from Free People. Made in the US. I’m falling more and more in love with bare basic jewelry like this. Is it an age thing? Give me something lovely that I can wear daily with anything, and I’m happy.
  7. This is the year of the slackline. Fingers crossed, but I’ve got a lot of backyard motivation right now. I’m really only familiar with Gibbon, but if anyone has any brand recommendations or best practices, I am all ears.
  8. You just can’t beat a knit dress, and I love this black and gray striped one.
