Friday Favorites // 057 ::

  1. In support of The National Parks Conservation Association and The National Park Foundation, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab has released a new scent. From BPAL: “The Theoi Nomioi are the gods and spirits of the wild: the countryside, the pastures, the forests. Under their auspices, untamed nature thrives, the beasts of the wild feast and multiply, the mountains reach to the heavens with their stony, snow-capped fingers, and the forests grow thick and dark with mystery.” You can follow the rogue un-gagged NPS Twitter account here, @AltNatParkSer.
  2. I guess I’m just feeling soft pinks and purples these days. This rhodonite Precious Threads bracelet from Alex and Ani is calling to me in dulcet, romantic tones.
  3. Spring has officially sprung at PrAna, and the collection is right up my alley. I’m particularly fond of this crochet neck top, which is Fair Trade and made from a recycled/organic fabric blend.
  4. Speaking of spring (because that’s what we do in January, I guess), Sparitual’s Inhale collection is gorgeous. Shown here is Inner Peace, which is probably my favorite of the bunch.
  5. Wave rings are back in stock at Pura Vida Bracelets. Available in gold plate and sterling silver. You can save 20% on your Pura Vida order with the code NAOMIDENSMORE20.
  6. These wooden sunglasses are on my shopping list. My current pair of shades is completely and utterly useless. Sometimes a girl just needs something both practical and fun. Love the rainbow.

  1. I love the embroidery on this top.
  2. I so desperately wish we had a bath tub. I love a good salt soak, like this one from Herbivore Botanicals.
  3. Say hello to Teami teas! Their Relax blend contains lavender, chamomile, lemon grass, orange peel, and valerian root extract. Yes, please. To save 10% on your Teami order, use the code GIRLDUST at checkout.
  4. These silver earring jackets from Species by the Thousands are effortless and beautiful.
  5. Sea Bags are made from recycled sail cloth on the working waterfront in Portland, ME. Home sweet home. Look at this sea turtle wristlet!
  6. I love the gold geometric pattern on the Desert Skies infinity scarf from Rythmatix. Products are made in the US with organic fabrics. These come in a few different colors, but the print looks so great on cream!
  7. This mossy green kaftan from Free People is totally dreamy. Sometimes I wish summer lasted just a bit longer.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Friday Favorites // 043 ::

  1. I am more of a pin person than a patch person, but this urn patch from Inner Decay is on point.
  2. Every year, Vegan Treats offers up a limited edition dark Valentine’s Day heart box, and every year I covet it. This year’s Fatally Yours box comes with a chocolate planchette. Those peanut butter cup coffins, though! Please. Order yours before February 9th.
  3. This moon throw pillow would be perfect in our bedroom!
  4. I really want to try this coconut charcoal face mask from Cocovit. My skin needs some serious love in the winter, and I’ve been neglecting it.
  5. I am just a straight up sucker for lacy things. I love this set by Triumph from True & Co.
  6. Moorea Seal always has the best selection of simple, delicate rings. This little knotted band has caught my eye.
  7. How pretty is this blouse? I feel like it would make a great transition piece for the spring. It’s a dusty and dull enough blue to blend in seamlessly with the rest of my wardrobe (I don’t do bright colors).
  8. Ritualcravt is a beautifully curated shop, with handcrafted talismans and amazing crystal specimens.  I’d love to give a home to this blue celestite cluster.
  9. One of my favorite Jamberry wraps, “Marsala Sky,” is being retired at the end of February. I’m not sure if I should buy another sheet or not. I really only use them for accent nails, so I’ll probably live.


  • Of import! My father’s second poetry book, Dust of the Road, is available to purchase now through Midwinter Fire Press, or through your local bookseller/Amazon/what have you in a few weeks. My dad has worked hard on this one, with the help of my brother and sister-in-law. I’m incredibly proud. My heart feels like bursting.
  • Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s Lupercalia 2016 collection is live! NSFW.
  • Who’s seen the X Files reboot? I’m …hesitant. My twitter feed is a mine field. Tell me it’s okay? I want to believe. Because Gillian Anderson.

Oh hey, it’s Friday! Tj and I were originally going to accompany a friend to Birka Market (because dress up!), this weekend, but he ended up having to travel out for work, instead. Boo. I’m taking advantage of the time alone to do this week’s school work. So much for an exciting weekend. What are you up to?

Sometimes I feel a little sorry for those of you in warmer climes, even with snow on the horizon. One of my favorite things about living in New England is getting to experience all four seasons fully. Each month here breathes differently. Fall, in particular, brings with its sights and scents the strongest sense of nostalgia for me. I will visit so many places in my lifetime, but this will always be home. I am thankful that Maine is like Vermont in so many of the best ways.

Friday Favorites // 038 ::

  1. This gorgeous vintage-inspired dress will be available for purchase in November from ModCloth. Totally swoony.
  2. These hand painted amethyst runes are lovely.
  3. I think this sweet rose vine crown would be a nice addition to any headpiece collection.
  4. Julep’s November Maven collection is perfect. Matte metallics! I chose “Cheyenne” (auburn) and “Sonia” (steel blue), which will both see me through the winter. I can’t wait to combine them with some of my Jamberry nail wraps. If you’ve been on the fence about becoming a Maven, it’s a great time to join. New Mavens can receive a four piece metallics welcome box for free (+ $2.99 shipping) when they sign up using this link. A fully customizable Maven subscription is $24.99 a month, and it’s easy to skip out on the collections you don’t like. Mavens also earn points with every purchase, which can be used on future boxes.
  5. I love this delicate US-made opal ring.
  6. I’d like to try to make barmbrack. It’s a good time of year to start using the oven again. I’m not normally a fruited cake kind of person, but this recipe makes it look alright. I’d probably just use a combination of dried cherries and cranberries, and omit the raisins altogether.
  7. This wool-blend skirt from PrAna is a serious wardrobe essential.
