While we were in Brooklyn over the holiday, we purchased two bars of Saipua soap from a beautifully curated flower and plant shop, GRDN. I bought the “saltwater” bar for myself; Tj liked the cedarwood and mint.
Another holiday favorite? Those black lava sea salt caramels that Tj put in my stocking. They are so, so good.
I received a sample of Root Science RS facial scrub in a Petit Vour subscription box a few months back, and it’s become one of my favorite facial care products. I use it once a week. If you sign up for a box, let Petit Vour know that email@example.com sent you.

Well, holiday shopping. I suppose it’s time.
I’ll be at work because it’s Black Friday, and that’s life. Do you do the Black Friday thing? If I wasn’t required to leave the house in order to get paid, I’d stay in pajamas all day and eat leftover apple crumble. Retail has worn me a little thin.
Consider this the official girldust gift guide for the holiday season. Gifts for slightly weird girls.

‘Tis the season (already!), friends. I realize it seems a little early, but this year, Timothy and I have decided to start a little earlier so our actual holiday time can be spent focused solely on our family, friends, and food.
ModCloth has welcomed yuletide with a snow flurry of gift guides. There’s a little something for everybody! You can browse their pre-determined categories, or shop curated collections by a handful of bloggers. Here are three of my favorites, for giving and receiving.
That cardi is my personal favorite, and is on my wishlist! How cute would it look with a shimmery gold polish and my favorite coffee mug? Pair those votive holders with some clean burning, paraffin-free votives (or try beeswax!) and a grounding body butter, maybe for your favorite hostess or a friend who needs a little more peace in her life. The journals make a great stocking stuffer, or would suit a naturalist-themed gift for a co-worker. I’m thinking twig pencils and maybe some butterfly pushpins (both also from ModCloth).

We’ve returned safely from Philadelphia! Travel takes a lot of out of me, so this will be a quick and lazy post. I’ll share about my trip soon, though, I promise. Right now I just need to watch King of the Hill and eat chicken wings.
Thanks for your reading and love. These last two weeks have made me feel incredibly fortunate. I know so many good, kind, generous people.
I am maybe a little bit obsessed with this time of year. Sparks at my fingertips.
While in Philly, I visited the LUSH spa and purchased a huge bar of Fairy Ring soap. It’s perfect. And yes, I will tell you all about it. Chicken wings, first, friends.

We’re going to call this a bit of an early birthday wishlist. Of course, most of my Friday Favorites are more wishful than anything else. It seems that my brain has gotten used to the fact that it’s fall, so I’m okay with embracing the weather and the mood. It really does suit me a little better, anyway. I bet you can tell by the buffalo plaid and the whiskey that I am definitely there.
I am looking forward to wool layers and proper adult beverages.
I am uncertain as to what I am doing with my hair.
That new Seibei tee steals the show. I can’t even handle it. PS. It is already mine.
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Naomi, and this space is made of girldust. This blog is a picture of my comfortably scattered life on the coast of Maine. I'm trying to be a slightly better version of myself every day. I like old houses, reading, the ocean, ghost stories, and museums. You can learn a little bit more about me here.
