During this time, it’s easy to look around and see how much work we have to do and skills we must relearn in order to become more sustainable inhabitants of this planet. There are some individuals who are really making strides and examples of living in accordance & harmony with nature. Vicky Salcido-Cobbe is one of them.
Sometimes you meet magical witches of the north, like Julie Clark from Province Apothecary, located in Canada. I first caught sight of this goddess at the Indie beauty Expo in Los Angeles, where I had a moment when looking at her products. I felt this high vibration coming from them — they almost seemed to levitate off the table and into my hands. I didn’t buy any products from her that day except for this little golden incense holder that was so simple, beautiful yet felt very spiritual & activating.
Is it possible to have a crush on a store? Help Your Self, a wellness boutique located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, is quite possibly my biggest crush yet. Set all in white, I walked in and felt immediately cleansed & calm. During my recent trip to New York, I had the opportunity to meet owner and founder, Catherine Foley. She is sweet, loving & so caring. So much that she even talks to the herbs in her store and thanks them for working with her.
"In this world, where life is fast and furious and sometimes tough, there’s nothing more important than intimate and authentic connections with a loving community of sisters. This monthly Q&A series is all about sharing some of my favorite women in wellness and how they shape, shift and uplift others to live life more fully. This month’s feature is the lovely Alexa Gray of Super Food Super Life. Alexa is a connector in the wellness world, she brings amazing businesses together and co-creates incredible interviews, events and programs. A trained fine art photographer based in L.A., she loves behind the scenes interviews with natural product pioneers, which inspire her readers with informative stories from the front lines of the healthy lifestyle movement. This beauty also joins us in Malibu at the IWR Retreat each year to photograph the magic that happens at our oceanside retreat. Thrilled to welcome Alexa…!"
Every single feature on this blog has been about someone or something that has caught my eye, uplifted my spirit or stolen my heart. Recently, it happened all over again with Sarah & Summer, the duo behind The Great Kosmic Kitchen. These two herbalists teach us all how we can creatively incorporate the herbs into our food and why we benefit from all that plant magic.
Recently, on a road trip up to Santa Cruz, I came across some gems, the Honey Mama super food fudge bars. It’s a bar made from sprouted almonds, organic honey, coconut oil, Himalayan salt, and then different dark cacaos from around the world (she also has a no-nut, which is equally as delicious). That’s it! It’s an organic treat that you can eat for breakfast or a snack, and feel totally satisfied.
