Nature has the ability to bring us back to our roots, making us feel calmer, more relaxed, and grounded. Read more »

I’m currently going through a decor phase where I want to collect all kinds of ceramics. I keep searching and searching for unique vases, bowls, cups, plates, you name it. I love the idea of filling a whole shelf with ceramic vases for plants, like my inspiration tear above, or having that unique coffee cup just nestling in the kitchen.

During the cold months of winter, it’s sometimes hard to stay positive. The days are shorter and many of us don’t spend much time outdoors, meaning we’re seeing much less of our main energy source – the beautiful sun!

Over the holidays I was given a gift from Kim Krans from The Wild Unknown. As soon as I opened the box the smell refreshed the air around me.

Hanging delicately from a tie dyed ribbon was this quote:
“Strike another match, start anew”
