Post image for The Cabin: Behind The Scenes, Part 2

Today I have another beautiful batch of behind the scenes images from our December short film and catalog shoot in Maine.  I can’t get enough of these photos…this time of year, as the first flakes of snow blanket the ground around us and evenings get darker and darker, I find myself longing for a cozy cabin to retreat to.  I look at these images and dream of shaggy carpets, the crackling of a flame in a fireplace, frosted windowpanes, and someone to snuggle up with and wait out the winter.

Post image for Winter Wanderer: Style Inspiration

Today we wanted to share some beautiful photos taken by the lovely ladies of our Scottsdale Fashion Square store in Arizona!  They layered up in some of our favorite pieces and celebrated the coming of winter with a picnic in the woods.  A serene blanket of snow and a forest of birch trees created the perfect setting for a winter wonderland.  Read more »

Just something to add from someone from the other side of the world, it's that Borax is illegal to rinse down the drain in Scandinavia (Sweden). So if you wanted to try this, like I did before i read about the ingredients on the internet, try to change borax to something else instead, or just buy normal laundry detergent in the shop. Sad but true. Care about your environtment!

I have made laundry detergent with these ingredients, but cooking with water to make a liquid version. I love the simplicity of this, but... Can you use it dry with front loaders?

For me, a combination of apple cider vinegar + good moisturizer on my face before bed helps me wake up to really soft skin glow-y skin. I dilute some RAW apple cider vinegar, and use it as toner after face wash. (make sure you dilute it, you don't want to burn your face off). And then I put on some La Mer (or any heavier lotion will do). PAT the lotion on your skin do not rub. I cannot stress how important this is. Patting ensures that you do not over moisturize. Works every time! http://theinternetandtheunicorn.blogspot.com/

Post image for Inspiring Couple: Meghan Flynn & Jonathan Levitt

Meghan Flynn and Jonathan Levitt live in a beautiful home in the woods in Lincolnville, Maine, where they live predominantly off of the earth. They tend vegetable, herb and flower gardens, collect mushrooms and berries from the surrounding forests and hills, fish for mackerel and squid, and dig for clams by the ocean. Their home is a gorgeous rustic structure, and our catalog team used their property to shoot parts of The Cabin short film and catalog, including shots of the gardens and surrounding forest. Our assistant art director has been friends with Meghan since childhood, and she introduced me to this incredible couple that we knew we had to feature here on the blog. Read more »

Post image for Ayurveda Journal, Week 7: Gratitude For Your Hands

Much of what Ayurveda is about is focusing your attention inward to feel your body and realize what’s going on inside. This will better help us to figure out how to give our bodies exactly what they need in order to keep us at our healthiest. Last week, during Lilavati’s very insightful and spiritual Wednesday yoga class, she had us direct our attention directly to our hands. She spoke of how our hands do so much more than we may even realize, and how they’re an extension of our hearts — how they put into practice that which comes directly from our hearts. Read more »
