2016 has been a strange year for America but an incredible year for books. I am awe-struck by the poetry releases this year (namely: Monica Youn’s Blackacre, Safiya Sinclair’s Cannibal, and Solmaz Sharif’s Look. ) and fiction releases have been suuuuuuper exciting as well (Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad, Brit Bennett’s The Mothers). It’s raining books not written by white men! « Read the rest of this entry »

True confession: I love back to school shopping. Office supplies make me giddy because I’m kind of Type A and very into paper goods (and planners). A new school year is like a new year, so there’s a chance to catch your breath and shift your goals and buy new glasses or shoes or pencils for the sake of education. Huzzah! « Read the rest of this entry »

Here is a Spring wishlist featuring my new affinity towards a dusty, pale blue. There’s something so calming and classic about it. Don’t you agree? Happy Spring!

I’m so very excited to offer miniature gold tins over in the One Morning shop. Since it is difficult to make blind purchases without the luxury of shopping in person, the Mini Tin Set has been created with dual purpose! A. To offer a smaller candle that you can try before committing to the biggies. B. To have the comfort of your favorite candle tucked in your bag for any & all emergencies. Traveling with a familiar scent instantly makes me feel home, happy, and grounded. I hope you like these babies. They’re excited to meet to you!
P.S. The first batch of ceramic candles sold out quickly, but luckily there are some new ones! Stay tuned for very, very exciting Spring goodies to come. February & March are going to rock… And smell super good doing it.

When thinking about winter trends, pink roses may not come to mind right away. But why not? The flower has sparked inspiration for poets and lovers and painters for hundreds of years and even Apple joined the team this fall. Rose gold has been having it’s moment for a while, too, but I’m less interested in the jewelry (except for the hoops shown above, those I would jump into a frozen lake for) and more interested in pairing the classic with the not-so-classic to create something noteworthy. Bonus points for cozy.
For example, the classic Zara trench, but in a muted, dusty muave and with shearling. Or Byredo’s Rose of No Man’s Land– named in honor of the women who served as nurses during World War I. Bonus bonus points? A portion of the perfume’s proceeds go towards Doctors Without Borders.
These items are just what I want when the weather begins to cool down and doesn’t stop. A candle that feels fresh, festive lipstick, fragrance that’s complex, and pieces that are beautiful (the botanic garden rose print!) as well as conventional (that rocker, come on!). Also… now is a fine time to announce that I’ve added four of my favorite candles to my Etsy shop. The Rose one is undoubtedly my favorite. I think I’ll burn it now while I read through this long, long list of rose-related poems.
