Hello! Today I am happy to be having a dreamy Aster + Bay self-care giveaway! TWO lucky winners will each get to choose THREE of Erin’s wonderful, cruelty-free beauty potions. Everything from Aster + Bay is thoughtfully produced, by hand, from raw plant ingredients in the apothecary tradition with Erin’s love and understanding of botany, plant folklore, wild harvesting and herbal alchemy at the center. So far my favorites are the brightening toner and cleansing oil, but I’d also love to try ALL of the amazing new bath salts, the hair oil and the lip stain. Beautiful stuff — made with love! More HERE. GOOD LUCK, FRIENDS! ♥

There are so many lovely things at Fine Life Co. — a wonderful new-to-me little shop run by Emily Benziger in Tucson, Arizona. Emily stocks some of my faves like Elizabeth Suzann, Hackwith, First Rite, Favor and Aster & Bay. I love the Georgie Tee, Georgia Dress, Colette tank, Woven Tote, Drip Ring, Brightening Toner, the sweet macramé plant hangers from Portland-based maker Emily Katz and all the found pottery. Lots of goodness! More HERE.

I’m loving the new NEST | GATHER shop. It’s full of beautiful clothing, jewelry, art and housewares from some fave makers like Jesse Kamm, Kaarem, Tiro Tiro, Milena Silvano, Lauren Manoogian, Daughter of Wands and lots of others. The Seattle-based team of creatives behind NEST | TOGETHER opened this online shop and their styling is ace, of course. My current favorites are this amazing jacket, this cute black dress, this soft jumpsuit, all the jewelry, this dreamy pitcher and all the beautiful objects. More HERE.

I love this beautiful new summer lookbook from Bridge & Burn. I love the road trips that these guys take for their lookbooks — it’s fun to discover new places to go check out now after living here for six years. They always find the perfect spot and really represent life in the Pacific NW well — at least for me and a lot of my friends. My favorite pieces right now are the blue warbler hooded jacket, the fleer indigo dress, audrey navy linen shorts, axson dobby polkadot shirt and hawley navy crosshatch sleeveless top. More HERE.
