On the Mind

On the Mind

If you've ever given our podcast a listen (The Wakened Podcast) you've most likely heard a segment we do in the beginning of an episode called "Learning or Loving", where we share something we've either been learning or loving recently. It could be a book, a recipe, a show, a hobby, a random item -- whatever! That segment inspired this new series which I'm calling "On the Mind". Really these posts will be a place for me to share things I have been enjoying but also things on my mental wishlist. Maybe something that's caught my eye or that I'm hoping to purchase or try out. I'm excited because I always love sharing things I'm particularly finding value in or am interested in bringing into my life. So to kick us off, here are 6 things on my mind as of late.

1. Another 13 perfume by Le Lebo // I read a book last year about Parisian women and their approach to style, love and life. The French say you should find your signature scent by the time you're 30 and stick with that for the rest of your life. I do enjoy switching things up periodically but I liked the sentiment of having a signature scent that could be attached to you and hold memories for yourself and others. Earlier last year, I discovered Another 13 by Le Lebo and fell in love. I don't know if that'll be my signature scent forever, but it definitely is for now.

2. Scalloped jute rug // I just got this rug for our bathroom and I'm so happy with it! I am a huge fan of jute rugs. (There are several in my home.) I went with the black trim option to bring a little contrast into our tiny bathroom and I am smitten! They also have other color ways and sizes for these darling jute rugs.

3. Marshall speaker // For YEARS I've had this specific bluetooth speaker on my wishlist. Working from home, I'm constantly bouncing between packing orders, designing and painting. Music is such an important element of getting me into the right headspace for creativity but also making mundane tasks more enjoyable. I also am a huge fan of audiobooks, so a bluetooth speaker that also fits seamlessly with my decor is at the top of my wishlist!

4. Pacific Natural at Home book // I'm a lover of all things Jenni Kayne. The brands natural and minimalist style is right up my alley. I have and love the Pacific Natural book she first wrote and she just came out with a new book all about the home that I cannot wait to get my hands on.

5. Where the Crawdads Sing // This book has been on my list of things to read for a long time. I finally, after all these years, started reading it recently and I see why it's a best seller. The writing and imagery it evokes is beautiful. I am about half way through the book and am thoroughly enjoying it. It's definitely drawn me in!

6. Linne Botanicals Purify Face Wash // I'm not usually one to splurge on facials cleansers. That's usually the area in skin care I am more budget-friendly. But after trying a sample of this cleanser, I knew I had to purchase the full size! You can use it both as a face wash or leave it on as a face mask. (I do love a multipurpose product.) It gives my skin a very gentle exfoliation to where I can use it every night. It leaves my skin so smooth and isn't stripping. Every Linne product I've tried, I've loved. But this one is my favorite!
