Intentional shop goods for the kitchen and home, a beautiful guide to a city on my bucket list, superfood supplements and indulgences, healthy thyroid function, a must-read on labels and local summer concerts you'll likely find me. 

I haven't dropped by the Food52 shop in a bit, so took a peek and compiled a few checkout worthy gems | Binchotan charcoal for a cleaner, more purified glass of water; Ceramic French Press for your piping hot morning hug; organic summer peaches; fresh black garlic for all your summer pestos and this himalayan pink salt block set(Sidenote: pour this olive oil chocolate fudge down the salt block and right into your special sundae...a trick I saw while dining out at David Burke Kitchen in NYC)

This guide has me longing to escape to Mexico City.

A superfood supplement made from thirty wild-harvested botanicals.

Mmm. This sesame, apricot and mulberry granola. A raw pistachio salted caramel slice. And THIS, all of this

The debate on whether or not coconut oil is good versus bad for us continues, and I'm not sure that we'll all ever agree, as all bodies (down to our DNA) and dietary needs are very different.

Healthy thyroid function is imperative to healthy hormone function. Dr. Christine Surrago lays it all out so well. 

Care to know about natural indigo? You should. (I learned so much from this, and makes me think very differently about choosing denim).

A gorgeous limited edition blush eye pillow infused with Bulgarian rose petals for deep relaxation and restful sleep.

LABELS. Such an important read for all. 

Phantogram and Sylvan Esso are coming to Charlottesville this summer. Who's in (before they sell out)? Also intrigued by the Noise for NOW Festival: A Benefit for the National Organization for Women. 

The latest issue from The Fullest, including a special little flatbread, the wabi-sabi way.
