Each month in our newsletter, CURRENTLY, we list a few of our favorite monthly finds from podcasts to travel inspiration to home goods.
Let us know your thoughts and share some of your favorite new discoveries in the comments!
- Weleda Skin Food - I don't remember where I first read about Weleda Skin Food, but I recently bought a tube to try and love it. Weleda's ingredient list is completely natural and full of goodness, it costs only $10 and while the directions say to use it on rough spots like elbows and hands, it's actually amazing for your face and won't make you break out (despite being a thick cream). There are plenty of other people raving about it on the internet like Into the Gloss, Goop, and NY Mag. Use as a total moisturizer, under eye cream, highlighter, etc.
- Dear Sugars Podcast - I started listening to this podcast while working on our finally-finished airbnb remodel and found it so interesting. Author Cheryl Strayed (Wild) and her co-host Steve Almond turned their weekly advice column into a podcast a couple of years back. There are some heavy letters and topics from time to time, but I love hearing their compassionate, yet tough-love responses to people's predicaments. If you want a good one to start on, listen to this 2 part episode here and here with Oprah Winfrey on the power of saying no.
- Get Clever - I've been really enjoying the new Architectural Digest brainchild, Get Clever which is full of approachable design tips for every day life. Follow them on instagram @getclever or online at architecturaldigest.com/clever for full articles.
- I'm slowly making my way through my new interiors book This Is Home: The Art of Simple Living. Stylist, writer and interior designer Natalie Walton travelled around the world to capture fifteen different homes, all richly layered and thoughtfully edited. The photographs and interviews included are making me evaluate how to better use the things I love and to leave out the frivolous so that my home feels even more like an extension of myself.
- A couple of weeks ago we watched the newest documentary about the early days of Jane Goodall's research with chimpanzees in Gombe beginning in the 60's. National Geographic finally released over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage and it is fascinating to watch as she narrates. Available for streaming on Hulu.
- We've been using this platter and this server with nearly all of our meals lately and the spring produce looks so pretty against the soft black! I first learned about this line through Flora (where I learn about so many good things) and am now a devoted follower. Made in Portugal, the unglazed flameware can withstand high heat and is safe for use in the oven and on a gas range. Informal but stunning, we receive compliments every time we use it. Hopefully more pieces are in my future.
