THE BEST START
Setting a strong foundation at the beginning of the year will lead to mindful decisions throughout. From starting fresh to looking within to renew, this year is a commitment to live in the present state. Here is our curated list of all the best ways to have a good start this month.
THE BEST SHOPPING
Renting, recycling, vintage–the industry is evolving to be more responsible and we’re taking every opportunity to do so too.
We’ve been longtime fans of Rent the Runway for their everyday pieces. It’s the easiest and Earth friendliest way to refresh your closet without buying a whole new wardrobe.
We love all things vintage. Founded in Stockholm, Worn is a one-woman vintage and second-hand shop. Their reworked pieces are a favorite among models for the ultimate off-duty look.
Conscious decisions start with conscious materials. Heirloom Revival (a sister to Starling Jewelry) believes jewelry is meant to be worn not just stored. They want to encourage a full-circle jewelry industry by reviving pieces you wear less than your favorites.
THE BEST READS
This was the first thing we read in 2023 and we plan to carry it with us throughout the year. Living in the present state directly correlates with building strong relationships and Jancee Dunn helps us focus on the topic for now.
Sometimes we get caught up in the craze of our everyday lives and tend to take the little things for granted. Hannah Jane Parkinson breaks down her favorite small things in short essays which we plan to read every morning before we start our day.
Not everything has to be perfect. We find beauty in being scrappy every day and are looking toward a future with strategic incompetence in mind. Maggie Lange teaches us how to embrace a little uselessness in the year ahead.
THE BEST ENTERTAINMENT
Take time to center this year. Upon asking friends and family how they got into meditating, they recommended the Calm App because it lets you focus on a goal. From sleeping deeper to improving focus, set intentions with your personal goals in mind.
We’re constantly looking for ways to tread lighter on our planet. In this podcast, Pandora Sykes and Venetia La Manna discuss fast fashion and how making smarter shopping habits is the first step in creating a more responsible world.
Founder of one of our favorite brands, AMLUL, Gala González sets the mood just right with her latest playlist, “Velvet Light.” We’ve had it on nonstop to cook, clean or just take a walk around the city.
