Dear Diary

This month’s edit is short, sweet, and most importantly, simple. I’ve been working really hard to simplify my life lately: go out less, drink more water and cold-pressed juice, be outdoors as much as possible, and consume LESS whenever I can. This means I’ve been cooking at home, mending old clothing, and being extra selective about what I let into my life.

July’s list is about my current essentials, the things that make me smile every single day!

Dose Juice // I first spotted these sleek, colourful juices on the shelf at Whole Foods and it quickly became tradition to grab one every time I trekked up there to grocery shop. With healthy living on my mind, I’ve decided to try one of their cleanse programs this month with Josh (you know what they say about the couple that cleanses together…) Stay tuned for updates!

Folk Fortune // I like my life to feel like a tropical vacation at all times, and my little wicker slipper & sun hat set from Folk Fortune really help with the wishful thinking! Handmade in Vancouver, I’m already eyeing a woven basket to match too!

Lovestar // I’ve been in love with Lovestar for years and years, and finally having not one but two of their heart-shaped mountable vases often feels totally surreal. I’ve never been more inspired to play with fresh blooms!







Melon // Does she mean melon? Like actual melon? That’s right, no product link here. I am all about melon right now! Growing up I always ate around Honeydew and Cantaloupe in my fruit salad, but this hot Canadian summer I simply cannot get enough! If anyone has some amazing melon recipes I’m all ears!

Coqui Coqui Perfume // I never ever buy the same perfume twice because I am just far too indecisive, but I met my match when I sniffed Coqui Coqui’s original coconut fragrance, Coco Coco. This stuff is pure sunshine coconut sunscreen goodness, and I am desperate to plan a trip to their Mexican Perfumeria to see them bottling the scent of summer in person!

The Good Twin Co. // Who doesn’t love great stationary? The iridescent foil writing and quirky details on this company’s goods are just the right amount of weird.
