I could write a love song about this subscription box. I’m drawn to three things that seal the deal for me when it comes to making a purchase: aesthetic, quality, and sustainability. Goddess Provisions covers all these bases. Each month, their purpled hued box comes to your doorstep, boxes have their own theme and February’s revolved around “Faerie.” I loved that February was themed around something magical and curative. As you will see in the featured products below, each product really correlates to self love. It’s not about looking your best but feeling your best by rejuvenating (think baths, medicinal mushrooms, and flower water)
Each box will contain 5-7 products that are full sized (which is ideal for me because I don’t like the idea of trial sized products that can accumulate and leave waste). All of the products are vegan, cruelty free, and free shipping (worldwide as well).
It is that time of year y’all, winter is coming and so are the holidays! Winter holds a special place in my heart. It yokes back to warm mugs of marshmallow filled hot cocoa, the shorter days gently nudging you to spend as much time in the daylight but once the skies dim you can always count on twinkling lights to guide the way (I can’t help but romanticize the seasons!)
I’ve come to realize that winter is a season of coming together. it harkens you to go inward and find warmth from the chill and reconnect with kin & company. As lovely as that does sound, it’s not always the smoothest sailing during the holidays. Some of us get stressed, some have too much on their plates, everyone has their own story during this time of the year so I hope yall remember to take deep breaths and focus on yourself first.
Here I have curated four gift guides that feature products that are either sustainable, handmade by artisans, and are wellness staples. There is guide for a cozy night in, the wildflower spirit, the conscious hostess (or yourself!), and self-care lounge. I wanted to select pieces that serve a purpose and function. Supporting local + handmade craft is a passion of mine and I enjoy observing the personality of the maker shine through their creations. Comfort + repose also come to mind when the weather drops. Of course everything in this guide is plant-based & vegan
When it comes to skincare, I prefer to lean toward a botanical + natural route. Becoming conscious of what I apply on my skin is something I am taking slightly more seriously with each year. My prior skincare routine as limited to avoiding the sun at all costs, charcoal soap, and the occasional cleanser. My skin is quite sensitive & changes with the seasons so I wanted to embark further into the realm of clean + plant based skincare that is vegan, ethical as possible, multi-purposeful.
