As we continued to navigate this “new normal” way of life, we’re making the most of the little things that bring joy and we’d love to share those with you as we continue on into the fall season. We do feel that it’s important to continue to stay safe and to find adventures and things to fuel the traveler’s soul within our own hometowns, cities and destinations nearby that don’t require a lot of travel. Now, more than ever it is important to work together during this pandemic so we can all move forward to a brighter future. I’ve been using this time I have in New York City to become more in touch spiritually, in search of healing, helping others, making my home cozy and treating myself to the little things I’ll be sharing in the post below. I hope they bring you joy too!
Calhoun & Co. Butterfly And Moth Woven Throw Blanket
My mom always used to call me butterfly because she said I’m fragile yet resilient and although I’m always flying away, I eventually come back so it’s no wonder my heart exploded when I found this blanket! Brooklyn based Calhoun & Co. is a gift and home decor line with a mission to bring joy and they do it well. Their inspiration comes from community, friendly faces, interesting places, and spending Saturday morning cozied up with a cup of coffee and their dog, Slug!
Simplify Your Cookware with Just One Magical Do-It All Pan
We don’t know about you but ever since the world went into lock down, cooking has kind of been our new thing and the experience has been enhanced by the brilliant Always Pan by Our Place. Living in New York City comes with its challenges- like not having enough cabinet space but the Always Pan is designed to replace EIGHT traditional pieces of cookware! It acts as fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula, and spoon rest. It’s also GORGEOUS. Our Place also offers stylish and really well made dinnerware and glassware.
We also greatly admire the founder, Shiza Shahid who is also the co-founder of the Malala Fund.
Made to Last Accessories by Duluth Pack
We love Duluth Pack who are based out of Duluth, Minnesota and make handcrafted goods of the highest quality materials and are built to last generations. The Lakewalk Pack is perfect for the autumn road trip and sturdy enough to carry your gear and belongings and the Mohair Logo Beanie is super cute and will surely keep you warm on those chilly autumn nights.
Ethically Made and Adventure Forward Designed Candles
The National Park Candle Collection by Ethics Supply Co will have you feeling like you’ve just reached a mountain peak at your favorite national park. Ethics Supply Co seeks to capture your “scents of adventure” by wandering the trails of some of America’s cherished National Parks. Not only do the candles smell amazing. the packaging is gorgeous, making it the perfect gift for the adventure lover in your life.
Relax with Hemp CBD
We all know 2020 has not been easy for majority of us. heck, we wouldn’t even be sitting here writing this post right now if it weren’t for all of the drastic changes happening in the world! We would probably be relaxing on a beach in Greece but here we are in our home city of New York, anxiously waiting for better days. One way I’ve been able to stay as relaxed and chill as I can be is by taking KindUrth™ Organic Hemp CBD gummies. They have been a lifesaver! I’e tried many other brands but they just didn’t do it for me until I tried KindUrth™. Organically grown in the USA and are non-gmo, vegan, gluten free and 3rd Party Lab tested for purity and quality. My favorites are the 1500 mg Premium CBD Gummies (THC Free).
Cozy Jacket by Heartloom
For those quick runs to the grocery store or outdoor dining with friends, we love the super cool Patrice Jacket by Heartloom.
Olive & June The Nailfie Ready Box
We are huge fans of Olive & June, based and now even more so with these gorgeous fall colors! The box includes an 8-piece mani system of tools and products to help you achieve the prettiest mani from home. It doesn’t hurt that their branding and packaging are absolutely brilliant, fully quipped with even a holder to prop your phone so you can have FT manis with friends!
Silk Masks by Claire & Clara
Being in New York City during the entire lockdown and witnessing everything we did during those few months has made us huge advocates of wearing masks as evidenced by the way New Yorkers truly flatted the curve and it has stayed that way because majority of us wear masks. With that being said, finding fashionable masks with filters has become a fun hunt! We discovered these gorgeous satin masks by Claire & Clara and were so excite to see that they also include a PM2.5 Filter. *Disclaimer via website: – This is NOT a medical device.

Fresh Work Out Gear by Outdoor Voices to Get You Motivated to Stay Active
I just recently discovered Outdoor Voices for new workout gear and I am in love! I pretty much live in the TechSweat 7/8 Leggings. They’re incredibly comfortable and I love switching it up from the usual Black with their gorgeous Evergreen color. I pair it with the TechSweat Cami Tank Top which has a built-in shelf bra, removable pads, and adjustable straps.
