4 Things I Discovered This Week That I Just Have to Share

So many beautiful, useful, and sustainable things cross my desk every week, so I periodically condense them all into a handy post of my favorites for you to peruse. I hope you find something you like in here!

John Masters Organics Argan Oil*

John Masters Argan Oil // naturally has vitamin A for smooth, shiny hair

Argan oil is my favorite way to smooth out frizzy hair. With summer coming, I’ll be using it every day. John Masters’ argan oil is hand harvested by a women’s collective in Morocco. It’s naturally rich vitamin E (that stuff that is really good for your hair and nails) essential fatty acids and carotene. Even better, its scent is so subtle that you can hardly smell it at all. If you’re a fan of smelling like yourself (like me!) you’ll like it.

In preparation for summer, I’ve been working out a lot more, and I just didn’t have enough work out pants! I actually already owned a pair of sunset pants from Teeki, and I love them. Made in California, they are made of 79% recycled plastic bottles, and printed in a sustainable way that is safe for workers in the environment. So I went straight back, and after some very hard decision-making, settled on ordering the Deer Medicine pants.

Made from natural fibers and produced ethically in Portugal, Datura clothing walks the fine line between insouciant and luxurious. Like, “Let me just throw on this gorgeous thing I pulled out of my closet on my way to the cocktail party uptown.”
