Setting Self-Care Goals for a Year of Radiant Transformation

January 4, 2024

As we embark on a brand new year, let’s make a promise to ourselves – a promise of radiant transformation and personal wellness. In a fast-paced world that often leaves us feeling overwhelmed and drained, it is essential to prioritize self-care to fill our mind, body, and soul. So, let’s begin this journey together by setting intentional self-care goals for the year ahead, allowing us to bask in the blissful glow of total rejuvenation.

  1. Nurture Your Body:
    Our bodies are our sanctuaries, deserving of tender love and care. Start by indulging in luxurious milk + honey spa treatments that embrace the healing power of touch. Imagine the sensation of a soothing CBD massage, expertly tailored to release tension, melt away stress, and promote deep relaxation. Treat your body to a transformative experience, leaving you feeling refreshed, energized, and radiantly vibrant.
  2. Cultivate Inner Peace:
    True transformation begins from within. Take time to cultivate inner peace and serenity through practices that resonate with your soul. Consider incorporating regular meditation sessions or trying something new, like a sound bath.
  3. Embrace the Power of Nature:
    Nature has an incredible ability to heal and restore. This year, make it a goal to immerse yourself in the beauty of the natural world. Whether it’s a 10-minute walk outside or planning monthly hikes, take the time to just reflect.
  4. Rejuvenate Your Soul:
    Nurturing your soul is just as important as caring for your physical well-being. Dedicate time to activities that spark joy within you.  Make it a priority to schedule things that generally make you happy and don’t let anything else get in the way.
  5. Prioritize Mindful Movement:
    Movement is a powerful form of self-care, fostering strength, balance, and a sense of accomplishment. Set a goal to incorporate mindful movement into your routine, whether it’s with calming yoga practices or invigorating fitness classes.

Setting self-care goals for a year of radiant transformation is an act of indulgence and a necessity for our overall well-being. Let’s commit to ourselves, promising to prioritize self-care and honor our bodies, minds, and souls. You deserve it.

Brand Love: Raven + Lily

April 15, 2020

Raven + Lily’s Hey, Neighbor blog series aims to highlight their favorite local Austin businesses. We were honored to be highlighted on their blog last week and we wanted to return the love. If you’ve never met Raven + Lily, consider this your formal introduction. 


Who are they?

Raven + Lily’s sustainable designs are inspired by nature and our environment. Founded in Austin, Texas, their subtropical climate provides them with an abundance of lush vegetation, verdant hills, sparkling lakes, endless vistas, big skies, and plenty of scope for imagination.

Their team works with women-led businesses who employ skilled craftspeople and invest in their respective community. Raven + Lily’s partners are committed to building their workforce and provide their employees everything they need to learn, grow, and prosper. They work with international businesses that value the tradition of craftsmanship, using locally-sourced materials and handcrafted techniques to bring their designs to life.

As pioneers of the sustainable movement, Raven + Lily favors longevity over fleeting trends. Everything they make is designed to last for more than a season. They want you feel comfortable, capable, and at ease in Raven + Lily – their pieces are made to help you navigate life’s myriad of possibilities. 

This month, they’re donating 20% of all purchases this month to communities directly impacted by the effects of COVID-19. You can learn more about their efforts here.


What’s on our list?

Kamali Dramatic Arc Earrings // Pink Opal

I’m obsessed with these statement-meets-minimal earrings. Even now, I’d love to wear these on a Zoom conference with my hair pulled back.


Anya Cuff // Brass

I love stacking delicate bracelets. This simple cuff would be an immediate staple in my #armparty (yes, that’s still a thing.)


Small Liya Tote // Black

If your handbag preference lands somewhere between statement tote and simple over-the-shoulder vibes, this bag is the perfect solution. I love that it’s big enough to tote a book to the park, but small enough to feel easy and convenient.

New Moon Guide | July 31st, 2019

August 1, 2019

The new moon arrived on July 31st at 10:11pm CT.


Mercury finally turned direct yesterday — time to celebrate! Things should feel less out-of-whack in the coming weeks, particularly when it comes to technology and communication. While we’re not out of the woods yet (post-retrograde is real), allow yourself time to reflect on the lessons taught by Mercury Retrograde. Are you ready to pencil in a digital detox? Did a miscommunication reveal perspectives you hadn’t previously considered? This is the perfect time to turn inward and hold yourself accountable.

Try approaching goals on a monthly basis. What are a few things you’d like to accomplish in August? Meditate on it, write it down on paper, and keep the goals somewhere visible. (Think: bathroom mirror, on your desk, bookmarked in your journal, or by your bed.) Check in with your goals throughout the month to make sure you’re on track. Remember to use a positive and encouraging tone with yourself. Only had time to pencil in 15 minutes of meditation instead of a yoga class? That’s better than nothing andtomorrow’s a new day.

This new moon brings a shake-up — whether that be a break-up or breakthrough. It’s an ideal time to turn over a new leaf or start something you’ve been putting off. Start that blog. Apply to your dream job. Make that dating profile. It’s Leo season after all.

Remember to practice patience during this cycle. Try to slowly emerge from Mercury Retrograde and be mindful of lessons learned.

The new moon is always the right time to set intentions and question old habits. What’s working well for you? Where could you make space to try something new?

#ArtOfTheBath: rise + shine

January 14, 2019

Some mornings are harder than others to get out of bed. Perhaps you stayed up too late exploring all of the Bandersnatch endings or maybe you’re simply not a morning person. Either way, I relate. As a self-proclaimed nightowl, I’ve found that setting routines for the AM can change my perspective in the morning. Waking up early for a yoga or Soulcycle class can be motivating, so I figured why not give the #ArtOfTheBath a shot? So after much research, I present to you #AOTB: rise + shine edition.

#ArtOfTheBath: new year refresh

January 7, 2019

While the new year offers optimism and opportunity, it can also present a lot of pressure. If your Instagram feed is anything like mine, you’re being bombarded with crisp, new activewear, renewed Soulcycle memberships, and lofty expectations for the year ahead. And though I’m all about resolutions, I think everyone could add “being gentle toward myself” to their 2019 list. It’s great to stick to your guns and book that class knowing you’ll have to pay $20 to cancel, but your off-days are just as important for your headspace. That said, I’ve created a refreshing #ArtOfTheBath for your off-days this year. Or even your on-days. If you ask me, weekly bathtime is A-OK as far as resolutions go.
