I love incense–it’s a big part of my upbringing and its heady smell reminds me of home. Lately, I’ve been using a lot of this hand-rolled in incense from Ramakrishnanda. My favorite scent is Yamuna, which has vanilla, copal and amber in it. The scent is pretty strong but it’s gorgeous and there’s a lingering after-scent that makes the room smell warm and inviting. Visitors often remark on how good the house smells when they enter–it’s all because of this incense! I buy these at a local shop but you can purchase them here.
I’ve been doing a lot of spring/summer cleaning and found this necklace at the bottom of my jewelry box. I decided to rotate it back into my summer wardrobe because the big, milky blue gems remind me of seaglass–perfect for wearing with a breezy, beachy maxi dress.
If you haven’t heard of it, Rockabye Baby makes baby-friendly versions of rock and pop favorites. For me, the lullaby renditions of the Smashing Pumpkins are beyond sweet and amazing; I downloaded a few of the tunes for fun post-birth listening. Check them out!
