Favorite Gifts For HimAren’t men always the trickiest to shop for? When it comes around to the holiday season especially, I feel a bit hesitant with choosing what to gift. After all, we all want to give a gift that won’t just be set aside to collect dust! I’ve found the best pieces to be unique, one-of-a-kind vintage finds, and then sharing smaller, more affordable but ultra useful gifts he can use day-to-day to be the best. PLANT APOTHECARY'S START HAPPY BODY WASH Yes, giving the gift of body wash may sound a little silly - but it makes a great stocking stuffer! And I’m telling you, he’ll appreciate something he can use in his daily routine. This wash has a great uplifting scent from real organic essential oils of geranium and peppermint, which I love, and the quality of this wash shows in the ingredients. It’s even gentle enough for men with sensitive skin. PLANT APOTHECARY'S SUPER SOAK HEALING BATH Who said men can’t enjoy a healing bath too?!! This "super soak" formula is actually created for the ultimate healing bath. It's thoughtfully crafted with soothing ingredients like purifying sea salt, organic mustard, and organic eucalyptus essential oils. Perfect for his long day after the office! All-organic, & no harmful chemicals added that you would see in most bath products. Read more
Best Products For Glowing Skin This SeasonIn all honesty, it’s hard to maintain our skin in a healthy state 24/7. Let alone resembling a glowing angel. There are many factors that can play into one’s appearance. A photograph in a magazine may feature someone with clearly beautiful, radiant skin, but the truth of the matter is that there is much more going behind the scenes. Aside from photoshop tweaking & editing, there is diet and disciplined movement (getting that sweat on!) that play a role in one’s complexion. Now, there are some that just have crazy genes, and can eat whatever they want without having to worry over a blemish, or dullness, but that is less common and let’s not dwell on that or get jealous! These are my current must-haves for your best glowing skin yet, this season... GLOW FLOW CHEFS ENERGIZING MATCHA LATTE Even with the chillier weather among us now, I’m staying consistent with my smoothies and juices, everyday. Keeping with a diet that’s high in dark leafy greens and glow-inducing fruit is major. Another beverage I like to drink and have seen benefits with is matcha. Yes, this antioxidant-rich tea is so yummy in the mornings with almond milk & agave nectar. I’ve been drinking this unique blend by The Glow Chefs, which besides matcha (the finest), consists of reishi mushroom, lion's mane mushroom, Ashwagandha Root and more healing ingredients. INSTANATURAL'S GLYCOLIC ACID SERUM Now to true topical skincare products, this serum is incredible for exfoliation. You can feel it at work as it tingles, sinking into the skin immediately after it’s applied. I use this about 2-3x a week, cutting back to about once a week as the chillier air picks up and increases potential for dryness on my skin. Read more

Hello love! Tell us a bit about you.
Hi, my name is Patricia and I live in London, UK. I work deep in the tech industry and at
the same time I’m finishing my Master’s in Global Finance. Although, both sound
very technical and geeky (haha) I still enjoy and find it very stimulating creating graphic
designs and landing websites for small businesses. Although, it seems like that these two (finances and design)
don’t have much in common, doing both is actually very interesting and often spark ideas that I wouldn’t
otherwise think of. Read more
