It’s no secret - we love spending time at home.
We’ve all embraced the art of staying in this year. Still, something about wearing your sleepwear until 2 pm and letting time fly by as you read a good book always feels coziest when it’s cold outside.
So kick off your fuzzy slippers, sit back with some mulled cider, and Make Yourself At Home* with the things we’re hoping will distract us until the end of this crazy year.
Watching: Shangri-la, a documentary miniseries about legendary music producer Rick Rubin. Named after his famous Malibu studio, where plenty of our favorite albums were born, from Johnny Cash to Kanye West.
Reading: Untamed by Glennon Doyle. Not to be cliché, but you’ll finish this powerful memoir feeling like a more liberated woman. And if you’re like an old soul like us and prefer physical books over audio- or e-copies then you’re in for a treat—because nearly every page is worth dog-earing.
Doing: Candle making. Since WFH has us burning through our bougie candle collection faster than ever— we figured we’d make our own (and pro tip: soy wax produces less soot than paraffin).
Listening: Talking Heads singer David Byrne’s epic performance American Utopia. He’s joined by an ensemble of 11 musicians, singers, and dancers from around the globe, it’s a wonderfully weird dreamworld where human connection, self-evolution, and social justice are paramount.
Making: Cooking our way through the Night+Market cookbook (with some natural wine pairings, of course). Our favorite Thai spots may be closed for dine-in, but whipping up this homemade Larb Gai made us realize that the next best thing is only 40 minutes and 1 lb of ground chicken away.
Learning: Gua Sha — a beauty treatment technique that involves scraping your face with a massage tool to improve circulation. We didn’t know it existed either. And turns out, it’s facial benefits were discovered by mistake. But Gua Sha stones are our new fave skincare tool—and our pores and de-puffed eyes dig the technique, too.
Wearing: Chunky Wool Car Coat. We refuse to surrender our meticulously curated winter aesthetic to sub-zero temps—so thank god for Chunky Wool. Luxe, heavy weight construction, for heavy cozy vibes.
Color: Our new color of Washable Silk, Iris — a deep, rich purple that’s so serene, just looking at it makes us feel like we’ve meditated for four hours straight.
