July was a very busy month. We moved, I went to my first media events, and I wrapped up the Summer semester.
It was packed with things to do and places to go, so I'm very excited for August, as I plan on taking time off and slowing down.
Today I want to share what I've enjoyed over the last four weeks. Feel free to share your favourites in the comments below.
Dahlia & Sons Black Diamond Turkish Towel // The Cure Apothecary
I love the unique look of Turkish towels. These ones are great because I'm able to get them locally in downtown Toronto. They come in beautiful colours and patterns, but I went with the simple black.
They're lightweight, they dry very quickly, and they're so soft and comforting. They're also very gentle and it feels like you're wrapping yourself in a cozy blanket.
Linen Hand + Face Towels in White // Lost in Linen
When we moved I wanted to change things up with sustainable linen towels. These ones were made here in Toronto. They're light and dry very quickly. I love the quality and the simplicity. I'll be purchasing more linen towels from this shop asap.
Note: Etsy is having issues with their payment processor, and I'm very frustrated with them, as they've charged me multiple times without refund. So if I were you, I'd wait to order these until they've got it sorted, or use another payment method like e-transfer or PayPal.
Original Candle // Woodlot
Woodlot is one of my favourite candle shops. This is one of my favourite scents. It's very earthy, with scents of sandalwood and sweet orange.
If you missed the blog post about Woodlot, let me introduce them. They're a Canadian brand that creates unique, eco friendly candles with renewable, non GMO coconut wax, eco friendly cotton wicks, and recyclable glass jars. There's nothing better than burning their candles in your space.
The Nest // Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
This book is my favourite kind because there's a lot going on, but it's still easy to follow. The story is told from multiple viewpoints, and there are lots of different characters with intertwining stories. It's very dramatic, but also very realistic. I've been reading this every morning and it's been a really great way to start the day.
Walking to Yoga + Our New Neighbourhood //
When I moved to Toronto, I pictured being able to walk everywhere. But because of apartment prices and going to York University, we moved to the very north part of Toronto. We were really far from everything so I drove everywhere.
But now we've moved south and it's been amazing. My new yoga studio is a 15-20 min walk away, which is so great because I'm saving gas, getting more time outside, and getting more exercise.
We're also really close to a central location that has so much to offer. It's been amazing to live in such a quiet, beautiful neighborhood that's close to so much.
