6 Scents that will transform your vibe at home

This month we've been chatting about all things wellness and some of our go to's for a quick reset. For me, scent is in the top 5 along with sleep, proper nutrition, movement and time in nature. It's certainly one of the most important elements in my home and gives me an immediate sense of well-being. I tend to gravitate towards woodsy, green scents with subtle floral undertones.

I love having my place smell like me - it invokes a vibe and to me that is important.

Kadi + Ashley Discuss All Things Scalp Care

We talk a lot around here about our favorite hair care products, routines, and rituals. As Black women, weekly hair rituals have been a part of our experience for as far back as we can remember.

In addition to doubling down on moisture, I’m really paying attention to streamlining and finding products that do double duty.

I took these pictures on March 24, 2018. I was in Washington, DC at March for Our Lives the anti-gun violence march organized by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. The school had been the site of a mass shooting a little over a month before.

How to Choose A Crystal

I never pick a crystal, it always picks me. When I go into a crystal shop, I see what I'm attracted to, feels good in my hand and typically, it's always what I need. Lately I've been drawn to malachite. It’s all about flushing out toxic emotions, clearing away unwanted energies, and ensuring that negative vibes stay 6 feet away at all times. Kind of perfect for this post-COVID existence. One of the best descriptions I found online was from Tiny Rituals....
