In our recently-launched wellness planner, crystal curator vanessa knight of @able_ground says that when you hold a crystal in your hand, you receive all of the ancient energy that’s been stored in it for millions (or billions!) of years. we also think they are really nice to look at. our style director @idreamofkelly is in tucson right now at the gem & mineral showcase and sent us some photos to drool over. she’ll also be doing a takeover from the show tomorrow on stories, so make sure to check back in and try to get some of that crystal energy via your phone. 📸: @idreamofkelly
We had so much fun last night at our wellness workshop with annie armstrong from @bestdayeverfloraldesigns. it was great getting to invite some of our la community to the penthouse for drinks and time to make bouquets for ourselves, because it’s good to send yourself flowers. as annie said, “flowers are a reflection of beauty; you are beautiful, you are the reason to give yourself flowers.” one of our favorite tips from the night was “enjoy the process, have fun, and don’t be too h*****n your self,” which is a sentiment we want to start adapting to other parts of our life too. swipe through to see some photos from the event, and get some flower arranging inspo of your own, and keep your eyes peeled for more workshops and events to come! 📸: @jesspelphrey
💞happy valentine's day! we wanted to let you know how much we love having all of you around, commenting on our posts, tagging us in photos with your ban.do things, and just generally being around. 💞 today we wanted to let you know how grateful we are for you, and we encourage you to tell someone how important they are to you - whether that's your best friend, pet parent, partner, mailman, or whoever. let someone know you wouldn't be you without them in your life. 💞
The self love spray from @pinklightbotanicals was already one of our favorite things on the site, but when we did some digging and found this caption from pink light's instagram account, it reinforced a lot of why we love it: "the very first product we released in october of 2010 was our self love spray. this product is not a skin care product per se, but an “aromatic balancing mist” meant to uplift your spirit and shift your consciousness around your self perception. it contains aromatherapy, flowers and gem essences to shift emotional patterns. though we are specifically a skin care line, we created this product as the backbone and essence of our line. self love and self acceptance are the first steps to creating healthy skin. we begin every treatment with a warm towel soaked in self love."
If you're looking for plans for tomorrow night, our friends @shortyjeinberg & @shelbyjacobson djing at @themontybar in la for a valentine's day edition of abba night and it's $free$! they'll have all of your favorite abba and abba-adjacent hits spinning all night long and of course, plenty of dancing. bring a date, bring a friend, come solo, whatever you’re feelin’ as long as you’re there, because some of our team will be. video by @sazanimation
