  • Plan Your Happiness with Mo Seetubtim

    "Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." - Mahatma Gandhi

    We can think of no better tool to set our intentions with than Mo Seetubtim's delightful annual Happiness Planner. It begins the year with a helpful roadmap, then checks in every month on your personal and work goals, and leads each calendar day with an inspirational quote. We loved using her planner in 2016 so much that we decided to collaborate on a special four-week edition to gift all of our customers gearing up for 2017.

  • 10 Self Care Rituals for New Mamas

    Kaitlin Coghill

    With the birth of your baby came the birth of a new woman. She looks similar to you but more tired. She's a little less carefree. She has the same passions as before, but they have all (temporarily) moved down on the ladder to make room for a tiny human.

    This is where self-care comes in. Really, a woman should be taken care of by her friends and family after giving birth, but society has a long way to go in honoring new mothers. Many women are left to care for their new child and healing body all on their own. If this is your situation, or even if you are lucky enough to have lots of support from your village, read on for some very simple self-care tips to ease your transition into motherhood. After all, baby can't thrive if mama isn't thriving too! Continue reading
