a mélange of finds + favorites
- Leather journal / sketchbook - this handmade journal would make a great companion on lazy days and summer road trips... it's from Etsy's Daniel Heywood
- Crème brûlée - with Bastille Day (France's National Holiday, le 14 juillet) coming up this weekend, Chronicle Books is having a giveaway to win a load of French-inspired goodies. All you have to do is pin (I pinned this crème brûlée - the recipe is from Rachel Khoo's The Little Paris Kitchen recipe book).
- Huile Prodigieuse - after reading about this lauded dry oil everywhere, I wanted to find out if it lived up to the hype so I picked up a bottle last summer in France. In short,... in does. It makes your skin feel soft and silky and smells divine, like a sunlit escape.
