EXPLORE | Find Your Park
We all are finding some new activities and hobbies right now, and some of our favorites have been the ones we've discovered outside. That's where Find Your Parks comes in. A collaborative project from the National Park Foundation and the National Park Service, this great tool helps you find your next adventure that might be just down the street. From the high adrenaline (whitewater rafting and off-roading) to the moderate (kayaking and hiking) to the downright relaxing (stargazing and picnicking), there is something here for you. There's even a quiz to help you locate your perfect park along with volunteer and clean-up opportunities for you, your partner or the kids. So go ahead and start exploring.
CLEANSE | Chloe + Chad
Made in small batches so you know your product hasn't been sitting on a shelf for who knows how long, Chloe + Chad has all natural and organic products to take care of all of us from head to toe. We especially love their Rosemary Toner for putting a bit of moisture back into our skin, and they also have gift sets as the perfect introduction for that friend or family member who is looking to up their self-care routine. No chemicals, no fragrance oils - only ingredients you can trust and pronounce. This is a brand that takes care of you so that you can take care of you.
COOK | Jessica In The Kitchen
Jessica in the Kitchen is a food blog that features vegan and vegetarian friendly recipes that are easy to make and often from ingredients that are already in our home or easy to find. Banana Bread overnight oats for breakfast, Thai Red Curry for lunch, Lemon Pepper Cauliflower Wings for dinner, and top it all off with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl brownie - there's something here for every meal. One of our favorites from Jessica? Her whipped coffee or whipped matcha drinks; a great alternative to start your morning. Head over to her blog and work up an appetite.
WOOF | Ruffwear
Ruffwear knows how important it is to take our four-legged friends on our adventures with us, and they make it a heck of a lot easier with gear for swimming, hiking, camping and more. They don't just stop there though. They've worked with The Conservation Alliance, the Wasatch Backcountry Rescue Dog School, Conservation Canines, and Best Friends Animal Society just to name a few. They see the importance of not only having our furry companions along on the journey, but ensuring that working dogs (and their humans) have what they need to make their jobs easier. Whether you have a dog on a mission or just a dog by your side, a purchase through Ruffwear goes a lot further than just the journey the gear takes you on.
SLEEP | Linoto
With all of their products made in Westchester County, NY, Linoto is the go-to spot for high quality linen. They have everything you can imagine, from bedroom to bathroom to kitchen to closet. It's all expertly crafted and carefully pre-washed with natural soaps before it gets to your door. Since we're all for a good nights sleep, we can't recommend their sheets enough, whether you're looking for Quilted Linen, Eco Linen or Organic Linen - it's all there. The hardest part is choosing which color to buy.
LISTEN | Beats & Burn Volume 46
Our friends at Bridge & Burn know how to make a great playlist, and volume 46 in their series of Beats & Burn is no exception. Teaming up with Portland based creatives, Chloë Miller and Kristen Best, this collection of songs was made to boost you up and "fill your space during the long days and warm nights of summer." Generationals, Lucius, and Kishi Bashi are just a few of the artists to grace this list, so go ahead. Put it on and turn it up.
