SHOP | CHOISELLE ORGANIC CANDLES
Organic, pure and all natural, Choiselle products keep the chemicals out and bring nature in. Inspired by recipes crafted by her grandmother when she was a child in St Lucia, Nydia Norville founded Choiselle with a goal to create nature-based products that are healthy, balanced and effective. Her candles are a favorite - using essential oils and coconut wax. Not overly perfumed but with a longer lasting burn than a soy based candle, the lavender is already calming as it is, but throw in the soft crackle of a wooden wick and you'll be surprised how relaxed a candle can make you.
WATCH | A MAN CALLED OVE
Based on the book of the same name by Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove is the story of a curmudgeonly widow who likes order, rules and routines. Dark humor mixed with memories of his past love, Ove tries to fight the growing disorder around him without realizing it's actually growing on him. Isolation, friendship, affection, connection - whether you read the book or watch the movie, you're sure to fall in love with a man called Ove.
With many of us working from home or changing up our daily routines, being able to pack everything we need easily is a must. Bridge & Burn, as usual, has us covered. The Sandvqist Roald backpack is at the top of our list for must-have bags, with a laptop pocket and plenty of room for more. Not just functional, this thing is sleek, so it makes sense why there are only a few left. Snag yours while you can - you won't regret it.
LISTEN | SYLVAN ESSO "FERRIS WHEEL"
North Carolina-based duo, Sylvan Esso, is known for their upbeat and extremely catchy take on pop music. Electronic beats mixed with Amelia Meath's soothing yet bright vocals have made their albums easy to fall in love with and even easier to dance around to. Their newest single, Ferris Wheel, is no exception, with Meath crooning "August in the heat, sweaty in the street" (very fitting) as the song opens and quickly pulls you in. Don't take our word for it though. Put it on and turn it up - you'll quickly see what we're talking about.
