Stuff We Heart

Cuckoo for Coconut Oil! #stuffweheart

A few months ago, I noticed JT rubbing a glob of coconut oil all over her face, and was all, "huh?!"  Then a month or two later, I found myself reading up on the many benefits of coconut oil, and bought some to simply try cooking with.  But a few nights in to owning a jar, I remembered seeing JT's using it as a moisturizer. Quickly glancing around my apartment to make sure no one was watching (my cats are such harsh critics), I tentatively applied some to my face and was promptly hooked on the stuff!  Face, body, hair, cuticles, curries, smoothies, coffees, oil pulling...there's nary a day now that doesn't involve coconut oil. If you're looking for an all natural, multi-use product to fall in love with, I highly suggest purchasing some. And if you're curious as to where the heck to start with it, a quick Google search will yield loads of interesting and helpful information on how to get the most out of your jar of magic goodness. Keep us posted on if you try it and let us know if you heart coconut oil as much as we do!! XO Cleo

...Magical Mineral Home Accesories #stuffweheart

Malachite, Sodalite and Tiger's Eye boxes from Jane Taylor's personal collection Jane's pervasive love of gemstones and minerals extends beyond the jewelry she makes and into her home decor. As a small child,  I was always fascinated by her massive petrified wood book-ends and size-able hunks of what seemed liked crystallized magic, but were really amethyst geodes and agate slices. These richly historical and mind bogglingly beautiful items that accent her home still fascinate me, and like a magpie drawn to shiny objects, I always find my eyes wandering to them. So upon reading about Goop's newest exclusive product launch in Domaine today, I got pretty excited, because I think everyone should own super cool pieces of gems and minerals! (Even if their coffee table is wearing them, and not their body parts.)

PS: Jane happens to have some some extra boxes she would be willing to part with, so shoot an email to info@janetaylor.com if you interested in seeing photos and getting more info!

...Sunsets

 While everyone loves a good sunset, some of us are so obsessed as to take a detour on our way home just to snap a picture of the temporary and wondrous beauty to add to our vast archive of sunset photos. Um, yeah, guilty as charged: that obsessed person would be me. I can't help but marvel at how each sunset shows different colors and patterns, and started thinking that jewelry and sunsets were a match made in heaven. Below are a (small) selection of photos I've taken over the past year, paired with some of Jane's vibrant gems. Follow along on Instagram @janetaylorjewelry or Facebook for more gemtastic fun!      Cheers, Cleo
