August Reflections

August Reflections

by Caylie Warkentin


Come September, light from the sun softens, caresses rather than scalds. In the Northern Hemisphere, this means that we're losing about two minutes of light each day - which is why we're boosting up on vitamin D with our fortified lip care (Click here to learn more about vitamin D in our lip products!).

This past month we attended Bespoke Market (see above) - our first-ever market experience. Our hearts were full after meeting you, and it was a reminder of why we strive to be a community-centred brand.

Alongside forming connections with the Vancouver community through in-person events, we support fellow women entrepreneurs and creatives through conversations on our blog. Scroll down to read two of our favourite interviews with local women creatives.

We hope you enjoy the last warmth of summer and a joyous transition to fall.


Autumn is a time for hearty dishes that nourish us from the inside out - that warm our stomachs and our hearts.

Try chanterelle mushroom risotto - a soothing, filling dish jam-packed with vitamin D. Depending on how your mushrooms are grown, this dish could contain up to 100% of your daily recommended dose of vitamin D.

Discover Uninvited: Canadian Women Artists in the Modern Moment - an exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery that celebrates more than 200 pieces created by women artists from the 1920s to 40s.

The fall equinox is occuring on September 22nd - an astronomical event when the sun crosses the celestial equator, and we lose approximately two minutes of sunlight per day.

Discover how the fall equinox is celebrated around the world in this National Geographic article!
