WM Monthly Roundup

· · Comments
We’re constantly checking out blogs, magazines, Instagram, and more to help fuel our insatiable desire for inspiration. We find it helps light a fire under our own asses to do better, be more creative, and try new things. So in the spirit of the old preschool adage “sharing is caring,” here’s our list this month of the links that inspired us.
 
+ NYFW recently wrapped up and we were so over the moon for Mara Hoffman’s Fall 2017 looks. Not only was the collection gorgeous, but she brought elements to the table that were meaningful and inspiring. There was definitely a feminist lean, whether it was the strong choreography of the modern dancers or the beautiful introduction by the founders of the Women’s March movement. We can’t wait to get our hands on these insanely gorgeous trousers & jackets.
 
+ We’re excited to dig into Danielle LaPorte’s new book White Hot Truth. Thechalkboardmag.com sat down with the author for their article, 5 Deep Truths About Self-Love For Skeptics, and dug into her refreshing take on how positivity and self-love can help you recognize your talents, substance, and your kind heart. A must-read for us all.
 
+ Portland is all about coffee, so it’s a little ironic that our new favorite is actually out of sunny Los Angeles. We started carrying Canyon Coffee in the shop a few months back and the reaction has been amazing! We can’t wait to get our hands on their latest blend, Tatama, which will launch in the shop soon (you can purchase their current blend here). We love Canyon’s founders (and real-life couple) Ally & Casey’s clean & natural aesthetic, as well as their focus on organic brews and fairly sourced coffee, making their Instagram feed one that you won’t want to miss!
 
+ We don’t know about you, but we feel like the Danish word hygge has been floating around a mile a minute. In our efforts to learn more (we were late to the party with the Kondo Method and don’t want to make the same mistake twice), we turned to MotherMag.com to break down this cozy concept. Thank us later.
