Finally booking that perfect getaway, or just looking to get in a little bit of Pinterest-fuelled office daydreaming? Either way, if you're anything like us, we're pretty sure your list of dream destinations is loooooong. A luscious jungle retreat? A whirlwind trip through Asia? Well, when in doubt, we really like to keep it simple. And for us, that means that we go for the old standby: the trusty spa getaway.
It’s one of the very first things you notice upon walking into a home—the scent. After all, we all have that one friend who greets you at the door, urging you inside their immaculately-scented, immaculately-decorated place. Candles, while an expensive habit, can completely change the mood of any room or even your entire home.
Let’s face it. How often between your day-to-day tasks do you really step back and take a moment for yourself? And no, we’re not talking about updating your Amazon wish list or grabbing a latte while on a conference call and speed-walking back to the office. We’re talking true self-introspection. The kind that can really put you at ease, and clear your mind. We’re talking, of course, about meditation.
It’s safe to say that we’ve all seen some kind of interpretation of what it is to meditate. Whether it be from media or perhaps even a self-help book you picked up on a whim 5 years ago and totally forgot about, we’ve got a general idea, but the problem is putting what we know about it into practice. When do we meditate? How long are we devoting to it? Do we need to worry about our chakras? Well, don’t you fret, all will be revealed soon, in the Drunk Elephant guide to attaining enlightenment (or, at least attaining a bit of sanity):
Here at Drunk Elephant, we like to think we strive to find the best ways to improve your outer (as well as your inner) well being; and whether that's from one of our serums or a heavy duty detox guide, you can see we're pretty dedicated. Naturally, we believe a huge part of finding and maintaining a good balance of your mental and spiritual wellness starts in the spaces you dwell, but more importantly, the place (or places!) you call home. We're constantly looking for those chic interiors and beautiful decors (as if our Pinterest wasn't proof of that enough!) to draw inspiration from, and of course we're constantly scrounging and saving all the best ones for you to fawn over. Hopefully, these will get you thinking of a few ideas of your own to spruce up your living space with (or wherever! We don't want to impose). So, without any further interruptions, here are the top 5 interior and decor spaces and ideas we've curated over the past few months. Happy pinning!
Let’s talk about a kind of toxicity that lurks beneath the surface. Yes, we write about the tangible, surface-level sort of toxicity often. We want you to take a look at all food and product labels, and if there's a doubt, take it (toxins) out!
