1. Norden Goods Ceramic Vessel Candle

I absolutely love my Norden candle! I currently have their Ojai scented candle, which smells lovely! It definitely adds a warm and cozy feeling to my living room. After the candle is finished burning through, I can use the beautiful ceramic holder as a mug or planter. 

 

2. Alexandria Cummings Ceramic Mug

After taking a ceramics class in college, I came to really appreciate handmade ceramic ware. Ceramics can be a difficult skill to learn, so props to the people who do it well! These mugs were made in Portland, OR exclusively for Maven. You won't find these babies in the same colors anywhere else! My favorite is the white with terracotta stripe. It has a nice feel and is comfortable to hold. It's perfect for my coffee on a cozy morning.

 

3. Public Supply Notebook

Here's a great company I can get behind! 25% of Public Supply's profits go towards supporting the arts in public schools. They have funded over 100 classrooms all over the US (there's a list on their website, go check it out!) since 2013. I recently purchased their 5x8" dot grid notebook. I've used it for note-taking, list-making, and doodling. It's lightweight and sturdy. I'd say it's the perfect little notebook for me!

 

4. Ali Golden Roll-Sleeve Tee Shirt

I don't buy clothing very often. But when I tried on the roll-sleeve t-shirt in olive, I could see myself living in this thing! It is so comfy! The thick organic cotton also has a really nice texture. One of my biggest concerns when buying clothing is knowing where it came from and how it was made. As a company, Ali Golden maintains high standards of ethics and sustainability. Their production spans all over California, a woman-owned knitwear co-op in Peru, and a small, fair-trade certified factory in India.
