What We're Obsessing Over This Week
Some of our current obsessions of the week, designed to nourish each pillar of your life.
MANTRA OF THE WEEK ~
PRODUCT LUST ~
Sun Potion White Dragon Matcha // The Love behind Sun Potion just launched our favorite green powder of all time: the magical matcha! It's safe to say that our search for the perfect jar of this stuff is o-v-e-r. What makes SP's ceremonial grade White Dragon just the absolute best? "Tea-trees are shade-grown in naturally-cultivated soil, (without the use of any fertilizers, pesticides, chemical or organic amendments...just water, shade cloth, and some straw and leaves for mulch) in harmony with the forest mountainside where the farm is located in Nara, Japan. The whole leaf is used and makes a sacred, antioxidant + nutrient-rich tea to be served warm or cool and integrated into daily rituals, recipes, meditations and magical moments."
SONG OF THE WEEK ~
Holocene by Bon Iver // We always knew that Holocene was one of the most magical songs of all time, but after going through Nerdwriter's description of the song, we are convinced that it is a forever masterpiece. Justin Vernon, may we have your mind?
BOOK CLUB ~
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts // "Burning slums and five-star hotels, romantic love and prison agonies, criminal wars and Bollywood films, spiritual gurus and mujaheddin guerrillas — this huge novel has the world of human experience in its reach, and a passionate love for India at its heart. Based on the life of the author, it is by any measure the debut of an extraordinary voice in literature."
RECIPE YOU MUST MAKE THIS WEEKEND ~
Rainbow Spring Rolls That Are Easier Than They Look // A rainbow of colorful shredded veggies, rice-paper wrappers and a mega-chunky peanut dipping sauce are all it takes for these tasty spring rolls to sing.

YOUR FRIDAY NIGHT COCKTAIL CONVO STARTER ~
Can A Drive-Thru Salad Bar Change Fast Food Forever? // "The pioneers of the "fast-casual" restaurant world — including Shake Shack and Chipotle — still lack one staple ingredient of the classic fast-food dining experience: A drive-thru window. Enter Salad and Go, a restaurant chain based in Arizona that is selling healthy meals for less than $6 from a traditional drive-thru window.
