GIFT GUIDE: ADORN + EMBODY
VENUS ENERGY TO COAX OUT CONFIDENCE AND STYLE
We present our gift guide series, each focused on a different area of life to nurture and celebrate— whether tending to home, discovering ways to “play dirty,” or focusing on self-exploration. Allow these gifts to shift and unlock something new for the recipients: adventure, joy, empowerment, energy, and freedom.
We invite you to come back each week, explore, and find your flavor of love to share.
VINTAGE GEMS |
With online shopping reigning supreme, scouring for flea market diamonds in the rough is simply not happening. There’s still ways to get your vintage fix, though; the most incredible upcycled curators on the internet have done the work for you. Some of our favorites include hyperfeminine Lucia Zolea; Roam Vintage for separates with West Coast sensibility; or Display Copy, an emerging bi-annual magazine where everything is shoppable, vintage, and sustainable (some of these sites offer gift cards, too).
Supercharge your H2O with a duo of functional supplements.

There are 43 muscles in the face, and to achieve razor-sharp cheekbones, a defined jawline, and an overall lifted visage and decolletage, you have to work them out.

While nailing someone’s signature scent can seem tricky, help them explore their own olfactory preferences with Heretic’s personalized perfume discovery kit.

This way, you’re not spritzing unwanted toxins in the air or on your body, but still smell impossibly sexy.
