My favorite 3 items on the LOVE GOODLY shop:


I add this protein and greens powder to my morning smoothie (I’m obsessed with my Blendtec) – I add chilled green tea, frozen organic blueberries, 1/2 an avocado, a handful of kale, and mango – I’m good to go!

If I am home, then you can bet I have a candle burning – I’m obsessed with all things vanilla, plus the energizing dash of grapefruit scent in this candle is perfect. 

 
I’m a sucker for understated jewelry and a tiny bit obsessed with both moon phases and astrology – these earrings are so me!

 
My favorite nonprofit or cause/charity:
Meals On Wheels. To feed someone is to love someone. 

My favorite city:
I think I’ll always be partial to my hometown of New York City but right now I am all about my current city, Oakland. Oakland is a bit of a magical place – the diversity and pride of its residents, natural beauty (shoutout to Lake Merritt), and accessible and exciting food and music scene are unlike anywhere I’ve lived. 

 
My favorite restaurant:
FuseBox in Oakland, modern Korean fusion with a laidback, welcoming vibe. 
 

My favorite eco tip:
Eat less meat!!
