A melange of wellness articles, people, events, food, and things that inspired me this week.
This year is the year I work on my finances (better add it to my 2018 intentions). So when I heard of the KaKeibo book, I added it to my amazon wish list. Set-up a bit like the envelope method, this Japanese financial journal seems simple yet effective.
I ordered the Practice You Journal as an early birthday present to myself. After looking through the gorgeous artwork by author and artist Elena Brower, (the photo is one excerpt) I almost don’t want to write in it. Almost.
Candice Kumai is a Japanese-American wellness writer, plant-based chef, and cookbook author. I came across her profile on Instagram this week and fell in love with her style and health philosophy. Here’s her recipe for a clean green smoothie!

Sometimes I google my secret wishes, which is how I came across Secret Suppers, a collaboration of two female foodie entrepreneurs who are living a (now not-so-secret) dream of mine!
