Viola Loves is a monthly collection of three things we’re currently pining over, be it a skillfully crafted object, the travel destination of our dreams, an artist we can’t get enough of or a woman who has been inspiring us. This month, we explore beauty in silky smooth skin, handcrafted timber and sweet, floral tastes of Upstate New York.
Sans[ceuticals] Silky Skin Kit
There’s only one thing that makes pure silk feel better, and that’s fresh, silky skin. Our go-to for achieving this is the Sans[ceuticals] Silky Skin Kit. The activating exfoliant and natural oils leave skin feeling absolutely amazing – smooth, clean and enriched. Applying this treatment before slipping into a pure silk Colette sleepwear set is one bedtime ritual we can’t live without.
We love women who embrace individuality and celebrate the tradition of artisan craftsmanship. They teach us that there is beauty in imperfection, integrity in using the natural resources of the earth and longevity in products made with care. Erin Malloy is one of these women, whose handcrafted timber objects are both works of art and purposeful tools.
ILĀ Wildflower Honey
Our philosophy that simplicity and quality are the cornerstones for making one feel truly beautiful, from the inside out, spans well beyond the bedroom. We love the brand ILĀ, who wholeheartedly embodies this value. The collection of essential ingredients features carefully sourced products from some the best producers across the world. The wildflower honey – rich in amber colour and floral aromas of New York’s Finger Lakes – is one of our favorites. We like it drizzled on top of our morning yogurt or stirred into a cup of tea at the end of the day.
