In true Taurus form, I love all things cozy + comfy. I’m at my happiest when I’m wrapped in a blanket, glass of wine in hand, and my favorite candle burning. There’s nothing better than receiving a gift that you know you’ll use every day because of how luxurious it is. These are my picks for those in your life who love #selfcare.

01 / Cozy Pajamas
I live in these. Joking, but not.

02 / Tyler’s Candle in High Maintenance
The scent is aptly named. This is my favorite candle of all time.

03 / Noise machine
For someone who really loves sleep.

04 / Aesop Soap
For someone who needs luxe in every corner of their home.

05 / Slippers
Memory. Foam. Slippers. Need I say more?

06 / Candle accessory set
For someone who has everything.

07 / Heating pad
I don’t know how I ever lived without one.

08 / Memory foam pillow
For someone who really loves sleep: part two.

09 / Ullo wine purifier
No wine headaches, please.

10 / Mug
You can’t go wrong with a good mug.

11 / Barefoot Dreams Blanket
The hype is real, y’all. This blanket is worth EVERY PENNY.



Goodbye, Austin | The Lipstick Tales by Hunter Wuensche

Graduating college is a weird feeling. Although I’m not actually graduating until May, the experience of my last college semester won’t be a traditional one. I moved out of Austin about a week and a half ago, so the time has come for me to say goodbye to my sweet college town. I’m in a bit of denial I’m not going to be here in the spring.

This city has been the best place to call home during my college years. I honestly can’t imagine going to college in any other place, and feel a little bad for anyone who hasn’t had the Austin college experience. I mean, can you say that you went to college in the live music capital of the world? I didn’t think so.

My favorite thing about Austin is that it’s a growing city, which creates a conducive environment for learning, creating, and of course, growing. Most people are familiar with the “Keep Austin Weird” tagline, and I believe it’s an amazing expression of this city- a city that encourages you to be the truest version of yourself without fear.

I was born in Austin, (literally born a Texas Longhorn) but grew up in small town/suburb just outside of Houston. Moving to the heart of a true city at 18 was terribly nerve-wracking. Austin became my home, and my time here in college has given me the most wonderful experiences, memories and friends I will cherish forever.

Thank you for being home, Austin. Here’s to new cities and new adventures.
