These summer holidays are looking a bit different to normal, and during these unprecedented times (sorry, we had to say it!) it's never been more important to take the time to truly unwind, relax and
prepare for temper expectations for the coming new year.
We don't do sales, and instead thought you might like to know how we'll be spending our hard-earned time off rather than endlessly scrolling the summer sales...
1. GET AMONGST NATURE
Fresh air and salty water does you the world of good, but in the Land Down Under wearing sunscreen is as important as holding your breath after getting dumped by the shore break. So whether it's a session down the local break, a coastal walk with bae or just pats at the local dog park, the UV rays don't take holidays and neither should your SPF routine. This year we're lathering up in Sunbutter SPF50 natural vegan sunscreen.
2. BE A BOOK WORM
If your Santa is anything like ours, Xmas means a tantalising stack of new books to get stuck into during the long afternoons. This year we're reading local and loving Glimpses of Utopia by Jess Scully, the Deputy Lord Mayor of Sydney and all round boss-lady. It's educational without the doom & gloom.
"You don’t wake up and find a utopia fully realised and perfectly formed. They happen a little bit at a time, unevenly, erratically, and if we know how to look, we can see glimpses of them, everywhere." – Jess Scully
3. GET CRAFTY
Didn't get the chance to pick up a new hobby over lockdown? We recently launched our Zero Waste Yarn collab with Dempstah – spun entirely from our fabric offcuts, your crafts can now be as luxurious and planet friendly as your Citizen Wolf Tee. Two birds, one stone.
4. WATCH A DOCO
When La Niña is forcing you indoors (or you've got a sore head from the festivities) what's more soothing than the sound of Sir David Attenborough's voice? A Life On Our Planet is equally a warning and a message of hope:
In his 93 years, Attenborough has visited every continent on the globe, exploring the wild places of the planet and documenting the living world in all its variety and wonder. But during his lifetime, Attenborough has also seen first-hand the monumental scale of humanity's impact on nature.
5. MAKE THOSE RESOLUTIONS
2021 is a brand new year, so start manifesting and write down all the goals you're keen to kick over the next 12 months. And if one of them is shopping more eco-friendly - these Decomposition notebooks from the good 'ole US of A are made with 100% post-consumer-waste recycled pages and printed with soy ink, making it easy to shop your values.
