August Tip List
Ok. So here’s a little something new. Every week I come across brands, books, ideas and strategies that I want to try out or buy into with the aim of Tipping The Scales in one of my carefully chosen areas. However, there is only so much I can do in a single month. Rather than wait to review each product or method, I thought I’d start sharing the things I’ve got my eye on.
So each month I’ll post a list of businesses, methods, and plans that I’m wanting to try out and Tip The Scales with. I hereby bring you the very first Tip List
I don’t tend to get fomo, but boy did it kick in when I stumbled across The Sister Table brunch on Instagram. Run by sisters Bonita and Benjamina of GBBO fame, The Sister Table was set up to celebrate good food and great company. Open to women only, this sister duo have built a shared dining experience to foster meaningful conversations. The food and settings look epic, and I can only imagine that the conversations are soul-lifting. I’ll be first in line when tickets go on sale for the next event.
Yard + Parish
The website is beautiful, the products desirable and the brand message believable. Yard + Parish was set up to help melanated men and women ‘Discover The Diaspora’ through products made with them in mind. This is one of those destination websites, the kind that you make a point of visiting to browse once in a while because the aesthetics are so damn lovely. I adore what the team at Yard + Parish are doing, and have got my eye on the Jamaican Ackee gold coin necklace.
Never has Instagram made me covet a book more. Over the past few weeks I’ve seen lots of women that I follow delicately unboxing the most intricate of press boxes from new publishing company, Onwe Press. The PR has definitely done it’s job. Daughters of Nri is going on the reading list, and will be by first African-fantasy novel.
Keeping the luxe spinning class trend going, I’m quite keen to give Psycle a try. I’ve got a friend who’s well up for the challenge so I’ll be mounting a bike in Shoreditch in the next few weeks. Their first timer offer is way better than SoulCycle’s so they’re winning on that front already!
I still love my Disciple night oil, however I think I need to be careful about using Retinyl every single night. I’ve been looking for another option for days when I’m not using Dreamy Skin and I just keep coming back to Narloa. The ingredients look dreamy and I’m a sucker for simple sleek packaging. I’ve got a feeling I’ll be treating myself to this pretty soon.
