Home Guide for Hedonists & Shedonists
With sooooo many options available to equip and beautify your home, it can be a daunting task. I recently moved and had to furnish my entire new condo. After mountains of time researching cool, useful and innovative stuff I decided to create a Home Guide to share some of my discoveries with our dear readers. We are here to make your life better and more resplendent. Enjoy this Home Guide.

Groundwork Coffee Co
I had my coffee connoisseur dad try Groundwork out and he can not stop raving about them. The beans are so fresh, flavorful and healthy. The Masala Tea mix they sell tasted like it was made in India. There are a plethora of coffee subscription options out there, but these guys are stellar! For 26 years, Groundwork Coffee Company has been a homegrown coffee and tea destination, handcrafting the best beverages with the finest ingredients. Their borderline-obsessive commitment to each cup and every customer – in warm, inviting cafés that capture the flavor of their neighborhoods – is fundamental to their business.

Whats is new pad without fabulous wine? A sad place to live 😉 Masi Agricola exclusively produces wines of the top quality level. They are one of my favorite wineries in the world! A renowned specialist in producing Amarones and Reciotos using historic winemaking techniques. Amarone is so smooth and flavorful. Masi is the leading Amarone producer, with 5 Amarones that account for 20% of total production in the Veneto. Made predominantly from indigenous grape varieties, the wines are crafted with a combination of the traditional appassimento method (drying the grapes), double fermentation using semi-dried grapes and modern vinification techniques. The blend of winemaking methods enhances the personality of each wine while maintaining a recognizable Venetian style.
We all need glasses so how about we get a lil nostalgic with ours and get one from the city, school or vacation spot we probably miss dearly by now. UncommonGreen’s Glassware is the perfect vessel for sipping a cold drink after a long day. Featuring beautifully etched maps of some of the world’s best cities, schools and most relaxing islands, these glasses will allow you to have a serene mini-getaway to your happy place.
How about we become more mindful of one’s skin and hair products? Purxury is redefining the beauty space by providing small batched artisanal bath products. Innovation runs through Maria Lopez-Judd’s blood, as the bottles were purposefully black in order to protect ingredients from light exposure. If you’ve been out at the beach too long, look to the Rescue Facial Oil ($49) to help restore dry skin. Apricot Kernel Oil, Avocado Fruit Oil and Argan Oil, among others combine together to form an elixir that soothes, nurtures and moisturizes your face leaving you invigorated. To keep the skin glowing, make sure to dab on some Night Hydrating Serum + Cleanser ($49). Purely Harvested Rosewater, Organic Jojoba and many more ingredients and natural oils will keep your skin as smooth as a baby’s bum. Additionally, their hair line is a nice and all organic, natural way to clean, soothe, and condition your beautiful summer hair with Mint Nutritive Shampoo & Conditioner ($42 each).
Ice Cream Maker
After all that hard work and making it to the end of this home guide article, you deserve a treat. How about freshly made ice cream from your kitchen? The Yonanas ($49) nifty gadget turns frozen fruits into ice cream. Dairy and artificial ingredients are tossed out the window so you don’t have to worry about all the sugar going to your hips. Toss some mango in the machine and have a guilt free treat. If you’re trying to try something different, incorporate mango and avocado for an earthy flavor to result from the combination of two seeded fruits with opposing flavor profiles.
Hope you enjoyed our Home Guide!
