Happy Monday, friends! I’ve got some big news that I’m excited to share with you today about a project I’ve been working on with the wonderful folks at Quarterly. Starting today, I’ll be a new contributor to Quarterly’s inspiring roster, curating boxes that you can subscribe to and have land on your doorstep every few months.

In brainstorming for this project, I continued to come back to the idea of essentials. As someone who is always working to edit down my belongings and surround myself with only the things I find value in and use on the daily, I’d like to encourage others to do the same. I enjoy routines and organization (perhaps too much), and tend to carry my less is more design philosophy to other aspects of my life as well. I truly believe you only need a few great things to get you through your day, and with that, I’ll be bringing you my picks for your essential lifestyle tools.

Starting with my favorite time of the day (as a few may know), the first box will be curated around the theme of The Essential Morning. You can sign up now, and I promise to send you only the things I love and can stand behind; my go-to’s that motivate my mornings, aid my workflow, make kitchen time easier, inspire an exploration, or help me wind down. And better yet, I’ll also be sending along a letter with every package to explain a bit about the contents, why I chose them, and a few tips and tricks to living with less. So what exactly is Quarterly? Here’s a bit more info:

What Is Quarterly?
Quarterly is a subscription box company curated quarterly by a diverse roster of influencers, all inspired by a theme. Along with myself, you can sign up for packages from Food52, Cool Hunting, and Tina Roth Eisenberg to name a few.

What’s Inside The Box?
You will be receiving a box of goods that I’ve deemed my essentials; for your morning, your work day, clearing your head (or your closet!) — useful products to help you live with less.

How Does It Work?
Each box is $50 and filled with items hand-picked by yours truly around a theme (more on that above). The value of the box’s contents will be higher in value than the price tag, and you have the option of subscribing to receive a box from me every three months, or you can also buy just one at at time.

How Do I Order?
The subscription period for my first box starts this week and goes through mid-July when it will ship. You can sign up here!

Meanwhile, I’ll be working on putting together my first box and am pretty excited about what’s to come. So much so that I thought it’d be fun to give away a Quarterly box to one of you guys! If you decide to subscribe right away, not to worry — you’ll get my second box for free. :) So go ahead and leave a comment below to enter and I’ll announce a winner next Monday at 9am PST. Looking forward to sharing some of my favorite finds with you!

UPDATE: Congratulations to Jennifer Chong (#19) for being the lucky winner of the giveaway! Thanks so much for all of your kind words and support, and for taking the time to enter.

    This is such a beautiful idea. I’m reluctant to bring more ‘stuff’ in to my life, but adore your aesthetic so much I have a feeling I’ll adore what you choose. Love the idea of creating parcels of purpose and beauty.
