Can you believe we’re already part-way through August? First, it seemed like March lasted a whole year and now it feels like summer has flown by.

This month has everything you could ever need from zit-zapping products and relaxing incense, to a new cannabis store and everything in between.

“There’s just something so soothing about burning incense in your home and it’s a ritual I’ve loved since I was a tween. Thankfully, I no longer have to venture to a health food store or, er, “hemp” focused shop to find incense like I did when I was twelve. These days, some of my favourite local apothecary brands make their own and are my new go-to. Recently, Gold Apothecary and Mima Ceramics teamed up to create a custom ceramic dish and cover that’s ‘the perfect catch-all’ for Gold Apothecary’s Incense Cones – but can also be used to hold your joints, your jewellery, or whatever your heart desires! Each holder comes with your choice of incense, including the latest scent: Floral Sage.” – @GracieCarroll

“If maskne has got you down, then make sure to get your hands on Starface’s Hydro-Stars which are star-shaped pimple patches that magically zap your zits overnight. These babies recently launched in Canada and I couldn’t be more thrilled because they’re reminiscent of the stickers I used to have on my notebooks as a kid but now they serve double duty by getting rid of pesky spots. Simply peel, stick on, and head to bed excited to wake up to clearer skin come morning.” – @BlairAlex

“I’m currently in the throes of Alexandra Roxo’s F*ck Like A Goddess and this book is giving me so much life. It’s not just about sex (to Alexandra, f*cking like a goddess is about ’embracing all of you – all of your messy, wild, raw, sensual self – exactly as you are right now and still feeling good.’) Consider it a manual for reclaiming your relationship with your whole self. Such a liberating, juicy read. The true food for the soul I’ve been hungry for all quarantine. You can read a meaty excerpt here.” – @Kait_Fowlie

“If spending much more time at home has caused you to want to upgrade your home fragrance situation, then I can’t recommend the Jo Malone Lime Basil Mandarin candle enough. Even though it’s a bit on the pricier side, you’ll understand why it’s worth it once you get a whiff — plus, they last quite a while, too. Luckily I got mine as a gift but you can bet your bottom dollar that I’m going to buy one myself when this one (eventually) burns down!” – @CaitlinAlison
