One of my favourite products of all time are Prana Rock Candles, made by this beautiful human, Kimiko Willgress. Kimi is such a warm and loving person, and an extremely talented artisan. I love everything she stands for, and had the best time photographing her and her candles this past fall, on a beautiful beach at sunset.
Gemstone jewelry by Earth Goddess, what lovely pieces, and so fitting with Kimi’s incredible spirit. Visit the new Earth Goddess Shop in the Halifax Hydrostone, you will not be disappointed. Beautiful leather headband made custom for me by my bestie and creative confident Oh Dina!. Makeup by the amazing Allison Kirby.
