After a Weekend Focused on Wellness, These Nordstrom Items Are on My List



I wouldn't exactly describe myself as a wellness girl. Well, I guess before my latest weekend away, I wouldn't. I'm an NYC-based editor, but I love to get away whenever I can, so that means lots of weekend getaways. My most recent trip was to Mohonk Mountain House in Upstate New York, which is a resort focused on wellness. I went with my best friend, and it ended up being exactly what I needed: sauna, steam room, mineral water hot tub, etc. I even had a facial, and if I'm being honest, my skin has never looked so good. The property itself felt like a castle and spending the weekend decompressing has transformed this non-wellness girl into someone who now checks Goop on the daily, drinks collagen water, and has a 10-step skincare routine.

I'm grateful for my Mohonk weekend because not only am I now prioritizing taking care of myself, but since the holidays are right around the corner, I have also shifted my gifting ideas to ones that help keep others well. Naturally, I went to one of my favorite retailers, Nordstrom, to start finding wellness goodies for my friends and family and also for me. I don't know why I didn't know this before, but Nordstrom's site has a whole wellness section, so I scored.

A supplement with an antioxidant formula that protects from accelerated aging while promoting collagen production, elasticity, and cell vitality. I need to try this ASAP. 

One of the key things to staying well is making sure you sleep through the night.

I want to add this in my skincare tools.

A little soul soothing is always a good idea. 

An essential oil to help you unwind.

There's nothing like a classic Santal 26 candle.

I don't know about you, but I love a good candle. 

I'm not trying to stop the ageing clock, but slowing it down a bit is okay. 

You'll never exfoliate without one of these again—trust me. 

I'd rarely try a soap bar, but this one has me intrigued. 

I'm more into Pilates, but in case yoga is your thing.…
