FLORALS IN YOUR SPACE / 05
i’ve been on a bit of a health kick lately. after a few months of intense anxiety, i decided i needed to try to change something in my lifestyle. i began working out 4-5 times a week and trying my best to eat healthier (a constant battle, right?) i was really excited to see that moon juice was opening up right around the corner from me in silver lake (their other location is in venice). i was peeking in the window for weeks because their decor just kept getting better. kristen thought it would be fun to do a “florals for your space” post once the shop opened…check out the twist she put on it this time!
i’ll start by telling you a little about my 3 day cleanse. you drink 8 cold pressed juices each day. i am currently on day 2. you have no idea how much i want a burrito. and cheese. and bread. sorry, having a moment of weakness. luckily the moon juices are very tasty (although the pure greens options are too bitter for me.) i really like the watermelon tomato lime and the ginger lemon. i don’t find myself feeling starving or anything…just more irritated that i am missing out on meals with my boyfriend, or brunch with my friends. it’s more of an emotional connection to the dining experience for me. wish me luck, one more day! the last cleanse i did (here), day 1 & 2 were really hard but day 3 was pretty simple and left me feeling amazing.
and let’s talk about how beautiful this shop is for a second. they have installed really gorgeous light fixtures, a cute and colorful hangout spot in the front, and put an abundance of plants throughout. you just feeeeel healthy when you walk in this place. good energy, for sure. this is the owner, amanda bacon…she has effortless, earthy style.
now, let’s see the florals kristen decided on for this space. if you don’t know about this column. we choose a store or an artist and create a floral arrangement that matches the vibe of their space.
“For the opening of Amanda’s second location I wanted to create a floral piece that would really celebrate all the love and hard work she has put into her new space.”
ingredients :: dahlias, chamomile, clover and crystals.
“Mandalas are often used in ceremonial practices to signify sacred spaces and for many this new shop will become just that. The space feels so wonderful and full of light. It is totally a place you can go to care for your body and mind.
The mandala I made was vibrant, seasonal, and full of love and potent energy…just like all the amazing moon juices.” – kristen
