Smell and Memory. The sense of smell is closely linked with memory, more so than any of our other senses. It’s the only circuity that passes straight into the brain’s center for memory and emotion without going through other areas of the brain first, which is why some scents you just can’t shake. For Cheryl and I, Mad et Len candles were so intoxicating we couldn’t resist!
Workouts can easily be pushed to the bottom of your to-do list, but movement is so important for mind, body and soul. Like all our hardworking beauties, our time is limited so every workout we do needs to be fun, intentional and easy to fit into our schedules. Here's our favourite places to sweat it out!
We love the city in the summer but when it's time to recharge, there is nothing like taking off on a road trip. We find some of our best inspiration in quiet places so we've pulled together our favourite places to visit this summer. Next time you need to connect with a slower pace, take a break from the city and check out one of these towns.
With Mother's Day just around the corner we have a little treat for all our beauties. PATCHOULI will be selling bouquets starting at $10 at our Yonge street and Queen street shops this weekend. Swing by and pick up the prettiest bouquets in the city for all the mamas, best friends, aunts, grandmas and true loves in your life.
There's so much magic that lives in a space, and we love stepping back and admiring all the beauty in the details. At bluboho we want our spaces to be unique, inviting and feel like home! We got to chat with Kelly Smith and Stephanie Vermeulen from Sixteen Degree Studio, the gals who helped bring our third shop on Queen Street West come to life...
We're always looking for the next great read - especially heading into the holidays. Books are such beautiful gifts to give (and receive!) We caught up with Natalie Jenner, the owner of the independent bookshop Archetype Books. She gave us the scoop on the must-have fiction and non-fiction titles for this season.
Hoops are the newest update to your ear game - but this time around, it's a new take on the classic. Our in-house designer and goldsmith, Chantal, created our exclusive hoop collection out of inspiration from bluboho's fierce leaders. Most people play with their hoops as a sort of meditative reaction to wearing them, so attached to each piece is an intention for you to reflect on and keep with you.
October is vastly making it's end, but we aren't complaining as the leaves are adapting beautiful vibrant colours and the air is getting crisper. The perfect excuse to escape into the town instead of the city to embrace the magic in changing seasons, while warming up with some of our favourite tunes!
Our love for jewels goes so much deeper than just a love for all things beautiful. We love jewels because they mark moments in time, celebrate life, and serve as physical reminders of our soul's journey. The 9 wishes bracelet has nine beautiful 14k rose gold beads, each representing a wish. We love this bracelet because every time we wear it, we carry our deepest desires with us.
We love the eclectic and beautiful addition of gemstones into our jewelry collections! We love it even more when they hold meaning and energetic properties. Our bluboho exclusive stone rings and earrings are the must have pieces for every gals #ring stack and #ear game - so go on and read below to see which stone resonates with you!
bluboho is hiring and....
we're looking for the movers, the shakers, those who can appreciate colouring outside of the lines. you're passionate about creating and establishing friendships. you would rather hug or high five a person over a firm handshake. you appreciate the love and attention to detail that surrounds you on a daily basis.
Turquoise is one of our favourite stones here at bluboho, not only because of its gorgeous blue and green colours but it holds great meaning (and you know us bluboho gals are all about beauty and meaning)! This collection was inspired by the desire for travel and adventure. Maggie and Cheryl discovered some of the most beautiful and unique turquoise when they traveled to Tucson.
Summer time beckons the adventurer in us, the wandering spirit and the lust for travel. We find ourselves taking long drives to bodies of water and escaping to be in lush forests, to take a moment away from the hustle and bustle of the city. As we drive down the winding roads with our windows down and the music up, you will find us singing along to our summer playlist. Here is a sneak peak at some of our favourite tunes.
We are so excited to announce that the very first bluboho store, in Oakville, is five years old! Since day one we mark celebrations, perseverance, commitments, and everything in between. We cherish being a part of the memories you create and that's why we invite you to celebrate five years of friends, stories, connection, jewels, love and creating memories with YOU!
We love the little things in life, like walking outside and looking up at the sky to see the magical moon! The moon has many phases, as it takes 27.3 days to fully orbit earth. The phase we see is dependant on the position of the moon in correlation to the Sun and Earth.
Since we love the beautiful phases of the moon, we decided to share with you some of our favourite moon pieces!
