Our team members choose their favourite must-haves for fall. —Vita Daily
noa’s pick. Founded by Caylen Baker and made in Port Moody, Canvas Candle Company is my latest flame. The brand’s high-quality, design-focused, soy wax candles include a new-for-fall Cozy at Home collection, which carries my current fave Slow Sunday candle ($28), featuring notes of espresso, cardamom and—mmm—Mayan chocolate, among other best-selling editions.
vicki’s pick. Beauty brand Versed’s Shortcut overnight facial peel ($27 at Shoppers Drug Mart) is one product I’ve been loving for fall. Blended with exfoliating and brightening lactic acid and glycolic acid, plus vitamin A to improve tone and texture, this lightweight cream formula soaks into skin without leaving a residue, so it’s perfect for wearing to bed—even when it starts getting dark early.”
madison’s pick. A self-proclaimed accent-pillow addict, I can confidently share the best-kept secret in the industry with you: Uusi Studio (on Etsy). These handmade Canadian cushion covers are divine in every way. With a variety of vintage and new-textile options, Uusi’s got exactly what you need to craft your perfect pillow-scape. Plus, each cover boasts the brand’s signature (gorgeous!) brass zipper. The old saying is true: design is in the details!
lyndi’s pick. Local ethical lifestyle company Obakki recently launched a stunning debut collection of jewelry created by its artisan partners in Kenya. The classic signet ring ($85) is my pick this month; not only beautiful, it is made wholly of upcycled brass obtained from discarded taps, padlocks and old coins that would have otherwise ended up in the junkyard. Gorgeous, on so many levels.
