Birchbox Crush: goop

We’re guilty of letting newsletters pile up in our inboxes like dirty dishes—but not goop. The weekly lifestyle email is an immediate read, especially because every issue covers something different, from vacation ideas and restaurant recommendations to wellness tips and shopping suggestions. We chatted with the brand’s editorial team to get the scoop on what we should be doing this fall, plus their must-try recipes, essential travel items, and more.

It’s all about simplifying the everyday so that you have time to truly enjoy life’s pleasures.

The Mantra

To goop is to edit. It’s all about simplifying the everyday so that you have time to truly enjoy life’s pleasures—time with family and friends, good food, and great style.

Next Up

We’ll be hitting L.A. pretty soon with the latest installment of the goop City Guides app.

Cozy Up for Fall

The entire goop office is obsessed with the Chinti & Parker collaboration sweaters from the goop Collection.

Apartment Therapy

We love checking out the London design scene for inspiration. Some favorite spots that always have unique displays are: Guinevere, Mint Shop, Tom Dixon’s store right on the Regents Canal, and designer Michael Anastassiades' recently opened shop.

Eye Candy

If we could be anywhere at any time, these are the art shows we’d be excited to see this fall: Taryn Simon at the MoCa in L.A., Franz West at Gagosian in London, Tony Smith at Matthew Marks in New York, and The Sao Paulo Biennial. The Frieze is always fun and good for people watching.

Recipes on Repeat

Anchovy vinaigrette, bruschetta, and slow roasted tomatoes. Frank Lipman’s smoothies have really improved our morning routines.

Travel Necessities

A pair of good noise-canceling headphones, a comfortable eye-mask, a high-quality moisturizer, hand sanitizer, lots of vitamin C, and a shawl that doubles as a blanket.

Required Reading

Andy Puddicombe’s Get Some Headspace on mindfulness and meditation. Pema Chodron’s When Things Fall Apart is supposed to be a great read (we’re hoping to have her on goop soon). And we're excited for Junot Diaz’ latest novel, This is How You Lose Her.

Worth the Splurge

A good sharp knife, a great blazer to wear again and again, and a high quality, all-natural moisturizer.
