Geri Hirsch and Erin Falconer are the definitions of #goals.
One scroll through their respective Insta feeds (although you might already know them from their sites—Geri started her blog because im addicted in 2005, and Erin co-founded Pick the Brain in 2008—and joined forces to create lifestyle resource and video-centric site LEAFtv in 2010) and you’ll understand why they have tens of thousands of loyal followers. There are pics of swoon-worthy photos of matcha lattes, sweet blush-colored bath salts, and luscious spreads of the coolest new organic beauty products. It’s all so gorgeous, you wish they could curate your life for you.
So when we found out that the LEAFtv co-founders were launching a year-long subscription wellness box called The Year of Wellness, it was a dream come true.
How it works
The premise is simple: Sign up for The Year of Wellness, and every month you’ll receive a box curated by Hirsch and Falconer that’s centered around the pillars of wellness like Detox, Nourish, Glow, or Energize and filled with goodies that’ll help you live your healthiest.
“In the last couple of years, we’ve noticed people really love and want more wellness content,” says Falconer. “So we spent a tremendous amount of time diving deep into health, to really learn more about it and live it ourselves.”
The boxes, she continues, “will introduce people to all types of conscious practices that we’ve tried and really love.”
It’s for beginners and wellness pros
As they’ve become acquainted with rituals like oil pulling and dry brushing while building their own content, the women realized that they idea of “wellness” practices can be a little intimidating to some. “It can all feel so overwhelming, so our goal was to make wellness and living this lifestyle accessible and fun,” Hirsch explains.
And in true LEAFtv style, these boxes are also gorgeous. They come with products that are beautifully packaged (perfect for sharing to your Instagram!) and detailed instructions on the best ways to use the goodies that get delivered to your doorstep.
Even if you’re already a wellness pro, you’ll still learn tons from The Year Of Wellness because boxes were designed with newbies to experts in mind. “These practices, superfoods, and products will make you feel better, it’s so nice to get to try different things to figure out what works for you. After this, your wellness practice is gonna be on point!” laughs Hirsch.
The theme of the first box is “detox,” and we’re already obsessed with the copper water bottle that helps filter out toxins and the high-quality body brush that came inside—we can’t wait to see what’s inside next month’s “nourish” package. Seriously, can you think of anything better than a chic wellness-inspired gift box that gets delivered right to your door monthly? Neither can we!
