Move with the Times

With all the time we’re spending at home, the space we live in ends up wearing a bunch of different hats. My tiny apartment is a productive office by day and my zen oasis by night (kinda failing on the latter). I’m embarrassed to admit that I spent the first few months of quarantine working, stuffing my face and endlessly scrolling all from the comfort of my bed. And after going numb from the waist down, I’m glad that phase is over and I’ve since graduated to a more “civilized” situation.

It was a friend who actually suggested that I think about getting a diffuser – something to help dress up my 700 sq ft apartment for any occasion, but more versatile than a candle. I could diffuse bright citrusy scents to help focus during crunch times, and switch that out for a lavender-y blend after-hours. Genius!

I already had my eye on one from vitruvi – a gorgeous line of diffusers and essential oils that seem to fit my aesthetic perfectly – and was delighted to learn about their newest launch Move! With a sleek sculptural design inspired by a candlestick, Move is actually the first ever (I’m always surprised when I can say that in 2020) wireless diffuser with a charging pad. So I can take it with me from my desk to my bedside to my evening bath, adding in a unique cocktail of essential oils to set the mood.

Move launches for pre-sale today (yippee!) along with a larger version, Stay, for all you lucky people out that need a diffuser that can handle big spaces. Jealous. During these unprecedented times, I feel like this addition will help me better adapt to whatever the days ahead might bring.
