THINGS WE LOVE By Carla Valencia de Martinez My parents used to burn Nag Champa incense all over our house when we were young. The smell is incredibly nostalgic and soothing to me. Do Terra’s reassuring blend Peace does this for me too. I love the therapeutic blend of vetiver root, lavender flower, ylang ylang flower, frankincense resin, clary sage flower, marjoram leaf, labdanum leaf/stalk and spearmint herb. www.doterra.com I discovered local business owners Brittany Darrington and Amy Tyndell’s cheeky tees at last month’s super-cute Flea at Silver Street Studios. Oil Digger Tees are muy soft and oh so Texan-relatable. www.oildiggertees.com OMG, I seriously love this Titan charging cable. I can’t understand how my iPhone® cables seem to self-destruct. I admit I can be a little rough on some of my things but I never just yank my cable out of the socket so how, for example, the one in my car that tranquilly sits in the adapter manages to split into hundreds of frayed cables is beyond me. This industrial bad boy is indestructible AND I can manipulate its wirey material any which way. www.fusechicken.com $35 62 L O C A L | june 16
