Um, are we joking? We blinked and it was December. Seriously Elk babes, where does time go?

As mentioned in the last Monthly Musing post, 2018 was a huge year for us. From a biz standpoint, we’re stronger, bigger and better than ever. But this year, we’ve just been all around stoked to deliver the most rad pieces for all of you. 

2019 is gearing up to be an epic year of collaborations, parties, pop-ups, outfits, you name it! And of course some downright fun.

But truth be told, none of the above would be possible without a little inspiration. A little art. A little creative magic. We’re forever addicted.

Arriving right on schedule, here are the musings, tunes, vibes, looks that are inspiring us during this final hour of 2018.


PHOTO VIBES

As the year comes to a close, we can’t help but look back and feel just a tad edgy. Okay, fine..maybe CRAZY edgy! But we like to think that we made 2018 our b!#%&. Here are some photos that fit our all around mood:

BOOKS, BLOGS + OTHER THANGS

The best thing about the holidays? There’s time to sit around by the fire with a good book, podcast, or cute ‘lil DIY craft. Accompanied by a glass of red, obviously..

If you haven’t heard of Goop, you’re missing out. It should be your go-to blog for literally everything. Work, wellness, food, travel, beauty — creator Gwyneth Paltrow has you covered. There’s REAL, informative, and useful information, as well as tips and guides, updated regularly on that stuff you’ve always wondered about. “Does putting oil on my face give me acne?” “How do I start a book club?” “Are juice cleanses actually healthy?” “Why can’t I wear white after Labor Day?” Seriously, Goop knows what’s up.

MOOVIN’ + GROOVIN’

People who share music with others are the best kind of people. Who doesn’t love a “Hey! Have you heard this song before?” text from their friend with the Spotify link?! Consider us that friend.

Here are some artists + tunes we have on lock this month…

LOOKS WE’RE LOVIN’

Looking stylish in cold weather is hard. Like really hard. So we always turn to what our fav influencers to see what they are piecing together. These two seem to always somehow nail edgy winter fashion.

HOROSCOPES

Capricorn babes, this one is for you..

Mercury is retrograde starting on December 1, so you might be able to find a way out of the dilemmas you find yourself in. The more you delve into a problem, the more you understand it, so don’t be afraid to go deep to get the answers you’re looking for.

You fight for control as the emotional moon enters your sometimes-rigid sign on the eighth, but you might not always get it. You don’t like mess and disorder, but what happens when there’s no way around it?

When the vital sun enters your ambitious sign on December 21, you recommit to your goals. You take your responsibilities very seriously, but all work and no play can be synonymous with a boring existence. Take breaks to enjoy life, Capricorn!


That’s all for now, Elk babes. But check back in 2019 for more inspiration, horoscopes, music, and trends!
