  • La Croix
  • CAN IT

    “I’m obsessed with the LaCroix Cúrate flavor Kiwi Sandia—it tastes like actual fruit. I’ve been trying to ween myself off of alcohol, so this was my summertime hero that I drank at BBQs so I wasn’t stuck with plain water.”
    —Jenny Westerhoff, photo editor

  • Douro Valley
  • THE ROAD TO DOURO

    “On a Portugal road trip this summer, we stopped to spend a night in Douro Valley. After a wine tasting at the very pretty Quinta do Bomfim, we posted up at Six Senses. The view is all vine-covered, green rolling hills, cut by a strip of blue where the Douro River runs past the hotel. I could have happily spent the rest of my life reading by the infinity pool.”

  • BAVEL

    “I was wary of a restaurant with so much hype and a monthlong wait for a reservation, but Bavel, run by the couple who also owns Bestia nearby, truly impressed me. The greenery-filled space is absolutely lovely, and on a warm night, the patio is the perfect setting for the most divine Mediterranean food. The key is to go with a group so you can order as much of the menu as possible. Make sure to get the hummus and the light-as-air flatbread, which might be the city’s best. My other picks: oyster mushroom kebab, grilled prawns, and beef cheek tagine.”

  • #MIDLANDGALSFORCHANGE

    “I met Paige Appel and Kelly Harris of Midland Shop pretty soon after I moved to the West Coast, and they quickly welcomed me into their community of entrepreneurial women here in LA. Their incredibly thoughtful boutique is full of Ozma California jumpsuits, Rachel Pally linen dresses, an apothecary stocked with True Botanicals and Lord Jones, plus lots of sweet little gifts—just try walking out of there empty-handed. Last spring, they launched a social media campaign called Midland Gals for Change, in which they asked fifty women what change they’d like to see in 2018. This month, they kindly asked me to join a new grouping that includes familiar faces like Lauren Roxburgh, Nyakio Grieco, and Shiva Rose to talk about everything from the ACLU’s work to help keep families together to She Should Run, a nationwide network that’s committed to putting more women in the position of public leadership. The portfolio serves as a beautiful reminder of the importance of leveraging our own voices to pave the way forward.”

  • HER BODY AND OTHER PARTIES BY CARMEN MARIA MACAHADO
  • SUNDAY SCARIES

    “I’m obsessed with scary books. NPR recently released its 100 Best Horror Novels, and I immediately went to the Strand and bought too many of them. (There is no place on earth like the Strand; it’s the greatest bookstore on the planet that has every book you’ve ever wanted, plus a few you didn’t know you did.) I’m working my way through the entire list, and so far, my favorites have been Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado, Bird Box by Josh Malerman, and The Hunger by Alma Katsu.”

  • YAMUNA FOOT WAKERS KIT
  • SOLE SURVIVOR

    “One of the things I love about NYC is that I can walk pretty much anywhere, and everywhere, all the time. But too often, I do it in shoes that are made for Ubering, not walking—and my feet pay the price. When I win the lottery, my first hire is going to be a full-time foot masseur who will follow me around and rub my feet on demand as needed. But until then, I have these Yamuna Foot Wakers. They’re like foam rollers for my feet—standing on them and shifting my weight or position, I can work out any kinks or cramps or soreness and keep the fascia flexible. But most important: It feels incredible.”
    —Aura Davies, copy chief

  • Dopple clothing box
  • FOR YOUR “DOPPLE”-GÄNGER

    “Shopping for my little boy is really fun for me. The problem is that it can get pricey, and there are not enough hours in the day to comparison shop and, say, shower, especially because he’s into the more obscure brands like Nico Nico, Misha + Puff, Tiny Cottons, and such. (He doesn’t actually care—he doesn’t even know what pants are—but I do!) Dopple is a new subscription clothing box that caters to kids age zero to ten. And the roster of brands includes all the ones I love, plus Oeuf, Bonpoint, Winter Water Factory, and more. You can choose to send back whatever you don’t want, and whatever you keep, you get at a significant discount.”
    —Kate Wolfson, executive editor

  • CIAO, BELLA

    “I got interested in clean, natural wine when I heard Marissa Ross speak with goop editors at the Cherry Bombe (most amazing gorgeous magazine on women in food; subscribe if you don’t already!) cookbook launch. Wine, I hadn’t realized, is much like perfume—in that many synthetic additives are allowed and don’t have to be listed on the label. This summer in Italy, I discovered Franciacorta, an artisanal, natural class of sparkling wines. (Franciacorta has its own DOCG, a quality assurance label backed by the Italian government.) I fell in love with Barone Pizzini Animante Franciacorta—it’s biodynamic and organic; it’s an amazing, not-so-expected insta-gift to have on hand; it is not wildly expensive, makes any moment (or any food you might be eating) more luxe, and is, of course, delicious.”

  • FAIRMONT MIRAMAR HOTEL & BUNGALOWS
  • FAIRMONT MIRAMAR HOTEL & BUNGALOWS

    “When my parents come to town, the new practice is to give up our house so we can move into a hotel with an awesome pool for the kiddos. Not only does the Fairmont have that, but it’s across the street from the ocean (you get access to its beach club when you stay, too). It even has babysitting services, so my husband and I can sneak out for dinner and a few glasses of wine at FIG. The boys love running around the lobby, which is lined with little shops and nooks for them to tuck into. #kidheaven.”

  • BRIGHT IDEA

    “I can’t resist anything blue and white, and these African-textile-influenced lamps by LA locals David Netto and artist Jennifer Nocon are truly works of art. Lucky for us, goop is the exclusive launch partner for the second collection of these handmade, hand-numbered, one-of-a-kind pieces, each with a unique pattern carved into its ceramic stoneware base.”

  • LAIRD SUPERFOOD ORIGINAL SUPERFOOD CREAMER
  • YOUR MORNING SHOT

    “The best thing about this creamer is that it’s a powder, so it’s easy to transport. I spend as much time as possible outdoors, and it’s easy to stash this in my bag on a hike or camping. It’s good for someone like me who typically puts alternative milk in my coffee.”
    —Ana Hito, food editor

  • HERETIC PISTIL WHIP
  • PERFUME GENIUS

    “I’m mesmerized by Heretic from perfumer Douglas Little. As with the goop fragrances he co-creates with GP, the pure, natural essences of his scents come to life with each spritz. From smoky florals to spicy pepper and fresh citrus, each one is unique and complex, and I appreciate their androgynous, raw nature. I am partial to Pistil Whip, which blends lush gardenia and tuberose with spicy pink pepper and black tea. Best of all, it’s travel-size.”
    —Jacqueline Schulze Weitzen, director, communications

  • FEITH CLUB RED CHERUB TOILE BLOUSE
  • FEITH CLUB

    “If my Venice bungalow were on fire and I had time to run to my closet, there’s no doubt I’d save my first-gen Tracy Feith dresses, circa 2008. Not only does the man know a woman’s body, but his pretty shapes have a bespoke quality that extends beyond the vibrant, never-to-be-seen-again patterns. As it turns out, the surfer-designer is back at it with Feith Club, selling custom made-to-measure silhouettes in small-run prints—all through Instagram. (Direct-message Feith for pricing and a quick size consult.) Feith Club dresses stay true to the sought-after but not easily replicated quality that first inspired many of my trips to his OG Nolita store.”

  • FACEGYM SIGNATURE ELECTRICAL FACIAL
  • FACE TIME

    “You don’t get a facial at FaceGym. You get a session of vigorous therapeutic kneading and rolling at the hands of a trainer—they’re not aestheticians; they’re trainers. The idea is a face ‘workout,’ a supercharged session to stimulate not just your skin but the muscles in your face that can become tight with stress-clenching and anxiety. These are muscles that are rarely, if ever, given such incredible attention. The roughly forty-five-minute session feels intense, blissful, supremely relaxing, and wildly different from anything else. I got the Signature Electrical, which includes the dynamite muscle-energizing kneading as well as electrical pulse therapy for a toning, chiseling effect. I loved how I looked immediately after and well into that week: Dew-drenched! Smooth! Sculpted! It was as if my face had been not just exercised but exorcised.”

  • LONDON HOMECOMING

    “Six years ago, I started working with goop in London, so to take it back here not only to open our thirteenth pop-up but to mark ten years of this very powerful and very personal brand is pretty damn exciting. This pop-up is a bit of a love letter to London in its subtlety and whimsy. Together with London-based designer Fran Hickman and a handful of local folks including PINCH for furniture, Nest Design for curtaining objects for the space, Vitsoe for shelving systems, and Harper & Tom’s for the florals and planting, we’ve created a home in London that combines elements of California-inspired design with reference points ranging from the monochrome paintings of  Yves Klein to the early physic gardens devoted to the study of the medicinal and restorative virtue of plants.”
    —Brittany Pattner, creative consultant

    goop London, at 188 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill, is open through January 27, 2019.
