It took a relocation to the opposite side of the world in the East and fighting an aggressive breast cancer diagnosis in the West to inspire two friends to cultivate a space that brings people together in the name of balance. After two and a half years of absorbing the progressive wellness culture of Hong Kong and a year of traditional, and non-traditional, therapies to get into remission, JESSICA DIETRICH and AMY BRADLEY are perfectly suited to bring Winnetka a place to reset. With its rituals and meditations, SOLE + LUNA WELLNESS offers a refuge from the hustle, a place for pause, and an inviting environment where you start to reflect upon why you started moving so fast to begin with. Here is how this peaceful pair stays on trend.
ON THEIR NIGHTSTANDS
Bradley, training to brew Easthill Chinese tea at Sole + Luna, dives into the rich traditions of China’s tea culture in The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See. Meanwhile, Dietrich reads Everything is Figureoutable by Marie Forleo, which serves as a bible in her entrepreneurial journey, allowing her to end each day on a positive note. Coincidentally, they both were reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho during the infancy of brainstorming the future studio.
IN THEIR AIRPODS
Dietrich still feels connected to the Beastie Boys, as their music was woven through her youth, while Bradley finds energy and inspiration in Arcade Fire. During the long hours of daydreaming and planning for the studio, Bob Marley was on heavy rotation for the two to keep them grounded.
ON THEIR MOBILES
They are both driven by astrological signs, basing numerous business decisions on the phases of the moon, with Bradley loving the horoscope app The Pattern, and Dietrich following @moonomens on Instagram. The two are also inspired by @courtneyandthebabes, and carry the Australian’s ethically sourced essential oils and mists in store.
