Two years ago, Quintessence visited Lulu Power’s home in Los Angeles. The house is full of color, pattern, books, greenery and fresh flowers. And we totally fell in love with her outdoor bar—small, neat, layered with full of charm. If you haven’t heard about Lulu Power, here is a little info about her on her instagram: The Entertainologist. Cooker,Creator,Cocktail maker. Food Editor for House Beautiful. She is a well-known entertainer and we were very lucky to go to many events entertained by her before COVID-19.

Probably at this strange time, the best getaway for some of us is a beautifully landscaped home garden. I came across some stunning home gardens when I browsed internet today and would love to share 9 of them that we fall in love with.

It is pretty hard for me to keep watching news all the time. So I start to spend sometime daily for meditation. The experience is amazing. It is time for us to double down wellness. “Meditation is a vital way to purify and quiet the mind, thus rejuvenating the body.” —Deepak Chopra
When we meditate in nature, we bring a receptive presence to the natural world. It comes alive—and so do we. We no longer look at nature as an inert or pretty object, but as a living and breathing world of mystery and sensitivity, a realm of wisdom and learning that is always whispering its teachings to us. At this strange time, it may be not practical to go to natural for any activity, but if you have a backyard or house plants, you can practice your daily meditation in your backyard or among your house plants.
