New listings: Pantone inspired turban headbands and favors galore

Spring is here, and with that brings gorgeous blossoms, warm breezes, and rolling green hills in California. Being a spring baby myself, this is definitely my favorite season of all. Inspired by the array of colorful festivities (and Pantone’s release of spring season color trends, with Tangerine as the color of the year), I’ve added [...]

The walk I lost my legs to

Okay, not literally, but it all seriousness my legs have never been so angry at me. Ever. Why, you might ask, would a pair of anatomical appendages develop such strong feelings? It all began with an idea… A few months ago, my husband and I decided to make a relatively huge life change (hence the subsequent [...]

A weekend in Grass Valley

Picture this: pine trees as far as you can see, streams and rivers of rushing white water, and nothing but rocky roads to get to acres and acres of privately owned farm land nestled in between. Toss in two adorable half Australian Shepherd puppies and I’m in heaven. Last weekend we trekked about 2.5 hours north of our [...]

Take 40% off our new birdy bath bombs!

So a few weeks ago I let you all in on my disaster of an attempt at new bath bomb molds. The squashed egg look wasn’t really what I was going for, lol. Well, a friend of mine had suggested trying out a bird mold. I had previously thought about doing just that, but I [...]

I made [...]

Yesterday I thought I’d play around with my bath bomb molds and try my hand at creating an egg shaped fizzy. I mean, how perfect would that be? Bachman’s Sparrow’s egg bombs?! Heh heh… Alas, my attempts didn’t quite pan out as I had hoped: In a world where many products are a dime a [...]
