Our new bath and beauty line from Hand in Hand!

The first reason we love Hand in Hand is their oh so beautiful packaging. The sweet illustrations on each scent are perfect. Next, all of the soap, lotions, bath salts, lip balm and candles are natural, vegan, fair trade, cruelty free, palm oil free and pareben free. Along with all that, everything is made in the USA, (the soap is made in Vermont!). 
And if it couldn't get better, for every item purchased, Hand in Hand donates 1 bar of soap + 1 month of clean water to a child in the developing world. Oh, and the last reason we LOVE Hand in Hand is that each scent (Wildflower & Fern, Sea Salt, Lavender, or Orange Blossom) smells truly amazing and feels so good.

Falling for Forestbound

Honestly, who doesn't love a great bag? Fashionable and practical, these Forestbound bags are an all time favorite here at the store. Each bag is made by hand with vintage fabric, meaning that these are truly one of a kind! The designer, Alice, really out did herself with our "wishlist" of what we wanted for this order. Speaking of wishlists, we have a feeling more than one of these will be ending up on someone's list.
