Natural vegan soap

In April, we were lucky enough to receive some samples of Marvi Beauty‘s natural vegan soap. It was wrapped amazingly, smelled great, and felt wonderful on the skin.  Overall, we give it a gigantic thumbs up. Check out our photos!

Handmade Organic Tea

Plum Deluxe was kind enough to mail out samples of their handmade tea to some of our most long-standing subscribers this past April.  The tea was very very well received (including by us!). Check out our photos: IMG_2980 IMG_2989 We love that each card was hand-signed. You can’t put a price on something that is wrapped and created with so much care. Handmade Ceramic Mug If you check out their website, you’ll see that their motto is: all-organic. creative. hand-blended. small batch.  And you really can tell just from looking at it.  It looks fabulous. Now let’s go ahead and brew some and see if it lives up to it’s visual appeal!

I normally drink boring old English Breakfast tea, but when this was in my hands I kept being a really bad product model by actually drinking too much of this tea—so we had to keep refilling it! I highly recommend investigating Plum Deluxe to snatch up a couple of teas for yourself or as hostess gifts, or even signing up for a subscription (we love getting monthly mail)! Thanks so much again Plum Deluxe!

Handmade Ceramic Mug

In the month of April, our surprise subscribers received a lovely handmade ceramic mug and spoon set, created by ceramic artist White Peach Pottery! Handmade Ceramic Mug Handmade Ceramic Mug Handmade Ceramic Mug Handmade Ceramic Mug Handmade Ceramic Mug Handmade Ceramic Mug Her lovely info card reads: 100% Handmade with Love by White Peach Pottery Your new mug & spoon are 100% handmade by artist Marianne Tolosa, of White Peach Pottery, in the state of Virginia. She worked as a barista at independent coffee shops for 7 years, which gave her a real appreciation of the perfectly sized latte bowl (which you now hold in your hand). Each mug is thrown on the potter’s wheel before being hand-altered and decorated with 14k gold luster.  They’re high fired three times throughout the process!  Because of the gold, your mug isn’t microwave safe, and don’t forget to give this beauty the TLC it deserves—hand-washing is recommended! Handmade Ceramic Mug Handmade Ceramic Mug Handmade Ceramic Mug IMG_3066 We absolutely adore this mug and spoon set and hope our subscribers did too.  Want to pick one up?
