Small Business: Nettle’s Tale

Screen shot 2015-04-28 at 11.53.21 AM

I discovered Nettle’s Tale when their Indiegogo campaign video flooded my FaceBook page back in April 2014. When I pressed play I was more than impressed, I fell in love for the Nettle’s Tale story.  After starting my blog and featuring small businesses local to me, I had a few friends encourage me to reach out to Nettle’s Tale to share their story.  Soon after that I reached out to Julia, founder and swimsuit designer for Nettle’s Tale, and was thrilled that she was interested in having me feature her small business.  Nettle’s Tale is an outstanding small business that does more that just cater to their customers needs, they help their customers to be confident and love their bodies inside and out.

Shop Spotlight: Twine Abode

Time and time again I am so surprised with how small the world is. I was introduced to Twine Abode through a post on Instagram and fell in love with their style and products. It was after a few emails back and forth that I realized that these lovely ladies, actually lived in the same town as me. I love when that happens! So not only are these products all natural they are local too. Win Win!

I got a sweet package last month and have been using their kid’s bath time products ever since. The smell is amazing! When I tuck my daughter in before bed we always spend a few minutes snuggling and rocking her the chair, I love nuzzling my head in her hair and smelling the natural and fresh sweet orange smell of their kid’s hair and body wash. Pure delight.

Photoshoot: Mommy & Me

Sunny days have been hard to come by lately, so when my husband got home from work early we decided to head outside and take some photos.  I am loving how he captured my daughter and I, they truely show so much of her personality.  She is a little explorer, when we found this little path by our house that overlooked a gorgeous view it was the perfect setting.

Shop Feature: MimiTENS

It’s that time of year again where the baggy sweaters, thick socks and warm mittens make their appearances.  Getting myself dressed is enjoyable as I love bundling up in layers.  Getting my kids geared up and ready to go is much harder.  Over the past month I have been testing out and dressing my daughter up in mimiTENS mittens and it has made the job so much more enjoyable.  mimiTENS are handmade with nylon, thinsulate and bamboo/organic cotton to keep your child’s hands ‘oh so cozy’.  I have discovered that my mimiTENS mittens stay on my daughter’s hands way better than any other mittens that she owns.   She doesn’t make a fuss when they are on either! Win Win!
