With late Spring's warmer weather and life starting to seem a bit more normal again, we've been getting out more and- darn it- it's been nice! With that in mind, this month's roundup of favorites is all about getting back in the swing of things. Beauty, bikes, blooms, and bubbly floral cocktails. We hope some of our favorites become favorites of yours too!
Now that we're getting out and about more, a chic little bag for outings is a must. The Oval Tenganan Basket Crossbody is made in Bali from the eco-friendly and fast growing Ata Reed. Slip the leather crossbody strap over your shoulder and free up your hands to grab a coffee, browse your favorite outdoor market, or stroll hand in hand on date night. You can find this cutie, and some other fun styles, in our lifestyle shop!
The Bluejay Bicycle combines the timeless beauty of a classic bicycle with the convenience of modern e-bike technology. Founder Jen Cohen Bogan set out to design an e-bike that is beautiful, powerful, high-quality and at an accessible price point. Thus Bluejay was born. We love a form and function combo and ordered ourselves a pair. Now you'll find us cruising around town on these chic and eco-friendly Bluejays.
It's official- the era of the 24/7 messy buns and sweatpants is over (sorry!). If it's time to get back into your self-care beauty routine, this is the place to start! Michele Holmes Studio is our one-stop shop for brows, lashes, hair and a little (retail) therapy. The shop is a masterful curation of makeup, skincare, accessories, candles & more.
We stumbled upon the Mobo Blooms flower truck at a local event celebrating moms. This bohemian and chic wandering floral studio allows guests to build their own creations. If you're hosting an event, Mobo Blooms is a must have for flower lovers. You can find them at our Locust Ave Block Party on June 17th- keep your eyes peeled for more deets on our upcoming event!
A friend of ours recently served these rosey-hued beauties at a little outdoor get together celebrating Johanna's birthday. They are refreshingly effervescent and delightfully botanical. We highly recommend enjoying one of these with a friend, a picnic blanket, and some sunshine.
