7th Anniversary Hygge Gift Box


October 27, 2020

We're doing more celebrating and snuggling at home this year. So to celebrate our anniversary, in lieu of a big party, we have put together a collection of carefully curated gift boxes. Hygge, pronounced "hoo-ga,” is a Danish concept that encompasses a feeling of cozy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. Our Anniversary Hygge Gift Box is perfect for yourself or for anyone who might need a little pick-me-up, self-care or love right now—and who couldn’t?

You can pick up these feel-good boxes—all packaged with a special sticker and our signature tulle ribbon—in the store or you can purchase them on the website and we will mail them for you. Enjoy our favorite sherpa lined slipper socks, some oh-so-easy one-size-fits-most undies from Natori, and an apothecary treasure for your lips that introduces an organic/wildcrafted beauty line called French Girl at Amour. With charming color names like Violette and Veronique, you’ll hardly find me without one of these French Girl lip tints in my pocket.

Wishing you much comfort and coziness as we move into winter!

It's been a while


June 22, 2020

It's been a while. A lot has happened.

First came the COVID pandemic. Then came the wrongful deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others. What we’re facing, individually and collectively, is forcing us to look at our lives and our culture with new eyes.

"Love more" is our motto. It’s also a grounding principle. So when I get stuck, I return to the question: where is love here? And now? And again? What are the loving (and safe) actions during a pandemic? What feels like love to the people who are deeply affected by these events? How do we love the people who don’t agree or understand so we can bring them along? And can we get big enough to hold all of it and be clear about it without shaming, denying, collapsing?

For us, engaging with our community has been crucial—from attending city council meetings to showing up at peaceful protests to choosing local restaurants and businesses whenever possible. And also resting. 😊 We hope you are finding routes to action and well-being as well.

Love Story


February 11, 2020

These are two of our favorite photographs: my grandparents and my husband’s grandparents (who eloped!) These photos remind us of what love creates. Love creates family. It also creates art, music, life, adventure. We all have our unique love stories. We're writing them now and today and tomorrow.

We have a pretty active Instagram page. We try to be an inviting presence showing many different bodies, poses, and expressions of beauty. But one of my favorite things about the Instagram page is the pictures we don’t post. It’s the pictures people post and tag us in. These photos speak to how and in what context they feel most beautiful or sexy or easeful in their body. I can tell my story; however on that page other people tell their story and how it intersects with ours. And when we combine them, we create a larger picture of what is sexy, what is beautiful, what is truthful, what it means to love ourselves and each other.

Recently, I helped a man shopping for his wife. He seemed a bit unsure, so I asked a few questions about her size and what she liked. The puzzling question was: Does she like see-through? He wasn’t sure. (And that’s totally okay.) We found something for him to take home. The next week, he came back to exchange what he bought. When I saw him walk in, I was worried. We are truly invested in a gift-buyer's success; we want them to knock it out of the park. He said the size wasn’t right. But then his face lit up a little. “She said she likes see-through.” He picked out something else (and it was a success!) This makes me so happy. Not so much for the lingerie specifically, but that it created a conversation, a little intimacy, and hopefully a little love story.
