WENDY'S TOP 10 PICKS
1. red cedar scented candle by geodesis $36.
i love this warm and subtle scent that's doesn't overpower any room. an added bonus is that it will last forever (well okay 50-60 hours).
2. 'merci' notecards by snow and graham $15.
i always need thank you cards and this is the perfect set to have around. i adore the simple, 'merci' and swirls of vintagey flowers.
3. latte flatout bear by FLATOUTbear $50.
this little guy makes me want to snuggle! since he is made of australian sheepskin they are so cuddly and cute!
4. puppy tubbie by mullins square $45.
every kid needs a puppy hug straight out of the bathtub or for some fun at the beach.
5. one-of-a-kind vintage dresses.
i love wearing vintage and it makes me feel special to walk down the street and no one else is wearing my dress. and you really can be stylish and green at the same time.
6. je t'aime sara tote bag by atsuyo et akiko $24.
i always fill up my bag while i'm strolling around or shopping, so this is the perfect tote! i like that it's made by local designers atsuyo and akiko ...je t'aime brooklyn!
7. whale girl elephant animobile by blabla $48.
any 'kid at heart' can enjoy this soft, handknitted animobile when it's bouncing about.
8. 'lewis and oscar' print by marissa haedike $40.
this print is so whimsical and looks great framed in an unexpected spot.
9. copper 'i love' notebook by nantaka joy $15.
this earthy copper leaves notebook is just the right size for jotting down my lists when i'm on the run.
10. lavender and lemon bodymilk by little twig $15.
this bodymilk has a nice texture with a refreshing and soothing scent. plus its organic.
