Au Naturale Eye Essentials Kit

600 Posts

Good morning all! It's a sunny Friday in Irondequoit and it is supposed to be in the 70s and 80s this weekend! It's also date night, so my husband and I are going out to dinner and I am just in a fabulous mood.

When I logged on, I noticed that yesterday's post was my 600th! Hard to believe that I've had that much to say in these past 21 months!

In honor of 600 posts, I wanted to share with you some of my personal Indie finds from the past couple weeks...some have arrived and are being enjoyed, while others are en route. I'm not picturing 1 item I purchased on 1000 Markets because it is for my Mom for Mother's Day and one never knows if she's reading this or not.

A couple of these items have a story behind them. 

The first item, the earrings, are what brought me to 1000 Markets! I was looking for milk glass items for a blog feature I did on March 3rd. I found the earrings and a lovely lady named Nora over on Etsy and when I told her that her earrings would be featured, she mentioned to check out her shop on 1000 Markets. I thought to myself, "What is 1000 Markets?" and the rest is history! I saw that these earrings were available in Nora's 1000 Markets shop, Transient Treasures, and knew they'd be a wonderful reminder of how I came to find my online home for KZM Facial Care Boutique.

The washcloths from Peanut Tree Designs are fabulous. We already have these at home and they are all I use now on my face and on the boys for washcloths. They are so soft and gentle and wash like a dream. They are such high quality! I ordered 3 sets this time, and 2 sets have great fabrics suitable for little boys.

My shampoos arrived the other day from Rhonda at In a Lather. I am a repeat buyer and this time I tried 2 new to me scents. Both are nice! Today I washed my hair with Lemon Verbena. Rhonda was kind enough to include a gift--a great lip balm in Thai Coconut! I can't say enough about Rhonda's customer service!

The last 2 items--the handbag and tea sampler--are from companies I haven't tried yet. 
I have some handbag bags with Amy Butler fabrics, and I like this new bag I am getting because it's Joel Dewberry fabric--similar color palettes are used, but there are differences in the two designers.

After mentioning the tea from LiberTeas yesterday here, I became tempted and decided to try her sampler...I'll let you know how Anne's teas are when I try them.

I want to wish everyone a wonderful weekend!
