I’m really excited about this one. Over the years I’ve burned my fair share of candles in our home, especially during the colder months. I’ve learned what I like and what I don’t and all the while I was brainstorming what kind of candle I would want as part of my brand- if I were to do that.
Over the summer I discovered a candle company not far from me and I worked with them to develop a scent to call my own. I went through A LOT of samples but in the end it was worth it because I found a scent that I love and, I think, perfectly blends into my collection. So I’m pleased to debut our first ever scented candle!
It’s a blend of soy & coconut wax which gives a very clean, eco-friendly burn and it’s hand poured in here in the US. The wicks are 100% cotton and it comes with an embossed leather coaster of your choice- Veg Tan Black, Veg Tan British Tan, OAK, and Oxblood.
Warm woods & leather has notes of leather & suede, amber, and woods. It’s beautifully soft and warms up any home with a cozy, wrap yourself in blanket feeling.
Just because it’s a candle and will have a live flame, I’d like to include some important tips while burning-
•Always trim wick to 1/4” before lighting
•Allow wax pool to reach the sides of the tumbler for first burn (this ensures an even burn with no tunneling)
•Always keep away from children
•Avoid drafty areas and keep away from curtains or other fabrics
I hope you love it as much as we do! As always, contact us with any questions.
When I was pregnant with my first daughter I was already collecting clothes, toys and accessories for her, naturally. During those last few months of pregnancy where I was riddled with excruciating hip pain, I came across Hello Shiso, an adorable kids accessories brand based out of Berekely, California. I quickly added tons of her hair clips to my online cart and my girls and I have been fans ever since. These adorable clips come in tons of size options (even for fine baby hair), and I was happy to hear that Hello Shiso is run by an amazing fellow mom, Mimi. I think I began Instagram stalker her and we quickly became friends- Mimi is hysterical! My hair clip collection was getting kind of ridiculous and when I was pregnant with my second girl, I knew I had to get this growing clip collection organized in some way. After a few prototypes the clip holder came to be. I think the first real one I ever made is still hanging in my girls room. Mimi and I talked about collaborating on something together and naturally, this was perfect. After sending some samples and leather swatches to her and getting through the first year of life with (now) two kids, I happy to say the Birdie Clip Holders are FINALLY available on Hello Shiso! Head on over to Mimi’s site to check them out and while you’re at it, get some of her adorable clips for a cool little girl you know!
Fun Fact- Birdie is actually my second daughters nickname. 😉
Since the last post, I had our baby! My husband & I welcomed a baby girl into our family and we couldn’t be happier (photo below taken by good friend and our photographer, Carey Kirkella). While I’m still working, I’m having to adjust to the new, sometimes random schedule. But rest assured, our online shop is still open and all orders are going out on time.
In addition to that, our Annie Duffle is currently in production at our NYC manufacturer. We’re restocking classic black and introducing a new color we have yet to name- it’s a perfect grey/taupe that we fell in love with! Everything should be in stock within the next two weeks so stay tuned. Or better yet, sign up for our newsletter and be the first to know when we drop new styles/colors- plus, you’ll receive 10% off your order for signing up!
