Who deserves a Honey & Sage Co. Care Package?

Who deserves a Honey & Sage Co care package? Someone you know gives and gives and hardly takes any recognition. Someone you know is tired and still thrives for her family everyday. Someone you know needs a lift whether it is because they lost a loved one or got some bad news. Someone you know needs Honey & Sage Co. It is a website with products and even care packages thoughtfully put together as a perfect gift for someone deserving.

In the latest care package there were so many settling product such as this prayer bracelet. Every monthly box has a meditation quote and this bracelet is made with yellow aventurine and lava stone, both of which are believed to help with self-confidence, creativity and stability.

June’s Mediation for example:

“I challenge myself to lift another woman’s spirit by giving her words or actions of encouragement and to revel in the inherent goodness of which I am made. I challenge myself to sit daily in a prayer for peaceful understanding that I am worthy and so is she.”

Using the prayer bracelet daily as you read your meditation can also be done with a cup of Vibrant-C Hibiscus and Elderberry Tea that is also good cold. However you enjoy a cup of tea in peace you get a blend of herbs that are refreshing on a hot day and offer a boost to your immune system.

2 drops-2 different uses. The Organic Hawthorne Tincture is taken orally to support a healthy heart. The Skin Soother is used topically and contains aloe vera, Vitamin E-rich sunflower oil and essential oils for that after-sun skin care.

June also gives you this Seoul Mama Revitalizing Mask because we all need those spa-like moments and this mask is packed with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and hyaluronic acid for conditioning. See the unboxing in action below.

Fragrance gifts from your Favorite Stars of Empire – Fox

Thank you Empire of Fox for partnering in this feature

It’s Father’s Day soon. Do you know what you are getting dad or your husband? No? Neither do I. It is so hard. My Dad is pretty simple to please, but my husband is hard. If he wants something it is typically something big he will pick out himself. Then his birthday is June 9 so I try hard to not become lazy and combine the celebrations so I have to think of 2 great gifts in a 1-2 week period. This gets hard to find the perfect gifts.

This year may be a bit easier. With the new premier of the Fox show, Empire comes a cologne and perfume (because when we shop for the men we hardly forget to bring something home for ourselves). Legacy is the name of the men’s cologne that contains a blend of bergamot and lemon water with lavender buds, crisp geranium and clary sage. I am sensitive to some colognes and some scents give me instant headaches. I love this smell. I can’t wait for him to wear it. Just remember the Legacy of Lucious as you head gift shopping this Father’s Day.

While you are picking up his cologne and feel the need for a new perfume…because you are there so you might as well, Truth is the women’s perfume inspired by the lovely Cookie from this line you will want to test. Not a day has gone by that I have not chosen this scent to wear. It is a soft floral blend mixed with blackberry and velvet plum with hints of Bulgarian rose, vanilla orchid and violet blossom.

As you watch Empire on Fox you may think of the gold and sophistication of these fragrance bottles as a connection to the desire to go gold in music. The stars that have inspired us with music we can connect to are rewarded with going gold and most share that same swagger in their own way that makes us want to watch and listen to them for times to come. The essence of all of this is felt in the design of these bottles. These stars aim for making it inside the music industry and so you can strive to hit gold this year on a gift your man (and you) will love.

Saying Thank You with GourmetGiftBaskets.com

Thank you to the partner, GourmetGiftBaskets.com for this feature idea. Opinions are my own

Saying Thank YOu with GourmetGiftBaskets

 Chances are you know an Awesome Mom…or Dad, teacher, co-worker, neighbor, babysitter, volunteer, etc. Have you ever wanted to get them a Thank You gift and are left stumped on ideas? Gift cards are cliche and not with the most thoughtfulness put into the gift. Coffees and teas are good if you are sure they drink them. But, gift baskets remain a popular gift idea and when GourmetGiftBaskets.com puts the entire gift basket together for you including a personal message then how can you go wrong?

basket for Mom

First, I look at the basket! At GourmetGiftBaskets.com they get creative from using the base of a basket like above or colanders, buckets, platters and decorative gift tower boxes. Then you need to make sure that what is inside matches their personality. You can find baskets with wine, beer, meats, chocolate, candy, teddy bears, sauces, pasta, cheeses and so much more.

cookies for Mom

This gift basket that I am featuring is great for Mom (hence the mug that reads Awesome Mom). It is called the Happy Mother’s Day Gift Basket. This basket is all about teas and cookies. It includes: Awesome Mom Mug by Burton & Burton, Green Tea Garden by Davidson’s, Butter Rich Cookie Brittle by Holly Baking, Earl Grey Tea by Davidson’s, (2) Amber Rock Candy Demitasse Barista Sticks by Dryden & Palmer, White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies by Kimball Lake Bakery and Strawberry Tea Wafer by The Original Carlsbad Oblaten.

tea for mom

How adorable is that mug? No matter who you need to thank, you will find baskets and even care packages to gift. I have always loved the quality of baskets I have experienced from Holiday Gift Towers to Teddy Bears & Chocolate.

My son is 8 and loves the holidays-any holiday. He will bounce in from school with MLK facts in January and Easter projects in April. He knows Valentine’s Day is next week and he loves to hand out Valentine’s cards to his classmates. When he gets home they are all over the floor as he sorts through them. I also leave a treat on the breakfast table for him to wake up to from us. I did the same with his older brothers too.
