shops I love (etsy // 2).

It's been a while since my first list of etsy favorites. I feel like every day I'm stumbling across a new shop full of things I needtohave. Here are a few of my very favorites right now. 



Stefanie Sheehan. These rings. I want every single one. In multiple. Stefanie creates the most wonderful, tiny rings that are just my very favorite thing. I have the gold spike ring and I wear it every day (and get complimented on it. every day). I think the open ring will be my next treat. 


Swim Club. I got some of these bath salts as part of my blogshop goodie bag and I never looked back. They are in awesome packaging, work like a charm, and look just as cute on the shelf as they do in your tub. Do it. 



Small Gunns. These candles. UGH. They smell so good. And they look so good! And. They are in reusable whisky glasses. Everybody wins! 



Little Korboose. This shop sells everything from onesies and robot pillows to prints, but I'm a HUGE fan of their tea towels. I have the Arizona print (naturally) but I've had another handful of them sitting in my shopping cart for a good month. 



Sharp Tooth Studio. C'mon. These banners are just the cutest. What else is there to say? 

I can't say enough good things about etsy. It feels like a special treat when your order arrives carefully and thoughtfully wrapped by the person who made it. Did you know you can buy etsy gift cards? I got one for a recent birthday and it was one of my favorite gifts!

shops I love (mouth).


I love a good snack. 

Especially something a little unique. The kinds of things you find from random cafes and farmers markets when you're in a new town and you wish you had bought way more than you did. 

When I read about Mouth a while ago, I knew I had to give it a shot. Selling "indie food", Mouth delivers all those great treats you don't come across every day. 

Their online shop sources the best of indie food, shares info about where it comes from, and brings it to you, no matter where you are (although I don't recommend any artisan chocolates delivered to your Arizona front porch in June, rookie mistake). They sell hard to find spirits and wine, delicious cheese and crackers, and even have a "cookies every night" subscription service. I repeat. Cookies. Every. Night. Ha! 

On my first attempt I got my favorite pickles from Detroit (yep, I'm that girl that orders pickles on the internet) and brown butter cookies from a bakery in NYC. Everything was delicious. And who doesn't love cool packaging and a free tote bag? 

Anyway. Whether you're looking for a unique gift for someone you love or you just want to #treatyoself, I definitely recommend giving Mouth a try!
