New Brands I love

Happy Saturday night!  As I sit here watching the Patriots v. Texans game, it occurred to me that I haven’t shared some of my new found favorite brands.

Of course these brands are not in direct competition with my business.  Two of them are social awareness and philanthropic businesses.  These are ones I really like to promote.

First, I found the most amazing socks ever!  Yes, there is such a thing as getting excited about socks. Especially when they are Bombas socks.  These are literally the most comfortable socks I own.  You know that annoying seam across the top of your toes that gets twisted and annoys you until you re-position it.  These socks don’t have that seam.  Plus they have this way of hugging your arch that just make my feet happy. For every pair of socks these two guys sell they donate a pair to the homeless shelters.  You’ve gotta watch the video about their story. You can shop Bombas by clicking here.  You an get 15% off your first order by signing up for their newsletter. #beebetter

The next company I have purchased from quite often in the past year is Half United.  Every purchase provides a meal for someone who would otherwise go hungry.  I have the bullet necklaces in silver and gold.  I wear them quite often and people do ask me about them.  I love sharing the story of this company as well.  I’ve also bought a few of their tees and they are wicked soft (sorry, I’m from Boston.) I’m sure there are discount codes out there but I’m not aware of any.  I have reached out to all of these companies asking if they have discount codes but to no avail.  All the same, I still recommend them.  These brands also make great gifts with purpose.

These bullet necklaces are lots of fun and make for a great conversation piece. You can shop Half United here.

I’d love to hear your opinion on these.  Next up is a company I discovered on Instagram.  It’s Cape Cod Diem.  Seriously I was so excited to see this line.  Reminds me of home.  I grew up in Falmouth, MA.  That’s on Cape Cod for those of you who don’t know.  Side note: Visiting the Cape at least once in your life should definitely be on your bucket list.

Anyway, I ordered a long sleeve shirt from Cape Cod Diem that has names of towns running down both sleeves.  When I saw Falmouth on there I knew I just had to buy the shirt.  I immediately went to their web site and snagged a shirt.  It is such soft cotton fabric and a gorgeous dark Navy.  I’m not sure about discount codes for this company either.  But if I find one, I will certainly share it on my personal Instagram feed.  They sent me a cute sticker too.  Since I have run out of space for stickers on my lap top I’ve started putting them around the frame of my monitors, lol.  I don’t care if people think it is silly at 52 to do that.  I am who I am. My daughter saw the sticker on my post and she wanted one.  I emailed the company and asked if they’d send her one.  Still waiting to hear back from them. This is the shirt I bought. Shop Cape Cod Diem here.

Finally, I saw this awesome tee shirt company on my social media feed. It’s called Mama Bird and Co.  Seriously some amazing word tees.  Full disclosure I have not bought one yet.  I plan to in the very near future.  I’ve seen several of my “Insta-buddies” wearing them.  They have an Etsy shop you can check them out here. My two favorite shirts are here.  I didn’t see a discount code for them on Social Media. Yes, I’m striking out in the discount department.  I’m sure they are out there somewhere.

So, that’s all for now.  Remember to follow me personally on Instagram @KiwiAndEllie and my personal accounts on Instagram and Twitter @MomaJuicy
