Happy New Year!

I can't believe the holidays are over and it's a brand new year! Thank you so much to everyone who shopped with us this year, online, at our retailers, or at one of our local events.

Thank you again and I wish the best for you in 2020! Happy New Year! xo, Melissa

Made in Queens Gift Ideas

The holidays are almost here (how is that possible!?!) and I thought it would be fun to put together a gift guide celebrating my fellow small business owners based in Queens! 1. Is there anything more New York than bodega cats? I don't think there is and I love, love, love this print from About A Cloud.  2.

Our newest scent is here! I'm so excited to finally launch this scent; it has been in the works for so long and everything that could go wrong did go wrong in bringing it to market. I was looking to create a new scent a year and a half ago, yes, you read that right, a year and a half ago! I began experimenting with some blends and fell in love with one of the blends, a mandarin orange, orange blossom, jasmine, and vanilla mix.
