Word of the Week - Pastiche

by Emily Betzler July 14, 2014

Your Monday is about to get better because it is time for word of the week.  I present you with the word -

Pistache

Pastiche  /pa'steSH

1. A literary, artistic, musical, or architectural work that imitates the style of a previous work, stylistic imitation
2.  A musical , literary or artistic composition made up of selections from different works
 

Our lives are our greatest work of art don't settle for a pastiche. Let's create, write, sing and dance our own inspired story!

  If pastiche isn't the word for you check out merriam-webster's list of synonyms: agglomerate, alphabet soup, botch, clutter, collage, crazy quilt, farrago, gallimaufry, grab bag, hodgepodge, hotchpotch,  miscellanea, mishmash, montage, muddle, , olla podrida, salmagundi, smorgasbord... I just had to include them because there were so random.  Alphabet soup, smorgashborg?  Perhaps not the vocabulary expansion I was hoping for but pretty fun.  My little man is going to love having salmagundi for lunch...

.   .   .   .

Stay tuned, tomorrow is giveaway day!! You aren't going to want to miss it!  Look how excited this little lady was when I showed her the prize, I'm not sure she is going to give it up!

Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands

by Emily Betzler July 14, 2019

 As you know, we are in full-on BABY mode over here (and loving every minute of it)!

It seems like the baby game has changed quite a bit since our last baby- there are so many new ethical, small shop, sustainable and giveback brands and products that we've begun to fall in love with! While we still turn to 2nd hand/hand-me-down items as our first resort for finding items for our kids - (it is most economical and sustainable), it has been encouraging and fun to see the myriad of new options! We've loved trying out and supporting some of these brands as we shop with an impact, and are excited to share our recommendations with you! 

Here are our favorite ethical, small shop, sustainable giveback baby brands - and the products we have been using and loving in our everyday life!
