Important Dates to Know!

We've got lots going on these days and I know as a new #horsefeatherstribe member you might be feeling a bit lost. So i'm here to break it down for ya :) 

 

1st of the month -Meaningful Bits Subscription Box

On the first day of each month at 9am CST we open spots for our subscription box. This is a fun surprise piece of jewelry delivered monthly. The pieces vary from bracelet, rings, earrings and necklaces. They come packaged in an adorable little box and make the perfect gift for yourself or a friend. If you ever received a piece that isn't 100% your style we highly recommend tucking it away for the next time you need a last minute gift ;)  You can read all the details here.

 

15th of the month- Limited Edition Stack of the Month

If you're looking to elevate your arm party ASAP then this is for you! Each month I design a stack that is sold exclusively as a set at a discounted price. These stacks vary from 4-6 bracelets and are limited to the month we launch them in ( although they generally sell out within an hour or so). They go live at 9am CST on the 15th of the month so be sure to sign up for email notifications here

Blooming Babes Interview: Melanie Hodskins

Blooming Babes Interview: Melanie Hodskins

Hey friends! I am Melanie. The owner and photographer of Melanie Hodskins Photography. I have been married 10 years this year! Woo hoo! And we have 3 of the sweetest little humans you have ever met. Or maybe I am just a teeny bit biased. 



What’s your favorite part about your job?
Letting my creative vibes flow!

What’s your least favorite part?
The algorithms of social media.

What’s your favorite product offer?
My keepsake albums are my favorite products. I am obsessed with albums.

What advice do you wish someone would have given you when you started out? 
Find you style and stick with it. I have bounced between light and airy and dark and moody, posed and unposed, dressy and casual. Finally in 2018, I finally had my style down and perfected. If I had to put it into words I would say my style is romantic and raw.

Where's your favorite place to work? 
In my studio. This is a space that I have created that really speaks to me and allows my vision to come forth.

What inspired you to start your own biz?
The love of creating moments between people that will be treasured for lifetimes to come. 

Is this a side hustle or your full time gig?
Full time, finally!

How long did you side hustle before going full time ?
I also have a college degree. I worked as a Surgical Tech in labor and delivery also. I LOVE that position also. After my third child was born and my business was out of control busy, I went down to 1 day a month in labor. So I have been full time almost a year. But really as busy as I have been I would say I have been full time longer. I just basically worked both full time positions.

Anything else you'd like to share?
I have created a special experience for my clients. My goal is to do all of the work for you from start to finish, from wardrobe to product to posing, I have you covered.

Blooming Babes Interview: The Kayla Ray

Blooming Babes Interview: The Kayla Ray
 

Hey! I'm Kayla, a 26year old wanting to retire but can’t quite do that yet. I’m a banker by day,  Brand Director here at HFG during smoke breaks ( since I don't smoke) and Rodan & Fields consultant by night.

Favorite quote:

It’s a good day to have a good day

 

How long have you been in business?

3 months

Why did you choose Rodan & Fields to invest your energy into? 

I wanted to be able to give people their confidence back. Skin is very noticeable and can kill your confidence if it’s really bad. Growing up I had such terrible acne that some days I would stay home from school. After so long of dealing with terrible confidence you just let yourself go and you have no motivation so I didn’t do anything to benefit my life. Gained weight, looked like a slob, had terrible skin, just 100% shut down. After seeing RF work , I tried a partial regimen and once I saw the difference that made in my skin I bought the whole thing. Two years into using it I can now go without makeup and feel great! So I decided to invest my time into helping other get their confidence back! 
rodan and fields skincare routine  

What’s your favorite part about your job?

Helping give people their confidence back that their shit skin took away from them.

What’s your least favorite part?

My day job doesn’t allow me to give my all to growing my Rodan & Fields business.

What’s your favorite product from your line?

The microdermabrasion paste. Makes your face feel like a babies booty. 

What advice do you wish someone would have given you when you started out? 

Start before you're ready. You'll never be 100% ready to start anything. If you keep coming up with excuses then you'll never start. 

Where's your favorite place to work on your business? 

Anywhere the sun is shining and I can be outside in it.

Which Golden Girl do you relate to the most?

Blooming Babes Interview: Love Mich, Inc.

Blooming Babes Interview: Love Mich, Inc.

Hey! My name is Michelle Provencher and I am a wife and mama to 3 year old wild child. I am also the owner/founder/creator of Love Mich, Inc. We are a company that specialized in accessories handmade in the USA and best known for our coffee cozies!

 

 

What's your favorite part of running Love Mich?

My favorite part of my job is curating our print collections! And brainstorming/dreaming up future plans! 

 

What’s your least favorite part?

Anything to do with bookkeeping/accounting!

 

What’s your favorite product you create?

My favorite product is our original iced coffee cozy! We also have a community of Love Mich supporters that I am so grateful for. I can't decide what I love more, the products we make or the community we have built!

 

Biggest lesson learned? 

You will never be able to please everyone, and that's ok! Don't let it eat you up inside.

 

Where's your favorite place to work on Love Mich? 

My favorite place to create is in our studio because it is surrounded by piles of fabric and notions! But if I need to get more "business" type tasks done or writing, then I love a good coffee shop or the corner of my couch!

 

Which Golden Girl is your spirit animal?

Sophia

 

What inspired you to start Love Mich?

I've always loved fashion and wanted my own fashion empire for as long as I can remember. It always felt like it was my natural path in life, like there was no question that that was what I would do.

Is this a side hustle or your full time gig?

Full time gig (and then some!)

 

How long did you side hustle before going full time ?

I side hustled for 8 years before I quit my full time job as a paralegal to run my business! It was A LOT of late nights, early mornings, and weekends full of creating and building for Love Mich before I could seriously consider making the jump. Even then, it was a risk, but it was a risk that I knew I couldn't NOT take. And I'm so glad I did!

 

Anything bits of wisdom you'd like to share?

Yes! I have a message for any of the ladies out there with a dream so big they are afraid to share it with others. I'm here to tell you not to let anyone influence or limit your dreams. Your dreams are not too big! Do you know how many people looked at me like I was insane when I said I was building an empire? And then when I told them I was building it with these cute little coffee cup sleeves/outfits that no one knew about? Haha - A LOT. But I knew what I wanted and what I could do, I believed it wholeheartedly and didn't let anyone sway me. You have to be the one to be all in on your dream until others catch up. As long as you put in the work, you are authentic, and believe in yourself and what you are doing a million percent, they will catch up and you will achieve your wildest dreams! You are a bad ass. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Why We Love Olive Wood Beads

Why We Love Olive Wood Beads

Pruning – The organic process of removing the old to make room for the new. Making space for growth. Natural, healthy, inspiring.

Our wooden beads are derived from this process. They come from olive branches removed during seasonal pruning. They come from the process of life and growth. 

The olive trees from which our beads are made have been growing in the Holy Lands for thousands of years. The heart of civilization. The cradle of faith. Born out of growth and produced by a family business in Nazareth. 

These beads can double as essential oil diffusers. Simply add 1-2 drops of essential oil to the lava rock beads or wood beads and rub gently to help the oil absorb.  

The scent will last several hours or even all day, depending on the oil. Re-apply the same oil or a different oil when you need a little pick-me-up.

How To Use An Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet

How To Use An Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet

Our modern aromatherapy diffuser jewelry is made with olive wood beads that have been growing in the Holy Lands of Israel for thousands of years.

Essential oil diffuser jewelry is the perfect way to take your oils on the go.

 

How to use:
Add 1-2 drops of essential oil to the wood bead(s) for an all day diffuser. 
Switch or add oils whenever you need.
These pieces can be worn with or without oils. 

 

* We recommend only using 100% therapeutic grade essential oils on our wood beads. Drug store oils contain fillers and artificial ingredients that will damage the olive wood or lava beads.  

Wether you're using them for emotional support or a natural perfume alternative, we've got you covered with some amazing recipes.
