PARTNERS IN CONSIGN

FLYWHEEL FEATURE FRIDAY // ARTICLE CONSIGNMENT

It’s no secret that we love Article Consignment. From the first day we met the owners, Abe and his wife Val, we were in deep smit. Since then, we’ve collaborated a ton – from our Charity Fashion Show event and my birthday party hosted at their shop, to walking the runway in their clothes a number of times, we’re happy to be in this whole Sacramento fashion thing with them. 

OH, GOODNESS.

OH, GOODNESS.

Well, HI strangers! 

I’ll bet you didn’t remember we even have a blog, as it’s been so long since we’ve posted anything here. And by “so long”…  oy vey. Embarrassing. So here’s the deal– you need to know the good stuff that’s happening here in Sacramento, and we’re ALWAYS in the thick of it. But because there’s so much goodness, and it takes a ton of time and effort to make it so good, blogging everything is just plain daunting and then ends up not happening. This operation (blog aside) is a TON of work. Later this week we’ll be posting opportunities for you to get involved with what’s happening here at JJ, one of which is an intern –> paid position.

Nursing Necklaces - The Modern Solution to an Old Dilemma

Nursing Necklaces - The Modern Solution to an Old Dilemma

Babies become distracted after the first pangs of hunger have been satisfied.  So they stop eating, pull away from the nipple, and begin playing with anything within their reach.  This can be Mom's hair, an earring, a necklace, clothing, in other words, if they can reach it, they will pull on it or play with it. 

Developmentally, this is an important time.  The baby is exploring her world; learning how to focus the eyes, using the sense of touch to discover all the wonders around.  While very cute, it is hard on the hair, jewelry - well, you get the point.

POLL: What kind of makeup can you never have enough of?

POLL: What kind of makeup can you never have enough of?

I saw this story on Good Morning America today about women who hoard makeup - they can never get enough of one kind or another. And then I looked at my bathroom counter and counted up 10 tubes of lipstick of slightly various shades. Do I really need 3 tubes of Color Sensations Totally Toffee? Really? Apparently I do.

So, what's your favorite makeup and do you buy way more of it than you need? Come on, 'fess up!
