Etsy Shop Spotlight: Cord x Clay

Etsy Shop Spotlight: Cord x Clay

I’m not sure why—maybe it’s the fact that we’re still just a few weeks into 2019—but this morning feels like a really good time to kick off a brand new series. The topic? Small business shops on Etsy! It probably has a little something to do with the fact that I launched my own shop just last year, but I feel this really strong urge to spotlight the makers, artists, and curators who make their living on Etsy.

First up I wanted to swing the light over to cord x clay. I honestly don’t remember how I stumbled upon this shop in the first place, but I sure am glad that I did. It’s packed with gorgeous handmade goodies for your kitchen, your closet, and even your walls. Keep scrolling to see a few of the pieces that caught my eye from the cord x clay shop.

Favorites From Cord x Clay

1. Woven Tapestry Hanging

2. Handmade Ceramic Spoon

3. Mini Speckled Ceramic Dishes

4. Speckled Ceramic Planter

5. Speckled Ceramic Dish

6. Wrapped Multicolor Tassel Fringe Earrings

7. Long Tapestry Fiber Necklace

8. White Porcelain Ceramic Vase

Elisa and Evelyn have a style that fits right in with our aesthetic here at home—neutral, organic, and the perfect blend of casual elegance. Take a second look at that White Porcelain Ceramic Vase to see what I mean. You could toss a couple flower stems in it for every day, or display it by itself on a shelf as art—either way, it’s something I could see us having in our collection for years and years.

What’s your favorite piece from that list above? Let me know in the comments, then hop over to Etsy here and give the cord x clay shop some love!

12 Face Masks To Inspire Self-Care

12 Face Masks To Inspire Self-Care

Only two-ish weeks until Christmas, which means we’re also that many weeks away from some much-deserved time off! At least I hope that’s the case for all of you.

As an entrepreneur I don’t get perks like paid time off or health benefits, so this time of year is the one time I really allow myself to indulge. I take two full weeks off between Christmas and New Years, and that time has come to mean a lot of things for me. I use it to catch up on home projects, plan a few extra special things for the blog (I’m considering a site redesign this year!), and I also try my best to prioritize self-care in the form of uninterrupted down time.

This fall-to-winter transition has felt especially dry, a fact proven by the state of my skin. So, I’m currently on the hunt for a new face mask or two to add to my collection as I gear up for time off. At-home facials are one of my very favorite ways to relax, and these 12 are at the top of my wishlist right now.

12 Face Masks To Inspire Self-Care

1. YOUTHMUD Tinglexfoliate Treatment

2. Water Replenishment Cotton Sheet Mask

3. Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask

4. Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy

5. Lifting and Firming Mask

6. Hello, Calm Relaxing & Hydrating Face Mask with Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil

7. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

8. Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask

9. Overtime Mask

10. Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask

11. Rose Face Mask

12. Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer

Have you ever done an at-home face mask, or do you prefer going to see a professional? I’ve gotten a pro facial once in my life, and it really was pretty magical. I remember it being a little overwhelming in the moment (all that steam, the plethora of scents), but I might just have to treat myself to one in the new year. Until then, though, I’m going to invest in one of these options above to tide me over during the holidays. Let me know if you’ve got a favorite that I didn’t list in today’s post. Oh, and don’t forget that any one of these masks makes a great Christmas gift, too…Just saying!
