Who We Help And Why We Do It

One of my favorite authors of all time, Ralph Waldo Emerson, once said, “It is one of the beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” I’ve seen the quote in a few different forms around the Internet, of course, as there’s nothing like the web for […]

What is Alpaca Fiber?

Object Mythology and You: Promoting Sustainability and Looking Good Doing It

Footloose and Finger Free!

I admit I’m in love with my iPhone. It’s a problem, I realize. I also realize I’m not alone. So here’s my tip of the day for you over-texting, constantly downloading, on-the-go emailers: you don’t have to choose between frostbite and quickly answering your clients while you hail a cab anymore. Technology has hooked up […]

Snuggle Up With An Alpaca-Wrapped I-Heart Hot Water Bottle This Winter!

February is still cold and flu season, and there’s nothing I like less than the chills a fever brings. For those too-hot-with-the-blanket, too-cold-without-it nights of battling it out with the germs, a hot water bottle is just what the doctor ordered.

Snuggle Up With Baby Alpaca Scarves and Throws!

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of that favorite scarf around your neck, keeping you cozy and warm while you’re wrapped in velvety softness (even on the train platform). Still, I just can’t think of a good excuse for wearing my Infinity Scarves in the house all evening once I’m home and in my pajamas, […]
