All I want for Christmas is... more local products

Christmas is in the air!!! And as always I am looking out for what ort local brands have to offer, because in case you're new here, ya girl supports local hard over here and nothing makes me happier than being able in some small way to contribute to the growth of our local brands. If you haven't given local a chance, you are missing out! And here are some brands that I have my eye on just time for the holiday season. This list focuses on things that aren't so much beauty and skin care, but for the most part, dives a bit into fashion, home decor and lifestyle. 

BoHome Creations (Instagram): Macramé accessories for home and lifestyle

D'Punchline (Facebook, Instagram, Website): Leather bags and accessories

Ear and Co. (Facebook, Instagram, Website): Polymer clay jewellery

Made for You (Instagram): Clothing

Sarah Jo Designs (Facebook, Instagram, Website): Handbags, clutches and totes

Shivonne Subero Label (Facebook, Instagram)

The Brand Ade (Facebook, Instagram): Polymer Clay jewellery

The Palette (Instagram): Ceramics

Tobaglo Cosmetics (Facebook, Instagram, Website)

Very Verde (Facebook, Instagram, Website): Concrete wearables and lifestyle pieces

Now if you know me, you'd know that this list is just the tip of the iceberg as to the local things I want to get my hands on. Feel free to use it as a starting point as you begin to explore local in times for the season. There are so many wonderful local brands to discover and the best part is, there is something local for everyone. Just be open to it. 

As for me, I will subtly share this list with my husband so that he cannot claim that he doesn't know what to get me. Beloved, WHEN you see this, you can start with that palette from Tobaglo Cosmetics.

Happy Shopping!!
