London Suds specialize in Olive Oil, Goats Milk & Honey based soaps.

I had the opportunity to test a few products from London Suds!
I tried a oatmeal, milk & honey soap bar, lemon verbena & olive oil, strawberry milkshake lip balm, and chocolate orange truffle lip balm.

Each item was made with such loving care! I have very sensitive skin and the oatmeal, milk & honey soap was amazing as well as the lemon verbena & olive oil. 

The lip balms were truly amazing. I am not usually a chocolate lip balm person but I loved this one! It smells amazing and feels amazing. The strawberry milkshake lip balm was my favorite! It keep my lips moisturized and I love that each lip balm has the ingredients listed on the label! Shea butter, avocado butter, sweet almond oil, and beeswax = yes please!

What I Wore - Introducing: Cat & Goat and {{Giveaway}}


I love the company Cat & Goat. Not only for the catchy name of the store but the products are so unique. The earrings seen above you may think they just resemble feathers but the material they are made from is amazing.

The earrings in Cat & Goat are made from recycle bicycle inner tubes! Not only do they look amazing but they are light, soft, and environmentally friendly. How the creator of Cat & Goat came up with this collection is truly genius. 


Meet Catherine the creator of Cat & Goat:



My name is Catherine Brown, and I love art, cats, and bicycles. I haven’t yet figured out how to combine the 3, but through my shop, Cat & Goat, I get to create beautiful pieces of wearable art with bicycle parts! Originally I started selling my bicycle tire earrings as a way to fundraising for a 6 week bicycle trip, but I have had so much fun designing and creating the earrings that I decided to continue making them. Customers love this jewelry because it is simple, environmental friendly (you can’t recycle bicycle inner tubes), and light. So try on a pair & I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I love making them!

Here is a link on how to make the earrings if you want to try it out for yourself: DIY


Here are a few of my favorites from Cat & Goat

What I Wore - Introducing: Just The Good Stuff






    Sweater: Kohls
    Tank Top: Target
    Glasses: Just The Good Stuff

Featuring Item: Glasses from Just The Good Stuff

I am such a fan of the selection of glasses from Just The Good Stuff! I love a pair of vintage eye glasses and how adorable are these two. They arrived in perfect condition and would be the perfect accessory to any outfit. I'm just lucky I actually need glasses. 

Meet Cherrie the owner of Just The Good Stuff

About: 
I am a wife and mother who loves to go to estate sales. Estate sales for me are not just filled with wonderful vintage items, I go to experience the former owner's legacy and how they lived their wonderful life. 

I feel I have a mission to 'rescue' some of the more interesting items and find new homes for them. For this reason I don't look at myself as a reseller but more as a curator.

Enjoy having a look around, and make sure to check back often, because I go to estate sales at least once a week. Say hi, visit my blog, and if you have time visit my Facebook page (post on my timeline!!).
