"Hello, Lovely" Box by Urban Oreganics

Anyone who knows me, or at least follows my brand, knows that I have a HUGE crush on Urban Oreganics. This mama-run, botanical apothecary has provided all of my skin care products for the last two years. My obsession is worthy as my skin is absolutely flawless since I discovered this brand. The owner, Emily, is a mother of two boys and lives up in Oregon with her hubby. The family wholly practices a minimalist, vegan lifestyle from their food choices to the way they are remodeling their stunning new home. I'm always on the hunt, a little stalker-ish I...

Happy 3rd Shopaversary!

Well, it's official... BayBee Boutique opened it's virtual doors three years ago TODAY. Although the shop looks drastically different today than it did back in 2014, our message is the same; I still strive to find the BEST natural products for you and your baby. When I was pregnant with our first son, Jaxon, my husband and I decided it would be best for me to stay home for his first year earthside. It was a difficult decision for me to make.

Meet the Maker: Random Rompers

This week we are catching up with a fellow Texas entrepreneur, Krystal from Random Rompers. Read below how she turned a side-job into a flourishing romper clothing line. *** Tell us a little about your brand:Krystal: I have been sewing for almost 15 years now, but Random Rompers actually started by accident. At the time I had a custom and production sewing company making clothes for people and designers. We hit a few hard months and were so behind on bills.
