Vintage Swim: Pip & Estella and Limegreen Marbled Wood Candles

I know I've been away for a while but we are working on some exciting things for the Pip & Estella shop! Here's the evidence -- a collaborative line of hand-poured soy wax candles made by Brooklyn artisans, Limegreen with certified organic ingredients and outfitted in Pip & Estella vintage.

I'm super excited to have our candles in Pure Green Magazine, whom I just love -- their mission and their style! Aren't I in great company with these eco picks?! Check out their fall issue! (And find our candle here.) I will be back to post just as soon as I can! See you all soon and thanks so much for all of the lovely comments on prior posts!

A Photo Series On Enjoying Life Part II: An Evening At Saugerties Lighthouse

I mean really, what's better than fresh preserves and berry bars over a sunset on the Hudson River? Sure there are a few other things in New York, but not many in the dog days of summer. We stopped into our favorite organic bakery, Bread Alone and headed to the lighthouse for a quick dip in the Hudson to escape the heat.

Can you believe it's almost over? I've been busy working on new product for the Pip & Estella online shop as well as details on our upcoming Pop Up Shop in Brooklyn! The last couple of weeks have been a blur, but I'm making sure to slow down time as Saturdays roll around. It's all about balance. :)

How will you spend the last days of summer? In your town? On vacation?
