When trying to kill some time before dinner yesterday in the West Village, I stumbled upon CO Bigelow Pharmacy. I really only walked in to see what scents they have (love me some good scents), and ended up falling in love with this store! It’s really not just a pharmacy – the store also carries perfumes, lotions, soaps, candles, journals, and more, from all these great brands such as CO Bigelow. This week’s most wanted is a CO Bigelow Eau De Parfum Spray that smells like Ginger Mentha, aka amazing.
I will be traveling over the weekend and the next week for the holidays, so please excuse my lack of writing for a week. Happy Holidays to all!
CO Bigelow, Ginger Mentha Eau De Parfum, $24.15
“Power, influence, strength – all those things can overpower what’s important in life. But as long as you food and shelter over your head, if the necessities are taken care of, what makes us happy on top of that is very simple.” -Meryl Streep
During this holiday season, I think it’s important to remember those less fortunate than us. What better way to start the week than with a humble quote from the beautiful and talented Meryl Streep (one of my all time favorite actresses).

I saw EMU boots similar to these at a little boutique in the Poconos and loved them. I’ve always been a huge fan of EMU’s vs UGGS (although I’ll give UGGS some love as well!). I love the deep brown color of these boots and they look like they would be so warm inside.
Kembla Boots, $299
Thanks to all those who came to shop The Striped Elephant Shop’s table at the Astoria Holiday Market this weekend – it was a great success! Below is a photo of me and my table at the market. Now for your Monday quote.
“Remember that your level of happiness is the most important thing you have to protect, because if your’e caught up in the rat race of work and duty and money, you do not live beyond your means. I don’t care whether the person next to you is making a million bucks and you’re making way less. If you judge yourself by that person, you’re not judging yourself by your intrinsic joy and what makes you feel happy.” -Actress Goldie Hawn
The Striped Elephant Shop at Astoria Holiday Market
Instead of a Friday’s Most Wanted post, I wanted to share with you the date, location, and time of the Holiday Market that The Striped Elephant Shop will be a part of this Sunday, as mentioned in a previous blog post. The Holiday Market will take place in Astoria, NY, this Sunday, Dec. 8, from 12 – 6 pm. For more information, take a look at the photo below.
The Striped Elephant Shop will be selling all homemade and animal-friendly jewelry and tote bags at the market. A portion of the proceeds will go towards helping the elephants and the elimination of the ivory trade. For more information about the cause click here.
Www.shop.thestripedelephant.com, is still under construction, but feel free to visit The Striped Elephant Shop’s Tumblr account, where you can purchase some of the products.Hope you all have a great weekend, and hope to see some of your lovely faces at the market!
Hello friends, hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend. I for one did not want to return back to work (but who ever does?!). I wanted to apologize for being such a “blog-slacker” lately, for lack of a better term. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been working on a ton of jewelry pieces, that will be sold at the Astoria Holiday Market this Sunday, as part of The Striped Elephant Shop. I will write-up a post later in the week with additional information, and am hoping to get back to my regular writing schedule soon! Here is today’s quote…it’s one I need to keep in my mind when living out each day.
“Remind yourself that in the end there is really nothing to be afraid of. Somehow things always come together, just maybe not the way you plan or expect.” -Maria Pinto, Fashion Designer
