new fall candles

To celebrate the coziness of the upcoming Fall/Winter months, we are introducing two new candles into our lineup: NOBLE and GARDEN. These candles are hand-poured in Brooklyn, using a blend of soy, vegetable and beeswax, with a 100% cotton wick. The burn time is approximately 50 hours. Candles make a wonderful gift item!

rj

RJ moved into the studio space across the way from us a year and a half ago and life has not been the same since! She is wildly funny, stylish, and a caring mama with lots of advice to dispense. She transformed her studio into a ceramics haven, with hot kilns and clay everywhere, and now I'm lucky enough to own a few pieces of her amazing jewelry holders. RJ also introduced me to Brazilian cheese bread and for that move alone, she wins. 

Name: Re Jin Lee

Occupation: Ceramicist

Hometown: Sao Paulo, Brazil

Where do you currently reside?: Brooklyn, NY

Favorite MCMC fragrance: At this moment, Garden. Before this moment, Dude No. 1

When did you first start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: Oh man, that's hard. The furthest I can go back in memory lane is the time I was crazy about Colors by Benetton.

If you were a plant, what would you be?: A rose

What's in your refrigerator right now?: Lots of Coca Cola and baby yogurt

Three words that describe you: Simple, intense, gullible

myrtle & sage

So...LA was amazing. One of the highlights was a twilight hike at Runyon Canyon. As the sun set, the tiny buildings and houses and cars began to light up and we could see the city stretch for miles underneath. While I don't see myself leaving NYC any time soon, California does have that Californication appeal.

As we walked the dry brush emitted sweet, herbal smells. I stopped to pick sage leaves, crushing them between my fingers and releasing their scent. There was another bush; I think it was myrtle. I love myrtle, with it's fruity, almost apricot note.

To see more of what we did in LA, check out our instagram.

We ate: Pine and Crane, In-N-Out, Blockheads Shaved Ice, Sweet Rose Creamery, Axe and Sugarfish Sushi.

We shopped: Clare Vivier, Dream Collective, MyrtleBroome Street General, Tradesmen, General Store, Tenoversix, Mohawk General Store, and Tortoise General Store.

We chilled: Runyon Canyon, Point Dume, and Korean karaoke.

Thanks to Jennifer for the photos above.

a cup of jo: jenny gordy of wiksten's beauty uniform

A couple of years ago my beautiful friend Jenny Gordy moved to Iowa, making all of us here in Brooklyn who knew her so sad. She's quirky and witty, as well as talented and kind. Today she shares her beauty routine and tips on Cup of Jo and it makes me smile to think of her far away but wearing NOBLE on dates, and borrowing her husband's sweaters for the hint of Dude No.1 Beard Oil.

See her full Beauty Uniform here.
