I feel very empowered and proud as a woman owned business, and what makes me even prouder is to also be able to support and cheer on other female small business owners who impress me with their creativity, hard work and talent. I have been so lucky to meet many cool artists over these last 9+ years, but when it's a fellow girlboss, and even better, someone based locally, I can't help but want to brag about them being a part of The Little Apple!
Here at The Little Apple, we have multiple product lines from incredible brands that function with a purpose and/or donate a portion of their sales to causes that make an impact by shedding a little light into the world and make things a little brighter for us all. It feels great to buy a product you love, and it feels even better to know that you're helping a good cause in the process.
Rainbows are said to symbolize beautiful things like hope, good luck, new beginnings, and equality. So how amazing is it that the month it seems like we may actually be turning the corner in this pandemic is also Pride Month, which is celebrated and represented with…rainbows!? I also love to bring cute, rainbow items into the shop at every opportunity I can, so I put together a compilation of my top 10 faves in the store right now!
Let's be honest, this past year has been hard. The pandemic has affected us all in so many different and life changing ways. With two very young and needy children in my house, I don't have much time or many options for "me time", but here are a few on my favorite things that I've found instantly make me feel happier, calmer, and a lot less twitchy!
This month we asked our friend & resident Little Apple, Shayna, (a master of health, wellness and all-around great vibes) to share one of her favorite Meditation practices for the blog. And can we just mention that Lizzo is a part of it and so is another discount code!!!
