Digital Detox: Wool and the Gang Hosts Knitting Parties Across the US

As more and more Millennials, the “Maker Generation,” continue to fuel the growth of the DIY and craft sector, Wool and the Gang looks to meet this demand by hosting more than 1,000 knitting parties in cities around the world before the end of 2015. Anyone interested in attending one of Wool and the Gang’s parties can find more information at the link below, which is being updated throughout the season as more cities and locations are added:

What’s more, people who are unable to attend one of these events also have the option of hosting their own at home or work – a private party for friends, bridesmaids, golf buddies, yoga or spin pals, and more  – offering a discount on the supplies with a party video to accompany the project.

Wool and the Gang is a British fashion brand powered by the “maker movement.”  That is, each and every item is available for purchase as a knit kit with all of the materials you need to make your own or – for those not as DIY-inclined – can come ready-made, handcrafted by a gang of makers from around the world.  They also offer “Wool School” - online video tutorials with step-by-step directions to learn each stitch and knitting skill.

Pestle & Mortar Cosmetics Launches in the US

We are excited to announce the launch of the family-owned Irish skincare and beauty brand Pestle & Mortar Cosmetics, and their signature product, Pure Hyaluronic Serum in the US this week.

Pestle & Mortar was founded in Ireland in November 2014 by Sonia Deasy, a stunning mother of five who wanted a quick way to make her skin look – and feel – young and refreshed. In addition, she frequently traveled the world with her internationally acclaimed photographer husband, Padraic Deasy, and realized how harsh, dry and dull skin looked behind a camera lens. So, Sonia linked up with her biochemist sister to create a solution …and Pestle & Mortar’s game-changing Pure Hyaluronic Serum was born. 

The company and product launched to HUGE success (and many repeat customers) – which is why it’s making its way across the pond today. The elegantly packaged serum (reminiscent of something that would be found in a modern-day apothecary) contains 80% hyaluronic acid, an ingredient proven to hydrate and soothe even the most sensitive skin while also smoothing fine lines and restoring youthful elasticity. The difference between P&M’s serum and others on the market? Coined by existing customers as a "photo filter in a dropper,” P&M’s serum produces instant, photo-ready results. Quickly absorbing into skin, and NOT sticky or tacky, the serum is a totally different experience and product than most hyaluronic products on the market today.
