If a “silk” scarf is being sold brand new for about $5, I start to wonder if it really is made of silk. I always thought that silk was such a luxury material, and I can’t really tell whether the silk is genuine. Well, designer Joan Reese has an Etsy shop that showcases her beautiful original hand-painted silk scarf creations. She also tries to educate consumers on what is real vs. what isn’t really silk on her Youtube page.
I don’t know about you, but I wear even my lighter scarves all year round. That’s because even when your winter coat is off, a scarf is a nice addition to your overall outfit. I don’t ever put away my lighter scarves away once the season gets colder, because I can also wear them as a head or hair piece.
Joan’s scarves are elegant, unique, 100% silk made from French imported dyes (colors stay permanent), and can be washed in cool water and shampoo. They are all individually signed, hand-hemmed, and are long enough to do all sorts of styling with (11″x60″).
If you feel like giving a wonderful woman in your life this Christmas an original scarf creation, Joan also accepts personalization. Receive 10% off when you become a fan of hers on Facebook.

Please welcome my newest sponsor, Mili Bra. I finally found a bra that looks smooth under a t-shirt! Their bras are made out of pure cotton ALL over, so the cups inside are not made with synthetic material, which is what you get with most “cotton bras.” I’ve been having back problems lately, and I think it’s because my bras aren’t very comfortable to wear. Mili Bra is very soft to the touch and is made from breathable material (check out each layer close up), so you can probably sleep in these if you want to. No more rashes, itchiness, sweat, or scratchy elastics. The bras aren’t lumpy, so you can wear them without seeing bumps on your back or shoulders… which can get really unslightly, unless you are somehow into the reptile look?
What’s awesome is that Mili Bra’s design is patented, so you’re getting something completely new—and frankly, will probably change your life (as far as comfy underwear go). Their website is also distraction-free, having mostly just photos of the actual undergarments on there without models. I think in this case, you can live with not being able to see how something looks on someone—it’s just for chilling out :) It’s $39 each, but I think it’s definitely heavenly. So give it a try!
