It’s heating up out there, so grab a nice, cold glass of lemonade and dive into our favorite brands of the month!


If I Made

If I Made serves as a one-of-a-kind learning source for creative-minded and entrepreneurial spirits. The company collaborates with experts in various artistic fields to create online courses that “bridge the gap between the aspirational and the attainable.” This brand wants people to know they really can have it all by combining their passions for creativity and business!

Why We Love Them:
  • Detail-Oriented: A great deal of time and thought goes into each course the company creates! After a week of analysis, a month of interviewing experts, and hundreds of questions later, a class filled with videos and worksheets is officially made.

  • Elegant Branding: Pretty pastels cover the brand’s webpages and social media feeds. The company may offer a variety of services to a diverse customer base, but it stays true to its identity with its signature soft tones and product photography.

  • Diverse Education: This company has a little something for every creative! With classes ranging from floral design, cake decorating, styling, and much more, one can become an expert in a particular niche or a jack of all trades.

As an online, one-stop gift shop, Greetabl’s mission is to help people send their love without breaking the bank! With an in-depth collection of gifts and packaging designs, there is a perfect present for any individual. The founders brought their backgrounds of business and design together to craft a company where happiness can be both created and delivered!

Why We Love Them:
  • Sweet and Simple Process:  Greetabl believes in gifting made simple! All customers have to do is complete a quick three-step online ordering process: choose a decorative package, pick a gift, ship it out.

  • Fun Marketing: The company may specialize in variety, but its marketing is clean and consistent! Popping shades of yellow, pink, blue, green, and much more comprise its social media and packaging, catching the eyes of customers and conveying its core value of happiness for all.

  • Creative Customization: Great things come in small packages, and so do the perfect gifts! Greetabl’s extensive category of packaging prints and presents makes it possible to find something for everyone’s unique styles and tastes.

TAHNYC (pronounced “tonic”) is on a mission to serve those with sensitive skin! Its passion for clean beauty and confidence make it the perfect partner-in-crime for those facing skin troubles. The brand is known for the dewy consistency of its products and the promise to use nothing but the most powerful ingredients.

Why We Love Them:
  • Dedication: TAHNYC proves its commitment to pure skincare by making sure all of its products are in line with company values.  Every item is absent of harsh materials, such as sulfate, phthalates, essential oils, and fragrances.

  • Understanding Company Culture: We appreciate the understanding nature of this company’s culture. TAHNYC acknowledges that every skin type and struggle is unique and has products available to meet the needs of all!

  • Strong Brand Identity: The branding of this company is as bright and dewy as the products! A sense of consistency and flow exist among its digital platforms thanks to its minimal color scheme and bold pops of color.

TAHNYC feels like Dew💧Our signature Dew consistency is what All our products feel like because we do not add bulking, filling, texturizing add-ons. We use Powerful Ingredients and Nothing Else. . Fillers in products are inactive ingredients that are used to create feel, texture, lubrication and bulk. Fillers don’t enhance the product's effectiveness in any way, they’re not necessarily there for your skin. If you’re wondering why they’re used, primarily it’s to give a product a feel, texture or slip on your skin, and to fill out the product. Less is More. Choose You.  #personalizedskincare #tahnyc . . : . . #cleanbeauty #sustainablestyle #sustainableluxury #onthegobeauty #byrdiebeauty #sustainablelyfestyle #ecoluxury #ecobeauty #beautyflatlay #luxebrands #koreanskincare #makeuplife #itgtopshelfie #skincareguru #ABcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #skincarelover #skincareregime #skincareproduct #skincarecommunity #beautycommunity #kbeauty #nontoxicbeauty #getglowing #discoverunder5k #acnescarring

Fool’s Gold

Fool’s Gold is a design studio and lifestyle boutique based in Flagstaff, Arizona! The belief that beautiful clothes and beautiful experiences can go hand-in-hand inspired founders Meredith and Michael to create a brand that tells an authentic story. Customers can score everything from outfits to home decor in this shop!

Why We Love Them:
  • Solid Core Values: Fool’s Gold bases its business practices on ethics and sustainability. Its collection of highly-curated items are created for a socially-conscious market in which environmental standards are of the utmost importance!

  • Relaxed Vibe: This company goes above and beyond to make sure its customers and employees have a unique experience with it! The owners take into consideration everything from the original artwork on the walls, the eclectic playlists sounding through the speakers, to the decor of the workspace.

  • Ethical Practices: Fool’s Gold values quality over quantity. Despite the fast-paced fashion world that exists today, this company chooses to work with an intimate supply chain of small brands from the US.

Bean Box is on a mission to bring the local Seattle coffee experience to all! Originally from the software engineering world, the founders believe coffee is the fuel behind many technological innovations. By combining presentation, aroma, and taste, they hope to inspire coffee drinkers around the country through their online service.  

Why We Love Them:
  • Company’s Story: By combining their passions for technology and coffee, the Bean Box founders were able to make the classic Seattle coffee experience transportable. Don’t miss out on the finest coffee roasters in the country simply because you’re out of state.

  • Wide Variety: Bean Box understands that everyone’s coffee tastes and needs are unique. Customers can choose from 657 different coffees sourced from 25 small-batch Seattle roasters. Whether you’re a light, medium, or dark roast kinda gal or prefer espresso, this company has it all.

  • Flatlay Experts: A quick peek at Bean Box’s Instagram will give you some major photo flatlay inspiration! It shows off its products in a clean and eye-catching way that’ll leave you scrolling through the feed all day.
