Bee's Wrap: Sustainable Food Storage

It's our favorite time of the year here at The Lamb List. The holidays are coming and we have so many fun and festive goodies to share with you over the coming weeks. To kick off the holiday season, we're sharing our favorite new food storage solution - Bee's Wrap.
Bee's Wrap is made with organic cotton muslin, beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin. The antibacterial properties of the beeswax and jojoba oil help to keep food fresh and allow you to use the Bee's Wrap again and again. It sure beats plastic wrap. Bee's Wrap is a unique gift for the food lovers in your life and be sure to grab some for yourself too. They will surely come in handy during holiday baking.

Scented Sensory Bins For Fall

Since many of my readers also happen to be parents, I've decided to begin featuring kid-friendly crafts and activities in between my regular posts. So to kick off fall, today is all about making autumn-themed sensory bins. I went to Whole Foods and loaded up on various grains and other dried goods in the bulk section to fill up the bin. I chose orzo, rice, pasta, dried split peas and soy beans. I then scented these items with a dash of cinnamon bark extract and pumpkin pie spice. Toss in some scented pine cones, acorns, gourds, cinnamon sticks, fall leaves and any other seasonal items you might have around the house or in your backyard. And don't forget to add small shovels, rakes, spoons and cups, then let the little ones enjoy!

Ashlyn'd Acrylic Clutches

My most dapper cousin turned me on to these drool-worthy Ashlyn'd clutches after spotting one filled with hot pink sand at DASH Miami. The handmade acrylic clutches come filled with sand, chains, beads as well as other interesting designs. Until Ashlyn'd opens their online store which is coming soon, the bags can be hard to come by. DASH Miami has a limited selection and ShopBop also has two special editions currently available including this chalkboard version and berry edition. You can also score a few Ashlyn'd bags on eBay.

Dumyé Dolls: Dolls With Purpose

While browsing my Facebook news feed, I noticed a post from a friend of mine, Sahar Wahbeh, about some charming little dolls called Dumyé Dolls. Dolls with purpose. I was intrigued.

Not only are the dolls themselves lovely, but the idea behind the dolls is lovely too:  With every doll purchased, a doll is given to an orphan in need.

What I didn't know in that moment on Facebook is that these were Sahar's dolls. As the founder of Dumyé Dolls, Sahar's story will inspire you, particularly all the mothers out there. This is her passion, her dream and, now, her reality.

I hope that you will take part in this fabulous endeavor by designing a doll for yourself, your daughter or as a gift for a special girl in your life. And don't forget the purpose pocket, where you can tuck away a secret message for that special someone.

Dang Coconut Chips

Coconut is one of my favorite things in the world, so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered Dang Coconut Chips at Whole Foods yesterday. The story from the founder goes like this:

Dang is named after my mother, who grew up eating food from some of the best chefs in the world: Bangkok’s street vendors. One day, she passed on her recipe for Thai Lettuce Wraps just like she used to have as a college student. I found myself involuntarily snacking on one of the ingredients - Toasted Coconut. It had a strong, sweet aroma and a very satisfying crunch. I immediately called my family, who have been importing goods to the US for more than 30 years, and with that, our company was born.

And I'm so glad it was. These things are amazing. I ate them straight out of the bag, but I can imagine they'd be great mixed with cereal, yogurt or even in a salad. Get them on Amazon.
