If you want your little tike to look totally rockin’ on the first day back to school, you absolutely MUST have these new Kanken Bags. Fresh, new, and hip- these backpacks will make your little one stand out amongst the crowd. For the mini series we have 4 colors- blue, forest green, red, and putty. These came in and I was immediately in looooooove. Good thing they make them for adults too!! They are slim enough to look feminine on a woman but utilitarian enough to remain masculine. They could make a perfect gifts for teens off to college or that person who is always on the go. Totally one of the most versatile bags I have seen in a LONG time. I mean, you can use it as a hand bag OR a backpack, all the while carrying your computer in the computer sleeve and water bottle in the bottle pocket. On top of all that, the European aesthetic really gives these bags the X-factor. What’s not to be obsessed with??? Kanken Classic Backpack- $75, Kanken Mini Backpack- $55.

After doing some very intense blog reading and pinning, I came across some sleek looking organic body washes! BUT, to make the pot sweeter, I found out that the vendor was a socially and environmentally conscious company and was located right nearby! At Annie’s we love supporting local small businesses so I did some chatting and got all 4 of the body washes in the store! They smell so so yummy, and who could resist the sleek packaging? I’m obsessed! They even have a non-scented baby wash! All of these are sure to help you do just what the name says- Get Happy, Wake up, or Calm Down. Organic Body Washes- $15
Eek! Walked in the store this morning and saw THESE new lovely USA Posters – just in time for the Olympics and just in time for my own personal gushing. The finish on the poster is like on a photograph and the colors totally jump out at you. I can see this in just about any room too, since it adds that perfect *pop* of color! These posters come cutely packaged in a tube with tissue paper which makes them easy to tote home or wrap up and give as a gift. I can’t wait to get my own and hang it up in my room at school this fall! With all the maps we have here at the store, this one is definitely my favorite! USA posters- $65.
Whenever the fourth of July rolls around, I always feel my spirits lift. I can’t help but think about all the yummy food, friends and family around, parades, and of course fireworks!! There is something about the heat and the happiness that makes this holiday my favorite (and Ann’s). That being said, we really got into the spirit and just launched our Red, White and Blue collection on the web! It is jam packed full of everything you could possibly need for the perfect 4th of July party, summer/July read, or patriotic household decorations. My favorite item in the collection is probably the Lobster Letterpress Coasters. They are so funky, fun, and oh-so preppy! Also in the collection is a Sequin Patriotic Newsboy Cap. They are absolutely hilarious and I seem to chuckle every time I walk by them. They would make for great parade attire or gifts for your guests! Either way, they are sure to evoke a smile Happy browsing! Lobster Letterpress Coasters - $14, Sequin Patriotic Newsboy Cap- $5, Red, White and Blue.

Insights from one of our Interns–
Welp, my first day is over and as much as I would say it went seamlessly… there was that one little blip in getting to work. I woke up super early- maybe because I was excited but also maybe because my mattress feels like a glorified cement floor- and got to walking. I made sure to give myself at least 10 minutes cushion time. You know, “just in case”. Sure enough, I got lost. Being enticed by all the beautiful sights and sounds, an Ohio girl like me easily just missed my turn.(There was a deli on the corner I was obviously staring at- eating is sort of a sport for me). I managed to make a two-turn, 30-min trip into an hour long expedition all the way down Henry street… I was about 15 min out of my way when I realized that maybe I wasn’t in the right location. So after having a mild panic attack I decided to turn around and call the store over and over and over again. I eventually made it, but only after sweating through my shirt and rubbing ginormous blisters on my feet. Thank God, Jess, the store manager
was running a little bit late as well and was completely cool about it. The rest of the day was filled with learning the ropes and searching for cool new products – fantastic! The store has been so amazing and so welcoming- I’m really excited to start learning more!
Ta-Ta for now!
