    Time to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by support Hispanic and Latin WOMEN Owned Small Business

    It’s a special time of the year, Hispanic Heritage Month is here! It’s September 15th to October 15th! Hispanic Americans’ accomplishments and contributions are recognized and honored. Let’s a step further by celebrating Hispanic and Latin WOMEN who are small business owners working hard to make a name for themselves and their brands!

    Latino craftsmanship is at the heart of each slipper Pantuss creates – their relationships with the factory, and their attention to detail are rooted in their Argentine heritage.

    The founders wanted to create a brand that reflects a slower pace and process: where things are made with love and care, and where the customer’s comfort is the top priority. They adore details, and the emotions created by these elements, because a powerful product inspires positive transformations in everyone, everywhere.

    Founded in 2012 by three partners Fernanda, Laura and Yamil. Pantuss creates handmade slippers with thoughtful designs focused on comfort and coziness so you can have the most relaxing experience possible.

    Their values of quality, craftsmanship, and deep respect for nature, animals, and people drive everything they do. From the design process to the finished product, each pair of slippers is made so that you love what you wear every day.

    They care about the environment and believe they must do our part to protect the natural world. From their products to the packaging in which they are shipped, the team strives to use all-natural and renewable materials. they also made a commitment to donate a portion of every sale to help plant trees through One Tree Planted. By taking these steps Pantuss hope to reduce the carbon footprint and build a better world.

    Pantuss aromatherapy slippers will help keep you cool and fresh in the heat of spring and summer, and warm and relaxed during the cold winter months. These heated house shoes for women are the ultimate feet warmers for women, and make the perfect back to school gifts for incoming freshman. The removable insoles can also be popped in the fridge for a cooling sensation.

    Pantuss’ woman slippers are hand-made with love, and each pair goes through a rigorous quality control process. The plush summer slippers for women feature removable insoles filled with lavender flowers and flax seeds for a comforting aroma that also promotes relaxation. The flaxseed oil in flax allows the womens house slippers to retain heat, while lavender flowers are full of natural essential oils for aromatherapy. Just pop the insoles in the microwave for 30 seconds, and enjoy the warmth and aromas.

    Each slipper comes with removable insoles that will transport you to a new level of comfort. Pantuss Ballerina ladies slippers stand as the warmest and most relaxing house shoes. The house slippers for women are sustainably made by hand using all-natural products and have a comfortable faux fur exterior for both style and comfort. The removable insoles for women can be placed in the refrigerator, so they can help cool your feet during the hot Summer months. These cute slippers for women make the perfect wonder woman gifts.

    If you’re looking for house slippers for women, microwavable slippers, or bride slippers look no further. Warmies slippers and foot warmers have nothing on Pantuss womens house shoes. Ditch the warming socks, and heat pack, because these comfy fur slippers for women with heated insoles are the only heated socks for women you’ll need! Pantuss offers a wide variety of travel slippers, flip flop slippers, home slippers, and other styles for both men and women.

    What do you get when you replace Vodka with Catan Pisco in your Mule? Yup! A Chilean Mule!

    Change is a good thing. Try swapping out your Vodka for Pisco in your traditional Mule and let this new Chilean Mule take the lead. Salud!

    But first, what is Pisco? Pisco is a spirit distilled 100% from grapes. Only two countries can legally make pisco, and the Denominations of Origin (D.O.) are in Chile and Peru. Catan Pisco is made in Chile, which is where our Founder, Catalina, was born.

    Just like Champagne has to be made in the Champagne region of France, Pisco can only be made in specific regions of Chile and Peru for it to be called PISCO. The D.O is only in these two Countries and we hope to continue to educate the world on this amazing spirit and hope you will join us in the pisco movement.

    Pisco is made from grapes, but do not be mistaken: pisco is not wine, and it certainly doesn’t taste like wine. If you have never experienced pisco, a common comparison is: “if Vodka and Tequila had a baby.” Pisco has the versatility of a vodka, yet the upscale aromas and vast complexity of a premium tequila. This is how some of Catan Fans have described tasting pisco for the first time—but to assure you it is neither tequila or vodka—pisco is unique, and Catan pisco is unmistakable.

    Catan pisco guides you through a sensory ride, first with notes of peaches in honey, berries, tangerine and ripe melon, then balanced by the softness of floral aromas like magnolia, orange blossom and rose water, before a silky-smooth and gentle finish.

    Catan Pisco’s versatile and unique flavor profile is what makes their award winning pisco an excellent spirit to enjoy neat, or simply stirred into any of your favorite cocktails.

    Catan Pisco was awarded GOLD at this years San Francisco World Spirits Competition! Nearly 5,000 spirits brands entered and Catan Pisco is over the moon knowing they are taking home a Gold.

    Before the holiday season is coming, I want to introduce their cocktail recipe from one of Catan Pisco’s favorite local-Latina collaborators, Argelia Martinez, owner of Vida Mia Cocktails. This holiday “Monkey Tail” cocktail kits could not have happened without her help and industry expertise. She is a pro at curating thoughtful cocktail experiences with a focus in supporting the LatinX community.

    If you are not familiar with this delicious Chilean traditional cocktail, the “Cola de Mono,” you won’t want to miss out.

    Inspired by her Chilean roots and heritage, founder Catalina Gaete-Bentz launched Catan Pisco in 2018 introducing the U.S. to its very first American pisco brand and became the first woman-owned pisco company in Chilean history. Get ready to make room on your cocktail bar for a wonderful liquor experience. Stop missing out on the unique spirit and tastes from Catan Pisco. Sometimes called the love child of vodka and tequila, Pisco is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Skip the champagne and crack open a bottle to celebrate life’s moments, big and small. Pisco perfectly blends the versatility of vodka cocktails with the aromas and complexities of upscale tequila.

    In 1974 Women were finally granted the right to apply for their own credit without needing their husbands signatures. Hard to believe this wasn’t that long ago! Celebrating all the Women who had a dream, never gave up and have since turned them into realties. Celebrating all the working moms who never fail in putting their families first and mastering the balance of life. Celebrating all the single ladies who have so much self-love that finding a partner is secondary. There are so many reasons to celebrate for women owned brands, we raise our glasses, filled with Pisco, and toast to YOU.

    At Pop Art Snacks they thrive on inserting FUN into the mundane. Much like Andy Warhol did for the Campbell’s Soup Can in the art world, Pop Art Snacks does for popcorn. They elevate this all-American snack by infusing it with fun-out-of-the-box flavor combinations that appeal to the slightly eccentric foodie and health conscious snack lover.

    Enjoy our Pop Art Gourmet Popcorn that is not only delicious but a healthy snack that will satisfy your foodie urges! Taste the flavor and experience the elevated popcorn from Pop Art Snacks!

    Pop Art was founded by the husband and wife team of Mike & Venessa Dobson. They have always loved food of all types and are constantly inspired by delicious flavors.

    While living in New York City they would visit the many diverse gourmet markets and spice stores and pick out unique spices from all over the world. They started to experiment with popcorn and realized that it was a great canvas to really adhere flavor to. They began to make popcorn for dinner parties and small events and everyone raved about its savory deliciousness.

    Fast forward many years later they have turned their love of food into a gourmet popcorn company that pushes the boundaries of what you can do with popcorn flavors. Both having a background in the art world they fell in love with the philosophy of the Pop Art Movement, which takes something ordinary like a Campbell’s soup can or comic book and elevates it into a work of art. The motivation of Mike & Venessa is to turn everyday Popcorn into a Taste of Art!

    End of Summer Party with Tulip Tie Dye

    As tradition, we conclude summer with our annual tie dye party with Tiny Hikes and Adventures. Throughout summer, crafts and dining experiences, our favorite clothes all get stains. Instead of being relegated to play clothes, we give it new life with Tulip Tie Dye kits. The kit is best shared and we had a blast. One of the moms prepped her black items with bleach to do reverse tie-dye and it looked amazing too! We did this craft at a splash pad and everyone did 2-3 items. Thank you Tulip for our day of fun!

    The moms and kids had a blast. The kit came with everything, dye, gloves and rubber bands. We didn’t use the gloves so everyone had rainbow hands for days 😂
