    Spoil Mom With Heathmade’s Lotion Bar!

    In five years, the young entrepreneur Heath Wilson, his apothecary interests transformed into something much bigger — a mission to craft cleansing and soothing skincare products out of simple and plant-based ingredients. Not to mention, they’re so sleekly packaged and effectively formulated that you wouldn’t think they came from a kid-owned brand.

    Lotion Bar is an innovative twist on a liquid formula that feels luxurious as ever when applied to skin. It’s the perfect gift to send mom this Mother‘s Day!

    A special note from Heath, the founder: Heathmade is donating April product proceeds to No Kid Hungry.

    “While I have been fortunate to keep busy during this uncertain time, I recognize many businesses and schools are suffering. After talking it over with my family, I decided to make a donation to No Kid Hungry, a non-profit organization that ensures kids who count on the meals they receive at school, continue to get the food they need to be healthy.”

    The Curiously Crafted Gifts for Mother’s Day, from Heathmade Los Angeles. 

    Mom no longer has to worry about moisturizers and hand creams leaking in her purse, or squeezing too much or too little out of bottles or tubes. Have her try the stick formula that glides right on and easily rubs in. Nourish and soothe dry skin with a combination of argan oil, avocado butter, candelilla wax or white beeswax, and essential oils.

    Choose from signature scents:

    • Aware – A bright blend of citrusy lemongrass and cool spearmint.
    • Awaken – Fresh coffee is combined with sweet orange, and creamy vanilla.
    • Devote – Relaxing, bright and clean scents of lavender, citrus, juniper and rosemary.
    • Be True – The woodsy scent of sandalwood and the soft, warmth of vanilla.
    • Relax – Escape the day with the rich, floral aroma of ylang-ylang and the spicy and exotic combination of ginger and orange.

    About Heathmade Los Angeles:

    Heath Wilson’s entrepreneurial journey began at four years old as he attended a week-long potions lab to learn about the healing power of plants, herbs and aromatics. His first sales began at a school fair as he sold hand-crafted, alcohol-free hand sanitizer. He quickly acquired apothecary-like skills crafting products with ingredients such as essential oils, plant butters and other natural ingredients. Heath traded the fair booth for a business venture founding Heathmade. Today the brand carries an array of natural, cruelty-free products including lotion bars, lip balms, deodorant, a healing balm for the face and body, and Heath’s signature hand sanitizers. For more information, visit https://heathmadela.com/.

    Time to Think About Mother’s Day Gift – PaulyJen Belt Bag is The Clutch Re-imagined

    I know everyone is very upset to be quarantined for over a month already. But I think it is the time to rethink what we really care in our life when we can’t go to bars, we can’t go shopping, as well as no traveling. I would say it is family – what we need cherish the most. Wishing your family healthy, happy and to be loved. As this year’s Mother’s Day is coming, it is never too early to think about a lovely gift idea for the person who gives you life, raised you up and always there for you.

    Let me introduce you a great Mother’s Day gift – a stylish and effortless belt bag. PaulyJen™ “The Clutch Re-Imagined” latest luxury fashion trend, it’s like no other brand out there, it is chic, timeless and functional. It’s the modern day fanny pack that can be worn multiple ways! One of the favorite features about the belt bag is the functionality of the snaps on the back of the bag that allows for versatility and convenience.

    Wear your PaulyJen belt bag on your hip, as a cross body, with your own belt or toss it in your tote or use it as a clutch.

    • To wear it as a crossbody: Just pull the strap and lengthen it all way.
    • To wear it around your waist: Shorten the strap to your liking and then pinch the end to fit into the leather keeper to hold down the extra fabric or leather.
    • To use as a clutch: Easy, just pull out the belt, not necessary to unsnap (prolong the life of the snaps.)
    • To wear it with your own belt: The snaps are there for you to use primarily as a functional feature to use so you don’t have to take off your belt.

    Make sure the bag is snapped when in use, if not and you bend over, your items may fall out.


    One of the most beautiful things about leather is that it’s unique. No two hides are alike. It’s a natural product with each having its own characteristics. Leathers will have some minor imperfections which adds beauty to your PaulyJen purchase.
