Brahms Mount Cotton Throw


I just love these Cotton Herringbone Throws from Brahms Mount. They are a beautifully classic staple for your home…and so cozy!

According to their website, Brahms Mount weaves textiles with a signature American look and soft, luxurious hand. Classically beautiful, wonderfully comfortable and grounded in the authentic character and centuries-old textile tradition of Maine, their products have been capturing hearts since the company was founded in 1983.

Their blankets, throws and linen towels are woven on antique shuttle looms by local artisans in their mill in Monmouth, Maine. To achieve such vibrant colors, they use specially engineered yarns spun from the finest natural fibers and colorfast, eco-friendly dyes. The pieces come off the loom feeling clean and untreated, rich and resilient.

Brahms Mount carries on Maine’s textile tradition and they are proud to use machines and methods that have stood the test of time – and still produce the best quality available. But most of all, they’re proud to play a role in keeping American manufacturing alive and well. This information was all found on the Brahms Mount website. I have no affiliation with the company and have received nothing from them in exchange for this post. I just really, really like the blankets and think they would make an excellent present for a loved one during the holiday season.

A Trip to Target

Today was a TARGET day! I have had a growing list of things to buy because I a) needed them, b) desperately wanted to try them, or c) stumbled upon them at the store and therefore bought them.


Up & Up (Target Brand) Makeup Removing Towelettes. I’ve heard great things about these cleansing cloths from one of my favorite bloggers, Organized Jen. So of course, I just had to try them out for myself.


Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. This cream smells AMAZING but even better, it works! I’ve been using it before bed for the past few nights and have become completely obsessed. Applying it at night is as routine as putting on my lip balm.


Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Smooth. Never used this shave gel but it sounds really good, it’s gotten awards from Allure and it claims to help you shave less and contains soy so it sounds pretty perfect. Plus I really like the Aveeno line of products. They seem to be a good fit for my skin and are very natural and appropriate for sensitive skin. (I adore their Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream and have gone through plenty of bottles of this cream…and my skin thanks me).


Schick Quattro Razor. Another new item for me. I’ve never used the Schick razors before because I have been a BIC Soleil devotee for years and years so I’m excited to try out a new razor. (It’s the little things that matter, right?)


EOS Lip Balm. This lip balm (in pretty much any flavor) is tied with Burt’s Bees for my favorite lip balm of all time. I like the shape and it’s always easy to spot in my purse, plus there was a sale on 4-packs at Target. Couldn’t resist!

So that sums up my trip to Target. I will check back in with my verdict on these products. I also recently placed an order for a few Origins skin care products and I’m waiting for them to arrive. A post to come!  Also, I’m hoping to get to The Container Store this weekend. We will have to wait and see if it comes to fruition. In the meantime, I’m building my list of “Must Buy Items” so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I’m still a newbie at The Container Store.

Oh! I almost forgot my absolute favorite purchase from today’s trip. My Circo Love ‘n Nature Owl Pillow! She’s sitting on my desk chair as I type this brightening up my office. I think a Daily Moxie office mascot has finally arrived. :)





Shopping in Marblehead

Stopped into a cute little store in Marblehead today during my daily walk and what a delight! The store, Bancroft & Friends, is packed with wonderful pieces (pillows, purses, dishware) all with a nice calming blue, green and purple palette. Her pieces are all handmade and would make amazing wedding gifts. If you aren’t into the nautical theme, she has some beautiful floral pieces as well. I loved the hydrangea platter (above) but was also sort of smitten by the nautical/sea pieces (below). You can also find pieces in her Etsy store.
