So I'm not just saying this, I truly enjoy giving gifts more than receiving them. Watching a friend or family member's face light up when they open a present from me makes my heart do a little dance! I love the process of finding the right something for someone - especially something I think they would like but perhaps not buy for themselves.
And the card! OMG, finding the right card is the best part! I like my cards to be beautiful, a little silly, and personal. I feel like people can tell when you just grab the closest card to the register with barely a second thought. It's the thought behind it all that makes giving the magical act that it is.
These days, I'm incredibly appreciative of the people in my life who I love and who love me, and I relish in the act of letting them know that with tokens of affection and words of appreciation. And not just on special occasions; sometimes on just a random day! So it's no surprise that working at a shop like Lula feeds my soul and inspires my giving like nothing ever has before.
If you haven't done it in awhile, do yourself a favor and give a little something special to someone special. The more love you give, the more you're bound to receive!

Hey Monday, we have a message for you! ;-)
After last week's Magic Crystal Workshop, I have a newfound appreciation for these natural beauties! I set an intention for finding romanic love and found the perfect mixture of crystals to help realize my goal:
Rose Quartz - for love (including the ever important self-love)
Carnelian - for passion, sexuality, and confidence
Ruby Fuchsite - for opening the heart to love
Ruby in Chalcedony - for assisting in finding new love
Chrysocolla - for overcoming fear of social situations including first dates!
Black Tourmaline - for warding off the assholes (just in case!)
Stop into Lula to create your own goody bag of crystals and see the magic unfold!
Hello, lovely Lula ladies (and gents)! Here on Shop Talk, we'll be featuring a product each week that we're especially in love with!
This week our product spotlight shines on these adorable reusable wine bags from Mixt Studio. After gifting a bottle of wine to a friend in one of these bags, your friend then has the opportunity to pass it on when gifting wine to another friend, and so on. Each giver marks their name, the name of the recipient, the event, and the date on the long tag as they continue to share the bag. It's perfect for toting around your rosé during those upcoming summer nights at the Hollywood Bowl. Stop by Lula to see them yourself!
Lula Mae now hosts pop up shops on Saturdays! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to submit your goods. We do not charge vendors for space as we believe in helping you promote what you do in a brick and mortar setting. Hooray for independent artists!
Also, don't forget to come in and shop during the pop ups! We announce them on our insta, so make sure you're following us there. (lula.mae)

Fun times here at Lula, come on in and see for yourself!!!!
Your black and whiteaholic blogger,
These are so hilarious. And of course I have funny Halloween costume ideas for each mask.... Not only could you be a masked robber or possibly a character from the Purge with any of these, but there are many more options as well!!!!
Sheep Mask: get a brown body suit. Line your neck with cotton balls or fake fur. Wear a pair of uggs, and BAM you are a UGG BOOT.
Lion Mask: Jeans, Rasta T Shirt, gold chains, and mask... BAM you are Snoop Lion.
Bunny Mask: Obviously a sexy play boy bunny with this mask would be hilarious. Or a zombie Easter bunny.
Puppy Mask: HOT DOG- I'd wear a body suit or sweat suit and paint flames all over it. (Snoop Dog costume will also work)
Pig Mask: pig in a blanket...literally.. Just wear a blanket.
Bear Mask- Smokey the Bear, chain smoking? Lol
Or buy one of these for your kid and just let them be the adorable animal!!
Hope some of of these made you laugh ;)
Your Halloween freak blogger,
Time to rep your California pride! West Coast best coast!!!!
We got lots and lots of cute Cali themed pillows in today that add perfectly to our collection of fun California products! I'm absolutely in love with the California Republic canvas water bottles! They come in two perfect sizes and fit perfectly in a purse, backpack or your hand on a hike when you're trying to beat this Cali heat. Another favorite of mine in the whole store ( everything is my favorite, who are we kidding) is the campfire themed Cali mug!!! It's perfect for your morning coffee, or in my case, tea!!!!
I also spy in the background, our new baby sunglasses! They are seriously so adorable! They will help to keep your baby shaded from this NEVER ENDING HEAT.
Sincerely your California native shop girl,
We have gifts of all sort here at Lula Mae, and all the perfect "just because" presents. These little humping bunny salt and pepper shakers are sure to get your hunny or a friend laughing their little butts off!!!! Each one of our Sweet Heart tins are filled with our special little treats! And what's better than treats?? Literally nothing!!! We also have the perfect pillows to give anyone special in your life! Or to give yourself;)
Spread a little love this week <3
Here at Lula we have been getting ready for our fun filled Begining Sewing class. if you have never used a machine, or are new to using one then this is the class for you! We are sold out for this school season, but there will be more classes available after the holidays!!! In this class you get to learn all the basics of sewing, including how to make your very own tote bag. With the skills you learn in this class you should be able to make whatever your little heart desires, maybe even your own clothes!!!!
Peace & Love,
