Best of Honey Kennedy 2016: Oct, Nov, Dec

Aaaannnnd… here is the last of the 2016 Best of Honey Kennedy roundups. I hope you take some time to enjoy lingering over these posts while cozy and enveloped in cheer. Fall down the Honey Kennedy rabbit hole for a good while before we have to get back to the daily grind and the new resistance. You are all in my thoughts and I’ll see you later next week. I’ll be working on my New Year’s intentions and snuggling our sweet dog baby. We’ll have to fight for it, but we will band together to make sure we have a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Love, Jen xx ♥

Best of Honey Kennedy 2016: Jan, Feb, March

Hello! I hope you were able to have a relaxing holiday weekend and that this week provides some rest! I’m looking back at 2016 over the next few days before the new year, and I’ve rounded up some of the most popular Honey Kennedy blog posts! It’s good to look back and revisit these posts because I am reminded of how many talented, clever, and lovely people I’ve been able to discover, get to know and try to help shine a light on. Get comfy and sit back so you can enjoy discovering or rediscovering some truly inspiring people, nice moments, and perspectives. Thank you so much for being here with me this year, years past, and in 2017. The new year is looking to be quite difficult, but I’m glad we get to spend it together and lift each other up at every turn. HAPPY NEW YEAR! xo Jen ♥

Gift Guide: (Mostly) Portland Faves

Hi there! Honey Kennedy contributor Allison here! Jen asked me to put together some of my favorite Portland gift picks, so here are some things I’m loving lately from our talented Portland makers and a few other things I’m just really into right now. HAPPY SOLSTICE!

BARROW PDX
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-01

Good friends and fine artists Lindsay Kretchun and Rachel Warkentin founded Barrow PDX in 2013 and have been designing and producing beautiful and unique porcelain and fiber jewelry by hand since. With styles ranging from delicate to statement making, you’re guaranteed to find something perfect for that special person on your list who seems to have everything, except perhaps a gorgeous pair of black porcelain stud earrings with gold leaf accent. Shop online or in person at their many local Portland stockists.

Bonus: Barrow will be donating 20% of all their holiday show profits to Boys and Girls Club of America, check @barrowpdx on Instagram for upcoming holiday show announcements.

LITTLE GARAGE SHOP
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-02

One of my favorite up-and-coming housewares lines is Portland’s Little Garage Shop. The range includes hand-printed textiles made into napkins, cushions and dog beds, hand-thrown ceramics with gorgeous glazes, room sprays, candles, and prints – all which make for special, one-of-a-kind gifts. On rare occasions, owners Noel and Thomas open up shop in their NE Portland garage (hence their name) but more often you can catch them at Portland Flea. Shop online and follow @littlegarage_shop on Instagram to see fun updates.

DEA DIA
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-03

Jewelry designer and maker Jessica Lawson recently opened a brick and mortar for her Dea Dia jewelry line as well as apparel, home goods, body care, stationary, and lots more from some of her favorite indie designers. So far, it’s been one of my favorite new shops to hit the scene this year and I suggest making a visit to her beautiful storefront at 4523 N Albina or shop online for great gifts including Black Dash mugs from Zola, Dea Dia’s Realm of Chaos and Night earrings or a cactus incense holder that doubles as a ring holder.

TAROT OF COCKTAILS
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-04

Tarot has been all the rage of late and I love designer Katy Siebel’s extra chic mixologist-themed Tarot of Cocktails deck. The perfect gift for those who like to consult the cards and imbibe alike, Katy’s deck pairs gorgeous tarot-inspired illustrations with creative drink recipes like the ‘Root of All’ which combines tequila, root beer, cynar and bitters for a one-of-a-kind drink that will tickle any budding mixologist’s fancy. You can shop online and follow @tarotofcocktails on Instagram! (Editor’s Note: You can also find Tarot of Cocktails at Portland’s Tender Loving Empire shops!).

WILDCARE
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-05

Wildcare is a small-batch apothecary based in California expertly mixing hydrosols, clay masks, heavenly face oils and a gorgeous golden mica infused body oil. Founder Cortney Herrera knows her stuff and mixes magical potions that my skin regularly thanks me for. Pass on the beauty to that special someone in need of some self-care this holiday season. You can shop online or, in Portland, find Wildcare at Menagerie and Stand Up Comedy.

Follow @shop_wildcare on Instagram to see when Cortney periodically announces sales with portions of their proceeds going to causes like the Protectors of Standing Rock.

THE SALT EMPIRE
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-06

Portland based jewelry line The Salt Empire is a good source for minimalist pieces, but the item I’m really enamored with right now is their Safe Space Safety Pin ring. Offering large and small size options in brass, gold fill, and silver — I love how their affordable designs are. Shop Safe Space rings here and all other Salt Empire jewelry here.

Bonus: The Salt Empire is donating 50% of proceeds from all Safe Space rings sold to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU so there’s no reason not to stuff one in everyone’s stocking this season!

COCANÚ
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-07

Handmade in Portland, Cocanú Chocolates uses some of the highest quality chocolate as well as some pretty inventive flavors. My favorite is their Moonwalk bar which features dark chocolate with cocoa nibs and pop rocks. Admittedly, I was terrified of pop rocks as a child, but Cocanú uses them sparingly to achieve a sparkling effect that makes this amazing bar, well, POP. Other flavors include Holy Wood (editor’s note: this is my fave!) which uses palo santo wood to subtly flavor dark chocolate, the Picasso bar which features cayenne, ginger, pimentón and coconut for a spicy dark chocolate treat, and Othello which mixes white chocolate with cacao nibs and chocolate. Perfect for stocking stuffers and hostess gifts, chocolate lovers will also appreciate an assortment. Buy Cocanú chocolates online or at Portland stockist Milk Milk Lemonade at 1407 SE Belmont.

VITRUVI
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-08

Essential oils have spiked in popularity in the last few years and whether or not you by into all the hype, it’s hard to argue with the calming beautiful scents created by diffusing oils. My favorite way to do just that is with Vitruvi’s porcelain diffuser. Made in Japan, this diffuser is truly an object of beauty and quality that surpasses the mostly plastic diffusers available elsewhere. Make your loved one’s days so much nicer with a white or black porcelain diffuser and a few oils to get them started. Plus, for US shoppers, once the Canadian to US dollar conversion kicks in — it’s a quite a bit less expensive. Some of my favorite oils are Peppermint, Lavender, Geranium, and Spruce. They are all lovely. (Editor’s Note: I dash a few drops of these aromatherapy treatments when I’m super stressed, but most often, I make a combo of Tangerine, Peppermint, and Frankincense that I LOOOOOVE. Local friends — you can also pick up oils locally at Clary Sage Herbarium 2841 NE Alberta St.!)

The Vitruvi diffusers and oils sell out are then are restocked regularly, so if they are out — just keep checking back.

AGE OF EARTH COLLECTIVE
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-09

Speaking of aromatherapy, if Vitruvi’s diffuser is more than you can spend, but you want to delight someone with some amazing smells, definitely consider Portland’s own Age of Earth Collective. Owner Roxanne Caparelli expertly blends essential oils by hand to create some heavenly scents in the form of perfume oils, incense cones and room sprays. I never considered myself an “incense person” until I tried Age of Earth’s Thoreau and Ignatius blends, but now I’m hooked and can’t wait to spread the love! You can shop Age of Earth Collective online or at various Portland stockists.

FRANKIE & COCO
honey-kennedy-gift-guide-mostly-portland-pdx-gifts-10

Lady run biz, Frankie & Coco has been providing Portlanders with stylish, handmade handbags and pouches since 2013. With a variety of sizes, styles and prints to choose from, it’s not hard to find a fun gift for just about anyone on your list. Frankie & Coco’s polished denim and black Pendleton wool clutch is a nice gift for a fave lady and everyone can get their toiletries organized for their next getaway with a sophisticated neutral grey canvas toiletry bag. For a super great gift, stuff a Frankie & Coco pouch with treats like Cocanú chocolates, Age of Earth Co. incense, Barrow Pdx studs, and some Vitruvi oils! You can shop Frankie & Coco online or in person at one of their many Portland stockists.

Bonus: Frankie & Coco is a WOC owned business and they are donating 10% of all online sales to the ACLU!
