Etsy And The Success Of Bohemian Styles


Photo: Pinterest

I think I can most definitely say that Etsy, the online site for the sale of handmade items and other products has played a major role in the success of the Bohemian Style. The Bohemian Style has over 200 years been a big choice when it comes to styles of fashion for any given period. Generally, associated with artists, writers, and intellectuals, bohemian culture incorporates various ethic clothing styles, as well as historical costume (Delores Monet, 2016).

Bohemian style is loose fitting colorful clothing also known by the names boho chic, hippie style, or Aesthetic dress. Bohemians, with their long locks of hair and pure essential fibers, stand out in a crowd representing a counterculture whose very existence has been connected to creativity, poverty, and differential connections to social structures and traditions (Delores Monet, 2016).

Back to Etsy And The Bohemian Style

I mentioned in the beginning of this article that Etsy is believed to be one of the reasons for the acceptance and success of the Bohemian style in this era. I myself was not fond of the long, colorful, loose fitting clothing years ago until I stumbled upon Etsy, the website that has millions of online sellers who sell bohemian clothing, jewelry, and accessories. The most popular occasion that is mostly advertised on social media sites such as Twitter is Etsy bohemian wedding. Let’s take a look at some of the items from bohemian weddings.

Bohemian wedding dresses are usually handmade out of the finest materials such as: chiffon, satin, and lace. On Etsy, you can have the dress made to order, customized just for you.

These are usually made to order on Etsy. The customization for this item is open. Perfect for beach weddings.

To conclude, the bohemian style will live on for generations to come. This is an accepted fashion style that is neither boring or gets old with those who wear it. Think about the history of the bohemian style next time you wear something from this elegant fresh style of dress. Only those who respect the history can really appreciate the nature of its fibers.

Vintage Me


There’s something classic about me…

No vintage,

Roaming freely within me is a vintage way of thinking and living,

Old world values, beliefs, and perceptions,

You cannot put a price tag on me,
I’m priceless

Childhood Tall Tales: Image


I’m 12,
Mature and impressionable,
I’m not like most children my age,
I see the world with adult eyes.
You ask,
“What do I mean by that?”
I’ve been teased in school. Spirit broken down on a daily basis by those who have a fear of what I represent,
They see confidence, a little girl who is forced to mature on the adult level in order to deal with the brutality of self-image destruction by others,
Be it by little girl or boy,
Be it adult,
I have to deal.

What did you expect to read from these pages?
A fictional story about my life?
No. This is non-fiction which I am all about at the rightful age of 12.
I’m not caught up in fairy tales, monster dreams, or anything to do with playtime,
Because I’ve been robbed of my innocence all because I’m a beautiful flower that people choose to refer to as ugly.
From my big nose,
To my full lips,
To my nappy hair,
I’m a 12 year old caught up in image against my own free will.

Who do I blame for this?
The adults,
From magazines depicting skinny beautiful models with beautiful hair, beautiful lips, perfect noses,
To the exercise gurus who say the average waistline should be “28 inches”,
To the adults that say I will be nothing in my tomorrow because I don’t want to be what they think I should be,

I’m 12,
And I’ve been humiliated,
My pain runs deep,
Deeper than the bottom of the ocean,
I just want to scream!
How can people be so cruel?

I don’t want to blame parents for their child beating my spirit down at the end of every class hour.
With some horrific words that eat away slowly at my soul,
Because, be it child or adult,
You still have a choice in the matter.

Why are my looks so important to everyone else, except me?
See what you’ve done adults?
You’ve confused me with your media race,
From your self-absorbed ads about happiness coming if I get involved in your campaign,
When I’m living as an adult at 12 in sadness,

But I have a grown up mind,
I don’t blame God for this,
Not at all,
Human beings have choices and the free will to do the right thing,
For instance,
In this case,
Stop telling tall tales,

I say,
I know you thought this would be a child’s storybook,
Filled with characters that you can imagine being,
But instead,
You get me.

I don’t know if it makes you happy or not,
To be in the midst with a 12 year old who is totally against the growing campaign that is going on,
What society believes to be true,
You get a 12 year old who chooses to end her thoughts about the negative thoughts and actions of self-made individuals who poisoned half the world’s minds with their narrow-minded opinions.

My testimony stops here.

I’m 37,
A strong woman,
A bipolar survivor,
A mother,
A college graduate,
An author before business owner,
An independent thinking woman who has now set her own standards for what her image should depict to others,
A kindred spirit, fearless,
Encouraging others who have gone through the same,
Don’t ever be afraid to grow up against the odds,
Your spirit is always worthy of fighting for.

Evening Quote: Surrender


To surrender means to give up the past, the in the meantime actions and behaviors, and our negative way of thinking for something new and unfamiliar that may very well challenge us physically, mentally, and emotionally. Negative way of thinking?

For instance,
if you find yourself constantly thinking about failure when you attempt to set out to do anything, such as thinking something may go wrong constantly, then you have a negative way of thinking.

You may have looked failure right in the eye and made the decision to surrender to it, but a transformation can only happen if you are willing to let go. It’s all about a let-go process. Giving up is hard. And doing something new
And developing a new way of thinking that may make you feel less confident because you’re not quite used to the idea just yet about persevering and moving forward is quite normal.

If you believe,
If you have a vision,
If you have a dream, you can make things happen by surrendering and showing acceptance for where you are in the here and now so that you can develop short term and long term goals that are tangible in order to get results that will improve your life. However, a true transformation can only happen if you surrender spiritually as well. This is where changing for the better becomes a reality, your transformation.

Please leave a comment on today’s topic if you like. Thank you.

Coffee House Chronicles: The 3 Senses


No one can truly live in this world without the 3 senses that makes all the difference on where you end up in life. The 3 senses are:

street smarts- to survive in communities and with daily trials that make it difficult to live in this world at times.

common sense- having the natural ability to put things together. Diving deep into unfamiliar territories.

book sense- needed in order to be the best you can be in this life. Where goals are achieved; balance of life events and growth follows.

The 3 senses are not superficial. They are actual. Believe me…I know. However, you can’t become a master craftsman of all of them if you don’t openly use all 3 senses. No one is greater than the other.

The Naked Bee: All Natural Products Made Easy


Omg! I am getting ready for the Christmas selling season on eBay. I’ve been searching high and low for all natural products to offer my customers to continue with the likes of Bath And Body Works, creating a customer aromatherapy experience for my customers. Kathryn’s Scented Gifts will be selling a not to well known product, called, “The Naked Bee.” The company called, The Naked Bee is set up with reps, member accounts, and so on just like the famous candle company called, Scentsy. However, I stopped by a gift shop today and found this unknown, unfamiliar natural product line and fell in love with their scents. Grapefruit and Orange Blossom Honey are my favorite scents. And these are the scents that I plan on selling. “The Naked Bee” product line includes lotions, soaps, candles, moisturizers, and shampoo/conditioner that are all natural, nothing but the good stuff. And none of the bad stuff as the company advertises.


The company was started by a man named, Michael and a woman, named Cindy, partners that wants their last names to remain private, back in 1991. In the beginning, the duo began manufacturing and wholesaling candles and personal care products. They successfully grew their business from the ground up with an aromatherapy product line for many years ( The Naked Bee).

Later years, they introduced a line of products all developed with unique custom blends that was such a big hit with customers that the 2 decided to build a whole company based on it. Michael was the creator of this original line. Then Cindy, in 2004, created orange blossom honey! She came up with a name for the new product line which was of course, The Naked Bee. From there, a new company was born (The Naked Bee

What Makes It An All Natural Product Line?

“All the good stuff, none of the bad stuff.” What does that mean? Well…

“All of the good stuff”

70% organic skin conditioning lotion and moisturizer for hand and body

Shampoo Conditioner with honey and spirulina

Triple milled oatmeal soap with saponified beeswax and guar gum

Organic olive oil, honey and beeswax lip balm

Clean burning 100% paraffin-free palm wax and beeswax travel candle…

“None of the bad stuff”

No propylene glycol or mineral oil
No dyes or pigment
No lauryl or laureth sulfate
Absolutely NO animal testing…ever (The Naked Bee).


Why Should You Give The Naked Bee A Try?

90% of the time, we tend to use more products that are not good for us in the long run. All natural is simply the way to go. More and more consumers are buying aromatherapy products, just like Bath And Body Works products simply because its good for us. And the scents smell great. From a business standpoint, the line is still unfamiliar to the consumer world. Sales of this product line may not be high at first, but it can be a profitable investment if you market the line well. I’m one business owner in 2016 who plans on selling this natural line to my customers on eBay. Wish me luck, you guys.

There are more companies out here besides Bath And Body Works with an all natural aromatherapy product line. We just need to do our research and give them a try. Where one company may fall short with its business strategy with its customers, another prevails, or both. Bath And Body Works remains number one in the aromatherapy world. However, you should give this natural product line a try today. You never know what a product is like unless you try it. Long story short, all natural is the way to go.
