There are times when life is just a little too serious. Like when both of my girls have collapsed into a puddle of their own tears in the middle of the grocery store. Or when the money we have left for the rest of the month will hardly get us through the rest of the week. Or the classic and recurring I-would-like-to-be-something-in-addition-to-being-a-mom-does-that-make-me-a-bad-person-what-the-heck-am-I-doing-anyway meltdown.
Like I said, too serious.
Luckily, there are things that can vanquish even the meanest reds and bluesiest blues. Just a few of my happy golightly go to's? Dance parties in the kitchen, Haagan-Dazs' Sticky Toffee Pudding ice cream (they haven't made this for years. HAAGAN-DAZS! BRING IT BACK!) and a joy filled accessories company called, Le Trango. They make compact mirrors that make you want to go "MUAH!" with lipsticked lips and tote bags that are perfect for your weekly library visit.
Le Trango and its illustrated cast of characters love to highlight the silly, the whimsical and random. Their mission statement? "No matter how old or busy, we believe in stopping for a moment to blow bubbles. Or stomp leaves. Our mission is to create products that inspire smiles and nostalgia for the child in everyone."
Le Trango’s first character is a frog named Wally. He is nearsighted and occasionally wears bow ties. He enjoys drinking green tea and para-sailing.
A bow tie wearing, near sighted frog that para-sails? I can get behind that.
So, today a little giveaway. One lucky winner will get their choice of one tote and one compact mirror. Me? I don't see how I can live much longer without the Harold the Hedgehog in my life. And Zuzu has her eye on the "Read Books" tote. And I really think I need to get one for every lady in every play group I attend. So yeah. I'll take fifty.
Like I said. Happy making. Know someone that needs a pick me up? Is that someone you? Visit Le Trango and pick up some joy.
