Lost Socks

It's a shame about all those lost socks, isn't it? 🧦 On the bright side, mismatched socks make great cleaning mitts, dry board erasers, golf club protectors, shoe covers, DIY potpouri holders and a lot more! ♻️ Why buy when you can repurpose and reuse? And why buy plastic bottled laundry detergent when you can use eco-friendly strips? 🌿 🌏👍 #sustainability #sustainabilitytips #sustainabilitymatters #ecofriendly #zerowaste #sustainableliving #recycle #reuse #upcycling #plasticfree

Product Descriptions

Blush and Bar
Simple Dots White Fire Opal Ring

We like to call this "the little ring that could." So light ...you might forget you're wearing it...its powerful opalescence will...burn holes through your enemies...

Blush and Bar
Droplet Ring 925 Sterling SIlver/14K Gold Vermeil

Honestly, we could stare at this ring forever: A simple-yet-dazzling circle of shiny, hammered gold or silver punctuated by mesmerizingly sparkly stones. It's elegant and then some. Hey, remember when you used to wear junk jewelry? Yeah, we can barely remember that time either.

Blush and Bar
White Opal Local Mix Ring

An opal is a party on your finger. It's the most colorful gemstone of all and, arguably, the most dazzling. Certainly it's the most mesmerizing. Try staring at an opal on a bad day-definitely transports you to another world. Opals have been tied to both good luck and bad (we figure that cancels each other out).

Blush and Bar
Sasha Sparkle Dainty Cluster 18K Gold Vermeil Ring

Who couldn't use a sparkling-but-subtle splash of diamondy beauty in their life-and on their finger? Test it out: Head to your local café, hoist up your mug with this ring on and watch the world hang on your every, bling-accented word.

How to Compost at Home: It's Easier Than You Think

Compositing your family's food scraps is a great way to reduce the amount of organic trash your household contributes to landfills and lessen greenhouse emissions. Not only is composting great for sustainability, it has health, social and economic benefits. There are tons of good reasons to compost.

10 Top Reasons To Start Eating Local

There is no official or legal definition (although maybe there should be, for labeling purposes): 25, 50 or 100 miles could all be considered "local." But most simply, it means food that is produced within a short distance of where it is consumed.

Hollywood Hygge: Celebs Heed the Call of the Tame

Here at MinxNY, Hygge isn't some celebrity fad or chic trend. Nope, Hygge (hoo-gah, the Danish concept of celebrating fun times, comfortable and comforting accessories, and seizing the moment) is our whole brand. We practice what we preach each day in the office. (Thank you, ultra-casual dress code, ping pong, and early summer Fridays!)

15 Ways to Make Your Socks Last Much (Like Really Way) Longer

It's time for a little a tough love on a soft subject: You've probably been abusing your socks. Not intentionally, of course, but still. Socks aren't cheap, high quality ones, especially. (Even with an employee discount, ahem.) And yet socks have it rougher than almost any other item in our wardrobe, partly because we walk on them all day long (ya think?).

The Dirt: Germs in the News . . . *Click* – You're Sick!

SO, folks, guess what's naturally filthy if left to its own devices? Your devices! Which? Co. UK investigated the bugs on tech items and found, well, are you sitting down? 30 tablets, 30 phones and 30 keyboards were swabbed and many boards and tablets were dirtier that an office toilet seat!

COVID-19 Special Issue: On cautions, cross-reactions & cures

COVID-19 has changed our world, reminding us of how little we control and how much we still need to discover.

Search parity, blood-brain barrier relief and bind faith

Search is fundamental. Imagine you couldn't google anything you were curious about from your phone as you're eating lunch? Well, if you are over 30 years old, you don't have to imagine it. You lived it. Talk about the dark ages. Well, it's still before dawn in the cheminformatics world.

Hey, Fam! We’re still here! Hope you are all good. 🤗 We know we’ve been quieter than normal as, while continuing our weekly NY Common Pantry runs, we’ve taken a l'il pause to reflect on our purpose and place going forward. We’ve been having some meetings (all are welcome). And some readings (we have a book club, you are also welcome). And we’ve been doing a lot of thinking. We are in the process of drafting a new mission statement. We’re also having our first big, live, community “Meet...
