Cupid Called, Love is Here

New Year, New Month, New Goals Yes, we are a tad late to the party but hey, better late than never. Happy 2021, how are you all doing? It still feels like 2020 but let’s just leave it at that. We are optimistic that this will not be entirely a dumpster fire of a year — it always gets dark before the light, right? We are starting to see the light. It’s the love month. Personally, I have never actually celebrated Valentine’s Day - not sure why really. This year, I think we need a little extra love, don’t you...

'Tis the Season || We Made It

It’s Almost Holiday Time So many of you are gearing up for the Summer Break/Festive Season but so many, due to the pandemic, will be working during this period! We still need to be mindful of the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic so we all need to play our part and be responsible.

With that said, we will close on the 18th of December 2020 and we...

Mare & Itis Shoppe will be participating in Africa's very first virtual reality market. The event has been postponed due to some technicalities but...

Keeping It Together this July || Wellness + Growth

What a year this month has been! At times, it feels as though the days are moving at a snail's pace then boom! It's a new month! It slowly creeps up on you. I had to dig through my vision board and things are looking a little, uhm...let's say, slow. Obviously, with the pandemic, there was a change in focus so looking at my quarterly goals made it seem like I sat back and enjoyed cooking during the lock down, but honestly, I think it's the busiest I have ever been. So much has happened. If you have been following us...

DIY Lip Balm for Mother's Day

DIY Lip Balm for Mother's Day

Hi there,  With everyone scrambling for things to do for special occasions during these uncertain times, I have a freebie for you. I have made it before and have had repeat requests thereafter.  You can substitute the carrier oil (sweet almond oil) with any other oil of your choice (Argan oil, jojoba oil, etc). Same goes for the essential oils. I just love the citrus scents that I love the sweet orange version that I have made before. I am sure you will love making this for your mum or anyone else, really. Winter is coming, no one needs to...
