Jams of the Week 3/10/18

Hiya and welcome to jams of the week!
I haven't jammed in a minute because February was rough. Like knock-down, drag-out when will it end. My Grandfather passed away, Luna my hedgehog also passed away, and many other small things added up to one horrible month. I decided that March is going to be all caps !AWESOME! because you can only go up right? right. So, here are three jams that have helped me out getting out of my funk.




This song gives me the good kind of chills

Still - Seinabo Sey


(sidenote: this song was used during Cece &Scmidts wedding)





*****



this whole album is A+

Mura Masa - What If I Go?





*****





Tove is love.

Tove Styrke - Changed My Mind





*****





Kate Nash is back and I am super jazzed.
Made of Bricks was always in my CD player when I was in high school

Kate Nash - Drink About You





alrighty, until next time,
kick March's ass.

Harry Potter Small Business Salute!

It's no secret that Harry Potter comprises a large part of my budget. Way too much of my budget. 
I'll be the first one in the pre-order, the queue, etc for whatever is new and happening.
Since joining the Harry Potter Instagram life I've seen so many awesome makers of non-licensed Harry Potter items that I really wanted to showcase them here. I'm going to try and be better about supporting small makers as much as I support Warner Brothers. Most of these are Etsy but a few have their own sites you can check out.

As a barista, Punache's magically caffeinated combo of HP + Coffee made me freak, they're so cute!
It's not the first time I've seen either slogan, but the milk pitcher is the cutest one I've seen.

Siriusly...






*****





Ten out of ten would use this bag everyday. 
OR
7 Books, 7 days in the week sooo....KruKru get on that ;)





*****





THESE PATCHES THO
ParhelionDesigns' other patches...I've got 4 of them in my cart.
Anyone who loves HP + the Raven Cycle is a friend of mine.
I've never seen a clear patch like this! Perfect for potion bottles!





*****





Where do I begin with Fandom Flair? So many HP pins! She also has Doctor Who, the Office, Parks and Rec...etc. Pins are so hard because they're a cheaper item so you think, oh I'll just buy a few and then it's like...$100...
ANYWAYS
Here are my favorites:










*****




Something about embroidery just makes me wanna jump for joy. It's so time consuming and also impossible for me to do with these crappy hands so my jealously level at anyone skilled enough to do that is so high. 
I would 100% buy these right now if they weren't Russian covers.
So so cute!
CastleofThread if you do them in english, hit me up.



How do you get so much detail in such a small rectangle?!?!






*****




So many of these shops I debate how much stuff to show you. 
If I post them, believe me the rest of the shop is awesome.
Fairycakes for sure...man...just so colorful and fun.



She has a few classes as pins and totes, and I want them all.







*****





Extra bonus for HP goods you can eat. 
Riddles Tea Shoppe sucked me in with the Every Flavor Tea that I ended up buying as Christmas gifts.
She constantly comes up with new bookish and Potterish flavors and cute merch.
Plus, her Instagram makes you want to stay home and read with a mug of tea, which is never a bad thing.




Kowalski's Vanilla Almond? Sign me up.






*****




Alright I'm going to wrap this up with my favorite or I'll go on forever.

BUNCEandBEAN...I want them all. I've actually added them all to my Etsy cart before and debated how much a person needs pins. If they're as awesome as B&B's then A LOT OK!
My favorites are their HP Pin Street Collection:













PLEASE Share your favorite Harry Potter small shops! I'd love to make these regular posts here =)



Til next time,
Maggie
