Our November Pre-order Products will be available for preview on 11/1/2021

Mother's Day. May 2021

I lost my mother at what I consider to be a young age.  At that time, I was a grown adult with young children, but I was still in my twenties.  I recall thinking I am too young to not have my mother.  Aubrey lost her mother a few short years ago and I believe she felt the same way.  Too young, way too young not to have her mother.  I wonder, are we ever really prepared for the loss of our maternal figures? 

On the other hand, are our maternal figures ever really prepared for the loss of a child?  This week, I learned of another family's tragic loss.  My friend, Mike, that lives in Florida, has regularly posted on social media about a little boy named Tommy with Wilm's Tumor (a form of kidney cancer that primarily affects children).  For four years, I have followed Tommy's battle with cancer.  My family was a part of a group of people that prayed, encouraged, and supported this little boy as best we could. This past week, I learned that Tommy left this earth, and I felt this loss so intensely, so earnestly.  But more so, my heart goes out to his family for their loss.  I cannot imagine what this Mother's Day will be like for Tommy's mother, but it brings me to this thought.  While we are still within the throes of this pandemic, we may not be able to reach out and hug everyone we would like to, but we can still offer words and deeds of kindness.  This Mother's Day, this might be the very thing that someone you know might need without even realizing it.  Kindness costs nothing, but means everything.

Notes for May sales for HHC:

We currently have the pre-order for the Ethereal Amphitrite and Aphrodite 2.0 up with our May sales!  I realize that a lot of people were waiting for the pre-order instead of trying to scramble for the overstock we sold.  

Germanikure Moon files will be restocked this month!

New to HHC this month:



I am pleased as punch to announce that Saki Lacquers is joining HHC!!  I asked the creator behind the brand for a little biographical information and here is what she told me.

Maui Wowie Blend Restorative Cuticle oil -  Normally, we sell the Maui Wowie Restorative Cuticle Oil in the Hula Moon store with 10 mL glass roll on vials. For this particular event, there's been some supply chain issues trying to get more of our vials, so we are using 12 mL nail polish bottles with brushes!  We are super curious and excited to know what you think about this type vehicle of application for cuticle oils.  Hula Moon's Maui Wowie Blend Restorative Cuticle Oil is was born from our love of Hawaii.  Hula Moon is committed to finding the finest quality ingredients available and this product is no exception.  Our Maui Wowie formula is jojoba free.  Our recipe contains coconut oil, avocado oil, grapeseed oil, kukui nut oil, macadamia nut oil and Vitamin E.  It is quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving a non greasy feeling.  Instead, it leaves a hydrated and enriched feeling since it has an abundance of oxidants.  These will be sold for $12.00 and will be available in Cherry Blossom, Satsuma, and unscented fragrances.
