Taylored Curiosities Feelings – Depression

Depression is the newest member of the Feelings family from Taylored Curiosities

Some days are harder than others. You feel physically, mentally and emotionally overwhelmed, exhausted and under the weather. It’s as if the entire ocean is smothering you and you can’t breathe. Silent tears. Loud tears. Hurt. Sadness. Darkness.
The only thing you really want to do, is to curl up and disappear for a while.....

On those days, talk to your Depression talisman. Tell it how you feel. Off load. Even if you need to yell it at it, Depression won’t mind. It will sit, it will listen and it will understand. Because it has a bad day every day. And most importantly remember; you are not alone. Reach out.

Each 1.5-inch tall Depression figure is accompanied by two mini (.6 inch tall) Depressions. These are hand cast and painted from an original sculpt. There are only 6 sets available, selling for £20.00 each (about $26.00).

Bao Bao Benny from Okedoki

Okedoki wanted to show the "evolution of Benny the Dreamer to a heightened state of consciousness in this new resin figure". So...welcome Bao Bao Benny. "Bao Bao means dumpling and also precious one in Chinese. Life is very precious and Okedoki wanted Bao Bao Benny to embody this philosophy."

The 5.25-inch tall Bao Bao Benny resin and metal figure is currently available to pre-order in two unique colorways. The Bao Bao Benny - Bliss Edition (White) is an edition of 15 pieces, while the Bao Bao Benny - Midnight Edition (Black) is an edition of 8 pieces. Each figure is signed and numbered by Okedoki and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and custom designed bag.

These are priced at $280.00 each and slated to ship around December 2018/January 2019.

Measuring in at 12 inches (I'm assuming the bowl's diameter), you can currently pick up one for yourself (or to share) for $29.99.

Positive Thoughts: Root Chakra Edition

Taylored Curiosities is releasing Positive Thoughts into the world, and this variation is specifically designed to help with Root Chakra healing. Each Positive Thought is handmade and completed with tiny, clear wings. They measure roughly an inch tall and no two will be identical due to their handmade nature. You can currently pick them up for £6.00 each (about $8).

Positive thoughts flutter all around us, but often it can be really difficult to actually see them. Our worries, anxieties and stresses in life cause a dark fog to surround us and in these times, finding that little positive thought is too hard.

But they are out there. I promise you!

I’ve been on a mission to find them and I’ve captured some beautifully bright thoughts. In earthy colours and with bright little eyes. These special thoughts are also adorned with a real, red garnet. This is the perfect healing stone for your root chakra.
