Pattern Body Washes at miomia

The world’s finest body washes? According to Jim Fogg, the brains behind Pattern Body Washes, that was the goal while developing his line. And the end result? Elegantly-scented, multi-tasking cleansers (for hair, face and body) that are free of most “ick” you find in the competition.

  • No parabens
  • No animal testing
  • 100% vegan
  • No artificial anything

Fogg’s approach to fragrance is also revolutionary. Instead of incorporating single-note scents like most body washes, he created unique blends that “open up” in layers in the shower, like perfume. Pattern Body Washes come in 4 scents:

For my inner comic book geek: Robert Crumb Music Cards

Robert Crumb Music Cards at miomia

Many moons ago, as an undergraduate in Northampton, Massachusetts, I had the unique opportunity to intern at the oldest comic book publisher in the country, Kitchen Sink Press. As a “production assistant,” I handled all sorts of tasks, including paste-ups (does anyone remember these)?

My love for cartoons and graphics stem from childhood: watching my dad doodle on his prescription pad while calming down a frantic mother, gabbing about “X-Men vs The Avengers” with my brother. So, it’s no coincidence that two movies I adore as an adult involve the world of graphics: “American Splendor” and “Crumb.”

And growing up, I wanted to be a cartoonist.

So how could I not stock R. Crumb’s reissued (and sought-after by collectors) music trading cards? Denis Kitchen (of the now defunct Kitchen Sink Press) has brought these portable pieces of art+music+information back to life. Thank heavens. Check out miomia’s R. Crumb offerings by clicking on the links below.

Besides, aren’t you curious to learn more about the likes of “Blind” Lemon Jefferson and Gid Tanner & The Skillet Lickers?

miomia's newest brow & makeup artist, Katie Robinson

Meet our newest brow and makeup artist, Katie Robinson, this Sunday from 12-6pm. Katie is a an extremely gifted makeup artist who has been doing makeup professionally since 2006, and freelancing for Laura Mercier for the past three years. In addition, she ‘s assisted at New York’s Fashion Week (for our very own Thomas McEntee!) and various editorial shoots.

Says Katie,”The brows are the frame to the face.” She believes brows are to a person’s face as a frame is to a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Her philosophy is that brows must be natural, never emaciated, and always groomed to look healthy. A professionally-shaped brow can define the face by creating a finished look to any good makeup job, and therefore should never be ignored in the grooming or makeup process. Rather , it needs to be focused on and taken meticulous care of.

We’re so excited to have this talented artist on board. Did we also mention that she’s adorable, bubbly and super-fun? Come meet Katie this Sunday from 12-6pm, and enjoy a little brow love!


P.S. We’re growing our team of brow/makeup artists, so you’ll never have to do without a Sunday brow job again!
