Macro Friendly Sweet Potato Coconut Ice Cream

I hope everyones year is off to a fantastic start. It's hard to believe we are already approaching March next week !  I hope for those of you who set new years resolutions or intentions you are still holding strong & sticking to them. Today I am sharing a recipe that aligns perfectly with my intention of maintaining a healthy nutritional diet. I have recently returned to counting my Macros again.

What are Macros ?

In order for our bodies to survive & function the composition of our diet is essential & therefore it's important to understand the two different types of nutrients it can be split into: Macro-Nutrients & Micro-Nutrients. When it comes to Macro-Nutrients there are three, they all have their own specific roles & functions in the body & supply us with calories or energy. For this reason, the body requires these nutrients in relatively large amounts to grow, develop, repair & feel good. Each Macro-Nutrient is almost always found in every item of food, the only difference is how they are balanced. As an example, the nutritional composition of an avocado is generally made up of 75 % (Good Fats) 20 % Carbs & 5% Protein. This is clearly a fat based food. I believe that tracking macros is the most effective way to have control over your diet. It's the only way to know exactly what is going into our bodies. Tracking Macros year round is unrealistic however when you do track you will have an accurate understanding of what portion sizes your body needs, types of foods your body needs, & how often you should eat for your body to perform at it's absolute best. Once you've tracked for awhile you can switch to a more intuitive approach. I have spent the last few weeks in my intuitive stage & am now finding it necessary to recalculate & make the adjustments to transition back into consistent tracking of my set macros. There is no magic set of macros. The set that works for me likely won't work for you. There are too many factors that influence, including metabolism, gender, age, body composition, physical activity....The list goes on. For More information on how to calculate your specific macros feel free to email me at MozieMoByRachelLeigh@Gmail.Com

Choker Trends

Chokers are back! While one might believe the seductive necklace worn tight-to-the-neck originated in the 1990's, this accessory actually has a history dating back thousands of years. It is a style that has appeared across cultures in a variety of metals, stones, and materials. So how old is the choker necklace really? The oldest choker necklaces can be attributed to the Ancient Egyptians, who created them not only for adornment, but more for protection, along with jewelry worn on other parts of the body. Using gold to represent the sun, and lapis lazuli for the Nile River, the chokers were worn as powerful amulets.

This eclectic selection of modern-day chokers by Etsy artisans are designed to make an impression. From timeless metal collars to this handpainted boho-chic eagle, they are wearable works of art. 

Contemporary styles include a minimalist spheres necklace employing traditional glass-blowing techniques and a choker designed with metal forms using cast bones.

3 Ways to Make Your Website More Like Your Etsy Shop

I often get asked about how I built my website or what ecommerce template I used to create my online store. For now, I am happy with my Weebly template, but I have to warn you that my webmaster customized my template quite a bit to get the look and functionality I wanted for my shop. After redoing my website about 3-4 times in the last 3 years, I have yet to find a single template or platform that has worked exactly like I wanted to from the beginning. Your personal website will require more time and effort to maintain than your Etsy Shop, but is worth the investment if you want to grow your email list to build trust with your current and potential customers by consistently reaching out to them about your product offerings and promotions.

If you are thinking about creating your own website to sell your products, but you’re not sure if you have the budget to set up an online store that will make as many sales as you Etsy shop, this post series will reveal 3 ways that Etsy converts online lookers into buyers and how you can use free add-ons to help close your online sales.

Make it Easy for Customers to Contact You

The first pro tip is to make it easy for customers to contact you quickly. How many conversations does it take for you to close a sale on your Etsy shop? For me, it takes an average of 6 conversations back and forth between the buyer before they pull the trigger, because A) they don’t know me and B) they aren’t familiar with my product or sizing system. It is rare for my customers to make a purchase without contacting me as a seller first. Part of the reason people are comfortable purchasing from you after discovering your shop on Etsy is that they can easily message you if they have any questions about a product. There’s an “Ask a question” box literally on every listing page right next to the price. That’s convenient.  So if you open your own online shop without an obvious contact page or pop up window, and people can’t easily understand your unique product or offering, they will leave your website without purchasing.

Drift is a free add-on I use on my website that allows customers to chat with you in real time if they have a question. You can customize the message in the pop up window to add your email address or number for potential customers to contact you. People feel more comfortable purchasing online from an unfamiliar website if they can talk to a real person who cares first. Customers also feel confident that they can reach you if they have problems with their purchase.

Using Drift, you don’t have to wait on the computer for customer inquiries all day, because when someone types a message in the chat box online you immediately receive a notification on your phone through the free Drift mobile app (Available for both iOS and Android). Drift notifications also get emailed to your inbox and you can even connect it to your company's Slack account.

Stay tuned for part two and three of this series discussing other free add ons with features that are similar to your Etsy Shop and will help increase sales.

No-Sew Tee Shirt Tote Bag

I love tee shirts! Maybe too much? I have so many shirts that I thought were adorable, or hilarious at the time . . .and have worn maybe twice in ten years. I can't bear to get rid of them, but they either don't fit, or don't fit into my wardrobe anymore. But you know what I'll never outgrow? SHOPPING!! So today I am taking a stack of these tees and making them into stretchy little tote bags so save me from plastic bag after plastic bag on little errands.

Gather your materials and follow along! This is a great activity for a group & for little ones. All you need is:

  • A tee shirt, or 4, or 10! 
  • A sharp pair of scissors
  • A pencil or chalk

1. Lay your tee on a firm flat surface and mark cut lines around the collar and sleeves.

2. Cut out the collar and around the sleeves. These cuts will make the handles of your tote bag, so be generous! If the cuts are too close, your handles will be skinny. 

3. Cut 2-3" slits across the bottom of your tote, approximately one inch apart.

4. Now it's time to make your no-sew seam! Turn your project inside out, and starting in the middle tie the strips from opposite sides into small knots.

5. Once all of your knots are tied, flip your bag back to right side out et voila! A tee shirt tote bag in 5 minutes! 

This guy came out pretty small (I told you these shirts don't fit!) so this will be my drugstore/small errand bag. Luckily I have a whole stack of shirts to make into totes of all sizes! 

Industrial Eye Candy

Old objects, given a new life in an unexpected context, can become works of art in themselves. Such is the aesthetic appeal of the interior of Chelsea Market, the converted biscuit factory in NYC's Meatpacking District. The common expression, "Everything old is new again," is taken to a whole other level here, where one finds large-scale re-purposing of an entire city block now known for its gourmet eateries. This photo essay aims to illustrate how the building's "rawness" has been re-created to preserve its industrial beauty. 

One of the most striking things about the interior is being surrounded by the historical remains of the building: original flooring, brick walls, exposed pipes.  Instead of covering over the old, the design of the main hall celebrates the past in a stripped down setting, revealing its old character and beauty. 

Fans of recycled industrial salvage will be delighted by how the remains of the factory’s industrial past have been repurposed: the unique fountain of old drill bits, the elevators framed in shiny brass lockboxes, the hammered copper walls, and assorted pipes which lend a steampunk feel to the atmosphere of the market. Be sure to take notice of these unique spots inside the market on your next visit!

H o l i d a y D I Y

Happy Holidays my friends ! It's officially the week of Christmas, I can hardly believe it. Today I thought I'd share one of my latest D I Y projects with you guys. It's easy, budget friendly & festive! The holidays usually entail spending more money than usual, so when it comes to decking the halls with festive home decor who doesn't love saving a few extra bucks ? When I was growing up my Mother never spent money on fancy ornaments for our tree. It was always decked out from top to bottom in hand crafted one of a kind ornaments created by me & my two younger sisters that she had collected over our years of making them in school. It made for a very sentimental styled tree. I think anytime you make something yourself it becomes a little more special & valued in a way a shiny glass ball just isn't. Today's project is super easy anyone can do it. The entire project cost me less than 10$.

I started with letters from a craft store these ran me about 1.60 each

Market Makeover Plus Behind the Scenes at Sip and Shop

I’ve always wanted to do a makeover where you select items from different vendors at a market to see if you could walk away with a whole new look. So when I hired Pinky, our trendy new salesperson for the Holiday Handmade Cavalcade in Chelsea Market, I knew I she was just the girl for the assignment.

Check out Pinky’s favorite picks that transformed her look from girl next door to eclectic urbanite.

Pinky is wearing: Birdy27 Designs Suli Hat. Art-ologie Keys Necklace. Lavazzon Newspaper Print Convertible ScarfHook and Matter Fiber and Sterling Silver Cuff. Jenn Eng Studio Dark Olive Waxed Canvas Tote Bag.

If you missed the Handmade Cavalcade Sip and Shop, check out this behind the scene video that makes you feel like you were there!

This sold out event attracted over 1,500 guests who sipped complimentary Brooklyn Brewery beer and shopped over 30 members from the Etsy New York Team in Chelsea Market. The Handmade Cavalcade closes this Sunday December 11.

Fashion, Iceland, Earmuffs

Let's talk about fall and winter in Iceland. More specifically, let's talk about the fashion, design, and landscape that inspired me to make and bring these:

Faux leather earmuffs modeled by Shelly, a friend of mine.

But first, some history. Before going on this trip, I did a lot of research on the fashion and the lay of the land in Iceland. They call it the Land of Ice and Fire, not to be confused with the HBO series Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire (a significant portion of which was filmed in Iceland --they even have tours!), a name that both I and many others feel is quite apt for this (relatively) tiny country. Despite boasting a socioeconomically modern capital city, much of the country still remains undeveloped and wild. Once you leave the capital of Reykjavik, it's anyone's guess what happens. Spread out between miles and miles of untouched land, are other towns, or villages by our standards. The weather is wild, the animals are wild, the scenery is wild, and they draw almost 100% of their energy from geothermal plants.

There are countless other great pictures to show you of the varied and often extreme landscapes, but, I won't bore you with that for now. 

Moving on: the weather in Iceland can change unexpectedly and dramatically: sunny and rainbows one minute, violent storms the next, only to pass by within 10 minutes.

Understandably, there needs to be a lot of utility in Icelandic fashion with a need to stay both warm and dry while looking good. In the capital of Reykjavik (as well as in gift shops around the island) you can find many shops peddling high quality wool (from the sheep), down (from the Eider duck) and leather (both sheep and cow) products, made possible by the sacrifices of the brave animals, that do an amazing job at keeping you toasty. There is no place for extraneous extravagance in Iceland as the weather simply does not allow for it (at least not during the fall and winter); it is strikingly evident in their architecture and fashion alike. Minimalistic, high quality, and gorgeous.

People tend to dress in layers, finished off with leather or oversized woolen jackets/coats, and there are many designers that draw influence from the elements:

  1. Inklaw Clothing
  2. Dimmblá
  3. Feldur
  4. Even the Rekjavik Fashion Festival (a must-see destination for fashion bloggers)

The designs, as you can see (whether on purpose on ingrained in their psyche), draw from many aspects of the surrounding elements: such as the color (generally earthen --tans, beige, moss-green, black, white, grey) the texture (rocks, jagged mountains, ravines, waterfalls), the animals (furs, leathers), and even natural phenomenon (volcanoes, aurora). The beauty and majesty of Iceland is truly inspiring to many people across many different medium.

So knowing this, I designed the Faux Leather earmuffs to take on the trip in hopes of fitting in, or at least, making a worthy tribute. But... even with all the research I did, and the evidence I've seen while in Iceland, I wasn't quite sure if I truly succeeded... until. Until I happened across these gorgeous gloves in one of the many gift shops in Iceland (this one in particular next to Gullfoss):

pictured: Rân gloves from the brand Feldur, sold all around Iceland, a.k.a a match made in heaven

pictured: Rân gloves from the brand Feldur, sold all around Iceland, a.k.a a match made in heaven

My boyfriend saw them and pointed it out to me, and even bought them for me without asking. At first I was a little annoyed, because in general, gloves don't fit me very well. I am an in-between size, which makes it so they are always either too much of something: long loose, short, tight... (take note, glove designers: not everyone fits neatly into S, M and L) but he insisted I put them on. They fit, well, like a glove! In the midst of my amazement, it clicked then that this was the final piece I needed to be at peace with my earmuffs belonging in Iceland. It had all of the elements: soft leather (faux in my case), fur trimmings (inspired by sheep wool), and a sleek minimalistic design. A match made in heaven.

Mission complete, and I couldn't be happier.

Visiting NYC During the Holiday Season: Exploring, Shopping, and Sightseeing- Itineraries for Two and Five Days

When I returned to New York as an adult, a new friend and co-worker said to me, "New York City around the holidays is absolutely magical. The lights, the store windows, the snow - it is all so exciting! Then January and February hit and you wish all the snow and cold would disappear!" As a native, and now, seasoned New Yorker, I couldn't agree more with her statement.

With the Thanksgiving holiday, New York turns into a snow globe of magic. If it snows, even more so. People bundled up and sloshing around make for a quiet and pretty New York City experience. Sure, people are still as feisty as ever, it is the holiday season after all, and shopping can be overwhelming even for those prepared with lists and gifts already purchased, but there is an overall sense of happiness and delight that comes with interacting with strangers.

The holiday season is also the busiest for New York City travel wise. Many visitors from around the world come to experience all that New York offers during the season including the endless shopping. EtsyNY team members know all about the shopping season, as they're currently and hurriedly making and packing goods for upcoming markets. 

In preparation for the season upon us, I've put together a list, with the help of native New Yorkers and current residents, of what is considered "must do/see" when visiting New York in December depending on a two-day/weekend or a full five-day/week schedule.

Two Days in NY: Holiday Windows + Handmade Markets at Bryant Park and Union Square + Rockerfeller Center

1. You definitely want to see the windows of Macy's at 34th Street and Lord & Taylor at 5th Ave. Both are gorgeous displays of holiday merriment.

2. If you're looking for unique and special gifts for the holidays, you want to make sure you visit the holiday markets set up at Bryant Park at 42nd and 5th Ave (on the map in point 3) and Union Square* at 14th Street. There are a few more open holiday markets such as Columbus Circle (no map available), but, these two I can confirm definitely have EtsyNY Team members selling their handmade and locally made wares.

If you're visiting Union Square, I highly, and I mean highly, recommend you stop at The City Bakery on 18th between 5th and 6th Avenues. They have some of the most decadent hot chocolate in the world. They also have these amazing homemade marshmallows that slowly melt by the temperature of the hot chocolate. YUM! As you're walking along this tour, you'll be glad to have one! 

Note on this map that Chelsea Market, which is hosting our annual Handmade Cavalcade, is listed on here and is the main focus on this map. Our Handmade Cavalcade is detailed below in the five day/week long schedule.

3. Last, but not least, you'd have to see 42nd Street, or Times Square. Minutes away from there is Bryant Park, which is listed as a place to shop at their open holiday market; Grand Central Terminal, which is a beautiful building and also has trains to points North by way of Metro North; Rockerfeller Center, which has their famous Christmas Tree; and Radio City Music Hall, which currently has the Rockettes Holiday Show, "Christmas Spectacular" performing and is a must see.

Five Days in NY:  Holiday Windows + Handmade Markets at Bryant Park and Union Square + Rockerfeller Center + NY Botanical Garden Annual Train Show + Christmas Lights in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn

1 - 3.  See the three maps above and check out all of those options, as they're within walking distance from each other.

4. If you have a couple of hours to spend walking the grounds of the New York Botanical Garden, I recommend it. Currently, the annual Train Show (celebrating its 25th year!) is on display and it is perfect for children and adults! The trains have history and, as is New York City, are always evolving. I suggest you add this to your visit to Grand Central Terminal. You can purchase a ticket upon arrival, or on MTA's website to take the Metro-North Harlem local line to Botanical Garden Station.  It's a 20-minute train ride. The main entrance is across the street from the train station. You can't miss it!

Note: Almost directly across from the NY Botanical Garden is the Bronx Zoo. I'm not sure what they have on display for the Holidays, but if you're up there, you might want to make a full day and visit both locations. Remember, they're both large and you'll want to map your day accordingly if you do both.

Remember, they're both large and you'll want to map your day accordingly if you do both.

5. Take a tour of the houses with Christmas light displays in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn! This is another option that requires some time and should be done in the evening. The lights go on at dark, around 5pm and stay on until around 9pm, give or take. The lights are definitely worth seeing around mid-December, if you can trek out to Dyker Heights. When I visited a few years ago, I did a bus tour through A Slice of Brooklyn that ran 3.5 hours, met at Union Square, and had a cannoli and coffee stop at the end. Their website (link above) has all details, including how to purchase tickets. Well worth the money in my opinion!

If you're not interested in spending that kind of money, you can take the subway to Dyker Heights, averaging around an hour each way and walk around the houses. There are some hills, so if you go the walking way, don't complain that you were not warned! Also, depending on when you go, it may be really cold, so you'll want to be bundled warmly if walking around.  Free Tours by Foot has some great instructions on how to best get there, along with streets and houses you want to make sure you see.

Note: Brooklyn is not scaled and therefore is not accurate. It should be wider.

4. Last, but not least, you should head over to Chelsea Market. It's an institution and the High Line Park is around the corner. It has delicious eats and some great shops and most importantly, it will have the EtsyNY team Holiday Handmade Cavalcade (HHC) for the third year!

This year, the HHC will run for a full week - opening Monday, December 5th and closing on Sunday, December 11th. We are hosting a "Sip 'n' Shop" event on Thursday, December 8th between the hours of 6:30pm and 9:00pm. The event is sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery and will have alcoholic beverages for you to drink while shopping. The Handmade Holiday Cavalcade is a sought after event and we highly recommend RSVPing ahead of time for both the Cavalcade and the Sip 'n' Shop event. Shoppers without an RSVP will be charged $2.00 at the door.

If your holiday travels bring you to NYC at any time through the holiday season, we welcome you! Not to mention, you have a few ideas on how to spend your time. We hope you'll enjoy them, if you do decide to use these suggested schedules.

If you happen upon our glorious City during December 5th-11th, we hope you'll find your way into Chelsea Market and into the doors of our Handmade Holiday Cavalcade, leaving you with everlasting treasures from your holiday visit.

Happy Holidays!
