MOODBOARD

Sorry it's been so quiet lately, it's just that--1. I had to restock so much right after the holidays and had to find more reliable suppliers {small batch maker problems}, 2. Radioactive Mushrooms is undergoing a rebranding {which I hope you'll love as much as I do!} and 3.  I've been trying to piece things together, for a new collection. But hey, I'm coming out with two. I am so excited to share it all with you but I have to wait until everything is right. For the meantime, here are moodboards for the next two collections! And hopefully, you'll embrace these vibes with me. Love and good vibes!

Mint matcha goodness c/o Satori

If you ever need a cool, calm friend to ease the stresses that may come with the holidays, I'd like you to meet Satori. Inspired by a friend {yes, you, G!} who was looking for an aromatherapy scent that could do just as good, if not better, as a the one gifted to her {and hard to find, apparently}. She described the scent to me, and I toyed around with the essences I had with me, hoping to create the same, calming effect she described, without ever really smelling the original one. What I came up is something I loved, and hoped she would loved! I gave it to her and I'm happy to report I felt that she was very...

Naturally Tinted Balms

A couple of weeks ago I released a couple of naturally tinted lip balms in pots I called Rose Tan, because, well it pretty much sums up the sheer color it provides.   As you can see, it provides sheer coverage but is buildable. Perfect for summer, I think, and for low maintenance womyn. It goes on beautifully and reminds me that I have to, at some point very soon, take a quick break and go to the beach. (*Also, apologies, it is sold out at the moment! Don't worry, I am making more very soon!) I got a couple of requests though, for a more pigmented version of the balm and I must say I kinda was interested to...

Colors from Nature

I made quite a mess in our outdoor kitchen over the weekend--played with natural dyes. Radioactive Mushrooms in the Forest began as a little project my husband and I did for an annual outdoor art bazaar called Art in the Park in Makati. Most of the sellers in this bazaar are local galleries and organizations, but our friends Bru & Marcus gather illustrators and makers together for a booth now known as Aimless. Anyway, a couple of years ago, we had a couple of our photos and illustrations from our travels printed on scarves and a lot of people responded to them really well. That's where it all began. Years into making it, I've had to deal with quite a...
