as i mentioned yesterday, gardening is my new jam. i’ve been hitting the nursery so much they know me by name, but that’s okay — i like being a familiar face there. it will be a little while before i can really break ground on the pile of dirt on my hillside, so i’ve been planting lots of potted succulents, and herbs to cook with. my hands were getting pretty nasty, though — dry and cracked and my nails looked like a diesel mechanic’s, so i invested in some decent gardening gloves to protect them. then my friends at method invited me to try out their new Nourishing Hand Wash — an awesome idea, because clearly my hands needed help.  it moisturizes as you wash with nutrient-rich botanicals like seaweed and kelp extracts that leave your hands feeling soft, smooth and happy again. so much better!

i’ve stood behind method’s sustainable products for years — we even visited their test lab a while back and got to see how they create all the pretty smelling products they make. in this case, method’s Nourishing Hand Wash comes in Olive Leaf; Coconut Milk; and Almond Flower and all have a really fresh, clean scent and look pretty on your countertop, too! always a plus. method’s Nourishing Hand Wash will be sold exclusively at Target through October if you’d like to give your hands some loving care and kindness.

  1. What a lovely pictures. I also love gardening so much and I spent the whole summer taking care of my little balcony garden. Now it’s autumn here and I don’t know how I’ll survive without gardening the whole winter. Maybe I’ll start growing some herbs in my kitchen :)

  2. Hi, just wondering where those great looking pots are from. They look so much better than my ordinary terra cotta ones! And I’ve got to try that soap, my hands stay dry from so many washes!

  3. I enjoy gardening too and love working on my garden during weekends. Hand cream is very very essential after gardening to soften and nourish your hands!

  4. My thumb is not what you would call green, but these beautiful plants are certainly inspiring me to get back out to the garden! I do love my herb garden, and any plant that can thrive on benign neglect…
