Koi Kouture Strikes Back!

Shhh...we're making Mandles while the baby is sleeping. Inventory is pretty limited, so if you want something for Father's Day (and who doesn't want to give Dad a Stripper Breath Mandle) you better jump on it!

Meet the newest member of the Koi Kouture team!

He's been helping us perfect the Dirty Diaper Mandle scent.

Stay tuned...we're staging a full on comeback!

I hate to do it, but....


Ho ho noooooo!

So not manly, but come on. Power tools and baby bumps? Not so much.
Although, that's a really great idea for a baby shower theme!

If you've got any special requests or Man Candle emergencies, email me at I'll do my bestest to help.

Happy Holidays! Be sure to drink an extra beer for me!

...aaaand we're back!

I finally pulled myself out of my bridal/baby coma and opened my etsy shop. Just a little bit though.

More to come next week...this time I mean it. This girl is getting bored!

Come say hi!

That's Mrs. KoiKouture to you!

Hey there all eleven of you who might read my blog! Guess what???
I'm married, yo!
Guess what else?
I'm preggers, too!
Successful honeymoon?

Anyhow, just want to throw a quick update out there so that you don't think Koi Kouture drowned in the pond. I'm re-launching some Mandle-awesomeness next week, so get ready.

No, seriously. I got married. Here's proof.

(by the way, best photographer on the planet! Check out her shiz.)

More soon. Stay tuned...or don't. I understand if you're busy.

Haute Man...dles!

Check out Mandles mention in Haute Apple Pie Blog! I'm all about this blog! Such great gift picks, plus Modern Homemaking! Sign me up!

Ok...this is the part where my stomach takes over blog writing.
Hello, I'm Danielle's stomach. I'm the devil. Sometimes I makes her rationalize eating beans and rice withe the idea that because she's Mexican she's genetically predisposed to not gain weight. My latest ploy is to make her prepare this amazing Apricot Jalapeno Pulled Pork that I saw on the Haute Apple Pie Blog because it's got jalapenos, which are good for Mexicans, and apricots, which are healthy because they're a fruit. Healthy!

Don't scroll down...deliciousness is about to happen....

Enjoy...don't tell Danielle about my evil plans.

Cyber Monday!?!

Did you know it's Cyber Monday? For some reason, this kind of freaks me out in a "Welcome to the future" kind of way. Anyhow, evidently it's the future and I'm having a Cyber Monday promotion! Yay!

In honor of Cyber Monday, Custom Mandles are the price of in-stock Mandles in my etsy store! So find 25 bucks and get your Mandle on!

Clicky click here for some Mandle Awesomeness!

Rare Sasquatch sighting..on Etsy's Front Page!!!

What uuuuup? That's what I say when I get all cocky. This is my first
etsy front page and I owe it all to AYLLA! Evidently she included ole' Sasquatch in her treasury and it was picked up by etsy to be front page material. I didn't get to see it when it was up, but I saw that it was featured and verified it Craft Cult Yeaaaah!

Sorry for the arrogance...that was just really exciting for me.
