Feelings of the Season - Tradition
What do a Christmas tree and a folded towel have in common? Well, not that much, but to me, they represent "the way I do things." Tradition.
Somewhere along the way my mom taught me how to fold a towel, and then when you go to someone else's house and see the "funny" way they fold towels...well, it just looks...different. Same thing with Christmas trees. Star? Angel? Tinsel? Matching ornaments or a wide collection? Frasier Fir or something else? You don't realize how much some of these things are ingrained in you until -- well, when you get a roommate, or get married, or something like that.
Not to say that things can't change. At Thanksgiving, in our house growing up, we were firmly apple and pumpkin pie sorts, but now, I like Pecan. Go figure!
Are there some things you just can't compromise on? Like, you just HAVE to have.... For me, I have to bake cookies at least once. Did I miss that? OMG, I missed THE WHOLE SEASON! Watching my favorite movie? OMG, if I miss that, I missed THE WHOLE SEASON!
I love trying new things, and appreciating different decorating styles, and trying new dishes, but this is a season steeped in tradition for me. You, too? What's "must-have" for you? We'll be sharing our stories this season - hope to hear from you!

We cannot believe that it's already the second week of December. While the calendar technically still says Autumn, your skin is likely showing the effects of winter temperatures.
With the changing seasons comes a need to adjust your skin care routine a bit.
Winter is the ideal time to repair and renew your skin. The long, hot summer temperatures -- and extra sun exposure that you experienced -- likely did a bit of damage to your skin, so now is your opportunity to do a bit of repair and prep your complexion for the winter months ahead.Here at Seed, we are sharing our expert tips for soft, healthy looking skin all winter long.
Still having a hard time finding the perfect gift for the holidays? No need to look any further, because our limited-edition Luxe Lemon Ginger Body Cream is just what you've been looking for.

There is something so very special about this particular body cream.
It's like a comforting cup of tea.
Not only is the formula pure luxury with its decadent, rich texture, but the ingredients sink right in to pamper even the driest of skin types.

Did you know that this cold, dry winter weather can have a major impact on your skin care routine? Our friends near the Great Lakes are seeing significant amounts of snowfall. My friend Lauren in West Seneca, New York has more than five FEET of snow. Let’s take a look at the low humidity and frigid temperatures affect your skin.
Itchiness and a tight feeling are common skin issues related to dry air, but there are some skin care tips you can use to help tackle the problem.
- Be gentle on your skin. When you dry off after bathing, be sure to pat your skin dry. Don’t rub.
- Always follow your shower or bath with a rich cream layered over body oil.
- Look for cream formulations instead of lotions and fluids for facial hydration.
- Avoid ingredients such as alcohol and sulfates, which will cause more dryness.
