Winter is finally here and for our family, the drastic change in temperature demands we pay better attention to our skin. Wind, cold and bright sun can be especially hard on sensitive skin like ours. CP#1 is prone to chapped lips, and MP, who runs outside throughout the winter months, has rough hands and feet. And whether we are cross country skiing or sledding, all of us need to protect our lips and faces from the elements.

For MP, the challenge has always been finding a bodycare line that appeals to the whole family. Enter Mad Gab’s — a Westbrook-based company that specializes in lip and body balms made with a balanced combination of natural and organic ingredients. Their line also includes convenient, SPF 30 Sun Sticks for sun protection on the go.

In Maine, which often feels like one big small town, it’s not uncommon to experience six degrees of separation. Take, for example, the roundabout way MP discovered the Portland studio and shop, More & Co. While visiting Tandem Coffee, she came across the gorgeous quarterly 3191 Miles Apart: a lifestyle magazine based in Portland, Maine and Portland, Oregon. MP noticed that the Maine contributor, Maria Alexander Vettese, is one of the founders of More & Co., and that’s what led MP to this beautiful shop.

More & Co. is a colorful space that’s especially pleasing to visit in the spring, when our landscape is still brown and gray. There is so much for adults and kids to love here. The shop is a great resource for inspired gifts.
