Born and raised in the Panhandle of Texas (despite a few years spent in Pennsylvania that I vaguely remember), I am a lover of local finds. I love my hometown! I never thought I would find myself saying it, but here I am. After moving away, even if it’s only an hour and 40 minutes away, you might come to appreciate that mom & pop shop where you buy those amazing aromatic car fresheners. Or, you’ll realize that nothing really compares to an Iced Poor Man Coffee from that coffee shop that could easily put Starbucks out of business. And a Chipotle burrito ain’t sh*t when you’ve had a Sharky’s burrito, is it?
I’ve recently come upon another amazing local find that I thought worthy of sharing with my fellow Panhandlers. The Yellow Rose Boutique is a startup company founded by miss Molly Ghormley. Not only is she the sweetest person ever (another hometown perk – the people are so NICE) but her products are phenomenal. And she makes them all at home! We live in a day and age where people want to actually know what is going into their products, and Yellow Rose Boutique delivers that sanctity of mind.
The Yellow Rose Boutique offers bath bombs, body scrubs, and customized jewelry pieces or you can choose from her pre-made jewelry. The owner, Molly, graciously gifted me with 4 bath bombs, a body scrub, and a custom necklace! She was the absolute sweetest person to work with and I am beyond impressed with the quality of her products! You would think they were from Lush.
Everything came packaged adorably with bright & fun tissue paper complementing the colors of the products. The bath bombs were shrink-wrapped to preserve them. This was especially nice because every time I purchase bath bombs from other places, if they’re not wrapped they chip and crumble everywhere and it becomes such a mess. I loved how clean and easy these were! The body scrub was in a generic container with a nice tight lid. Molly left a kind note displaying the ingredients in all of the products.
Just look at how pretty they are! I used them last night and I swear I have never smelled something so delicious. I have actually never used a body scrub before so I wasn’t quite sure if I was doing it right, but after massaging the vanilla-scented sugar scrub all over my legs for a few minutes, I jumped in the bath to wash it off and holy cow they were soft! Like seriously, I wish you could touch them because I could seduce a president with legs like that. I’ve been hard at work all day, so they’re back to their normal ashy state, but I will definitely be using this scrub again for the holiday.
After washing off the scrub, I of course had to drop in one of these little guys. Yellow has been my latest obsession, so I went with it. Guys, it was the coolest thing ever. This bath bombs foam instead of fizz. My bath turned into a decadent, heavenly-scented bubble bath! I did not expect that, but it was awesome. And when I thought it couldn’t get any cooler, it started to turn blue!!! I can’t wait to use the pink one!
The last gem in the box was this beaded tassel wrap necklace. I had seen a similar one on the Yellow Rose Boutique Instagram (@yellowrose_boutique) and I had to have one! Molly worked with me to choose colors and a pattern I liked and I am so happy with the result! The beads are head duty and not cheap feeling at all and it’s ideal length for wrapping in the style above. As I was shopping through Kohls yesterday, I found these yellow beaded tassel earrings that matched perfectly! However, Yellow Rose Boutique does offer earrings as well.
Overall, I am so impressed with the quality and overall experience I had with Yellow Rose Boutique. They do not yet have a pop-up location, but you can reach them at:
