As Seen In Baltimore Magazine

We were surprised and delighted to find ourselves in the June, 2011 issue of Baltimore Magazine. What a great pic! The 'Trend Watch' article is about some of the benefits that can be had by local salons, etc. if they carry local beauty companies' products: great face-to-face service, easy access to product, environmental friendliness, freshness. All true.

Summer is Near

We know this because there’s only 2 weeks left of kindergarten for our kids!  Then the namesakes of Becca & Mars will be helping us out more with the business.  That’s right... slave labor!  No, really, our best hope is that they play together outside nicely while we work.  And, we will count the days until camp.  Just kidding.

We Love Silver Spring!

We're excited to announce that Becca & Mars products are now available in a third location; ArtSpring, in Silver Spring, MD.  ArtSpring represents handcrafted works by talented artists and craftspeople from the DC/Baltimore/Silver Spring/Virginia area.  The store is amazing!  It's right in the heart of downtown Silver Spring and showcases art, jewelry, accessories, pottery, kids stuff, and gifts!  Learn more at http://www.artspringsilverspring.com/.

Becca & Mars – Other Influences – Food

This is Steff, and I’m all about the food.  Growing up in a first generation Sicilian (Dad)/Puerto Rican (Mom) home, food was, and still is, a joyous part of my days.   We’re extremely fortunate when food becomes more than just sustenance. I remember being very small and peaking over the table during the holidays that we celebrated, and I remember which holidays they were because of the food.  The cooking took days and the sweet and savory smells would entice us kids away from the television to sample the goings on in the kitchen.  Roasted lamb, artichokes, spring peas, rich, ricotta-laden

Becca & Mars – Other Influences – Music

This week you get a peek inside things that inspire Steff and Erica.  First up, music!  (Note: this is an Erica post, Steff will be up next) I made my first mixed tape when I was 6 years old by holding up a tape recorder to the radio.  Ok, that probably dates me.  The highlights were Andy Gibb and James Taylor.  I spent the next 10 years heavily influenced by pop, except one ‘cool phase’ in 8th grade courtesy of a German exchange student.  When puff metal came into vogue, I was right there, rockin’ it out to Bon Jovi, Europe and Def Leppard.  But then I grew up and things looked

Happy Spring from Baltimore

Have you noticed?  Crocuses have been around for a couple of weeks.  Redbuds, forsythia and daffodils are in bloom.  Cherry blossoms and magnolias are budding.  The city is gradually turning greener as new shoots, leaves and grasses start to grow.  I can smell the mock orange shrubbery in my neighbors’ backyard - the perfect blend of oranges and honey.
