Meet 2 Companies I Love: Homejoy & Sesame Gift Sets

One of my favorite things about blogging are the connections that happen in a blink of an eye, especially via Twitter. Last week, a company I was not yet acquainted with, Homejoy, said hey to me on my page & next thing I know, a friendship was born & a beautiful package compliments of Homejoy & sent from Sesame Gift Sets was sent my way. All the goodies inside were complete Mary-esque & they are wonderful.

I absolutely love Homejoy’s story, from their web-site:

“Founded by sister and brother Adora and Aaron Cheung in July 2012, Homejoy started because the duo was unable to find a convenient and affordable cleaning service for their own home. Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, Homejoy has now grown to over 30 cities across the US and Canada. Whether you are a parent or a college student Homejoy is an easy solution to help out with your household chores.

If you need a cleaning once a year, once a month, or twice a week, Homejoy will fit to your schedule.”

Along with the cleaning services, they also are offering nearly everyone you often will need for your home; from plumbing to handymen, they offer them, too, which is such a great reference as we’ve already dealt with so many scenarios since getting our own home & have met a fair share of mediocre repair crews.

They’ve also introduced me to the beautiful fine gifts web-site, Sesame Gift Sets. “Rise and Shine set is filled with our favorite baubles and accessories for the home that make our mornings extra sunny”, Homejoy explains. The adorable tags attached to each trinket brought to mind Alice in Wonderland for me; “Scribble Me”, “Munch Me”, too fun.

I am loving that our bathroom is filled with the scents from a Citrus Verbena soap from ElizabethW, while Good News Company granola is delicious & makes me want to stay in our bathroom all day long!

I did as it said.

In the office, though, you can now find me taking my blogging notes & thoughts down on a chic notepad by Rifle Paper Company while sipping chamomile tea courtesy of Zhi Tea. This box provides seriously everything you need to get your morning off to a glorious spot. Which couldn’t be better for someone like myself, who is not a morning person. At. All.

These 2 companies are obviously perfect for one another & in great harmony. While I will definitely report back when I take advantage of Homejoy’s services, I hope you will join me as well in trying out all Homejoy has to offer, & order your next gift set from Sesame, too! xo

    Homejoy sounds like Brilliant idea for a company! Everything thing you need in one place. Would be really great for people new to neighborhood, bought a fixer upper or just don’t have time to clean. Awesome!
