About Us

 

Philippians 4:8 - Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

 

 

LTC is a wellness-inspired mental health advocacy brand promoting self-care, wellness, and conversations around situational mental health crises for the Sandwich Generation, those individuals pressured to support and care for their aging parents (or other family members) and their own children (including adult children and grandchildren)/partner.  

The pressures of family, personal and professional responsibilities can be overwhelming. It is reported that 1 in 10 parents are caring for an adult in addition to their children, spending, at a minimum, three hours per day on caregiving tasks for both their children and their parents. Approximately 12% of parents are a part of the Sandwich Generation and are quietly suffering under the weight of stress associated with managing the diverse care needs of multiple people.

Studies show that those in the Sandwich Generation lose at least a half-hour of sleep per night. This opens the door to the development of chronic stress which is the catalyst to serious health problems (high blood pressure, depression, etc.). 

We offer hand-printed apparel and lifestyle goods that serve as gentle reminders for you and unspoken clarity for those around you.

Wear your voice until you are able to speak it. At the very least, our apparel may help you start the conversation about your emotional/mental health struggles.

 

 

The triangle in our logo represents that the foundation of wellness starts with nutrition which supports the 3 facets of overall wellness. 

Philippians 4:8  - In order to experience God's peace in our lives, we need to intentionally manage our thoughts.  Paul includes thinking about whatever is lovely. This refers to things that are pleasing. 

What are YOU thinking about? What do you have hanging on the walls of your mind? How are those thoughts impacting your mental/emotional wellbeing? 

 

 

Our message is - you are enough, you are worthy, you can and should show up as your authentic self w/o apology. Every. Damn. Day. You are doing a lot. Prioritizing your self-care is imperative. Own your feelings of overwhelm. Talk about it. Then choose self-care.


An empty vessel cannot be of service to anyone else. BREATHE.

 

If you have lost your voice and hesitant about sharing your feelings and/or saying "no" OR you've never really had one, you can wear your voice and express yourself quietly and confidently. 

 

Express yourself quietly & confidently.

Remind yourself of who you are as you work towards your self-care and self-growth intentions. 

Lovely Things Co is passionate about living and working (and going to school) in inspired spaces surrounded by things that not only make us smile and buy also reminds us of who we are. Our statement apparel is that sticky note on your mirror inspiring you to think about "what is lovely".

 

 


 

Hey there! I'm Jacq. founder and creative behind Lovely Things Co. Our story reflects real-life struggle, ambition, self-preservation, resilience, hope, and overcoming. I hope you are inspired to become part of the LTC family.

As a card-carrying member of the Sandwich Generation, I know the struggle. Life as we know it kinda stops and auto-pilot kicks in. Self-care is but a dream state. Only a few years ago, my daughter was in middle school, I was healing from spinal cord and shoulder surgery, working on finishing my studies in nutritional therapy AND running my business. From the time of my father’s cancer diagnosis to the day he earned his wings, I have no idea how I managed all the things in that five-month period. My wellness was not a priority. It was, indeed, a rough time. Cleaning his house, grocery shopping, preparing meals, making sure he ate, rides to chemo/radiation (and staying during the treatments), advocating for him, and helping him prepare for his departure flight. Thank God for my sister, Dawn, whose shoulders shared the daily weight. This doesn't even factor in the pre-grieving process. We made it happen and survived to tell the tale.

Don't allow time to flash by as you manage the pressures of Sandwich Generation life. There are no do-overs. Take care of yourself. Now that I know better, I do better with supporting my mom whose health condition causes, among other things, cognitive problems. My brain is always at the ready to assist her in thinking through all the things in her little red wagon. Sandwich Gen life definitely requires INTENTIONAL self-care.
