Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing? Happy freaking New Year!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, or as good as it can in this state of the world.

 Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  This blog post is an exciting one for me to write about because it is going to be all about our 2021 Love-Brain Halloween Collection! This has been a long awaited collection on our end because we actually started coming up with the inspiration behind these in June-yes that’s right y’all- JUNE.

When we talk about merchandising, the last week of August is generally a...
