Why I'm Not Ashamed to Read Trashy Romance Novels

It's easy to get a little embarrassed when your literati friends ask what you're currently reading... and the answer is a trashy romance novel. These books often have a stigma attached, that the audience is completely made up of crazy-cat-ladies indulging in an indiscretion. Obviously these broad generalizations don't line up with reality, so why the weird guilt? It's not necessary.

Frostbeard 5-Year Recap

Frostbeard is five years old! Looking back, as usually happens, it feels both a longer and shorter amount of time in the making. In the blink of an eye, I went from brewing candles in my mom's kitchen to having a successful small business with a permanent location and three employees. I swear I've spent half my life stickering wicks, but alas, it's only been a few years!

BOOKSTOR-IES [EPISODE TWO]: Moon Palace Books (Minneapolis, MN)

Second Episode of our Bookstor-ies is the Longfellow Neighborhood treasure, Moon Palace books! Moon Palace is a testament to the idea of small neighborhood bookstores. Owners Angela and Jamie Schwesnedl opened shop when independent bookstores were on the decline and the ominous shadow of Amazon was starting to take hold of the market.

10 Art Prints Every Book Lover Needs

Here at Frostbeard we're all suckers for Bookish art. If there is one thing nerds are good at, it's definitely spending money on geeky things. My apartment, for starters, is a poorly organized dragon horde of nerdy merchandise. Here are my top 10 favorite book inspired Art Prints that you can buy today!

What We're Reading - January 2017

Naturally, we're avid readers at Frostbeard (pushes nerd-glasses slowly up bridge of nose), so here's a look at a few of our favorite reads from January.

Embracing Hygge - Our Coziest Candles

Hygge is a Danish term which roughly translates to "coziness," but it's the all-around feeling of pleasure and comfort; being relaxed and surrounded by people you love, doing things you enjoy. Thick wool socks and chunky sweaters, hot cocoa in front of the fireplace and candles are all examples of this concept. We've highlighted our coziest candle scents to help you create the most hygge atmosphere possible this winter. 

10 Mugs for Book Lovers

Few things go together better than books & coffee (or books & tea, for those picky tea drinkers. Just kidding, we love you too tea... we just aren't addicted to you). Well then, it makes sense that book lovers would want a mug collection to enhance their reading experience, bringing even more joy than thought feasibly possible while curling up with a favorite read. Here are a few of my favorite bookish mugs to improve your mug game, for whichever hot beverage you choose.

BOOKSTOR-IES [EPISODE ONE]: Boneshaker Books (Minneapolis, MN)

Don’t you sometimes wish your bookstore was a little more revolutionary? Tucked away behind a vine covered facade in the notoriously left-leaning Seward Neighborhood of Minneapolis is Boneshaker Books. A small, volunteer run bookstore looking to be just that.

Ready for 2017

Hello Frostlings!  A long overdue update is in order. We're going to start blogging regularly about our candle business, books we're reading, silly cat videos we're watching on an endless loop, etc. So here's what's been happening in Frostbeardland...
