I love all things Etsy! Its where I get my deodorant, where I find adorable items that I just need. During this pandemic, people are facing hardships and small businesses are disappearing. While supporting any business right now helps out, I don’t know need to know everyone’s financials to know that it’s harder for a large-scale company to make it through hard times than it is for a small one. If you still need some stuff, support your small and local businesses.

Anyways, no one’s leaving their house, so you might as well enjoy this scrunchie trend from the comfort of your home where no one can see it…the perfect way to wear scrunchies!
