My biotiful bag is the result of a desire to create a sustainable organic accessory for eco-friendly, stylish shoppers. The handbags are made from certified organic cotton and dyes that are free of heavy metals. The company strives to raise awareness for organic cotton and its positive impact on people and the planet. Their bags are sustainable from the inside out.

My Biotiful Bag Review:
I was offered the chance to review one of these bags and they are not only nice bags they are really well made. I chose the Workout Bag in Deep Red. I love the size for the gym or quick overnight trips.

First thing I noticed was the quality of the bag. Its made a really nice durable cotton and had a bunch of great features from a shoulder strap, double zipper to interior pocket to keep valuables and small items safe.

I have used this bag for the gym and a few beach trips and I love it. The double zipper and snaps keeps my stuff in place and its the perfect size, not too big but enough room to fit all the necessities. I really love the color of this bag, the red is so vibrant I can’t get enough.

This will be so handy all summer long, I am so impressed with this line. On top of making great bags I love that the line is eco-friendly. And they have so many styles and colors to choose from any of these bags would make a great gift.

Supergoop Self-Tanning Sunscreen Mousse

In a word…. genius! Two of my Spring/Summer necessities rolled into one great product. I am very fair and love to use self tanners or bronzers to keep my skin from looking paper white. One issue is always using self tanner during the day then adding sunscreen on top. It can get thick and sticky quick.

Supergood has combined both self-tanner, moisturizer and sunscreen in one great mousse. The product is thick and mousse is the best way to describe the texture. It doesn’t have any strange self tanner smell and applies really easily. Within two days use my skin has a great healthy glow all while stay protected from sun damage. A great product for those of us who want a bit of color but want to avoid skin damage. This will be a summer staple for me!

Spoil Dad this Father’s Day with a Jord Wooden Watch!

Father’s Day can be tricky. Your dad and/or husband  do so much, but a tie or a round of golf don’t show your appreciation for all they do. Well spoil him this year with one of the fantastic wooden watches from Jord…. yes you heard that right, wood! I was given the chance to review one of these watches and they are as cool and unique as I imagined. In Oregon I think owning a watch made out of wood I officially just became royalty. Just refers to me as Countess.

Let me tell you a little about JORD watches, they are made from different woods from all over the world including bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, and teak. The glass is made from scratch-proof blue film glass. The best part is that each one is hand-crafted from natural materials making each one truly unique.

The watch in this post is the Delmar Series in green model. The Delmar comes in five design options at the affordable price of $149 USD.

The watch is really amazing in person and its really all made of wood. I love how unique it is and while the watches are a great size the wood makes them lighter than your average watch. The JORD watches are very wearable and a great conversation piece. These are extremely well made watches and would make a wonderful gift for dad, grad or a groomsmen gift.

To clean your JORD Watch you mix two tablespoons of olive oil and lemon juice and apply the mixture to a cotton cloth and then to the watch. Jord watches are splash proof, meaning they will withstand some water being splashed from a kitchen sink, but they are not designed to be submerged in water.

If you are looking for a gift he won’t forget, head over and check out all the great wood watches available from JORD!

Korres Greek Yoghurt Cooling Gel Aftersun

We enjoyed a beautiful and sunny Memorial day in Oregon yesterday. And unfortunately as I forgot to reapply my sunscreen I was a little red by the time we packed up the BBQ. I grabbed my Korres After Sun Cooling gel and applied it as soon as I noticed the burn.  My skin drank this lotion in! Its so light and fresh and felt so great on. Its not stick and has a fresh and clean scent that smelled as great as it felt on my skin. I used it on my face, lips and shoulders and they all felt better right away.

Today the redness is gone and my skin feels moisturized and soft. This will be a staple for my beach bag this summer!
