Nicole’s take: I love bath products. I love to take baths and even more so now that I have 3 babies, a bath in the evening after they go to bed is an easy luxury for me to take advantage of. I got to try a variety of these products and they are super luxurious. My favorite was the Botanical Body Wash in Lemon Verbena. It smelled so awesome and I loved how my skin felt after the body wash. I also tried the body oil and the body butter in the other scents. I thought all of the scents were light and pleasant, nothing too overbearing and that my skin felt great after everything I tried! The products are very affordable and I love the high end quality and packaging available at CVS!

TruSoft By STAINMASTER Luxurious Bath Rug

by Pennie on September 29, 2014

stainmasterTruSoft By STAINMASTER Luxurious Bath Rug

Step up to the luxurious softness of TruSoft rugs from the makers of STAINMASTER. Designed with STAINMASTER fiber technology, these bath rugs absorb water and dry quickly, are easy to clean and have a rubber backing to help prevent the rug from sliding. Also, wash after wash, the color resists fading. Choose from a selection of 8 different colors in bath mats sized 17-Inch by 24-Inch, 21-Inch by 36-Inch and 24-Inch by 40-Inch, contour rugs and standard toilet lids, with each rug made in the USA from 100% nylon pile. Compare our rugs to other bath rugs and feel just how unbelievably soft and plush we are.

Soft to touch, constructed to absorb water and dry quickly

  • Rubber backing helps prevent the rug from sliding
  • Absorbs water and dries quickly
  • Luxuriously plush
  • Machine wash cold, gentle cycle, separately; Use only non-chlorine bleach as needed; Tumble dry low

Nicole’s take: It’s the little things for me now with 3 babies. Getting to take a shower. Eating 3 meals, etc. You get the point. So anything I can do for a little luxury I will. The TruSoft bath rug from StainMaster is incredible. It is so incredibly soft. I love stepping on it. It makes me smile and feel special. Even when there are 1, 2 or 3 babies screaming in the other room. It washes really well and is so fluffy. My dogs like to lay on it too!

JORD Wood Watches

by Pennie on September 27, 2014

wood-watches-logoIt’s about time someone delivered an unconventional answer to age-old wrist candy.  JORD watches are designed to take people back to nature and away from today’s metal & rubber. We want to challenge the norm by making unique time pieces as a focal point for everyday fashion.

delmar-23-front-angled

So what does your watch say about you?

This simple question sparked an all-night, red-bull fueled session that ended in the purchase of “World of Woods In Color” by William Alexander Lincoln. True story…

What if we could create watches made from diverse woods from all over the world? What if we could combine various grains and their natural colors to create a line of watches that ensures every watch is truly unique?
That was the night JORD was born…

Since that time, we have become obsessed with using natural materials to offer a unique fashion flare. Our wood watches are one of a kind, premium quality time pieces, hand-crafted with sustainable materials from all over the world.

JORD, Telling more than time…

2014-09-20 08.52.53

DELMAR SERIES Blue

$149

This watch will make you faster. This large face design with slick carbon fiber face plates do your collection of French cuffs or tank tops plenty of justice. We’re offering these bad boys in a variety of woods (including natural bamboo) and carbon colors. The engraved clasps offer double locking mechanism. So go ahead and speed.

  • Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 30mm x 36mm
  • Wood frame / bezel: 51mm x 46mm
  • Band width: 37mm – 26mm (transition design)
  • Lug ends: 47mm
  • Carbon fiber face
  • Double action locking clasp (stainless steel)
  • Premium Citizen Miyota movement
  • Includes stained bamboo display box
Each JORD watch is designed to be splash proof but is not intended for complete submergence in water. Also note that due to the nature of the wood chosen for each unique timepiece, colors and grain pattern may vary from photos.

 

For More Information:

2014-09-20 08.53.57

Nicole’s take: What cool watches JORD has! I had never seen a wood watch like this before and it took me a long time to pick out the one I thought would be perfect for Jamie! I settled on the Delmar Blue and it is STUNNING! The watch is not heavy but it is very well made. The wood is a deep rich color and the blue face gives it an extra elegance. It is definitely a man’s watch but it’s not bulky and Jamie is loving it
