Bamboo Cutting Boards {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Behold: bamboo!  I’m seeing this element in all sorts of things lately, have you?  Bamboo sheets are all the craze, bamboo clothing is popping up left and right, and bamboo kitchen items, especially cutting boards, have been a hot item recently.  This is the Bamboo Styles 3-Piece Cutting Board Set.  Read on to see why this is an excellent find for just over $20.

So why bamboo?  It is naturally anti-bacterial and products made from 100% bamboo are socially responsible and very green.

These bamboo cutting boards are thick and tough.  Clearly, these are made from fine, strong bamboo, and not merely filled with particle board.  I’ve only owned thin plastic cutting boards in the past, so at first, these felt very bulky and heavy (even though bamboo is 33% lighter than Oak), but I’m beginning to see how a sturdy and durable board makes food prep a little more safe and practical.  Bamboo won’t dull your knives and the natural color is beautiful in all kitchens.

Bamboo can be a little more temperamental when it comes to cleaning, and the care instructions recommend not placing these in the dishwasher, but rather, hand washing with soap and occasionally applying mineral oil.  Usually, I wouldn’t bat an eye at anything that involves more maintenance than a cycle in the dishwasher, but since we’re moving next month to an apartment without a dishwasher, we might be able to make this work 🙂

No dyes or colors have gone into the construction of these boards.  They are food safety tested and free of fertilizers and pesticides.

Overall, I’m really liking these boards.  I think I’ll get over the fact that they are heavy and not dishwasher safe, and focus on the anti-bacterial qualities and the sturdy construction.

You can purchase this set on Amazon HERE for $21.97.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

I’m robe-wearin’ girl.  Pretty much from Sept. to May, you can find me sporting a casual robe around the house until atleast 10am.  I love the enveloping feeling of being wrapped up in something cozy, while still looking decent for the UPS man who starts making his rounds at daybreak.  Plus with all these little boys who are becoming increasingly more impressionable, I can’t just lounge around the house in whatever I feel like!

I’m ecstatic about introducing you to the designer loungewear of Sassimi!  You can get a pretty good idea of all the super chic and stylish styles from the picture above.  Cute stuff, huh?!  Could you tell that all of their clothing is made with bamboo?  Impressed?  Behold the power of bamboo!  If you didn’t already know, bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, temperature regulating, wicking, repels odors and is bio degradable!  Combine the luxurious qualities of bamboo and fashionable, comfortable loungewear, and I bring you Sassimi.
It was my honor to review the DEL MAR MIDWEIGHT SPA ROBE in Coral, and this honestly might be one of my favorite review items of all time!  The first thing I noticed as I took it out of the box was its buttery soft texture and heavy weight.  Surprisingly heavy for how soft and breathable it is.  The fabric is so silky and fluid that it will perfectly hug any body type and any curves you have or haven’t got.  Pardon my bedhead…

The breathable nature of bamboo makes this wearable in any season.  Cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  Now that the weather is getting cold, this is all I want to wear 24/7.  My husband likes it so much, he keeps telling me that I should wear it to church!  Haha, no, I tell him, wearing robes to church is not encouraged, but its true, the design and fabric make this eco-chic lounge wear look just as nice as a Sunday-best dress.  This little number is SO soft and silky, you just have to feel it for yourself.  The color is the prettiest pink I’ve ever seen, and the tie stays snug and secure with one loose knot.  You’ll feel like a million bucks in one of these.  Especially if it matches your fingernails!

I believe a girl is allowed and entitled to feel feminine, beautiful, and comfortable at all times, even and especially in loungewear!  Wearing one of these robes will make you feel like royalty, even at 3am rocking a baby to sleep.  🙂
Buy it on Amazon for $68.99 for your own little piece of heaven.

Sassimi is giving away the same robe I got to review!  One DEL MAR MIDWEIGHT SPA ROBE in your choice of size!

KicKee Pants {Review}

Labor Day “officially” marks the end of summer, at least according to people who have kids in school. For those of us with kids little enough to be at home 24/7, summer’s still going, and will be for at least another month. But for those of you with school-age children, chances are, you’ve already done most of your back-to-school shopping, or maybe you’re going to finish it up this weekend with all the good Labor Day sales. But in case you’ve got just a few items of clothing left on your list or you’re looking for a gift for a friend (or something for yourself!) look no further than KicKee Pants!

KicKee Pants designs all its clothing with the idea that “children should feel unrestricted by their clothing, even when they are dressed up, and that apparel for little ones should celebrate the innocence of childhood!” I love this mantra! Kids should be able to run, skip, tumble and play in their clothes, but not have to live in grungy sweats 24/7 to be able to do so. KicKee Pants has an adorable girls line including dresses, rompers, pants, hoodies, tights and leggings, and much more. Check out just some of these cute designs!

Their boys line is equally cute (though we should say “cool” for the sake of the boys). I love their pajama line–they pair fun fabrics in bold colors for the bottoms with a coordinating top. Some tops have a large single-digit number on them. How fun would it be to get a set of pajamas with your new age for your birthday?!

We were sent the Print Long Sleeve Polo in River Lattice to review. The shirt is solidly constructed and fits just right. My son is currently wearing a size 4T/5T/Boys size 4, and the size 5 fit him perfectly. The sleeves seemed a bit short, but maybe my son just has monkey arms (his dad does, so it’s a possibility). The fabric (95% Viscose from bamboo, 5% Spandex) is SUPER soft and stretchy and feels like it would be so comfortable to wear. It is long sleeved which will be warm in the winter but is light (not thin) which is good for my always-running-around-and-getting-sweaty boy. I love the print–it is fun and unique, and the colors blend well together. The blue looks great on my son, too! There’s no way I could get him to put this on with a pair of jeans or khaki pants in this heat, but you can imagine how slick this would look paired with a pair of pants!

KicKee Pants also has a great Women’s line. They sell all sorts of cute Maternity Shirts as well as Nightgowns and Robes. The nightgowns are made out of the same fabric as the shirt we were sent, and believe me, I could LIVE in a nightgown made out of this fabric.  I really don’t think I’d ever change out of it because it’s just so soft and stretchy and dreamy. The website suggests pairing the Nightgown with a Newborn Outfit (which they also sell) as a shower gift–how perfect would that be?!
