FOR THE TRAVELER and LOVER OF FINE JEWELRY:

#3 Gentle Jewelry Case

site-logo
This lovely little case is exactly what it sounds like.  A zippered pouch with two layers of soft padding that keeps your jewels secure, stationary, and completely enfolded in foam.  Nothing moves or shifts when the case is rotated or dropped, and it works like a charm!  I use this every time I travel now, and my delicate jewelry is slightly compressed and stays right where I leave it.  No shifting, scratching, de-tangling, or losing small pieces anymore!

FOR THOSE WHO LOVE NATURAL PRODUCTS:

#4 Alki Organix

Web Banner with Green 1-26-13  v2

This is such a unique product!  These balms are made completely from 100% natural ingredients.  They contain only natural oils and butters, organic beeswax, organic lecithin, organic witch hazel extract, and/or organic apple cider vinegar.  They are lighter, without being greasy, and they just melt into my skin.  I’ve been using the “Chocolate Orange” scent non-stop for months, and I can’t get enough of it!  These tiny bottles last FOREVER because they don’t contain any water, so the concentrated formula goes a long way.  You can purchase from the online store (http://alkiorganix.com/) or on Amazon.

Fore!! Axel & Hudson {Giveaway}–CLOSED

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.

Today’s giveaway is for a company that makes golf-inspired clothes. The closest I’ve ever come to golfing is miniature golfing, but I’ll come closer if it means I get to dress my kids like this all the time!

Fore!! Axel & Hudson is an adorable kids line geared toward golfers and future golfers.  Designer and golf-addict Paul Nguyen spent 14 years in the fashion world, creating his own line after his two kids were born.  Fore!! Axel & Hudson is his Boys line and was named after his son, Hudson, and Tiger Woods’ son’s middle name, Axel. His Girls line, Fore N’ Birdie, was inspired by his daughter, Isabella. Most pieces in his collection are crafted from ultra-soft and sustainable bamboo/spandex. ALL the pieces in his collection are adorable, and I had trouble picking just one thing from each line to review! See what I mean?

I finally settled on the Long Sleeve Melange Terry Top for my 2-year-old, “Sunny.” This top is from the Fore N’ Birdie collection. The details on this shirt are endless. From the ribbed sleeves to the layover lace on the front and back of the shirt to the birdie (get it?) on the bottom of the shirt, it’s beautifully crafted.  I love the curved shape, and the fabric is thick, making it ideal for cold, outside weather, but is still soft and a bit stretchy. The top is a 3T and is a bit big on her still, but she’s in-between sizes, so I’d say their clothes run true to size.

The thing that originally attracted me to Fore’s line was their collection of hats. From fedoras to newsboy caps to porkpies to drivers caps, they have it all, and they’re all stylish!
hats I chose to review the Houndstooth Fedora for my son, “Ralph.” When I opened the box, it had this adorable bow on it, and I thought, “Oh no, they sent me the wrong one. This is the girl’s version.” But, it turns out they have made it versatile; the bow is a clip that can be removed to make it a masculine hat! So smart, right?
hat The hat is well made, and again comes down to the details. It is sturdy, cleanly sewn and is lined with a red, white and blue check print. And look how classy he looks in this awesome hat!
