Designer Bamboo Robes from Sassimi {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.

I’ve become a year-round exclusive robe-wearer and I love it!  Its the last thing to come off at night, and the first thing I put on in the morning.  I love the added layer of material on my skin and feeling a little closer to being dressed during those painfully early morning hours while I’m getting breakfast on for the 6-am-ers around here.  Ever since I was able to try out a bamboo robe from Sassimi last year, I decided that I wanted nothing else when it comes to my robes.  Have YOU experienced the wonder of bamboo on your skin?  If you have, you’ll probably agree with me.

Sassimi is a line of the most comfortable luxury loungewear I’ve come across.  They feature flowy pants, loose tops, and luxurious robes, and all in their signature bamboo material.

Now recently, Sassimi has come out with some new products that I am really excited about!  They’ve added new Ibiza dresses, tunics, and ruched tops in these vibrant cool colors.  They look nothing but comfortable, breathable, and perfect for summer.

With their new line of clothing, they’ve added a new robe: the LA JOLLA CONTRAST SPA ROBE, and I am crazy about these!  The cut, the colors, and of course, the material is making me want one in every color.

I begged Sassimi to let me review one of these beauties, and was so so happy to receive the robe in this Bedazzled Blue!

This blue color is bright and rich, and it reminds me of my Alma Mater 🙂

How do I describe this besides “utter comfort”?  Like I said, if you haven’t tried bamboo on your skin, you are really missing out.  It is one of the softest fabric I’ve worn, while still having a lovely mid-to-heavy weight that makes you feel enveloped in something luxurious.

An enclosed elastic back waistband helps to make this robe comfortably snug around your body.  I like the two ties–an inner tie and an outer–that keep this from coming loose.  The fabric is so breathable that you could wear this to bed and not wake up feeling clammy.

I think because I chose a Medium, these sleeves, which are meant to be 3/4 length on average arms, fall pretty much right at my wrists.  Its like a long-sleeve robe to me, but maybe just an inch above what would get in the way of doing dishes, but other than that, this is an excellent fit.  I think this design is meant to fit a variety of body shapes well and comfortably.

As I’ve said before, I have a thing for Mediterranean food. Not everyone in my family shares the same taste, but my awesome sister- and brother-in-law and my father-in-law love it as much as I do. So when we were together over the Christmas holiday, I knew they would be the perfect subjects for my latest review of Cedar’s Mediterranean food!

logo

Cedar’s Mediterranean began in the 1980’s  and was soon the first manufacturer to self-distribute Mediterranean foods in grocery stores. The brand grew in the 90’s when the Mediterranean diet became popular, and today Cedar’s can be found nationwide and is known as America’s Best Tasting Hommus. So is it really the best tasting hommus in America? We were ready to find out.

products

I was sent a giant box of some awesome Mediterranean snacks: Taboule Salad, Chickpea Salad, Tzatziki Dip, Classic Hommus, Red Pepper Lentil Hommus and two big bags of Pita Chips! My family sat down and enjoyed a Mediterranean feast one day, and these are the notes my brother-in-law took. They’re so thorough and detailed, and I pretty much agree with everything that he said, that I’m just going to paste them verbatim:

food

Pita Chips: Light and flaky, good for dipping. Pairs well with hommus dips. Nice neutral flavor. Tzatziki: Tangy, cool on the palatte. Nice balance of flavors. Good as a vegetable dip (carrots, celery, cucumber). Classic Hommus: Smooth, stands on its own. Has a nice “vinegar-esque” tang, tastes fresh, mild. My sister-in-law said it was the best classic hommus she’d ever tasted! Red Pepper Lentil Hommus: Mild, thinner, the sweetness of the bell pepper comes through. Like the pieces of red pepper in the dip. Expected more of a spice/strong flavor, but it’s not bad. Chickpea Salad: Cool and light. Oregano is strong. Good replacement for chicken salad.  Would be good as a salad garnish instead of dressing. A nice, low-cal way to add zest to a dieter’s menu! Taboule: Parsley flavor is unique. Doesn’t stand alone very well. Fresh tasting. Not the group favorite, but still good.

eat

My brother-in-law did note that the serving sizes are small (2 Tbsp.) so most of the products are intended to be a light garnish on toast/salads, etc., not as a side dish on their own. But it’s hard not to pig out on something when it’s so good! After trying so many of Cedar’s products and being this impressed, I’m certain that ALL of their products are top-notch, high-quality Mediterranean foods. I would recommend their brand any day. And they have plenty of other products to try including a Spinach Dip, Aegean Edamame Salad, Salsas, Wraps and much more. Cedar’s foods can be purchased online or at a store near you (use their handy-dandy Store Locator to find a retailer in your area). One of you will need that store locator as you will be sent TEN Free Cedar’s Product coupons AND a Cedar’s Mediterranean T-shirt (size XL).
