Giving Gifts That Benefit The Planet – prAna

holly

 

This season I’m focusing on finding gifts for my lovely family that will encourage growth, happiness and peace.  That could be as literal as giving a beautiful Amaryllis or interpreted metaphorically as sharing a product that is good for our environment.  I was recently introduced to a clothing line that checks all the boxes, and you too can give gifts that benefit the planet when you chose from – prAna.

More than ever, people just like you and me are seeking ways to spread positivity in our country. One way to do that is to make sure every purchase you make and every gift you give has a positive impact on our planet.  I’ve discovered a great line of clothes that fit the bill –  prAna. The cool clothing line prAna offers organic, hemp, sustainable, and fair trade items so that consumers feel great about the things they wear and the items they give.

I decided to take my new Mariette Dress out on my recent Small Business Saturday shopping trip last weekend.

I’m going through that “delightful” time in my life where I could break out in a sweat in the freezing cold. Argh. I was very curious how I would handle this material and, I’m very happy to report, that I felt very comfortable in this sweater dress.  Fabric consists of Organic cotton blend sweater knit, 70% Organic Cotton / 30% Acrylic.

Please check out their website – http://www.prana.com/ –  and see their cool designs.  When you find something to add to your cart do yourself a favor and save 15% off your entire order.  Use this Promo Code:  BLOGF16ANHA

When you get your new clothes share a pic!  I’d love to see what you chose!

Travelers – Add Downy Wrinkle Releaser To Your Bag!

 

Ironing just isn’t my thing.  Of course I like the look of not being all wrinkled however, the task of actually ironing is right up there with going to the dentist – I know it’s necessary but I’d rather not. Now that I’ve discovered Downy Wrinkle Releaser ironing is a task I can cross off my list!  And for you Spring Break travelers I recommend you add Downy Wrinkle Releaser in your bag so you can spend time relaxing and having fun, not ironing.  (Unless you enjoy ironing – I’m not judging wink).

Do You Know What You Should Wear For An Hourglass Body?

With Spring arriving you might be looking at your wardrobe and thinking ‘Time for something new!’  It’s clear that certain styles create a more flattering look for each body type and today I’ll focus on items that work well for an hourglass-shape body.  There are some great prices now, so you might want to do a little online shopping too :->

Scoop Neckline Tie Waist Top

New Directions® - New Directions Plus Size Scoop Neckline Tie Waist Top

New Directions® – New Directions Plus Size Scoop Neckline Tie Waist Top – $24.00, 9.50 shipping – Available at Belk.com

If you are a jeans and t-shirt girl (that’s pretty much me) the flair of the tie waist will give a little oomph to your look.  Relaxed and a touch of ‘Yeah, I’m sassing it up today’.

 

Wrap Cardigan Sweater

Rafaella - Women's Multi Wrap Cardigan Sweater, Charcoal Tweed Heather, Large

Rafaella – Women’s Multi Wrap Cardigan Sweater, Charcoal Tweed Heather, Large – $30.79, 5.48 shipping – Available at Amazon.com

Along with my typical jeans and t-shirt look you’ll most likely see me in a cardigan.  With warmer weather approaching something light weight is in order.  I need (a.k.a.want wink) to get this!  Add a belt to really show off your waist.

 

Mid Rise Skinny Denim Jeans

Levi's - Mid Rise Skinny Denim Jeans For Women Night Fall 16

Levi’s – Mid Rise Skinny Denim Jeans For Women Night Fall 16 – $35.88, 8.95 shipping – Available at Cabelas

Levi’s.  Ah yes, the classic denim.  And thank you for this Mid Rise! (That low rise?! Ugh, don’t get me started.)

 

Fitted Blazer

Joie - Women's Neville French Terry Fitted Blazer - Soft Joie - Dark heather gray (LARGE)

Joie – Women’s Neville French Terry Fitted Blazer – Soft Joie – Dark heather gray (LARGE) – $178.00, 13.50 shipping – Available at Neiman Marcus

Hourglass shapes should have the top article of clothing come in at the waist to avoid a boxy look. And you can’t go wrong adding a blazer to your wardrobe.  Use it as your lightweight jacket, pair it with a scarf.  This look goes great with jeans or a long, floral skirt.

 

Mid Rise Skinny Jean

7 for All Mankind - Women's Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans, Cranberry - 7 For All Mankind - Cranberry (26)

 

Fitted Jacket With Buttoned Cuffs

La Redoute - Womens Pure Linen Slightly Fitted Jacket With Buttoned Cuffs

La Redoute – Womens Pure Linen Slightly Fitted Jacket With Buttoned Cuffs – $46.79, 4.99 shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace

Spring and Summer is the time to wear linen.  Definitely brings denim shorts up a couple of notches.

 

V Neck Mini Dress

Amoin - Amoin Women V Neck Multilayer Stripe Splicing Bodycon Pencil Mini Dress [A6030],Blue,XX-Larg

Amoin – Amoin Women V Neck Multilayer Stripe Splicing Bodycon Pencil Mini Dress [A6030],Blue,XX-Large – $10.70, Free shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace

There will be no guessing about your figure in this hourglass flattering design!

 

Long Wrap cardigan

Soma Intimates - Melange Button Front Long Wrap

Soma Intimates – Melange Button Front Long Wrap – $44.99, 5.95 shipping – Available at Soma Intimates

This wrap has a nice benefit of having a button closure, draping nicely.

Giveaway! Tommie Copper Compression Apparel - Ann Again and again Reviews

 

I have stayed true to my goals of exercising more with the intention of becoming stronger and, hopefully, leaner.  (The strength part is happening, it’s the “leaner” part that’s taking some extra effort with this late-4o’s body of mine.)  I’m used to exercising in either yoga pants or lycra based workout wear and I’ve felt fine about the support those materials offered.  However, I have been introduced to performance wear by Tommie Copper and it’s changing my workout world!  And I have Tommie Copper Compression Apparel to give to one lucky winner of Ann Again and again Reviews!

I feel muscle support, freedom of movement and – the most important trait for me – Tommie Copper material cools your skin.  I hate sweating!  This workout wear is great! AND… they’re are having a great sale this weekend for Memorial Day. Check them out here!   Really good site!  The soft polished copper fabric features UPF 50 sun protection and Cool Copper™ moisture management to keep your skin cool and dry in any activity.  Here’s what you get in Tommie Copper Performance wear:

PERFORMANCE 2.0

  • Reduces muscle fatigue, damage, and injury
  • Enhances muscle and joint performance
  • Helps shorten muscle and joint recovery time
  • Improves circulation
  • Increased oxygen to the muscles
  • Increased range of motion
  • Cool Copper™ moisture wicking, drying and cooling
  • Permanent anti-odor technology inhibits growth of odor causing microbes
  • UPF 50 rating protects against 99% of the sun’s harmful rays

 

I was provided the Women’s Performance Compression Capris and the Women’s Recovery Compression Short Sleeve Shirt.  The material is light weight and provides comfortable support.  And… it’s cool!  Literally cool to your skin.  During a workout I discovered this when I breathing hard trying to maintain a Downward Dog, I blew on my legs in frustration and it felt like a cool breeze just came in the room.  I needed that!  The moisture wicking material helps keep me going instead of wanting to stop since I feel gross and sweaty.  (I just don’t like it.  Oh well.)

Tommie Copper provides workout wear for women and men.  There are compression garments for almost every body part and workout wear that will support and flatter you in your efforts to get, and stay, fit.  My items have washed well, no shrinkage, and have kept their pre-wash performance wear traits.   Now, after all this talk of how wonderful Tommie Copper is, I bet you’d be interested in winning an item for yourself wouldn’t you? :->  Check out what’s available at www.TommieCopper.com and let me know what piece looks right for you and your fitness endeavors.  Enter to win through the RaffleCopter below.  Good luck!  (Open to US and Canadian residents.)
