Yacht Pullover
This fun style can be used for many occasions. I think it makes a cute cover-up. It’s available in five colors. Peacock blue is the color I have this in and I like that it is bright but also relaxing.
The fabric (50% poly / 37% cotton / 13% rayon sweater slub) is flattering and very soft. Sizing is accurate. Earth Creations is always a win シ

A little about our beginning

Crisp air, fresh sea breeze, and delicious Mediterranean food were the first stop on my journey. We grew up with simple, durable, handmade clothes that were easy to slip into. I’m forever grateful for my childhood on the sea and want to provide the same for my kids. 

 

henley - natural

Henley & Joggers

100% organic cotton

joggers - greece blue

Both the top and bottom are a size 4 which is the largest size available. Hopefully, Malu Organic will continue expanding their line and offer more sizes. Greece blue is a lovely shade. While a henley shirt and jogger sweat pants are both typical styles, the quality of fabric and the workmanship is first-rate. Love soft clothes.

Eco-friendly fitness clothing made of organic bamboo for a healthy body & a healthy earth!

 

 

The Green Apple Difference – Why Choose Bamboo

 

These yoga styles are all made from 60% Bamboo, 26% Organic Cotton, 14% Black Spandex. They are super soft, comfortable and earth friendly.

The 33″ Yoga Essential Fitted Flare Pant,

This comes in a long length and can be trimmed (without fraying) to what length you want. I cut off about 2″ and it looks good!

the 26″ Yoga Essential Legging,

I am not a “legging fit” kind of person. But on on the up side, they are very soft. 

the 11″ Zoe Yoga Essential Cami Bra,

The bra wasn’t able to be adjusted and felt heavy.

and the Old School Sweatpants

My fave Green Apple style. “Eco fun styling, vintage chic, luxurious softness, light weight and fun to wear pant for all occasions.” They are made with a bit more bamboo (70% Bamboo, 25% Organic Cotton, 5% Black Spandex). Super stylish and comfortable; they are the best bottoms.

Luglife.com

Products:

Lifestyle and travel bags & accessories! 

Great for: 

travel (Italy, anyone?), weekend getaways (cottage, please!), overnight trips, outdoor sports (hiking, biking + more!), local exploring, sporting events (why not go hands free?), baby needs, school needs!

 

UCB BLANKET + PILLOW

The lug® collection of undercover bears is a cuddle team of different bears/agents. They have different colors, faces, names, and even personalities! Agent Boots, the brown bear, is “one tough bear – a mighty force, no doubt. His strength is matched by none around; he’s stable as a rock. Cuddle in close with this big, strong bear, and carry him for health and stability whenever you need cover.” 

 

 

 

There is an inflatable pillow for the bear cover or you could use the blanket inside the bear cover for a softer shapable fit (assuming you don’t need the blanket) Both the bear pillow cover and the blanket are machine washable.

I’ve washed agent Gomer, the “green” bear, several times since I’ve had him (2014) and he is still soft and in good shape. I’ve had many uses for him over the years. Not surprising that it makes a great back-to-school idea. We head out in the morning with a cuddly back seat travel buddy. Sometimes he rides with mom up front !

Pillow Case Size: 11″w x 9″h x 3″d
Blanket Size: 35″w x 46″h

Recover Brands

RECOVER produces 100% recycled apparel.

This is an eco friendly brand that offers casual clothing for the entire family. This shirt is made from plastic bottles (8 per shirt) and salvaged cotton scraps.

Carbon

The medium Sunset recover tee fits closer to how most of my size small tees fit. so, I’d recommend maybe going up a size from what you usually wear.

The fabric felt a bit scratchy but then so do many shirts before the first wash. After the first wash it was normal comfortable and I’ve worn and washed (in cold/warm) this shirt multiple times and the fit has remained. Visit their website for a look at all the sustainable outdoor apparel available from this Western North Carolina company.

Paperback, 80 pages

This coloring book has a variety of clearly drawn images in black on thick white paper suitable for crayon, colored pencil, or even marker.  The elastic closure and attractive cover make it more of an art journal than a coloring book.The scenes of people (all girls) and fashion are a perfect coloring escape. There are no faces drawn on any of the drawings and this could be a likable or unlikable quality of the book. (liked by me) Scenes focus on the outfits, accessories, hairstyles, and the activity. Very nice; highly recommend.

The Curated Closet: A Simple System for Discovering Your Personal Style and Building Your Dream Wardrobe

The Curated Closet: A Simple System for Discovering Your Personal Style and Building Your Dream Wardrobe

Paperback, 272 pages

Is your closet jam-packed and yet you have absolutely nothing to wear? Can you describe your personal style in one sentence? If someone grabbed a random piece from your closet right now, how likely is it that it would be something you love and wear regularly? In The Curated Closet, style writer Anuschka Rees presents a fascinatingly strategic approach to identifying, refining, and expressing personal style and building the ideal wardrobe to match it, with style and shopping strategies that women can use every day.

I ended up skimming this very wordy book. Not very practical and way too involved. There were some color pictures; I think the book could use less words and more pics. If I had enough free time, maybe I would find this book fun. Maybe.
