Satva Living

Stylish & Organic active lifestyle wear for the socially-conscious

The Sanskrit word, Satva, is a state of mind in which the mind
is steady, calm and peaceful. Satva means pure.

Wow someone with Satva fashion. The two Satva items I’ve reviewed below are absolutely wonderful. These are clothes that are “free from chemicals including: bleaches, toxic waxes, sulfur and heavy metals commonly used in the production of clothing.” This is so refreshing a find. {I’ve given up with most retail apparel shopping because what’s offered is scratchy, chemical smelly, gaudy-dyed stuff}

Satva Organic Warrior Bear Kids Toddler Yoga Tee

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.

D Is for Dress-Up

hardcover, 36 pages, Chronicle Books

Children’s picture book for ages 3-6 years

Maria Carluccio’s playful fashion alphabet celebrates the fun of getting dressed—and getting dressed up! From a sophisticated bow tie to a warm wool hat, this diverse celebration of what we wear from A to Z invites kids to get creative and embrace their own unique style.

The ABC’s of What We Wear. No story, just letters and words. Each letter of the alphabet has a clothing match of an item you wear or a clothing related word such as A -apron, Z- zippers.  The illustrations give this alphabet compilation a story feel. The scenes are relaxing.  My reader and I like to think of additional words for the letters (like P- pants, pajamas, poncho or paisley). This is a cute book especially for little girls.

Ponya Bands

Sweatbands

Our bamboo-lined sweatbands (bamboo backing pictured below) truly absorb sweat, keeping it from running down your face and into your eyes. Ponya Bands sweatbands also hold hair firmly in place and they stay in place on your head so you won’t have to reposition your sweatband during your workout. These sweatbands come in a variety of patterns and come in two, three and four inch widths.

Headbands

Simply put – they don’t slip!  Our non-slip headbands stay in place because they are lined with velvet, which has soft raised fibers that grip the hair. Pressure point headaches are also eliminated because our headbands are made entirely out of comfortable stretch fabric rather than connecting to velcro or elastic. These headbands are offered in a variety of patterns and either a one or two inch width.

Read about the Ponya choice of fabrics: Bamboo, Spandex, and Velvet. It’s “what makes all the difference”.

Made in the good old U.S. of A., Ponya sweatbands and headbands are superior to anything else I’ve tried. I’ve relied on the sweatband in the latest sweltering heat wave to keep hair back off my forehead. (also wore by my little reviewer and fit fine) The headband style is my favorite.  Pretty – Stays put with short hair – No headache consequences.

Non slip headband with velvet in pink, blue, black, green, purple and orange onwhite that does not slip.

Ponya offers a varied selection of pattern choices for both styles. Reasonable shipping of only 2.99 or Free with a $35 order. They are a great back-to-school accessory. I am such a fan of Ponya bands!
