Professional Massage Relief at Home ~ MyoBuddy Massager Review

One gander at the almost comical expressions of relief people display when trying the MyoBuddy® Massager, and you'll be dying to give this a try.  At least that's the reaction my husband and I both had when we watched this.  Filmed at what appears to be a trade show booth, it's pretty convincing.   Though professional grade, this nifty handheld massager is a soothing and helpful tool you can own and use right in your own home.  It can assist in boosting workout recovery.  Or simply aid in relieving those painful knots from tension and stress that we so often hold in our shoulders and upper back. Between my husband and I, we work long hours at an office computer job, lift weights, work out, and train for marathons.  Here's our experience - an honest MyoBuddy® Massager Review. MyoBuddy® Massager Review ~ What You Receive When you order a MyoBuddy® Massager Pro, it arrives in a compact box.  This is not a flimsy, lightweight tool.

Why You’ll Love Dromedaris Kara Boot

Mid-height boots are hugely popular, but finding just the right pair can be a challenge.  Comfort is at the top of my list, followed by my penchant for rich looking leather. I'd heard great things about Dromedaris, known for their high quality leather boots made in Portugal.  The pair I happily chose to review is one of their original, most famous styles:  the Dromedaris Kara Boot.

Dromedaris features such creative and funky styles, prints, and colors that if you'd planned on buying a neutral pair (which they do offer)... you're going to have a hard time sticking to your guns.  Whimsy is the order of the day with many of their new patterns including embroidered flowers and denim patches with lace overlays.   Their 3D Technology results in a soft cushioned insole, and serves as the foundation of their women’s collections.  This … [Read more...]

PrAna Offers Sustainable Gifts for Adventure Lovers

PrAna is one of my favorite versatile, adventure-ready brands. Not just for yogis, their fun offerings work just as well for travel and hiking, as a day at the office. It's the type of clothing I love to invest in, as they are quality made and eco-friendly. If you're looking for a gift that can brag sustainability, be sure to shop the mens and womens styles at prAna.  Their use of fabrics such as organic cotton, recycled wool, and recycled polyester make for a purchase you can feel good about.

PrAna Stacia Sweater I'm not a big sweater wearer, even though I think they look classy.  So the prAna Stacia Sweater was a surprising hit with me, and I've been amazed how often I wear it.  The front design is delicate, and the longer tail in back adds a flattering detail to the design.

OluKai Malie ~ Soft, Gorgeous Boot with Hawaiian Vibes

OluKai is known for "bringing the Aloha vibe along with them wherever they are in the world".  This Hawaii shoe brand originally started out with beachy, warm weather styles.  Their focus was on comfort and quality, with a touch of that laid back tiki-inspired flair. Now they’ve brilliantly expanded with a premium leather boot line.  They've used their same signature footbed that's gained them a dedicated following, and nicely transitioned it into some new fall/winter season styles. Some of the new styles totally exude that Hawaiian flair, and if I were able to wear heels, my first choice would have been this beauty…   Isn’t the whip stitching detail fantastic?  So unique and classy. But alas, I’ve always wanted a pair of classic chelsea boots to wear roaming around Europe one day.  I knew I'd want a pair that was fabulously comfortable, and the OluKai Malie got rave reviews for comfort. So that was my pick, and here’s what I found after wearing a pair for a … [Read more...]

Always in search of the perfect travel wrap, I was happy to get to try out a  Mari Convertible Sweater.

I'm all about comfort, and love the casual yet classy look. The colors and any patterns are fairly … [Read more...]
