Standard

03230C_4067_1The temperatures are rising here in NYC and it’s starting to get really uncomfortable to be outside for too long. We’ve still got an entire summer ahead of us and even though I, for one, would rather stay indoors with the AC blasting, I’ve got kids to entertain and I want to make sure I minimize sun damage to my skin. Coolibar is a great company for garments that provide protection – no less than UPF 50+. This means you’ve got 98% coverage from the harmful rays of the sun and with such a large selection of items and styles, you’re bound to find something that fits your own style.

PACT Men’s Loungewear: Perfect for Father’s Day!

Standard

52d7260ff2343Father’s Day is coming up and I’ve been looking for something nice for my husband. Every evening when he gets home from work he helps put the kids to bed, changes into something comfortable and plops down on the couch, completely exhausted. Comfortable loungewear is key and this is where PACT comes in. Not only is PACT a great company for super-soft, organic cotton clothing, it is a great company period. Why?

Each year is different and for this year PACT is supporting various social projects in cotton-growing villages. On top of that they’ve got really cool designs that the man in your life will love! Here are some of my favorites: Read the rest of this entry
