Why You Should Choose Metal Jewelry Over Plastic and Costume Jewelry

Metal jewelry goes the distance. Sure, plastic will outlive us all, but, jewelry made out of silver and gold will last longer. Have you ever seen an heirloom necklace that was made of plastic molding? With the exception of fake pearls? That’s a no. Handing down Catholic jewelry like a timeless earring and necklace or a brilliant ring is a rite of passage and a symbolic gesture that signifies the closeness between two people. Continue reading

Three Compelling Reasons to Switch to Organic Pajamas for Your Kids

Wondering what all the chatter is about kids organic pajamas? Do these fabrics really make a difference, and are they worth the switch to the organic lifestyle? Once you’ve seen some of the benefits for yourself, you’ll be able to see why more parents are finding organic the way to go for pajamas, bedding and more.

Sustainability

Factory farming isn’t sustainable, and mass production has led to inequality all across the world. Buying kids organic cotton pajamas, organic foods and other organic products is your way of encouraging more businesses to create sustainable business models that can grow with our population.

Health Benefits

Inorganic clothing and bedding is treated with chemicals for a variety of reasons, including harmful dyes. Bedding and mattresses may have harmful flame retardant chemicals applied too. Typically, this is done in good faith. Not maliciously, but buying boys and girls organic pajamas reduces the exposure to these chemicals. That lowers risks for asthma and other respiratory diseases.

Impact

Organic does cost more, and girls or boys organic pajamas are just one of many potential items out there. That’s why the organic lifestyle is so important. Even wealthy people are forced to pick and choose. Living organic means reducing clutter, and living a cleaner and more sustainable lifestyle.

As a final thought, consider taking the time to seek out fair trade products. Fair trade organic cotton can directly impact local communities most in need, funding the construction of important infrastructure they need to survive. If you can, encourage retailers to buy fair trade and support fair trade companies.

Bio: KoraVera is a kids organic pajamas clothing line dedicated to doing good in the world. At KoraVera, you can find truly clean sleepwear designed for young children.

Save Money on These 5 Beauty Products You Don’t Really Need

Article Written by : GelConet

Sometimes investing in skin care can really be worth it—and you’ll see the payoff looking right back at you in your mirror. But as happens with stocks, there are lots of bad skincare investments, money spent on stuff that is either minimally useful or completely useless. Here’s a look at 4 cosmetics products that don’t really help much with beauty concerns.

HAND CREAM. We all like it, it feels good and smells good, no doubt. But you don’t need a specific cream just for your hands. Any body lotion will be just as good—and smell just as nice, point out the skin care scientists at Adore Cosmetics.

ARGAN OIL. While it has vitamin E in it, lots of products out there also have vitamin E and cost a lot less. In addition, the heavy amounts of oleic acid can block your skin’s pores and cause blackheads.

FACIAL MISTS. Celebrities use Evian or some other fancy-schmancy water brand and supposed antioxidants in the water for some extra magic. If they want to overpay for plain old water and a couple of substances that won’t even reach your skin, that’s their concern. But you can get the same exact effect as them with $1.50 spray bottle and tap water with a drop or two of essential oils, claim Adore Cosmetics researchers.

LIP SCRUBS. You can give yourself a lip scrub with a toothbrush or wet washcloth—you don’t need a $100 cream to do this.

SNAKE VENOM. Ok, take some time to read the name of the substance again: snake venom. Since when have you ever heard “venom” of any kind as being good for the skin…or anything else? And no, we could not find studies in dermatology journals showing that the ingredients in snake venom creams actually reduce wrinkles or help skin in any verifiable way.

Whether you are taking Sicily vacations or a trip down to various cities in Italy, you will find that the weather in Italy is quite pleasant. Whenever you plan on visiting, you should take note of the time of the year that you go. If you’re visiting in the summer, then it is perfectly okay for you to be wearing light clothing and perhaps even a cardigan or a sweater over your top if you get cold quite easily. Shorts, of course, or skirts as far as women are concerned, should be a given.

Don’t forget to bring some sunglasses as well! After all, if you’re visiting one of the most fashionable and stylish countries on earth, you must dress accordingly as well. Continue reading
