Bamboo Tranquility

The mission is simple, to provide you with the best quality sheets at the best price. Every sheet from Bamboo Tranquility is made with 100% Viscose from bamboo. They have an extremely high thread count of 300, comparable to 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. They are far more breathable that non bamboo sheets and are perfect for any climate and season. They are also very eco friendly. Cotton takes three times as much water to grow as bamboo.
These wont be the cheapest sheets on the market, nor will they be the most expensive, but they will be the best bamboo sheets you can find. Bottom line.

These sheets are soooo soft. And amazing for people like me who like to be cooler at night. Not that it gets super hot in Minnesota, but I am becoming a woman of a certain age, ahem. Great for keeping you cool and comfy!

Hartz Expands Popular Delectables Lickable Treat Line for Cats

The Hartz Mountain Corporation announces the expansion of the popular Delectables Lickable Treats, the first wet cat treat line, with five new flavors including Bisque Kitten with Tuna, Bisque Kitten with Tuna & Chicken, Stew with Chicken & Veggies, Bisque with Tuna & Veggies, and Chowder with Tuna & Veggies. Delectables Lickable Treats, available in 1.4 ounce pouches with three unique and delicious textures including stews, bisques, and chowders, was launched in January 2015.
"Delectables Lickable Treats for cats is a new and better way to treat your cat and make them happy because it is super delicious and easy to eat," says Lester Ding, Brand Manager. "We have expanded our line to address the unique nutritional needs and taste preferences of kittens with Kitten Life stage," says Ding. "Our three additional vegetable-centric additions are appealing treats made with real chicken, tuna, and vegetables and are ideal for cat parents who love to pamper their pets." Ideal as an in-between meal treat or as a savory topper for dry food, Delectables Lickable Treats' convenient, single-serve pouches provide cats with tempting treats made with real chicken, seafood, and vegetables. Delectables Lickable Treats are available in multiple varieties including regular, life stage (for cats 10+ and 15+ years old and now for kittens up to 12 months old) and in 5 and 12-pack variety packs. "Cats can be finicky and over time, their appetite may diminish which can be distressing to the cat and cat parent," says Georgette Wilson, DVM, Director of Scientific and Medical Affairs. "Delectables is a great solution, especially for older cats who may find certain foods to be either difficult to eat due to dental disease or unappealing due to their decreased sense of smell." "Delectables is the only wet cat treat brand with products formulated specifically for older cats," adds Ding. "Our Delectables Senior line is enhanced with vitamins and is highly palatable - benefits that are vital for mature cats. They lick their bowls clean!"
Delectables Lickable Treats is also excited to announce "Empty Bowl," a national advertising campaign for the second half of 2017. It will include a targeted national TV commercial as well as digital and social media campaigns. On Hartz's Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages, consumers are invited to share photos and videos of how crazy fast their cats lick up Delectables using hashtags #lickitloveit, #emptybowl, and #catsgocrazy4Delectables, and they will participate in weekly drawings for a chance to win Delectables Lickable Treats. Consumers will also see videos featuring "celebricats," product reviews by prominent cat bloggers, and broadcast and press coverage.

Summer Weekend Trip Essentials

Summer is here and it’s time to book your weekend getaways. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, and all the weekends in between, summer is jam packed with various social events and outdoor activities that leave us fleeing our weekday responsibilities for a few days of fun. Packing for these weekends can be stressful (and often last minute), so here's a list of essentials you’ll need to be prepared for a weekend away this summer. Bon voyage!

1. Heliocare Daily Use Antioxidant Formula.
This clinically proven, dermatologist-recommended, natural dietary supplement contains Fernblock PLE Technology, a powerful antioxidant formula that aids in eliminating free radicals caused by factors you’re likely to encounter during your weekend trips. Factors include pollution, sun exposure, certain foods, excessive alcohol, and even exercise. Now vegan and free of gluten and artificial dyes, Heliocare capsules have antioxidant effects to maintain younger-looking, more resilient skin.

2. Bathing Suit and Shorts.
Whether you’re headed to the beach, pool, or just want to soak up the sun, you’re definitely going to need one (or more!) bathing suit. Throw a pair of shorts on with it and hit the beach bar for the ultimate laid back “surfer girl” look.

3. Jean Jacket.
Hot summer days can turn to chilly nights. Add this extra layer in the evening to keep you warm while still looking fashionable. 

4. Sandals.
These shoes are a must for any warm weather vacation. Whether you prefer flip-flops, gladiators, or jellies, you’ll need a pair of these every day!

5. Moisturizer.
Salt water, chlorine, and sun exposure can dry your skin, so be sure to frequently lather up with your favorite moisturizer.

6. Sunglasses, Sunscreen, and a Hat.
Protect your skin from sun damage by applying SPF 30 or higher before going outdoors. Don’t forget to reapply. And whether your style is a baseball cap or oversized floppy hat, don’t forget to pack a hat and some sunglasses to protect eyes and the delicate area around the eyes from harsh sun rays.

7. Phone Charger.
It’s likely the last thing you’ll pack but you know you will need it. A dead phone is a downer and can be nerve-wracking in an unknown place, so always make sure it’s fully juiced before heading out the door.

With these “must-have” travel items, the fear of “forgetting something” won’t put a damper on your travels plans. So, whether you’re heading on a road trip or a beach getaway, be sure to pack smart and have a summer worth remembering!

Heliocare Daily Use Antioxidant Formula retails for $29.99 (60 capsules) at Walgreens locations nationwide and $14.97 (30 capsules) at Walmart nationwide. For more information, please visit or

Choosing Eco-Friendly Material for Your Home Furnishing 

If you are using reusable grocery bags, carrying around your BPA-free water bottle and driving an electric vehicle, you are taking conscious steps toward an eco-friendly lifestyle. But if you're ready to take your environmentally savvy choices one step further, it might be time to invest in green materials for your home. From your patio and living room to your bedrooms and office, there are plenty of ways to transform your home into a more eco-friendly abode. Not sure where to start? Follow this guide to find the furniture and decor that's both mom and Mother Earth approved.

Reclaimed and Recycled Material

If you are looking for reclaimed wood furniture, keep an eye out for the Rainforest Alliance's "Rediscovered Wood Certification," which ensures the wood furniture you are purchasing is made from reclaimed materials. Why? Not only do they have a shorter supply chain, they are an efficient resource that takes advantage of old furniture, houses or other pre-used materials that are ready to be recreated into your next dining room table or outdoor patio furniture. If you prefer metal or plastic, look for furniture made of recycled material, which requires fewer resources, less processing and promotes less waste ending up in the landfill.
In case you were wondering, reusing these materials does not mean their quality will deteriorate over time. In fact, thanks to modern technology, the quality of recycled material increases with the length of time it stays in the recycle loop.

Certified Sustainable Wood

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) promotes environmentally sound, socially beneficial and economically prosperous management of the world's forests. FSC certified wood ensures that the product comes from responsibly managed forests that do not lead to deforestation, and also ensures that the wood provides environmental, social and economic benefits to the community while maintaining good working conditions for employees. For those interested in every step of the manufacturing process, the FSC also provides documented chain of control of the the wood so you know exactly how your wooden desk came to fruition. Our planet needs more trees to absorb the carbon dioxide we emit and produce the oxygen we need to breathe. Buying wood furniture might seem counterproductive, however, if you're purchasing sustainable materials that are harvested from tree farms that keep the environment in mind, you'll still be making an eco-friendly choice that does not lead to deforestation.

Low-Toxicity Furniture

When considering the health of the environment, it is important to also evaluate the impact furniture might have on the health of your family. Factors to consider include wood finish, adhesives, upholstery fabric, whether fire retardants were used and coating for waterproofing and soiling prevention. This might all seem overwhelming with so many factors to keep in mind, however, if you're purchasing from a company that has already adapted a green mindset, it is very likely they are also considering the health of their consumer. For the official seal, look for Greenguard-certified furniture that ensures low toxicity that is natural, untreated or has low chemical emissions, meaning it is safer for your family as well as the environment.

Directed by Emmy-winning filmmakers Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton, produced by Oscar winner Roy Conli, with original songs by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson, Olaf's Frozen Adventure will be in theaters for a limited time beginning Nov. 22nd.

“I’m thrilled that Disney Animation’s featurette Olaf's Frozen Adventure will be coming to theaters in November with Pixar’s CoCo", said John Lasseter, chief creative officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. “It’s a perfect pairing – they’re both beautiful, heartfelt films about families and how people carry traditions forward. I can’t wait for audiences to get to see both of these terrific projects together on the big screen.”

Olaf's Frozen Adventure celebrates characters who won over audiences worldwide when Frozen first hit the big screen in 2013. Earning more than $1.27 billion globally, the film won two Academy Awards (best animated film and best original song with “Let It Go”) and a Golden Globe (best animated feature film). Slated for November 2019, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ untitled feature-length follow-up to the hit film reunites filmmakers Jennifer Lee, Chris Buck, and Peter Del Vecho with the Grammy and Oscar-winning songwriting duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
