A Great and Soft Gift for Christmas

Oh yes, this for sure is something that can actually be gifted whole year-round! But to those of you who are having a hard time finding something for a friend, loved ones and those "who have everything", this is one of my suggestions. The 3-piece Egyptian Cotton Towel Sets are a beautiful update to any bathroom. Who wouldn't appreciate a new set? :)
What I love about this towel set:
1) It includes One Bath Towel - 30"x55"; One Hand Towel - 20"x30" & One Face Towel - 13"x13" 
2) It comes in multiple color options: Black, Chocolate, Charcoal, Cream, Forest Green, Latte, Light Blue, Navy Blue, Plum, Purple, Red, Rust, Seafoam, Stone, Teal, Toast, Tea Rose, White
3) The pattern is simply solid in color which is great for any bathroom style.
4) It is made from 100% Egyptian Cotton which is really soft!
5) Each towel is featured with a hanging hook for easy hanging
6) Last but not the least, it is machine-washable. :D
The color I chose was Light Blue and I was really surprised when I received it. It's the thickest towel set we have at home. There's no smell upon opening the package though I washed it before using. I always do that with new clothes/linens. 
I also carefully looked at intricate pattern and it was sewn really nice. I only found one loose thread which didn't really made any negative effect on the towel. 

I was not compensated to do a review of the product/s mentioned above. I was given a free towel set to facilitate my review but everything was based on my honest opinion.

Btipsy Cocktail Muddler Review and Giveaway

I don't really drink much, just occasionally. Honestly, I do not know how to mix alcoholic drinks, not one! I do have friends though who knows how to prepare cocktails drinks for special events and they always wow me. That's why this Btipsy Cocktail Muddler got me interested.

I never knew how easy it was to prepare drinks for guests using a muddler. There are actually a few things I like about this product. First, it doesn't slip (most probably because and if you use it the correct way, like above). The muddler's weight is right enough (not too heavy so as not to make your hands tired) to crush ingredients. I also admire the quality as to how it was made. There were no scratches on the silver metal when it arrived (unlike some other products I've received previously).
Besides mixing mojitos and other cocktail drinks, I found it useful with other kitchen chores too. Like for example, in baking banana bread and in making mashed potatoes! Just look at how those little hands became really helpful. This muddler also works perfectly with kids' hands I should say!
Potato Masher!
For baking banana bread!
I recommend this as a simple present for friends. I believe it's quite affordable, they set the right price. If you click the link to Amazon below, you'll learn more about the product details.

Do You Use USDA Organic Spices?

As some of you might know, I love baking. I actually have a couple of spices at home but I never thought some of it are available in plastic packaging. I used to think they only come in plastic cans or small bottles. Glad I found something via like nutmeg via because I just realized it's cheaper. I guess I'll be buying my spices in bulk from now on. :)
So, what do I like about this product?

  • Certified USDA Organic Ground Nutmeg
  • High Purity
  • Intense Aroma
  • Great Taste
  • No salt, No MSg, Non-GMO, No Ethylene Oxide treatment Non-Irradiated
  • All Natural, No Artificial Colors, Flavors or Preservatives
  • Packed in resalable bag and completely sealed to preserve aroma, purity and to avoid contamination.
The only thing that concerned me was, when I received the product, I think it differed a lot from the packaging shown above. I would have taken a photo but I already opened the packaging and transferred it to another container. Spell excited. It looked more like a plastic of the same size probably but with a printed stick-on label. Not like the one shown above, the label somehow looks like it was printed on a stick-on paper which I think is less attractive. But I guess what's more important is the quality of what's inside, right? That I think was met.

I also didn't notice an expiration date. Maybe because spices has a longer shelf life? 

Anyway, I think I'll be buying more spices in bulk because I use them oftentimes. 

How about you, what spices do you have at home? Are they organic too?
