They also fit right up my alley in terms of health and wellness, and fun fashion! You will find  some encapsulated information about each company.

The Softest Robe On The Planet + 20% Discount Code

I've hit a new milestone as a review blogger. I'm reviewing the softest bathrobe in the world! And it only took 5 years! Yes, I call it moving slowly and deliberately!
When I first began blogging, I really wanted to review a robe, a plushy white robe. Don't ask me why, but for me, if a company would let me review a robe, then I would be legitimate as a blogger. Now there are a lot of companies out there that make white bathrobes. But do you think that I could persuade any reputable companies, at the time, to let me review a bathrobe from their company? Not a chance. But plenty of ear buds, office supplies and health supplements! I'm kind of glad I was patient!

When I was given the opportunity to work with Cariloha once again, I knew exactly what I wanted to review--their plush white bathrobe, which  is the gold standard for bathrobes. And they even say it on the tags, "Softest Robe On The Planet."

This robe is so luxurious that I'm not sure I'm even going to wear it for awhile. I will just bask in the fact that I have this robe. I'll pull it out, and run my hands over the plush bamboo fabric and just admire it. I won't wear it for at least a week or two. I suppose I'm still getting used to the fact that I even have it. Strange, I know. I put it on for a second just so you could get an idea of what it looks like. I ordered the S/M, and I'm 5"5.
You should see what other amazing products Cariloha has though! For instance, they have a new 2-in-1 dress that can be worn as a cute skirt or a tube dress with spaghetti straps. In the men's department, they have a whole new selection of graphic tee shirts that are so soft and 3 degrees cooler than cotton! And so much more!

Right now you can take 20% off all items at Cariloha, even clearance items, when you use GALNEEDS20 at checkout! Good thru July 15!

'Balmy Bamboo Summer' $100 #Giveaway

The sticky, sweaty days of summer demand comfort. Softness, coolness and breathability all come to mind. Your clothes should have those qualities. Cotton is the most popular choice for summer, but the best choice is bamboo! Bamboo is the softest, coolest, most renewable resource on the planet. 
Welcome to the 'Balmy, Bamboo Summer' Giveaway, where 1 winner will win $100 to Cariloha, makers of ridiculously soft clothing, bedding, and bath accessories!  Hosted by A GAL NEEDS... and Co-Hosted by Parenting Healthy! 

Caribbean style and Hawaiian aloha were the inspiration behind Cariloha – a combination of the two words. With more than 20 years vacationing, working and serving in the Caribbean and Hawaiian Islands and the cruise ship ports throughout the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexican Rivera and Bahamas, the Cariloha team became steeped in the culture and lifestyle of the islands and the beachfront shopping experience.

We wanted to take our love of the Caribbean and Hawaii with us everywhere, and we realized that we weren’t the only ones who wanted to enjoy the islands day in and day out. Now you can feel like you're on vacation everyday with Cariloha bamboo clothing, bedding and bath.

Welcome to the Cariloha Bamboo Sheet Giveaway sponsored by A GAL NEEDS...and Cariloha Bamboo! Also, a big shout-out to my co-hosts, Susan Heim on Parenting, Chronically Content, Kathy's Savings, Science Of Couponing, Thoughts And Reviews, and Ottawa Mommy Club!

 It's the middle of winter and there is nothing better than snuggling up in bed with warm and cozy sheets to caress your skin.  I was given for review purposes a set of bamboo sheets from Cariloha and their claim is that they have the most comfortable sheets on the planet.  Wow. That's quite a claim - So I decided to take them up on it and this is what I found:

You won't be able to go back to cotton sheets after trying these 100% bamboo sheets.

Giveaway open to U.S. and Canada, must be 18+ years of age to enter, only one entrant per household.  Giveaway ends 2/7/14.  Good luck!

Cariloha Bamboo Clothing (A Review & $70 #Giveaway)

Cariloha_BambooBamboo grows in warm regions. I want to be in a warm region right now. But I'm not. I will settle for writing about Bamboo that grows in a warm region. One can only dream that someday it will also be warm here! 
The Carribean is warm and a place where wearing bamboo clothing would make a lot of sense. Thus, the first part of the name.  Can you guess where another warm region might be that would make up the second part of the name Cariloha? (I'll let you stew on that one) Did you know that when wearing bamboo clothing, your body temperature is 3 degrees cooler on average?  I learned something!  Also when I think of bamboo, I think of these hard yet pliable plants sticking up out of the water.  I didn't really translate that into being soft when it comes to clothing, bedding and linens but let me tell you, clothing made out of bamboo is extremely soft!  The same is said when it comes to bath towels, and sheets!  Wow, it is really something.  Bamboo sheets don't have a thread count per se, but they are softer and more durable than  4 or 5 hundred thread count sheets.  I was able to walk through the Headquarters at Cariloha in Sandy, UT and I got to physically feel the sheets, towels and clothing.  Everything was unbelievably soft.  Some of the pants, like Cargo Shorts, which are supposed to feel rather stiff and sturdy weren't as soft, but comparatively speaking, even those were soft.  So are you getting the message I am trying to convey here?  If you value softness in your stuff, Bamboo is the way to go!!!  If you value coolness in the summer heat, bamboo is the way to go.  If you are concerned about wearing the most eco-friendly material on the planet, bamboo is the way to go. It is the most renewable and sustainable plant in the world!

Another characteristic about Bamboo Clothing is that it is able to keep you from being stinky from sweat. Not that I ever sweat...or smell...ever.  But for those that do occasionally have that worry, the material is extremely breathable and also has some sort of anti-bacterial property that prevents sweating and odors. Who knew? 

 I was able to take home a couple of items!  They were the the Bamboo Skirt in Chocolate and one of their t-shirts in white.  I absolutely love these items.  The skirt is definitely for summer-strolling on the beach or out in the backyard with flip flops--something that I am patiently waiting for.  In the meantime, I will wear tights underneath, many tops and a jacket and a scarf and it will do nicely for winter garb.  
Sorry little fuzzy, but you get the idea!
The t-shirt is so soft, and cuddly.  I actually collect white t-shirts and this one is definitely my favorite because of the softness!  Even the bag they came in is made from bamboo!
If you are ever in a popular vacation spot, be sure to look for Cariloha because they are all over the map.  For instance, they are found in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Barbados, Grand Caymen, Kauai, Hawaii; Key West, Las Vegas, San Diego, Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Juneau, Alaska and more!  If you are dreaming about going to one of these places but aren't there quite yet, you can always order online!   
 I'm not done with Cariloha by any means.  No, this is just the beginning of my love affair with them.  I need to get some towels and linens because I want to have that luxury!  Oh, they have a sister company called Del Sol.  Ever heard about it?  It is every bit as unique and fun as Cariloha! Watch for more about this company later on as we are even closer to warm weather!
