Whether selecting Egyptian cotton bath towels or another cotton product of your choosing, we suggest a word of caution regarding the product label. If the label should read “cotton rich” the amount of actual cotton in the product may not be stated due to its small percentage. It would be better to select products that state 100% cotton or that clearly state the exact proportion of cotton in the fabric blend. This would ensure the product composition is one that you will be pleased with for days to come.
Now is the time for any help you can get to complete your shopping list, for the time is approaching. What to buy and where to get it and soon? So here is an idea, what about bath linens?
There are a profusion of colors, textures, and fibers to choose from. Cotton is cozy and bamboo is, oh so Eco. Then consider the colors, a palette of beautiful hues is available to accent anyone’s bathroom. And what of the texture, jacquard or lace trim? Hmmm.
Better take a look at those bath linens as a possible gift solution right now!
Seems like the Fall Season just began and already we have experienced high winds, Halloween, the children off to school, a major hurricane, a Presidential Election, Veteran’s Day, two snows, and Thanksgiving. Whew! Where does the time go? And now; why it’s time to be looking to the bright spot ahead that will end the year for us all in a way we commemorate around family and loved ones near and far.
For most of us that means preparing for that final year end Holiday of gift giving. That star of loving is in front leading us toward that special event we all look forward to, the Christmas Season in America; the Holiday of gift giving. Sending out the cards, baking cookies, shopping and accumulating the gift sets, and the multitude of specially chosen items we will prepare as presents to mail or place under the tree this year.
Much to do, much to mail, and much to prepare for. Many will enjoy the convenience of shopping on line as a great time saver, while some will continue to shop in the traditional way. Have you already started your shopping? Only 27 days to go.
Sporting a new business brings with it many daunting challenges. Finding just the right article to make available to your customers requires continuous research. All the hidden costs need to be taken into consideration in order to offer the article at a price the customer can afford and would choose to pay.
Much of our research lately has been involved with the category of quality bath robes. Finding a vendor who carries a brand name quality bath robe and at a reasonable cost is first and foremost these days. After all our mission statement says it well; Quality Merchandise at a Fair Price.

Judi and I both enjoy camping. Our favorite place to go, of late, is New England. Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine call to us often.
One of our trips took us to Vermont. There we stayed at a campsite called Horseshoe Acres. Nice people run the place and they were so kind and helpful to us. Actually, the way we happened upon the community was quite by accident. Our ancient 1988, “Minnie Winne” was being a little contrary to all those hills we chose to drive up and over. Just what you need when your on vacation, right?
We just happened to mention our dilemma and asked if there was a service near by that we could trust our motor home to for repairs. Well they were so nice and made a couple phone calls. Next thing we knew we had an appointment for the next morning to have it repaired, and very economically I might add. We are not likely to forget those folks up there in Vermont at Horseshoe Acres.
Finding nice people, good service, and economy makes for a good experience. Just like shopping to save money and yet purchase that gift set/basket as a token of thanks to good folks.
When it comes to enjoying the Summer season, a quick and spontaneous adventure is always a delight. Just to drop everything and get away for an unplanned day trip of sight seeing can be an enjoyable, and memorable time together.
We all have favorite places we love to visit again and again. Perhaps it is the park in the village green, or maybe run over to that quaint seaside vista where we can view moored boats and mingle with the other passers-by.
This would be relatively easy enough to accomplish spontaneously, including bringing along a picnic lunch we could savor in the shady glen or park. We’ll use the Picnic Backpack we recently acquired as a gift from our friends. The lunch will fit nicely inside and there are place settings for four, as well as a thermos pocket. Best of all, it goes with us easily as we trek to that special spot. Very outdoorsy. Very chic.
GO FOR IT!
History has shown that ancient Egyptians were noted for using fragrant oils from plants for religious rituals, and embalming rites. As time progressed, they continued to refine their use of these oils in medicine, cosmetics, and perfumes.
Modern research to date is limited on the scientific effects of aromatherapy. Yet, these limited studies have shown that aromatherapy may have health benefits, for:
1) Relief from anxiety, stress, and depression,
2) Improved quality of life, especially for sufferers of chronic health conditions.
Aromatherapy is thought to affect smell and skin receptors, which send messages through the nervous system to the brain; the part that controls the emotions. (the limbic system) The “Plant and Fruit Oils” used in aromatherapy are extracted from selected plants and fruits, and are then distilled, where they become highly concentrated oils. These oils are known as “Essential Oils”.
Through the use of various diffusers they can permeate our living atmosphere. They can be released through the burning of scented candles. They may also be applied to the skin as in lotions, bath oils or bath salts. Even without our knowing we enjoy these scents at the holidays, in our soaps and shampoos, when bathing, or when applying those skin lotions after a refreshing shower.
The fourth of July falls mid week this year. The season’s holiday can be an excellent time to enjoy some needed and well deserved recreation with family and friends, close to home. There are many activities and specialty events associated with “The Day” that one could attend throughout the Country, as well.
If your choice is to extend your boundaries toward events far afield, choose wisely your destination, travel safely, and leave the fire works to the professionals.
But if your preference is to center your rest and relaxation plans around the grill, pool, or deck this year, then make the most of this time. Perhaps affording yourself the opportunity to rest mind, body, and soul is in the plan. That refreshing, relaxing period of time to yourself. Just to soak in the tub, some aromatherapy, or applying a soothing, scented body lotion afterward, and cuddling up in a lush organic cotton bath robe or body wrap and savoring the moment. Mmm, my Spa.
Over the past two centuries, Egyptian cotton has prevailed as one of the world’s finest textile products due to its softness, strength, and superior yarn characteristics. What sets Egyptian cotton apart from other cotton products; you say?
Egyptian cotton is hand picked which guarantees strains of pure, high quality cotton. This process of hand picking places less stress on the fibers, compared with mechanical picking; thus, leaving the fibers straight and intact, which results in very long strands of cotton fiber. The combined length of these fibers make it possible to manufacture the finest of yarns without sacrificing the strength of the yarn. This natural characteristic eliminates the need to include other non cotton fibers for strength. This strength of fiber makes Egyptian fabrics more solid and more resistant to stress.
Because no other fibers are added to the yarns, fabrics made of 100% Egyptian Cotton are softer, finer, more absorbent, and last longer than any other cotton in the world. The fabric’s characteristic softness continues to manifest with each washing. Due, in fact, to Egyptian cotton’s superior ability to readily absorb liquids, the fabric yarns produce a deeper, brighter and more fade resistant color, when dyed. All of these factors combined have resulted in Egyptian cotton yarns being by far the best in the world for today’s cotton towels and bath linens. “A fine investment in quality”.
As you may know, Bamboo is flooding the market place these days. It is being used in flooring, kitchen articles, building materials, and now in the manufacture of luxurious, lush-feeling fabrics for bed, bath linens and robes, as well as wardrobes. Bamboo appears to be the up and coming fabric of the future due to its manifold attributes of appeal. Bamboo fabric has the luster of silk and the feel of cashmere and is perfect for persons with skin sensitivities and/or allergies. Bamboo fabric is strong, long lasting, yet retains its lustrous softness and vibrant color wash after wash. The fiber stays breathable for warm weather comfort and is warmer than similar cotton articles in cooler weather. When used in the manufacture of bath linens or robes, the fabric is surprisingly 60% more absorbent than even Egyptian cotton of similar manufacture. Bamboo is eco-friendly as well; because, as a sustainable resource it uses less energy to produce, and as a result has a very low impact on the world.
With its hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial, anti-static, and mold resistant qualities it might just be the fabric of choice worth a try for softer towels or luscious bath robes when adding to your bath essentials.
