Must Have: Precidio Design Reusable Snack in the Box & Drink in the Box

Raise your hands if you love snacks and keep some in your purse, at home, and at work for when you’re feeling peckish. Of course, we usually carried our snacks around in baggies, which not only can open up in your purse, your snacks can get crushed. The same thing goes for reusable water/juice bottles. We’re not saying to put your beverage in baggies (perish the thought), but many water bottles tend to be a bit bulky or take up a lot of space in your bag. In comes Precidio Design and their range of stylish, reusable, BPA, BPS and Phthalate free drink and food storage products. The Precidio Design Snack in the Box Unique and Precidio Design Drink in the Box Unique containers are the coolest on-the-go containers to hit the market.

The Precidio Design Snack in the Box Unique features two separate chambers that each holds 6 ounces of your favorite dry snacks. Using USA-made Tritan, the body and the Tritan pop-up lids let you easily pour out the snack from each chamber individually. The Precidio Design Snack in the Box Unique keeps your snacks from being crushed or mushed and works as portion control so you don’t eat more than you planned.

The Precidio Design Drink in the Box Unique features a new slim and sleek way to carry your drink. Also made from tough USA-made Tritan™, this range of drink boxes are extremely durable. They boast a pop-up lid that won’t leak or squirt, so is safe in a bag or purse, and an integrated straw that is made from medical-grade food safe silicone. Its one-hand operation makes it perfect for use while working, studying or working out at the gym. Just snap this unique juice/water box’s secured lid closed to protect from spills! Love infused water? Add fruits slices, berries, mint or other flavors in your Precidio Design Drink in the Box for a tasty, low-sugar drink.

The Precidio Design Unique storage containers are available in four designs: Black on Black, Black lid with a Clear body, White on White, and White lid with a Clear body. You can choose to show off your healthy snacks or drinks, or discreetly carry your favorite treats and beverages. Both Precidio Design storage containers are easy to disassemble, are dishwasher-friendly, and will look new for more than 1500 dishwasher cycles (3-5 years!). The 12oz Drink in the Box Unique container is available for $14.99 each, while the 6oz Snack in the Box Unique retails for $9.99. Both are available now on www.amazon.com.

Let’s Sleep In: Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow

As one who cherishes sleep (those late night blog writing sessions do catch up), and typically experiences sweltering nights of sleep, having good solutions for a more restful night of sleep is essential. How do you enjoy a more restful and less humid night of sleep? With the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow, of course, a shredded style combination pillow that never goes flat, keeps you cool while you sleep, and never loses support.

The Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow, developed by Dr. Rick Swartzburg, D.C., is one of four Snuggle-Pedic products that help you enjoy a Mattress. What makes the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow different from other Down pillows? While other Down pillows are comfortable and conforming, they constantly need to be fluffed, they do not hold their shape throughout the night, they are a problem for those that suffer from feather allergies, they can be too dense and heavy, which in our case really makes us sweat while we sleep.

The Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow uses a proprietary mix of very special hypo-allergenic and extremely low V.O.C. Biogreen® memory foam and CertiPUR-US® certified foam. These small pieces are extremely soft and fluffy and make the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow lighter and more resilient than the typical shredded memory foam pillows found on the market.

While the Snuggle-Pedic conforms to your neck and head for proper orthopedic support, the fluffy, yet resilient and light fill used in the Snuggle-Pedic pillows will return adjust to every position you sleep in. The soft and luxurious Kool-Flow™ Micro-Vented Bamboo Cover, along with the soft and fluffy interlocking foam pieces offer an unprecedented breathability that allows air to circulate through the pillow and keep you cool all night long!

The Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow is a top rated pillow on Amazon, with over 7000 Amazon reviews. It comes available in three sizes and currently is available for special sale prices – standard, regularly $119.00, on sale for $49.99, queen regularly $149.00, on sale for $59.99, and king regularly $197.00, on sale for $69.99.

Could the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow help you get a more restful night of sleep?

Sanrio/Hello Kitty’s Gudetama, the Lazy Egg, Makes his U.S. Debut

Not since Humpty Dumpty and colorful Easter Eggs, has an egg so captured our hearts. Already a huge hit in Japan, the newest member of the Sanrio/Hello Kitty family, Gudetama – the lazy egg, will charm you with his adorable laziness. Gudetama is the ultimate slacker, he rocks himself to sleep in his shell, curls up in a bacon blanket, takes naps on a bed of rice, and has no motivation to do anything else but lay around.

Brand new to the US as of today, Gudetama makes his debut on Sanrio.com, and in select Sanrio stores. This lazy egg seeks to do nothing more than what he always does, but we do notice we share the same reactions to some things as he does, like Mondays, wanting to be surrounded by bacon, and those days we just don’t want to move. This adorable new Sanrio character makes his debut on a few limited edition products, such as pens, notebooks, mugs, and plates, ranging in price from $2.75 – $19.00, with much more to come. If you love Hello Kitty stuff, you’ll love what’s in store from Gudetama.

We’re personally fawning over the Ceramic Side Plate and 10oz Ceramic Mug, the perfect combination to enjoy a late breakfast on a lazy Sunday morning. Want to know more about Gudetama – the lazy egg, check out more of his adorable laziness on www.sanrio.com, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, but don’t disturb him much, he can’t be bothered.
